redwngr replied to gmcleer's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDLittle spring in the seat belt retractor. IMHO, about as low on the 'invasive' scale as you can get.
redwngr replied to nrsk4u's topic in 2017 / 2018 Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo-Diesel (L5P) Technical DiscussionClearly something is wrong with your truck. DEF is used continuously, not just during regen. DEF consumption should be in the range of 1200mpg, not 80mpg. And how did you figure out the the def mileage was 80mpg when it was trying to regen?
redwngr replied to paauto's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Accessories & ModificationsRequires a GM laptop/software. Talked with tech while mine being done -- using the wifi in truck and wifi in shop. Interesting side note is that now when I look at the myGMC app on the phone, the 'recommended tire pressures' it shows are the ones we programmed, not the ones on the door sticker. And no, there are no tuners out for the L5P. There are 'foolers' out that plug into the harness and intercept sensor info send incorrect information in order to change ECM response.
redwngr replied to Wxman's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I'd be running the recommended 35 cold. Your using a WD hitch. Your tongue weight is below the max recommended tongue weight for a 1500, and well below the max recommended tongue weight for a 1500 with a WD hitch in use. (700 for reg hitch and 1250 for WD hitch with 1500, per OM)
The GM moveable ones work great with the spray in liner. I can understand that with a slip-in there might be an adjustment in method required - or a snip to the liner.
For tying stuff down, i still like the moveable rings that can replace the plugs on the inside walls of the box.

Rear ones are open and shaped as they are for a hand hold when using the corner step.

redwngr replied to greenfire's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsGiven the right conditions of ambient temp and amount and dampness of the snowfall this can happen with the old, hot sealed beams as well. Been there, done that. (yes, a long time ago....) One of things to be prepared for when driving in winter conditions. Colder temps and drier snow, not so much an issue.
redwngr replied to Ret Grunt's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500IMHO, a lot of the ride issues on the SUV's are also due to the 20's that are so popular.
redwngr replied to STINSAN3's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsMy 15 heated slowly, and could be left on high for a 'long' time. The 16 heat quicker and needed to be turned down after 15 or 20 minutes. The 18 gets hot fast. Usually looking to turn to low after 5 -10 minutes.
