Back up cameras

I have a 2019 Cougar 24SAB. Does anyone have input as to back up cameras.
Are they a good idea? What type? etc.

Hi Eric,
If you go into the Technical Forum on the main page there are current threads on cameras. Lots of information there.

I bought this camera and my dealer installed it for free as part of the deal when I traded campers this spring: Furrion 381556 FOS48TAPK-BL... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010XWNFOM?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

Overall I'm happy with it. The display connects easily and the video is good. You see what you need to see when you are backing into a spot, but I wish it had a greater depth of field when I'm on the road. You don't see traffic behind you during the day, unless they are right on your a**. But at night you do see their headlights.

Buy an inexpensive back-up cam, online. Use pipe strapping to mount it on your rear bumper, in a way where you can easily remove it with wing nuts. Consider attaching a vertical arm to the bumper to elevate the cam for a better view. I use bolt-on spare tire mounts. Get a long combo cord for the video and power feeds. Tuck the cord under your RV, using your intelligence to keep it snug and non-binding. Have it end at your tongue jack. Mount an inexpensive monitor on your dash. Run wires to the rear of your tow vehicle. Use your cigarette lighter/12V supply outlet to power everything. I've wired three vehicles with cams. Easy as pie, once you do one. Total cost for one: Around $50. I would never tow my RV without the rear-view cam on. I see the same view, just about, as I would with a rear-view mirror. Also, consider installing your own backup lights, if you don't already have them. Great for backing up at night. FWIW, I'd avoid wireless cams. My wired units never give me the problems I've read about for wireless rigs.
