daigle01 can you post a picture of where you mounted the bracket on the rear window and a view of what the monitor sees. I am trying to find a location that shows me enough to see both sides of the road for backing in either left or right. DW has no idea how much distance is needed before backing 90 into a site.

OldCoot, here are the pictures that you requested. The first two are of the bracket mounted to the window sill. The other shows the view out the back window for perspective for the picture of the monitor in the last photo.

Thank you very much, I just ordered a 2nd camera and will toy with mounting one in the window and make 2 other mounts, one for each side to use depending on which side will be turning into the site. Might even talk DW into moving them and then hear her comments.

Those are great pics. Thanks for posting. I have a feeling I will be installing a camera mount in my back window this weekend.

Thanks. I haven't travelled down the road with it yet, but I am worried about vibration. If that happens, I will cut a piece of aluminum plate and put that under the bracket to help stabilize it.

Based on information posted here previously, I liked the idea of using the supplied mount to put the camera into the back window. In my RV, putting it on the upper cross-member would make it too high, and I couldn't mount it to the bottom, as shown in those pictures, because half of that window slides open (to the right) and is, in fact, the "emergency exit".

What I came up with was to use a foam-rubber block that would sit in the frame of the window (at the bottom) but could be easily removed. I found this at Hobby Lobby:

(No, I didn't buy it because it was "pretty"; the one with this design gave me the largest block of rubber to play with.)
I cut a piece the width of the block and 7/8" down. This slides tightly into the window frame (but can be removed). This foam is dense enough that I can just use the supplied screws directly into that foam. Here's what it looks like pressed into the window:

Here's the block by itself. Note that I left the pink stuff on the bottom just to give it added depth:

I can tell even without trying it that the camera is too loose on the bracket they supply and it's going to shake like crazy. I may try taping the camera to the bracket, but in the end, I think I'm going to need to put a piece of soft foam between the camera antenna and the window and just tape that antenna to the window itself. I'll know more in a few days.

I picked up one yesterday and it's pretty cool. Got a question about the window frame mounts in the previous posts. I have a Day/Night shade on my real window won't the mount be in the way?

Got another question will the monitor charge off one of those mini usb cigarette lighter plugs?

The shade on my back window had enough slack in it to clear the mount and camera. I plan to travel with the shade down. As far as the cigarette lighter charge, I assume it would work if you find the right one.
