Rear cameras

Are the cameras that they are putting on the back of the new Cedar Creeks strictly back up? Or are they operational while driving also?

They will work but loose signal . Tried mine but found it was better to leave it off when on the road. I do use it when moving through campgrounds and tight areas.

Mine don't get a signal at all. I need to jumper the power wire about 35 ft to see if it gets any signal while standing behind the rv.

I was looking at a new Silverback 33IK with the camera system installed. There appeared to be a small antenna on the outside of the living room slide (driver side). Salesman was not sure what it was. If it was an antenna for the wireless camera it would provide a better signal to the TV. Anyone else see this or have any comments?

My Furrion camera will work backing up or going down the road, as long as my running lights are on. Furrion states that this camera doesn't have the strength to receive a signal while driving down the road. They say backup only. Some have added a wired antenna to increase the signal.

Tedstr - the small antenna on the side of the living room slide is the radio antenna.

The one on our 2014 Silverback is like a mirror and everything is backward. So you have to watch real close.

I have delayed a camera purchase until I can evaluate comments from various posters.
Having both; back up and in motion are beneficial to me as we go through Atlanta almost every time we travel. Those speed demons come up and next to you so fast it's ridiculous! A camera view in motion would be money well spent😀
Please continue to post comments by brand and what is needed for continual signal stream.
On Atlanta highways, 90 mph is the NEW 65 😜. You can actually be cited for impeding traffic if you are going the speed limit and groups of others speed by. ( which is always).

I represent ASA Electronics, the producer of the JENSEN brand of televisions, stereos, and speakers, Voyager brand of observation monitors and cameras and the Advent brand of appliances. At ASA, we strive to provide excellent customer service and product satisfaction and would like to offer some assistance.

Both our wired and wireless Voyager observation systems are designed to work full time, meaning both while driving down the road and during triggered modes (back-up, turn signals). For wireless systems, some trailers may need to extend the wireless antenna forward for improved reception while in-motion due to the roof height, slope and distance to the in-cab monitor. This can be done easily with an optional antenna extension we have available.

If you need further assistance, please call our Technical Services dept at 877-845-8750 M-F 8:00AM to 6:00PM EDT and they will be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.

I believe the main reason manufacturers do not setup their cameras to be on while driving is the same reason GPS manufacturers have included a display off while moving option as some states do not allow video displays that are visible to the driver while driving. This may change as it is difficult to buy a vehicle today that does not have a display built in. Most of the camera systems activate the camera via the backup lights and offer a simple solution to have it operate full time.

I have the camera on my 2015 Cedar Creek 36CKTS. It works when I turn TV my lights on. Turn lights off camera goes off. It is wired into the marker lights on mine

The picture is intermittent. Freezes , goes away then comes back. Not reliable enough for me to use. Good thing it wasn't an expensive option.
