Rear view Camera

I have now done this twice on trailers Both Jayco's
I purchased Wired color night vision camera's off ebay for cheap.. $25.00 each
I also purchased a 7 inch TFT rear view mirror display about 45.00
I leave it on going down the road
Just glance at the rear view mirror and you are looking out the back
I wired it from back to Front of trailer with Coax cable and RF to Coax adapter.
HD has the coax cable RG6 and the RF to Coax adapter. Get enough cable to make the whole run to the rear of Truck and from Rear of trailer to tongue plus a foot or so for tie in. Used a coax slip on connector at the bumper between Truck and Trailer connection
Powered the camera off the running lights
Ran the coax from the bumper up into the truck cab
Found power in the overhead from the courtesy lights
No interference on the camera signal at all.
Downside of the camera is they do bleach out if the sun is shining right into the lenses but for under $100 investment it works so well!

Problem with wireless camera setup is limited distance they will transmit as they normally run in the same Frequency as Bluetooth devices and same specs on the power they can use to broadcast the signal.
So if you have your phone BT connected for hands free in your vehicle you can and will get interference or from other vehicles on the road.

1 year old 32.5 ft Coleman Expedition A/C

Uncovered my TT to get ready for trip and found out a/c will not cool. contacted Manuf. -advent , div. of ASA Electronics. They are extremely nice and helpful. sending new unit to replace the old one. QUESTION: Anyone have any experience with the unit? Would I be better served with another brand? Need some advice. Also bought unit From CW and will now not let their service dept touch my TT.

This sounds like a solution for those who may be budget conscious, since the wireless Voyager system is just under $600. But I can testify that bluetooth does not interfere with my signal, and my camera transmits from the rear of the trailer to the windshield of my tow vehicle. So interference is not a factor nor is transmitting distance. Installation of the wireless is easier. I would be concerned with longevity of the cheaper cameras in the weather. Some are better than others in that regard.

I had no problems with a wireless on my Truck Camper. I have ordered a wireless on the same frequency for my 25 foot TT. I intend to mount it to the luggage rack or rear ladder and pull power off either a clearance light or the bathroom fan (under a maxaire vent).
