Fitted reversing sensors but was a little disappointed at the state of weinsberg junction box wiring underneath and behind rear valance none of the wires secured properly. Will have to make junction box more water tight too.
Just need to find a 12v acc in the cab area easily accessible such as mini piggyback fuses, is there a fuse layout for a 2022 ducato

Seriously...I wired a chinese kit..(Ebay) from my reversing lights into the lower skirt on My delaware Cost me £36 painted white. When it comes to just how close you can get before you are TOO CLOSE! .........It seriously was well worth the few bob spent!! Use it regularly and never failed us at all

I've fitted three wireless reversing sensor kits over the years.
The eBay ones I've always used only needed a supply from the reversing light bulb to supply the transmitter
I used a piggy back fuse into the fuse box to supply the dash board receiver.

Recently fitted tow bar and wiring to my Citroen Berlingo. The software upgrade included disabling rear sensors when trailer connected. However with the slimmest tow ball cover in place the sensors go mad if reversing solo, I have to leave the tow ball naked, then it's ok.

Just trying to connect up my receiver. What have you done here? You have 2 piggy backs - is one for something else?

I assume you piggy back on to a live feed and then connect the receiver negative to ground somewhere?

What fuse did you use and where did you find ground/negative?

I'm going through them with my multi meter but getting done weird voltages coming up like 17 and 33. I must be doing something wrong!

I watched someone in an Audi reverse into a concrete bollard that was wider than that. They were turning while backing up. They thought that beeping was for another object they'd turned past. The beeping stopped when it got with about a metre because it was between the sensors. Crunch.

Seriously, I'm in awe at all you people fitting this, fitting that, fitting the other. I've no idea with electrics but you guys make it sound so easy! If I really thought it was, I'd be tempted to fit my own reversing sensors....but I know that's never gonna happen!! :)
