Chris Columbus / rear camera

Can anyone tell me if the rear camera option offered on the Columbus has night vision? Maybe Chris Columbus could confirm?

The answer is yes its not perfect at night but functions better than any others I have had. It works wonder in the day time, I would not want to travel without it.

Do you notice any static or disconnect with it being wireless? I just ordered it for our 365. (Still being built)
Thanks

rear camera remote operation

FYI
Reguarding the rear camera.
I just bought a 2013 leprochaun with a rear camera.
I thought it would serve me better if it would swivel up and down remotely.
So I set upon a weekend project and installed and mounted the camera on a remote power sideview mirror and mounted it to the back of the RV. This way I will be able to pan my view of either side bumper while backing up on my own. I can View my tow behind and pan up to monitor my wife driving behind me with a touch of the toggle switch. Haven't taken it out on the road as yet, but March trip to Fla will see if it was worth the time and effort.

Remember the Voyager brand camera is a pretty good brand. It does OK. It is not the best, it does not alleviate you from the G O A L esp at night. It does give you more information you need to use wisely. All in all it works.
