Running wires for backup camera

I just bought a new GMC 2500 SLT with the backup camera option. Had the dealer give me a camera as part of the deal. The instructions say not to run the wires under the trailer. My thought is to run them thru a pvc pipe then seal both ends. The only reason I can think why they said that is so protect the wire from road damage, rocks etc. If anyone has done this or has any constructive thoughts please let me know. Installing on a 2013 BF 25FB.

Thanks;
Steve

I have run wires for second trailers, back up cameras and many other things over the years and my suggestion is to run the wires in a safe place to avoid damage, but to use a extension cord for your wires. The wires are protected plus in a protective covering, as well as being flexible in cold weather. Solder all your connections and cover them with heat shrink tubing. Good luck with your project.

I ran wires for a backup camera to our trailer through a loom for the rest of the trailer wiring. It goes from inside the back window to the front then exits the trailer with the rest of the wires into a loom. It connects to the truck wiring with an RCA plug. I power it with the running lights so I can use it like a rear view mirror while driving. It's also hooked up to a separate screen than the double din stereo.

Thanks for the suggestions I mounted the camera on the generator boxes I have mounted on the rear bumper then ran the line down the side of the frame and sheathed it in a piece of PVC where it was close to the tire.
