Rear view camera

I have a Thor Axis with a rear view camera in reverse, is there a way to make this a full time rear view?

Welcome aboard!
There is... but it'll have to wait for someone else to tell you.
You COULD dig around in the menu settings... I saw it there in mine, but have never tinkered with it...

Yes, go to the menu and select camera, it will stay on full time.

On the Axxera screen, there should be a camera image, kind of on the right side, about 1/3rd up from the bottom. While the radio is on, poke that camera image, and at least on ours that turns the camera display on until the next re-start.

That is likely because the rear camera is setup with a mic. Some radios you can go into the config and setup the rear to not have a mic.

When I had my 2016 Axis, I had the same problem with the Axxera radio. When you have the radio running then select the rear camera, the radio cut's out. I traded my Axis for a 2017 Hurricane and had the same thing happen until the radio was changed out with a newer model (to solve another problem) now the radio will continue to play even when the camera is on full time. In my case the new radio fixed it. Could have been config'd differently by the installer.

Camera

On our 2016 Axis, we don't lose the radio but you cannot adjust the volume with the Axxera radio.

On my Axxera radio once I have the music playing (using the Menu button) I press the Mode button to switch back to the camera view and it keeps the music playing.

YES ... on the Axis...follow these instructions (above) .. in doing so, you will not be able to control volume, but you can view the rear camera. Make sure your camera lens side/rear are clean and do not have a plastic sheet covering them (from factory)

Don't know why on yours it behaves that way. On ours, if you go to camera display, yes you lose the radio display, which pressing any part of the display screen will return, but the volume control remains functional. Mine does not have a mic in the rear, so perhaps that may be the explanation.

As far as I know I don’t have a rear mic. Will keep trying. Only want the rear view as I will be towing my car behind this thanksgiving.

I have the Axxera radio and when I touch the back up camera icon, it will remain on until I turn on a right or left blinker.
At which time the side camera works.
When I complete the turn all cameras remain off and I have to touch the backup camera icon again.
However, it remains on driving down the road and it does not interfere with the radio/music when activated.

Perhaps they've figured that it's more important to see what's going on behind you; than the latest Top-10 Country hits...

First make sure radio is On, select Camera, try pressing and hold MODE for 2 seconds (slightly longer than a press).
That should switch between Radio and Rear Camera.
