On my last leg towards home, the video camera has just a blue screen.  Leaving the Pine Ridge campground near Frandenmuth decided not to work right.   Called the mfg and he said a wire must have come loose from buppy ride?  Ive done almost 1000 miles and had no problem. Of course the wiring is behind the TV of which I cannot check until I get home and hope for the best that the car will be ok.  So far it has a crack in the windsheild which will be fixed when I get home.   
  Anyone else have this problem. Hopefully it will be easy to fix with my son's help.

I've had two sony monitors go out on me Kermit says if it a blue screen it is usually the camera, if it is blank it is normally the monitor. Still waiting on the second monitor. Factory replaced the first one, didn't feel like driving to get second one installed so I asked them to send one to me. I hope this doesn't keep happening, theis is the second in less than a year.

Didn't every toll booth operator let you know your car was still there?   LOL rolling on the floor

I had this problem on my first PC.  Someone on this forum advised me to pull the cable from the back of the PC and check the connection to the cable going to the front.  I pulled the cable by removing one of the top lights, unhooked/reconnected the two cables, taped them to make sure the connection was tight and stayed tight, and the monitor worked perfectly thereafter.

  spoke to Kermit today and he said it was the camera that was the problem.
   I will check out the cables to the camera and monitor. All wiring is behind the TV up front which I do not know how to get into.

The cable I mentioned connects to the camera in the cavity in the back of the PC.  The camera has a short cable that connects to a longer cable that goes down the back, under the bottom and up to the monitor.  The slack in this cable can be pulled up by removing the light where the cable enters the back of the PC.

ok. Will check it out. thanks.  I called the factory and talked to Carol and she was to get back to me. the former owner of my coach did not get the camera/monitor from PC. Ordered it direct from RV Cams Inc. and evidently installed it themselves so Carol had to do some research and was to get backto me today.  Still waiting.  Will call her again.

Talked to Carol and the former owner just had cables installed and he purchased the cameria system from the company.  Talke to the RV Cams, Inc and I have to check out the cabels.  So I will inlist my son next door and see what he can find out.
Than ks for all the replies.....
