Is there a wiring schematic for rpods? I imagine it would be slightly different for each model.

No. There are no wiring diagrams for rPods. They are not only different for each model. But they might be different each day on the same model.

Thanks I figured if it was available someone would point it out to me. I am interested in that because I want to add a back up camera and need to find a suitable power source close to the back of my 180.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Typically, backup cameras tap into the center clearance light for power.

There are no clearance lights on the back of a 180 but there are side clearance lights that could be used.
Thanks

There are in fact high mount clearance lights on your trailer. They are required by law. 3 lights, mounted in the spoiler.
If you do not have these, contact FR immediately. But if you go look, I am sure you will see them there.

My mistake, there are three small clear 1" diameter clearance lights in the spoiler.I will tap power for my camera from them.
Thank you for pointing this out, I guess it's time to get my eyeglass prescription checked.

Heh, sometimes I forget about them too, but if you're around the back of the trailer at night with the lights on, you'll remember!

Yes. My dealer tapped into the center light on the spoiler to get power for my backup camera.

Thanks that's good to know. The camera is just below that center clearance light then, maybe a foot lower?
