Expert Answers about Rear View Safety Inc

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Wireless Backup Camera for 2017 Winnebago Micro Minnie

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...

  • 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.

  • 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 Replacement Camera for Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System - 130-Degree Viewing Angle, # RVS-257CW is the exact same camera as comes with the # RVS-2CAM. 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What Back-Up Cameras are Available for a 2017 Wildwood Forest River Travel Trailer?

This is a wired three-camera system; the two side cameras have 120 degree vision and the back-up camera has 130 degree vision.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Backup Camera System Options for Powered Wheelchair
  • We actually have a few options that are very viable options for you to use to see behind your powered wheelchair so that you can safely navigate around your grandchildren.

  • Back Up Camera Recommendation for Rear of Motorhome
  • The Rear View Safety System part # RVS-770617N that you referenced is a great choice for a back up camera for a travel trailer if you are looking for a hardwired/permanent solution. Realistically though since it would be hard to wire it from a long trailer to a tow vehicle a better solution would be a wireless setup. The # RVS-155W would be a much easier to install and use solution. The signal strength on this setup is great for preventing interference and the lights on the camera allow...

  • Recommended Wireless Backup Camera Continuously Connected
  • Certain systems will work better than others under continuous use. Some cameras may fail if used all the time and most battery systems will overheat and shut down if not fail. I recommend the Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System - 5" Single Screen Display # RVS-155W which can have the power wired into your running lights for continual use. This comes with a monitor that will work well up to 70 feet. An alternative is to use the Rear View Safety WiFi Backup Camera System...

  • 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...
