It was the manager, they backed each other up, which is OK. My buddy has an 18, it blows much more and colder air. When I got home last night, I removed the rear seat cover to inspect the fans again. I took the foam inlet filter off and cleaned it thoroughly, it seemed to make a difference, this morning I got that "wet back" feeling, with the air being reasonably cool, just low flow. One mechanic did say that no matter how clean you keep your truck, the seat cushions still fill up with skin cells and micro debris, he recommended removing the seat covers and cleaning the cushions and covers to allow better flow. I think he may be onto something because they seem to push less air year after year. My '20 is on the line now, so my brother can deal with it, I just wanted it to be pristine when he gets it.
Update: The response I expected, like it's read from a script: "The seats are not cooled, only ventilated by cool cabin air. Try running the A/C on feet only and moving all obstructions from under and behind seat. The ventilation performance is based on the cabin air temperature and the cleanliness of the seat perforations". Well a couple of things to kill that theory: 1. This summer is on record for one of the coolest in Colorado history, and it's a garage queen, the interior never gets very hot. 2. I have tried the feet A/C vents and also took a dryer vent tube and piped one of the A/C vents right to the intake(s) on the seat. 3. Cleaned the seats again (they are immaculate any way) and then let A/C from the front vents blast them for about 5 minutes without me in them Result: as soon as your body temperature starts to warm the seats back up they blow warmer and warmer air to the point that it feels like a blow dryer. Before they quit blowing cold air, you could only stand them on high for about 5 minutes, it felt like your rear and back were wet. Disappointing!
Shawn T replied to sdelam's topic in 2020 Chevy Silverado HD & GMC Sierra HD (2500/3500)My build sheet (20 2500 Duramax Denali Ultimate) lists PZ8 and PTT for the guidance and valve stems but no ZL6. If I remember correctly the only option I opted out of on my build was the ZL6 because I do not need the App, I only have a 5th wheel that I pull a handful of times per year. I did want the bed and guidance view along with the PTT. We tried and tried to figure out how to order the extra cameras, it looks as thought they are only available through GM accessories. The list above reflects that PZ8 can only be had with ZL6? Heck I don't know what I'm getting now.
Shawn T replied to powerhaulic's topic in 2020 Chevy Silverado HD & GMC Sierra HD (2500/3500)Good point, maybe I will hit the local RV dealer and see if I can demo a 5th wheel-to-gooseneck adapter for one trip. All I would have to do it buy the ball, and return the adapter. It's worth a shot. I'm going to keep on Curt to see if they can nail down a date when available.
Shawn T replied to powerhaulic's topic in 2020 Chevy Silverado HD & GMC Sierra HD (2500/3500)my '20 hit the line today, I emailed Curt as well, they are in the process of design. I asked if it would be available by Labor Day weekend and it was a maybe. I'm SOL, if not, I have camping reservations and will have a lonely 5ht wheel sitting in the driveway without a hitch to pull it with. I expect the truck here by 8/15, if I cannot get the hitch in time, it may sit on the back lot for 2 weeks.
OK, it's definitely worth a try. I just got off of the phone with the dealer and the service guy was actually pretty honest about it. He said they get about 20 appointments a week about seats and there is really nothing they can do. I know mine are not working because they actually seem hotter with the cooler on high. The good new is my '20 Duramax Denali Ultimate is being built, as we speak. My brother is buying this truck and I just wanted it to be in tip top shape when he does.
Thank you, I was able to pull the cover off far enough to see everything was intact, wires look good and all harness are plugged in. The semiconductor cooler does not seem to function at all anymore, but it was both seats all at once doesn’t make sense. Fuses are good. I am still wondering if the seat memory re flash had anything to do with it. I realized you have to be careful with the cushion and the elements. They are all attached to the cushion using spray adhesive tend to tear the foam rubber if you get too rough. Maybe it’s a trip to the dealer
Does the cooler route through the memory module? The reason I ask is I had it reflashed when my mirrors would not fold in? I’m sure if it is plugged in the firmware would still be intact. My blowers still work, there is only one fuse for each seat for heat and cool. The heat function still works so I figured no sense in wasting time looking at a good fuse. Maybe for sanity sake I will. From the post above it sounds as though I can remove the cover with ease to see if the cooler is functioning
My driver side ventilated seat is not cooling or even pushing air through the seat. The vortex cooler is working, blowing tons of hot air out the rear vents, as normal, just no cool air through the seat. In fact, the seat seems to warm up some. Any thoughts?
As soon as I get a VIN, the clock starts. I’m guessing pricing will be released at months end then it will be assigned. Probably mid summer?
As of this week they are finally build able in Carbon Black Metallic. One a VIN is assigned a work order will be assigned with s build sheet. Debating on ordering the preprogrammed trailer TPS stems. I’ll probably throw them and the remote camera in as well. Yeah so why can the 1500’s be ordered with hidden steps but the HDs not? Makes no sense
Well it's ordered through my local dealer, 4x4 Denali Ultimate in Carbon Black Metallic w/Dark Walnut/Grey interior. No pricing yet, but sure to be around 80K. I found a couple of things standard that are interesting, smoked amber roof markers and camper mirrors, would have ordered both anyway. Also, the GMC Multi-Pro tailgate is not power and down like Chevy's version, I just assumed it was.
I experienced the same issue on my 2015, so I tried something a wheel and tire guru recommended, after having the dealer throw wheel hubs, rotors and CV shafts at it. I asked the dealer to throw a set of 18" wheels and tires on from another truck on the lot ( I have 20's), and the noise was instantly gone. In fact, the noise and ride quality was so much better I was willing to offer trading my wheels and tires straight across for the 18's (I only had 1000 miles on my truck), the dealer would not go for it. It's purely wind noise between the front brake caliper and rim, and is horrible at about 30-40 mph. I will never buy another HD truck with factory 20's. I have since went up 2 tires sizes and the ride quality is much better. Unfortunately the noise is still there.
