I want to put a furrion backup camera on my Riverside retro 189r trailer what is an easy installation camera or do I need to take it in to a dealer to have it installed. All suggestions welcome

We installed a Rear View Safety brand model on our 195. The installation was not too tricky. I'd think the Furrion mechanics/set up would be very similar. If you've done something along the lines of a DIY car stereo/tape player install and you're confident enough to drill a 3/4 hole in your trailer wall, it is within your powers to accomplish.

Thankyou, so I have a drill for that. I'll watch a urine video

I'll be looking for a camera soon also. Was just taking a close look at my 2020 193 camera mount. Took a couple of pics but they came out to dark in the bright sun. May try again later. There is a rubber tab in the middle of the mount with wires behind it. On the upper right there is a round plug you can pull out that appears to be a plug in location, once again could not see clearly in the bright sun. Might want to get on a ladder and inspect it before you commit $$ to a certain one, make sure you have the right type of mount.

Oh yes, the 4 screws holding the mount on were rusty already, going to replace with stainless...

When I bought my 199FKS, I had the dealer install the Furrion system. It has provided flawless performance. At night, it switches to infrared for those late night arrivals at the campground, and it has never dropped out. In fact, when I drive down the freeway that's about 200' behind my house,  the receiver will pick up the camera as I pass by. Mine is simply wired to the running lights on the back of the trailer, as I always drive with my lights on, towing or not.

When the TT is parked in front of the Garage, I switch on the running lights (I added a switch for that), so I can see the Garage door close when coming and going. It also has mirroring options, so you can flip the image so left is left and right is right, just like your rear view mirror. Without that option, a car coming up on your left appears to the right on your screen, which I would find VERY disconcerting. The Furrion is worth the couple of hundred you pay for it, is easy to install with a screwdriver and a little caulk, and requires Zero thought or effort once it's in.

I just had the dealer install a Furrion observation camera on my 2018 177SE. Around $200 for installation but it was worth it for me because the trailer did not come with a mount and I was nervous about drilling a hole in the outer skin to mess about with electrical wiring of which I haven't the faintest clue. I asked them to connect to the middle running light so the camera is always on as I drive with my headlights always on when towing. A note when it comes to placement is Furrion advises to not go right at the top of a light or you'll get fogging from the light. The dealer put mine between the running light and the Retro decal.  Seems a good spot.
