    Hi, I've got a problem , I need a 6 pin din to 6 pin din male to female 2 mtr ext cable suitable for reversing camera on m/h similar to a PS2 cable but needs to have return cable in as PS2 cable only goes one way, I bought one a year a go but have lost address of supplier. Also looking to find a waterproof camera as the original camera fitted to m/h was supposed to be but 6 months on, a lot of moisture inside , so needs replacing. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Sorry can't help with the cable..

    Re. Camera, look for one with an integrated heater, this keeps the lens and housing clear of condensation. Also look at it's IP rating, the higher the better .. ie.

    IP 64 - splash-proof
    IP 65 - hose-proof
    IP 66 - resistant to strong water jets
    IP 67 - resistant to temporary submersion
    IP 68 - resistant to long-term submersion
    IP 69K - resistant to high pressure cleaning

    A useful guide to choosing here>> http://www.conrad-anderson.co.uk/reversingcameras/which-reversing-camera.htm

    i needed an extension cable for my aux camera which was a 5 pin mini din.
    i just bought a 10 metre 6 pin ps2 mouse/keyboard extension off amazon for about £3.00 and cut the extra pin off.
    it works just fine
    i never understood the one way bit about these cables as copper wire dont really care which way signal goes through it.

    they are called one but in reality they should be called either twisted or straight

    Often see the twisted pair type advertised as one way though
