How to Install the Furrion Vision S Wireless RV Backup Camera on a 2022 Keystone Passport SL Travel


Hey guys, Kevin here with etrailer. And today I'm gonna be showing you how to install the Furrion Vision S RV backup camera here on our 2022 Keystone Passport SL Series travel trailer. So a lot of RVers have a very tough time trying to back into any tight space, or just knowing when to stop in general. Also, backing up your camper with your significant other can cause a lot of issues. So, here is where Furrion is going to take that away with our backup camera system. This is going to easily allow you to see exactly what you're backing into, making sure that you don't end up smacking the back of your trailer, which you spend a ton of money on into anything else, or maybe backing into a tree.

And it's gonna help you get nice and tight inside of your parking spot. So on the side of your monitor you're gonna see some buttons. You have the up and down your menu button. Your parking line button, which you can flip on and off, and then we have our power button. So when we hit our menu button, we can go down to our setup or hit our power button to select, then you can go through all of these settings whether you need to change how your camera view looks you can kind of go around.

We're actually gonna flip it so that you can actually see correctly just because it kinda had our image flip flopped. You can change the volume. So with your camera system, it actually is going to pick up sounds around you and I'm turning it up right now. So you can kinda hear it. The volume turned up.

Now you can kind get a good display of exactly what you're gonna be able to hear. If I was helping our neighbor today back in his camper and he needed to watch out for anything, he could easily hear me through the monitor instead of me having to shout and scream and try and hope that he hears me. Which can be a pretty stressful Now we'll turn that back down. There's also an auto dim feature which you can have on or off depending on your specific wants. Motion detection, so if you had this set up where you wanted to power on the camera anytime that there was motion around you, you could also have that as well.

The biggest thing here is really gonna be your volume. That way you can hear anybody out there maybe you need a little bit more help backing in, than what the camera can provide. So we can go back, there's also your picture settings. You click on that. You can change your brightness, your contrast and your color. That's gonna help out. We've actually turned our brightness up a bit, just so that it looks a little bit nicer on the camera for ya so you can really see the picture. But let's go ahead and we will drive around a little bit and give you guys a good example of how this system is going to work. I've got my little cart there with some of my tools on it. So, let me get us real close to that, make it nice and easy. So this is what you can kinda expect whenever you're trying to back into your parking space or your driveway, or maybe the storage lot. One thing I do recommend if you have a very, very tight space to get into one of the other Furrion systems that comes with the five inch monitor or the seven inch monitor those are gonna give you the ability to also add on the side mount cameras which are gonna give you a little bit better overview 'cause you'll also see what's alongside of you. You don't have to worry about accidentally scraping into the side of another camper, if you pull into a storage lot, or even when you're up on the road, it's gonna help you because anytime you turn your turn signal on it's gonna switch to that specific view and allow you to easily merge over. Because when you're hauling with these giant trailers you're gonna have pretty big blind spot. Whereas this can just completely show you what's around you without having to really look around or just take a chance and hope that you don't smack into anybody. So here's our button right here, a little black rubber piece that I was mentioning earlier. That's where you we're gonna have to press in and hold if you want to pair your camera. Another thing right here with the camera while we're back here is just that you can easily just move this up or down depending on what you need for your camper. The antenna is the same for your camera as it is for your monitor. Furrion has only made one type of antenna. It simply just twists on. I'm not gonna take it off right now just because I wanna make sure that my camera and my monitor still sync together. But it literally just screws on and then you can move the tip of the antenna however you need to. I've seen a few campers where they've had a light or something else kinda in the way, or maybe they have an awning or something hanging off the back where they've had to kinda move the antenna a certain way. So if you really need to it's pretty versatile with how it goes. So the eight bulbs that you see right here are gonna be your night vision sensors. Those are gonna help you out when it's dark. That way you can see and back into your camper spot back into your driveway, whatever you need to while you're in the dark, that way you're not having to just rely on your reverse lights, or your running lights on your camper. In our case, our running lights really are not gonna give us any kind of brightness at all. So this camera's really gonna come in handy in helping us back up in the dark. So, our housing for our camera is completely waterproof. That's gonna really help out with preventing any leakage into the lens. Answering questions here on our site, I've seen quite a bit of some other brands where people are having issues with the lens getting all fogged over or water droplets inside of it. So that's not something that you're gonna have to see with this camera at all. Another added safety feature here is that the housing itself comes with this rubber gasket that goes along it and that's gonna do a really good job at keeping the water out. And with this specific camera, the wiring that goes from our camera over into our trailer wiring is also all enclosed so that you don't have to worry about any water getting into it and ruining anything. As far as installation goes it is going to vary trailer to trailer. I've had some where it is very, very easy. There's plenty of room in the wall. The wiring's all right there on this one in particular, we we're tying into our running light and there was a stud there. And I had to kinda work around it a little bit. It took a little bit longer than it normally does but overall it was still very simple. All you're going to do is just simply tie into either your running light circuit, or your reverse light circuit. So you're really only gonna need a few tools. So, let me show you how I did that. So there's two main ways to install your Furrion Vision S camera. One being tying into your reverse lights, and the second being tying into your running lights. Here on our Passport today, all we have is our running lights. So that's what we are going to be tying into. And overall it's the much more preferred method just because then you can power your camera on anytime you want, instead of only having your camera view whenever you're in reverse. So to begin our installation, we're gonna go ahead and start removing the cover off of our light here. Most of the time, those will just pop out this one kinda twist off. Go ahead and take up screws out. And we can start peeling back our light. As you can see, there's a little bit of caulk and some other kinda ceiling on here just to kinda keep it water tight, but we're gonna go ahead and pull out our wire as much as we can. So, I pulled out our wiring just a bit just so that we can get into that and tie in our wiring for our camera. But up under here, it seems that we have a metal stud running from side to side with the bottom of it being right here. So to actually mount our camera, we're gonna have to put it down a little bit lower and we're going to have to drill into the bottom of that, just so that we can run our wiring up and connect it into our running light wires. So I was wanting to come through the top and try and drill into this stud just so that we had a way for our wires to meet up with our actual running light wires. But I'm not really liking how it's going drilling down. So what I'm gonna go ahead and do is I'm gonna mark out our spot for our camera using the gasket. We're gonna have it placed just under, and then the center hole right here is where your wiring's gonna go through. So I'm gonna go ahead and hit that with a punch, and then I'ma drill it out, and then we can just shoot our drill bit up. And that's gonna kinda hit more into the back corner of our stud here so that it's not so close to our wiring 'cause I don't wanna go into that and accidentally cut it at all or damage it. Now they have my hole marked, I can go ahead and usually drill it. I'll widen that up. And I'm not really trying to go too far in here. We don't wanna end up poking through on the other side. I'ma go ahead and use a little bit bigger of a bit. Seems like all we got right now is just some Styrofoam insulation on the back of the wall here. So we're not gonna be able to really see unless we widen this up more. So I widen up our hole just a little bit bigger using a hole saw that way we can kinda get a better angle 'cause we're gonna be drilling up. I don't want to end up poking in through the wall. I wanna make sure that I'm getting into this stud right here. So now we're gonna go ahead and shoot our drill up into there. Be sure to take your time. You don't wanna end up poking through this isn't that stick of a wall. So I didn't really like how I was skipping with our drill bit. So I'm gonna go ahead, I'm gonna just push a hole punch through. I kinda already did a little bit of a test and I poked right through pretty easily. So we're just gonna do that again. I've got a bigger hole punch this time. I'm gonna try and get it more centered so that we have an easier time trying to run our wiring through. And I've got a little bit some burs kinda poking up through that hole. So I'm just gonna take some needle nose pliers and we're gonna break those off. We don't wanna any of that scratching up our wiring. So as you can see, we have quite a bit of cable for our wiring here. Obviously with how tight this is, we're not really able to fit all of it in there. So I'm gonna go ahead and I'm gonna cut this down just a bit. Snip it right here, stick that off to the side. Inside of our casing we have our red and our black wire. I'm gonna go ahead and strip back our black casing here so I can get down into that. Some cutting off our little connectors that we had on here before, we're gonna stick all of these into a butt connector with our wiring for our camera now. And actually before I do that, we'll go ahead and we're gonna push our wiring up in here. You don't wanna start making our connections and then not be able to get it through just because this little piece right here is kinda big not really gonna go through a little hole that we made. And I've kinda twisted up and folded over our black and our red wire. Just to make it a little bit thicker. We can go ahead and start putting our connections together. So I've got our black in with our neutral wires here. We're gonna go ahead and crimp those down with our butt connector. And then on the other side I have our ground coming from our light. Go ahead, crimp that down as well. And since this is more of the exterior of the camper, we're using heat shrink. I'm gonna go ahead and shrink that down now. I'm gonna do the same thing with our power. Go ahead and break this off, get our wires loose, and connect them with the butt connector. So with our connections made, I'm gonna go ahead and test the power. I've got our running lights on. You can see our lights working now. I wanna also test our camera. I don't wanna go ahead and put all this in there and then realize we have an issue. So we'll go ahead, put that in. And as you can see, we have our blue light on showing that we are getting power to our camera. So now our next step is gonna be tucking all of our wiring up into the wall again and then mounting our camera. So I'ma go ahead and spray in some gasket maker right here, just to kinda help keep us from having any leaks. We don't want to any water getting in and ruining our job that we just did here. Can go real lightly too. We don't need to overdo it. Also while you're pushing this into place make sure that your wiring's still working. Sometimes, especially with tight holes like this it can kinda become an issue where a wire gets pinched. It's always best. Like right now I have the running light still on. I can see with both my camera and my running light that we're still good to go. Slowly push this back in just 'cause it's so tight getting those wires in there. All right, so now we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna push our connector that's on our camera through our gasket. Does wanna fight you quite a bit. You don't wanna pull on the little prong right here, you can end up pulling that right out of the wire. So wait till you have more of the black plastic here to kinda grab onto. And now with that in place I've kinda wound up the extra wire and the hole that we made here just to have everything sit nice, and go ahead, attach our cable again and get it right in place, how we need it to. So with our other part of our camera connected it's just a little bit too long to sit inside the hole that we have here. We just don't have the space that we really need. So, I'm gonna go ahead. I am going to kinda cut out our thing a little bit more on our gasket here just so I can push this through, 'cause there's a little bit of space in the actual housing for your camera. So, if you have to, I really try not to just because I don't wanna ruin my gasket at all but in this case, this is all we can really do. So we're gonna force that through. And you wanna make sure you're forcing it through the backside. It'll be completely flat. The front side's gonna have indent for the camera to sit in. And we can push that through really only make as much of a slid as you need, just to get that through. You don't wanna go anymore and end up tearing it or having a bigger hole to try and kinda waterproof. There we go. And with it like that now I can go ahead and just hide that in our housing like I said, all right. Then we can kind of center that. I'm gonna have it centered just under the light. I'm gonna leave just a little bit of extra room because I am gonna go back with the gasket maker and just do a nice line right over the top of our camera. I wanna make sure I take every precaution that I can to prevent any water damage. To mount your camera you gonna need four screws. It is not going to come with any mounting hardware just because Furrion does not know exactly what material you're gonna be screwing into. So I'm taking four self-tapping screws that I have from another job that have black heads on. Just so it'll match. I go ahead and screw those in. I'm going nice and slow. I don't wanna go too hard 'cause this is just a plastic housing for the mount so you can end up cracking it. And like I said, there'll be two up top and two below. So now we can go ahead. I'ma take my gasket maker and I'm just gonna run that along the top. So like I said, we're gonna go ahead and take some gasket maker and put that over the top as well. This gasket that comes with it is gonna do a pretty good job at keeping the water out, but we wanna make sure I don't wanna have to come back and replace any wiring or mess with anything else just 'cause we're getting water in. It is a little hard just under our light here just 'cause it's so close. I'ma get my finger in there and kinda push it down. Now with my gasket maker over the top of our camera here, I'm gonna go ahead and pop on my cover for my running light and we can go ahead and test our camera. So your camera system's gonna come with your monitor, it's gonna come with a little adjustable mount for you that you can just pop right in just like that. And then you can kinda move it around, 'cause it's on a ball mount and this is just gonna suction up to your window for our purposes today. I'm just gonna stick it right here, and we'll push that little lever down to suction it on to our screen just so that you guys can see it. And then we have our power cord. So on the back of your camera you're going to see a little port you can plug into and then it's just gonna be powered with a 12 volt outlet. In our case today, our camera was already paired the second that we powered it up. Sometimes this is not the case, so what you'll need to do is go back to your camera and you're gonna click this little button that's on the actual bottom of the camera. It's just a little black rubber piece. You will have to press it in kind of hard. Furrion has stated that sometimes it is a little bit harder to push it in, but once you push it in you're gonna hold it in for about three seconds. And that's gonna send the camera into pairing mode on your 4.3 inch monitor. You won't have a touchscreen. You have to actually use the buttons. So what we're gonna do is hit that middle button there with the three slashes. That's gonna bring us to our menu. As you can see, we're starting off pairing. We can click that again, click our power button actually. And it's showing that it's looking for our camera. This is probably going to fail just 'cause I'm not back there right now touching the pair button but it may pop up. Well, I think that does it for today's installation of our Furrion Vision S RV backup camera system here on our 2022 Keystone Passport SL Series travel trailer. My name's Kevin.
