I just got a 2018 Crossroads Sunset Trail 28BH. Trying to install the Furrion backup camera but can't seem to get power. The camera works fine when tested via the car power adapter but gets no power when mounted into the pre-installed bracket on the back of the trailer and connected to the wire that's inside the bracket. The car is hooked up to the trailer in case the camera is wired to to car rather to the trailer's battery. Tried putting the car in reverse, no power either. Wondering if anyone knows where the wire is connected - whether there is a switch or a fuse that I need to switch?

Check your fuse box. It may be wired but not fused.

It's been a while for me, but it seems to me that you need to make sure your running lights are on. Turn on the headlights and see if that turns on the camera.

Lights were on as the car was running and headlights are automatic.

All the marked fuse slots are already fused. See attachment.

Mark, I've only had the trailer and camera for 2 trips thus far, but if my memory is correct, my camera only comes on when I'm in reverse, or when I have my running lights on. So, if I want to use the camera while going down the highway, to check the bike rack for example, I need to have my running lights on.

My trailer is older and I had the wire it myself. I went the ďlazyĒ route and wired it to the running lights. I guess Iím jut disappointed Crossroads did the same thing despite having the opportunity to wire it ďrightĒ before assembling the wall.

Regardless these cameras are indispensable. Iím impressed with the signal quality when driving.

I agree, they are handy and we have never had an issue with the signal either. It's going to take me a while to get use to using it though after years of relying on my mirrors and my backup captain - wife!
