For my birthday this year, DH actually knocked it out of the park with the gift, and my involvement was minimal - miraculous! A few weeks ago we were sitting on the front porch enjoying coffee when he handed me his phone and asked if I thought this would work for a trailer camera. I've mentioned wanting them a few times, and I had a few systems on my Amazon wish list (usually put there after yet another friend got one installed and raved about it lol), but most of the ones I had on my list were wireless, and he preferred one that was hardwired in. I paged through the reviews (including one from someone using it as a horse trailer camera), said I thought it sounded good, and that I was totally fine with this system if I didn't have to help install it (I'm sure you can imagine how that went lol).
|He was really obsessive about running the wires through the dash so you couldn't see them, but weirdly unconcerned about actually screwing the monitor in, haha.|
|On the maiden voyage on Sunday! About 30 seconds after I took this picture, Cinna tried to put her head over the divider to mess with Trigger, so the camera immediately alerted me to the fact that I needed to shorten her trailer tie lol.|
|Camera in the trailer.|
|That plug to the trailer camera, so now I have to plug in the lights and the trailer.|
|Camera on the bumper.|
|Making good use of the backup cam to put LONGBOI in the garage 😂|
This is one of those things I've been meaning to do for AGES so I'm really glad it's all set up! It's so nice to be able to glance over and see the horses just chillaxing during the drive.
