Default Re: VR-3 Wireless Back-Up Camera System

I just purchased at my local BJ's Wholesale Club a VR-3 Wireless Back-Up Camera System which was on the reduced table for $48.

I hooked up my Wireless Back-Up Camera, made 2 brackets for the camera, tilts down at a nice angle, able to view the rear spare tire, and objects behind the RoadTrek. Ran the wiring into the AC cabinet then through the inside cabinets, down to the floor behind the drivers seat, to a power strip I have attached to the front firewall.

The monitor is hot wired, I have an On/Off Toggle switch which controls both the Camera and the Monitor at the same time, I can view the monitor anytime I want either driving or stopped. The switch is seated below the AC-Heater control on the front of the dash board.

Rose is in one of the photo's, the photo's are not the best, but the monitor when viewed in the RoadTrek is clear, photo's taken in my garage with my 5 x 10 Enclosed Haulmark Cargo Trailer in the rear.

I had my GPS, Magellan 4250 on the dash board, but I now have it on the Interior Engine Cover next to the drivers cup holder.

I also installed a Back-Up alarm after I purchased the RoadTrek in December 2001, the alarm is also controlled with an On/Off Toggle Switch.

I have included photo's of the Back-Up Camera, any problems viewing, E-mail me.

there's a bit of non-cluttered space left on the dashboard - ya might want to mount some other gadget there just to fill it in..

Heh, I was going to mention that your dashboard has almost as much "stuff" as ours!
