Camera issue

I recently purchased a Winnebago 30T Adventurer. I was wondering if any other Winne owners have this problem and how you solved it. Before someone says search the threads I've tried and not getting any answer. The rear and side camers seemed to work fine in the showroom but once I got it out on the freeway the rear is no use and the sides are not much better. When I took in to the dealer I bought from they said they could do nothing, that the quality is the best it delivers. Doesn't seem right to me. I checked online to no avail. The back camera is a ASA Voyager. Any help would be appreciated.

Please clarify "the rear is of no use". Does it not work at all, to bright or dark? Not working at all. It may help get some good help for you with a bit more specifics on what is or is not happening.

i have an 06 38t and had to replace both side cameras but all new cameras will be digital and your monitor will be analog so you will have to get the adaptor cable

To clarify, "no use", I mean washed out looking. It's set to the highest resolution and you can see a blur on the screen. In the showroom it looked great.

We have a similar issue on our 2015 Vista. Replaced the rear camera with marginal improvement. Recently had to replace the A/V unit in the dash and the display is somewhat better but still washed out particularly in the bright sun.

Ours had a protective film on the lens, couldn't see it until I got up close to it.

Thanks for the clarification. I am wondering if this may be a dimming issue. On ours there is a "DIM" feature where we can adjust brightness and dimming. Seems to clear up when I adjust it and wonder if that may help?

Also I had to "reset " the cameras once when they hung up when switching. I had to totally depower the camera system and let it reboot. All worked well after that.

In a third instance I lost all clarity in the picture-- all video just went to fog and gray out. I was in a panic as I thought I had somehow destroyed or damaged the cameras. But it turned out it was not the cameras but was the video control system, which is located in the forward brow cap cabinet on ours, overheated in the direct sunlight. All that heat build up in that cabinet area caused the video to go bonkers and totally washed out the picture as you describe. The solution for me was to get that area of the cabinetry cooled down with air flow. The system recovered and all was well. So I wondered if the control area for the videos was somehow often exposed to extreme sunlight and/ or heat build up?

Good luck with the fix.
