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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Four Camera Wireless Camera System With One Monitor For Truck And Trailer
  • For a Wireless 4 Camera System, I recommend the Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System - 7" Quad View Display with Built-in DVR # RVS-4CAM. If you have any aluminum in your trailer system, it can cause interference to wireless connectivity so if you have an aluminum trailer, I recommend you go with a wired system. For a Wired 4 camera system, I recommend the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System - 4 Camera Setup - Quad View Monitor # RVS-062710. For a tractor trailer, I recommend...

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.

  • 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.

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...

  • Viewing Angle for Rear View Safety Wireless WiFi Backup Camera # RVS-020813
  • The viewing angle for the Rear View Safety WiFi Backup Camera # RVS-020813 is 130-degrees. Their system # RVS-83112-WIFI has a narrower 120-degree viewing angle. I contacted RVS and Furrion, another maker of similar camera systems, to find out about options that have the wide viewing angle you are looking for. Furrion does not have one but RVS does make a system with a 170-dgree viewing angle, their MV1 Camera system with included monitor # RVS-MV1619P.

  • Battery Life of Camera in Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera System RVS-83112
  • The camera in the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera System # RVS-83112 has an automatic 15-minute shut-off feature on the camera to conserve the power in the 9V battery that powers it. Battery life is 3 to 5 hours. The monitor part takes in 12V power from an outlet in the tow vehicle so it remains powered. There is a safety concern with having a camera system engaged at all times; it can become a distraction from your primary concern, which is the road in front of you.

  • 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...
