Cloudy side cameras

On my 2013 Canyon Star I noticed both side cameras are very cloudy. We use the RV in the winter in the northeast where our winter roads are salted. My best guess is salt/road grime has damaged the lens covers. Does anyone know how to replace /fix the outer lenses? On TV is see advertisements for head light lense restorer thinking of trying that but wanted to get some opinions...

I suspect moisture inside the cameras clouding the lens. If it was salt or chloride it would also damage the headlamp lens, which face front.

I've got the same issue on my 2014 Canyon Star. Both side camera lenses are cloudy to the point that they are unusable. Has anyone tried polishing them?

I had one side camera failure, I believe due to moisture /water.
So now I used some silicone sealer to close the 2 openings at the top of the
camera housing,but left the 2 bottom holes open. So far the images are clear.

I have a 2009 Ventana with the same issue on my left side camera. I thought it was moisture and took the camera apart as far as I could. No moisture. I compared the lens to the opposite side and the haze did appear to be on the surface. I used a restorer called micromesh and it worked very well. A am guessing that the headlight restorer will work just as well. I hope this helps.
