For Furrion camera owners

I installed a Furrion camera right after purchasing my trailer and have used it on many trips. But now, for some strange reason, the bracket that holds the monitor screen will not stay attached to the windshield with the suction cup. Itís like the locking mechanism will not pull enough suction to hold. I canít see where anything broke, but it wii not hold at all now. Pretty frustrating. I have been trying to figure out ways to ďfixĒ it, but being on the road I havenít come up with anything.

Clean the windshield?
Lick the suction cup?
Maybe the basics will work......

Personally I’ve had 3 versions of those suction cup windshield holders. They never stay on, even after a tight hold. I think it has something to do with switching from cold to hot constantly. Now I just drop it in a cup holder, the suction cup fits just fine.

I saw another post where someone attached the monitor to the rear view mirror with some of those hair scrunchies. Iím gonna have to try that, donít need that mirror when towing.

Same issue and I finally gave up and bought an off the shelf suction cup with magnetic holder. Frys had the Naztech MagBuddy Windshield Mount on sale for $9.99. it works great, but I think any aftermarket mount will be better than the OEM Furrion...
This is the one:

Thanks for the suggestions folks. I have already been looking at after market solutions. Maybe I can hang it from the mirror somehow until I get back home.
