  1. Hi, I used the Reese 20142 7-Way adapter. $24.45 on Amazon. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I received the accessory trailer camera assembly today. I plugged in a LED trailer adapter (has resistors to fool the truck into thinking a trailer is attached). I plugged the camera in, started the truck and it works fine. I turned off the truck and plugged in the equinox camera and there is still a blank screen. Either the camera is defective or it isn’t compatible with the truck. After looking at the camera it does look like the equinox camera must be water resistant on it’s own. Hopefully someone else posts if they are able to get the equinox camera to work. Sent from my
  3. The camera does not look waterproof. I think it would need to be installed in a housing. On the other hand it is much less expensive for the interior if I can get it to work. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I just ordered the GM Trailer Accessory camera assembly yesterday. I received an order confirmation email yesterday but no ship date. I will plug it in when it arrives and I’ll find out if the blank screen problem I’m having is because of a blown fuse, etc or if the Equinox camera doesn’t work with the truck. Of course the Equinox camera may be defective as I bought it from eBay... Either way, I have a few trailers that could use a backup camera. I’ll post here after the new one arrives with the results.

  5. Do you have more than one pair of polarized sunglasses? Try another pair. The HUD works as a reflection off the windshield so most good polarized lenses should significantly dim the display. A good test is take the glasses off and hold them in front of your eyes and rotate them. The HUD image should get brighter and darker. If the image stays the same the sunglasses lenses aren’t really polarized. Sorry OP, I don’t have an answer for your question but hope you have it sorted out by now.

  6. I was able to purchase the Equinox camera and a Fakra cable. When I plug it in the truck recognizes there is a trailer camera plugged in but the video is just black. I’ve tried both the interior camera port and the exterior camera port. Not sure if this is a camera incompatibility but I will search if there could be a fuse problem.

  7. I went from a 16 2500 Denali to a 20 2500 AT4 and I kept the same drop hitch. I just remembered that means the 2020 must be a couple of inches higher as I had drop shackles on my 2016 and stock ride height on my 2020. I am picky about having my trailer(s) level and the 8 inch drop works well with my utility trailer. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I haven’t sent a CEL using an iDash on my 2020 Duramax with around 25,000 miles. I did get a notice on the infotainment screen that a software upgrade was available. I selected Yes and the update failed. I tried the update 3 different days and it failed each time. This morning I unplugged the iDash before updating and it installed the update without an error. I plugged the iDash back in and both the iDash and the truck have been working fine. Maybe the truck checks if something is plugged in the OBDII port before updating?

  9. Have you had any luck with this camera? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. The blinky LED thing is your alarm system. It pulses the lights and checks the amperage. If it doesn’t sense the trailer lights the alarm goes off. In the setup menu system for your trailer I think there is a setting to turn off the alarm... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I have the single mount. The cable runs inside the mount. No cable visible. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. I haven’t had a CEL with my iDash. I have noticed that my monthly OnStar report now says communication has been blocked by an after market device plugged in the OBD2 port. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Hi, I looked up my invoice. The new pad part numbers are: 84702753 (S) Pad Kit 84571661 (S) Pad Kit I have a long gravel driveway and my brakes will still squeal for the first stop or two but it’s much better than previously. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Look at sealberta’s idea. Use a relay to power your lights switched with the signal from the cargo lights but have the power come from the battery or fuse box. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I have the Diamondback. I really like it and would buy another. I also have a Slide-Master aluminum bed slide that makes access to the bed easy. I did have a Paragon cover in the past. It was a multi-fold cover made of aluminum that was quick to remove, locked and could accommodate a gooseneck. The drawbacks were that you could not put anything heavy on it and you needed to be careful what you put in the front of the bed if you didn’t have a bed slide drawer as anything tall in the front of the bed blocks the Paragon from opening. All my trailers are bumper-pulls so I don’t need the goos
