The Wheelie Bin is just too handy to leave at home thus no reversing camera.
Has anyone gone for an independent reversing camera with a decent screen?

.... or is it simpler to relocate the original?

A certain Snow Gum would appreciate any assistance ;)

Did you hit it wheelie hard? If you had a reverse camera, who wasn't lookin'.

It sounds like you have already relocated the original.
What other help would you like the forum to provide?

Hello
Assume he is taking a trailer/caravan (referred to as a "wheelie bin" for some reason) and therefore reversing camera in car of no use. Snow Gum = reference to grey hair/age of person ?

I assumed the wheelie bin was a rubbish bag that fits over the spare wheel on the rear door.

It covers the reversing camera, hence the question about an alternate camera system

I thought maybe the wheelie bin can be seen from inside the cab, put the bin behind the rig when reversing, the bin being tall?

Hey Dad1340
Seems you need to explain a bit more.
Is the "snow gum" you refer to an actual tree , that doesn't want to get hit again??

What about the family that lived on a farm that had a long driveway.

Every bin day they hitched the wheelie bin to the back of the 4wd and took it to the front gate for collection later in the day.

One day Mom forgot about the bin, and drove it all the way to school. The poor plastic wheels and axles were on fire.

Now a rear camera would have helped in this case.

I can't remember if someone told me this happened at their place, or if it's an urban legend.

Lol, I did that with the work bin one day, hooked it up to take down the front (long drive) and locked up, forgot it was there.
A couple of km and onto a main arterial road, got a toot from the bloke pulled up next to me.
Sheepishly drove quietly back to the workshop kerb :/

Sister-in-law did that up in Ayr. Drove to the front gate with the bin but kept going into town. Centre parked the car but the bin was still sticking out into the road. Husband was getting calls from locals who saw this mad woman driving at pace past them with a bin on the back.

I think that he is talking about the rubbish bag that attaches to the spare wheel that is mounted on the rear of the car.
It is an issue for my Prado with the camera in the centre of the spare wheel, renders the camera useless if I leave the rubbish bag on it..

Could be talking about using the bin as his reversing stop point.
Hit the bin and hit the brakes.

dad,
I take the rubbish bag off and place it either in the rear of the tug or in the camper and empty it at the first opportunity.
No advice able to be given in relocating the camera or adding an additional one.
There will be people on here who have done both.

Might help to define the issue better.

See if we can't put it in pictures.



Can't help with alternative rear view cameras, but if you google FJ Cruiser Rearview cameras, you will get heaps of ideas for alternative mounting locations.

If you can't move it, you could easily slice a generic camera into the existing system.

Don't forget moving it may have an effect on the reverse warning system.

RMD

Is that really the best you can do?

These sort of responses are quite tiresome and do nothing to answer the OP's question.

Normally I don't respond to such petty attacks on people's desire to appear better or smarter than others, but it appears that it is fast becoming the norm on the forum. Perhaps that is why some of our regular contributors don't post as much anymore.

LOL, Wheelie Lad's, the question, that the sharper ones picked up, was this:

- A Wheelie Bin in a 4WD context is a heavy duty Rubbish/Firewood Bag attached to the spare.
- Toyota's have their reversing camera installed in the centre of the spare
- When the Wheelie :) is covered in red clay and full of rubbish far from the maddening crowd, disconnecting is a less appealing option to regain use of the reversing camera.

I've found the solution elsewhere but my thanks to all at ExploreOz for the entertainment. Brilliant

Cheers

He actually entertained a lot of people.
Quite funny really. How our language around Australia, does vary quite a bit across the country. I didn't think of the rubbish bag as a wheelie bin, and hadn't come across "snow gum" either. Every area has different little sayings etc.
Just great heaps of people have had a laugh.

But , Dad , what was your solution ? After all you've got us curious now!

Oh well, we're probably all a bit strange to someone else sometimes. I'm a bit strange when I look at myself sometimes.

After all the chatter on this the OP's post was just not explained in enough detail.
Rereading I see "wheelie bin "is covering the camera, but to me a wheelie bin is the one you wheel out for the collection, so therefore my confusion.
