Ok, went to Wally World and bought one today. Playing with it at the house for now but seeing that the picture looks pretty good. Have camera in an upstairs window keeping an eye on the driveway for now. The monitor is down stairs and the picture is pretty good.

Plan on trying to use it to view the king pin line up rather than having to sit up tall in the seat to see it. Will then put it on the back of the Vengeance when backing in for a better view of what's going on.

Not bad for $149 and portable to boot. :-)

I showed this to DW tonight and she just shook her head and asked me if it was another camping toy that we needed I told her not to be surprised if one were to appear at the house.

Dad-Gum-It, Bobby. I think you just caused me to spend some money.

Just read one review over on Amazon that pointed out that the night vision doesn't work thru a window. Just FYI...

This seems to happen frequently at our house too.

I note that this wireless system operates on the same frequency as most wifi routers (2.4 GHz). GE makes a similar product that they say is "wifi friendly" (different frequency). Do any of you that have this also have wifi at home( or in your rig), and if so, have you seen any interference problems?

I got it near my wifi router at the house and the speaker started making a noise, but went away when I moved about ten foot or so. I never lost pic, but didn't check to see if I lost wifi.

I'll check it this evening to see when I get home.

I used the system this morning while hooking up one of our tire trailers to my truck.

Something I noticed this morning, when backing up and trying to align the trailer hitch on the ball.......is depending on how you have the camera aimed, it can make your right and left opposite on the camera, when trying to figure out which way to turn your truck. This is easily fixed by just turning your monitor upside down.
