  1. We should all know that a dirty air filter/less functional will result in a loss of power ( along with many other "things" ). The AC Delco seems to give a good balance of designed power along with fuel mileage. Case in point ... about a month ago, I replaced my AC Delco filter with a Fram filter. That weekend, I pulled my RV about 140 miles on an Interstate that I have traveled before with the same rig. I lost 1 mpg ... now, I know that different day temps/humidity/wind/traffic/etc will affect mpg but I found it interesting after changing back to a AC Delco that my mileage came back to where it was with the same rig.
  2. Well, after discussions with a Reese technician and input from "others", I decided that a slider was cheap insurance. Had a Reese Titan 16K hitch, Reese Titan round tube slider, and Reese bed rails installed.
  3. I have a 2015 Silverado 2500HD with a 6-1/2 ft. bed. Is a slider 5th wheel hitch necessary coupled to a Morryde pin box ?
  4. Hey trx680, I pull this in normal drive with cruise at 68 mph without issue. If the road gets hilly, then I will press the Tow/Haul mode button.
  5. Looking for opinions on what is best for the transmission. I recently purchased a camping trailer … it’s only 18’ with dry weight of 4100lbs. I am guessing that it’s “ready to camp weight” at about 5500lbs. I had to take the trailer back to the dealer for some warranty work. When I towed it back (approx. 40 miles of mixed city/highway) I reset my mpg display and put the transmission in “Tow/Haul” mode. Checked the mileage when I arrived at the dealer and the display was showing 8.8 mpg avg. A few days later, I returned to pick up the trailer. I reset the mpg display and put the transmission in “D”. Checked the mileage when I arrived at the house and the display was showing 10.8 mpg avg. Should you always use “Tow/Haul” mode when pulling a load or should you use it when road conditions dictate … hilly conditions and such.
  6. Putco makes one: http://www.putco.com/products.cfm?action=ProductView&Product=0D72D10F-65BE-F4BB-AD90-16FEC82C5FBD&Category=18E1733D-089E-9305-E1F9-2857B8966C09&partSearch=1 ... or you can make your own: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/196165-made-my-own-grill-insert/
  7. revrnd, if you put your hand behind the metal bumper brackets and "feel around", you will find 2 square holes on each side. I used simple 1/4 - 20 stainless steel bolts/fender washers/lock nuts. I only used the top hole on each side. For the bottom holes I simply used a wire tie per hole. I was going to use clip nuts but couldn't source the size I wanted locally Yes, the top cowling and the front grill had to come out. Not to bad of a job, kinda scary when pulling on the grill to "pop" it loose though.
  8. Thanks shreff86, close, but not quite all the cigars :-) The one on my truck has 3 round support bars, and the bed clamps are slightly different. I did download the install manual for the one you linked to though. Here is a link to the one that I have: http://www.autotrucktoys.com/chevy_silverado/GM-OEM-Chevy-Silverado-Soft-Tonneau-Cover-PRD4451.aspx
  9. Hey Folks, I recently purchased a used 2015 2500HD. Going to use it to tow our new camping trailer ... 2005 Tundra 4.6L didn't have enough horsepower :-) Anyway, the truck came with, what I believe to be, a dealer installed roll-up bed cover. Does anyone know who makes the dealer installed roll-up bed covers for Chevy. I would like to see if an installation PDF might be available for download.
