RE the KSource 80930 mirrors in the OPs initial post: Having ordered (Jegs) in August I was getting a bit concerned. I found a customer support link on the KSource website and asked two questions: 1) We've had Part number : 80930 on order since September. Is there an expected ship date? 2) Are the OEM mirror cameras functional while these are attached? (An eTrailer employee posted that they were not) Answeres: 1- Our ETD is early or mid January. 2- Your OEM’s camera will be functional. Our snap & Zap comes with a cut on the bottom for those type of mirrors. I'll add that I got a response in a couple hours. Nice service!

I don't know that anyone has actually received them yet. But the pictures I've seen certainly show that the lights and cameras are not covered. This site (expensive) https://www.etrailer.com/Custom-Towing-Mirrors/GMC/Sierra+1500/2020/KS80930.html?VehicleID=202098912#exp-productdetails=.all-description has four views (lower left). And I agree with you about the 95%. I drove my sons 2500 and was shocked by how large the blind spot created by the mirrors was.
Not to mention their shin bones. If I leave mine in I'll be looking for a band aid soon. I love the tailgate.
ETrailer has about anything you could want, some as long as 16". I got this one just Saturday because my old one was 1/2" too short: https://www.etrailer.com/Ball_Mounts/Brophy/BH20.html I had the same issue with my '09.
Hey Daryl, Hopefully they'll get it straightened out. Sucks having something new (and expensive) not work properly. I meant no disrespect to you with my posts. I thought it not good that the service tech was not familiar with the 7-pin hookup and thought you might want to know he was wrong about at least one thing. We're heading out next month for a couple of weeks, 1st trip with the new truck. Fingers crossed it will all work ok. Happy camping!
I think that's pretty common. My '09 was that way. 1) You might need 12v to the trailer and not want to run the engine 2) You can always unplug the trailer when parked without 120v hookup (common practice for some)
That was my initial plan, but those mirrors will probably cost at least $800 apiece (retraction motors, tilt/adjust, dimming feature, puddle lights, camera). I'll see how the $75 a pair clip on ones work, plus all those features will still be there. Worked fine on my '09. I understand that not all trucks have all those features, but it's still going to cost a lot.
