Rear View Camera??

Not sure exactly where to post this but I read on a forum, within the last few months, where someone had posted that they had installed a wireless rear view camera, on the inside of their trailer or fifth wheel. I can't find the thread anywhere so I hope I wasn't hallucinating but my recollection is that this individual used the existing wiring that comes with the trailer (Forest River, pre-wired for back up camera) but mounted the camera on the inside of the unit looking out the rear window. From what I recall the installation was quite easy but I would really like some of the particulars - I believe they even posted pics.

Does anyone know of this, or someone who may have installed one like this? I am getting frustrated knowing that I should have saved it back when I first saw it - but I didn't.

Thanks gang.

Rear view camera

I have a rear view camera in the Ford, Wife wants one in her car. I was at PEP BOYS and they have wireless remote cameras. Maybe her next Bday or something. Check them out. If they have them, then any auto store should have them.

I just put in a two camera wired system but during my studies learned a few things. A wireless camera still needs a full time 12v power supply. It can't be real far from the monitor. That can vary a lot. And being on the inside of a window can cause the IR lights to glare at night. Hope this helps.
