Camera adjustment

Hello all,

Just purchased my Jayco 31 fk Greyhawk RV. I am new to the RV world and all the new technology. Been looking thru manuals like crazy but can't find one on the RV's back up and side cameras. My question is simple are these cameras fixed or can they be adjusted? The rear camera points downward with only seeing about 15 foot behind. Unless they are right on my bumper I can't see them, it would be nice to see oncoming traffic as they approach. Thanks in advance for any help or direction you can give me.

Not sure if yours is the same but assume so. My rear camera on the Seneca is adjustable by just loosening a set screw. Then you can move the camera up and down. My side camera's are not adjustable that I can see unless possibly by removing the shrouding.

We adjusted ours today . Tilted it up and the put a traffice cone 4' off the back bumper and put a dot of red nail polish on the screen. This is the blind spot. Next we pulled our car up to the cone. Put a second red spot on the screen. That's one car length so, anthig beyond that is two and the minimum for merging. My next issue is to build a hood yo improve / reduce the glare.

WDW, to reduce the glare on the screen, try a covering like a protective sheet used on a cell phone.

I believe it is a wide angle lens. Object will appear further away and smaller.
I don't think adjustments will help ?
I'm not always right !

Ditto on a visor. I looked and Voyager doesn't make a visor. Guess I'll need to make one as well.
