Horse Trailer Camera Interference
Ok, so I don't know how many of y'all will be familiar with a camera used in a horse trailer to watch horses going down the road, but I figured I would ask. So, I have it hard wired through my display on my dash, back thru the cab, over the wheel well, then back up through the bed, where it hooks into the connection attached to the trailer. It's a standard white/yellow A/V cable hooked into my amp/"brain".
The problem is, I'm getting a lot of interference when I hit the brake (ie, squiggly lines across the screen). I initially zip tied the cable very close to the brake light cable (unintentionally). I repositioned the cable away from the brake lines/cables, but still getting the interference. The camera cable is still pretty close to the brake light as it runs up close to the tailgate on the driver's side and into the bed. I'm thinking it's still interfering there.
Is there any way to wire it into the plug for the trailer brakes/lights? Then put the camera cable from the trailer into the trailer plug? Hope this isn't too confusing and complicated for ya. I'm no electrician by any means.
Thanks in advance for any/all advice!
