Also make sure your camera is a observation camera and not just a backup camera. Observation camera can be left on 24/7 and most backup camera will burn out if left on for extended time. A good friend of mine found that out after leaving his backup camera on while on the road after a couple hours.


Some of the cheaper backup cams have a delay in displaying the rear view, which makes them unsuitable as observation cams. The monitor might show nobody there, when in reality there is indeed a vehicle.


Furrion cameras and monitors are the same whether used as a back up camera or an observation camera.


Furrions are not one of the cheaper cameras...

My brother just did this on his camper.
He did not want to drill any holes.
So we hatched a plan to replace is center clearance light with the camera. He got a 1" thick peice of white cutting board (cheap on ebay) and made an adaptor. It attaches to the camper using the existing screw holes, and the camera attaches to the adaptor. A hole in the center is to run the clearance light wiring to the camera. It looks factory, and works great.
