I agree. If his camera is the Intec system, there are 6 wires in the existing cable, more than enough for new camera to new lcd monitor. Splicing/soldering a few wires is a lot easier than running a new cable down the rear cap, along the frame rail, and back up into the front area.

If you get the coach and remove that existing monitor, be careful when removing. It has to come out under the dash, and it's heavy.

I just gave them the check for the full amount yesterday, so its coming home soon and one way or another, i'll have an operative back up cam.

thank you!

Awesome. Keep us updated. Nothing like getting a motorhome for a great price and making it yours.

I'm so glad I found this great forum to guide me in the right direction and now that I'm an Elite Good Sam member, the road has now opened wider for me to travel upon with the help of you all here and my new, to me, Coach, of course!

thank you all!

Happy Holiday Ramblers!!

Just so you're aware. Your 1998 coach is built on a 1997 model year Ford F53 chassis with 460 engine and E4OD transmission. Ford didn't build a 1998 model year chassis. Ford did start building their 1999 model year chassis in early 1998. A 1998 coach could have either chassis, but you have the older one.

actually it could mean a lot. I was in the same situation with my motorhome, a 95 on a 94 chassis or somesuch. when I got my insurance policy it came back as a 94 motorhome. I had to arm wrestle my insurance agent and threatened to switch to another company and he finally cut the papers showing it to be a 95 motorhome on a 94 chassis. I would guess the insurance payback on a year older unit would be less.

He's not saying you don't have a FORD chassis, he is saying it is the earlier 1997 chassis with the 460 V8, smaller tires and narrower track. It is good information especially when looking for parts. You cannot put 1998 F53 into a part search.
