The Rear View Safety monitor uses the same 5 pin connections as Thor for the cameras. Takes about 30 min to install.

Attachment 6185

This is the 9" quad view monitor, allows you to watch all three cameras at the same time, singled, or in multiple combinations.
Is there a thread here that explains how this is done?

Yes, go to Modifications and updates, Jerry's Hurricane mods. Do know the page number, somewhere around 90. Dino made a note of wire colors, there are several options for mounting and running the wires, you need to read thru where Jerry, Dino, and myself installed the monitors, each of us did basically the same install with minor differences.

Just pressed the Home and then the backup camera button on my rig. Now music player normal when turnsignal is activated. Thanks jb1911.

A question regarding turn signal lenses fogging up...I'm a newbie so please know that...When I first start driving the right & left turn cameras work perfectly well. After a few minutes both the right & left turn cameras develop a mist on the camera lens. I checked and the lenses are clear until I have driven for a few minutes. Has anyone encountered this issue? Is there any fix for it? I don't want to drop it off at the dealer and let it sit for 3 or 4 weeks waiting for new right & left cameras. And yes, I find my mirrors work perfectly well. And I COULD do without the cameras...but if there's a fix for this out there....I would appreciate a heads up.

Don't know about the side view mirrors, but had terrible quality on the backup camera (until I was washing the coach and discovered the plastic cover over the lens) Thought I would at least mention it, in case they have protection on the side view cameras also.

Mine would go nuts with the 4 way flashes so I installed a switch to turn the control box off while using the 4 ways. no problem with the radio as it only works when it wants to,so I use my iPad.

If you don't want or don't use the side cameras you can clip the trigger wires on the switch box. Refer to the wire color list Dino posted for which wires to clip, very easy to do.
