Use Trailhawk Camera while toad?

About to setup the Cherokee Trailhawk as our Toad. Thinking it would be great to be able to use the Trailhawk's built in backup camera while changing lanes and overall monitoring. Is this possible?

If not I suppose I could hack something with cell phone cameras and a local lan using below mini router.

No way I know of tapping into the Jeep. I just use the rear view camera in my coach and can see all I want to my rear, including the Jeep and the tailgaters following me.

That was my hope to use the Tiffin camera but it barely sees a few feet behind me. Perhaps a way to tweak the angle & field of view?

You can probaly tilt the camera up a bit.

That is what I suggest you do. In my previous Dutchstar I could barely see over the top of our Honda CRV. Any one more than 10' behind it was invisible to the camera. This Dutchstar gives me a GREATLY improved view behind our Jeep. I should have investigated re-aiming the previous RV's camera.
