  • Recommended Second Camera For Wireless Rear View Safety Camera System
  • A second camera can come in a couple different forms I recommend for your system. The Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera - 130-Degree Viewing Angle, # RVS-DS1 is upgraded camera for the # RVS-2CAM system. However, the Rear View Safety Wireless Transmitter # RVS-DS can make any RVS wired camera function with the system. You should note this transmitter is not waterproof. For instance, the Rear View Safety Backup Camera - Surface Mount, # RVS-776 can be used with that transmitter...

  • Recommended Camera and Monitor System to Use with a 20 foot Trailer
  • A lot of it really just depends on what you are looking for in a camera. Some people just want one while they are backing up while others would like to use it for observation.

  • 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...

  • Availability of 3 Camera Backup System with Quad View Monitor
  • The Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Side Cameras # RVS-770616-2133 referenced in your question does feature 3 CCD cameras (2 side cameras and 1 backup camera) and a single color monitor. The included monitor will cycle through each camera feed separately but will not show you all the views at the same time. There is not a 3 camera system available that includes the quad monitor that you mentioned. In order to view all cameras at the same time, I recommend a 4 camera system...

  • 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...

  • Comparing Backup Cameras # RVS-155W and Furrion # FRC12TAPK-BL
  • Both the Furrion part # FRC12TAPK-BL and the RVS part # RVS-155W are fantastic options for back up cameras. Either are going to work well but there are a few differences. The monitor of the RVS is a bit bigger and is designed to mount to something below it permanently. The screen is 5 inches in size. The Furrion has a monitor size of 4.3 inches but is designed to mount to a windshield for more of a temporary mount. I'd go with whichever has the mounting/monitor style that you would...

  • Recommended Trailer Backup Camera for 2017 Forest River Rockwood Trailer For Smart Phone Monitor
  • The Furrion Digital Wireless Observation System # FOS43TASF is the system that is prewired to work with your trailer. The factory trailer wiring is only to the reverse function on your trailer according to the manufacturer, so you will need to rewire the trailer so your camera power comes from the running lights instead of the reverse light for constant viewing. Unfortunately this system requires a separate monitor and cannot use your smartphone or Ford Sync 3. For a system like...

  • Best Backup/Observation Camera System for a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty and 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I have the perfect option for you in the the Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera System part # RVS-83112-WIFI. The reason that the Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera System is the perfect option for you is because it can be used with either tablet, is battery powered so you can move it from the truck to the trailer, and it can be left on for use as an observation system. This is one of the only systems we have to my knowledge that meets all three of these requirements. The...

  • Recommended Camera System Upgrade Using Existing Sony Wiring on 1991 Holiday Rambler Imperial
  • The easiest way to tell if you need to upgrade your wiring is to disconnect your monitor and camera to check the connection points. You may be able to use your current wiring if you use an adapter like the Rear View Safety Splice Kit # RVS-SPK01. It is highly likely you have a 4 wire system and will not utilize the audio feature. I've attached a photo to assist. For a replacement I recommend the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System - Weatherproof Monitor # RVS-8106131 to replace...

  • Can the Rear View Safety Wireless Side Camera # RVS-775W Connect to iPad
  • The transmitter that comes with the Rear View Safety Wireless Side Camera # RVS-775W is actually a wireless transmitter that is used for connecting the camera to a Rear View Safety monitor like part # RVS-6131.

  • 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.

  • Backup Camera System Recommendation for 35 Foot Class A Motorhome
  • I have the perfect solution for fitting your 35 foot class A motorhome with a backup camera system. The Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Side Cameras, # RVS-770616N, will give you the visibility you need. I personally prefer the wired systems because you don't have to deal with any interference and have a reliable system when you need it. The 2-color CCD side cameras have 120 degree viewing angle and use 9 infrared lights per camera for 30' of infrared night vision . The heavy-duty...

  • Recommended Backup Camera Mount for 5th Wheel Tailgate on 2017 Chevy 2500
  • There isn't a specific 5th Wheel Tailgate so we do not have a specific backup camera that fits each model. My recommendation is the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with Lock # VGM-14-4000 for your 2017 Chevy 2500. Then I recommend the the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System - Mirror with Monitor - Flush Mount Backup Camera # RVS-772718 which will allow you to mount the camera wherever you want. If you determine you'd rather have a license plate mount, you...

  • Rear View Safety Camera Installation for Viewing Almost Directly Behind
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System - 5" Single Screen Display # RVS-155W is intended to work in the 90 Degree mount and will swivel up. It will not allow you to move it the full 180 degrees because the mount as well as the antenna will not allow it. The viewing angle will give you 130 degrees of view so you will be able to see behind you well without that 180 degree positioning. I think this camera will meet your needs to get close to the position you desire and give...
