When we purchased our new Montana 5th wheel we immediately missed the backup camera we had on the unit we traded. We have been using Haloview RV camera systems for a number of years and had hopes there would be a solution for our Montana. But, we had a challenge. Our 5th wheel is 42 feet long and when coupled to our F-350 we have a distance of 54 feet from the back of the RV to the dash of the truck. Most RV wireless camera systems have an operating distance limit of 33 feet, which has now been remedied with the release of the extended range Haloview Byte Tango 7 RV Cameras. With our Montana 5th wheel prewired for a backup camera, this installation could not have been easier.
Haloview Byte Tango 7 RV Cameras
The new Haloview Byte Tango 7 RV cameras and monitor system was created with a new new-gen wireless technology, which ensures less lag and a more powerful interference-free signal for Interstate driving speeds. Byte Tango Series systems provide interference-free reception for vehicles up to 65 ft. guaranteed even at Interstate speeds, its ideal for fifth wheel, travel trailers, motor homes and commercial trucks.
Haloview offers a number of preconfigured packages from a single rear camera and monitor to a monitor and four camera option with two observation and two side marker cameras.
Installing the Haloview Byte Tango 7 RV Cameras and Monitor
Installing the Haloview Byte Tango 7 RV Camera and monitor to less than an hour. The kit comes with camera, monitor, power cords, various brackets and mounts for the monitor and all the hardware required to install the camera. Provided instructions were well written and easy to follow.
For RVs that are prewired from the factory for a backup camera, the rear camera installation is nothing more than splicing the power wire for the camera to the prewired connection and screw into place. Using one of the provided monitor mounts, I installed the monitor and plugged into a 12 VDC accessory jack. The monitor and camera comes from the factory paired to channel 4 and the backup camera was immediately available. One note, to power the 5th wheel camera requires connecting the RV tow cable to the truck and turning on the parking or headlights.
Once powered, I then set up the monitor for our use. A simple menu allows the proper orientation of the camera view, turning the market lines off or on, setting up recording with an optional micro SD card along with options to pair up to 3 more cameras.
Using the Haloview Byte Tango 7 RV Camera in our travels was great. The 7 inch monitor provided a large field of view for backing up as well as a view when traveling. We discovered the added benefit when driving on busy Interstates seeing the back of the 5th wheel when changing lanes.
Our thanks to Haloview for providing the Haloview Byte Tango 7 RV Camera for our review.
