New Aire Cameras install

Has anybody installed some factory replacement caress on your New Aire?
I have some bad ones and will need to replace them and would like to know how to do it?
Tried searching but keep coming up empty.
2018 3343 New Aire
Thanks.

I have ordered new original replacements for my bad front and rear camera.
Was looking for someone who has done this and can give me some pointers on removing the originals. Thanks

Sooty about that. I was reading the body of the message and couldn’t figure out “caress”. I should have read the title more closely.

I’ve had 3 cameras replaced on our NA. Luckily, they were under warranty. National Indoor RV ordered the cameras from Newmar. Depending which camera location, some are easy to remove. A little silicon and on small screw.

I haven’t seen anyone detailing a third party camera replacement option.

Timekeeper, Iíve replaced both from and rear cameras on the New Aire. First you need to remove the caulking around the camera carefully to not scratch the paint on the camera cover. There is a very tiny screw at the top that holds the plastic cover on the camera. Two screws on the metal bracket hold it to the front or rear cap.

Rear was pretty easy because wires were accessible above the rear engine door on our coach, but early models like TurboPilotís were higher and wires were only accessible through the closet. I believe he had to access behind the KIB unit. Turbopilot had a post on replacing his. Front camera wires were stuck in the insulation in the front cap. With the exception of getting that small screw back in, that was the hardest part to not cut the wires while cutting around the foam insulation. Once the wire would move and the hole was cleaned out enough, the fakra connector came out through the hole in the cap and camera could be swapped.

Holes in the camera mount were a little tight for the screws but small drill can make them fit. Test the new camera before attaching it to the cap. Use the original cover instead of the flat black cover that comes with the replacement camera. Press the cap onto the camera from the bottom lens up to the top to line up the hole. Putting the small screw back in can be a challenge, especially standing on a ladder to reach the top of the cap. Apply clear caulk onto the top and sides of the camera cover.
