We used the Peak PKCORB camera setup to view out the back of our Scamp
Here is an update we posted recently after installing the same camera in our Escape
UPDATE -Some time ago we posted about interference problems when using our Peak PKCORB camera as a full time rear view camera. After some fiddling around we were successful and, for a couple of years, used the Peak PKCORB with our Scamp
5er with only some occasional interference. So it was good enough to keep using, which we did.
However, we recently sold our Scamp
and purchased a 2008 Escape
5.0. The distance that the camera must transmit the signal is basically the same as it was in the Scamp. We have the same tow vehicle and we set everything up exactly the same way. And have discovered that the camera works REALLY well with the Escape. The only difference seems to be that the Escape is not lined with Reflectix the way Scamps are. Our Escape does not have the extra insulation which would mean there was a layer of Reflectix lining the trailer.
So, if you are using this setup with a Scamp it just may be the Reflectix which is the culprit. Not sure if removing a small piece at the nose of the trailer and placing the transmitter there would fix the interference...
BTW, if we don't have the camera hooked up, we WILL pick up local TV stations on the monitor....
