  1. The fuse is in the passenger side fuse box. It can be installed for constant power or switched. I have a heated air freshener and it works perfectly switched
  2. I had the problem and it was all directly related to a bad software build. The problem was corrected and have used the remote and app for auto starts and haven’t had a single issue. The problem was corrected.
  3. The rear end ratio is different as well on The Heavy Tow loaner as well. I was scared to get an NHT truck because of the ride but I find it a huge improvement over my 14 All Terrain and both have 20” wheels. The loaded ride is superb and very stable.
  4. The one thing that surprises me most on the T1 interior is how flimsy the dash panel is where the seat heater/cooler buttons are. The K2 buttons mounted area was extremely rigid. The T1 interior panel moves when you push the seat heaters. Other than that the interior is top notch and very user friendly
  5. Hot spot to your phone works for weather app FYI
  6. I had the update done yesterday. After a day of driving and multiple auto-starts with app and fob: All is well (so far). I was in a loaner for a week and it’s nice to be back in my truck. This software build initially appears pretty stable.
  7. The 10-speed is an excellent transmission. A Friend of mine has a platinum Eco-Boost with the 10-speed that we have driven numerous times on a 10 hour trip. When I got my 19 with the 6.2 and the NHT gearing I couldn’t believe the difference and improvement. I believe with the 5.3 it is an even bigger improvement. I have yet to feel a single questionable shift. Only thing I would like is an Eco mode option in the shifting profiles with Sport and tow/haul.
  8. Have a 2020 Sierra SLT 5.3 10-speed loaner and it is a very good combo. Haven’t had any shifting issues
  9. Just got a call from dealer that my truck is FUBAR until the next software is released. They will not give me the truck back because my ABS is currently comprised. I am in a loaner for 2-more weeks. I would advise anyone with appointments to get anything software related done, to wait.
  10. Maybe they are giving you Kilometers? 18,500 Miles is 29,772 Kilometers
  11. 2019 Sierra 6.2 NHT had the recalls done and after first remote start using the app got the warning messages for trailer, esc, abs, speed limited to 62mph warnings. Tried the app later that day and sure enough all the warnings again. Also have a constant CEL.. Second time it took a couple restarts to get the traction control and brake lights to clear. Definitely corrupt or incorrect software issue
  12. Contamination in fuel tank? i made it 190k miles with stock injectors...
  13. Just put a new 6.2 in my 14 truck and the mileage was significantly lower for the first 6-8k miles.... hang in there it will improve after the break-in. Just did a Cincy-Charlotte trip and the average was 21.6
  14. I switched at 140,000 to 5/30 and usage was reduced initially. I am also using 5/30 from the beginning on the new engine. These 2-stage oil pumps are all about efficiency and allow the use of the thinner oils. It’s all about efficiency... that’s why we have AFM/DFM, electric steering, the 2-stage oil pump also helps... I could care less what oil people are using. The 2-stage oil pumps are standard issue in how they convey oil and using a minimal viscosity change is not going to make a difference. It is going to help on the bearings throughout the engine... 200k on a stock engine is reasonable but my last engine the LLY Duramax went 390k and ran well when I sold it. If you’re not going to put high miles on the engine run the stock oil. I don’t tow and hardly ever haul heavy loads. My service records are impeccable. When a failure occurs it is typically good to change something in order stop future failures. I chose a viscosity change. of note: I have noticed that the new engine hits the second stage (increased oil pressure) quicker (lower rpms). This could be the cause of the failure and solved with the new engine.
