Rear Camera Wiring Keystone Raptor 365LEV Toy Hauler
 
Hi,
I am hooking up a rear view camera for my 365 LEV Raptor Toy Hauler, since I cannot get my Chev 3500 Transparent Trailer camera to work again (it quit after 2 trips out) I am going to mount it above the upper mid marker light strip. There I found a brown wire which I assume is a running light wire. I need a ground, but the only other wire there is a white wire with a red stripe. Does anyone have any idea if that is a ground. If not, where did you pick up your ground, and where and how did you run it?



Thank you.

Not sure about your trailer wiring, but I am running 2 cameras on the rear of my trailer...after talking with a Furrion tech, I ran a fused power cable (hot and ground) all the way to the cameras from batteries....Furrion advised newer cameras require more power than can be obtained from running light circuits, this was based on voltage drops, size of conductors, and length of run, other devices creating loads on same circuit.

Thank you. I will have to check that out.

I have run cameras on lighting circuits. Maybe it can be a problem.... dunno. I think Furrion is just covering the bases indiscriminately here.

My trailer came with "camera prep" and that does run all the way to the battery. With an empty fuse holder. Which no one tells you about.

As far as color.... NEVER trust the color. Verify with a multi meter.
