Affordable Cam's

Didn't anybody check Harbor Freight?
Color Cam:
Weatherproof Color Security Camera with Night Vision

B/W Cam:
Weatherproof Security Camera with Night Vision

They both have audio and are wired with a very simple telephone style wire.

I have 2 of these on the sticks and bricks (er' studs and stucco?), and they work great - even at night in the IR mode
And they go on sale all the time for CHEEEEP

Yeah, it is a "Just because I can" project, but it's smaller than the HF ones and we don't know what voltage the wall warts puts out.

As I said, with practice, I could probably figure out how to line up with a pump and use it for a rear view camera for the back of my 20' enclosed.

Dunner ruined my scenery idea, my wife reads this stuff.

I think I'll stick to my "look for identifying marks on the ground or by the pump as you roll by then look for the marks in your rear camera" routine. The idea is to stop then.

Besides I need the twelve bucks for a haircut.

Barb, fear not, any "scenery" seen by this 170 camera would be extremely distorted.

Norm, put a #2 protector on some `lectric trimmers and do your own haircut.

Yes, When I drove a straight truck the gas cap was about 3 feet back from the front seat

When I drove a car perhaps 15 feet and easily seen if you turned your head

But in the motor home it's like 25 feet and a solid wall beside it, So it is very hard to guess the distance, and what's mroe that's the "Objects may be closer" mirror.

But with the camera I put in.. If it's in the center of the monitor, It's where I want to be. ZERO error.

That's why I do everything I can to make my life simpler.

Made a plug and have the leads identified. Just waiting for the camera and cables.

BTW, I called Tim at rvcams.com to see if he knew off the top of his head what the pin-out is for my monitor. Granted, he's in business to make money, but he didn't want to talk to me unless I was buying something from him. He was actually rude and told me I didn't know what I was doing because I hadn't yet tested for ground using my ohm meter.

Well, what can I say,, ,I tested, and identified my leads that way.. Easy to do, no danger to either me or the monitor so long as I do not short leads together and then only a fuse.

I'm very happy with my install.

I did find it interesting that when I hooked a transistor radio output to the video and audio input leads to the monitor, sound came out of the monitor speaker. My yellow lead briefly touched to the 12V lead caused the monitor to flicker and my green lead touched to 12V caused the speaker to crackle.

12 volts was there no matter what camera was selected on the monitor.

If anyone is considering adding a camera, this is the pin-out for my AOM-78 monitor. The connector is proprietary. I made my own, but you can buy one from Tim @ RVCams.com.
Verify your connections before using them. The ground is ~.3-3 ohms.

Pay the postage and they are yours. Video has a BNC on it, but Radio Shack sells an adapter plug to convert BNC to RCA. PM me your address and I will drop 2 of them in the mail (if it fits, it ships).

I want to extend my thanks to Chuck(cnkinthebus) for sending me more that enough cable to install my "Gas Pump Camera". I only had to change one connector to make it match the camera from Ebay.

Glad it is going to work out. I have 2 more rolls of that cable if you hear of anyone else that could use it. Trying to reduce the amount of (as DW calls it) stuff I have laying around. It is still going to take a dumpster or 2 if and when we sell the S & B and go FT.

I got the cable run today. Pulled the doghouse and zip tied it to some existing cables and zip tied it next to the fuel lines. I cut ~60' off and will be putting the connectors back on tomorrow morning. Got too hot today. I didn't want to coil up 60' under my MH, but I did leave about 3' up front and 10' near the back. Still waiting for the camera. I have extra without the connectors also, if anybody needs some. One of the paired cables is a single shielded wire and the other is the red and black power leads. They're handy to have around for adding accessories or lights. Hope it works.

BTW, the cable is lightly waxed and so easy to pull.
