Power Supply: The hideaway power supply box features a 2-pin Molex plug on one end that connects to the supplied
14.5' power/signal harness which then plugs into the camera's attached
cable proprietary connector, supplying power and signal. The length of the
camera cable is 25.5' when combined with the power/signal harness. The
power/signal harness also includes a 57" RCA output lead that feeds the signal
to your monitor. In addition there is a switch port to connect the included
switch unit. On the other end of the hideaway power supply box is a 4-pin Molex
plug that connects the power harness which includes the 39" power wire,
39"ground wire and 5" reverse sensor wire which all will all need to be
hardwired to your vehicle's electrical system.
Mounting: The multi-view camera comes supplied with a metal
