Supercircuits is great for this stuff. To make a connector if you can't find the mate - you take pins that will fit your wire and the sockets on the connector you are trying to mate to, and push them through a layer of tape placed over the connector. You make a "cup" out of some other kind of tape (aluminum tape works good) around the pins and pour epoxy into the cup that's formed , which will make a serviceable connector. Don't use JB weld, it's conductive.

I made one kinda that way years ago for a GPS. Garmin wanted $25 for a DC cable and I made one for $0.0.

Got the camera yesterday when it was to hot in the MH to install it.
Had an 8am dental appointment today and got right on it when I got home.

It works.

This camera it tinier than it looks on Ebay. It's only 7/8" square. A quarter almost covers it up. I mounted it to the support brace, just below the hitch stinger, with automotive emblem tape after cleaning everything with alcohol. I think it will do what I want.

The wiring to the monitor was a mobo-jumbo bunch of taped up wire, so I shortened it by about a foot and stuffed it up under the dash.

Thanks again cnkinthebus, the cable worked perfectly.

GREAT, Now I have another mod to do. Just built a clothes hamper to fit between the shower and the cabinet. Useless space generally but now it has a function. With a fourth input to my camera monitor it has room to watch for fuel pumps. Oh heck, now I need two cameras and a switch. Just remembered I can fuel from either side.

That was not my problem. My fill is on the far left.

I don't watch TV in the bedroom. Duh! So I took the 20" RCA out, which left a hole ~21X21"s. I thought about hanging a cabinet door, but it is just a wall on the far side and the wardrobe on the other. I guess I could mount a strip, on the far side, but I don't know what I have to anchor too and I don't want a door hanging by thin wallboard. I don't need the space, but could keep my laundry bag there. Maybe I'll just thumbtack a pillow case across the top.

Hey Dunner, the price of your camera went up a bit. They are now $911.75 each. They must be really special. Click on your link above.

Yeah, I saw that. Somebody has to pay for the free shipping.

My current MH (Freightliner chassis) has fill locations on both sides up close to the front about the same distance back as a standard car. Real easy to align at the pump. However my last MH was a real PITA and I needed my DW to help me or do some hit or miss alignment.

I've only filled up 3 times, but it was enough to convince me something could be done.

If anybody else does this, you do not need a 170 camera like I got. 120 or less would be wide angle enough.

There's a camera there someplace.



The ladder bars came with the camera. Haven't measured each line, but it is 6' to the base
of the wall from the camera lens. It's also reversed, but that's what backup cameras do.
All I want, is to see a pump on my monitor.

Hmmm. How about some laser pointers that can be turned on remotely??

the $911 jump was Dunners consulting fee for the wiring...

Looks good.
