    Standoff cures Side Running Light/Observation Camera Issue

    Probably not the best (or prettiest) solution but since it's my first "mod" for my new-to-me GD 5er, it's worth a share.
    I recently purchased the 4 camera Furrion pack to help me see around this beastie when we're on the road. All worked well until I looked at the image returned by the passenger side camera. The arm of the awning effectively blocks the view of about 3 feet of the side, greatly limiting it's usefulness. I briefly considered mounting the light/camera as an EXTRA unit rust inside the arm, but didn't to do anything that drastic! So instead I cut off a piece of a 4" fence post with a cap on each end to use as a standoff. I mounted the extra piece using the holes used for for the original running light along with a brace system to keep this thing from flexing.

    Looks like a pretty elegant solution, nicely done! You probably sealed it up better than the factory light too - had to re-seal one of those on our trailer.

    Is it bad that I’m majorly jealous of that garage/storage space?

    Great first post, congrats on the trailer!

    'Tis a nice area ... we have our 337RLS inside, there's space enough to run out all three tip-outs, AND I have an electrical and sewage hookups right there by it.
