My solution was use facetime between two iPhones or between your Mac and iPhone.

Put your iPhone in the iPhone holder and place it at the back of your trailer.

No more expensive wireless back up camera because they never work and cost you hundreds

????? my BC-30 works flawlessly. It's hooked up to the backup lights and when I put the truck in reverse the camera shows up on my GPS screen. Nice setup.

I also Have a BC-20 camera connected to my Garmin. I also seldom use it.
For the most part I can get the job done with my mirrors.

I only have a 21.5 ft. TT but until last week thought that a camera was in my future. It was easy without but I am short in length so that is likely the biggest factor. Oh, it helps to have a helper who knows WHEN to say stop. Now, back up camera on the pickem up truck for hooking up? Worth its weight in gold. Iphones Facetime. Would have never occurred to me but I guess if you have some old cheap iphones... Interesting solution. What about rain?
