I like what you did with the cameras. It certainly protects them from the elements.

I have them ounted outside on each side aimed back along the sides - sideview cameras. They let me see someone coming up the right side (in particular). If someone enters a freeway along side of the motorhome, I can see them easily before changing lanes to the right.

A couple questions for pace89.

1/ What brand, type, etc., of camera's did you use?

2/ Can all GPS's be used for the screen, how, etc.? I have a Garmen 660.

I'm not too electronic savey but I can learn. Looks like an interesting project.

Info please......

David

Hi Daysu47. Camera is from "Harbor Freight" link below shows one similar to the one I used. It has a lot of cable so there should be no issue with cable length. - Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices. Requires 115V to operate. I have a power strip plugged in to the 300 watt inverter that easily powers 32" LCD/DVD-VCR/Camera. I do not think all Gps devices have an A/V in port. The one that I am using is a fairly new model "Magellan" Roadmate 1700 with 7" display screen. Good Luck.

Hi W8rlm. I originally wanted to mount the camera outside but could not decide on a location. Do you have any photos of your installation/setup?

pace89, ya got me started.......

Went to Fry's Electronic's Saturday, checked out their security cameras, etc., and they it was. The wife says, why do you need that?? I said, "cuz"!

It was a security camera kit with 2 cameras AND a 6" B&W monitor all for $70.00!!!

I was jazzed!

Had to make special ABS brackets but mounted easily to the window frame. I get the same views you referenced in your message. Monitor works great even came with audio, but really didn't need that. Even got a 150w inverter, $24.00, and mounted it so I could switch it on or off from the drivers seat instead of using the built in 2000w.

THANKS!! Now, I need another project...............

David

I have the same question. Our monitor has an additional port to add another signal input, I just do not know where adapters are available at to make the connections. Can anyone suggest a source?
