Rear Safety or Rear-View Safety?

I'm unable to find a brand name, "Rear Safety". Do you mean, "Rear-View Safety"?

Robb,My husband just installed the Furrion High Speed Observation and Backup Camera model # FOS48TA-BL. It's their newest camera. They said people were trying to use the FRC12TA-BL camera as an observation and backup camera & it was only meant to be used as a backup camera that is why it was freezing up and dropping the signal. Being our Windjammer was pre-wired and had the Furrion mount it was so easy to install - just take off the 4 screws and the plate & plug in the camera. It paired right up and we used it this past weekend on a 2 hr. ride each way. It worked great never lost the signal and didn't freeze up. If you are interested in it I bought it on EBay for $399.00. Furrion sells it on their website for $499.00. I sold my Rear View Safety system to a guy in our RV Club. Rear View Safety system seemed to be made better but my husband didn't want to drill any holes in our RV. Furrion was easy to install and works great just make sure you get the new model. I hope this helps you. Cyndi

Cyndi, if I may, which monitor did you decide to use with this camera?
Our 8528IKWS is also 'prewired', but with no camera so far. We're very interested in this model camera, but with big GPS monitor, TST monitor, etc--we're running out of dash space!
We have been looking at their 7 inch mirror mount as a good alternative to get it up off the dash.
(Anyone else chiming in here would be good, if you have experience with this monitor)
Thanks, Cyndi (et al)

The Furrion camera comes with the Monitor. It is around 4 inches or so. If you want to also use the camera as an observation along with the backup make sure you get the Furrion model number FOS48TA-BL. This model works great never loses connection or freezes up. Plus it's wireless and is very quick and easy to install especially if you are already pre wired with the Furrion mount.

I installed the Rearview Safety RVS-CW-CAM on my Cedar Creek 38fl a couple of weeks ago. Installation was easy with the most difficult part being trying to locate the wiring loom that was pre-installed for the Fusion camera. After fishing around for a few minutes using a bent wire coat hanger I managed to find it. I then cut off the Fusion connector and attached to wires from the RVS to the installed wires in the trailer. The cameras works just great at walking speed but any faster and i lose the picture. I contacted RVS and they are mailing a set of booster antenna to me, free of charge. When they arrive, I hope that will cure the loss of signal. I am sure the loss I suffer is due t the location I have the camera mounted and the length and subsequent interference I have from the 5er.

Morning all

This was exactly the information I was looking for. After 2 months of researching, watching YouTube sales videos, emailing Forest River and driving all over Texas to see various floor plans and interiors in person we are finally going to be ordering our Flagstaff 25BHS today and we're super excited for the adventures ahead of us.

My experience with pulling a trailer is limited cause the travel trailer we have now (that we're trading in) was pulled to an RV park outside of Houston, kept there for a year and a half and then pulled home. So with big plans for this new one, I would like to use any tools available to help me travel down the road and back it up safely.

The new micro lites now come pre-wired with the Furrion camera mount so it's good to know that this camera works well. It's pricey, but I think the price will be worth it if I can see behind the trailer as I go down the road rather than slowly changing lanes and hoping everyone gets out of the way...haha

I do have one worry though. Our trailer will have the built on back ladder. That ladder may make it easy for someone to climb up and take the camera. Have you worried about this or had any problems with this, CLewis? Only thing I can think of is to use some screws that have a head on them that requires an uncommon screwdriver or something to slow down any would be thieves. Generally RV parks are safe but I worry about when it's in a parking lot while we shop or something.

Sorry for the long winded post. It's my first one on this forum and like I said, it's an exciting day for us.
