Switching rear camera and monitor without changing cable


Recommended Posts

I have a 02 Diplomat with the original Jensen b/w rear camera.  I want to update to colored but use the same cables.  #1 has anybody done that?  Were the wiring similar?  Did you need a professional electrocution?  Are some newer colored units better than others?  My camera pin has 6 pins and power connection has 3.  Ken Parsons 02 Monaco Diplomat pbdd

Electrocution?  No , the wires do not carry enough voltage to get electrocuted?

Rvcams has an adapter that splices onto existing camera cable. They are very helpful, I used there expertise to install side view cams with a controller all wired to turn signal triggers etc. Made a big difference in visibility. Not cheap but nothing is these days.

You can reuse the existing wiring, I did.  Just match the colors on each end.  No problem.  I soldered my connectors to the old wire, but there are some kits out there for adaptors so you don't have to solder.
