I am a cretin with car thingies .

I have had a camera installed on the back of my car and a screen on my dash . This all works fine .

Now I have mounted a camera on the back of my 16' van and I am going to run the wiring down a conduit from this camera to a plug at the tow ball . The guy who did the car , will then run this camera wiring through from the back of my car to the screen with a switch to change from one camera to the other .

What sort of plug should I use to bridge the gap or does the wiring go through the big trailer plug like the other stuff ? Yes , I said I was an idiot , and no , I really don't know and I need an answer .

Thanks ,

Willie

We use a spiral cable and 2 sockets.

Hi Derek ,

Thanks for the info .That is a pretty serious cable running into the plug from the van . Do I need a special thickness cable etc to run that long distance from the back of the van to the car ?

If I do , can you tell me how much say 8m of this cable , plus the two plugs pictured would cost me ( freight inc ) to Sydney .

Thanks a lot ,

Willie .

It is only the curly cable that is so thick. The cable between the camera and monitors is thin 4 core shielded cable.

Email me for more info.

Ray and Lizard ,
Thanks for your help . I think I will get those bullet proof plugs and lead from ABR as my van cops a flogging .

Hi Willie
I just purchased the whole system from Derek at ARB and installed it last week for its first real test this long weekend just gone.
Mate it works a treat and that curly cable between the van and vehicle is the ducks nuts as far as strength goes and would take a fair hiding in any offroad situation.
For my money I would go with that cable, but you would have to have the matching plugs on both vehicle and van as they are real heavy duty stuff
Cheers Ray

They do but I didnt like the price for the Wozza connection so just use an RCA cable and a converter in the car to connect back to the Polaris cabling
