Expert Answers about Rear View Safety Inc

  • Comparing the Rear View Safety Wifi Camera and Furrion Wireless Camera Options
  • Both the Rear View Safety, parts # RVS-020813 and # RVS-020770, and the Furrion systems, parts # FRC12TA-BL and # FOS48TA-BL, are great options when it comes to adding a camera system to your towing setup. The terms "Backup" and "Observation" are relative to what you want it to do. If you only want the camera to work as a backup camera then you will need to wire it so that it receives power from the reverse lights which are only active when in reverse. For an observation system you will...

  • Recommended Wirelss Backup Camera with Airstream Trailer
  • For a full time back up camera that uses a wireless 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 power to the camera. If your trailer does not have reverse lights you will have to wire into a circuit to provide power. The wireless camera then connects via its provided WiFi signal to your iOS or Android smart phone or tablet. You will need to download the free GoVue...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Wireless Backup Camera for 2017 Winnebago Micro Minnie
  • For a great backup camera system to use when towing your 2017 Winnebago Micro Minnie, I recommend the Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System # RVS-2CAM. This is a wireless system with a large and clear 7 inch LCD color display that features distance grid lines that can be turned off and on for precision and peace of mind when backing up. The screen has a simple cigarette lighter style plug that will make it easy to plug in whenever you tow your trailer. The backup camera has...

  • Backup Camera Options for a 2018 Ford F-150 Towing an RV
  • I do have some options for you to add a backup camera to your towing setup, but we do not have anything that will tie in directly to the camera system on your 2018 Ford F-150. The best option would be for you to use the Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System # RVS-4CAM which is wireless and comes with 1 backup camera. I recommend this option because you can add up to 3 more cameras and look at them in a "quad view" on the included 7" monitor. You can add additional cameras with...

  • Wireless Backup Camera that is Android Compatible and Waterproof
  • We have a few wireless cameras that can display on an Android device. First we have Rampage Wireless Backup Camera for Smartphone or Tablet - iOS or Android Item # RA7710. But this camera was not designed to be waterproof or resistant so it doesn't have an IP rating. Next we have Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera System - Wireless Item # RVS-83112-WIFI. Unlike the above camera this one carries an IP68 rating which means it is dust tight and it is waterproof up to 3 meters of...

  • Recommended Rear View Camera for Monitoring Boat While Double Towing
  • To keep an eye on your boat while you are double towing, I recommend the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera, # RVS-83112, which uses a 9-volt battery to power the camera, and a monitor which plugs into the lighter outlet. The camera is entirely waterproof and the unit has a transmission range of 70 feet. There is also a version which allows you to connect via WIFI, the # RVS-83112-WIFI, so you can view the camera's image on your smartphone or tablet. The camera uses a rechargeable...

  • Backup Camera of Rear View Safety Backup Camera System
  • You would be able to put a plug at the end of the power cord to the backup camera on the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System # RVS-770613 if you would like. There is nothing specifically made to do this however, and you should be able to disconnect your trailer and unplug the camera without needing to put a plug on the end of any cables as they will be protected from the elements while in your trailer.

  • Availability of Rearview Mirror Backup Monitor with OnStar Capability
  • I recommend taking a look at the Rear View Safety G-Series Backup Camera System # RVS-776718-DOS. This is a really nice backup camera system that will replace the existing rear view mirror in your vehicle. The mirror on this system does have built-in OnStar capability, allowing you to maintain this feature with the monitor installed. It features a bright, 4.3 inch color TFT digital display and a night vision backup camera. All of the wires, connectors and mounts are included. I have...

  • 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...

  • What Back-Up Cameras are Available for a 2017 Wildwood Forest River Travel Trailer?
  • A back-up camera is a really good idea for a travel trailer, and you have a couple options to choose from. Our most popular system, and the one I recommend, is the Backup Camera System with Side Cameras and Quick Connect Kit, # RVS-770616-2133. This is a wired three-camera system; the two side cameras have 120 degree vision and the back-up camera has 130 degree vision.

  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Camera part # RVS-155W would be an excellent option for you as it has a 70 foot interference free range and 18 LED diodes for night vision as well. It also has a 130 degree viewing angle as well. This would be great for seeing behind your RV.

  • 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...

  • Third Brake Light Backup Camera for a 2000 Ford Excursion
  • Rear View Safety Third Brake Light with Camera # RVS-915 is designed specifically for Jason truck caps (camper shells, toppers) and is not a confirmed fit for a 2000 Ford Excursion. There isn't a custom fit option for your Excursion but we do have Rear View Safety Third Brake Light with Camera # RVS-917619P which is a surface mounted universal application that includes a monitor. Or use # RVS-917 with your existing Infotainment system by using adapter # RVS-RCA5 which has RCA style connectors. I...

  • Recommended Backup Camera For Custom Built 5th Wheel Tailgate
  • For your 5th Wheel Tailgate build, I recommend the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Flush Mount Camera # RVS-7707721 or the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System - Mirror with Monitor # RVS-772718 with this same camera. This is one of the more rare flush mounted cameras that will allow you to run the wires through the tailgate to give you a really clean look. You can mount the camera inside the steel frame or to the outside. The outside lens diameter of the camera is 1.15...

  • Purpose of Wire on Back of Camera of Rear View Safety WiFi Backup Camera System RVS-83112-WiFi

  • 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.

  • Quick Disconnect for the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System
  • The Rear View Safety Backup Camera System part # RVS-778718N has two input ports, AV1 and AV2. Any input hooked up to the AV1 port will continuously show that feed on the rear view monitor. Any input attached to the AV2 port will only show the feed when the vehicle is in reverse. Therefore, yes you can hook two cameras up to this system, but only 1 will be able to be shown at a time. For an additional camera you will want to use part # RVS-778. Since you will be installing a camera on...

  • Can Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera # RVS-83112-WIFI be Left on While Travelling
  • The Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera # RVS-83112-WIFI can be permanently mounted to the bumper of your vehicle which would mean that it could be left on while travelling if needed. The magnet of the camera is pretty strong but if you were wanting to travel for a long distance I wouldn't leave it on unless you find a spot for it where it is out of the wind and feels very solid.
