VMax2007 replied to LAGA's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I am betting the "contaminants" get in by dragging them in with you (slushy shoes, etc). Weathertech floor liners will probably make this a non-issue.

Mine was made in Mexico and my paint is flawless, except for some minor orange peel, which is typical in today's water based paints.

+1 Thanks for the info Don. I will use the Gm stuff too.
It's not a mid-cabin, so it only sleeps 2 inside. I am 6'0" and my wife is 5'3" and we slept in it once. Not bad, but I was a little cramped. It was pretty cool that night, otherwise I would have slept up top. It has a complete camper enclosure with both screens and Isinglass. It has about 350 hours on it and I picked her up for $21K. It has a VHF radio and a Lowrance GPS.
Update: Sold my Larson (pictured previously in this thread) and bought this in August: 2002 SeaRay Weekender 225, 25' OAL with MPI 5.0 260 HP. Not fast, but much better for the river than my little Larson was.
No, this is just general purpose grease and not thick enough for this job. It will work, but not as effectively as recommended greases. I would try either the GM tech bulletin recommended grease (=expensive), or Marine Triple Guard grease. Where can you find that in town? The Triple Guard Grease is marketed by Evinrude/Bombardier. Formerly it was sold by OMC . It is good thick stuff used to lubricate boat propeller shaft splines for a totally waterproof coating that does not wash off even in sea water. Because it is so thick and viscous, it will effectively reduce the audible clunk the yoke makes. You can find it in most boat stores or marina stores, especially ones servicing OMC marine engines and drives. I use Lubri-Plate to grease my boat's prop shaft and after a full summer of use, it is still there 100%. I am thinking of using this on my slip yoke.
Just curious, how would this grease get into the trans to contaminate the the trans fluid?

VMax2007 replied to ShoddyHog's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Well, now that you mention it, I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. Fixed.

Yeah, and then get a big-ass sticker for every other aftermarket branded item you put on your truck. i.e. Valvoline, Trico wiper blades, Turtle Wax, etc...oh and don't forget the Kleen-Ex sticker for that box of tissues you have in the cab either. You wouldn't want to miss out on any of the free advertising for any of the companies you purchased from. I know the letters aren't white, but it sure looks like a whole lot of free advertising on these tires Don't really have much choice here though do I?
