I am in reed of a quick fix on a back up camera. Walmart has a wireless for $145 has anyone had any luck on using a Sam,s or Walmart unit. Does the metal siding interfear with the signal?
Thanks

John,

I got a VR3 for a lot less than that at CW a couple of years ago and I've read recently that they are $75 or so on ebay and Amazon now. 

I have both the camera mounted inside the bus at the center of the rear window and it works great. Mounting it inside may be a problem because mine wasn't designed to be 35' away.

John,

I'm using the one from sam's. I mounted the camera up about 8' on the back of the bus. I then drilled a hole and ran the ant inside and mounted it inside the cabinet. It lines up with the moniter at the dash and so far has worked well. The wife waqnts to put one on her car and found one at Sam's on the south side of San Antonio for $68. She going to get her's friday.Will get you one if you want. If you don't like it I'll buy it back from you.

John,

Go to sam's club and search for back-up camera. It's called Safety-View.It has a 7" moniter and is a 12V. system that ties to your back-Lts. The moniter plugs into a cig. lighter. I modified mine so I can turn it on anytime. I cut the camera mounts shorter and used the plastic angle washers to get the angle I wanted. I played with the system at the back of the bus to get my mounting height and sight line. Let me know.

John,

I didn't check to see if it would work mounted at the camera. I picked up 12V. in my cab. (I had run spare wires to the back.) The lts. in the back are 24V. I have a 12v. relay system that hooks to the toad. Do you not pull a car?

Richard,

I will be pulling a trailer, so I will have 12v back there. I also need 12v for my trailer breaks, so I may run a conduit from back to front.

Thanks
