Rear Camera on 2021 DRV - 44 Houston

Planning on installing a “wired” (not wireless) rear camera on DRV. Problem: routing cable down rear cap. Have watched several utubes on construction but thought someone on the forum may have tackled this problem previously.

Any assistance would be appreciated!

We have added a wired camera on rear of a couple trailers. We used rca to coax adapters for signal. Coax was available and stands up pretty good outside. Mounted a coax connection at back bumped and used a pushon connector on trailer end. zip tied to the main wiring 7 pin. Tapped into running lights for power.
Ran the power right from the main junction at front of trailer. Didn't want to disturb factory wiring at rear of trailer. Our trailers had rear windows so I mounted the camera below window and hide the wiring in a white wire cover straight up the middle.
Worked great!

Thanks for the input. Also have a rear window and may do the same with the external wire in conduit.

Is there no owners forum for DRV owners? Or is DRV a subsidiary under some other? NathanJ 5th Wheel Discussion 1 10-03-2013 06:32 PM
