Back up camera problem - Winnebago

Hello,

OK - new owners (yesterday) of a Minni Winnie 31KP. The backup camea and side camera are activated by turn signs or putting the MH in reverse or manual selection of rear camera.

All stopped working and it was getting late and I needed to be home (200 miles from dealer) so we stayed awhile and they located the issue but not sure it is completely resolved so we will probably take it to a closer dealer.

HOWEVER, just in case someone has had this issue you might be able to share your experience and solution. Under the steering wheel is a plastic cover and when that was unsnapped the cameras worked and snapped they did not. The dealer tech staying late and found a small wire that seemed to be the problem. Looks like and antenna to me to receive signals from the cameras. He*thought* the pannel going back on was causing the wire to bind and he found what he thought was a connector might have been pulling loose when he snapped the plastic piece back on. He rerouted that wire and it definitely helped. On the 200 mile trip home the cameras mostly worked - went out a couple of times on a bump and then back good. Currently still working this morning.

Again, any experience and thoughts greatly appreciated.

On a real positive note I think we will enjoy the MH very much.

I believe the cameras on that rig are hard wired. I would check the connectors on the back of the monitor, make sure they are plugged in all the way and that the locking collars are tight.

We had a similar problem soon after we got our Vista 30T. When I hit the right TS all I got was a blue screen. In the Vista there is a round cover over the dash and about 8 screws holding it down. I removed the screws and within about 3 minutes found a loose connection for the RT side. Tightened it and no problems since then.

If you can get to the wiring it's all very clearly marked and fairly simple to just poke around looking for loose connections.

Thanks - I believe you are correct. If it keeps acting up I will look for it myself. If other bugs arise I will take it in probably.
Thanks again.
