Review of a Truck Bed Cargo Camera


Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at the truck bed cargo cameras for the third brake light. There is one available with an included monitor to mount to your dashboard, one with an in-mirror camera that replaces your factory rear-view mirror, one that attaches to an aftermarket monitor, and one that you can connect to your factory in-dash monitor. You'll want to check with etrailer.com to see which model is right for your truck.This camera is the perfect addition to your fifth wheel or gooseneck equipped truck. It gives you a great view of your truck bed and hitch, allowing you to easily connect the first time every time. When it comes time to hook up your gooseneck or fifth wheel trailer, you have to drop down your tailgate and you lose your factory tailgate camera. With our tailgate down, you can see we've lost visibility from what's behind us.

With the third brake light backup camera, we can flip our toggle switch, and we can see inside of our bed. This makes connecting a lot easier. Here you can see the grid lines give us an accurate perspective of where we're at. We're lined up with the red, we're right on it. We're ready to hook up.This gives you a view of what it's like to back up without a camera.

It can be very difficult and strenuous, and you may need somebody to help you. With the camera, it makes it a one-person job. The camera itself simply mounts and installs behind your factory third brake light bezel, here. It's all one piece. Then here on the inside, behind your third brake light, the harness is run underneath your head liner all the way around towards the front.Here you can see on our driver's side, underneath our head liner, how our wire is run.

From here, you can either run your wiring to your monitor or your rear-view mirror. Finally, you can connect your power wire and ground wire. Now, a toggle switch is included, or you can use the vehicle's factory toggle switch, which is what we did here.And that completes our look at the truck bed cargo cameras for the third brake light.
