Its just one off ebay
I think this is it
https://www.ebay.com/itm/7-TFT-LCD-Monitor-for-RV-Truck-Trailer-Wireless-Car-Rear-View-Backup-Camera/223149823668?hash=item33f4c416b4:g:UF4AAOSwPkBajCA~
 
The signal was not as strong as I hoped
So I made it into a wired unit, instead of wireless
Just had to order the wire

Its not great at night
But thats not what I got it for

During daylight, its great, clear, bright
love being able to parallel park the beast
 
I also ordered 2 of these

Im planning to add the cameras to the sides
maybe to the mirrors, not sure yet
and have the monitors on all the time when driving
 
The mirrors only show so much

The snow and cold are here.
It has actually been pretty dead since Sept hit.
Oct was a couple of sporadic events.
Even on a few nice days, no one would come out for lunch service.
Well... a few.   But it's not work starting the truck for $100.
Did a few craft sales.
That actually started to look promising.
 
But now I got a J.O.B.
Gotta pay the bills right??
 
Funny thing is...  it's at a place that is doing custom fabrication.
Turning shipping containers into medical labs.
So much of it is very similar to building the truck.
 
The things I did and learned building the truck are what lead into this.
The pay is pretty decent.
 
It's actually looking like its going to be a pretty big project.
5 year timeline.
 
I have been told I can come and go as I want.
Work my own hours.
 
So we will just have to wait and see where we are come next spring.
 
Steady pay, no expenses, no real responsibility, .....  kinda neat.
The end of the day.... is actually.... the end of the day.
First time in 25 years, I am not having to get a vehicle based on what I am doing.
I can actually drive whatever the hell I want.  WOW what a concept!
 
And best of all.... I am actually doing something I enjoy!
This fabrication stuff is FUN!
 
I LIKED working in the truck.
I loved BUILDING the truck.
 
Now to be able to this, and get paid for it....

I could get used to this.

Best of luck with your new job.  I work full time and food truck in my spare time.  A steady paycheck makes the food truck a lot less stressful and more fun IMO.  You can pick and choose your setup locations and events better when you are setting up because you want to not because you have to.

A real funny thing is that right next door is a company that build food trucks.
