i wish it was that simple for me but the problem is internal to the camera and maybe with how they implemented it

If there is something internal to the camera causing the condensation you could try drilling a tiny hole on the outer lens and heat the assembly up with a hair drier. That should evaporate whatever moisture its in there and then you can seal it off with a touch of silicone.

fullenw,
This has been an ongoing issue with the ASA cameras that are on the coaches. I had the same problem the entire time I had my '08 Berkshire despite being replaced several times. The only time the problem was resolved is when I purchased my '14 Berkshire that has color side cameras.
Good luck getting this issue resolved.
Tom

We had the same problem on our '13 351 DS. The dealer removed both cameras and placed them in a bag of rice for several days to absorb any moisture inside the camera. They then applied some type of sealant, probably silicone, around all seams on the camera and lens. They replaced them in the exterior housing and also re-sealed the housing. Keeping my fingers crossed but haven't had any fogging since then.

Your dealer had some quality thinkers working for them. I wouldnt ask mine to do anything that required thinking.

I have a hard time using those side cameras because I can't see the screen with my polarized sunglasses on. I just use the convex mirrors instead. They work well.

I have to say we've been extremely happy with our dealer, Bob Ledford's Adventure Motorhomes in Greer, SC. They have super knowledgable sales, parts and repair people and have consistently given great service on everything we've needed. The owner, David Ledford, always makes customer service their number one priority. Try the rice and sealant on the cameras. I agree, the mirrors will suffice but a little extra help from the cameras can't hurt either.

Agree, same here and I hate having to look down. The convex mirrors are more than enough. I would have gladly traded the two cameras for another rear one so that you can see down and way back.
