We have the Furion Observation Camera. Pre-wired pigtail plug in. Easy to mount and works great. Have had a few trips with it now, and no problems. Definitely recommend.

My FR FSX 197BH is prewired for the camera. Is it as simple as plug and play?

Our Grey Wolf came prewired, and yes, it was as easy as plug and play. On my trailer you had to have the TV lights on for the camera to work. I also added a ferrite choke to the camera power line before installing, but that's optional.

Furrion observation camera

We added the camera to our Rockwood mini-lite 1905. The trailer was pre-wired for it. Before installing it, I saw a you tube video that showed installing EMF chokes on the power cables at the camera and at the screen in the tow vehicle. We found them on Amazon (of course) and the camera has worked flawlessly on our trips. We have driven with it on for hours and no problems.

Just an idea. Hope it helps.

^^ My experience as well.

Yes, plug a play. Just take a few screws off, plug camera in, put screws back, put camera in car, power up, and go. Works well for me. I use it both for backing the trailer and as a review view mirror to help with changing lanes while on the freeway.

There are two versions of the camera. Make sure you get the one called the "Observation" version. The other one is for very slow speed only. The Observation one works going down the freeway as well. That's the one I have, and at least that is my understanding of the difference between the two.
