How long have you guys been using a camera on the trailer? I put one on my last trailer, but within 6 months it was fogging up inside. There was no way to open it and dry it out. Just had to wait a couple weeks for it to dry up. Finally just removed it. It was out of warranty. I suppose it's a case of getting what you pay for. My truck camera has never fogged up. Best thing since sliced bread for hooking up the hitch.
The new FOS48TA-BL is installed! It's a true rear view camera system. The FRC12TA-BL works as advertised - it's a back up camera. When used as a rear view camera system I had a problem with it constantly loosing signal and tiling. The new FOS48 system is a huge improvement. It works smoothly and hasn't dropped the signal yet. It also is plug & play if your rig is pre-wired like ours was. The manual says that the camera and monitor must be paired, but ours came already paired.
Just remember that the TV running lights must be on to power the system.
I hope this helps.
