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

  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.

    • 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.
