Yes that's the model I have also. . Did you follow the above directions? . Did it fix the problem?
And it's,
Lou

I had the same problem last month when I was towing for the first time. I noticed cars were passing me on the right when they were actually on my left. I don't remember if it was the little remote I got with the backup or the monitor itself but I got it straightened out.

Poppytoymaker, thanks. I did not get a remote with mine. Hopefully FR can fix it.

No, not yet!

Sgtim17, I'm sitting in my 2401 R right now with iPad in hand following your method. Mine doesn't work that way, but looks the same as yours.

When I hit M, I get the first option, Brightness with three options on the right, AV1. AV2 or AV3. Pressing M again, while it remains at AV1, I get the left camera brightness bars. Pushing M again, nothing happens. Back at the menu, I have to push the down arrow to get to TURN, then I have a choice of Up Or Down. Pushing down, the image is upside down, not an image of a mirror. I must have a different model of the RVS system.

I give up. It's too hot out here and my beer is getting warm.

Sorry to here that. . Don't worry I'm sure FR will get it taken care of. . Hopefully nothing that will take to long. . There are usually a few little bugs that need attention on these things when they roll off the line. .
As I always say it all part of the experience. Enjoy your new rig
Lou

Problem solved!n

For those who have the backward or non-mirror image on the rear-view/backing cameras, I hope this will be of help to them.

Apparently, FR used different version of the controller (multiplexer) and monitors from RVS Systems. Others report various locations. Mine was behind the panel on the furthest left side of dash. After screwing the star drive screw out, there it was staring at me with its three switches exposed. Quite simple. The next thing was to determine which switch to reset. I tried all of them and the top or third switch, the monitor reversed to show a mirror image a lot of time spent trying to find it, but a simple task. My chassis is the 2015 MBS, BUT that doesn't mean all the Forester MBS placement is the same, but for this year and model, here it is.

Thank all of you who tried to solve this.

Jerry

Good thread! ...and now get your step ladder and a small Allen wrench to loosen the screws on the rear camera and point it as far upward as possible.

Most importantly, enjoy your new rig!
