Upgrading Backup Camera

Hi! We want to upgrade our backup camera in our 2018 Freedom Elite HE. Can i just remove the old camera and cut and splice new wires? I dont want to cut it if it will affect anything other than my backup camera. We have an Axxera radio and tv and the backup camera is RVS-MV3-IR.

Why cut wires? The camera has a standard 5 pin connector, just disconnect it.

What will you be upgrading to?

Your current camera has 620 lines of resolution, your Axxera radio can display up to 800 lines of resolution. Not a big difference.

That's a better idea than cutting existing wiring. Hopefully the "wireless" part will work as expected.
