Backup camera

There was a thread last month on backup cameras. I bought the 7" Zerox and had little to no reception 50' to back of TT. Sent it back for a refund and bought a 4.3" Furrion and it works perfectly with real-time display. The 7" was very nice and I have to strain to make out the 4.3" but it works without interruption.

Your choice, I just would not buy the Zerox at about 1/2 the price.

I will be using the EchoMaster Intellihaul setup integrated into my GMC infotainment system. To help the reception issue, I am going to run a 25' SMA cable from the back of the camera to the front of my trailer and mount the antenna there. Bringing it much closer to the truck cab and receiver as well as removing a lot of the aluminum bodied trailer from the signal path. If your camera has an external antenna, it likely uses the same connector type and something similar should be possible to help with reception.

I had one of these in my 2010. Used a Ram X mount. Will hold phone or screen

I have been getting good stuff from this company for a long time:

https://www.proclipusa.com/

Makes it easy to mount stuff just about anywhere and they have adapters to accept common size ball mounts like Garmin

This is the mount I came up with for my F-150 and the Furrion Observation Monitor. The modular system is a combination of the dash bracket from BuiltRight Industries and bits and pieces from RAM Mounts. Works really well. I can also mount my GPS beside the Monitorl

Where's the pictures?


Here is pictures of my mount I just installed. I haven't installed the camera yet, but will do the next good weather day.

I have the Furion Observation model. I use the suction mount to mount it right directly underneath my rear view mirror. It does not interfere one bit with my ability to drive and being a creature of habit I look towards the general area of the rear view mirror when I want to see what is behind me.
