Not difficult at all, remove light above camera mount and camera mount run wire that came with camera up to light making sure polarity is correct otherwise piece of cake. Reinstall fixture caulk and done.

Grand Designs already have the camera mount. All I had to do was remove the cover, pluge in the camera and put the four screws back in. The monitor plugs into the 12 volt outlet and then you plug the trailer to the truck, turn the clearance. Lights and it connects.

I have a wired system on my 40 Travel Supreme. Love the wire system, it did take a little time and effort to plan and install system. My system is old, like 8 years or so and will be upgrading the monitor soon. The cameras are all still very good. Purchased it from Do not necessarily recommend this system, but it has worked for me.

PS to my previous post, question for those who have a wireless system. Are the cameras on the wireless system warm, not hot, to the touch. A friend of my has the wireless system and says there must something wrong with the camera. Any opinions/comments?

The camera should be paired to the monitor camera already from the factory. I plug the monitor camera into the cigarette plug in the cab of the truck for power since I didn't want to hard wire the unit.
On earlier RV's the camera was activated by the back-up lights or the running lights when turned on. On current Grand Design RV's, the camera is always on (you'll see a small blue LED light illuminated on the back of the camera). I use the battery disconnect switch to stop power to the camera when the RV is in storage and always confirm that the blue LED light goes out).
There is a less expensive Furrion back-up camera available but it doesn't provide a good image of what's behind you when going down the road at highway speed d/t a slower processing unit.
This is the unit that I purchased:
That's the one I bought for my Solitude also. Four screws and you're done. Easy peasy. It's nice to see that big blind spot behind you when you're driving.
