What year is your Enertia? (It makes a difference).

I am looking to wire in a rear camera and small monitor.  I think I can just splice it into the tail light

Yes I want to wire in an always on rear camera to a 4.3 LCD monitor.  I have one which I installed on my electric fat bike and that one was easy as I just wired it into the positive and negative of the battery.  On the Enertia I tried wiring into the tail light but it did not power.  It is possible I got a defective unit or the tail light is not putting out enough voltage.  I think I can go off the power from the ignition which I will try this weekend.

Well, after all that time, what I heard was this (and no more):

Take a 12volt feed from the fuse box.
Everything under the cover is 72v

I thought I would just update this post.  I tapped into the fuse box using a standard $5 mini fuse tap from the auto supply store.  Pretty easy to use and install
