Been using Rearview Safety for three years. Great reception. One camera on my Gen box in truck, to see the hitch. The other is mounted to roof ladder of Montana. Great system, image is great, day or night!

I have found the side camera are a poor investment. Mine do not work as I expected and I would not do them again. I have all three hard wired to the truck.
I really use the rear camera and the audio on it.
Good luck and safe travels.

I have the Rearview Safety Cameras on mine. (sorry no pictures) I have the three camera system, all hard wired. I have them all wired hot. Use the rear camera as a rear view mirror going down the road. The side cameras I used mostly when I am backing into a spot of leaving. I like the system.

The cameras can be wired so that they only work when you are backing or turning left or right. I find the rear camera works good for moving back into the lane after passing. I know just how far back a vehicle needs to be in the monitor, to move back in the lane.

The monitor, I mount to the windshield, with a suction mount, right by the rear view mirror.

The monitor and multiplexer take a little adjusting, to get the cameras in the right orientation.

On my new truck, if there is a major engine problem the whole cab comes off. So I have quick connects rigged up, so I dont end up with cut wires at the dealer.

I have the rear view back up camera. It is priceless when backing into places, changing lanes quickly in heavy city traffic and monitoring movement of my bikes on the hitch. Side cameras are a matter of preference but I am comfortable with just using my truck mirrors and the broad view they give me. The only problem I had with my camera (twice) was it burning out. I later found out Keystone "hot wired" the camera so it was on full time even when sitting unhooked from truck. I have since hooked up the hot wire to the truck headlights. This preserves the camera long term. If I am not in heavy city traffic and not carrying the bikes, I often turn off the system too.
