I bought a 2020 GMC sierra that has camera jacks at the 7 pin hitch hookup. I have a travel trailer that i have hooked up a rear camera (used to view on a separate back up screen on top of my dash in old F150).
I would like to use this camera instead of forking out $500 for one from GM. I thought I would be able to plug camera feed from trailer (RCA Plug) into trailer camera jack at rear of truck. My first hurdle was the truck jack is not RCA but a PAL(mainly European) connector. Was able to find a RCA to PAL adapter cable. When I hook up trailer and plug in camera, screen says no camera detected. I crawled under truck to make sure wires go to truck camera jack - there is a cable to the rear camera jack but not to the interior camera jack next to it. Does anyone know how to get the camera to be detected?

That's going to be a software function, not hardware. You would have to spoof the GM camera data over the wire. But first you would have to ID what the truck software is looking for. I would be really leery of messing with that software even if you could find it.

Sounds like the best bet is just to run a separate wire and dash mount the display as you did in the F150 but make it so you can remove it when you're not pulling the travel trailer.
