Back Up Camera

Anyone own or know of someone who has the iBall brand wireless back up camera. According to their literature camera is attached to a magnetic mount that can secured to the receiver of the TV (aimed at the hitch unit) and the wireless screen unit plugs into cigarette lighter. Looks like a fairly simple back up camera system?

You will find that the wireless units get static on the screens if you are near a WIFI hotspot or have a Bluetooth connected device like your phone connected to a handsfree radio setup. Even the cheap wireless Variety store camera at times will interfer and show their image instead of the one you want. They also degrade quickly depending on the number of metal surfaces the signal has to pass through.
My new truck already has the camera wired in the tailgate. I wanted a camera out the back of the Trailer for backing up and thought maybe for Highway lane change safety I added a clip on Rearview Mirror TFT monitor for $50.00 and a Infrared wired Camera for $28.00. The Infrared gives you the night visability without backup lights on the trailer.
Used RG6 coax cable available anywhere that does satellite stuff. Buy a pair of RF to RCA adapters at Home depot for the camera and monitor connections as they come with RCA phono plug connections.
Use the standard RF Male Female for the connection at the tongue
Wired the power for the camera into the running lights on trailer. Wired the TFT display into the hot for the console map lights
Picture is clear and crisp Day or Night out the back of the trailer. Works better than the extension mirrors for me. There are lots of mirror and camera units on Ebay or Amazon. Add a little silcone to the camera case to make it more waterproof. I know they are all cheap China made stuff but there are limited choices any more on these type of electronics.
