Rear camera image goes darker when engine started

We have a 2013 Thor Siesta 24 MH, Sprinter chassis. The rear view camera has a bright clear picture until the engine is started and then the picture image goes much darker to the point where its very hard to see the image?

Wow! Your exhaust must be really smoky!

The only thing I can think of is that the engine alternator 12v is making a difference vs battery 12v when the engine is not running. Can't imagine why, though.

I retired in 2009. The only thing I can think of, is there a wire that is connected to the lights that dims the display at night. Maybe they ran the wire from an ignition source and it dims the display when the switch is turned on rather than when the lights are turned on. Turn on the key and don't start the engine and see if the display dims.
