So I bought a 2020 2500 HD Z71 last night. The only thing is the blind spot mirror seems to high. Do they tilt at all?  

Not enough IMHO... would love another 1/2" upwards on driver's side

When I asked what the max was a couple pages ago someone said they believed the max was 85.

If someone was good enough to perhaps set up a new trailer profile to confirm the upper end PSI set point I would greatly appreciate it. It just seems unimaginable that GM would manufacture a pickup that could tow potentially 35K #'s. And limit the trailer tire TPMS to an E rated tire.

I just ordered an LT with the advanced trailering package and a primary reason was the trailer tire monitoring. The tires on my fifth wheel are also 110 PSI. I will be quiet disappointed if they only read to 85 PSI.

Thanks in advance for anyone who would check this out on your current truck

Roadrunner I totally agree. Yet some times GM has let us down. I have a trailer that has 6 tires and they are "G Rated" tires. It runs at 110 PSI. I also understand a lot of ranch show horse / cattle trailers are encouraged to run G rated tires AND rims. You can see my tires / rims rated at 110 PSI. I was planning on a new Denali crew cab with a 8 foot bed and fully loaded. But it appears with the labor dispute and the intentional delayed sloooow  Christmas release. Well since it will be so close to the '21 model I may just wait it out. New interior OR old style. See what price breaks will occur.

i set my ttpms sensors up a few nites back but couldn't remember what the max psi choice was and didn't know if they could be edited with out a new set up. they can be edited once set up and the max psi setting looks like a 100psi. mine are set for 80psi with E-rated tires

i couldnt figure out how to edit - what steps? thanks 

first connect the trailer so you can access the app.

pick the"trailers" tab on the top of the screen

push on the pencil next to the connected trailer on the screen.(pic 1)

pick "tire pressure set up" on next screen (pic 2)

pick "next" on the "select number of sensors screen" (pic 3)

pick "next" on "learn sensor screen" (pic 4)

the next screen is where you can edit tire pressures(pic 5)

I am guessing that since your tires are dismounted you upgraded to a more reliable tire before some adverse happened.  Yes the labor dispute has me wondering how long a delivery delay will occur. I placed the order towards the end of August and the dealer said the tentative build date was the middle of October. Allot of variables exist do to the strike. Good luck on our future purchase I agree the interior is a bit dated compared to other manufactures. I can deal with that just hoping it lives up to my expectations performance wise when I hook up to my fifth wheel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well it appears as if GM has created a truck capable of hauling best in class payloads but didn't take into account trailers that carry those types of loads have tires that exceed 100 PSI, quite disappointing to say the least. 100 PSI is close to my tire rating of my trailer tires but 10 psi lost pressure on a hot day could be enough to cause a blow-out which is the whole point of the TPMS system. Perhaps with enough customer complaints they might push thru a software update to correct this shortcoming.  Thanks Jack for taking the time to answer our concerns.

Roadrunner, well I have had them on and mounted to my high pressure rim's. They are rated for G tires due to higher pressure. There is so much that GM does not realize on their truck products. I remember on my '16 so much fanfare on the cell phone charger. There is so much distraction trying to make it work. Yet they also have so much fanfare for the new dually trucks and yet to hold back. I have read the 2020 cameras are not available? Really advertise like crazy and non performer!  So I am frustrated on product delays as well as incomplete research and development. Seems like they have little or no idea on product needs.

The optional camera you were inquiring about.                                                                                                         https://www.shopchevyparts.com/trailering/2020-silverado-2500-auxiliary-trailer-camera-vehicles-with-trailer-camera-package-uvi/84518122-p-92305265.html

The dealerships are way behind the curve in providing information about these new trucks sadly!                                                                                                          https://www.shopchevyparts.com/trailering/2020-silverado-2500-auxiliary-trailer-camera-vehicles-with-trailer-camera-package-uvi/84518122-p-92305265.html

 

 

thanks for the link for the new 2020 cameras. i haven't bought any yet,  i have been waiting for some info on the new 2020 model camera . as you mentioned, not much info here locally either from the dealers. 

 

the details and compatibility of the tpms system and the accessory camera system have been a huge grey area and it seems like we all have to learn as we go.

I can't get my trailer TPMS to sync with the truck, the sensors are working and are readable via TPMS readers at tire shops.  Is there a distance limitation on how far your truck can be away to pickup the sensors?  Even my local GMC dealer was puzzled and wanted me to leave the truck and trailer with them, I declined obviously. But may end up being a day down at the dealer to get this resolved.

Are you sure the TPMS modules in the trailer tires use the right frequency that the truck is tuned for?  It's my understanding they can use a number of different frequencies, but GM only listens for 1 or 2.  And no, I don't know the specific frequencies.
