Expert Answers about Swift Hitch

  • Which Back Up Camera Works Best for Hitch Alignment
  • You could go with something like the Swift Hitch Trailer Hitch Aligner Portable Wireless Camera System with Night Vision # 04928 which has more maneuverability and you can point it directly at your trailer ball. The down side is that this unit uses rechargeable batteries and sticks out considering its size and color. I recommend the Master Lock Wireless Backup Camera and Hitch Alignment System # 4843DAT. It has easy set up, no wire splicing, and an adjustable camera. The camera portion...

  • Recommend Backup Camera for Truck and 45 Ft Enclosed Trailer
  • I recommend going with a camera that has a longer range like the Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera with Night Vision, part # 04928. The Swift Hitch Camera has a transmission distance of up to 300 feet if there are no obstructions. Part # 04928 also has a night vision feature that will come in handy when backing up at night. The other great part about part # 04928 is that the monitor plugs into a 12 volt outlet in the cab of your truck and has a wireless signal.

  • Available Types of Backup Camera Systems for Use on Leer Truck Cap
  • We offer several different backup camera systems that you can see on the linked page. These include both wired and wireless types, such as the Swift Hitch # 04928 that even includes night-vision capability. At this time we have no camera systems designed expressly for the Leer caps' third brake light, or CHMSL (center high-mount stop light), but we do have a universal-fit system from Rear View Safety, part # RVS-917619P. This and other application-specific cameras are shown on the link. ...

  • Recommended Back-Up Camera for Backing 5th Wheel Camper
  • I'd recommend the Swift Hitch Portable camera system, part # SH02DIGITAL. The system is truly wireless, and has night vision capability, out to about a 15 foot distance from the camera, which would be very useful when parking the fifth wheel at night. The camera has both a magnetic and a suction cup mount, and can also be attached to your pin box to make lining up the king pin and the funnel of your fifth wheel hitch during hitching much easier. Over the years, we've found that mounting...

  • Recommended Wireless Backup Camera System For Aluminum 5Th Wheel Trailer

This system features night vision and is perfect for fifth wheel trailers. It has digital technology so you do not get any interference from any devices that use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The system has a hand-held monitor, or you can get a Windshield Mount And Vent Holder, part # PC03, that is sold separately. This system...

  • Wireless Backup Camera Recommendation that is Android Compatible
  • We have a wireless backup camera that will transmit to an Android device, but it is not the Swift Hitch part # SH02-C that you referenced. Instead you would want the Rampage camera part # RA7710 which is Android compatible and has a range of 200 feet as reported by our customers who have it.

  • What is the Life Expectancy of the Battery in the Swift Hitch Wireless Backup Camera 04928
  • I checked into this with the manufacturer, and the battery in the camera portion of the # 04298 wireless backup camera system is actually replaceable. The battery is sealed inside the camera, but can be accessed. The new battery would need to be soldered into the assembly, so it is a bit more tricky to replace than the battery in the monitor but it is doable. When I asked about the lifespan of the battery, my contact at Swift Hitch said that although they have on occasion had to replace...

  • Can Swift Hitch Camera # 04928 Be Used for a Gooseneck Trailer
  • The Swift Hitch Camera, part # 04928 will work with any type of trailer.

  • Backup Camera Recommendation to See Behind 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The Swift Hitch camera, # 04928, would work but you would want to mount it at the top rear of the 5th wheel trailer in order to receive and maintain a signal. The problem with that is you have to manually turn the camera on so having it up high would make doing so difficult. I recommend version # SH03D which is a 2 camera system but it comes with an antenna so that the signal will be stronger to the in-cab monitor. That way you can mount the camera in an easy to reach place and not worry...

  • Recommended Swift Hitch Alignment Camera with Night Vision and Monitor
  • To get the wireless camera similar to the # SH04 along with a monitor, you will want the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor - Night Vision - 4-Hour Camera Battery # 04928. This is the only separate monitor that will work with the Swift Hitch camera unless you use the smartphone or tablet app. The monitor is not currently available separately.

  • Swift Hitch Camera Battery Replacement
  • According to my contacts at Swift Hitch, the battery in the camera portion of the Swift Hitch System # 04928 is replaceable. However this is not just a normal battery swap out, the battery in the camera is soldered in place. So for replacement you would have to remove the existing battery and solder the new one in place. If you do not feel comfortable with this, Swift Hitch will replace the battery for you if you will send them your camera. Once the 4 screws are removed you should...

  • Can the Swift Hitch Backup Camera be Tilted straight back for Installation at the Rear of an RV
  • The Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera, # 04928, cannot be oriented straight out. The camera mount will not allow the camera portion to rotate to a 90 degree angle to the base. You could position the camera at a 90 degree angle to the back of the RV, if you fabricated an angled mount that would attach to the back of the RV and then attach the camera to the angled mount. I produced a short video showing the range of adjustment that the camera has. The other issue I see with this camera...

  • Using 2 Backup Cameras at the Same Time with One Monitor

  • Hitch Alignment Camera To Make Hooking up Fifth Wheel Easier
  • There is a camera you can add to your 2017 Ram 2500 that will make the hook-up process of your fifth wheel a simpler process. The Swift Hitch Wi-Fi Camera # SH04 will link to your iPhone so there is no need for a monitor.

  • Can the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera be Used at the Back of an RV as a Backup Camera
  • Yes, the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System, # SH02DIGITAL, can be used at the rear of your RV as you have described. We had a chance to test this camera out at a product demonstration and it works great. The field of view is a 55 degree angle extending out from where the camera is mounted so the farther back the wider the view gets. This camera would work great during the day and at night it will provide backup vision up to 15 feet behind the RV. I would suggest that you use screws...

  • What is Video-Out Connection For On the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System # SH02
  • I spoke with my contact at Swift Hitch and they said the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System, part # SH02DIGITAL, that comes with the video-out connection is for somebody that would like to plug in a cable to view the camera image on a larger screen. The video-out jack is a standard video cable size and would need to be ran to the video-in jack of the larger monitor you will be using for viewing. I do not carry any cables that would work, but they said a standard video cable can be purchased...

  • Wireless Back Up Camera Recommendation for a Tractor and Baler Driving on Public Roads
  • The Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System # 04928 that you referenced would be perfect for what you are trying to do. You could mount the camera on the top of your baler and then use the handheld monitor to see everything behind you while you are making left turns. The magnetic mount bracket for the camera would make for easy installation on your baler. Or, you could use the suction cup mount # PM01. I attached a review video for this camera for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Backup Camera For 2012 Jeep Liberty And 2011 Ford Escape
  • I am not familiar with the OEM neck you mentioned. If you mean the trailer hitch shank, we do not have camera designed to fit a trailer hitch shank on a vehicle, but I will make some recommendations for you. If you want a backup camera that can be used on both vehicles I recommend the Swift hitch Digital Wireless Camera And Monitor, part # SH02Digital. Since there is no permanent wiring or installation, this camera can be moved from trailer to trailer, or vehicle to vehicle. This system...

  • Comparing Swift Hitch and Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Backup Cameras
  • The difference between the Swift Hitch camera system # SH02DIGITAL and SH02 is the transmission signal. The SH02DIGITAL sends a digital signal so as to avoid any interference with other wireless devices including Bluetooth. Interference is a common problem with many wireless systems. The digital version solves that issue. There is an AC to DC adapter that you can use with these camera systems, # PP01. Another option is the Rampage wireless camera # RA7710. It transmits via WIFI to...

  • Backup Camera Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Camper In Bed
  • You could use a magnetic mount camera such as # RVS-83112 placed on the hitch or ball mount if you wanted to. Otherwise you could use a license plate frame style camera such as # HM60195VA. A magnetic style is great if you have more than one vehicle you want to use it on. The license plate camera has the benefit of being a hardwire installation instead of wireless so there is little to no chance of interference.

  • Wireless Backup Camera for Use on the Back on a 20 Foot Airstream Travel Trailer
  • For a backup camera you can use at the back of your trailer I recommend the digital version of the Swift Hitch camera # SH02Digital. The digital signal will not suffer from the same possible interference issues that can affect other wireless systems. The camera has a 300 foot range but you will to put as few obstructions between the antenna on the camera and the monitor. Mounting the camera up high on your trailer will help with that. You will also be able to see more of what is around...

  • Is the Swift Hitch Trailer Hitch Aligner Portable Wireless Camera System Waterproof
  • The camera in the Swift Hitch, # 04928, is weather resistant but the camera is not completely sealed so it cannot be considered waterproof. For something to be considered waterproof it would have to be able to be submerged under water for a certain amount of time and still function. For rainy weather, though, the camera will work but I do recommend that once you are done using it, place the camera where it is out of the rain. I have included a couple of videos of this system for you.

  • Troubleshooting Swift Hitch Portable Camera # SH02 That Wont Hold a Charge, Less than Year Old
  • Since your Swift Hitch Portable Water Resistant Wireless Camera System # SH02-C is less than a year old and the camera has a 1 year warranty the best recommendation I could make for you would be to contact the dealer you bought this from and see about having the battery replaced. Otherwise I would recommend you replace the battery with the part # PB06.

  • What is the Best Camera Position for the Swift Hitch Wireless Backup Camera and Hitch Aligner
  • Generally speaking, if you position the camera so that on the top of the monitor screen you can see the receiver, that would be a good place to have it. That way, you will can quickly determine where the hitch is relative to the image on the screen and still have plenty of space on the screen for the area behind the vehicle. If you have to have the camera very close to the receiver, try angling it out so that you just catch the edge of the receiver or the ball on a ball mount on the...
