The power is normally somewhere on the back up light wire (flashers??). Just find or make up a switchable continuous 12VDC wire and it will be on whenever you want to look behind your rig.

Can you not mount a small tupperware container and place the transmitter in that?

Finished installing it this afternoon. Screwed the camera mount into the upper back of the trailer. The wires I ran along the top edge, down the back right corner and along he length of the trailer, along the frame. I used small clamps and screws on the rear to hold the wire and then used tie straps underneath. I wired he power into the running lights so that the camera/transmitter come on when I turn on the lights.

The transmitter is located under the trailer at the front. Excellent reception and the quality f the picture is very good.

So, for the cost of a very good GPS for RVing plus $130 for a camera, I have the best of both worlds. Nice side note, I can also use the system as a rear view mirror to keep an eye on the idiots who are trying to draft my slipstream.

Back up camera

I recently purchased the Garmin 760 LMT and BC20 for my XLR 29HFS Toy Hauler. I mounted the camera in the rear top center above the ramp door. I also purchased the 50' extension cable and mounted the transmitter on the nose of the TH. Instead of connecting power to the backup lights I connected it to a 12V source via a toggle switch mounted on the dash of my truck therefore I can toggle back and forth from the GPS and the camera from the drivers seat. Haven't towed it yet, but I think it will be just what I was attempting to accomplish.

Although I don't pass traffic very much, when I do I believe the camera will allow me to see when I've cleared a passed vehicle.

You probably won't need the toggle switch for 12V power to the camera (unless you want to give the camera a rest). That's because you can change between the GPS and the camera display by hitting a "button" on the GPS display screen, even when the camera is powered-up all the time.

That's good to know. I must have missed that in the manual. Thanks!

Not a bad idea. I just need to find an accessible spot to put it. When it's not so freaking cold and wet out I'll get at it!!
