Product Overview

Product Description

The Furrion Vision S Camera System is designed to assist the driver by providing a clear and wide image of the area behind the vehicle whenever the vehicle is shifted into reverse. Never rely solely on this product to ensure the area is clear of children and/or obstructions. Use your monitor and look both ways. This product is not intended to replace existing safety procedures, but rather to add an additional safety tool for your vehicle.

CAUTION: Do not back up your vehicle while watching the monitor screen. Always look in the direction the vehicle is traveling. Use the monitor as an aid to ensure there are no children or obstructions. The image on the monitor is not designed to show distance and may be misleading. The actual distance is less than what appears on the monitor. The range of the image is limited. Be aware of blind spots.

FAQs about Furrion Vision S Sharkfin RV Camera

Why is the backup camera on my Furrion fuzzy?

Its seals most likely failed, allowing moisture to accumulate inside the lens and creating the blockage. To save a little cash, you can purchase the rear camera (#FCN48TASF) alone rather than the complete system.

Can a phone be connected to a Furrion camera?

Using the free SafetyEye app (also known as SafetyCam on Android), you can record video and store still images to your phone or the app by connecting this to your iPhone.

Can you modify the backup camera for Furrion?

Is the camera’s inclination adjustable or fixed? Professional Answer: Grasping the camera firmly and moving it up or down will allow you to physically move it to change the up and down angle.

Are Furrion cameras able to record?

No, videos are not recorded by Furrion cameras.

Why is there blur on my night vision camera?

Internet speed and other factors can have an impact on the quality of Night Vision videos. However, the majority of Night Vision-specific problems stem from infrared light from your camera reflecting off nearby surfaces such as walls, shelves, windows, and window screens. A sizable bright or black ring in the video is one of the symptoms.

Will a backup camera malfunction?

In addition to the concerns listed above, other reasons why rear vision cameras could malfunction or cease operating include humidity, power outages, and software-related issues. For professional assistance in case you’re facing issues with Safety Dave’s reversing cameras, give us a call at 1800 072 338.

Why won’t my reverse camera work?

The power supply malfunctions most frequently. It is nearly always crimped terminals rather than correctly soldered and insulated connections. A broken cable is the reason for about 50% of camera failures. First on the list is the access point to the camera’s back.

Is there a Furrion app?

The Furrion ES operate app lets you use your smart smartphone to operate your DV7200, DV7100, DV3300, and DV1210 stereo.

Is it possible to change a backup camera?

The cost of replacing a backup camera lens, if one is available, usually falls between $50 and $100. But replacing only the lens can be more expensive and time-consuming. The best course of action is frequently to get a brand-new camera.

Could you install a backup camera?

In modern automobiles, a rearview camera is a useful safety feature. But you don’t have to give up if you have an older model. Mel Yu, CR’s automotive expert, argues that mounting a tiny wireless backup camera in the region behind the license plate is the easiest fix.
