sorry for the delay...........
IF the Installer has any experience, he should be able to "make" a Extension for the Camera
Using RCA Cable
Besides the PLCMPS48 has 2 connectors
A YELLOW connector that is the Camera
A RED connector that is Positive + & Ground -
After pluging in the Harness to the Camera & running the Harness as far as he can, he should be able to connect a RCA Cable to the YELLOW Connector & Positive + & Ground - to the RED Connector.
For the Back Up Sensors, you can do the same
IF you do not want to add more wiring, I take mine & put the Sensor Box up under the Driver Rear Wheel Well Frame, after connecting & I enclose the Sensor Box in Plastic Baggies & wire tie it to the Frame.
Have installed over 100 of these & it works fine

The video feed cable is not the problem... We have plenty of length and the connectors are very simple. It's the backup sensors that have a 75 ohm co-ax 'video' cable with a unique connector that is hard (impossible) to splice according to an electronics expert that we consulted. We have also looked at the 'baggie option' and decided that I would get about a year out of the box because all plastic degrades or allows moisture in given the harsh, wet environment that is subject to freeze/thaw and extreme heat. If I cannot find a longer co-ax with the right ends, I found a small, acrylic, sealed 'hard case' that I want to try mounting in the wheel well using a couple of stainless steel hose clamps screwed in place. Do you know where I can find a longer (15') 75 ohm co-ax cable? This company does not have ANY customer service (unless you know something that I do not.)

sorry if you do not agree..........
I have been installing for over 20 years & used the Plastic Bag for Ford Trucks since 2002 & have never had an issue.....
Of course this depends on the Plastic you use
I had one customer have me use a Plastic tuperware box that worked even better, but was not cost effective for us.
IF you want to extend the cables (not recommended), Try:
