We had the Furion installed by our RV dealer before we could request another brand. (I purchased a Tadi-Brothers unit myself, but too late) My experience with Furion is, it's a poor quality picture on a small screen and find it overall useless. Furion is developing a larger screen set to be in the marketplace this spring. Having a second person on a phone or walkie-talkie helping you navigate your blind backend and using your side mirrors, is better IMO. Anybody interested in a Tadi-Brother backup camera system?

The way that technology changes, I would really look and compare the lines and resolution of the cameras. My rear camera at times gets very "grainy" and the new rigs come now with much higher resolutions and a better pictures quality. Yet my unit is only 2 years old!

The fellow here with the '17 KR F450 has cameras at every angle on the truck & said he could purchase a wireless for the rear of his rv that is integrated into the dash monitor. These trucks are getting soooo smart before long you'll to have 4 year degree in truck operations.

Almost all the high end vehicles have this now - won't be long before they are as standard as rear view cameras are now:

Back up camera

I was told by the dealership that a back up camera cannot be installed on our 2017 31sl model. Due to the configuration of the back roof line and top clearance lights
How or has anyone amounted -are you installing and where?
Tried Furrion model FOS 43tasf and dealership said will not work.

Suggested above inset by back window it would limit field of vision to 120 degrees

Anyone have new suggestions?

My 2017 31SL has the factory installed camera very near the clearance lite. It is the wireless version

As long as you can get wiring fished through those tiny marker lights, you can get your camera up there. You use the marker lights as a means to get the wire to one side and then down around the window.
