In my experience common sense seems to prevail on this one as my MH's have passed their MOT's for the last 4 years with dash cam and sat nav still stuck on the wind screen.
I believe that you can dispute an MoT outcome including advisories with DVSA - they will arrange a reinspection and if found that the original one was incorrect action will be take aginst that centre - including cancellation of their approval or retraining whichever is required....
Worth looking into IMO.
This website explains BUT it does not talk about advisories only ones that have failed but should not and those that have passed that also should not.....
You probably knew that anyway but others might not....
I am currently in discussion with Halfords because on my cars MOT they put an advisory note on it saying that an under tray is fitted so some components could not be inspected. DVSA’s website says such an advisory should NOT be made if the under tray is an original factory fitment (Which it blindingly obviously is)
Also had an advisory “Brake discs developing wear lips” but told when I picked it up the wear was minimal (which I knew) and I needed to do nothing about it!!
DVSA says advisory’s should be issued in respect of items that are close to, but not bad enough to warrant a fail and won’t last till the next MOT??
I have emailed Halfords asking for a detailed explanation, no reply as yet (MOT was last Thurs)

|jiwawa||What was the reasoning given for the reversing camera being programmed to not work by selecting reverse gear?|
|terencepaul||Thanks for your replies, very interesting. I should add that I am in Spain but the MOT here has been quoted a few times following the UK change of rules on the MOT over there. I do not know how easy you can connect a camera to work from the reverse gear being selected. It's not a big deal to just put it on yourself manually but seems strange if it was immobilised for the MOT over here on a relatively newer type of motorhome.|

There should be nothing on the windscreen wiper swept area. This includes monitors, satnavs, emission zone discs, club stickers etc.
Of course if your rear view monitor is set back on the dash it's not on the screen is it?
|rayc||I am assured that this is legal|
My MH has full vehicle approval with the factory fitted monitor fitted on the side to the drivers right hand side by the pillar. If push came to shove then I am sure that the DVSA would instruct the MOT station to not fail it in that position.
The MOT manual says:
"Where items are present in the drivers view -such as a sat nav, air freshener etc- that would justify a Reason for Rejection, the tester may, at their discretion, remove the items prior to the inspection. Original vehicle design characteristics are to be accepted."
As for not being activated by reverse gear that is just cost saving
