I ordered and received the new monitor. I went to install it and there isn't a signal coming into the left and right signal wires and also noticed the signal wire for the rear camera was disconnected
and I can't find where it's supposed to go.
Bob: How did you connect a separate monitor for the right side? That may be something I would consider??
When you say there is no connection for the signal wires do you mean in the dash wiring harness or on the new monitor that RV Cameras sent you? The new monitor may be a later version from your OEM Weldex monitor and require an adapter cable. If the trigger wires are in the dash harness but not present on the new monitor, give them a call back and explain that to them.
My Weldex system was intermittent and we did not have any success with finding the cause. I finally got tired of fooling with it and purchased the Voyager system to replace the monitor and add a second rear camera. I had to make adapters to connect the two Weldex side cameras and the intermittent Weldex rear camera. The old Weldex monitor was removed from the dash and the hole covered with a tablet computer used for the Silverleaf system. The Voyager has four camera inputs and for awhile I used the single monitor and would manually switch to the other cameras or setup the multiple views options on the Voyager. The old Weldex rear camera was aimed down at the hitch and I use a switch connected to the trigger input to select that camera when I desire to see what is happening with the towbar. By the way, the Weldex rear camera is still intermittent so the problem is most likely the cable. I fussed with the connectors many times without success. Eventually I added a second Voyager monitor to allow full time viewing of the blindspot near the door. The new Voyager rear camera is great and has a wide field of view. I can see what is approaching the toad from either side and it is clear when I can safely change lanes.
