This doesn't sound like a problem but it is a big deal because the trailer moves a long way in 3 seconds.
I tried it, slow and the wifi won't reach thru all of that metal. I have a mount on the upper vent and sometimes the iPad can't reach outside the cab and communicate to the gopro.

Of course I have only tested it in my backyard so far. Next month I will do a road test.
And you'll love it on the road. Mine works great.

My camera on the back of the trailer worked well today except...
When driving in the rain, water pools up on the lens making it hard to see anything on the screen-

Same here in wet weather. Also, the winds in New Mexico were so bad they snapped the antenna right off our Voyager camera. We got that replaced in San Antonio at Texas RV supply. Great place! http://txrvsupply.com

Occasionally I will wipe the water off the lens at a rest area or fuel stop.

installation complete

Got the rvrearviewcamera installed in my Sport 16 today.

Had to move 12v socket to the side so I could close the rollup storage door.

In back I connected to the hot side of a nearby led light, carefully observing polarity with use of a VOM.

Toilet paper tested the system: I hung a long sheet of tp over the rear window roller shade, turned on the overhead fan, and walked around outside checking the video. The moving tp assured me I didn't have a frozen picture.

I sat in my tv running the engine. No problem. Then I drove from my backyard to the front of my house, unhitched. I had a signal almost to the street in front, with my house between me and my AS.

NOTE: I don't know why 2 of my pics are sideways. They were oriented correctly in photos, and I cannot find any way here to rotate them. Strangely the 3rd photo came out correctly.

My report on the camera is on the "What did you get for your trailer today" thread, post 2129. The attached photo shows my install, complete with a new switch and LED inserted into the existing light. It all works perfectly. JimClick image for larger version

Like the idea of putting the camera switch and LED into the light. Looks very tidy!

Has anyone installed the camera on this system outside near the center clearance light? My Classic 25fb rear dinette window has two accordion shade and when pull up all the way the distance from dinette cabinets to the lowest shade is about 6". The camera would have to have a long extension and would look ugly hanging down, at least I'm sure my DW would say.

Hi Kelvin
The camera comes with the appropriate mounting plate, antenna, and picture orientation when ordered for exterior mounting. The installation would be the same complexity as other brands and there are some good examples on the forums. I chose the inside mount since I just felt that it was a little less prone to being ripped off. Jim

Jim - great looking installation. Is there a screen on that window, and if so, how does it impact the picture?

Yes there is a screen and it is a tiny bit visible but you have to look real hard to notice it. Same with rear window dirt, like in the rain. I have not had to make a special stop to clean the window. It is just like looking through your rear view mirror, same maintenance. Jim
