Replacement backup camera system

I have a 2006 Fleetwood Pace Arrow 37C.
The in-dash original equipment Weldex B/W backup camera system (monitor and camera), only works sporatically at best, with the monitor picture going blank several times during even a short trip and has to be turned back on.

My RV repair guy called me this afternoon, and said, after testing it for loose wiring and unplugging/plugging it back in, it's time to replace the monitor and camera, but the Weldex B/W 5"x5" in-dash monitor and camera have been discontinued.

Recommendations for a replacement (color monitor) system, and best place/price to look for one? The in-dash opening will be a bit bigger than the replacement I was told, but that can be worked around.

I'm not looking for anything really complicated or fancy, just something that is easy to use and provides a clear picture/view on the monitor.

Would appreciate recommendations as soon as possible.

Thanks,

I ended up replacing a Voyager system through RVCams.com. They were able to put together a plug and play color camera and monitor replacement complete with the correct cable ends for us. I was extremely pleased with the service from them.

The culprit with the Weldex is typically the "mirror/normal" slide switch on the back of the monitor. It gets dirty, builds up resistance, and causes intermittent loss of signal. Sometimes flipping it back and forth a couple of times (after you experiment reaching up behind the dash to find it) clears it up for a few months. I finally had to take the monitor out, take the switch apart and clean it with contact cleaner. That fix has kept me outage free for about a year now, and postponed a $400 + investment in a new system.

If you go the replacement route, X2 on RVCams.com. They have a flat screen color replacement that fits (sort of) in the dash opening for the Weldex -you have to trim it out a bit if you are picky about appearance. The folks there are great about suggesting alternatives, and really know their stuff.

Your old CRT monitor will make an excellent door stop.
