Video Transcript for Rear View Safety Inc Backup Cameras and Alarms - Hitch Alignment Camera Systems - RVS-83112 Review

. 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.

I found this camera system to be of poor quality. Worked one time. very poor investment and urge others to look for an alternative product. 789631

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

good unit, works well. no it is not factory backup camera, but to add backup camera and new radio with screen from dealer about $2000.00. smaller screen, but I'm used to it. works good for me. 599184

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

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 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

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. 635783

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

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. 664137

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

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

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.

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. 900612

The camera does exactly what it says it does and more. The more we use it the more we learn how to use it. While this was initially for my wife to learn to hook up our trailer, I find myself using it more and more. I believe this is a quality product. 861003

Had to make some adjustments to use your product since I am using it on trucks with a 12 volt system and also on two antique cars with 6 volt systems. With the help of my battery charger pack that has a plug in adapter on it, I can now back my cars into the long narrow garage without hitting "stuff" Great.. 850857

Just got it last night so have not had much time to use it. I did insert the battery and plugged it in and it came on and looks very good. Simple to use plug in monitor turn it on then turn on camera and it works right away. So far just as advertised. 850314

The back up camera works great however the screen could be a little bigger and the view is opposite. I have not found anywhere if you can change the view to the correct viewing. Other than those two things it has made backing up my big RV trailer so much easier. 847431



- RVS-83112
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. 829108

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!! 825545



- RVS-83112
by:

Good camera for the price. Not real smooth motion but plenty good enough to connect my trailers. Even gets pic when I put it on rear of 30 foot toy hauler to back in. Who I would like to compliment is the etrailer staff. Had a small complaint that I found it was not products fault and when I stated to the etrailer representative she was very adamant to let me know if the company did not help me to contact her back personally and she would take care of it. turns out my brand new battery had good voltage but would not hold up under load. Anyway I will not hesitate to buy from etrailer again. Great service and Great company 821169

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. 820328



- RVS-83112
by:

Helpful but not perfect. First off, be sure of your mounting surface for the camera. The back hatch of my Suburban is not metal (for the magnet mount) so I had to rig up a velcro system. The camera view takes some getting use to, but since I don't hitch up very often, it's still hard to tell when I'm right over the ball. The monitor needs to be in the power outlet a bit before its usable. I guess it's charging. The wireless system is great though. 818598

Ask the Experts about this Rear View Safety Inc Backup Camera

  • 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)...

  • Recommended Camera System to Monitor Trailer Tires During Travel
    You can pretty much mount the camera for the RVS System # RVS-83112 anywhere you have a flat surface on the truck or trailer, so I'm confident you can find a good spot that allows you to monitor the tires. The system creates its own WiFi signal so interference from mountains or potential loss of connection in remote areas shouldn't be an issue. If you have any reservations about this style though you can always lean on the reliability of a hardwire system like # RVS # RVS-770614-213, which...

    I spoke to the tech at Rear View Safety regarding the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera part # RVS-83112 and they said the most common reason of the time out error while pairing is the customer is not holding down both the pair button on the monitor and the power button on the camera for at least 10 seconds.
