2006 HR Neptune Camera

I looked at a 2007 HR Neptune and was suprised to see the rear camera also showed right or left side when you turn signal. I thought this was only available on newer MH. Is it possible or reasonable to put this set up on another MH?

I just ordered a color RVS 3 camera system to replace our 1 camera B&W camera & monitor. I think the hardest part will be running the new wires from the camera down thru the rear cap then forward to the console. I've had to fabricate a new center panel as the monitor is 7" diagonal vs. about 9". Then I will have to locate a place for the side cameras. (I have already located the turn signal wires that power them on the steering column.) Wish me luck on the install.
I see I'm just up the road from you (Kirkmont).

We have a 2005 Itasca DP, when we purchased it we asked abut the same thing. what they did was install side cameras, that display thru the back up caMera
when you click up or down on the turn signal lever.
It works very well and never had a problem in 10 years.

thanks for this information so it can be done. Take pictures of you install and how do you access the area overhead ?

"franktr"......Be careful what you wish for. The side cameras can be a pain, especially if you tow a car. Obviously, the side camera comes on when you turn that turn signal on. This is great for looking down the side of your coach, but I never had an issue using my mirrors.

Here is where the problem comes, if you're towing. Once you turn your turn signal on, you loose your rear camera. I've always used my rear camera to make sure my toad has cleared the vehicle I'm passing. Now that my turn signal is on, I can no longer see the toad. If I turn the turn signal off, I get my rear camera back, but now no one knows I'm trying to change lanes. The side cameras just don't give a good enough perspective to tell if your toad has cleared the other vehicle. Mine are fish eyed, which makes it even worse.

When I first got my new coach, I though the side cameras would be handy for backing into tight campgrounds, by showing me the side of the coach that might be in danger. Well.....on my system, the cameras don't change when in reverse. So to use them while backing, I have to put the coach in Drive.

I think they're a neat idea, but just not worth what they offer. If it was easy to disconnect mine, I probably would, but it hasn't been a priority yet.

I know here are some systems that can show all three pictures at once or let you manually choose. That might be a better option. I'm just saying, do your homework before you spend the money.
