Hereís our Blackvue mounted to windshield with 3m tape that comes with the camera. Cord runs straight down where the Roaming Gnome holds it while we travel. Power comes from switchable three outlet power center that I hard wired into supply for factory twelve volt outlet. Cord and camera stays clear of shade / visor and lowering shade does not obstruct camera. Power center (and roaming Gnome) are secured with double sided tape. No issues in over 40,000 miles.
Based on this discussion I am considering mounting a second camera to view the left side mirror. I think a suction mount on the forward window of drivers side slide might work. Just have to remember to remove it before deploying slide.

Happy travels

I mounted mine up high in the black out shaded area of the windshield. I ran the cord over the top of the shades and into the cabinet over the driver thru a whole Newmar had and into a 110 volt to 12 volt converter. Plenty of 110 volt outlets in the area.

We mounted ours down low just above the wipers, but in their swath so it is a clean windshield in the rain. I had Newmar install a 12v outlet in the center of the dash for it, they usually have plenty of wire to hardwire into a fuse panel or pick up 12v somewhere else.
Didn't even think of that, thanks! I'll probably mount mine like yours and run the wires around and under the dash to a switched outlet

Another great idea. Thanks!

I think I-75 was built in the mid 70s and 80s and the speed trap area has always been south of SR72.

Let me just comment one more time about the lack of FHP enforcement, because other than a trooper was unable to respond to the OPs crash it has nothing to do with the original post.

Being a retired Troopers from another state I have always supported FHP and lobbied for them whenever I can. They are extremely hard working for about the lowest pay in the nation. If you think they are out there in force or you think there are enough of them then you either are not listening to the news or you are listening to the wrong news my friend.

In the past few years since I have been a Florida resident their numbers have slipped about 20%. This is not safe for them or the citizens of Florida. Accordingly enforcement has slipped about 20% during a time when Florida's population has exploded. If you don't believe me read the above article or do the research yourself.

I really wish it would have been FHP. They sent a county cop that really didn't seem like she wanted to be there.

I wonder if there is an easy way to tap into the side and back camera feed of the MH? If that's somehow accessible it wouldn't be too hard to record the stream. That would go a long way to prove who's at fault.

Oh I would agree that FHP (and all LEO) are under staffed. What I was stating is they usually have a speed trap just south of SR 72 in the median.

Now THAT is something I would be interested in. Newmar, are you listening?

Is there any presedent in using video camera imiges to prove fault ?

Anyone show them to a LEO and have fault assigned or taken them to court or your insurance co. ?

In Fl, being a no fault state, video would be helpful to submit to your insurance company to use for reimbursement from the other insurance carrier assuming they have one.

I was wondering the same thing. I have been checking this out. I was wondering if this would work. http://www.stonkam.com/products/DVRs.html

I hear exactly what you are saying. I'm not sure in your crash it would have made a difference in the way it will get written up or not, but certainly in a serious crash with injuries on an interstate highway I would want the State Patrol to do the investigation. I'm not trying to be disrespectful to county or local officer, I was one of them for 12 years prior to becoming a trooper, it is just that they have different priorities and training that troopers.
