Mine works about 15 feet from the sensor (battery?). The sensor has a "side" as well. The "hump" on one side is the location of the IR impact sensor. Make sure it is "up" is fastened to the wall of the camper.
You do know the control box is not waterproof and the pins are just connectors and not part of the "male" socket. The ends are 2 female sockets with header pins inserted. They come out if vibrated enough.
