dcarl started following biggest tire to fit in the spare tire undercarriage? and Trailer Connection
Check to make sure you have a good ground connection on the trailer itself. Like the person above said it could be a wire on the trailer that is either broken or intermittently shorting on the trailer frame. Ground connections have a tendency to rust so that would be my first inspection point. It could also be a loose wire in the trailer connector (trailer side).
After updating my iPhone 11 to the latest update and using an “Apple” USB cable my connection problems seem to have been fixed. If you’re not using an Apple cable, you may want to try one to see if that helps.
I've had the snowflake wheel as a spare with a LT285/60R20 tire and there's still plenty of room to spare (pardon the pun).. I recently changed to a new set of wheels and 295/70R18 tires with a spare to match but I haven't put the spare up there yet. I don't think I'll have any issues with it fitting.

I just installed a set of 18” wheels and 295/70R18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2 tires. I was running Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT285/60R20 on the stock snowflake wheels. I can tell you the ride is night and day different. The only way I could get a half way decent ride from the LT Tire’s was to run them at 35 psi and even then it still felt like I was ricocheting off of bumps. Now the ride feels closer to stock comfort level.
I went with my local Discount Tire and they matched Discount Tire Direct prices. I went with https://www.discounttiredirect.com/buy-wheels/vision-nemesis for $173 EA and https://www.discounttiredirect.com/buy-tires/nitto-terra-grappler-g2 for $287 EA. The tires are non LT and. Between the Wheels and Tires I shaved 15Lbs per corner and you can feel it. As far as the wheels, I wanted something I haven't seen on my color truck yet, and when they got mounted, i really liked them. I would take a look at the specs on the Terra Grapler G2 tires https://www.nittotire.com/light-truck-tires/terra-grappler-g2-all-terrain-light-truck-tire/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwrrXtBRCKARIsAMbU6bEcILw2iyB8CTOqXqLHHZekfJ0_1vIz1e5kdTWZOabJTfrOAr7C3fgaAv5sEALw_wcB. All the tires that don't have LT in the size are "P" rated tires. I can tell from experience from the last couple years that I've have just as many road hazard issues with the LT tires as I've had with the "P" rated tires.
My first recommendation is stay away from 20" wheels if you appreciate a nice ride. I really liked the design of my snowflake 20" wheels on my SLT but when I initially changed from the stock P255/55R20 to P275/60R20 the ride was still pretty good with Bilstein 2" level. Then I put on a set of LT285/60R20 and the ride went to hell. Even after installing Boss Halo Coilovers the ride was much improved but it was like the truck ricochet off of bumps. This weekend I put a set of Vision Nemisis 111 18x9 with 0 offset and Nitto Terra Grappler G2 295/70R18 Tire’s and the ride almost feels like a stock truck!
I have Cognito UCAs on my 15 Sierra with Boss Halo coilovers and the stock 20" snowflake wheels. My coilovers are set at 2" and I have a Zone 1.5" body lift. Before I put the Cognitos on I had RC UCAs and had the same issue as you. At that time my front was set to 3", so i think the higher you go, the more it pulls the wheel in. At 2" on the coilovers it does not make contact anywhere. I'm running a LT285/60R20 tire. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
I'm running BORA 1" spacers with the snowflake wheels and LT285/60R20 Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires. I have the Boss Halo Lift coilovers at 2" and a Zone 1.5" body lift. The wheels will work without trimming the studs. I have a rub when cranked all the way in reverse but it's only the liner. I'm also running Cognito UCAs and there is no contact with them. When you lift the front with a spacer, you are bringing the wheel inward which is the problem you described. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
I had that happen and I just pressed the bushing into the plate using a large socket and vise. A little lube will make it easier too. If I recall, I forgot to put the washer on top and that's why it popped lose.
This website lists that part number for 2017/2018 Silverados https://www.partsgeek.com/ss/?ssq=13516164&page=1 I would recommend calling a tire shop and asking the question to be sure.
I did sell it. I see them from time to time on this forum. You can also check eBay. I see them quite a bit there too. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
I’ve punctured 10 ply tires just as much as the other.... in that size, you would be more comfortable with the 4 ply. I run LT285/60R20 and to get a decent ride I run them at 38 psi cold. Really should be running 42 psi based on the conversion table from Toyo Tires but it definitely has an impact on ride quality. As you go bigger, the p-metric options are hard to find. Nitto Terra Graplers G2 come in a 305/55R20 "XL" version which is lighter.
I had RC UCAs on my 15' Sierra with Boss Coilovers at 3". Without wheel spacers, my stock 20" wheels would contact that apex on the front of the arm (metal to metal)... I ended up replacing the arms with Cognito, dropped it back down to 2" and there is no rubbing anywhere.
