Ok, $79.99.

Anyone tried it? I bought one. You plug it into the 12v outlet. Fortunately, my RV dashboard has two, one for cigarette, and one "extra." This way, I can still use my Magellan and the backup camera. It's also supposed to have "night vision."

I'm not planning an RV trip for a couple months, but if anyone has tried this, let up know! If not, I'll give my review.

The package is somewhat misleading. "EASY INSTALLATION." "WIRELESS." "JUST BOLT THE RECEIVER TO YOUR LICENSE PLATE!!!"

Opened the package. Easy, right......... Step 1. "You need a voltage meter to find the positive and negative wires."

Ok, I'm going to make a trip to my RV dealer to let them install it, if they will....... I don't have a volt meter! And I wouldn't know how to figure out which is the positive wire and which is negative.

[b]I would not put a lot of stock in these cheap rear view cameras. They are not waterproof, and I know of several that have failed due to moisture. Inside of the coach is a different installation and is probably the only reliable way to use it.
