Brackets are supplied by the camera manufacturer. Check with them. I am surprised Fleetwood or your dealer didn't point you in the right direction. Another approach would be to sand the bracket, re-paint and re-install.

I took mine off cleaned & sanded then sprayed with Rustoleum primer and about 6 coats of white on top of that. It's been several years now, still looks good.


Happy RV'ing!!

Sand it, coat it with that common chemical that changes rust back to metal. Around $5 a quart at home depot. In the paint department. Can't remember the chemical name. Probably the same stuff mentioned above that they're getting $80/qt for the name.

Re-sand, prime & paint with Rustoleum as mentioned.

I wish I could tell you the name of some rust remover a friend of mine got. It takes rust off his old cars he is restoring. biggest draw back is the stuff costs $80 a quart.

Is your camera (and bracket) simply fastened to the rear wall of your RV, or is it recessed into the back somehow?

If it's surface-mounted, then it probably used the standard camera bracket --which you can get from an outfit that sells your camera model. If it is recessed into the wall of the coach, then its going to be a Fleetwood piece

Tim @ RV Cams (linked) should be able to help you if you can't fix what you've got. I've never used him personally but I also have never heard a bad word said when he's mentioned here and other places.
