So, I backed up slowly until I heard the backup beeping sound and I actually went over the edge of the safety area, resulting in a couple of small dings in the right side of the bumper where it contacted a wall. If the camera image had been clear as it normally is, this would not have happened. Also, I assume that if I had stopped at the first sound of the beeping warning , it also wouldn't have happened.
After the incident, I proceeded to drive home where I discovered my new dings. Today, I drove the Flex and got the same fuzzy screen in reverse. I got out and wiped the lens off and instantly, my normal backup image was back. Before the incident, I drove in wintery weather (snow and mud splashed on the rear popup door.)
My advise is to carry a rag for wiping off the camera lens if you're driving on wintery roads where the camera lens can get splashed on. Next time I see anything like my fuzzy screen, I'm going to get out of the vehicle and wipe the lens off (especially a night).
While my dings are not bad, I may take the vehicle into my body shop to make them go away. I just hate to see dings on my vehicles.

Interesting idea! However, I don't think my problem was caused by water as much as it was cause by all the dirt and mud in the snow hat was splattered off the road and on to my backup camera lens.
