I have a ‘98 HR Imperial and I replaced the rear camera (plus added sides and forward) when I did it.
Yes - the rear camera was indeed mounted with a “dicor type” product.
Wiring was accessible from inside - as I’m pretty sure most coaches (should) be.
The camera itself should be accessible behind something that is removable from the outside. On mine, you have to remove a rather large (apx 2’ x 3’) panel that includes the “see through” plexiglass. Then, there’s another panel within that cavity/space that houses the camera itself, which is (as mentioned) secured with a rather stubborn sealant.
My cable from front to back was a beast - 8 twisted pars and 4 double shielded pairs!
If I were to do it again, I would add some sort of condensate compensation (fan or heater) to that aforementioned cavity...utilizing some of that spare wiring!
