If I were you, I'd try to find out if the display is shot or the camera in back. If just the display, I'd replace only that and not the camera too. Check first to be sure the connections from the old camera wire are compatible with the new display. I'm just thinking it might be a lot less grief if you don't have to replace any of the wires going through the back of the coach. Just my 2cents.

How old is your Voyager?

I also have the 7" Voyager which is around 2 years old and performing fine.

Mine is in a 09 Astoria and the monitor works sometimes and then it kicks off and have to turn it off for a couple of hours then it works for a little bit then it's off again, now it won't work at all.

Wireless backup cameras

I would love to hear some good reports on wireless backup cameras, but I never have. Every knowledgeable-sounding source I contacted said essentially, "sometimes they work, most times they don't". One source said, "When a decent quality, totally dependable wireless backup camera comes on the market, I'll be the first to sell them. All I've seen so far is products that will just eventually give me unsatisfied customers."

I have no PERSONAL experience with wireless backup cameras. But I am about to replace a WIRED defective one that is nearly 20 years old. Tadi Brothers is an advertiser on this forum. They have quite a selection.

took a good look at the rear cap and I have a lot of working room to run the wiring drop from the camera, adequate room in the wiring runs to the cab. So will go for a replacement of the whole system. Now its time to select the system

is a good source of systems and parts and they are very helpful. I have replaced a B/W system for a color and running the new wire was a pain...
(about a whole day's work). I would never even touch wireless. Just my opinion..

Thanks I will take a look at thier site. running the wire will be a lot of time on my back in the storage bays and under the chassis.

I would avoid the Voyager brand. When I got my new coach, it took 3 or 4 monitor replacements to get one that worked properly. If you're doing it yourself, you would be better off getting one that worked the first time.

Good luck.

Rest assured that Voyager and Welldex brands are not on the list at all. Found a couple of places on ebay that have some good deals. system with 7 in TFT-LCD color and rear camera for $250. one with side cams for $440. It will be an all day project running the wire and camera but well worth it.

I got my camera for my 5er. A 3 camera system (2 side) $400. It is color and IR, works nice at night. Have not had good luck with the audio but the camera is 12' up. They also have trailer connectors.
