Several months ago we installed the Haloview 7” Wireless Range Dominator System on our 5th wheel. (See the blog here – Haloview RD7 Backup Camera). We were so impressed with the quality of the system and the simplicity of installation that we planned to expand the system to include front and side RV cameras. Haloview contacted us and provided us with these cameras to evaluate. The video below shows the installation of both the Haloview Wireless RV Side Marker Light Cameras and the CA109 Wireless High Definition License Plate Camera.
Haloview Wireless RV Side Marker Light Cameras
The installation of the RV Side Marker Light Cameras could not have been easier. I took the extra step to ensure I had ample voltage to the cameras replacing all of the markers with LED bulbs. Although Haloview did not make this a requirement, by replacing all of the incandescent T-10 bulbs reduced the power from 5 watts to 1.7 watts increase available power to the new marker light cameras nearly 3 times.
In less than an hour, I removed the existing left and right marker lights located near the front of the 5th wheel, reconnect the power wires to the new side marker light cameras and called this step of the project complete.
CA109 Wireless High Definition License Plate Camera
Haloview also provided a license plate camera to install on the front of our Ford F-350 truck. The camera bracket provided will fit any generic license plate, but I opted for more of a factory installation. I took the extra step of installing the camera in the front truck grill and powering the camera by splicing power wired into one of the truck parking lights. This gives us the ability to use the camera when towing the 5th wheel or uncoupled while we are touring an area. The preference for this factory look increased our effort from a simple 1 hour installation to 4 hours, but the final results worked great and looked fantastic.
Using the Haloview Digital Wireless Rear View Monitor
The Haloview M7108 7″ 720P HD Digital Wireless Rear View Monitor is the star of the show. This wireless monitor has an extremely simple interface to configure as well as operate making the cameras installation a breeze. Two methods are available to view the camera, using the SELECT button to switch from camera to camera or connecting the provided auxiliary cable connecting to the trucks left and right signal wires. For time reasons, we opted to use the SELECT button for now, but will add the signal leads at a later date. See the video below for a more in depth review of the Haloview M7108 Monitor.
The power of the Haloview system is its ability to adapt to any type of an RV. For those who have smaller campers or Class C motorhomes, a simple rear wireless camera and monitor can be installed in a few hours. For those of us who have much longer RVs, there are wired and hybrid wired/wireless solutions to increase your view of the road and ensure video quality.
