Camera Upgrade

Hello everyone, I wanted to post a few upgrades I just finished that worked out well. I have a 2016 Itasca Solei that came with both side cameras and a backup camera. The problem was that the cameras were poor quality, especially at night, and the monitor used the 6 inch head unit built into the dash. This is a rather small screen considering it is 3 feet from the driver.

To solve the issues i purchased 2 of the "TTP-C12B Hidden Mini Backup Camera - 170° Viewing Angle" for $20.00 a piece, the "CoolWoo Backup Camera Wired for Semi Truck, Van, RV, Bus, Waterproof, Wide Angle High Definition" for $50.00, and the "Lancevon- 10.1 inch Small Portable Computer HDMI VGA HD LCD Monitor display screen" for $60.00. The backup camera was an easy install since both old camera and new camera used the same 4-pin connector. The side view cameras required complete disassembly of the mirrors and I used butt connectors and electrical tape to slice the power and video in.

The end product is awesome. I have better viewing angles, video quality, and an increased confidence while traveling. Let me know if you have any questions.

2nd that - Jones. I have nearly identical mirrors on a recently acquired 2002 Winnebago Sightseer 27 ...are your mirror cameras 'add-ons'? I have a single, 7" B/W CRT rear cam. I purchased a replacement for it, but your setup looks very attractive. Thanks.

Jim
