Is anyone having issues keeping their back up camera clean with all the rain we are having. This is my first vehicle ever to have a back up camera, and while I don't use it that often...it is kinda nice to have. Is there a little plastic cover or clear lense sticker to put over it? Do you use something different to keep the little camera clean and stop it from getting coated in mud or road grime?

You can purchase clear screen protector off Ebay, but there is not much you can do to keep it clean , best case while you thumb over it everytime you get in you truck.
Another method you can try would be rain X or somthing similar, it may or may not help

Yup, agreed. When it's dirty wipe it off. Be careful not to scratch it.

That said...I wonder if there is a better quality plug and play replacement. I think I'll do some googling.

I tried rainx, it didn't help at all. Now I just wipe it off with my finger when I notice it getting hazy every few weeks

Meguiar's hybrid ceramic wax seems to be working pretty good and lasting longer than rainx did. Looks good on paint and trim as well.

I’ve used a solution for fog/water repellent for eye glasses 🤓 for my backup cam. Sold on amazon but now I can’t find it and I would link u to it
