Camera Woes

Hello all
Re: our 2006 Monaco, Camelot PAQ

I read through some prior posts regarding Monaco's Alladin/Camera problems, but found none that detailed cable routing, what to look for "under dash", or elsewhere, so as to check the integrity of circuits, etc.
As seemingly experienced by others, my rear camera works erratically.
I wondered whether it might have to do with the connection at the camera itself, so I removed it and found that the camera had a "short tail" which plugged into a cable running downward, inside the rear cap. I cleaned both ends of that connection; reconnected, and found this didn't resolve the problem; still have "flickering/disappearing" signal on monitor.

Has anyone gone through the whole circuitry from end to end?
If so, would you be so kind as to share your findings? i.e.
1) how/where is the cable routed?
2) what does the cable plug into (Alladin??) within the dashboard, what does this device physically look like, and where is it located? Any pictures?

I recently purchased a Garmin Dezl 760LMT Navigation Unit, which includes a video jack. Might this serve to display the existing camera's output? Has anyone done this already? Need cable adapter? etc.?
Your "step x step" suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
Rudy

The first thing thing I would do is temporarily substitute a known good NTSC camera and see if that eliminates the erratic video. In my experience camera issues are most likely. If you have mirror cameras move the connectors for one of them to the backup connector on the aladdin VCM. On my Panther the VCM is located under top dash access panel near steering wheel.
The Dezl 760 display should be able to be used as a backup camera display. I have not tried it on my RV760 which should be the same. It needs a 3.5mm mini cable to RCA female ( I think) video cable. If nothing else you can use it to eliminate the Aladdin display as the problem. I doubt it will work automatically when you go into Reverse.

I have same problem - Cable for mine is in the ceiling runninr to the rear- I finally bought a tadi beothers and hooked the power line to the exsisting reear cable power - still had the problem so I disconnected the cable in the front and hooked to a different power soarce - my conclusion was that I was loosing power from the alliddin - I love the tadi wireless - great picture and I can see cars behind me too - wide angle lense .

I was told that the problem with the rear camera comes from a voltage drop in the cable. Monaco replaced my Weldex System with a Voyager system. They ran a new cable from front to back by going through the cable ways in the frame.
