This Is The Furrion Camera Your RV/Trailer Is Pre-Wired For

Which Furrion Camera Do I Need For My Pre-Wired RV or Trailer?

Furrion is the most used backup camera by RV manufacturers. A lot of the newer trailers, 5th-wheels, and RVs come “pre-wired” for a backup camera. This means there is a bracket and a power cable waiting for you to install a camera onto. Normally the manual will tell you what brand of camera the pre-installed bracket is compatible with or it will say right on the bracket cover. If it doesn’t you can check out this list to help you find out what camera your pre-wired RV or trailer is compatible with.

Furrion sells a few versions of RV backup cameras, ones for pre-wired trailers and ones for installing a backup camera yourself. If you have a pre-wired RV or travel trailer you want this Furrion

Furrion Vision

The Furrion vision S comes with a backup/rearview camera, a protective fin cover (may already be installed on your RV or travel trailer) and a 4.3 inch monitor. There is also a 5 inch and a 7 inch monitor available. The monitor comes with a windshield or a table mount.

  1. I have a FOS48TA-BL system it has worked well up till this year. Now it has stopped working goes in and out. More out than in. Have unpaired and paired did nothing. The antenna 0n the camera came a part. Wonder if that might be the problem. Is there an extension to get the antenna above the camper. really like the camera alot. had it for Three years. hope you can help.

    • It seems like this is a common issue with wireless backup cameras. After some reading, it looks like most people add a larger antenna to both the camera and the monitor inside the truck. You should be able to add this antenna (click to view on Amazon) to the camera part and this antenna (click to view on Amazon) to the monitor in the truck, the bottom of the antenna is magnetic so you can just place it on top of the cab.

      If you don’t want a large antenna on your truck you could try the new camera antennas first and go from there.

      Hope this helps.

  2. Have a furrion back up camera
    Have it on back of travel trailer but will not pair to screen.
    When close to each other will pair
    Again will not pair when backup camera is installed on back of rv
    Suppose to be ready to go but wont pair.

    • Hi Kimberly,

      That is a common problem with wireless backup cameras. One thing you can do is add better antennas to both the monitor and the camera. Antennas like these will work with the camera (click to view on Amazon) and this antenna (click to view on Amazon) will attach to the monitor and sit on the cab of the truck. Make sure the antennas you add to the camera are secured to the trailer, they are longer than what comes with the camera and may not be as resistant to the wind.

  3. just bought a 2021 coachmen chapparal and the Furion camera bracket doesn’t fit . what can i do? Camper World won’t take back the expensive unit since we opened the box

    • Hi Melhaine,

      If I were you I would remove the pre-mount bracket on the back of your Coachmen and replace it with the new camera and bracket. Your new camera should have also come with a new mounting bracket. As far as the power plug goes you can cut the plug off and wire the electrical wires together directly. Make sure you use lots of caulk around the edges of the new bracket to waterproof everything when you are done.

  4. just bought a pre-wired 5th wheel with Furron brade. do i have to buy the furron name brade camera and monitor kit to go with it. i hate to pay for a name.

    • Hi Kim,

      The mount and electrical plug that are on your 5th-wheel are only compatible with the Furrion backup camera. But, you can technically use a different brand of backup camera like any of these (click to view article) if you are willing to remove the Furrion mounting bracket and replace it with the one that comes with the new camera. You will also need to cut the plug on your trailer and wire the new camera to the bare wires.

      If you do this make sure you use plenty of butyl tape (click to view on Amazon) and RV sealant (click to view on Amazon). The new bracket needs to be sealed so no water can get into your 5th-wheel.

  5. We were prepared to purchase a fury on camera system for our RV. We were reading the comments and there were several that stated if your toe vehicle is newer than a 2018 it may not work because of electrical issues. Does anyone know anything about this? Really appreciate some input .Thanks

    • Hey Renee’

      Thanks for the heads up about this issue. It looks like it’s mostly a problem with newer Chevy and GMC vehicles. The 12V power being supplied isn’t strong or clean enough to run any backup camera without a booster/filter.

      Furrion currently hasn’t made a booster for this issue but the RV backup camera brand Haloview has. If you drive a new GMC or Chevy or your tow vehicle just isn’t supplying enough power to your RV backup camera the fix is to use the Haloview Backup Camera (click to view on Amazon) with this 12V booster/filter (click to view on Amazon). If your RV has a Furrion pre-wire you will also need this adapter (click to view on Amazon).

      So far it sounds like it’s only an issue if your tow vehicle is a Chevy or GMC.

      Thanks so much for the comment. Let me know if you have any other questions.
