Nifty Solution for Dirty Cameras

Cameras on the tail of trucks get dirty, and getting out of the warm and dry cab to wipe them off is annoying. MS Foster to the rescue with a very innovative camera washing system.

Started by removing the right headlamp assembly to gain access to the stock washer tank.



Then a 3/4" hole is drilled for the washer pump, grommet installed, pump added.

Once grommet inserted, then interior switch installed. Installed it near the monitor for the cameras.

The tubing was run along the right frame rail and tied off on another wire loom.

The washer jets attach to the cameras using a longer cap screw through a carbon fiber nozzle assembly.



Push button = clean cameras.

Couldn't you just use a y connector in the stock windshield washer tubing?

Then whenever you'd wash the windshield you'd wash the camera...seems like that would work as well.
