    I am looking at fitting a reversing camera and the obvious place to pick up a power supply is from the reversing lights. The MH is a 2013 Ducato and it has a tow bar, the electrics of which are controlled by a UFC module 52400542N, which looks like this. http://www.ebay.de/itm/Jaeger-UFC-Trailer-Modul-52400542N-/381035463244

    There is a pin on one of the tow bar sockets which gets a feed when reverse is engaged and at a push I could take a wire from here but it would be neater to get it, as I think I can, directly from the UFC Module. The problem is there are a lot of wires and it is very awkward to get a multimeter in to see which wire becomes live when reverse is engaged.

    It would be a lot easier if I had a wiring diagram but I can't find one to download.

    Has anyone fitted one of these and if so which is the terminal which feeds the reversing light bulbs? :):):) Or have I got it wrong and there is perhaps a relay hidden away I can't see, which I need to use?

    An alternative is to use a feed which only comes on when the ignition is on, and there is one of those on the trailer socket as well (for a caravan 'fridge) so I guess the UFC Module has another wire for this. Either way, a wiring diagram would be very useful.

    I think it is easier to use camera cable that carries signal and power. Everything is fed from the monitor at the front.

    Didn't know they did those! Many thanks and it would give me the option of switching it on whenever needed - even when going forward. :)

    Yes all the effort is in running the cables so might as well be 4 core. I ran two through mine and used the ones with aircraft screw connectors and cameras to suit.
