Furion observation camera stopped working

I have been using my furion visions observation system without a problem. But I plugged it in yesterday and it keeps saying no signal. I haven't changed anything. What could be going wrong???
I bought it a few months ago and had it installed at the rv dealer I use. Do I need to go back to them or call Furion?

Did you turn your lights on?

Is the camera and display paired?

Just in case you were unaware there is a button on the camera to pair or in your case re-pair the camera to the receiver. On most Furrion models the camera must be removed from the mount to access the button. My apologies if you have tried this already.

Yes my lights were on. I restarted everything x3. It has been paired and working for 3 trips since it was installed. Never had an issue before yesterday.

It's also possible that the power connector to the camera vibrated loose. I think there is a blue LED on the camera that should be illuminated when there is power...

I need my tv parking lights on to power the camera. Could be a simple loose or corroded connection, antenna position, also some bluetooth devices can hijack the signal. Not sure why, but had to do the pairing over again once.

Check fuse

Mine did the same thing on my travel trailer. I did not realize that the running lights were not working on the trailer. I checked connection from the truck to trailer & found that signal was not getting to wiring on truck. I tracked it back to the fuse box under my hood of the truck & found a blown fuse that is used for towing. I don't know if this helps in your situation since you have a RV & not a trailer, but, maybe give you some other things to think about. Good luck.

Mine was a broken antenna lead wire in the monitor when mine quit and wouldn’t re-pair.

It was junk and not repairable. It was not covered as the warranty expired just shortly before it went down. Furrion was no help, but the dealer warrantied it for me when furrion wouldn’t.

Check that the camera is powering on. Mine had a short in the factory installed wiring at the connector. I cut connectors off and jelly filled wire connectors. No problems since.

Check to make sure the antennas on the camera and the viewer are 1)both straight up and down and 2) not loose. Antennas need to be up and down to get a better signal (read it somewhere).
