Rear Camera Flooding

I have a 2019 Sport 22FB. The factory installed rear camera has a lot of water in it from all the rain we received this spring. My rear view from it is just a bright, blurry blob. First, someone at AS should have submerged those things to see if they leak, ‘cause they do. Second, removal and drying out. It is attached to a bracket with hex screws. OK, I can remove screws. The wiring goes into the AS through a rubber ‘plug’. I can remove a rubber plug. The question is, is the wire connector for the camera on the other side of the plug, or is the connector far from the hole, which would require removing panels? If the connector is right at the hole, I can remove it and dry the camera out, but if it’s far down the wall it looks like AS is going to do some warranty work. Anybody ‘been there, done that’ with the camera?

Shouldn’t happen. Defective camera. Get a new one.

That’s what I would think too. I threw it into the forum to see if anyone else had the same issue. Get enough and maybe. AS would stop it from happening in the future. (?)

Ok folks, I figured this one on my own. DO NOT REMOVE the camera bracket from the AS. You can dry it out without unplugging the camera. Six hex screws hold the camera to the bracket, four fine Phillips head screws hold the camera together, four short screws hold a circuit board to the outer lens. There will be two small wires holding the lens to that circuit board. STOP there!!! Dry off the inner lens with several Q-tips, allow to air dry for awhile. Reassemble. The real problem lies in the main wire coming into the unit. It forms a pocket where it comes in and there’s no gaskets around the wire hole. The pocket fills up and water floods in. I’m going to put some outdoor silicone window sealant around the wire hole. That should make it water tight. END

I had the same thing happen to the Voyager camera that I installed on our 2012,after taking apart and letting it dry out I put some gasket seal around the 2 halves and reassembled. We have had over 10 inches of rain since then and it is still dry.
