Why can't you see in your mirror now?

Hard to answer without knowing what you have........

Sorry, I'm just lost. Maybe someone else can help. Behind you ...... doesn't tell me if you have a Motorhome, a Fifth Wheel, or what, or what cab you are wanting to see in. I assume you mean during travel???

I have a Furrion Observation Camera.......mount on of those anywhere and look at the monitor while driving, I guess.

Sorry for all the confusion I thought when I posted this I posted it under Sun Seekers.
I'm in a Class C motorhome and I just want to see what my kids are up to behind me while driving all I have is a monitor for the backup camera to see what other people have done where they placed mirror

Couldn't you just buy an aftermarket mirror and stick to the windshield? Or this?

Since he is posting under motorhome/Sunseeker I guess that is what he has.

I know what you mean by not having the view in back inside the motorhome but you really have enough to look at with forward and both side mirrors when driving. To solve the solution you need to spend the big dollars and get a wife, at least that is what I use.

I get it kite. I like everyone seated and buckled when we pass through small towns along the highway. The baby or boat mirror posted above at Walmart looks promising. It is on my "to do" list now.

I'm desiring the same thing - I had a mirror in the old Four Winds - and a Fresnel lens in the rear window. It was a good setup.
In the new Sunseeker, I have the backup camera monitor in place of the mirror, as does the OP. I cannot see back into the coach like I used to do - "What's that loud noise back there - did the refer just dump its contents?" I'm considering moving the backup monitor up to the space where the cab light is located now on our Chevy chassis, and installing a standard rear view mirror. This would help a couple things - I would be able to see back into the coach, and the mirror size is smaller than the backup monitor, so less of the view is obstructed. It's a project for another day.

Glad to know I'm not the only one...

hmmm, so since several of us have the monitor already installed and want the ability to take a quick glance in back, I wonder if the existing monitor has any unused inputs? I mean, lets use the tech. I will go by storage today and dig out the manual.
