  1. Not sure, If I mess around and find the setting I will share. It comes on automatically when the remote start and stays on until I actually push the start button on the dash. Then I have to turn the cooling seat back on.
  2. I just traded in my 2015 crew cab All-Terrain HD 3 weeks ago. I owned it for 4 1/5 years and I had 128,000 miles on it and they gave me $2k less than what I originally paid for it. CRAZY! When I did the KBB check, I had 6 or so dealerships all contacting me to buy my truck.
  3. No, I traded a 2015 for a 2021. They were so hard up for a good used 2500 Diesel they gave me $2k less that what I originally paid for it 4 1/2 years ago and I had put about 90,000 more miles on it. Insane! I actually did the KBB trade-in feature that they now have. I think it is fairly new and it is pretty in depth. you put in all your truck in to and then spell out any flaws or blemishes in detail and the body locations. You can also upload pictures. It goes to a KBB appraiser and they send you an email about 10-15 minutes later with the buy and trade value that is honored
  4. Is there a sub option for the tailgate set up? My wife is looking to get this installed on my truck for me for Father's Day, so I want to make sure it sounds decent enough to be worthwhile
  5. Like you said, the used market is crazy right now and dealers are paying a premium for good used vehicles. You might be paying more for a replacement, but if you get more for your trade that what the current mark up is, you will still come out ahead or break even and have a new truck with more features. If you are looking for a gasser, I agree with Nards on looking at getting a new one. Cash in on your trade and look to get a new one. I just did the same thing myself a few weeks ago. I was floored when I was approached with a dealer offer to buy my truck, I couldn'
  6. Anyone have any experience with the built in speakers option in the tailgate? Curious what your thoughts were on the sound and how often you actually use it.
  7. There are a lot of additional variables that we don't know in order to give an honest opinion. Bottom line is do what makes you happy, who cares what others think. best I could say is see what your current truck is worth and talk to the dealer about the trade. You might get an offer that is a no-brainer to go with or an offer not worth your time. Never hurts to look into it.
  8. I'm not sure how, but when it is hot out and I remote start mine, the a/c and cooled seats are on.
  9. Agree! I found out from personal experience. They didn't tell me about this new "feature" at the dealership. my previous 2015 didn't auto shut off, so I wrongly assumed this one wouldn't either, what a surprise.
  10. hey all, It's been a while since I have been here where I feel like a new member again. I did get a new truck so I thought I would come back to the fold and say hello. traded off my 2015 Sierra 2500 All-Terrain HD for a new Onyx Black 2021 Sierra 2500 AT-4 with the Duramax and all options available that's equivalent to their Black Diamond package. So far, I absolutely love this truck. No surprise though since I loved my 2015 as well. My first add-on will be some better tires since I have never been a fan of the Goodyear AT's that it comes with. Looking at a set of matte blac
  11. That's a fact!! I would suggest ANYONE looking to buy a travel trailer of any kind to go to the RV or their respective forum for the TT they are looking to get (or have) and read up on information there. Lots of people will say the same thing, pretty much every RV dealership will try to tell you "you can tow this just fine". When we were shopping for ours, we had one dealership try to tell me my previous 1500 could handle a 34' 8200lb travel trailer just fine with room to spare. Trying to convince me that was totally fine and safe with my wife and kids with me. Needless to say we boug
  12. Here is information from GM for a 2017 GMC Sierra CC 4x4 with 3.42 : Trailering Dead Weight Hitch - Max Trailer Wt. : lbs 5000 Dead Weight Hitch - Max Tongue Wt. : lbs 500 Wt Distributing Hitch - Max Trailer Wt. : lbs 6100 Wt Distributing Hitch - Max Tongue Wt. : lbs 610 Maximum Trailering Capacity : lbs 11700 I am going to Quote a post from a little while back from Toro1966, he gave a pretty good break down that explains it better than I did. "Basically it depends on what you have in the truck. Very confusing I know, but i
  13. That is spot on. Usually the biggest gotcha towing a larger trailer with a 1500 is the max payload is exceeded. By the time you take into consideration a full tank of gas, all your passengers and any gear in the truck, you are left with very little for your tongue weight. When GM touts their payload, it is calculated with a 150 lb driver with no passengers, no gear in the truck and a 1/4 tank of gas. As we all know, that is not realistic. Let say you weigh 200lbs, your wife weighs 130, your kid weighs 80, your dog weighs 50. If you have 25 gallons of gas at 6lbs per gallon that would be
  14. I totally agree! There are several of us where I work who use our diesel trucks as our daily driver as well. I have about a 27 mile commute (one-way) to work everyday and I am doing better with mpg's in my duramax than I was in my 5.3. The oil changes cost a little more, but the interval that I need to get them has lessened so it became kind of a wash. I think you would be just fine with a diesel as your daily driver, there are quite a few of us out there that prove it.
  15. 1. After my free OnStar trial ran out I didn't bother renewing it and I haven't missed it at all. The one thing I do like and use all the time is the OnStar App on my phone. It is free to use and you get diagnostic updates and key fob functions that you can use anywhere. It is nice being able to start my truck at work and let it warm up/cool off before I even go outside. I've been out of town and unlocked my truck for my kids to get something out of it. Very handy! 2. If you call to cancel your Sirius, they offer a 6 month for $25. I have done this about 4 times now. I set a cale
