On my Camper bus I have a colour digital camera facing aft of the bus. Its like a reversing camera buts its on all time and its connected to the tv inside the bus. It works fine but the driver cant see the screen which is sorta ok the kids can see it.
Just scored a small monitor like the ones you see in Pimp my ride it was from a rubbish truck.
My question is can I tee into the wiring and connect this monitor or am I in ga ga land and what sort of cable would I need?
Thanks for any help.

Think its against the law to have a screen visible to the driver.

A TV ( entertainment ) visible to the driver is not legal.

Reversing cameras are another matter like also GPS screens like Tomtom etc.

No biggy I can just take the power thru the reversing switch on the gearbox.
Funny my service truck has reversing monitor with a switch that can be turned on when driving, been through at least 10 COFs
