XITE XSG3NA-MB9 backup camera issues

My issue with the XITE XSG3NA-MB9 has been with the HD backup camera not being reliable. Original owner had the RV in for repair for this issue twice and I had it repaired once, but the problem persists. CW charged WGO to replaced the display, core unit, video cable and camera but it's still flaky. In my investigation, I've determined that the CW techs, never replaced the video cable or camera because they couldn't get the originals out. The cable takes too many twists and turns through the chassis to be able to remove it and install a new one. BTW the OEM camera is proprietary so you can't just swap it out with an off brand and to replace it will cost you $ 225.

My plan now is to buy an analog camera to replace the original one and connect it to a wireless video transmitter. The video receiver will present the new video signal to the core unit analog camera input. At least this way I'll get a backup camera again and still preserve all of the other radio functions.

Why not run the cable across the roof? No one will see it, and there are already cable runs up there for the solar panels. It will blend right in.

After a little work and multiple emails to Xite/Riverpark, the wireless backup system works. There are two main connectors behind the XSG3NA core unit that create the wiring rats nest. The connectors segregate the functions for power and AV. All of the AV wires are labeled while the wires to the power connector are not. My initial problem was that I could read and found an RCA connector labeled "Video In" and assumed that was what I needed. Since it didn't work, it became obvious that it wasn't. It turns out that WGO specified that all of the AV connections for this core unit are disabled. Why? Only the gods at WGO know.

In the power connector bundle, there are connections for some other uses, one of which is analog video. The tech at Riverpark told me that was the input that I needed. After pulling everything apart again and tracing the wires, I found another RCA connector stuffed behind a dash frame member. When I plugged my wireless video feed in there, everything worked. The video is good and I can turn it on at will or it will come on when the transmission is shifted into reverse, so no need for an additional monitor.

Sometimes you just have to be persistent and the techs can be helpful. My thanks to Josh at Riverpark for putting up with me through this project.
