  1. My truck came with the 120-volt outlet in the bed. Weird question, but does anyone know how long the battery would safely last if we were to plug in a small fan and run it with the truck not running? My wife and kids want to go to a drive-in movie tonight but it's baking hot outside so they asked if we could run a fan. I also have to leave the truck in the "On" position since you need to tune the radio to a certain frequency in order to get the sound for the movie. I'm just wondering if doing these two things for a couple hours at the same time would run the battery down.
  2. Mine has done this since Day 1. When sitting and idling, after the truck has warmed up, it sounds like a low hissing sound. When I turn the steering wheel the hissing sound increases. I can drown it out by opening a window or turning up the radio, but I guess I don't really feel like I should have to do that. Plus, where I live it's freezing in the winter and I don't plan on driving around with my window open! I'm not sure why GM calls this "normal". I've driven a lot of vehicles in my time and I don't recall any of them that make this sound. I feel like GM always says an issue is "normal" when they have no fix and simply don't want to spend the money to investigate. It's not the first time this has happened with GM vehicles I've owned. I know nothing is perfect, but I have a hard time believing they can't make a power steering pump that doesn't hiss and groan in a $60k truck. Just my opinion...
  3. Mine does the same thing. It's the ONLY issue I have with this truck, but it's SUPER annoying!I can heart a hissing/wheezing sound even when the truck is idling and no hands on the wheel. If I turn slightly left or right it gets even louder. Driving with a window down or the radio on (or both) drowns it out for the most part. But didn't someone at GM drive one of these trucks at some and say, "Man, this thing drives great, but what the hell is that power steering noise?" How does something like this make it through to production like that? Who knows...
  4. Picked mine up about a month ago. Loving it so far. My only gripe would be a somewhat noisy steering column. I'm not sure if it's the digital steering assist, but mine seems to make a kind of "hissing" sound when turning the wheel. Haven't been able to find others with same issue, so I'm wondering if something may be wrong with mine.
  5. Can someone give me a part number for these sensors? I think I'm gonna look for some online first rather than going through the Dealership.
  6. Thanks everyone. I can't see on my sticker where it lists PTT as an ordered option. So from what I have read here, I guess my truck isn't currently capable of reading the trailer tire pressures. Not sure it's worth the add-on expense. I can always just check them the old fashioned way I suppose. I guess I thought if you got the Advanced Trailering option it would be included. Thanks everyone!
  7. I recently purchased a 2020 Silverado 2500 LTZ with the Advanced Trailering package. Am I supposed to get a set of TPMS sensors included with the sale? I thought they were supposed to come with the truck, but my Dealer says they're not. I really want to use the trailering app in the truck to see the pressures of my trailer tires. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  8. So I recently purchased an LTZ with the power folding mirrors. I knew before I made the purchase that the truck wouldn't fit through my garage doors with the mirrors extended. So I have to fold them in every time I park in my garage and then unfold them every time I leave. I am just wondering if doing this daily will kill the motors. Not that I have a whole lot of choice in the matter. If they break I'll just have to fix them. More curious is anyone here had any experience with GM folding mirror issues. Thanks.
  9. I had a TPW of 4-20-20. Understandably, there was no way that was going to happen. The safety of the production workers is way more important than any truck. That said, I decided I didn't want to wait on my order. My Dealer worked with me and I ended up purchasing a 2020 2500 LTZ in Summit White. Couldn't be happier with the truck. The timing wasn't what I was expecting, but it is what it is. If anyone wants a loaded LT in Silver Ice Metallic, I know where there will be one in a few months...I think. Hope everyone stays healthy and safe.
  10. I checked today and my truck now has a TPW of 4/20. I guess that's good. At least it is progressing through the system. I also read that GM is implementing mandatory OT at the Flint Plant. Maybe it will get built sooner? I can hope anyway....
  11. So I ordered my 2020 2500 LT Gasser on 1/13/20. As of today, there is still no Targeted Build Week. I called the Dealer and spoke with the Salesman I have been dealing with. Apparently they are not building any gas trucks right now. Anyone have any idea why this might be? I was told about two months from order to delivery. Definitely doesn't look like that's gonna happen now.
