Word of advise...if you already have one, AND it hasn't been rained on or gone thru a carwash yet - go to HomeDepot or Lowes and buy a small tube of clear silicon. Just squeeze a pea sized bead on your finger and smear it all around the camera's seams - including the screw holes. That should seal the camera from water, then you're golden. I wish I had done that but...as it said it was "water and fog proof"....I didn't and here I am returning this thing.
Hope the above helps anyone planning on buying or who already has one that isn't yet waterlogged! Moral to the story - if you get one, the cam works good, it's cheap, JUST WATERPROOF IT WHEN YOU GET IT (clear silicone will run you $2 only, if that). If you don't want to bother doing that - I'd steer clear from this one or you're going to be looking for another camera soon after a few rainstorms or car washes!
Disgruntled and misled!
After searching all over to try and find info on wiring this camera ( to NO AVAIL - there is NO SUPPORT FROM THE MANUFACTURER ) Here is what I have found - this camera has a a long cord with proprietary plug in the line about three feet out from the camera end so if there is a problem after installing it later on you will NOT have re-wire this all the way from the interior where your display is ( at this plug there is also a red and black power connection I will get to that in a bit ) on the end of the proprietary wire there is a RCA plug to connect to your display with a red wire coming out next to the RCA plug.
This was NOT explained in the instructions.
The RCA plug is self explanatory, it provides the video signal to the display.
The power connections are as follows - you can either connect the red wire by the RCA plug to be your 12v power supply for the camera ( which is what I did because it was way easier to connect this end in the cab to supply power from the reverse switch or as I did connect this wire to a toggle a switch to turn on the camera manually (this way I can use it whenever I want - sometimes when towing I like to be able to see what is on the trailer while stopped at a light to make sure straps or chains are still good and the load has not shifted or to see if anything is wrong back there ).
Now back to the power wires that are back in the line by the plug- if you connect the red wire by the RCA plug YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SUPPLY POWER FROM THIS CONNECTION just connect the black wire to a good ground and you are good to go. If you DID NOT use the red wire in the cab these wires need to be connected to your reverse light to activate the camera when the car is place in reverse, RED to positive reverse signal and black to a good ground.
IF YOU USED THE RED WIRE AT THE RCA END DON'T FORGET TO COVER THE RED WIRE HERE WITH A CAP AND OR TAPE BECAUSE WHEN YOU CONNECTED THE RED WIRE IN THE CAB - YOU SUPPLIED POWER TO THIS WIRE ALSO - THEY ARE ONE IN THE SAME.
The proprietary plug in the wire is a good idea if there is a problem "later down the road"- It would be a real PITA to rerun this connection all the way from my head unit to the license plate, having this connection in the line allows the camera to be switched out fairly easy and seeing as these are so CHEAP, I bought two extra to just have on the shelf in case of a problem later also to make sure I had ones with the same plug- my luck the manufacturer would change this plug a few months later and then I would HAVE to rerun the whole wire. This way I have them PLUS you know how it goes - if you have a back up the original usually never fails you if you don't have one they quit in a week LOL
The camera does work well, day AND night ( ooh everything is GREEN :-P ) the only problems I had with actual use were, the mount is to long it will cover your registration date stickers( I trimmed mine down as to not give a bored cop a reason ) and to get this camera CENTERED on my hitch for hooking up it had to actually be mounted shifted to the left of center of my plate ( so far over I had to drill a new hole through the mounting bracket to get the "view" centered over my hitch.
MINOR gripes though, especially considering I got THREE of these for less than one quarter of the price I paid for my last one. and YES these cameras do have the "GRID" in the display to show the APPROXIMATE distance from things behind you.
Hope this helps.
