I installed my DualCam HP by myself. I measured about 30x and drilled once. Took about an hour tops. Not difficult at all. Not sure what some folks think this whole thing takes to setup, but I would say that it is not that much more difficult than installing a friction setup.

my manual says "100 feet". most parking lots should be more than adequate.

You can do it in a hundred feet...300-400 ft is better because you can set it, and then drive a hundred feet and check it...and repeat to make sure you hit it perfect.

I had measured and installed the brackets, then I drove the coach around town (much more than 100'). I then adjusted the "adjuster bolts" on the cam, took it back out around the block and it was perfect.

BTW...moving the coach made no difference at all. FWIW.

I could have just measured and installed without moving the coach.

Of course your results may vary, always wear your seatbelt, never speed or use a metal ladder in a storm (as a standard disclaimer).
