Donna: As you can see, it is likely a moot point since I am expecting the system tomorrow. However, it is an interesting design, but I would guess the attachment is so flimsy that it would vibrate incessantly, changing alignment with every shift in the wind and bump in the road. Based on my old extension mirror this one lacks the fundamental physical attributes of: triangulation and stiffness. Look for it to have a short life at Camping World. If it actually works it would be an improvement on the viewing angle of my present setup.
Dan: I would be interested in the review but I don't seem to be able to open it without giving away my life secrets. Is there another form where I could access it?

Since this system uses a wireless signal to transfer the video feed, we
need to advise you that any type of other wireless devices nearby could
interfere with the signal from the camera. Those devices include:
cell phone towers, cell phones currently in use, any bluetooth devices,
wifi routers in you or your neighbors homes. Try testing the device
somewhere that you know there is no wireless interference. Also, the
wireless range for this system is 25' to 30' so any application longer than
that will not function properly, if at all. Also, what kind of vehicle
do you have it on?

It could be possible that since you are using a heavy duty vehicle, the system might not be working properly. We have been noticing that the systems do not work as well on heavy duty vehicles like large pickup trucks or work vans. The reason for this is because vehicle maker’s use 2 to 3 times more metal when manufacturing these vehicles to make sure they can handle the heavy duty work they are going to be put through. Unfortunately, the more metal between the monitor and camera, the harder it is for the signal to get to the monitor. Since it’s a wireless signal, the signal’s strength has to be regulated by the FCC. Once regulated, we could only make the signal so strong. I suggest exchanging the unit for a wired version, as that sounds more suitable for your specific vehicle. We apologize about the inconvenience.
