Expert Answers about Peak Performance

  • Recommended Wireless Backup Camera To Mount On Back of 5th Wheel
  • You could mount the transmitter of the Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera, part # PKC0RB, at the very front of the fifth-wheel but there would be an increase in interference as the signal would have to travel through. To mount the transmitter at the front of your fifth-wheel, you will need to use Extension Cord for Wireless Backup Camera System, part # PKCORD. One end of the extension cord would plug into the transmitter and the other end would plug into the camera. Another backup...

  • Troubleshooting Peak Wireless Backup Camera Monitor LED Blinks but No Picture on Monitor
  • I spoke with my contact at Peak, and when the blue LED is blinking, and you do not have a picture, it means that the monitor has power but it is not receiving a signal from the transmitter. This can happen for several reasons so you can check a few things to narrow down and pin point the problem. I am assuming the unit is wired according to the instructions. If so, it will only come on when the truck is in reverse. If the truck is on and in reverse and the LED is still blinking and you...

Next, you will have to extend the wires coming from the transmitter going to the vehicles backup circuit, behind the rear taillights. You could wire the camera to a 12 volt constant power source or the tail light circuit and turn the camera...

  • Back Up Camera Options for Backing Boat Trailer
  • The camera of the Peak Performance Wireless Back Up Camera System is designed to withstand the the elements when installed on the license plate frame of a passenger vehicle, but it is not capable of being submerged. Repeated immersion in water will eventually damage the camera. The Master Lock Wireless Backup Camera System, part # 4843DAT would probably be a better option for you. The camera has a magnetic mounting surface that could be attached someplace on the trailer that will...

  • Installing Peak Wireless Back Up Camera on Fifth Wheel So That it is Constantly On
  • You can indeed install the camera so that it is on constantly. In the install video I have linked you to, you can see that the camera unit has a cable that contains two wires. The black wire is grounded to the vehicle frame or chassis, and the red wire is typically connected to the reverse light circuit. Instead of the reverse light circuit, you can connect the red wire to a constant 12-volt power source. The maximum allowable distance between the transmitter unit and the monitor is...

  • Emergency Battery Powered Trailer Light
  • I believe what you are referring to would be something like the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights # NV-5164. These are wireless and would bypass the trailer wiring. Or, for like an emergency flasher type light that is battery powered you would want the part # HF18A-MB or # HF18R-MB.

  • Best Place to Mount the Transmitter for Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera
  • The best place to mount the transmitter for the Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera, # PKC0RB, depends on the vehicle. If installing it on a car, the transmitter can be placed in the trunk. If installing in an SUV or van, the rear cargo area would be a could location, like in the video linked for reference. On a truck, it would be best to route it in the cab of the truck using the Extension Cord, # PKCORD. Basically, you will want to mount it in a place that keeps the transmitter...

  • Tapping Into Vehicle Fuse Box To Install A Backup Camera System Without Splicing Factory Wires
  • To wire a camera like the Peak Performance Digital Wireless Backup Camera w/ Color LCD Monitor and Night Vision # PKC0RB into your vehicle so that it only comes on when in reverse, will require tapping into your reverse function wiring. Without knowing your specific vehicle, I can't tell you the specific fuse location but your owners manual will be able to help you. If you choose to use this as your power source, I recommend you use the Firestone Fuse Circuit Tap Kit # F2526 and run...

  • Recommend Backup Camera for Truck and 45 Ft Enclosed Trailer
  • The item you selected, Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera, part # PKC0RB, has a range of up to 197 feet when there are not any obstructions. There will be an increase in interference as the signal would have to travel through the walls of trailer and truck cab. I would recommend going with a camera that has a longer range like the Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera with Night Vision, part # 04928. The Swift Hitch Camera has a transmission distance of up to 300 feet if there are...

  • Troubleshooting Static Display on Wireless Backup Camera Monitor with Engine Running, 2008 Dodge Ram
  • Like most consumer electronic devices, the Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera, # PKC0RB, 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...

  • What is the Range on Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera
  • The Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera w/ Color LCD Monitor, item # PKC0RB, is designed for use in a range of about 75 feet. Interference from items such as microwaves and other systems could shorten the range but this is a good guideline. I would suggest using the taillight circuit at the rear of your RV to power the camera and transmitter when the taillights are on; if you want to use the system while towing. This way all you have to do is turn the taillights on to use the camera...

  • Backup Camera Installation and How To Find the Reverse Light Wire on a 2004 Dodge Ram 3/4 Ton
  • On the Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera, # PKC0RB, there is only one harness that needs to be hardwired to the 2004 Dodge Ram. One of the wires goes to the reverse light wire behind one of the tail lights. The other is the ground. To find the correct reverse light wire, you will need to use a circuit tester like the Quickee # 3808. Have someone sit in the truck and place it in reverse. Of course, use caution. Safety first. Probe the wires behind one of the tail lights until...

  • Can Transmitter on Peak Wireless Back-Up Camera # PKC0RB Be Mounted Behind Tail Light Assembly
  • The closer you can get the transmitter to the monitor, the better your reception will be and the less interference you will get. Wireless back up cameras operate at 2.4 GHz, which is a pretty common frequency. The closer the transmitter is to the monitor the more stable the picture. You might be able to mount it behind the tail light assembly, but I would try to get it in the cab. It is recommended to keep the transmitter out of the elements. The wire from the camera to the transmitter...

  • Troubleshooting Non-Functioning Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera
  • The Peak Performance Wireless back up has a range of 197 feet from the transmitter to the monitor. The more obstructions between the transmitter and the monitor, the weaker the signal. Mount the camera to the rear of the camper, and mount the transmitter as close to the vehicle as possible. The higher the transmitter is mounted, the better, that way the signal does not have to pass through a tailgate or bed walls. If you can mount it to the top of the trailer, inside, it should be able...

  • Alternate Wiring of Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera # PKC0RB
  • Installing the transmitter on the front trailer wall might work for you, but it will depend on how much line-of-sight interference there is between the transmitter and the monitor. You should do your best to keep the transmitter out of the elements, so mounting it on the inside of the trailer or other protected area is best. Variables such as the thickness and composition of the trailer wall and whether or not anything will be in the truck bed to interfere with the signal from the transmitter...

  • Troubleshooting Blinking Monitor on the Peak Performance Wireless Backup Camera # PKC0RB
  • Two things can help with interference with the Peak Performance Wireless Backup Camera w/ Color LCD Monitor # PKC0RB that you referenced. You can move the transmitter closer to the display/receiver by using a # PKCORD if necessary.

  • Using Running Light Circuit for Installation of Peak Performance Wireless Backup Camera # PKC0RB
  • The Peak Performance Wireless Backup Camera # PKC0RB is usually wired into the reverse light circuit for activation but it certainly can instead be wired into your running light circuit. Wired in this way the camera will be activated whenever the motorhome's lights are on. Please note this unit does not have a GPS function. You'll need to identify which wire on the motorhome carries the running light signal. Often this will be a brown wire but there is no guarantee. Testing with a circuit...

  • Picture When Vehicle Is Moving Slowly But Blank, Delayed, or Blurry Traveling On # PKCORB System
  • The Peak Performance Digital Wireless Backup Camera w/ Color LCD Monitor and Night Vision, # PKC0RB should have a distance of 656 feet for the digital transmission to work and you are well within that distance. However, metal often times will interfere and interrupt that transmission and that range is without obstacles. This unit is designed to be used on the back of your vehicle and may not function properly on the back of a trailer. You may want to play around with the mounting location...

  • I spoke with my contact at Peak Performance about the Wireless Back-Up Camera with Color LCD Monitor, # PKC0RB. He stated that the unit draws about 25 milliamps of power. The transmitter is not waterproof so it is susceptible to the elements. He stated that you can seal it in a plastic Zip Lock type bag or in a sealed plastic project box with minimal interference. The transmitter has a range of 75 feet. You might also be interested in the Extension Cord for Wireless Backup Camera System,...

  • Peak Wireless Backup Camera Shows Interference Only when Vehicle is Running
  • It sounds like the truck might be equipped with some kid of BlueTooth or wireless technology. In this case there is not a whole lot you can do other than try moving the monitor to a place with the least interference. You can also try moving the transmitter as close to the monitor as you can for the best signal. You may need the extension cable, # PKCORD, to accomplish this task.

  • Obtaining 12-Volt Power Connection When Installing Back Up Camera System
  • The installation procedure will depend on the camera system used as well as the year, make and model of the vehicle. The Peak Wireless Camera system # PKC0RB would gain its electrical power by tapping into the reverse lamp signal of the vehicle, as outlined on page 6 of the instructions I've linked. A camera system like the Rampage Products # RA7710 is battery powered and transmits to your Android or iOS phone via Wi-Fi. The Hopkins Smart Hitch Camera System # HM50002 would tap into...

  • Wireless Signal Loss with Peak Performance Back Up Camera and Sound Box in a Jeep Wrangler
  • The monitor will not work if it is disconnected from power. Without power, it cannot receive the transmission and convert it to a video projection. It does not have a battery in it. The lack of signal could be due to either the sound box or the the power re-wiring. If this is a sub woofer box or a box with power amps, they could cause enough enough radio frequency interference or electro-magnetic interference with the sub-woofer magnet, to prevent you from receiving signal. Depending...

  • Recommend a Backup Camera for 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 Crew Cab Truck
  • We do have a video of the Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera, part # PKC0RB, being installed on an Isuzu SUV, but not on a truck. The Peak Camera is not vehicle specific, so the process will be the same except for mounting the transmitter. The transmitter needs to be kept out of the elements, so it will need to either be in the cab of the truck or under a camper shell. If installed in the cab, you will need to extend the wires from the transmitter to the camera and reverse light wire...
