Video Transcript for Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera Review

Hey everybody, how's it going Today we're going to be going over the Rear View Safety wireless hitch camera. So this camera system here, it can be used in a number of different ways. It can be used for fifth wheel and gooseneck and even bumper pole travel trailers. So if we're going to be using it with those embed hitches, we can easily just place this on the roof of our vehicle to help us align with our fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer, so we can get the pin box lined up or the hitch ball for our gooseneck coupler. We can also use this for bumper pole travel trailers as well, by simply placing it on the ball mount or the tailgate slash half of our vehicle. So this particular system is completely wireless, meaning we don't have any wires that run between the actual camera and monitor themselves.

Therefore, we can pretty much mount the camera anywhere we need to. It has a durable, strong metal magnet, so we can attach it to any metal surface whether that be the tailgate, the hatch or the roof of our vehicle. Now, alternatively, if you have a surface that you want to attach the camera to that isn't metal, we have this nice little hook and loop fastener patch that comes in our kit here. It's double-sided adhesive, we'd simply attach one side to the bottom of the camera and the other side to the surface we're trying to mount the camera to. So there's a few different camera system options on the market.

Now with the wireless one, meaning we can easily remove the monitor or the camera while not in use, this is gonna be great for people who are just occasionally towing, maybe once a week or a couple times a month. If you find yourself to be towing every day then chances are you probably want something a little bit more permanent, you don't mind having that bulky monitor mounted on your dash. So in that case there are going to be some other options for you. But for those people who are just infrequently towing, you're definitely gonna understand the value that comes with this wireless system. So a big thing with the wireless camera systems, people are always concerned about the range.

The range of this particular system is gonna be 70 foot. So no matter what truck and trailer combo we have, we're going to be covered with this system. One note I do like to point out with is that it doesn't actually work very well with aluminum bed trucks, such as the newer F-150s, due to the high chance for signal interference. So if we take a closer look at our monitor, you can see here it has a nice clear picture, it's definitely a lot better quality than I expected. We also have this nice little sturdy Mount here.

We can easily adjust the camera, or we can easily adjust the monitor for the correct viewing angle that we need from the driver's seat. It also has this little sunshade so you don't have to worry about glare from the sun. But while we're actually taking a closer look at the monitor we can actually tell sort of the quality of the camera. So it has a nice 120 degree viewing angle, so we can easily see pretty much bumper to bumper here on our truck. Now we can't show you this but it also has some built-in infrared LEDs on our actual camera, so to help with us at night as well. So fortunately the camera is actually completely waterproof, so we're still going to be able to use our camera system while it's raining, or any other type of weather we may encounter. So as far as actually operating the monitor, it's pretty simple. We have our power button on the right-hand side and we actually have another button above that, and that's gonna allow us to change the orientation of our camera. We can go ahead and cycle through those settings now. So keep in mind, we don't want to travel down the road with our camera attached to our vehicle, so you will want to remove it after we've already coupled our trailer. But then, we're just gonna simply hit the power button to turn it off, and then we can throw it in our glove box or center console, wherever we want to store the camera. Keep in mind, if you do forget to hit that power button, it's no worry at all, our camera will turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity. So we're first going to start by inserting our nine volt battery in the back of our camera here. Keep in mind the battery is going to be sold separately. There's gonna be two small screws here, which we'll move. Then we can take off this cover, simply snap in our nine volt battery and then resecure the cover. But once we've done that, ready to mount it. So this camera can be used in a couple different ways. If we're using this to help us align the hitch ball with a travel trailer then we're probably going to place it somewhere on the back of the truck here. It does have a magnetic base, so any metal surface we can attach it to. But another use for this camera that you may not be aware of, is it actually works really well for aligning your fifth wheel and gooseneck trailers. So if that's what we'd have, we'd probably want to place it on the roof of our vehicle. But since we're going to be using this for a travel trailer for this demonstration, we're gonna go ahead and place it on the tailgate here. So it's a good idea, if your truck's a little dirty, just go ahead and clean the surface off. That way you don't have to worry about any dirt causing any scratches. So once we clean that off, since we have the magnetic base, we'll simply just stick it on there. It's a pretty strong magnet, so it does grab on there. And you know what we're gonna do is We're gonna loosen these two little screws on the side. This is gonna allow us to adjust the angle to get the best view of our ball mount and hitch ball. That way it can help us when we're aligning our trailer coupler. So once we got the correct angle set, we're simply just going to tighten down these some screws. And once we have the angle set, we're ready to turn the camera on. There's gonna be a power button here. We'll simply press and hold that for two seconds until we get a solid blue light. So now that we have our camera set up, we're ready to set up the actual monitor. So this is what our monitor looks like, it has a nice little wire leader on the back that plugs into a cigarette lighter outlet, so we're obviously gonna need to have one of these on our vehicle. So here's where the 12 volt outlet is located on our vehicle here. We'll simply press it into the fitting there. So to turn it on, we have a power button on the side of the unit here, we'll simply press and hold that, until we see the blue light, then we have the backlight illuminating as well. And there we go, we have a nice clear picture of our hitch ball and our ball mount, and we're ready to couple our trailer. And that's gonna do it today for our look at the Rear View Safety wireless hitch camera..

Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera - RVS-83112

Average Customer Rating:  4.4 out of 5 stars   (166 Customer Reviews)


by:

I think this model has been discontinued by RVS. The one I had, used a 9V battery plugged inside the camera case. They make other similar models with internal rechargeable batteries. This 9V battery powered version would just turn off after a few seconds, with a known good battery. Acting like the battery was old or weak or dying - when it was a nearly new battery. RVS, the manufacturer, replaced it with a version with a rechargeable battery and it works great.
Also, the image on the display was a mirror image of what the camera was viewing, it was confusing to back up and always made me turn the wrong direction. That problem is not present with the replacement system.
I was not satisfied with this camera, but I am happy with the one RVS sent (a different, but similar model) to replace what I consider a defective camera. I do not know if it was only the one camera I had with these problems or if this particular model is notorious for these problems.
I did not inform etrailer of these problems until after the 30 day replacement window. Also, etrailer (within 30 days) would have only been able to do one of two things, exchange with same model or refund. RVS replaced this camera with a more reliable, different model camera. Thanks RVS.


Comments
This camera system is powered by a 9 volt rechargeable battery and does have a 1 year warranty. We do a system that uses your smartphone and does not require a 9 volt battery. It is part # RVS-83112-WiFi

The camera system works well. It’s made hooking up my trailers much easier and quicker. However. I’m having to use rechargeable 9-volt batteries that I have to remove when I’m not using the camera. Even with it off. It still drains the battery.


Comments
I talked to the manufacturer, they recommend using a 9V Lithium or Alkaline non-rechargeable battery for the RVS-83112. If that doesnt work and the battery is still draining, I would say the camera is defective and to start a warranty process.

by:

I needed a backup camera for ram pu. you can't see bumper or dump trailer hitch.
The mirrors don't work. Most of time 99% of time I'm by myself. So a camera was the answer.
This one was the one I needed,it had a nite vision and color in daylight. With the magnetic base I can put it on tailgate and see all . Monitor just plugs in 12v assorey . its portable I can use on tractor also. used it twice so far and it's Great.


Comments
Its a time saver and easy to use on any vehicle with 12v outlet.
George W - 10/19/2021


by:

Other than a factory install this is the best option for a cargo camera. The only hitch was that the magnetic mount does not stick to the new Ford aluminum bodies. I mounted a steel plate to the bed cover and once it is folded up place the camera on it. I have a 5th wheel hitch and it is in a perfect position for hitching the trailer.




by:

Worked perfectly out of the box. The magnet holds onto the liftgate of my Honda Pilot, and it works fine for backing up to the trailer, however it wouldn't be powerful enough to leave in place (which it isn't designed to do anyhow). The display unit it bright and clear, and when the camera is placed directly behind the ball, you get an excellent reference to putting it right under the coupler, making hooking up a breeze.

The battery for the camera is a tight fit, and I'm hoping the battery clip leads don't chafe. Overall a great product so far.




by:

This is a Christmas gift, so I haven’t had a opportunity to view or use this device. I have several trailers and backing up to the hitch means jumping in and out of the truck numerous times. Since my older truck ( 1979 F 150) does not have backup cameras this will be a great addition. The gift is for me and I’m anxiously awaiting Christmas.


Comments
This camera has worked out very well my son in law has a built in camera on his new truck and this camera works just as well I’m impressed with how well it works. Thanks
Carl - 12/13/2021


by:

I love my camera. Its very easy to use. The picture is pretty good, just takes a little getting used to. Makes hooking my trailer by myself quick and easy.. Can even use it in my horse trailer to watch my animals while hauling. Very happy with my purchase.


Comments
Still love this camera after a year. I use it every time I hook my trailer.
Heather - 04/03/2022


by:

Simple set up and works great. I have multiple trucks and trailers and this works great to move from truck to truck or trailer to trailer when hooking up doubles.




by:

For the product I would give it 5 stars but shipping and the wait time from etrailer I give it 1 star. It’s unfortunate but I wouldn’t buy anything again from etrailer simply for the long wait on shipping.




by:

12v connector from the monitor is not steady or secure, adjustable but flimsy, loses power, causing the system to fail. Image is great when working.


Comments
I was able to contact rearview and they think your cable is bad. These systems do have a 1-year warranty.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 02/23/2022


by:

This is a great product once the monitor pairs up with the camera. I travel solo and the lens on the backup camera on my pickup is offset about 3 inches to the side of the tailgate handle. It has been trial and error to back up to my camper hitch until I purchased this wireless backup camera. I takes a little getting used to the small screen and pairing the two units was a bit tricky. That said, the magnet on the camera base is strong and the color screen is very helpful.


Comments
I love this backup camera. After using it for a year to hitch my travel trailer without a spotter, I cant imagine camping without it. I back the truck up to the hitch receiver perfectly every time with this camera guiding the way. Great product etrailer.
Ramey - 06/24/2021


by:

My sole purpose for getting this unit was to facilitate hooking up my travel trailer. In that role, it has performed well. It has saved me many trips from the driver's seat to the hitch. I did try using it once on the back of my 29' travel trailer to assist backing into a campsite. The refresh rate seemed to be problematically slow, so if using it near the limits of its range, do so with caution. For my original intended purpose, though, it's a great product at that price point. Be sure you have a "cigarette lighter-type" socket in an appropriate place for the screen to plug in and a place for the camera that will accommodate its magtetic base.


Comments
Still pleased after having it for almost 2 years now.
Panhandler - 06/17/2021


by:

Worth Every Penny. Ever had to get out of your truck more than 6 times to perfectly line up your hitch to your ball? Well, once you get this system down pat you may only need to check it once or twice before dropping your hitch on the ball. It's as good as having a helper line you up, but no need to train them in hand signals. I'd recommend this to my friends and already have to some. Recommendation: Back up slowly to your hitch. You never know when it might be too high and damage your truck before you realize whats happening. I mount my camera below the tailgate latch for better horizontal alignment to ball. Also, start your camera before your in-cab monitor for fast pairing.


Comments
Its been a year now, and Ive learned to change the camera 9v battery if it wont connect in cab. Every time I do this were back to like new live video of the hitch alignment. Enjoy.

Nice camera. I picked this one out of three that was able to work with my 1996 Chevy Dually Truck. I picked it because I could use it on my other trucks when hooking up a trailer. Very easy to set up and use




by:

I use it when parking my camper and it gives me an excellent and clear view of what I am backing into.




by:

Monitor resolution is excellent, Box says ready to use but a 9V battery is not included.




by:

I just received my hitch camera and so far I am impressed with the quality and appearance. I tested it out on my truck and it took less than a minute to stick the camera on the tailgate and plug the monitor into my power socket and power it on. The image was crystal clear and I think it will make lining up my trailer hitch so much easier without a spotter. The real test will come when I put it to use over and over and see how it holds up. So far I am a happy camper.


Comments
After using this camera over the past year, I am still very satisfied with it. It has held up extremely well and I would highly recommend it.
Tim M - 06/12/2020


by:

Great picture! Easy to use. I use for backing pickup back to my travel trailer and also when backing travel trailer back to my fence.
Only thing that could be better is a bracket of some kind to place it directly above the ball.


Comments
It works great! Receiver connects with camera almost instantly. I have placed camera in several different positions to try to find the best angle which equates to versatility of the camera. One of the clicks for the 12V adapter broke the 2nd time I used it, but it still works fine.
Ron D - 07/23/2021

Easy setup and good quality picture




by:

Product arrived in timely manner. Well boxed. Read instructions, inserted 9v battery and voila, instant success. Placed on truck and with one minor adjustment hooked up trailer in one go. This camera is all as advertised, I'd buy it again in a minute. Will tell my friends of great service of etrailer and employee Adam E. Thank you...

Ive had this camera for a year now. Used it about a dozen times. It always does the same thing, it works!! I tell anyone who asks to buy one and buy it from E Trailer.

I ordered a rvs systems hitch camera. Part number RVS-83112. The camera worked, but not to the 70 foot range that it is advertised to do. I have a 42' rv, with the camera placed on the rear bumper it did not work. So I have been in touch with Caleb H in customer service to try and return this. I had to send him pictures of it, which I did. Then he told me he'd email the return info. I never received the info. This was on a Friday, he said he'd get it to me so I can ship it out over the weekend. On Monday ill be calling again to see if I can get something. Terrible customer service.


Comments
I am sorry to hear about any inconvenience with your order, Dustin, and have forwarded your comments to our customer service department. I see that they are currently working on a resolution to replace the defective product.
-- Etrailer Expert Laura E - 07/10/2017


by:

Unfortunately, this device does not live up to it's billing. Apparently the signal strength is very weak, and/or the update rate is so slow it's basically useless! I have a full size dually truck with an 8 foot bed - that I use to carry a truck camper. The intent was to use this device from inside the cab to help me back up to connect my trailer while the camper is in the truck obstructing my view.

Either the camera stops transmitting or the receiver/monitor stops updating - and while backing up to hook up my boat - that's a huge problem!! The monitor shows the tongue of the trailer is not even in view yet, and then I hit the trailer tongue!! Not good at all!!




by:

A neat product. Worked as advertised and the magnet is strong enough to put the camera on the tail gate and aim it down in the hitch ball. Works better than the license plate camera due to the angle from above.


Comments
Still working great.
Chlo-E V - 08/28/2019


by:

Great product. I have to connect and disconnect a gooseneck trailer twice a day and it's such a pain getting it right without a spotter. The screen is smaller than I expected, but does the job very well. I like that it's so compact, I can hide it easily. I didn't want something permanent. I wish I had gotten the model with the rechargeable battery, but not the biggest deal, this will probably last longer in the long run.

Pressing the power button for the right amount of time takes some getting used to. But when you do, it's SO FAST. Also make sure you have the screen mirrored the right way. Will definitely buy products again from RVS and etrailer.




by:

I just received this camera today so I have't had the opportunity to use it yet. I gave it 5 stars already before using it. I have the confidence in etrailer and their products to give it 5 stars prior to use. Everything I have ever gotten from them have has been class A products and always works without errors. I have every bit of confidence in etrailer and the products they sell. They're quick to fill the order as well as to ship them. I've never waited more than a week on anything ordered regardless the size of the item. Because of their excellent customer service , I will continue to buy from etrailer as long as they have what I need. Excellent place to buy online.


Comments
It worked great for awhile. Then it quit. Turn it on and in about 5 seconds it goes off. Changed batteries and the same thing. But I came up with a better way for hooking up then the camera.

  • How to Pick Between Rear View Safety Back Up Cameras RVS-83112 and Wifi Model
    Essentially the two camera kits have the same cameras but have different monitor options. The # RVS-83112 comes with a monitor that plugs into a cigarette lighter port. The # RVS-83112-WIFI connects with your phone or tablet with a wifi signal that allows for communication. Realistically that will be the only difference. If it were me I would go with the one with the monitor though as I wouldn't want to use my cell phone as the monitor since it would also require a mount too. Reception...

  • Wireless Backup Camera Versus WiFi Backup Camera from Rear View Safety
    Rear View Safety Backup Camera System # RVS-83112-WIFI is the way I would go. The reason is that WiFi is less likely to suffer from any interference issues like other wireless systems.

I have included a link to the installation details for you.

It also takes 3 seconds to turn the monitor on so you would need to be moving pretty fast to get from the back of your pickup in time to pair the monitor.
