I recently fitted a rear view camera to the caravan. Stationary the view is perfect. However when moving picture is intermittent to nil.

It is a Chinese make camera with seperate monitor.

The rig is a D4D hilux with a Penta.

Please help

Stuart

Sounds like a connection that is either not properly wired or not fitted properly, or loose. My one does the same from time to time and I use an electric cleaner spray to properly clean everything with excellent results - I do travel on dirt roads and that may be the cause. On my setup there 3 wires to the camera, but on the caravan only 2 are used - 1 for power and the other for the camera connection. On the car the 3rd one is to be used for a camera on the car .... which is not utilised at all at present.

You'll come right with this one - just check the fittings from the car to the 'van properly!!

Do you have a wired or wireless setup?

My question as well. 

  • If wireless it is as if you are driving away from the signal of the camera and there are a lot of interference on the signal.  If the camera was positioned at the rear of the tow vehicle the distance between monitor and camera is much smaller.  But with it the extra distance to the back of the caravan you get signal problems.
  • If you do use the wires the problem lies with the connections as Nico indicated.  The current that these systems use are very low and the smallest problem on a connection will give you no signal.  On some systems its even dependable on the way you made the connections.

Jou kamera moet van die beste gehalte wees, dit is iets wat jy twee of drie ure op n slag gebruik en moet jou nie indie steek laat nie.

Ek het ook daai R500van die klein ogies in gehad, en my oë het ook op sulke skrefies getrek.

Het n ordentlike kamera nou in en Al's is op n einde.

Thanks Guys, much appreciate the feedback. 

Have checked and rechecked connections but i think the only fix is to get a decent set up.

Ek wou dit ook gesê het, maar nie gedink of jy dit goed sou neem nie.

Welkom hier.

Can anyone point me in a direction of a decent camera and monitor. I know the Parrot setup is in the 9k region, which to me is rather pricey.

Wat was die stelsel wat jy gekoop het se kostes.  Ek maak sedert 2011 gebruik van die tru kamera stelsels wat alles ingesluit onder R1000 is.

Koop die by die oriental plaza en dit werk baie goed.  Ek het nog nooit probleem met dit gehad nie.  Dit is plug en play en die drade is dun genoeg om dit selfs mooi netjies binne jou voertuig weg te steek.

Check that the camera does not get its earth from the chassis but from pin 3 of the caravan plug. Easy to check, without hitching plug the 7 pin caravan plug in and connect the camera plug and check if the camera works. It should. If not you camera wireing is not getting an earth from pin 3 and is dependent on the hitch for its earth.

Groete,
Paul
