Position your wireless backup camera and transmitter (sold separately) farther apart for use with a long vehicle with this 25' long extension cord. It can help get your transmitter out of the elements and provide a clearer image on the display.
When mounting your Peak Performance backup camera to the back of a truck, trailer, or RV, you might need extra wiring length between the camera and the wireless transmitter so that you can mount the transmitter in the best location for your setup. Moving the transmitter closer to the monitor will give you a clearer picture. And the extra wiring length might mean the difference between mounting the transmitter in your truck bed - where it's exposed to the elements - or mounting it in your cab. To increase the distance between the camera and the transmitter, add this 25' long extension cord. You can combine up to 3 extension cords for 75' of extra length.

Today on this 2007 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to install part number PKCORD. This is the Peak Wireless Backup Camera System extension cord. To start off, our truck has already had the camera installed. Sometimes you do run into interference with items in the truck or with the truck itself with the camera. In this case you need to take the antenna and move it closer to the monitor. That's where we're going to use our extension cord. Our cord to our reverse side circuit will be transferred up to the front of the vehicle.
For a quick overview, we'll hold our antenna by the taillight where it used to be, and also our cord that goes to our camera, and our cord that went to reverse side circuit. Go ahead and disconnect those two. We can route the back and install our extension cord to it. We'll connect the two together and secure it with some electrical tape to help keep it weather tight. From this point on, we can go ahead and take the cable and run it up to the front of the truck. We'll be working our way over and through the frame up to the gas tank.
We'll run it over the gas tank and then run it up to the engine compartment. We'll zip tie our wires as needed to keep things safe and secure and out of the way of anything moving. Once we get to our engine compartment we'll go ahead and pull up our wire. Take up all our slack and set it to the side. Now we'll take our antenna and plug our extension cord back into the antenna. Then we'll take our cord that we ran through our reverse side circuit and plug it in as well.
Once again, we'll use some electrical tape to help seal the connections. Now we'll take a zip tie and take the antenna and zip it to one of the factory wire harnesses underneath the hood. We're going to pick up a reverse side circuit now from the junction box. We'll take the lid off the junction box, check the fuse to make sure it's hot only when we put it in reverse. We'll check it with the key on and off to verify how it's working. Now, we'll go ahead and remove the fuse and we'll test it one more time, to see exactly which slot gets the power. We'll need to know which slot because we're going to add a fuse tap to get our signal from this.
We'll be using part number F2526 to do that. We'll also add our fuse for the original reverse side circuit. On a fuse tap, one of the posts has to go to the hot side of the circuit. That would be the outside edge. Then we'll add a second fuse for our accessory. In this case, our accessory will be the backup camera. Then we'll hook up our backup camera wire, red to red output wire, from our fuse tap. We'll connect those two together. Our black wire will be our ground wire. We'll add a ring terminal to that, then get our ground off the sheet metal on the other side of the junction box. Our connection is made, we'll go ahead and tuck our wires away and put our lid back in the junction box. Next, we'll go ahead and zip tie our wires and take up the extra slack as needed, make everything nice and neat. Then we'll go ahead and give it a test. Put it in reverse, and you see how the display comes on. Looking at the display, you can tell it does not flicker. So it helps out having the antenna closer to the monitor. Looks like everything is good to go. With that, that'll finish it for part number PKCORD from Peak on our 2007 Chevrolet Silverado. .

I have had the peak backup camera on my pickup for years and use it to hook up to my trailers. Backup once and drop the trailer on the ball. Without this extender cable the transmitter is in the weather no matter where you try to put it and you'll find the signal to the display at times is to weak for a clear picture. This cable allows the transmitter to be closer to the display and out of the weather. Word to the wise, when you connect to this cable to the camera cable, use shrink wrap to make the connection weather proof. Thank you etrailer for all the great products and service! 98948
I ended up ordering 3 of these ext. cords, the 1st one I tried to splice and it grounded out. The 10 ft. cord on the camera with the 25 ft extention still came in about 3 ft. short, so, I used some cobble ingenuity by running the end through a piece of pvc pipe and with gorilla tape and zip ties secured in onto the tongue frame. From the transmitter in the bed of the pickup I ran it thru some cord tamer and out thru a gutted 4-prong plug receiver. Now, when I hookup, I just pull enough cord from the pickup, snap the connectors together, and pull them both into the pvc. Works excellent and keeps the connectors dry. Not too shabby for a 66yr old female grandmother. Thank you for your prompt service and availability of the product. 81137

This product (of which I purchased two) are OEM extension cords for the PKCORC backup camera system which I purchased at Sam's Club two years ago. The cables work flawlessly, and will allow me to use the camera system on my new 33-foot travel trailer as well as on the slide-in truck camper the system was bought for (which, by the way, also worked perfectly.) I have shrink-tube sealed the couplers, and will overwrap those with quality electrical tape, as the instructions call for 'weatherproofing' the connections. I ordered these cords at 11p.m. on Sunday night, and received them on Thursday via USPS, at the least-expensive shipping method ($4.99, I believe). Other than instantaneous transmission, the shipping time was quite satisfactory! The cords were well-packaged, as well. In short, I am very happy with my purchase experience, intend to conduct further business with etrailer and recommend the business! Thank you for offering what I needed and providing excellent service! Sincerely, Terry Maloney 32338

New extension cord arrived in original packing, looks good. Pricing was right, took a little longer to get than I would have preferred. This is a replacement for one I used on my 5th wheel and somehow one end got pulled off. The camera is mounted on the rear with the transmitter mounted above the 5th wheel pin. Works great!. 95749
this worked perfect to make the camera cable longer ot get the transmitter box out of the elements "weather" as that box IS NOT WATER PROOF. it would be nice if the connecters were water proof on the cable but not that bad to water proof. the cable worked great to make the camera cable longer to work on a 04 chevy pickup. local stores dont carry this and they should, they evon said they cant get it either. so this was the only place i found it. thanks for making this item for sale. 63793

I bought the extension cable hoping that if I could bring the transmitter closer to the monitor the interference would dissipate which it did greatly. With the GPS and Bluetooth the interference was so bad you couldn't see anything. Great product great service great people at e-trailer. Couldn't find this product anywhere locally and there reviews were outstanding. Thanks so much. 122782

The cables are in use now and doing exactly what I had hoped. If I order anything in the future, I won't use snail mail. 95851

Fixed my problem perfectly by allowing me to install the transmitter for my peak backup camera inside the cab of my 2002 GMC Sierra 2500 HD long bed truck. before I moved the transmitter all i9 could see was static when backing up. I also installed two 55w fog light under the frame facing rear and now I can see what I am backing up to and the camera works great in the dark. My only complaint would be that they should make the original cable long enough to begin with for installations with long bed and double cab trucks. The power cable should also be initially longer where it could be cut for shorter installs rather than trying to extend the power cord. 155473
Bought the camera after getting misinformation from the local car parts store. Needed an extension wire or take it back to the store. Thought maybe I could make my own. But took a chance on a web search and etrailer had it, exactly what I needed. As soon as I placed my order they immediately started notifying me of what was going on with it. The shipping dept had my order within an hour or so. I received it fast. I paid for the cheapest shipping and it arrived here in only 4 days. Thanks for having it; thanks for the communication; and thanks for using my employer (USPS) for shipping it. 16338
Just what I needed and shipped quickly. 117110

I purchased 3 backup cameras for my 3 different pickups. Even though I could have mounted the transmitter anywhere out of the weather, I preferred to mount it in the cabs. For two trucks, the provided cord connecting the camera to the transmitter was too short to reach so I needed two extensions. I immediately found these at E-trailer and at a reasonable price. I was very pleased with the ordering process, delivery timing, packaging, and quality of the PKCORD extensions cords. Thanks E-trailer and rest assured, you have gained a loyal customer. 13220

I needed the cord to connect a Peak camera on a 8' foot box pickup. The cord that comes with the camera is not long enough to reach the inside of the cab to mount the wireless xmitter and I did not want to mount outside of the cab. The extension cord was a seamless way to extend the camera to the xmitter. It was longer than needed but I coiled the cable under the carpet in the cab and works great. Wish Peak made various lenghts of the cable. I found this cable on etrailer.com by doing a Google search and the service was great with fast shipping. 102589

The customer service was great! Talked to a real person who answered all my questions. The cable worked out perfectly. Needed to move my transmitter closer to the reciever because I use the camera on the back of my trailer which put the transmitter too far away and got terrible reception. Split the cable and used a 4-way trailer connector to bridge the gap between truck and trailer and put transmitter inside the truck. System now works perfectly. I use the camera like a rear view mirror. 14018

Product as described and shipping was in time frame stated. I installed a peak back up camera system on the back of my 5th wheel camper to help in backing and changing lanes. I knew it would be pushing the distance between transmitter and LCD display in my truck . Sure enough the video would come and go. I ordered this cable to allow me to get the transmitter closer to the wireless LCD video screen in truck. Video when stopped is great ! Have not road tested it . 107536
I Put The Camera inside the back window of my 5th wheel, and used the extention cord to run to the front where the transmiter sits. Then I pluged into a power outlet there. Now I have a good signal for the monitor. When I park and get set up I pick up the wire and put away or use it to monitor out the side by the door for security. You could use this at Home for lots of things 101056
I ordered this product and it arrived in good condition, well wrapped and arrived within 2-3 days as promised. I have not installed it as of yet because of the cold weather. I'm certain this product will allow for a closer receiver installation and subsequently a finer picture on the camera. I will do business with you folks again in the future. Thanks Nick 63393

Thank You, I received the Cable ahead of delivery date and it was what it claimed to be.My experience with ETrailer was very pleasant, Rose G. was very helpful, It would be nice if Peak would make a variety of different size cable for other Vehicles, as 25 feet was way to long for My application, but it works fine, again thanks much 110498

With two Bluetooth phones in the truck, we had to bring the backup camera transmitter into the cab in order to get a good signal to the camera display. We needed two of these cords to run from the back of our 30 foot trailer to the cab of the pickup truck. Excellent product. Could not have done the project without these cords. 107029
It was fairly easy to install on my P/U , but if the monitor was bigger, I would be more pleased with it. I had to add the 25ft cord to the camera cord when I only needed maybe 6 more ft. to reach inside the cab. Shorter camera cord , like maybe a 10ft would have been better. I had to add 8ft to the power cord.The monitor is a 3.5 39313
by: Edward M.06/19/2013
Excellent product just what I needed to complete my installation of my backup camera. As I intend to use the camera on several different vehicles I had to modify the power cord as well as the camera cord ( make it longer ) to do so. I will be using it on my 30 foot travel trailer as well as my chevy colorado. 85259

Great product to allow me to see inside my horse trailer while driving. With original equirpment, did not have enough cable to receive picture on the unit. With the simple plug and play design and extra length, was able to move the antenna inside my vehicle and now have a clear picture inside my trailer. 153642

I was having problems with my back up camera. It had poor reception because the transmitter was not close enough. The 25ft. Extension cord solved the problem. The camera has a clear and steady picture now when I'm backing up.a good product at a reasonable price and received it fast. Thanks 152354

The Peak Extension cord is a must if you own a truck! The distance and the amount of metal that is between the display screen and the transmitter is too great. The Peak Extension cord let me bring the transmitter in the cab of my truck and now the display screen works great! 140074

The cable was exactly as I needed and ordered. Works great and allows the installation of the camera transmitter to be inside the vehicle instead of outside behind the tail light. Perfect for pickup truck applications. The camera clarity is amazing using this. 112038
by: Arnold K.09/23/2013
Very pleased with this item. It was delivered very quickly, and worked just like it was supposed to. This is an extension for the camera cord, I think you should also make an extension for the Peak Backup Camera power cord. 101111
Exactly as described. Already installed and my camera is working fine. I am pleased with the price and the fast delivery of the cord. It was shipped the same day I ordered it. Thanks 98357
Needed the extension for install in my 2012 Ford F-150. Used coed to get wireless antenna mouned in a spot where it was secure and closer to the receiving unit. Worked very well. 67889
