My truck did not have the option to include the sensors. I found them for $75 a set on Ebay. I have 4 trailers. I bought 3 sets. One trailer is rarely used. I will Install them on my travel trailer my dump trailer and my tilt deck. I do have the advanced trailer package and it shows the set up for them. I also only have the tailgate camera. There is no plug for a camera on my truck. There is a trailer view in the camera screen. I have a coax cable under the bumper. If I add the plug will the camera work? I don't need invisible trailer.  just a rear view from the trailer. I only want it on my travel trailer.

I work at a GM store and I am looking at getting a new body Silverado and ran across this issue myself. I want the "HD Surround Vision" camera package, but I am finding out that it isn't compatible wi

@Gypsy1962 did you get any good results after hooking everything up?  I'm in the same boat with the technology package and no aux camera option.

can someone send me pictures of the wiring behind the bumper. Mine did not come with the right plug but i bought one and installed it. i could not find but one wire to hook up. i could not find two wires to hook to cameras. Also i guess the trailer wires have to be hooked up to test.

Mine only has one wire as well. Let us know if it works.

Ok none of the dealers know anything about the camera system. Long story but I will start from beginning. Bought a high end slt with all options. Dealer ordered camera and sent to another dealer. I finally got camera 2 months later. No where too plug camera in, I ordered receptacle and changed out myself. Could not find two wires that would work but found one and hooked to top right looking from rear of truck. Still would not recognize camera. Rewired the trailer where nephew had borrowed and tore wiring off. Trailer was recognized and then camera was recognized. Long three months but it works. Still have not found second wire but I do not haul gold in the inside of trailer. Hope this helps somebody out there since gmc dealers know nothing about this new product. Thanks for rant. Time for a beer!

So is the camera on the middle button at the bottom of the screen? Is it just a backup camera or is it the invisible trailer thing? Enjoy the beer.

Just ended a chat with the owner center.  Their solution: shop dealers service department until you find one that knows something.  Good luck.  My local dealer sent me to Google, therefore I'm a new member here.  I have the camera, but as of yet not installed, and the correct receptacle on my 2019 GMC SLT.  Installation on an Airstream will not be trivial.  Since some of you seem to have gotten the camera to work, can you please tell me the conditions required to check the rear of trailer camera and its view?  Camera plugged in and view selected obviously.  Trailer plugged in and selected?  Truck started and in drive?  Etc.  I'm not mounting the camera until I know it works and the view is good.

I bought a high end LT and it has a 4 pin connector and 7 pin connector. I wanted to swap that receptacle out for one that has the 2 trailer plus and 7 pin plug. I found these wires by the other plug wires behind the bumper. Are these the 2 wires for the camera ports?

Ditrymax - Were you able to add the trailer camera to your truck?  I also have the standard 4 and 7 pin receptacle.
