Yes, I got rid of the Sony CRT and got a Voyager LCD Color monitor with 4 inputs.

Can you PM me the model information?

Bought one of these trailer cables today to connect the two trailer cameras. Not the same connector as the Voyager cameras take, but I'll find a way of adapting them, this setup is about $200 cheaper than the others I've found - TWO CAMERA REAR VIEW TRAILER CABLE CONNECTOR RECEPTACLE SET BACKUP VIDEO KIT 2 | eBay

I believe all of the wires and cables: ie-coax for tv-rear camera are run in the upper roof rail, where the roof radius is, front to back -at least I know mine is.
Are putting a camera in the trailer for viewing while driving ?

You're correct, that's where the factory one is at. And it's taped with several other wires in there, no joy on just using it to pull new wires through.

Yes, gonna put one inside trailer and at the rear of trailer.

Just read of another trailer fire this evening, they think golf cart battery tipped over and started it. That happens all too often, makes me nervous. I've checked my hold down for the cart and seems good but I'm considering pulling it while traveling or making better mount. Lot of stuff back there to worry about.

This happened to one of the racers in the series that I race in. We passed it on the way home from the race in Gateway last year. The engine survived, nothing else did. I have racers insurance. Everything is covered until I turn the key to fire up the dragster at the track.

He was able to separate the Motor Home from the trailer to save it.

I've seen and heard of the Fire issues before. I too have Full content coverage of everything in My Trailer. Golf Cars seen to be the majority cause.

This weekend before we left I checked the battery in my Golf Cart, if you pulled it straight up, the hold down seemed good and tight, but if you moved the battery from the top inward, it came loose. Great... I pulled it out and put it in plastic tote before we left. Better safe than sorry.

Sounds like yet another project. Nice strong plastic battery box.

My Club Car has a V shape hold down which wraps over 2 corners .
My Battery does not move , at all . It's been down the road over 150,000 miles or so - well tied down with the front end up on my front cabinets - never moves an inch .

Interesting, sounds like someone modified the mount at some point. I haven't had a chance to look at how to change mine yet.

I bought this Club Car 1 yr old in 97 from an older Gentleman that used it running around His home.
Notice the tie down and secured Airbox above- also tied down, and everything is fused.

That looks pretty good, my Club Car's air box doesn't go over the battery. At least on yours even if the hold down comes loose, it has to push the air box out of the way. Good deal, yours looks pretty safe.

Thanks for sharing the pics..

One of the two trailer cams mounted, about 1/2 way done running the cable for this one.
