I noticed talk of cameras front & rear mainly on the ride commands. How useful are they and what does everyone use them for. What are the advantages?

For me, the cameras are most useful when getting on/off the trailer. Not much beyond that.
A local trail system around me has a trail called the roller coaster. Its a series of steep hills and valleys winding around trees, exposed roots and rocks (think whoops but 10-15ft high or deep) when cresting the hills I couldn't see the proper line or obstacles and I was getting out and check while straddling the top, I would do it this for a couple and said "Wait, that's why I bought the damn front camera" I tried it and it worked well. Sure beats climbing out and walking it. Kinda like a spotter

I do turn it on for loading on the trailer sometimes but using it for to see you blind spot makes it worth it

Just used my rear camera ( newly installed) and it came in very handy during our poker run this past weekend when a rollover happened behind me- and I stopped to help- would not had seen it if I didn't have the camera-

I had it in the on position while riding in the poker run so I could have a clear view who was behind me or going to pass me.... I would have missed it if I was only using the rear view mirror.

I don't have the Ride Command- but have the PMX3 fosgate head unit that's tied into my fosgate system, and can have it on all the time while playing music- so it comes in real handy this way!

I use the rear camera quite a bit backing up (turning around). We ride mountain trails quite often so a lot of trees and rocks to deal with in tight spaces. I suspect I'll use the front camera some down south this winter when playing in the rocks but for now only when pulling in the over packed shop.
