Lexington factory back up camera

Anyone know who makes this unit? No manual came with the MH and I cannot find a manufacturer's name on it. Only "made in China" LOL

It does not come on when the MH is in reverse and I can only turn it on with the remote. The apparent "buttons" on the mirror do not seem to work. Would like to find a manual.

Mine also didn't come with a manual but the factory sent me one when it failed to work and I wanted to troubleshoot it. Mine is a 2011 Lexington GTS and the backup camera manufacturer is:

The backup is not turned on when the unit is put in reverse. It has to be turned on by a remote or the power button on the unit. But there could be different models & makes out there. My backup camera is a zone alarm & the name is on the front of unit.

Thanks for the info. I checked their site and do not see a model where the mirror looks like mine., ALSO, is there a third piece to the system beyond the camera and the mirror? What model is yours? Which factory sent u the manual, manufacturer or Forest River? Does ur unit come on when u are in reverse? Thanks for ur help.

It is manual so that you can keep it on when you want to watch your tow vehicle. If we connect it to the reverse power wire, then that's when it comes on (like a car).
