I have a 2020 Ford Escape - Titanium. I currently have my Thinkware U1000 (front and rear camera) system hardwired with a BlackVue B-124X battery. The cameras receive power without issue while parked. However, the vehicle's modem powers off, which prevents me from viewing the vehicle's camera system while parked. I am not sure, but I think the modem is embedded with the Telematics Control Unit Module. The service provider is AT&T. I know the fuse for the module is #11 (5amp) under the glove box, but this fuse is also used for the power liftgate and hands-free liftgate actuation module. I am wondering if I should hardwire to this fuse (probably with a battery expansion) to power the modem as well as the camera.
