Back up camera systems

I recently purchased a 38' 2006 Monaco LaPalma. Has an old tube type B&W backup camera system. I have been researching systems for about two months and after much discussion, purchased a wireless Haloview MC 7108. Mostly great reviews. Unfortunately, I could not get a signal from the camera to the monitor. Found out from Haloview that the camera needed more voltage than the coach's 12VDC system could provide and I would have to buy a $20 power booster from them to make it work. Shipping time approximately one to two months. (Not going to happen) This is what I ended up trying: Took the camera into the coach and set it next to the monitor. Hooked up a 12-32 volt adjustable DC to DC convertor/power booster to the camera power input. ($4) Adjusted the output to the camera from 12 VDC to 25 VDC. Camera light came on but no signal on the monitor. Went through the pairing process according to instructions in the installation manual. STILL NOTHING. Spoke with tech assist at Amazon who assured me that the power booster from Haloview would make it work, GUARANTEED. I did some additional research and discovered that this is a common problem with these wireless cameras. Most companies either include a booster in the box or at least inform their customers of this issue up front. Some companies will sell a rechargeable battery pack for this application. Neither Amazon or Haloview mentions anything about this in their description or in the product info guide. I believe in my case the camera was just defective. I returned the product. Now I am searching for my next try. This could have been common knowledge and I am just so new to this that I wasn't aware. Maybe it be helpful for someone.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo tires

This is what I love about forums. So many experiences and stories about what works. I am going to reduce pressure in new Toyos to around 90 and then see if putting 2000 miles on them makes a difference. I have no weight above curb weight yet. I don't want to introduce to many variables at once. Thank you all for great info for this Newbie. God bless.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo tires

Thanks for feedback. All good thoughts. I tried three different tire pressures starting around recommended 100lbs. I have about 400 miles on the new Toyos.

Michelin vs Toyo tires

I recently purchased 2006 Monaco La Palma. 24,000 miles. Great coach. Had Michelin tires on it but datd code was 2005. I did a lot of internet research and bought some Toyo m154's. The coach was a great driver on Michelin's. I drove home after the change and it was terrible. Wandered and rear swayed terribly. Did another internet search and learned about sway bars, quick fixes and safe t steer. I checked under the motor home and was disappointed to discover a safe t steer and upgraded anti sway bar. Did I screw up? I'm considering going back to Michelins. This was a really expensive mistake if I have to replace the Toyos. Any thoughts?
