I have about decided against the possible purchase since I read a previous posting in which the writer spoke on the differences between the "12" and the "48" models. I really would like to have a GOOD back up/observation camera system for the rear, especially since my Flagstaff was prewired for the Furrion and already has the weather proof mounting on the outside rear panel, but just am not ready to commit to the "12", or the Furrion, for that matter until I can get more comfortable with what I read. Thanks very much for your response. I hope we can stay in touch via DIRECT email (outside of this forum) in the event I overcome my fear. My email again is: Jobecka1@earthlink.net

Surveyor, I am sorry for just getting back to you. I asked the question right as I was headed camping up in Oklahoma. I just got back in a few hours ago and seen you answered my question. I am looking for one that has a rear viewing while driving forward as well as backing up. It appears the one you have does not offer that. I am sorry for stringing you along without a quicker response. Thank you for checking.

Adding a 2nd Furrion Camera

Has anyone added a second camera to the system and if so does it work as described?

It appears you could add a second camera to the side (powered by a front side clearance light) and use the rotation key on the display during setup to rotate the picture 45 degree and it would work as a curb-side camera mounted on its side.

(Wish I would have done better research prior to telling the dealer to include it in the package)

The Furrion model "12" supports 2 backup cameras. You could have the one at the back of the trailer and a second one in the truck bed for hooking up.I tried this set up and it will work. BUT...the model "12" will not work well as a driving-down-the-highway monitor or observation camera. The Furrion model "48" does work driving down the highway BUT...its a single camera only system. Does not have the 2 camera option. Forest River installs the Furrion model 12. You can work direct with Furrion to exchange for a model "48". The sealed base that FR installs at the back of the trailer is the same base for both models. You only need swap the camera/monitor pair. Keep your base that's already attached to the trailer.

we have this model, Furrion FRC12TA-BL it was already installed and a freebie with our Surveyor 5th wheel. However the camera points directly down and only shows about 1-2 feet away from the bumper straight down. we have tried to move the lens so we can actually use it to back with but the camera lens seems to be one that doesn't adjust or move at all. pretty useless and the "instruction" manual doesn't say anything about moving it. Hubby climbed up to see if it can be manually adjusted and it can't. has anyone used theirs yet? any tips on getting the camera view to actually show what is behind the camper so we can use it to back up with?

I have it and it is adjustable. It's just that the mounting bracket is stiff, but it is adjustable to 3 positions. The highest position does point down but maybe not as much as yours is set to now. Just put your thumb at the front in the middle just above the lens. Push hard and you should feel it click up.

If that doesn't work, you can easily take it down so you have a more comfortable time messing with it. There are four tiny phillips head screws that hold it into the mounted bracket and the bracket's simple rubber gasket. Once the screws are removed (careful don't drop them they are small and black), you'll see a single wire that is attached by a simple mini-plug. Just unplug the mini-plug, take it down, examine the adjustment and put it back up. You do NOT have to take it down to adjust, I just found that easier than hanging off the ladder. I think the reason it's so stiff to adjust is so that it keeps its position as you tow down the road.

I too just purchased the Furrion Backup camera, model FOS48TAPK-BL.


It installed easily by removing the four small screws on the top of the camera cover. Plugged the plug and socket together and screwed the four screws back. After doing this, adjusted the camera angle, it has several positive "clicks" as you adjust it to the desired angle.


The camera worked straight away when I pulled it from the boxed for an initial test. There is a socket next to the cig plug that allows you to plug in the camera and test it.


After installation, I turned on the running lights and the camera was dead. Then I realized that my 2015 FR Cardinal 3875FB is wired so the camera works only when in reverse. I suspect all I have to do is swap the camera power wire to the running lights for constant use


Any comments about the color and location of the camera wire would be appreciated so I can swap it from reverse lights to running lights.


The wireless picture looks nice in color and will fit my needs nicely. Love the fact that FR supplied this bracket - so easy to install, took only 10 minutes.


It would be good if the camera MFG Furrion can provide a USB style connection, most new trucks have them now and they are better than the old school high current cigarette lighter plug, which I already use for the tire pressure monitoring system.
