you can use your smartphone as a remote viewer of what the camera sees.

Good to know, I was not aware of this. And is why I never bought a GoPro. I have been wanting a DJI Phantom with the GoPro but held off because of the WiFi.

If your RV has a rear bedroom window, why not mount it inside, looking out? That way, you don't have to worry about long-term exposure to weather. Go-Pro cameras are intended for occasional outdoor excursions, not 24/7 exposure.

I tried this about this same time last year. My issue is the delay can be pretty awful, especially if you are in an RV park with a wifi system. I tried a few times and the delay drove me crazy. If you can live with the three to 5 second delay, it will be a good solution.

I run a gopro on my Hexacopter and get a live feed from the camera to a 7 inch monitor I have attached to my RC transmitter. The way it works is as follows. a small video transmitter plugs into the USB port on the GoPro and broadcasts the video live to my 7 inch monitor (no lag time). The transmitter is powered by the onboard battery on my hex. Batteries are not expensive can get one for about $20. The transmitter is about $40 and the monitor is the expensive part cost about $150 with the receiver built in. I would go with the GoPro and a smart phone or tablet as the lag is not too bad.

Brilliant. I find my GoPro fun and easy to use. nice to find some other uses for it.

Fun to walk around a crowded area while wearing a GoPro. Amazing what some people will do when they think they are on camera!

OP did mention just leaving it in place while backing up. Battery doesn't last long enough to leave it on there all the time. Might be more convenient inside anyway.
