Hitch Alignment Made Easy

The Swift Hitch camera and monitor make it easy to hook-up your trailer

The Swift Hitch aligner gives you a second pair of eyes so you can quickly align your vehicle's hitch ball with your trailer's coupler. It eliminates trailer hookup headaches like getting in and out of your vehicle, relying on a spotter, and accidental collision. The camera wirelessly transmits video to the hand-held monitor, and both are battery powered - which means no complicated wiring is needed for installation. And the camera's place-and-point design lets you reposition it for each job.


Place the Swift Hitch camera on your tailgate and watch the monitor from your cab as you back-up

Using the system is easy. Attach the camera to your tailgate - the magnetic base makes it simple to place the camera wherever you need it - and point it at your hitch ball. Hop in the driver's seat, and use the monitor to watch your progress as you back up your vehicle. No getting out of the truck to check, no deciphering the hand signals of your significant other, and no running out of patience. Once the hitch ball and coupler are aligned, all that's left to do is hookup and hit the road.


For gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers, attach the camera to the back of your cab for a helpful look into the bed of your truck as you back up to the trailer.


Not only can the Swift Hitch be used when hitching up, but it is also great for hooking up snowplow blades, for use as a backup camera, and for monitoring a variety of areas around your home, farm, or jobsite.


Night Vision Camera with 4-Hour Battery Life

The camera's 4-hour battery life gives you plenty of time to complete the job. The camera sends images to the monitor from up to 300' away and gives you a targeted, 55-degree viewing angle (horizontal and vertical).


Swift Hitch SH01 night vision camera with 4-hour battery

Seven infrared lights surround the camera lens to provide up to 15' of night vision so you can get the job done in the dark. Night vision automatically activates in dim or dark conditions and turns off when lighting improves. When the camera is using night vision, images are displayed in black and white on the monitor.


Rear view of the Swift Hitch SH01 camera

The back of the camera has an antenna, an on/off button, an LED light, and a jack for the charging cable. The LED light changes color to signal when the camera is on (green), when it's charging while the power is on (yellow), and when it's charging while the power is off (red).


Place-and-Point Design

The Swift Hitch SH01 camera has a magnetic base that attaches to your tailgate

Setting up the camera is as fast as place and point. First, place the camera's strong magnetic base on a metal surface. The magnetic base lets you easily remove and reposition the camera depending on the job - unlike a backup camera that's permanently mounted at the rear of your vehicle. Plus, the base has a smooth, non-scratch nylon backing.


The Swift Hitch SH01 camera has a rotating stem

Next, point the camera at your hitch ball or target. A stem with a rotating ball joint sits between the camera and the magnetic base. The stem smoothly rotates 360 degrees, allowing the camera to be pointed in any direction and hold its position. For some applications, such as monitoring horses inside an enclosed trailer, the camera can be mounted semi-permanently. Pre-drilled holes in the magnetic base let you mount the camera using two 1/8" screws or bolts with wing nuts (not included).


Durable Construction

The Swift Hitch camera is constructed with durability in mind. The body, stem, and base are made of durable, rustproof aluminum, and the exterior has a UV-resistant coat of bright yellow paint.


A clear plastic cap protects the rear of the Swift Hitch SH01 camera from water

A clear plastic cap is included to protect the camera's rear end from rain or other inclement weather, particularly when the lens is pointed at your hitch ball. The cap fits snugly onto the back of the camera. The on/off button can be pressed while the cap is on, but the cap will have to be removed when you want to plug in the charging cable.


Hand-Held Monitor with Full-Color LCD Screen

The Swift Hitch SH01 hand-held monitor

The hand-held monitor features a 2-1/2", high-resolution LCD screen that displays crisp, clear full-color pictures (images appear in black and white while camera is operating in night vision). Video is displayed in mirror image by default to give you the same viewpoint as your rearview mirror, but this setting can be switched to non-mirror image if you prefer. The monitor has a battery life of up to 4 hours when fully charged. It is recommended that the monitor battery be fully charged before first use.


To turn the monitor on or off, hold down the button on the front for 3 - 5 seconds. To switch the display from mirror-image view to non-mirror-image view, press the button quickly. An LED indicator light changes color to signal when the monitor is on (green), when it's charging while the power is on (yellow), and when it's charging while the power is off (red). The light flashes when the unit is in the non-mirror-image setting so you know what perspective you've got on the display.


The included video-out cable plugs into the side of the monitor so that you can transfer images to a larger screen or a recording device.


The Swift Hitch SH01 monitor mounted to a dash

The lightweight, durable plastic unit has a contoured shape so that it is easy to hold in one hand. For dash mounting, two 7/8" hook-and-loop strips (similar to Velcro) with adhesive backing are included. Or you can use the Swift Hitch windshield mount kit (sold separately) to keep the monitor easily within view.


Wireless, Portable System

This portable, completely wireless system is simple to set up and convenient to use. It does not need to be hardwired to your vehicle, nor does it rely on your vehicle's battery to work. Instead, it uses radio frequency to transmit video from the camera to the monitor and it is powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. There's no permanent installation or drilling required, so the system can go anywhere you go - from the jobsite to the campsite, from your work truck to your SUV.


The Swift Hitch SH01 camera, monitor, and included charging cable

The included 12-volt DC cable lets you charge both units simultaneously. An AC-to-DC adapter (sold separately) can be used to charge the system from a 110-volt AC wall outlet.

Video Transcript for Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera System Demonstration

The Swift Hitch is a portable wireless camera system that provides a quick hitch for any trailer, camper, or snowplow. It comes with a magnetic camera which mounts to your tailgate. A simple on and off switch is located on both the camera and the hand held monitor. Once you get your Swift Hitch camera installed on the tailgate, take a moment to align your hitch ball on the view screen at the bottom towards the center. That way, it will give you maximum field of view to sneak up on the hitch ball. Once you get your camera straight and away, you can view your hitch ball backing up from the comfort of your vehicle, on the LCD screen to achieve an easy and simple hitch up every time. With the help of the camera, you can sneak up on the ball basically on the first try. Once you get pretty much cover on top of the ball, you can go ahead and start lowering your jack and get your trailer hooked up.

The 2.5 inch LCD screen provides clear color display with a 300 foot range of transmission. The night vision mode, which is controlled automatically by the camera, has a range of 15 feet.

The Swift Hitch comes with a weatherproof cover on the camera and a split adapter so you can charge both units at the same time using your cigarette lighter or 12 volt outlet.

SAVES ME MANY STEPS AND NO SCRAPED UP B UMPERS 599883

Bought the Swift Hitch Camera System because the price was very good. I have seen some other systems and they did not have the night vision or you needed to upload an app to use your smart phone to me was not that smart or the price was way too much for what we needed it for. It's works great! No more yelling back and forth with my wife to make sure that I am lined up right for the hitch. And it works great for when we get to the campsite. I just mount it on the bumper of my camper and back it right in on the site right where I want to put it. I have already showed it to a few camping friends who are going to get one too! 185218

I would like to say your product is great does just what I need. The company I work for pulls campers to natural gas well sites to act as mobile offices and sleeping quarters in remote areas.I do not have the time to get out of the truck 20 times to see if I'm lined up with a trailer to hook up. The night vision is great to because alot of times it is very dark on a site where the trailers are parked and I can go in the dead of night not worrying about how to hook up in the dark. Thank you very much for this product and a great customer service staff!!! 62637

I bought this for my husband so he could use it when hooking up the truck to our fifth-wheeler and we both love it! I love it because now he doesn't need me to guide him. He loves it because it works as described. The camera can be placed on any metal surface because of the magnet, and he can angle it whichever way he needs to. He can also use it when backing into camp sites. Originally he said he didn't want one, but I gave it to him for Christmas anyway. He's very happy that I did. The picture on the monitor is clear; we have not had any problems with signal strength or interference. Wireless is definitely convenient! 63373

Swift Hitch: Wow! It's amazing how one product can bring back the joy of boating! I have to push (front hitch) my boat into our backyard because the alley behind the house is very tight. This makes the hook-up so easy AND then I place it on the back of the trailer (now the front-most part) and use it to assist making the turn into the backyard. Could not do it without it!! Snap-On Towing Mirrors: Fit very nicely and secure. Add just the right amount of additional mirror range needed for backing up my pontoon!! Great product!! The best part of this sale was how super helpful the sales representative from etrailer was in helping me find a solution to my concerns!! THANKS VINCE!!! 167995

This is my second Swift Hitch. I not only use the system to hook up but also I am a sound engineer. I use the system to look under stage floors and such to discover how wiring may be done. This unit can see in the dark better than the naked eye. Great piece of gear. Well made and works. 62995


Comments

I still use the Swift Hitch as a valuable tool. The thing is just great for the purpose it was designed as well as many other tasks. The only negative I have is the receiver battery will drain down in about a week if left in the unit even if it is not turned on. I just take the battery out after each use. I now charge the battery every two months even if it is still working.I would recommend the unit and if lost I would replace it with another Swift Hitch.

Camera and screen work great. I use it use it for hitching up my camer and boat. And i've used for more then just my hitch. It has also been great to use on the back of our 31' camper, when I attach it to my bumper. It only takes a couple of times to get the hang of things. Screen is easy to see and camera has strong magnetic base, with a good field of view. Glad I got it and have recommended it to friends. 398973

It saves me from getting in and out of my truck when hooking my trailer but it takes getting used to because of the angle of the camera. So it makes it a little difficult to line up perfectly underneath the hitch. Also the camera and or screen picks up electrical interference, possibly from the ignition of the vehicle, so the screen isn't clear until you position the screen in a way where the interference seems to subside. So you have to wait a lot for the interference to lessen to see clearly to back up. It will scratch your paint when attaching and removing the camera but if you put a slim piece of paper under the mount like I do you can avoid the scratches. 485503

This was just what I needed. With my old boat being 14', I could come close to the ball and then move the trailer. But I bought a 19' center console boat that's too heavy to move. The Swift Hitch camera is ideal. I can now back up under the ball the first time every time. No more getting in and out of the car to see where I am. Its great! 132080

I researched many other cameras, and this one was the best - and the price at etrailer was lower than anywhere I could find. I was nervous hitching my trailer up before, but this made it a breeze - it's pretty much idiot-proof. Word of advice - don't leave the camera attached with just the magnet. My Denali doesn't have much metal to attach this to so the area I could find on my tailgate wasn't the best to attach this camera to - it may bounce off if you travel over bumps. Shipping was fast, and arrived before estimated delivery date. ALL of my future RV and travel trailer purchases will be through etrailer - what a great experience! 65688

Purchased this to replace a Master Lock backup camera in which I used maybe 4-5 times and the LCD screen on the receiver died after a couple of years. Expect to use the Swift Hitch within the next week or so however I have tested it. Seems to work as advertised. Another reviewer mentioned the field of view is too small and I agree. The Master Lock camera had a field of view of probably 25 feet. More importantly the image on the hand held receiver of the Swift Hitch is almost impossible to see in bright sun light. This is true even when sitting inside my truck and attempting to shield the monitor from sun light. I stood in my garage while the camera was on and still had difficulty seeing the image. Although I still plan to use the device, given the small field of view and extremely poor image quality in bright sun light (a issue I did not have with Master Lock), this product is over priced and received a low rating. 296900

Just recovering from a neck surgery with a very stiff neck. Swift Hitch portable camera system made it very easy for me to hook up horse trailer this weekend with few moves. However, my truck has blue tooth phone connection. May be this is a reason for the receiver monitor having lines, making it very difficult for me to see anything between cotton balls. I had to hold the monitor out of the window, finding a sweet spot to complete the hitching. It would be nice if charging could be done from 110V outlet. Driving around charging both bateries 2,5 hours ( as suggested ) was not fun. Over all I like this system, it helps. But a larger screen, cleaner-crisper picture and a longer depth of field would have been nicer to have. 62558

I like it. It was necessary to call the help number to get it working. It may seem simple now but there were no instructions telling me to hold the display button for 3-5 seconds to turn it on. 122049

Swift Hitch Wireless back up camera was ordered right from our camp site in Ocean City, MD based on camper recommendation. Rec'd at site within 3 days. Everything about unit is great except distance from truch hitch to RV ball/hitch NOT far enough to say a perfect unit. Cameras field of view is a little narrow but if one backs up slow, corection(s) can be made in time to get it right on first or second try. Saved my marriage.....don't need her help/yelling anymore! Unit does work great at night also. I hold small monitor in my hand as I am looking back. Well constructed and company representative very helpful on ordering. Great company/service and good back up camera. 141085

A co-worker and I purchased the Swift hitch together in late January 2013 because I thought it was a little pricey. We work for an agricultural business that deals with trucking of grain and fertilizer. We wanted a camera system to use when loading our trucks with grain. We needed a system that was portable, wireless, and all around simple. The swift hitch was the right choice. We use it almost every day. As with everything, there are of course pros and cons. Pros: Easy to operate, Night vision works spectacular, monitor fits in your pocket, rechargeable, magnet is a good idea, charge both units with one cord=smart thinking, multitude of uses. All around handy to have. Cons: magnet is no way near strong enough, screen is hard to see (its like a mirror), 300' range? yeah right maybe in an open field. realistically 50-75 ft, battery life could be a little longer, needs a low battery indicator. From using the swift hitch extensively I've made a few observations. Outside in 30 F temps battery life only lasted about an hour. When the battery does start to run down, the screen starts to get fuzzy and lines in it. I thought the camera was broke. Didn't realize the battery was going dead. Especially when the ad claims it last 3-4 hours and it had only been 1. This is why I feel there should be some kind of low battery indicator. The longest I have gotten the battery to last has been 2.5 hours. And that was starting with a full charge. Expect a 2 hour useable battery life. As mentioned above, the range is no where near 300'. I know in the description it says that obstructions will reduce the distance. I didn't think it would be that big of a reduction though. Even in an open field I would be skeptical that the swift hitch would even perform at 200' let alone 300'. The furthest I have tested it was close to 150'. I know it was this far because the camera was two semi truck lengths away. Our trucks are around 70' long and with a space in between of probably 10-15'. The camera had lines in it and was fuzzy. But I could still see what was on the screen. Also I have zip tied a much larger magnet onto the bottom of the camera to help hold it in place. Works great. I can hang it anywhere, anyway, and on things that vibrate or shake. The magnet is a good idea but needs to be stronger. Maybe some kind of clamp as an option would be a good idea too? Just a thought. I mentioned the screen was hard to see. Yeah I know its only a 2.5 inch screen. I'm not saying its to small. There is some type of glare that makes it look like your looking into a mirror. On sunny days its near impossible to see the screen. It does however work good enough where you can see whats going on. The night vision works great. I've only used it maybe 5 times and it was superb. A very ingenious feature. I like the monitor being able to fit in my pocket also. I can whip it out, check whatever it is I'm watching ,and put it away leaving my hands free to do whatever. Clever design. I've given this product 4 stars because its not perfect and there is room for improvement. I didn't feel like I was getting $200 worth. If these small things were corrected I would say 5 stars in a heart beat. I've used this product probably 100+ times. If not more. Its simple and effective but not cheap. Sure beats me getting in and out of my truck and climbing up and down off of my trailer 37 times each time I load my truck. I set it up when I'm trying to position my dump trailer to unload into a small pit. I put it on the rear of my trailer when I'm backing so I know when to stop and so I don't run into something that may be in my blind spot. When I hook my semi truck to my trailer I use it to line up my fifth wheel plate to the pin perfectly the first time every time. The possibilities are endless when it comes to uses. Anywhere you need an extra set of eyes, the swift hitch works good. I can load my truck with precision and not have to worry about falling off my trailer as I'm climbing up and down those 37 times. I've reduced that to 2 times. This product just makes life so much easier. Like another customer wrote, "should have bought one years ago". I couldn't agree more. 83733

I am hooking up trailers often, so I get a lot of use out of my Swift Hitch Alignment Camera & Monitor. I have purchased a couple of these outfits for my neighbors as well and they really like them. It works really great, no jumping in & out of my truck to see if I'm lined up, so it saves a lot of time. I definitely recommend the Swift Hitch Alignment Camera & Monitor to anyone who uses trailers. Thanks 597778

The pros: Has worked flawlessly since purchased. Very useful and made a nuisance chore connecting to my trailers quite easy once you visually gaged the depth of the hitch ball in relation to the trailer tongue a few times. Nice product. Good picture day or night. The cons: A little pricey. I'm thinking most people wouldn't shell out this kind of money. Camera magnet could be stronger but works. In a nutshell....good job and would recommend to my friends and have. 571415

After installing a tool box in my pickup bed, I could no longer see my goose neck hitch. It works perfect for that now and in 1-2 moves I am exactly where I need to be. It also is working for my bumper hookup and will soon use it on my tractor to help connect a hitch on my loader. It is becoming a VERY useful tool for us. 461005

Great. As others have said, charge both units first. Really comes in handy for many uses. I pull 10 ton goose neck and pintle. Camara works great. Metal barn does effect somewhat but still works. Not sure how long battery will last, good so far.

I bought the Swift Hitch to aid backing my boat trailer into my warehouse without neck strain. Unit worked well overall and has good quality housing material. Wireless camera magnetic base fits conveniently on boat gunnel next to cleat, and at end of trailer frame. Tested approx. 50ft between wireless camera and monitor, beyond this distance, picture starts to fade. Some picture flickering due to interference, and can be corrected by moving receiver and by turning off smart phone. Night vision feature works very well. 180985

This hitch aligner system is a big help for me. I use it to help me align the gooseneck hitch on my camper to the ball located in the bed of my pick-up truck. It is impossible for me to see the ball and the hitch from the drivers seat this system helps me connect the camper to the truck. 118323

I haven't used the camera to hitch up yer, but in playing with it, the product looks excellent with a clear picture. In addition to using it as a hitch camera, I'm going to feed it 12 volt power and use it in the rear window of my trailer as a rear view cam. Also will be useful for keeping am eye on the campsite with the night vision feature. 110343

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


  • Can the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 be Used to Monitor Horses Inside Trailer
  • 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...

  • Wireless Backup Camera for Hitch Alignment
  • We offer all sorts of camera systems including specialized ones made specifically for hitch alignment. This type can be selected on the linked page. We have items such as the low-cost wired Hopkins Smart Hitch camera # HM50002 that includes a 3-1/2-inch monitor as well as wireless systems that use your Smartphone as the display, such as the RVS Wifi Backup Camera System # RVS-83112-WIFI. RVS also offers a version with an included 3-1/2-inch monitor, item # RVS-83112. Each of these options...

  • Recommended Swift Hitch Alignment Camera with Night Vision and Monitor
  • To get the wireless camera similar to the # SH04 along with a monitor, you will want the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor - Night Vision - 4-Hour Camera Battery # 04928. This is the only separate monitor that will work with the Swift Hitch camera unless you use the smartphone or tablet app. The monitor is not currently available separately. You may also be interested in the Storage Case for the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System # PC02 which is a nice way to...

  • Having Trouble Lining Up 2014 Ford F-350 and Gooseneck Trailer
  • For a gooseneck hitch and trailer I think the best solution would be to use the Swift Hitch camera # 04928. You can mount this camera pretty much anywhere and turn it on when needed (it doesn't tap into the vehicle wiring). The base is magnetic so you could attach the camera to the gooseneck coupler to line up the truck and trailer perfectly.

  • Recommended Options For Better Fifth Wheel Hitching Visibility
  • I have a few possible solutions for you. The low-tech approach would use a mirror like part # KSC088. The mirror would stick to the outside of your rear window, and could be angled in such a way so that you can easily see how your hitch and king pin are lining up. A more high tech approach would use a camera like the # RA7710 from Rampage. The camera has a magnetic base that would allow it to mount in your truck bed. The camera would use your Android or iOS smart phone as a monitor....

  • 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...

  • Back Up Camera for Hooking Up Fifth Wheel Trailer on 2015 Ford F-250
  • For a camera to help hook up your fifth wheel trailer I suggest a wireless system, like the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor # 04928. With a wireless camera it won't need to stay mounted on your truck except when you're using it. If you prefer a hardwired option the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Trailer Tow Quick Connect Kit # RVS-770613-213.

  • How Well Does the Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera Work at Night
  • I actually owned a Hopkins Smart Hitch backup camera, # HM50002, for a little over a year and I never had any problems at night. The reverse lights on my vehicle at the time where at about the same level up from the ground as the camera and provided adequate light in the dark. Every vehicle is different though. For a camera system that does have lights for night vision I recommend the Shift Hitch # 04928. The great thing about this system is that it does not have to be permanently installed...

  • Adding Lights and Reflectors to Make Pro Series Trailer Hitch Cargo Carrier More Visible
  • You have a couple of light kit options for the Pro Series carrier # 63153. For regular incandescent lights you can use # 20174. And for the LED light version use # 98174LED. I have linked a couple of videos on these light kits for you. To add reflective strips you can use # RE418T. You will likely have to trim them to fit but they will definitely make the carrier more visible. You could use marker # DM35RS to attach to the basket so that you can see it in your mirrors. The pole is...

  • Backup Camera that Can Mount in Truck Bed Under Camper Shell
  • Our backup cameras were designed to be on the outside of a vehicle exposed to the weather so they'd easily handle being mounted on the inside of a truck camper shell. For that the Rear View Safety Backup Camera part # RVS-155W would be a great option. It's wireless so you wouldn't have to come up with a way to get the camera signal from the truck bed to the truck cab. It comes with a 5 inch monitor that normally attaches to a windshield. I attached a link to a review video for the kit for...

  • Will a Ball Mount and Ball Make the Alert Sound on Hopkins Rear View Camera with Backup Sensors
  • The alert will most likely sound with a ball mount that close to the sensors in the Hopkins Rear View Camera with Backup Sensors, # HM60195VA. You can adjust the sensors up a little but there is still a good chance it will sound the alert. The ball mount and ball should not have an adverse effect on the focus of the image. You could remove the ball mount before backing up so that the alert will not sound or try mounting the unit in an alternate location. What I recommend is the Swift...

  • Recommendations to Assist with Aligning a 5th Wheel Hitch and Trailer King Pin
  • The # KSC088 K-Source backup mirror would work for aligning your fifth-wheel hitch and king pin, but this mirror will only allow you to see a field up to 6' behind the mirror. If your truck has a long bed, you would not be able to see the king pin until you backed up enough to get it into the field of vision for the mirror. The Swift Hitch wireless backup camera # 04928 would work great for aligning your trailer and fifth-wheel hitch. You can mount the camera on any metal surface...

  • Backup Camera for Use with Eighteen Wheeler Trailers
  • We have a couple of options that might work out well for you. The Swift hitch line is very versatile and they have a long wireless transmission range (range is diminished with obstacles between the camera and monitor). For a single camera system we have # 04928 and the water resistant version is # SH02DIGITAL. And then there is a two camera system with relay antenna for more than 1 view using 1 monitor, # SH03D. All three of these systems have night vision cameras. The cameras can either...

  • Recommended Rear-View Camera Solution to Assist Hitching Gooseneck Trailer
  • Although many of the camera systems we offer might be modified or altered in some way that would allow the camera to mount to the inside of the rear window glass, none of them are designed to mount that way directly out of the box. My best recommendation for a camera-type solution would be the Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera System, available with a 4-hour battery, part # 04928 or a 10-hour battery, as part # SH02DIGITAL. Both systems are rechargeable and the cameras can be temporarily...

  • Recommend Backup Camera for Truck and 45 Ft Enclosed Trailer
  • I recommend going with a camera that has a longer range like the Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera with Night Vision, part # 04928. The Swift Hitch Camera has a transmission distance of up to 300 feet if there are no obstructions. Part # 04928 also has a night vision feature that will come in handy when backing up at night. The other great part about part # 04928 is that the monitor plugs into a 12 volt outlet in the cab of your truck and has a wireless signal.

  • Swift Hitch Camera Battery Replacement
  • According to my contacts at Swift Hitch, the battery in the camera portion of the Swift Hitch System # 04928 is replaceable. However this is not just a normal battery swap out, the battery in the camera is soldered in place. So for replacement you would have to remove the existing battery and solder the new one in place. If you do not feel comfortable with this, Swift Hitch will replace the battery for you if you will send them your camera. Once the 4 screws are removed you should...

  • What Back-Up Camera Can be Used with a 32 Foot Travel Trailer
  • At that trailer length, I recommend the Swift Hitch Camera, part # 04928. It will transmit up to 300 ft. with no obstructions. I would mount it towards the top of the trailer to get better signal transmission. The camera and monitor have built-in batteries and the kit includes a charger that will charge both from your cigarette lighter port.

  • Recommended Wirelss Backup Camera with Airstream Trailer
  • Aluminum trailers, like your Airstream can interfere with a wireless signal. What we have found to work best is to mount the camera towards one side and the signal is generally stronger when the monitor (with this system your phone) is on the same side of the truck. For a full time back up camera that uses a wireless signal I suggest the Rear View Safety WiFi Backup Camera System # RVS-020813. This camera system installs by splicing into the the reverse light circuit. This provides...

  • Which Back Up Camera Works Best for Hitch Alignment
  • You could go with something like the Swift Hitch Trailer Hitch Aligner Portable Wireless Camera System with Night Vision # 04928 which has more maneuverability and you can point it directly at your trailer ball. The down side is that this unit uses rechargeable batteries and sticks out considering its size and color.

  • Recommended Wireless Camera for Aluminum Trailer
  • I do have a solution for you, however there isn't a good way to permanently mount the Rampage Wireless Backup Camera # RA7710 to your trailer and since the trailer is aluminum you won't be able to utilize the magnetic base. A better option will be with the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera and Monitor # 04928. Like the Rampage System this camera does have a magnetic base but it also features pre-drilled holes that can be used to permanently mount the camera using a couple 1/8 inch screws or...

  • Backup Camera Systems with Night Vision to Hook Up to Trailer at Night
  • The Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera # HM50002 does not have night vision but I can tell you from experience that when I backed up the reverse lights of the vehicle provided adequate illumination for the camera and I could see well. Camera systems that have night vision or that have a light that can be turned on and off include the following: # RA7710 # 04928 # SH02Digital # SH03D I recommend the entry level Swift Hitch camera # 04928 because you will get great performance...

  • Battery in Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor System # 04928 Will Not Charge
  • Both the camera and the monitor in the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor System # 04928 have internal rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Both the camera and monitor units require an initial charge of 2 and 2-1/2 hours respectively. It is possible that your charging cable is damaged. We offer a replacement 12V charging cable # PC01 that can charge both the camera and monitor at the same time. If you have a circuit tester like # ALL640595 you can test your existing...

  • Backup Camera Recommendation to See Behind 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The Swift Hitch camera, # 04928, would work but you would want to mount it at the top rear of the 5th wheel trailer in order to receive and maintain a signal. The problem with that is you have to manually turn the camera on so having it up high would make doing so difficult. I recommend version # SH03D which is a 2 camera system but it comes with an antenna so that the signal will be stronger to the in-cab monitor. That way you can mount the camera in an easy to reach place and not worry...

  • Wireless Camera Recommendation for Better Vision Backing Up Boat and Blind Spot Vision
  • For a wireless camera to install at the back of your boat I would recommend the Swift Hitch part # 04928.

  • Can Rampage Backup Camera RA7710 be Pointed Straight Back and is there a Wide Angle Lens
  • We definitely need to get you something to make the parking process a lot easier on you and your wife! The Rampage camera # RA7710 would have to be placed on a level surface to point straight back. A metal bumper is a good option. It doesn't have a wide angle lens but if you are looking for a system that doesn't require a separate monitor then the Rampage camera is for you. Otherwise I like the Swift Hitch system # 04928. It is also wireless and also has a magnetic base but the camera...

  • Troubleshooting Swift Hitch Camera Where Reception Has Gotten Worse Over Time
  • The reception shouldn't be fading with time on the Swift Hitch which leads me to believe the TPMS you have could possibly be interfering. You could try disconnecting them to see if the signal changes, but either way moving the camera up higher should improve the reception so I would try that first?
