Furrion wireless camera receiver?

My camper has a pre-wired wireless camera installed and I'm not exactly sure what I need to set it up. The manufacturer's web site isn't great and was hoping someone would have some insight.

You sure its the camera or just the preinstalled mount? Without the camera, its just a smooth curved plastic cover. With a camera, you would see the lens and there would be a little stub antenna sticking up on the right side (and you would also have gotten the monitor - apparently they are pre-paired so should be no setup involved). Power is from running lights so hook up your TV and turn on the lights.

That makes sense, I couldn't figure out why it looked bare but after you mentioned it, it's just a dummy.

The Furrion kit is about $399. I hear some people got a deal at Goshen. Some people are reporting reception problems with the Furrion and are on their second or third unit. I went with the Garmin RV GPS/backup cam combo in my sig (search on the forum and you'll also find my thread about installing it). Others have also had just as good luck at half the price with other backup cam kits - a forum search will also find you those.

Yes second unit. The issues are antenna related. Just need a small 1 foot SMA male to female extension. Next spring for me.
