Blurry back up camera

The back up camera on my Northpoint is very blurry to the point of being unusable. I cleaned the lens to see if that would help but no improvement. Has anyone else had that problem and if so were you able to fix it, or do I need to buy a new camera or a whole new system.

Wow, that is a bummer to hear your backup camera went blurry inside. And yours too Dan? We fulltime and added the $592 option backup cam. Itís a Voyager WVOS541 on our 2017 North Point 377RLBH. However, it is a wireless fulltime camera hard wired into the house batteries. It has no off switch, so itís on 24/7. Itís nighttime IR isnít any good anymore, although we only arrived after dark on only three occasions years ago. I thought Jayco went with a different model the following year, but ours was supposed to have been the highest rated at the time and meant for fulltime rear security when parked, youíd plug-in the monitor in the 12v outlet in the master bedroom dresser. It is very low def and can barely see a vehicle at 100í, and has a half second delay, so you have to factor that in when driving. Would love to get a wired HD cam back there someday, along with two more cams at the corners monitoring tail swing.

So did you get a replacement cam by now? What kind?

I went with the Haloview rear camera with the side marker cameras. Couldnít be happier!

Blurry back up camera

Iíve read about those sometime ago. Tom put them on his and was mostly happy. I didnít remember it had a large red running light for the rear camera. Is it quite bright, and/or is it optional to install?

Also, with the side cams up front, how well can you monitor tail swing? Edit: can all three cams be monitored at once for a long time or does it default to rear cam while driving?

I know I posted a picture of the monitor screen somewhere, but I donít have it on my phone. I LOVE the side marker cameras! I can see the complete side of the 5er. When we 1st purchased the 377, I hit a pole at the storage lot thatís on my passenger side that I didnít anticipate with the tail swing. Iíve always respected that pole since & have someone stand there on my blindside to let me know if I get close. I nolonger need this spotter with these cameras.

I have the same issue with water intrusion in my side camera and I think I found why today as I was parked beside another Jayco 5W.

On mine the camera are mounted upside down, and I think water comes in from the pairing button and the light sensor which is now on top and exposed to rain.

I always wonder why the Furrion logo was reverse !

See the picture

Some of those backup cameras are not designed to be on fulltime. Constant use produces burnout which results in blurred imaging.

Just got the response from Lippert (Furrion) and the are installed wrong, the pairing button has to be facing down, not up.

That means Jayco have incorrectly installed them from factoryÖ

I had the same problem with three furrion backup cameras (one in my previous trailer that I installed, and two in my North Point) after about a year to year and a half. I stopped giving them money and switched to haloview now.

Do you like the Haloview? Is the signal better than the Furrion ? Mine is borderline, especially the back one I barely get 1 bar of signal
