LOS ANGELES—TadiBrothers has announced the release of its new quick hitch disconnect system with observation camera and rearview monitor SKU23818.
This new line of quick disconnect truck hitching systems includes a 7-inch rearview monitor, a Bird's eye view RV back up camera and a heavy duty quick disconnect. This system has been designed from the ground up to help drivers hitch a truck or any vehicle to a fifth wheel or horse trailer.
With this system, a camera in the back of the trailer or fifth wheel connects all the way to the front of the trailer with a 70-foot cable. The monitor in the front of the truck connects with a 25-foot cable that reaches the end of the truck in between them. TadiBrothers provides a heavy-duty coiled weather and waterproof cable that allows for a quick disconnect and reconnect from the hitch. These cables also carry enough power to be upgraded to work with up to four cameras.
All of TadiBrothers' backup cameras can be activated when the vehicle is put in reverse, or can be kept on continuously while driving. This feature comes in handy when on the road, so drivers can see what's going on around them while changing lanes or parking their fifth wheels or RVs with ease.
This system was initially designed for horse trailer safety, as TadiBrothers learned that horse owners prefer to see their horses while they're driving down the road.
This product can be found on the TadiBrothers site by searching for SKU23818. It is 100 percent waterproof and weatherproof, and the cameras and monitors are full color with military grade progressive night vision. That means as it becomes darker outside, the camera will automatically adjust to night vision mode. The Automatic night vision saves drivers the aggravation of fumbling around and looking for buttons to activate the night view.
TadiBrothers has been selling observation cameras since 2003.
