Rear view camera

On my 2016 Greyhawk 29MV, the rear view camera is integrated into the third brake light mounted high on the coach. All I can see with the camera is the grill of my toad. I, too, would like it to see a lot more of what's going on behind me.

Is this one, as described above, adjustable at all? Anyone else have the same concern?

I asked Customer Service about adjusting my rear view camera on my 2016 Redhawk. Their answer is below.


The only way that we know of adjusting the angle of the rear camera is to add washers between the body of the camera and the rear wall of the motorhome. You take the screws out and add the washers in that area and then replace the screws. Please make sure that if the seal is compromised to reseal the camera as needed

What model radio/nav system does your rig have? Perhaps another user with that model radio can relate the correct information.

My unit is a 2014 and has a Clarion head unit, it is an easy menu selection for me to choose the camera and look back. The Clarion will continue to play whatever it already was (CD, FM, Sirius), it just displays the camera on the screen until you make another choice.

I sure hope Jayco retained that functionality in the newer units, good luck.

Did you ever get an answer on this? I am having the same issue with the added twist that my camera is pointed more right then center so when used in backing everything is off.

I have a 2016 Redhawk 31XL

Mine doesn't even turn on unless you go to reverse...useless as a rear view camera, even though the rear view mirror is unusable in the 2015 Redhawk (offset from center, and blocked by the folding mattress). The camera and display mirror are from some company and cost a whole $99, what an option from Jayco.


(Mito Corp, camera now discontinued of course)

Have you tried to turn it on while in a forward gear?
Mine will come on and all the RV cameras I've had have worked the same.

The power to the camera (2015) comes from the backup lights. Just switch the power to the ignition 12v out. It will work whenever the ignition is on.
