Question No Video Detected?

We have a 2017 Thor Tuscany 42GX.
The camera has always worked well with turn signals and reverse. Now, just stopped working. Unknown reason for failure.
Any suggestions? Thanks!

All cameras? Or one?
If all, it's likely a loose video cable from the switchbox to the radio, or, loss of power to the switchbox (not likely if the camera is triggered on the radio but no video signal present).

Five or more reasons almost all involve a connection failure.
If we tell you how to get under the dash and diagnose, are you capable/skilled/equipped to do it?

I always suggest a stereo shop. They fix stuff teenage drunks installed. If they can fix the wiring a drunk/stupid or stupid/drunk 16year old did, they can fix anything.

Most of them will have you diagnosed in 15 minutes.

So we have isolated the problem to the drivers side camera. We disconnected that camera and the other two (passenger side & rear) work fine.

Any suggestions on how to replace that camera? TIA!

Are you sure it's the camera and not the cable? Or a "futzed up" cable connector? I would isolate that before going further.

Good call. Any instructions or video on how to dismantle the drivers side mirror in order to access the cables?
Thanks so much!

Try plugging the cable from the driver camera into one of the other ports... the passenger or rear. Does the camera work?
