Furrion mount

I will be receiving a Furrion OBSERVATION and back up system tomorrow. Looking to install it Friday prior to heading to Florida.

It looks pretty ez. ? Unscrew mounting bracket, hook wires to those in the bracket, screw camera down; plug rv into truck, turn on lights; pair the monitor to the camera.

Any other info or things to WATCH OUT FOR?!

I "assume" once the monitor is ON, hooked to the TV, then the camera is ON. that the wireless feed will pair the 2 and a picture will show up on the monitor? ( just like Bluetooth ) RIGHT?

I also "assume" that camera adjustment is ez.

All your assumptions should be correct.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Tnx. Have looked at all the utttohhh's posted and looks straight forward. Looking forward to actually seeing behind us. I can PARK this rig, but the camera is going to reduce the number of tries. 3 orange conesas markers and good to go.

I did this install about two weeks ago and it took about 15 minutes. Before you mount it to your trailer, I would test out BOTH the camera and screen in your truck. The screen has a power plug for the camera in the event of the two pieces becoming unpaired and requiring manual pairing.

All sounds good. Pairing probably may take more than once. Later RJD

I'm glad to have mine. To reduce clutter on your windshield, consider attaching your monitor to the rear view mirror with a couple elastic or rubber bands. Puts your "rear view" exactly where you would expect to find it

Furrion mount

If at 1st you don't succeed, turn on your headlights.... 😏. We didn't know that when we installed ours, but I see it in your feed.
