Cherokee Backup Camera system?

I met with my dealer and got an initial spec sheet for the 2021 Wolf Pup 16BHS Black Label. Some differences for sure (Cannon 12v refer in, all Furrion products out, no external solar port, among others).

What is new and what I can't get data on is a "Cherokee Backup Camera System". Anyone know anything about this? Manufacturer? Does it connect to the tow vehicle monitor?

Thanks!

Currently there is no RV camera system that connects with the tow vehicle's monitor.
Odds are the camera prep is for a Furrion system. I doubt that ALL Furrion products are out. Probably just their 12v only fridges.
Nearly all towables only come with the camera PREP, not the whole system.
I'd be interested in what a Cherokee Sanitizer is.

I can confirm that FR is ending it's Furrion relationship at least for the 2021 model year. I emailed a corporate sales rep and she confirmed that due to continual quality issues, regular warranty requests, and supply issues, they are ending relationship with Furrion. I put it in another post, but basically moving all Solar to Warree (India), stero electronics to Driven/DB, refer to Cannon, micro to Contoure.

Also, BrandMotion sells an Auto-Connect trailer system with factory display integration. Model 9002-7894 connects to GM 8" displays. $500 though, ouch.

I have the 2020 Cherokee and i purchased this system from amazon which is what was marked on the pre installed cover on the back of my trailer. If they did actually put on on before discontinuing the relationship as the other person reported, this is the one I used. I don't have any issues with it. The picture is a little choppy but probably expected from a wireless camera that is in motion..

I had seen some videos that included the soap pump and wondered what option had to be chosen to get that. Now I see that mine was produced before the COVID-19 Accessory Option was available.

Cherokee 274brb

Yes my 2021 trailer shows backup camera but nothing is there. I dont even have a prep. Why print a spec sheet when some items are not installed. Going to get in touch with Forest River as I feel cheated. It is supposed to be in the total control app for your phone. I do have the newest blackout doors so everything there listed is included that i know of so far. Have to get in to see about total control.

Our 2021 Grey Wolf 25RRTBL was supposed to be fully loaded which included the rear view camera prep along the portable solar panel port near the front. Both were notably absent. What they did give in return was the ceiling mounted subwoofer, OneControl WiFi prep and of course, the highly sought-after Forest River sanitizer pump;-)

On our 2021 Arctic Wolf 287BH we ended up with the Driven DRWC4.3 backup camera, the ceiling mounted subwoofer, the wifi prep and the lovely sanitizer pump.

Any pics of that Driven camera? I haven't seen one, and I can't find anything about it online.

So it seams they can (or not) put anything they want to. Since it's on their website all options listed for trailer limited, basecamp ect why spend the time? Now I do have the Cherokee total control where you can turn lights on and off, operate side out and awning but No Cherokee backup camera or camera prep, nothing I need to call them.

I don't see how to attach files but if you look at cherokee website under Limited package it's listed there. Cherokee backup system. Nothing about prep
I figured out how to attach

Here are some pics of the camera and the manual. It doesn't seem very special, though I don't have much experience with them. It took multiple times trying different things to get it to pair. I haven't used it yet, just hooking it up in my driveway making sure it works. I wasn't originally wasn't expecting to get the camera. The original paperwork I looked at said camera prep, but that was the 2020 pamphlet. The 2021 pamphlet does say camera included.
