  • Prepare tools you may need, including a #2 Phillips head screwdriver, sealant, insulation tape, pencil, and/or a 5/8” drill bit (needed only when drilling a new hole).

Mount bracket

Note: Skip this section if your RV is pre-installed with a bracket for camera installation.

IMPORTANT: Before any installation and wiring operation, remove the key from the ignition and isolate the 12V / 24V power source.

Always seek professional assistance if you are unsure about the installation and wiring operation.

  1. Determine the mounting location on your RV. Ensure that there is no obstacle blocking the camera view. The recommended mounting location is shown below:
    • For rear camera position:
    • At the top center on the rear of your RV and as high as practicable (2” below the red marker light if available).
    • For doorway camera position: Above the top of the door.

Note: The RV shown here is for reference only. You can mount Furrion Vision S products onto various types of RVs such as trailers and Class A/B/C motorhomes.Furrion Vision S Wireless RV Backup Camera User Manual-fig 20

  1. Use the gasket as a template to mark a basic outline on the chosen location with a pencil. Drill a 5/8” center hole. Then route the female connector of the camera power cable through the hole and leave 2 inches of slack.
  2. Connect the bare ends of the camera power cable to the nearest 12V / 24V power supply.
    • For rear camera position: You are suggested to share the same power line from the nearest marker light (such as the red marker light at the top center on the rear if available).
    • For doorway camera position: You are suggested to share the power line from your RV porch light (or the nearest light source from the RV/trailer battery).

Note: Ensure that the fuse on the connected power line provides an additional 1A fusing current for the camera. Ensure proper cable isolation for all bare ends (e.g., by using insulation tape).

  1. Fix the gasket and bracket with four #6×3/4“ flat self-tapping screws. If the mounting surface is uneven, apply sealant between the gasket and RV surface, and around the 5/8” holes at the screw locations for better sealing.Furrion Vision S Wireless RV Backup Camera User Manual-fig 21

Mount camera
If this camera comes in a bundle with a Furrion Vision S monitor, it is paired with the monitor by default. You can connect it to the female connector on the Y-type power cable of the monitor and resume power temporarily to check the pairing status before installation. If you cannot find the video of the camera on the monitor screen or you have an unbundled camera, see the monitor installation and usage section for the pairing procedures.Furrion Vision S Wireless RV Backup Camera User Manual-fig 22

  1. Mount the antenna onto the camera securely and keep the antenna straight.
  2. If there is a cover on the bracket housing, remove it first. Connect the female connector of the camera power cable to the male connector on the back of the camera, and put the redundant cables inside the bracket housing. Then attach the camera to the bracket with four #4×1/4” self-tapping screws.Furrion Vision S Wireless RV Backup Camera User Manual-fig 23
  3. Adjust the view angle of the camera by rotating it upwards and downwards (0~50°) so that you can see: (For rear camera position): the bottom edge of your vehicle and the road conditions behind; (For doorway camera position): the bottom edge of the door.

IMPORTANT: Before any installation and wiring operation, remove the key from the ignition and isolate the 12V / 24V power source.

Always seek professional assistance if you are unsure about the installation and wiring operation.

  1. Determine the mounting location on your RV. Ensure that there is no obstacle blocking the camera view. To avoid drilling new holes, you are recommended to replace the original marker lights with Furrion products directly as shown below:
    • For rear camera position: Location of the original rear marker light at the top center on the rear of your RV. To accommodate the camera, ensure that there is at least 7.5” space between the central points of the two adjacent marker lights.
    • For side camera position: Location of the original side marker lights (as front as possible).

Note: The RV shown here is for reference only. You can mount Furrion Vision S products onto various types of RVs such as trailers and Class A/B/C motorhomes.

  1. Remove the original marker light from the corresponding location.
  2. Connect the bare ends of the power cable on the back of the bracket to the nearest 12V / 24V power supply: red_camera/ brown_marker light: +; black_grounding: –
    • For rear camera position: You are suggested to use the power line for the original rear marker light directly.
    • For left/right side camera position: You are suggested to use the power line for the original side marker lights directly.

Note: Ensure that the fuse on the connected power line provides an additional 1A fusing current for the camera. Ensure proper cable isolation for all bare ends (e.g., by using insulation tape).

  1. Secure the gasket and marker light bracket onto your vehicle using four flat head #6 x 3/4” self-drilling screws. If the mounting surface is uneven, apply sealant between the gasket and RV surface, and around the 5/8’’ holes at the screw locations for better sealing.

Mount cameras (right side shown)

  1. Reattach the camera to the marker light bracket. Before fixing the camera, check its pairing status with the monitor by resuming power temporarily. If you cannot find the video from the camera on the monitor screen or you have an unbundled camera, see the monitor installation and usage section for pairing procedures. For the rear camera, mount the antenna onto the camera securely and keep the antenna straight.
  1. For the left/right side camera, ensure that the lens on the camera faces backward after installation, with the MONITOR PAIRING button at the bottom.

For the rear camera, adjust the view angle of the camera by rotating it upwards and downwards (0~50°) so that you can see the bottom edge of your vehicle and the road conditions behind it.
