side view cameras

Is this normal? when using my side view camera, my monitor reverts back to rear view when i shift to reverse. Seems I could disconect the feed to this function.

I can't tell what Make or Model your Backup Camera is, or what kind of Motorhome you have. So here is some general info on Voyager, perhaps the most common camera system installed.

This is normal at least in the Voyager Systems. Here is a page from one of the owners manuals. The Manual is too big to attach here so here is a link. The backup camera is connected to the backup lights and overrides the other inputs. If you can find it you could connect it to either +12 or Ground so your selections would be completely manual. You'll have to experimant to find out if you need +12 or Ground, reading the voltage while in reverse and again while in any other gear will let you know which is needed.

By disabling the reverse sensor it's possible you won't be able to select the backup camera, if so then your stuck with the present operation.

That is the way mine works, so I assume that is normal.

I think....repeat...think...that if you manually select a camera (by pushing the button until you get the one you want) then it will stay on that one. I can't test that right now.

You are right. I was mistaken in my previous post. I just tested it. Manually selecting a camera view overrides the system. BTW, I have a Voyager camera system.

Yea the three camera triggers are activated by a pulse, so if after activation you manually selact another view then it should remain until another pulse is received. Of course if Trigger 2 & 3 are hoohed up to turn signals and one is on it could get a bit anoying.

My system is a voyager on an 2010 Adv. Shifter in reverse gear will override any other input and activate rear camera. Gotta fix that. Will look at monitor connections when I get the rig back from the dealer[he is tweaking some other warranty problems] They weren't sure how that system works.

I represent ASA Electronics, the producer of the JENSEN brand of televisions, stereos, and speakers and the Voyager brand of observation monitors and cameras. At ASA, we strive to provide excellent customer service and product satisfaction and would like to offer some assistance in this matter.

Our Voyager observation monitors are designed to operate in two modes: automatic and manual. In a typical three-camera system (1-rear, 2-sides), the CAMERA 1 Trigger wire is connected to the back-up lights which engage when the RV is put in Reverse gear. CAMERA 2/3 Trigger wires are connected to the corresponding turn-signal circuits. When any of these trigger wires receive +12V DC from the attached circuit, the monitor will switch to the camera view from that input (i.e. CAMERA 1 will be displayed when the RV is in Reverse). This is the automatic mode of operation.


Manual operation is performed by pressing the SELECT button until the desired camera is shown on the monitor's display. Typical operation would be to manually select the desired camera view when the vehicle is in Drive (and no Triggers active). Once a Trigger is activated by putting vehicle into Reverse gear or using a turn-signal, the monitor switches to automatic mode. When the monitor stops receiving the trigger, the monitor resumes manual operation and will return to last state.

CAMERA 1 Trigger has default priority over other triggers. If you are in Reverse, CAMERA 1 will always be displayed. This is by design as a safety measure to make sure that the driver is looking at the correct camera view when backing up.

If you prefer full manual operation of the system, you would need to have the trigger wires disconnected from the system. You would then be able to select any camera view at any time.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thanks for joining in here!

When the triggers are disconnected is there a need to Ground or Pull up the input lines to avoid false triggers?

Thanks
Dick

The Trigger wires should not be connected to anything when not in use. As these only accept +12V DC from the coach circuits, there is no output voltage on these wires. There is no need to connect these wires to Ground. If you choose to disconnect the Triggers, be sure to tape off the ends of the existing circuit wires coming from the back-up lights/turn-signals.

Not sure why you would want to turn off the rear view from the camera when in reverse, but I wanted to periodically turn off the side cameras when towing so that, coupled with the mirrors, I can see that the toad was clear when changing lanes. I was able to accomplish this by putting switches on the right and left turn signal feed wires going to the monitor. I identified those feeds per the owners manual and installed switches, one for each side, which allowed me to turn them off when desired.

In reply to your desire to turn off the rear camera while in reverse, you could do the same (put a switch in the backup feed) yet keep all functions in tact if ever desired in the future.

Good thinking Jim. The best of both worlds.

I want to turn off the camera in reverse soas to use my side view camera because there is inches between my house and rig when I back the rig into its resting place in my backyard.
