My 2018 Cyclone 4200 comes prewired for back up camera. What is the best system to install in my coach? Should it be wireless? Where can I find a schematic for the wiring?
I think most of the folks here will agree the Furrion Observation camera/monitor is one of the best.
I just installed mine two weeks ago and used it for the first time over Memorial Day Weekend. I was blown away! It worked flawlessly at 70mph.
I was NOT pre-wired. Install took about 20-25 minutes. I just popped out the rear lights...measured for the hole and snaked wires inside. Took power from rear lights and was done.

Thanks for all your input, I talked to Furrion direct and was advised to get the observation model FOS48TA-BL. Heartland sent me a link to furrion as well. Found a good deal on Amazon for it. I will advise you all as to how it works out when I install it. Thanks again
I installed the same camera in my RV. Mine would occasionally loose connectivity but it would reconnect within a minute. I replaced the antenna based on recommendations here, it only cost $10 and now it works flawlessly. If you have any problem with loosing the signal be sure to come back and post here and I'll give you the information on the replacement antenna. It was a breeze to replace, unscrew the old one and screw in the new one in, that simple.
Here's the antenna I saw recommended here:

We added it, just because we already have a lot of electronics going on on the truck. You can see it on the back here:
I added a little plastic clamp to hold it upright close to the rig. Don't know if it's really needed.
Same here, I'd like the info on the antenna, thanks
