  1. Here’s what I found on the GM part number for the dual camera port. #13526856 This site might be of interest to you: https://sdparts.com/i-24504712-genuine-gm-parts-13526856-receptacle-asm-tow-veh-elec.html
  2. Great job, you’re going to love it. I agree that the image is crystal clear. I like the idea of going through the hole already there from the Furrion camera.
  3. Following, I also would like to lock my DEF Cap. Looks like I might resort to a locking fuel door.
  4. Nicely done. I’m sure that camera will workout great for your needs ShogunKC. I'm in the process of rerunning my cabling as we speak on my 5th wheel.
  5. Yes you can, I would just experiment the height you chose to make sure you get the image you want. Someone mentioned that they had a fisheye effect on their image and lowered the camera a little until they lost that effect. I mounted mine high and my image was great. I’ll also add that I’m rerunning the way I ran the cable to the bumper plug after I pulled the coax line out of the plug. I thought I allowed enough cable for tight turns on my fifth wheel but didn’t.
  6. Very glad everything worked out perfectly for you Ed. I would have over mine but I also have a bumper pull trailer so I just kept the stock position for the camera plug. Bill
  7. Just to update, I did look again at the post with pictures of the inside of the camera that was provided by Chuck showing the connector. It was simple the coax wire harness just plugs into the rear of the camera. I just unplugged it and used that end and routed it through my trailer. It sure made things easier because of its size. Everything worked perfect, I love having the camera on the rear of my 5th wheel.
  8. Here are a few pictures of my install. It actually works like it was planned. I measured how much camera coax cable I needed (distance from the trailer to the bumper plug) at the most extreme turning angle of the truck with the trailer. That amount of wire harness was right about 5 ft. I then decided on using that coiled yellow trailer plug/harness and routed the camera cable through the coiled wire. I even plugged that into the bumper to help secure it to the truck. The other end of that coiled wire goes through that round cable holder and its secured to the trailer along with the camera coax cable. You can see that I used a wire tie to keep the camera coax from being pushed out and looping at that location. You can see the loop in the camera cable coax up near the bumper which is exactly where I want that. One of the pictures shows me pulling/stretching the cable like it would stretch as if you were turning sharp. I then let the cable go and it goes back in place with the loop near the tailgate. That yellow trailer harness sole purpose is to keep the 5 ft. of camera cable coax from dragging on the pavement and it works very well. I hope all this makes sense.
  9. I finally got around to installing the camera on the rear of my 5th wheel (30ft.) today. The install went flawlessly and the image on the dash screen is perfect. I would also like to thank everyone that posted information about the installation of the camera, you guys are why this site is so valuable. It sure will be nice being able to have the camera on the rear of the trailer. Life Is Good!
