Question, I have a factory fitted Waeco camera on my Hobby van. Would it be possible to change this to a twin camera?
I removed my Waeco single camera and replaced it with a twin lens system from . Picture quality was much improved (Waco 5 years old) and it's great to have one camera dedicated to reversing and the other for rear view whilst driving.
The system has a cable from each camera which join a single cable running to the monitor . The single cable hole for the Waeco was a little too small for the new cables but I found by elongating the hole a little, like a keyhole, I could put one cable through first and the second could then be pushed through. Fairly easy to remove the Waeco cable from my Hymer and replace it with the new one.
I fitted a change over switch inline with the camera input to my stereo unit, if you connect the second camera into one of the Aux inputs it mutes the radio/sound when the input is selected.Other thing to think about is what you are using to view the picture from the camera. If it's a dedicated Waeco monitor you should be OK but it you view it through something else, for example your cab radio unit screen or any other type of shared screen, you need to make sure that whatever it is will support inputs from more than one camera.
