On our last Phoenix trip the backup camera screen stopped working. The monitor changed to a blue screen and displayed “No Signal”. I checked the monitor wiring in the panel above the windshield and everything appeared secure. I disconnected and reconnected the connector just in case the problem was oxidation. I repeated the connector inspection at the camera on the rear of the coach. I accessed the camera wiring by removing the top center marker light and was able to pull out the camera wiring.
I called Phoenix and ordered a replacement camera and connected it but no change, monitor still displayed “No Signal”. Thinking maybe a bad cable from the rear to the cab monitor but since this has worked very reliably for over two years the probability of this failing is low. Are there any fuses or other connections between the camera and monitor? Any thoughts on how to check for bad cable using a volt/ohmmeter? Could it be a bad monitor?
I have a call in to Dave Ponsler at the factory hoping he may give me further troubleshooting instructions. I would appreciate any suggestions here as how I could get the backup system operational. I didn’t realize how much I used and depended on the system until it stopped working.
