I've got pretty thick skin, so I can handle the ragging lol. Again, I'm not familiar with the systems used by Jayco for monitoring the camera system. We use Zone Defense cameras which are made to be used with the Zone Defense backup systems. I would think that there is some type of setting that could be adjusted in the radio/monitor to change the delay of whatever triggers the cameras on your coach.

Greyhawk, we only provided the mirrors for Jayco. We do offer a mini-side camera that mounts to the body of the coach; it just was not spec'd out to be used by Jayco.

My 2 cents.

I have had my Jayco Greyhawk for 3 years and have no issues with mirrors or cameras. The backup camera did get wet once and was hard to see, but that's what the wife is for.

I agree about the delay in the camera coming on when indicating, but as someone else stated, I don't use it for lane changes I relay on my own eyes.

Cameras

The cameras are certainly an issue, we've already replaced the rear view camera once because it stopped working in the dark. Now the new one has quit working in the dark also... sigh

It's close to useless anyway, as it only works in reverse... even though the manual clearly states that all you have to do is push the power button to get it to come on.

Found out at the Jayco Factory that it got wired to the back-up light power, instead of an always hot wire from the battery. Another thing that's on my list to fix (like the inverter outlet turning off when the ignition is on - at least THAT was an easy fix).

Very frustrating!

Interesting that the wiring is different between the model types. My Rig is a 2015 Greyhawk and the camera is definetly on a hot wire. I use the rear camera full time when driving without issue. I did have to make some adjustments in the Jenssen settings to allow me to do that though.

There is one problem with it that I found, the mounting bracket is to short so you can't get the full range of motion on the pivot point because the bolt on the back of the camera makes contact with the bracket. As it stands I have a beatiful view of my bumper and the hood of my toad. My next mod will be grinding a corner of that bolt off so I can get the tilt I want out of the camera and be able to see the horizon behind me.

FYI, the only cameras that come from Ramco are the lower convex cameras, not the rear cameras.
