About the Crux RVCCH-75DC Backup Camera System
The backup cam just for you
The backup cam just for you
Designed specifically for select 2013-up Ram vehicles, this Crux RVCCH-75DC rear-view camera system allows you to integrate backup video into your factory radio. The package includes the CH-75D rear-view camera, an interface and harness that connect to the factory radio, and a power/signal cable that you'll route from the camera to the front of your car.
Once installed, you'll see a generous, well-lit picture of what's behind you, with a 170-degree wide view and video capture down to 0.2 Lux for night driving. Crux also gives you the option to enable on-screen parking assist lines so you can gauge distance more easily.
NOTE: The Crux RVCCH-75DC backup camera system is compatible with the Uconnect radio with 8.4” screen, the Uconnect radio with 5” screen and 6-button/2 knob interface, and the Uconnect radio with 4.3” screen and 6-button/2 knob interface. This system is NOT compatible with diesel models or those with factory-installed cargo cameras.
Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know.
What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)
What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.
How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.
Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.

More details on the Crux RVCCH-75DC Backup Camera System
Sightline Series Rear-View Camera System: The Sightline series RVCCH-75DC rear-view camera system by Crux has been specifically designed for select Dodge Ram trucks that are equipped with a U-Connect factory radio. Now you can use your vehicle's factory radio to see what's behind you when backing up. The RVCCH-75DC comes with an interface module and the necessary harnesses and cables to connect the rear-view camera to your vehicle's factory system.
Note: The RVCCH-75DC rear-view camera system is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.
Vehicle Compatibility: The Sightline series RVCCH-75DC rear-view camera system is compatible with the following Dodge Ram trucks that feature a U-Connect factory radio with 8.4" screen with separate knobs, 5" screen with 6-buttons and separate knobs, or 4.3" screen with 6-buttons and separate knobs.
Not compatible with diesel powered vehicles.
This camera will not work in RAM trucks equipped with the factory installed cargo camera.
Factory radio must be a "MYGIG" radio.
Automatic Rear-View Switching: The RVCCH-75DC features automatic rear-view switching. This means that when you place your vehicle in reverse gear, your factory radio's monitor will automatically switch over to the rear-view camera so you can see what's behind you immediately.
Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash factory radio. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 3 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Yellow (Clear), Purple (Getting Close), Red (Very Close).
Note: You can turn off the parking assist lines by cutting white wire loop of the back-up camera cable.
Replacement Handle Assembly: The RVCCH-75DC's rear-view camera flush mounts in the included bracket/handle assembly. This custom-designed mounting bracket and handle assembly replaces the factory handle of your truck's tailgate. First you will need to remove the factory handle from the tailgate and then install the bracket/handle assembly in place of it. You'll also need to drill a 18.5mm (5/8") hole behind the rear-view camera in order to route the wires and cables.
Power/Ground & Signal Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 19" power/signal cable which plugs into the included 20' composite video cable and the 46" power/ground cable. The composite video cable then plugs into the include vehicle harness. The vehicle harness plugs into the RVCCH-75DC's interface module and your vehicle's factory radio.
Installation Note: Because of the cables attached to the tailgate, you will need to disconnect and reconnect the camera each time you remove/re-attach the tailgate.
