I replaced the old radio in our 2006 American Eagle with a Kenwood unit I purchased from Crutchfield online. I contacted there tech support and they spent time on the phone with me to find the exact pigtail connector I needed to plug the new radio with apple car play into the connector in the motorhome.

They figured out that the original radio in my rig was from a 1999-2008 Ford. The old radio came right out and the new went right in. Easier than I thought it would be. I highly recommend Crutchfield to others as they have the best support in the business.

EDIT: I just reread your post and did not originally catch that your radio is also your camera system. Mine has a separate screen for the camera's so it was just a radio swap. I would still contact Crutchfield as they have a lot of experience with radios and camera systems.

I agree with talking to Crutchfield, here is a link: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-yJJ6ETgpnJ5/


The world of aftermarket radios changes quickly and can be confusing, they help to make it simple.

My history with reset buttons is that they work well -- until they don't. Keep Crutchfield in mind when that button says you have done this enough times

A lot of times all it takes is to completely remove power to the radio. That includes the power used for the memory. Pull the plugs on the rear of the radio and let it sit for a while. Or disconnect the battery. Engine and house batteries. With all the electronic features in the new radios, strange things can happen and the lock up.

If you still decide to change it, I'm very happy with my Kenwood and they make models that should work with your cameras.
