Furrion Wireless RV Backup Camera: Why I choose it?
I have a Grand-Design RV and recently bought the Furrion wireless RV backup camera on Amazon. The backup cameras are a greatest and the safest addition to RV since the cameras come in handy when changing lanes, or when parking.
The Furrion device came with a camera, a mount, a power wire for the monitor and a power wire for the camera, and a 4.3” LCD color display.
The Furrion cameras take less than five minutes to be installed in your RV. Our Grand-Design RV had a pre-installed housing at the back. All I had to do was take the outer panel out of the housing.
There was a wire inside the housing and the Furrion camera had to be connected to that wire and latched inside the housing. There are four screws on the corners helping us to fit the camera without any hassle. The camera that is mounted can also be adjusted vertically for the best view. It can be tilted to whatever angle the driver finds convenient.
I found the monitor of the camera to be compact. It looked small, but personally, to me, it’s the right size one should look out for. I placed my monitor on the window and the suction cup mount stood itself rigidly on to the glass.
It can also be placed on a cigarette lighter socket or an accessory socket. The LCD display can also be tilted for the best view. The LCD display also allows for picture adjustments.
You can adjust the brightness, contrast, image orientation according to your needs with a push of a button. The LCD display also supports a gridline button which comes in handy especially when parking.
The gridline measures the distance between the RV and the object at the back, so the drivers can be notified when your RV comes in close distance to the object. The pictures on the LCD display is always crystal clear.

Performance and Image Quality
One thing I loved about the camera is its resolute performance. The camera can withstand any climatic conditions. Most cameras create problems in the extreme weather but Furrion negates that possibility.
The camera can also withstand vibrations providing best quality images even when the RV judders. I went on a two-hundred-mile trip and was awestruck with the flawless streaming.
The transmissions are bound to conk out sometimes when driving at high speeds. But with Furrion cameras, it never was the case. The RF signals are quite strong in this unit.
The Furrion camera provides seamless video transfer for up to 100 feet behind and 30 feet on the sides. Not just that, the camera has infrared that allows the camera to transfer videos even at night! The images are slightly grainy in the LCD color system at night but still is helpful in identifying the objects at the back.
The camera finds its best use when carrying a travel trailer. With a travel trailer, it is always difficult to figure out what’s at the back. Most drivers find it difficult to change lanes, park or stop an RV carrying a trailer using just the mirrors. But with the camera, the fear is all gone now. You can exactly estimate what’s behind the trailer and its sides and drive easy and safe.

Overall, it was well-spent 300 dollars.
