Hey All,

I'm having an issue with the Furrion 4.3 observation camera I just purchased. The manufacturer claims the camera will work at distances over 250 feet away. When I turn on the camera it works for about 5 seconds then says "no signal". Even when the camera and monitor are only an arms length away without any obstruction it drops the signal. Before I send the camera back I thought I'd ask Y'all if perhaps there is a setup procedure I'm missing. I've tried different antenna angles, etc... and nothing seems to help. Is it just a defective unit and should I try a replacement? Is this a common problem with wireless cameras?

Thanks!

I think it is a common problem with electronics. "DOA" - dead on arrival. When I look at the ratings for a lot of products, and particularly electronics, the one star ratings are often "DOA".


There is something special about camping in an RV.

Did you "pair" the camera to the monitor?

I sent the camera back and re-ordered a replacement. After several re-pairing attempts from just a couple feet away I decided it had to be a defective unit. Especially after reading all the good reviews from others with the same camera.

Should be here by the end of the day!

Thanks!

Hope all is well with replacement camera. i have had the camera on 2 Travel trailers. Current TT is 37ft long. Have had no issues with signal. Very happy with it.
