I just completed the installation of a rear view/back up camera in my 4087. One of the downsides of boats with sundecks or objects on the stern of a boat is limited view of the area around the stern while backing the boat.

The tough part was finding a route for the cable. I mounted the camera on the rear edge of the sun deck roof(see picture). I routed the cable using a fish tape and nylon cords through the sun deck roof to the supporting structure down through the rear hanging locker, then through the AC/DC power panel, behind the built in couch and through the battery switch panel to the lower helm.

I used RVS Systems model RVS-770613N. It gives a panoramic view of the stern on a monitor with . It also provides a great view at night (see attached pictures).

The unit comes with a camera, control unit, 7" display, remote control, 66' of cable (camera to control unit), adapter cable to connect to a video monitor and detailed instructions. They have many systems to chose from. The one I bought is at: www.rearviewsafety.com/products/backup-c...-trailer-rv-cam.html

That's a nice setup you installed. Does the remote control rotate the camera up and down and to the sides? That would also be handy to see boats approaching from the rear. I didn't know there is a void space in the hardtop over the sun deck. Does the void space go around the perimeter of it?
Thanks, Cliff

Thanks! No, the remote only controls the display options.

I only needed a camera that I could use to help be see the stern while backing. You will need to find a different solution if you want or need a camera that pans and tilts.

Yes there is a void in part of the sun deck hardtop and it does go around the perimeter from port to stern to starboard. Cables and wires can be routed in this void.
