Side Mirror Camera
I've got a nice rear view camera and monitor but I'd like to add a side mirror camera on the pax side. Matter of fact I wouldn't mind adding one on the driver side too. Anyhow, I think I'll go cheap on these. I do have a second input on my...

The PO installed a hardwired system on my coach when the Javalina wore out. The rear view fills the monitor. Fire a turn signal, the view changes to that side. It's awesome. I use the side cameras sometimes when backing into a spot.

JOR, I'll get...

Thanks. Just the kind of information I'm looking for.

Chris: Hadn't considered dual monitors.
Jeff: I look forward to this info. Really like the idea of the image changing with the turn signal.
Steve: That looks like what I'd need.

My 2018 Duramax has side cameras that change with the signal and a wireless rear camera to mount at the back of whatever you're pulling.   It's a great system and makes me want that for the coach.

Having the side come on, when the turn signal is applied is a great idea.

Like Bob, I watch both side and rear in traffic. I have no problem with the drivers side just watching in the mirror.

What I meant by confusing in heavy traffic is, just...

My son in law is installing 3 small monitors between the tv and left side up high that will show all three cameras at the same time. No need to look down off the road, just a quick glance slightly up.  I am considering the same.

I have a system I've really enjoyed.  Rear camera, two side, and will handle I think two more.  I can switch cameras easily. Default camera view rear is on towed, but since we are not towing yet, I watch right side.  Camera will activate left if...

I have two rear facing camera, one down at the toad and the other further back. I also have a right side camera that comes on with the right turn signal.  Harder to see over on that side.  I was going to add a left side camera as well but can't...

Closing out this thread. Thanks to all for the ideas. I ended up going with the little body mounted model like Jim has with the video displaying on my existing monitor. Works great.
