. take a look at the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera. Now, this part will include everything shown here on the table. It includes the wireless camera, the full color monitor, nice instruction manual, and a piece of hook and loop fastener for alternate mounting. This small, magnetic, wireless camera makes it very quick and easy to hook up to your trailer. There's no wiring, it's just a plug in place system.

It's ready to use in under one minute. Basically you just attach your camera to your ball mount and then plug this into your twelve volt power supply and you'll have your monitor in your cab. I did happen to pull a ball mount with the ball on it just to try to give you a demonstration here. What you would do .. You can see that it attaches to the ball mount.

Just point it down towards the ball, and then again, plug this into your twelve volt power source. Turn on your monitor, and you'll be able to see to hitch up, makes it very easy to do. Now, this does use wireless connectivity, which is digital, provides an uninterrupted connection for distances up to seventy feet, because it uses a 2.4 gigahertz transmitter/receiver. The camera right here is battery operated, uses a nine volt battery. Now, I do have one in there for demonstration purposes. It does not come with a battery.

It has a nice, powerful, magnetic base, which can attach to the back of your vehicle or to the ball mount, like I showed you earlier. The camera right here is a hundred percent waterproof. It's rated IP68, which means it can withstand all weather elements, and the camera does have a hundred and twenty degree camera view. The camera will automatically shut off after fifteen minutes. Another nice feature is on the inside they have six automatic infrared night vision lights.

It will give you thirty feet of vision in the darkest night, and around that they use built in foam around the lens to prevent any glare from those infrareds. The monitor right here is three and a half inch size monitor. It gives you a great view of the ball and any surrounding areas, plugs straight into your cigarette lighter. It has a flexible shaft to adjust the monitor to where you need it mounted. What I'm going to do now is give you a demonstration on how this would work. Again, we're going to pull our ball mount back up. Then to turn on your camera what you want to do, there's a button right down here. You just push that button, hold it for three seconds and then release it, and you'll see a steady blue light comes on. That means your camera is ready to go. Go ahead and attach it to your ball mount, and again, loosen it up. Direct your camera down to the ball mount. Then on your monitor I have a twelve volt power supply here. I'm going to go ahead and plug this in. Once the monitor is all plugged in, there we go, there's a bottom button and a top button. The top button is for pairing and the bottom is on and off. It's the same way if you hold it for three seconds and release it. You can see then the picture comes on. Then you see once the picture's on, let me zoom in just a little bit, and you can see there's your picture from the camera of the hitch ball. Makes it very clear to see. Now, what I'm going to do is go ahead and turn off the overhead lights just to give you an idea of what it's going to look like. Now, down here it's pitch black and you can see with it pitch black down here you still have a good view of the hitch ball because of the infrared lights. Now I'll go ahead and turn the overhead lights back on and we'll go ahead and . Again, to turn this off, let me just zoom out here, just again hold that button for three seconds and it'll turn it off. On your camera, again just hold the button three seconds and it'll turn the camera off. What's really nice on this is you can go back, pop this right onto your ball mount, go in, hitch up, go back, remove it from your ball mount, and you're all ready to go. Very simple, quick and easy. That should do it for the review on the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera.

Rear view camera works great and pairs immediately when I turn on the monitor. However, the blue light that shows the camera is connected via Bluetooth to the monitor flickers all the time and is very irritating while driving, especially at night. 578657

great little camera and monitor. i can move it to my wife's car, my truck, or the back of my trailers if i need to. very versatile. 574286

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. 555541

I'm absolutely ecstatic that the product is actually performing as they said it would. It took 15 seconds to hook it up! A great picture when placed on the tailgate of my truck. No one is happier than my wife who is no longer involved in the back up/hook up process. etrailer also shipped on time and it got here in perfect condition. Ladies, get this for the man behind the wheel, then sit back and put your feet up while he hooks up your trailer. 555045

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. 573976

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. 574361

Great investment. We use it on my Fifth Wheel Camper. I do not have to rely on my wife to guide me or jump in and out of the vehicle. I would recommend this product! 558753

I'm using it for hooking-up my 5th. wheel and it is perfect. Wire tied to the back of center head rest in my 2017 Super Duty. The picture is great and it works as advertised. 472620

Super quick delivery of back up camera. Hooked it up and it works great. I wore out seat covers in my truck getting in and out when backing up to trailers. This camera should eliminate that! 511937

by:


This is a time saver for my wife since she no longer has to direct my backing up the truck. The picture is great, full color and very clear. I attach it to the license plate and adjust it to see the trailer ball. First time every time its right on the money. I store it in the console compartment and only use it to attach vs driving with it. It works well and has never failed. I would recommend it and have to my many friends. 529338

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... 489922

This camera is awesome. I especially liked that no matter how you mount the camera, if the image on the monitor is upside down, you simply push a button on the side of the monitor to turn the display right side up. The camera mount is magnetic so make sure you have something other than aluminum to attach it to. 520787

Camera arrived on time like they estimated. Took it out of the box, read directions, installed 9 volt battery in camera. Plugged in screen to my lighter plug & set magnetic camera on tailgail within seconds a perfect picture appeared. Looking forward on using it when I hook up my 35ft toy hauler, to go camping. 494870

I love this rear view camera. I tried one from another manufacturer that used your cell phone as a monitor. Didn't like the app as it was power hungry and wanted way to many "permissions" to control the data on my phone. This system just works. Put in a battery, turn it on, and be amazed. Two things I'd improve on if I could, would be to make the camera battery a Li-ion rechargeable type, and second would be to change the blinking blue light while it's operating to steady on or go off completely once a connection is established between the camera and monitor. That's it. Small piece of tape over the flashing blue light and I'm a happy camper. I plan on using this to hook up my 5th wheel. 557958

I got the camera yesterday (Wed.) it was ordered (Sat.). I opened the box, installed 9v battery, turned on camera, plugged in the monitor and turned it on... it worked great so I did a test run for hitching my 5th wheel. Since my truck body is all or mostly aluminum I had to use the Velcro strips supplied to mount to my truck. I mounted the camera to the front bed rail in line (center)with my hitch head and once I got approximately lined up I just keep backing until I could see pin box and hitch, keep backing to within 6" of being hooked up. Monitor was clear as watching tv. Seems to be exactly what I was wanting,needing and hoping for! Thanks etrailer for selling a great product that fits my needs! 444026

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 398527

Put in a 9 volt battery in the camera and set the camera on the bumper. Plugged the viewer in the cigarette lighter, and turned on both units. It worked. Now I can see to back my boat and rv. Every new rv owner should get one of these hitch cameras. Great product especially for me, a 71 year old female. 446581

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. 403513

Camera would not turn on even after trying several batteries I had on hand as well as the two new ones I purchased. Batteries used tested well within the satisfactory range specified for 9v battery. Product obviously defective out of the box and was unable to convince the rvs customer service of that. Contacted Etrailer customer service to request return off product. Etrailer customer service handled my return professionally and without further delay. 488325

This backup camera works really well. It is very handy when you are doing one person hookup. After using it the first time, I told my wife, "looks like you are out of a job". Oddly enough, she didn't seem to be bothered one bit. Camera viewing screen plugs into the lighter, 9v battery for camera, magnetic mount so it is versatile. Easy setup. 598783

Just bought this for a Xmas gift. Tested it out quickly. Kept the camera in my garage and backed up the car. Was able to get good reception about 70 feet away, even after closing the garage door. The picture is clear and should easily aid in lining up the hitch and trailer toungue. Can’t speak of longevity yet, but will update sometime next year. 591264

Don't use it alot but it does what I want it to do. Mainly use for hooking up trailers so I don't have to get out to line it up perfect. Always a pleasure to deal with etrailer. All web sites should be like this. 586243

Do you have a question about this Backup Cameras and Alarm?


  • 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. This system will work with iOS and Android devices. This is another advantage because it means that you won't have to have a separate monitor mounted like you would with # RVS-83112. I have included a link to the installation details for you.

  • Wireless Portable Backup Cameras that Can be Moved Between Semi Trucks
  • Yes, I have a great backup camera option for you. Take a look at the Swift Hitch backup camera # SH02DIGITAL. The camera part does come with a magnet mount so there is no permanent installation required. It has an 8 hour battery life and features night vision. I have linked a video review for you. There is also a 2-camera system if you need more than 1 angle, # SH03D. The batteries on both of these systems are rechargeable. We have a similar system, # RVS-83112, but the camera for...

  • Can Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 Help Back Trailer Up
  • Yes, if you put the camera of the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 at the rear of a trailer you would be able to see where it was going while backing up so that would work for you.

  • 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...

  • Battery Life of Camera in Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera System RVS-83112
  • The camera in the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera System # RVS-83112 has an automatic 15-minute shut-off feature on the camera to conserve the power in the 9V battery that powers it. Battery life is 3 to 5 hours. The monitor part takes in 12V power from an outlet in the tow vehicle so it remains powered. There is a safety concern with having a camera system engaged at all times; it can become a distraction from your primary concern, which is the road in front of you.

She stated that leaving the monitor inside your truck during the summer months is no problem at all. The monitor can absolutely withstand any type of heat that will build-up inside the cab.

  • Operation of Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 does not turn on when you power on the monitor. You will need to turn the camera on when ever you're hitching up to your trailer. The dimensions of the camera itself are 3 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches deep. It's also 4 inches high.

  • Are Wireless Back Up Cameras Powered With Trailer Connector
  • All of the wireless back up camera systems we offer are a really easy installation but do not plug into the 4-way trailer connector. A system like the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera, part # RVS-83112. The monitor plugs into a 12V outlet and the camera is powered by a 9-volt battery.

  • Have you paired the camera and monitor yet? According to the instructions for the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 when you put the camera in "pair" mode it is only in that mode for 10 seconds. 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. If pairing is the issue then you can simply sit in the cab of your pickup with the camera in hand so that you don't have...

  • Turning Off the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 automatically shuts off after 15 minutes or you can manually hit the power button on the monitor and camera for a faster shut off by holding down the power button for 3 second on each. It is not designed to be used as an observation system, so the camera turns itself off to extend the life of the 9 volt battery it uses. To use again you will need to hit the power button on the camera and make sure the monitor is paired to the camera....

  • Troubleshooting Rear View Safety Wireless Camera # RVS-83112
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 utilizes wireless connection, so if that signal is interrupted, the camera will automatically shut off after 15 minutes. It sounds like the connection issue may be due to a loose 12V accessory connection. If power is lost to the monitor, that would obviously also cause a pairing issue. All 12V accessory connections should be a standard size, so you may want to check for bent ground or power connections on that unit. The battery...

The camera is entirely waterproof and the unit has a transmission range of 70 feet.

  • Is the Head of the 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS30093 Tilting Back Going to be a Problem for Hookup
  • If your Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS30093 is resting as is demonstrated in the attached picture that is perfectly normal. It actually makes connecting your trailer a little easier. When backing up you will just need to aim the 5th wheel hitch head towards the middle of the pin box as that is where the king pin is. If you are still a little uneasy about hooking up your 5th wheel you can use a backup camera to assist you. I recommend going with a magnetic camera as they can...

  • Recommended Backup Camera with Wireless Ability for Tractor Trailer
  • Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 has up to a 70 foot range. Depending on the amount of aluminum in the trailer, that distance may be shorter. This system uses a 2.4 GHZ transmitter/receiver. For a WiFi Camera that uses your smart phone, I recommend the Swift Hitch Wi-Fi Camera for Smartphone or Tablet - Wireless - Night Vision - 5-Hour Battery # SH04. This will use the same 2.4 GHZ transmitter/receiver but will allow you to change the antenna location for better...

  • Viewing Range of Wireless Battery Operated Backup Camera System # RVS-83112
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 has a 120 degree viewing angle and provides connection for distances up to 70 feet. It can be adjusted to see all the elements you stated as you back up your large pop-up camping trailer. It has infrared to even give you 30 feet of viewing at night. This system will work very well for your application. It will automatically shut off after 15 minutes so you just want to be aware of that time frame when using the camera.

  • Will the Hopkins Backup System Part # HM50002 Work with a Jayco 28BHBE
  • The Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera and Hitch Aligner System part # HM50002 is not a good fit for your Jayco 28BHBE due to the fact that you will not be attaching a trailer to your trailer and that the license plate mount on your trailer is offset under the passengers taillight. This means you will not have a very good view of what is behind you trailer trailer expect on the passenger's side.

  • Backup Camera Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Camper In Bed
  • You could use a magnetic mount camera such as # RVS-83112 placed on the hitch or ball mount if you wanted to. Otherwise you could use a license plate frame style camera such as # HM60195VA. A magnetic style is great if you have more than one vehicle you want to use it on. The license plate camera has the benefit of being a hardwire installation instead of wireless so there is little to no chance of interference.

  • You could use the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 to monitor your horses, but the camera for the system automatically turns off after 15 minutes to help save the battery. Unless your trip is less than 15 minutes I would look at another system that will stay on for extended periods of time. For a similar system that has a camera with a longer power life I recommend the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera and Monitor # 04928. The radio frequency can transmit up to a distance...

  • Troubleshooting RVS-83112 Wireless Camera and Monitor System
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 is designed to automatically shut off after 15 minutes to conserve your battery. Because you are having issues with it shutting off prematurely, you may have a pairing issue or there may be an issue inside the camera itself. Since you put a new battery in it already, that removes the weak battery possibility. If you are having further issues outside of the pairing of the camera and it just shuts down, if you are within the 1 year...

  • Recommendation for Backup Camera on 2014 Ford Edge With Factory Camera Blocked by Cargo Carrier
  • There is not a work around for your current factory camera when there is an obstacle like your cargo basket blocking the lens. If you want to have your full camera function, you will need to either remove the cargo basket or lower it so your lens isn't blocked. If you want to add another camera, you can use the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 which has a magnetic mount and will allow you a separate monitor connection for your backup view with your cargo basket in...

  • Recommended Backup Camera That Uses Smartphone Or Tablet
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera, part # RVS-83112 you asked about is not designed to work with a smartphone or tablet. We do not carry any systems that is capable of using both a monitor and a smartphone. Rear Safety also makes the # RVS-83112-WIFI. This system uses a WiFi signal to allow you to use a smartphone or tablet to receive the signal from the camera. The transmitter on the camera creates a WiFi network that will work with the Safetyeye app you can download for free.

  • Recommended Rearview Camera System for a 2017 GMC Van
  • I have the perfect option that will allow you to align the hitch ball on your 2017 GMC Van with the coupler on your trailer without having to exit and reenter the vehicle. For this I recommend using the Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera and Hitch Aligner System part # HM50002 as this system has both backup and hitch alignment technology. The SmartZone sensors beep to alert you of distance to and direction of objects behind your vehicle and increase in intensity as you get closer to objects. The...

  • Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera
  • The camera you asked about is exactly the same as the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 with the exception that this one uses a 9 volt battery and not a rechargeable battery and the same features, including shut off, apply to both. You also cannot rig either to an external power source and neither will work reliably inside a trailer, they are designed to be used outside a trailer. The option that I recommend over the Rear View is the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera and Monitor...

  • Battery Life For Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera
  • The battery life for the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 is estimated at around 3-4 hours, but will vary based on how many times the camera is used. My technical contact at Rear View Safety was able to tell me that the camera is designed to turn off after 15 minutes to conserve the battery power. The exact battery life will depend on the battery used, outside temps, how many times the camera is turned on and off, and how long it is used each time.

  • Recommended Observation System for Enclosed Car Hauler to Monitor Traffic
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 is a good camera, but it is not the best system for monitoring the traffic behind you as it is intended for simply connecting to the trailer. My recommendation for an observation system like you are seeking is the Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System - Cigarette Lighter Adapter # RVS-091406. The camera power will be wired to the running/clearance light circuit (so you will have constant power to the camera when connected)...

  • Help Backing Up Travel Trailer on 2017 Ram 2500
  • Even at a short distance and going slowly, I do not recommend using a front hitch like the Draw-Tite # 65063 or Curt # C31015 on your 2017 Ram 2500 to help back up your travel trailer because your trailer's tongue weight is well over capacity and it simply would not be safe. The best option for you is a back-up camera, the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112. This is an easy to use system that suits your needs perfectly, with the camera having a magnetic base you can attach...

  • Backup Hitch Camera with Night Vision
  • The Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera System # HM50002 does not have the infrared operation necessary for night-vision capability. But we do offer cameras that have this feature, such as the similarly-priced RVS Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112. The RVS system is shown in detail in the two linked videos I included for you. It features a magnetic base on the camera, which gets power from a 9V battery instead of from wiring you need to install. The camera includes a power-saving auto-off...
