I installed The PK015737 on my 2008 Ram Quad cab PU. Intitially, the camera worked perfectly. However, shortly after installation, the monitor is static and jumpy when the truck is running. Works fine when engine is off. The transmitter is located behind the right rear tail light assembly Any sugestions?

Like most consumer electronic devices, the Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera, # PK015737, is made so that it will accept interference in accordance with FCC regulations. This sounds like what is happening. If your 2008 Dodge Ram has any bluetooth technology or other similar wireless connectivity technology, that could be interfering with the monitor, causing the problem you are experiencing.
You can also try to move the transmitter to see if it is picking up residual electricity from the wiring behind the taillight. You can also try moving the monitor power supply to a different port, if you have more than one available.
Finally, the vibrations of the truck running may reveal any flaw such as a loose or broken connection in the wiring, causing the poor display on the monitor. You could go back and check the wiring to make sure everything is connected properly. I have included a video review for this camera for reference.
