Default M380 rear camera

On my 07 M380, I have a switch that is marked rear view camera "A" and camera "B". I get the same camera angle on both positions and wonder if anyone has looked into this to see if there is wiring somewhere for 2 rear camera's?
I would like a camera view that looked down at my hitch for hooking up to my trailer. I don't mind installing a second camera just don't really want to run new wire from the front to the back of the coach

I mounted a very small backup camera on my 380. Drilled about a one inch hole and popped it in the rear valance aimed directly at the ball on the hitch. Did have to run the wire and hooked it to the 'B' on the rocker switch.Works great. Takes all of the 'fun' out of getting your wife to help with the trailer.

I think Stephen nailed it with the second position on the switch. Someone told me that the M450's have side cameras and use that second position? While the M380 shares the same switch on the dash, but not the side camera option.

That LXi I drove (1999) had an "A" and "B" input selection. A was the rear camera and B was the curbside camera. That way you could see the eyes of the four wheeler as you cut them off (I kid, I kid).

Garry, did you find wiring for camera B at the site of camera A at the rear of the coach or did you have to go right to the switch at the dash?

Jim, Mine was not prewired for another camera, so I had to go from the switch all the way back. Not terrible, but a bit of a chore.

In the factory wiring of a camera choice toggle (also on my M450) allowed a choice of either the color rearview or an infrared B&W rearview camera. Both were mounted in the rear, along side each other. The side cameras operated with the signal lights. On the M450 there was an additional momentary push button switch that, when pressed, cycled through the four color cameras; front, right, rear, left.
This is how the ones I saw/used operated from the factory. Keep in mind though, Blue Bird's motto "Make no two the same" !!!
