Looking at up grading rear camera and adding side cameras as well

I don't know the answer to your question, but these guys may be able to help you: https://www.rvcams.com

I was thinking about contacting them as I was looking at purchasing cameras from them as they have a good following on this site

RV cams talked me through re-connecting the new color RV cam through the original 1996 wiring. I don't recall any of the colors matching up so it was really handy to talk with them. I did not want to snake another cable from the back to the front.

That's what I would like to avoid as well

Greg,
What cable/wires do you have near the camera? There are likely two sets of them: a coaxial and 12v ignition controlled. On the front behind the head unit, you'd need to map the coaxial as two wires to the input port. I did mine years ago.

I replaced part of my Weldex system, got my new monitor and adapters from www.123securityproducts.com

If I can find the pin out of the connector I reckon I could cut the camera end off and reuse it with new camera when or if we place a new one in

I see it now... I cut the end off on the camera so I was able to install a new camera which doesn't have this plug/socket. On the back of Alpine head unit there's a rectangular socket with 10 or 12 pins. The wires from rear are spliced into the plug; a pretty simple setup.

I purchased 4 camera setup on Amazon and just put new cameras in using existing wiring.

Just cut plug at both ends and solder in new plug ends. There is only 4 wires in camera cable.

gnvrvin 09-10-2021 09:40 AM

Larry got it. If I cut the ends off.I can designate which pins ars.power and which are.for.video
Slowly I start to.see:)

But if anyone knows the connector type I'd like to know as well

Appreciate all the assistance

Greg,
It will be the 2 ends on the new camera. The cable that’s in the Coach had only 4 wires in the jacket. 12volts+. 12volts- Plus two video wires. All you have to do is keep plug ends the same color of wire as the one installed in motor home. For instance when you cut the cable on the camera end and the monitor end use the same color of wire to the same color of wire in motor home. If there is a red wire in all three places then just make red to red to red. This is about as clear as mud, you can call me if you need too.
