I Can See Clearly Now…

Behind the motorhome that is. Yesterday I completed the installation of the wireless rearview camera system. I’m pleased to say it appears to be working fine and I now can see what’s going on behind the motorhome. Not only willl I be able to monitor my towed Ford Bronco II and on-coming traffic from the rear, when backing into a camping spot I’ll be able to see miscellaneous potential things I might otherwise back into such as trees, picnic tables, BBQ grills, etc.

Instead of rigging it to the reverse light so that it operates when you shift into reverse (per the directions provided), I elected to wire it so it operates as soon as I turn on the ignition and thus operates full-time whenever the engine is running. I haven’t even put it to the test yet, but I feel much better knowing I can see clearly now what’s going on behind the motorhome.

The wireless camera is located at the top rear of the motorhome.

The 7″ color monitor is located on the left dashboard.

The total install time was about six hours. I like to work slowly but surely and hopefully not make any mistakes. I finished up at 11:45 AM with the temperature at 85 degrees. It got to 93 during the afternoon. The forecast for today is 95…about 20 degrees to warm for my liking!
