A repeat client from Anchorage came back to Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security to get two 2016 Forest River Vibe travel trailer cameras. We had previously worked on his Dodge Ram truck, and he was very pleased with those results. His truck had the factory-installed 8.4” U Connect touchscreen unit in the dash, and we added FLIR night vision cameras at the front and rear of the vehicle. Whenever the client puts his Ram in reverse, he can see clearly behind him, even in pitch-black conditions. To make night-time driving safer, the forward-facing camera can be activated while driving. Now he can clearly see animals, people and other objects in complete darkness thanks to heat-imaging technology. It is truly incredible how much safer you feel with the front camera activated.
Previous Installation Paves The Way For Vibe Travel Trailer Cameras
When we were installing the cameras on his truck, we used an integration module that was designed with the capability to add side view or blind spot cameras. With this information in mind, it was only logical that he would return to add them to his RV. If you have ever towed a larger vehicle, especially at night, you know the unique challenges that present themselves.
Quick And Easy Connection
Our team installed a waterproof quick disconnect plug at the rear of his Ram that provided an easy way to plug the camera system into his trailer. The Vibe was designed like many modern RVs in that it had black trim all over it, so we color-matched all of our channeling to keep with the black theme.
FLIR Technology For Night Time Viewing
We mounted the side view FLIR night vision cameras strategically on the left and right sides of the trailer so they give the driver a clear view of what was beside him. Since these cameras use the same technology as the ones on his truck, they work great even in total darkness.
Integrated Wiring Makes Camera Use Seamless
The module we added to the stock color screen in the dash couldn’t be easier to operate. When the client is driving at night, his normal view will be the front camera. When he turns on his left blinker, his screen switches to show the left camera. After the blinker is turned off, the front camera comes back on. The same thing happens when using the right blinker, so switching to any of the images requires no thought on the part of the driver.
Client Loved The Additional Cameras
When the client came to pick up his trailer, he loved the attention to detail on the install as well as the incredible improvement in safe driving.
