Default Back Up Camera

How do you access the back up camera? I may have to replace it.

Back closet, above the bed, should be a panel, possibly held there by a couple of screws. Camera is behind that.

I thought mine needed to be replaced. Removed the camera, cleaned its lens and the inside and outside of the lexan view port. It is still black and white, but much clearer now.

Rick broke his arm yesterday so I don't know what that is going to do to production. I was supposed to be in there today to get a few wrinkles ironed out.

Alan, Bill is correct, but on my unit the panel is inside the cabinets just over the rear bed. Panel is held on by Velcro. Removing panel reveals back up camera. On my LX, camera is black and white. I have been looking at replacing it with a color camera, but those all use RCA plugs; black and white camera does not. Might need to run new cable when switching to color.

Mike,
I know there is one vendor that sells adapters for each end of our cables that will convert to RCA so you don't have to run new cable. I don't know if this will handle the audio feed, but I don't believe you would be able to hear anything except a big diesel motor running anyway.

I "saved" this information for future reference but darned if I can find it right now. Sorry. I'll look some more. I know he is in south Louisiana somewhere. Very knowledgeable and very helpful and very gracious when I told him I had cleaned my lenses and wouldn't be buying anything from him at that time.

You may want to disable night vision LEDs - if you have that function - and camera is mounted inside behind glass. Search for posts here on forum. Plenty of info

With a Voyager unit, I removed the outside fiberglass housing from the bus, took out my glass, and built a plastic "box" (using an cutting board material) behind the camera to mount to, and reinstalled; which let the camera and the bracket stick out slightly to enable the LEDs, microphone, and angle adjustments to be outside. Then caulked it all back up.
