Troubleshooting Furrion Observation Camera Not Activating on Trailer Due to Low Voltage


I currently have a Furrion wireless camera hooked to my 29 foot Cougar that no longer works with my 2019 GMC Sierra due to low voltage. Is there a camera that will work with my 2019 Sierra? It’s currently wired to the running lights. Thank you

The best solution for your problem is to address why your trailer's running light circuit has too low of voltage for the Furrion camera to function. Most likely the wiring of your running light circuit needs to be replaced with a heavier gauge wire. It sounds like the resistance of longer wiring has lowered the voltage which is causing the problem you mentioned. You most likely have 16 or 18 gauge wire ran for this circuit. I'd replace it all with 14 gauge wire like the part # DW02412-1 which we sell by the foot.

I also attached a link to a page that has trailer wiring diagrams for you to check out as well.
