Title: Backup Camera & Monitor
Post by: Bill DeGroot on November 04, 2006, 07:50:02 AM
Prior to finishing my interior, I ran RG-6 coax and 12v power between the planned-for camera location and the monitor location, with the idea of using RCA adaptors on each end of the coax to transmit the video from the camera to the monitor. I've been trying to find inexpensive cameras and monitors that would work with this wiring. I've looked at the Jensen RCS50A, which looks like a neat little package, but it appears to need additional wiring/connections. I would appreciate any help you could provide.

As with any of the audio visual equipment, it is always best to use their cables-will keep the resistance to a minimum.  I ran my cable after my bus was finished, but anticipated additions, since all my electrical runs down the lower exterior of the left interior wall.  It is always best to build with the possibilities of adding more toys in the future.  Good Luck, TomC

You can find cameras on eBay for around $100 bucks, color even. They say it can be hooked to any monitor. Go to eBay Motors, click on other vehicle parts.
