Foggy side view cameras

I have a Voyager rear view camera system with side view cameras used with turn signals. Its a B&W system. The rear camera works fine but the side cameras are foggy. I don't know if it's moisture or something else. I would try taking them off a clean them but don't know how to get them out. Or, maybe they just need replacement. Has anyone had this happen?

Yep, mine were pretty bad. Mine were encased in a camera body which held the outter lens, which was foggy. The camera body is encased inside a painted body blister. The camera lens itself, safe inside the camera body, was still clear. I removed the painted body blister, unscrewed the camera body lens holder and removed the lens. I used 1500 grit sand paper i got at HomeDepot, and then whiped it clean; it wasn'tmuch better. But then I sprayed wd40 on a paper towel, and whiped the lens, and I'm thinking the petroleum in the wd made the lens clear! In the end, what have ya got to lose!

Not really familiar with that camera system, but if the Wd40 doesn't work and you are endd up replacing, I would suggest Rear View Safety

I've used both their backup and side cameras....

TonyMac, how did the outer part come off? I would guess that the lens is replaceable? Camping World quoted around $350 to repair them.

I have side cameras made by Rear View Systems. One of them fogged up. I used the wife's hairdryer on it for a few minutes and it hasn't fogged since. RVS makes a great system, it was just a fluke that this one fogged up, I think eventually I'll have to disassemble and reseal it or just replace it.

That's inventive to use the hair dryer!

I'll give the hair drier a try.

I haven't had a chance to try it. The coach is in Florida. I'll try it when we get back down there.
