Question Backup Camera System

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good high quality camera system?

I just pick up the Furrion Observation Backup camera, I going to install it tomorrow. I already have the backup camera but it wasn't the right one so you want to look at this one which is FOS48TAPK-BL the one that you want to stay away from is the FRC12TA-BL because it's a backup camera only and if you want to run with it or have it on when you driving down the highway the FRC12TA-BL is not the one to get.


The dealer install the FRC12TA for me but didn't install the one I wanted so I had to buy the FOS48TA-BL and going to sell the one they install. The FRC12TA work great for backing up but driving down the highway it cut out sometimes.

X2 for the Furrion FOS48TA-BL system. I've had mine for about 2 years now.

Paw,

Having a bigger rig, 329, doe the rear camera system work well while driving down the e-way?

Keep considering a system myself to keep an eye on the bikes on the rear hitch.

What did you use to provide the hot wire or do you have it connected to the Center clearance light and you just have to have the parking lights turned on to run the camera?

X3 on the Furrion Rear Observation Camera. Works great on our 41' Pinnacle. Never drops out. It was prewired at the factory. The wire was bundled with the center rear running light. The camera is on all the time powered by the Pinnacle's batteries.

Received my Furrion Rear Observation Camera yesterday and will be installing it this weekend. Furrion offers a straight up backup camera and the observation camera.

The backup camera only works when backing up, the observation type lets you view the back of your TT as you go down the road. The observation type gives one an extra measure of safety, letting you change lanes etc. while viewing who is behind or in another lane.

Here is a good link if you are thinking of installing one yourself:
