Good morning Tom!

I keep adding them to the end of the original post to keep it all in one place.

We have had that problem, first solution on old Jeep Wrangler was to install a flip switch on the battery and disconnect when we were on the road. That did solve the problem. And we always carried
a jumper unit... now we have a new 4 door Wrangler 2015 and some of the things that had to be installed come installed. Some diode and who knows what.. Anyway we have not seemed to have
a problem yet. The way things are hooked up on the new P C may give us cause for alert but not enough road experience to be convinced we have battery or not. We did about 1200 miles home from
Elkhart and the jeep cranked when it was disconnected so we have not had our lessons yet. We have a Roadmaster Sterling towing set up with an air braking system cylinder to allow our brakes to
work when applied in the PC same as when we had the class A.  we soon find out  if all works like we hoped. Good luck no tow car battery power  is something we put up with for a while. Patricia

P S  Did a trip over the weekend and things did work well coming and going. Trip was 2 or 3 hours but enough that if things were not working right we might have had  no cranking.

on my crv i've installed a "toad charge" it solved the problem.

you have to turn off the ignition key overnite. the first order of business after parking is to take care of the tow.

E-Trailer sells a Roadmaster park light diode ,RM-690 At $10.99.

We had the problem with our Fit. Solved the problem by running 8 gauge wire with a fuse from the battery to the PC's tow plug.

Thanks for that information.  I figure the spare tire was deleted for reasons of weight ratio.  I only wished they kept the spare tire compartment in some fashion, maybe style it differently so it looks like a regular storage compartment where you could mount a spare tire inside, or use to store your zero gravity chairs.  Keep it an ever flexible decision for the owner, even after taking delivery.

Our 2350 weight ratio is worse only to a 2100.  Our older 2007 model has the 41 gallon water tank sitting up against the rear wall over the rear bumper.  Between that and the spare tire, they introduce the slight rear end sag and significant handling issues.  Though our handling issues got addressed via other means, the weight ratio remains poor.  On trips, the weight on our rear axle is near the limit, but the front axle has so much margin.

I wonder how our rig would look and handle without carrying fresh water & spare tire.  That would make for an interesting experiment on a weekend get-away.

As to your other comment,  Cheers to Kyle, Earl, wife, and daughter Aimee who created the PC website and manages this forum.  While I am at it, Cheers  to Kermit and all the rest of the PC family.  Cheers

Ah...ok.  After looking up that camera model and doing a bit more internet investigating it appears the original camera is indeed a Sony. The Sony service center apparently refers folks to  Riverpark (800-442-7717) in Elkhart, IN, which handles all distribution and service matters for Sony backup video systems. Riverparks retailer is RV Cams (877-378-2267). Your replacement appears to be a non-Sony. The Sony's may have had historically bad luck with moisture issues and stopped producing backup cams.

One step closer to having the info I need to possibly replace the original camera with a dual, or adding an additional.

Thanks much...

Awesome that the PC family found your resolution.  The people here are great.

Even us seasoned PC owners sometimes forget the simple things like that.  It was a good reminder for me.  The last time my wife and I utilized CATV has to be about 6 years ago.  Like yourself, we might be away during the first debate and will want to watch it too.

The RED LIGHT and BUTTON!!!  Of course. You people are the best. Thank you all for your help and jogging my old brain. Now the cable is working fine. We are not big TV people--OBVIOUSLY since we have not used the cable in some time. We will still be on the road when the first Presidential debates take place and wanted to be able to watch them.

Also a good idea to keep the antenna off when not in use.

Thanks again, Nicki
