Expert Answers about Rear View Safety Inc

  • 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 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 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

This can be done with any of the Rear View Safety cameras, including the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Trailer Tow Quick Connect Kit - 2 Cameras, # RVS-770614-213. The way in which you wire the camera system will dictate how the camera functions for you.

  • Recommended Backup Camera System for Lance Camper on Dodge Ram
  • For your Dodge Ram and Lance Camper, I recommend taking a look at the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Trailer Tow Quick Connect Kit # RVS-770613-213. This is a really nice system that features a 7 inch TFT digital LCD color monitor and a color CCD backup camera with a 130-degree viewing angle. The really nice thing about this system for your particular application is that it includes a quick connect/disconnect kit. This will allow you to wire the monitor in your truck and the...

  • Do Side Cameras Come On with Turn Signals on Rear View Safety Backup Camera System RVS-770616N
  • Yes, you can install the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Side Cameras Item # RVS-770616N to have the side cameras come on when a turn signal is engaged. There are instructions that explain different ways the cameras can be activated and this is one of the methods explained. It is the method I recommend too so you don't have to worry about manually turning on the cameras while driving.

  • How Does Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera Attach to a Surface
  • The base of the camera in wireless backup camera # RVS-83112-WiFi is magnetic. So you would just place it on a metallic surface and it will stick there. For more permanent installation you would have to drill into the mounting surface to secure it with hardware.

  • 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...

  • Rear View Backup Camera Compatible With Ford Rear View Mirror Plugs
  • Unfortunately, there isn't a system compatible with the factory auto dimming mirror from Ford. You can replace the factory mirror, but the wiring will still require running wires and you will unfortunately lose the factory functionality in order to upgrade. The system I recommend is the Rear View Safety G-Series Backup Camera System - Auto Dimming, # RVS-776718-D. Although this doesn't plug into your factory system, you will still have the auto-dimming available to you.

  • Recommended Multi-Camera RV Observation System for Towing Travel Trailer
  • For a complete backup/observation camera system for towing your travel trailer you might consider the RVS Backup Camera System with Side Cameras, part # RVS-770616N. This setup includes two side cameras as well as a heavy-duty backup camera. The system has infrared night vision and includes all required cables and installation hardware. Perhaps best of all it includes a large 7-inch display instead of the often-tiny screens found on other systems. You can refer to the linked video to...

  • Can Backup Camera be Wired to Something Other Than Reverse Lights so it is Always on
  • You can wire a backup camera, like the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System # RVS-770614, to a different function so that it stays on all of the time. This is actually a common solution that even the manufacturers recommend for customers. If your tail lights turn on when you start the vehicle then running the wire to one of your tail lights for power is a very viable option. Running it to the brake light function is probably not the best solution as that means it will only receive...

  • Do WiFi Backup Camera's Require Internet Connection
  • Yes, a WiFi camera such as the Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera System part # RVS-83112-WIFI does not require access to the internet therefore will work out in the boonies where no internet connection is present. The transmitter built into the camera creates a WiFi network that will work anywhere. This technology is similar to Bluetooth in that a wireless signal is transmitted from one device to another without an internet connection I have attached a review video of the above...

Both systems come with a camera that mounts via magnet and they pair wirelessly to...

  • Recommended Camera For 2017 Ram 1500 Factory Reverse Camera System
  • It sounds like you are looking to add a second camera, so in order to do so you will need to add a Rear View Safety Multiplexer Box - 3 Channel # RVS-501N to switch between your cameras as I don't believe your system has multiple camera options. For a camera, I recommend the Rear View Safety Backup Camera for Pickup Trucks # RVS-TAILGATE. You will also need the Rear View Safety Camera Cable - 21' Long - Double Sided Female Connections # RVS-882. I am not familiar with the inputs so you...

  • 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...

  • 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 Camera to Use for Observation System When Towing with a Ford Explorer
  • The best camera system for your application is the Rear View Safety Wireless System # RVS-091406. The camera sends a wireless signal to the monitor which is powered by your 12V accessory outlet in your Ford Explorer. Wire the camera it to a reverse light circuit if you just want it as a backup camera. Otherwise if you want to use it as an observation system it would be better to wire it to your running light circuit. You can then turn the camera on and off by activating the headlights...

  • 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...

  • 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 cameras also hold an IP69K rating, the highest attainable when it comes to keeping out dirt and being waterproof....

  • Why Is Display Hard to See in Demo Video for RVS Wireless Backup Camera System # RVS-091407
  • The Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System # RVS-091407 that you referenced is designed to replace a rearview mirror on a vehicle so it has to be reflective to the point it could be used as a mirror when not active. The studio where we shot the video for this monitor is very bright. The interior of a vehicle would always be much dimmer than the conditions the video was shot in which means the display will be easier to see. There's a very bright white light above the studio unlike...

  • Best Place To Mount Backup Camera on Fifth Wheel RV
  • When mounting a wireless backup camera, it is best to mount it as far over on the driver's side as possible. Because the wireless signal has to travel through the camper and the truck, mounting it on the driver's side works to provide the signal with a clearer path to the receiver in the cab of the truck. The strongest place to mount the camera is on the bumper due to the all-metal structure. However, mounting it higher off the ground will provide you with a better vantage point when...
