Anyone use a wireless rear camera

I am thinking of getting this as it is less expensive than most. It really is not permanent.

Any other ideas?

I think the wired systems are more reliable. What RV is this for? You have a Winnie Vista LX in your profile, but recently mentioned buying a Gulfstream Conquest. Don't they both have camera systems from the factory?

I would like a rear camera that records video like a dashcam, which RV manufacturers do not provide in any I have looked into. But there are problems installing an after-market unit. Finding a good safe place to install it. Making sure it does not fall off. Protection from the weather, especially rain. Wiring it to the house batteries as camera batteries would not last long. Has anyone tried to tackle this job?

I am getting a 2006 conquest ultra. No camera. I may get a wired and have it installed professionally. Expensive but seems essential to me.

Thanks

I installed a wireless in my smaller Class C, it worked pretty good.

I also installed a wireless in my Class A, lower passenger side to work only when I was in reverse backing up to provide a better view of tight spots. It does not get good reception because of the distance. I still have to rely on the rear backup camera up high.

I bought an inexpensive wireless rear camera from Peak. I had it wired so that it is on whenever I turn the headlights on, which is 99% of the time. I bought it to keep an eye on my toad. It works OK. The only complaints I have are that the picture gets washed out in bright sunlight and the picture is prone to interference from various sources such as traffic counters, similar frequency transmissions, etc. I'm sure that more expensive back up cameras address these shortcomings but for the money, I'm happy with this model.

I've been using an earlier version of this wireless system in my 35' coach for 8 years, (50k+ miles),

Voyager wireless, 4-camera RV system. I have their 2-camera wireless system and it is very reliable, never failed once since installation in 2013.

I'm considering one of these small Rand McNally Dash Cams.

I got one from Amazon. Made by Pyle and it works very well and I got just the cam to replace the one that failed on my Bounder and it was only $15 but I wired it. The other I got a wireless video adapter for it to put on roadtrek and it works great also

Lots of great help and thanks to all. I should have been more clear I think.

First, I want a camera that is on when the engine is running or at least when I want it to be. It will be on all the time to monitor my toad and to see beyond that.

Second, I want to mount it high in order to see beyond my toad.

I bought the Voyager wireless unit for my TT and it works very well. Occasionally loses the picture for a few seconds but typically pretty much rock solid. I would buy it again without any second thoughts!

No matter which rear view/backup camera system you choose...how, (and when), it can be "turned on"... and where the camera is located on the RV, is determined by the installer/owner at the time of installation.

Backup Camera Replacement

Scroll down to post #5 in the link above. This is what I did. Correction on the price, it was about $120. Since the camera creates it's own wifi signal, it transmits further than some other wireless cameras. I have the sending unit mounted inside my rear closet (about 38 feet from my dash) and leave the closet door shut with no signal interference. I mounted the camera above my license plate and tied into a hot line used for a motorcycle lift I no longer have.
