DaveInPickerington replied to Jacksfan98's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsThe ride is unaffected on an empty truck. The Timbrens only contact the axle on loading or severe bumps. I'm happy with my purchase. They really help level the truck when hauling a trailer without a weight distributing hitch.
This vendor says it's a replacement. http://www.gmpartsgiant.com/parts/gm-harness-23171566.html

DaveInPickerington replied to Magoomba's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I have to be right next to the garage door also. The remote that came with the door opener works almost a half block away. This problem in not unique to our trucks. Do a Google search and you will find a ton of hits with different makes and models. I appears to me that the Homelink transmitters vary considerably in their power output from one unit to the next. Homelink is useless for customer support. They always seem to say the same thing (Make sure your training remote has a new battery and re-learn).
DaveInPickerington posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Just received a notification that there is a new nav update available for $160. Available at: http://www.gmnavdisc.com I'm interested to see if any online dealerships will have a lower price.
I don't understand the need for the switch. Please explain. Thanks.

DaveInPickerington replied to PMattras's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsDoes the Bed Extender bounce and/or rattle when hitting road bumps?
DaveInPickerington replied to j5wilson's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500The Max Tow Package has a 3.73 rear axle ratio. That's a lot of trailer for the 3.08 gears. I'd worry more about the tongue weight. Your trailer probably has somewhere between 600 and 900 pounds of tongue weight. You may want to add air bags or the Timben SES rear bump stops. No matter what you do, you need a good weight distributing/sway contol system.
DaveInPickerington replied to Scott P's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500My 2014 has the built in controller. I have also used the Prodigy P2 and P3 in previous vehicles. They all perform the same. Both Prodigys slip into a holder and are easy to disconnect and move out of plain sight. I do like the built in controller because the "emergency braking paddles" are easy to reach without looking down to where an aftermarket unit would need to be mounted.

That's good to here. Thank you.
