Technically not legal to have it on when driving forward but I just consider it another mirror to view a blind spot. The Tadi display is not large so it does not distract me.

I suspect that the majority of coach owner's pulling a toad have a backup camera system that is on whenever they are driving the coach.
(I doubt that that's illegal anywhere).

Mine is always on when driving, I can watch the towed and tow bar for anything unusual, and I don't have to wonder if I'm allowing enough clearance to change lanes in heavy traffic.
I have a wireless system so I converted the old camera coax to a pos and neutral wire-set. Center was pos, braided shield was neutral; works great.

No.
Methinks whether specs are followed or ignored is the responsibility of each individual owner .

Sorry Mel. I obviously confused you with someone else. I go to quite a few forums and get mixed up sometimes.
