We had a problem with back-up camera

Turns out the house battery has to be in the "use" position in order for the camera to operate.

Yes we have. The radio did not come on also. After we arrived at destination I noticed blue light was on at the on and off switch. The radio and camera worked on he way home. ????? I may call radio company or email them tomorrow.

Jensen RV212T??
Search 'JRV212T blank screen' for all the details...
Can be an intermittent issue - my second one just started.

Back Up Camera

Tabatha - what did you do to figure it out? We have 2017 Freedom Elite on Ford E450 and our camera is not working. It usually stays on all the time. Unfortunately we did not receive a manual on the back up camera - it was factory installed. We are on vacation right now. Anybody with ideas?

We did not have the house battery turned on

Back up camera

Tabatha - thanks, we checked the battery. Going to check fuses next. This is so frustrating!

We had our camera go out. They replaced the radio which the back up camera is with. Also storage switch must be on when operating radio/camera.
We have freedom elite 2017.

I scrapped the Jensen RV 212T from the RV for good. It was a useless POS from day one. Constantly fighting the touch screen for any reaction. When my display went out I called the manufacturer to realize they will never stand behind their product. I didn't care for a double space unit replacement. I installed a Kenwood single DIN unit for music, $58 shipped. Rearviewsafety.com has all of your fleet camera monitor system components. Purchased a 7" display, multiplexor (allows existing cameras to communicate with new display) and adapter cables, all in at $224 shipped. Better than the $800 for new Jensen unit. No more Jensen for this cowboy!

I have the same problem but it looks like I have a different radio.
Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

This is how I fixed mine. Replaced Jensen head unit with a Pioneer single DIN and installed a camera display on the dash. DIY install and wiring is required.

My backup camera WAS working when we ended our November trip, but was NOT working when we left three weeks ago for our January 9th trip. Still kaput so wondering what the next step will be. We bought the 3 year extended service plan for our 2012 Freedom Elite 28Z and it seems that this in NOT excluded, so should be covered. Guess we'll go hassle with Camping World to see how long this takes to fix.

Back Up Camera

We never did figure out why it went blank but it spontaneously worked after we got home from the trip in May and has worked ever since.

If you figure out what is going wrong, please post it! I would be interested in what CW says about this.
