Blind spot in front of Montana

When we were staying at RV parks, it occasionally bothered us that we could not see the Super Duty parked, or hooked up to the Monte.
So.... I will be installing a night vision camera, we will have a small monitor near the television, so we will be able to see in front, don't want the Boogie man sneaking up on us.
I have a good video security system in the Casa with a digital recorder. We can monitor the entire area around the house.
I installed this for our upcoming travels, we can monitor the inside and outside of the house while on the road via Internet connection.
I will have a Thermometer in view on one of the indoor cameras.

Ozz .. That sounds like a good idea.... Where do you plan on mounting the camera on front of the Monty?

Lfw, it will be before we leave for sure, I have 8 months 26 days and 19 hrs...
Bill, I think so. I will contact the place we got the system and see if I can get a return camera since we have time.

Ozz.. O.K. sounds like you will have enough time to get the camera installed for sure.. We are leaving in about a month.. so I should have time to mount one.. only thing I do not think the DW would like me cutting a hole in the front of the Monty to mount the camera..Suction cup mount might work.. any other suggestions on a mounting location? An antenna mount would work good.. I guess you could tap into the power wire for the antenna to power the camera..
sounds like a fun project...I like new projects...

You only need a 3/8" or so hole plus a few screw holes, the domed camera doesn't look bad..to me.
I would 'sell' the idea to her based on the added security it would bring, she could see what is going on in front, see when the Schwans truck is headed down your isle..
