rear view camera suggestions

I want to add a rearview camera to watch the toad, I want wireless to avid the need to run wire 40ft to the back.
I am looking for recommendations for a reasonable priced wireless system from those who have installed one.

We prefer the camera systems from Rear View Safety.

toolster-

According to both the brochure and owner's manual for your coach, it came with a rear-view system with either one or three cameras and a display in the dash. It looks as if the manufacturer was Weldex.

This means there's already a wire between front and rear of your coach- assuming no one has ripped it out.

You may want to call Tim at RVCams (link here) and discuss upgrade options with him. I found him very helpful when discussing changes to our coach's rear-view system.

Wireless cameras frequently have more problems with reliable service than wired cameras.

Rear View Safety. Used the existing wire run and spliced on new connectors. Camera fits in the existing opening in the back cap and looks factory. Replaced the 5" B&W Sony monitor with a color 7". Works great.

I bought the RVS-770613 too for my '05 Monaco Knight. It's got the Weldex now with 4-pin connectors. Where did you get the 5-pin connectors to splice on, and did you leave one of the pins empty?

I endorse this recommendation.
