On our way to FL it was so bad, I had my wife try all the camera settings while I was driving, just so I could get a reflection or something off the car and tell it was still back there. Once back home and washed the rear of coach, i realized how bad the grime actually was. During the day it even looked almost black and white!

I think that fancy rear cap causes a lot of turbulence around the camera.. Needs a wind tunnel test.. New camera wont be here till mid day Monday

We have a RVC camera on the rear of our cargo trailer and a RVC camera on the rear of our Sunseeker 2500TS. The cargo trailer camera is 3 yrs old. Both cameras have the sun visor and both work equally well. There is a slot between the camera and the shield which may actually negate the swirling in the area of the camera. I have only once cleaned a lens other than doing a wash job. I believe the visor protects the lens from sun and weather. The only reason I can see for leaving the visor off your rig is to increase the distance the camera can see to the rear.

Both of the above cameras are tipped down to see within 6 ft. of the back end. But they can still see quite far to the rear for traffic even with the visors. Both the camera tilt and the visor tilt are independently adjustable with the same mounting screws being 3 on each side. Snug the screws so there is enough friction to hold the camera and visor. Have someone viewing the monitor to tell you when the view is the best and the visor is not visible. Then tighten the screws.

Just wanted to inform you all of the outcome from installing a new camera.. It works perfect I can see in the dark for the first time and it came with the proper shield so we are all good.. To bad I had to do all the repairs on our coach myself but we are golden now
