Battery feed and ground are 12 gauge

 

turn signals and back up lamps are 18 gauge

sorry last one I promise! would any of the 7 be "on" only with the key turned to ACC or car started? If no, where is the easiest place in rear or 2012 Ram 1500 to pull power to rear camera I am installing? Just realized that it will always be "on" of I use pin/wires B and E on the trailer connector.


 


Looking for a rear location and wire color with a 12 Volt switched on by the ignition.

I would go to the back up lamp feed then it will only have power in reverse

thanks! I bought a 7 inch wireless monitor to camera as I will have it on 100% while driving as I cannot see out the back window (kids, load, etc.).


 


I was going to have it toggle with reverse , but will use it 100% of time to see what is behind me. Maybe if not easy, it wont draw too much ? I have the Monitor in the cab on the ignition via the keyed cig lighter, so that is good to go. now for the camera. Thanks for the help

I you plug something into the outlet the monitor is in the I may draw to much and blow the fuse. As for the camera there really is t anything in the rear that has power when key on that is safe to tap into. The only thing is possibly the license plate lights but they may be switched with the head lights
