Since we decided to upgrade our RV backup camera from a Furrion to a TadiBrothers system, I had to find out how to mount both the camera as well as the monitor. The whole project sounded much more difficult than it proved to actually be once I figured it out. Let me show you how it can be done.
Let’s start with the camera.
TadiBrothers makes an adapter plate but I found that I really did not need it.
The Furrion mount is secured to the trailer by 4 screws. Begin by removing these screws.
Next, remove the cover on the mount. The bracket for the TadiBrothers Camera with fit right into this mount once the cover is removed.
Now I secured the bracket to the mount using 2 small bolts with a couple of large washers. On the backside, I used a small piece of metal (but large washers could have worked here as well).
(NOTE: TadiBrothers include a rubber grommet on the cable which they inform me can be made to fit into the hole in the bracket. However, I wasted a bunch of time trying to make it fit so I simply cut it off and tossed it. The Y-split on the cable was also too large to fit through the hole in the bracket so I needed to shave it down a little with a knife.)
I then just pushed the wire into the back of the mount and attached the camera head.
On the trailer, I wired the pigtail from the new camera to the existing wire coming out of the wall. TadiBrothers also makes an adapter but I found it just as easy to splice the wires together.
After sealing the hole around the wire, I installed the mount with the previous 4 screws.
Now to mount the monitor.
The whole project took a bit longer than it would have if I had used the Furrion camera but it was worth the extra effort to get a better camera.
