Not radio issues but wiring problems.
Butter knives worked fine for me.

Talking Axxera Radio connections

I have a 2016 Thor ACE 29.3 with an Axxera radio. I have had problems with the video feed from backup and side cameras for a long time. I am posting here three photos of the radio, a 3-port video switch, and the connector between the video switch and the radio.

This video switch WAS NOT SECURED under the dash by Thor. It was simply stuffed up in the dash between the driver and the radio. It was bouncing around and literally fell out of the dash.

Furthermore, the yellow-ended video connector cable was a piece of crap. It wiggled while driving and I would lose the video feed. Despite reaching up in there and re-seating the connectors several times it would not remain tight.

So finally today - I removed the radio from the dash and replaced the damn cable. The radio came out easily with the removal tool provided by Thor with my coach "black bag". Its only about a 24 inch cable. The new cable - which I had in the house - had a much tighter fit. I then taped the connections at two points. One at the video switch and one at the radio. I tested and then returned the radio to the dash. I found a spot under the dash to secure the video switch with Velcro and returned it and all the wires under the dash. I also tightened the screw connectors coming to the video switch from each of the three cameras.

I'm hoping this finally resolves the failing video feeds from my coach cameras.

The radio removal tools were in the black bag full of paperwork, miscellaneous hardware and user manuals when we picked up our rig.

This image shows what the tools look like. But as others have pointed out, you can accomplish the same thing with two butter knives.
