That's what my DW said but I paid for the camera and it's a shame it doesn't work. I think I got lied to today when I called Cedar Creek. They said that Cedar Creek did the wiring and they do but they send the camera along and let the dealer install the camera but when you buy any camper expect to get lied too.

I disagree with your statement about being lied too from Cedar Creek!

I did not order the back-up camera from CC, just another electronic item to fail. But the camper is pre-wired by Cedar Creek and the dealer is to install the camera at the dealership if purchased. This is the way ours was shipped to us.

The companies contracted to tow the campers to the dealers have no need for them and the campers sit it the haulers yards waiting for a tow rig to tow them. The cameras could be stolen if installed.

We took our grandkids to Bristol IN, this year and when driving around saw several contract companies with campers waiting in the storage yard to be deliver to dealers.

Cedar Creek knew that camera would only transmit 30ft, what they did was look at the back of the camera and saw it would transmit 330ft in a open area. Cedar Creek did not put the camera on but it went with the camper to be installed later by the dealer. Cedar Creek is just like all the other company's that make campers, do anything to save a buck at my expense.

I am pretty sure that for a few bucks more (and I mean just a few bucks) CC could also pre-wire an antenna extension cable from the location of where the camera (of whatever brand) is to be installed, to the front cap and have a small, water tight port for an antenna. That would cure this whole problem.

In the meantime, I bought the Rearview Safety quad camera system (with only the rear camera). That works great when stationary but as soon as you move forward faster than walking pace the signal freezes up. I contacted their Customer Service Dept and they were great (at first), sending me a pair of booster antenna for the camera and monitor at no charge. It improved slightly. When I contacted them asking for further advice, not a word. It has been almost a month now and several emails, none of which have been responded to. All I am asking is do they sell the extension cable so that I can bring the antenna to the front end.

If anyone knows what sort of coax I need I would be grateful for any advice and where to buy the stuff from as well.

Cheers.

I called Furrion and Cedar Creek, I then heard back from Furrion. They are going to send me another camera, the only thing wrong is the camera that came on camper is for 30ft line of site and my camper is 35ft. There are two models of this camera, one is for 30ft line of site and one is for 100ft line of site. Cedar Creek sends the one for 30ft line of site. The genius at Cedar Creek all they done was look on back of camera and see where it said 330 ft open area and said this will work and it's $399 and the next model is $499, we can save $100 but the $399 camera is only good for 30ft and it will not work. There is a difference between open area and line of site. I paid for this camera and I expect it to work just like the TV and the TV lift, the fireplace and all the other extra stuff that I paid for. I did not order the camper, I brought the camper off the lot and good luck with trying to take stuff off of a camper that's on the lot.

1 TT; 2 5ers; 8 years; including x country and back. No camera. Patient spouse; cell phones and practice parking.
As far as "observation" when rolling; great factory towing mirrors gives a clear side vision.
Guess with a motorhome, watching your TOAD
would be important since you cannot see it.
In states allowing a double tow with a 5er, I would have one for sure. You are responsible for what you tow.

Update

I just got a new camera, I called and talked to someone and all I have to do is send the old one back. This new camera is like the one that came on camper but this monitor has a antenna on it and it's good for 100 ft. It's raining here so will be Saturday before I can hook it up
