Reviving this a little bit. Has anyone ordered part number 13540312? That's what's listed as the replacement for 13581082, but the picture shows an outside mirror. Not trying to get the wrong part. Thanks!
Just to follow up on this. I had it in the dealer and they did some testing. Tech up cleaning the connector on the truck side and everything works just fine now. Didn't even cross my mind the connector might need cleaning on a brand new truck.
Brakes are good. I hooked it up to my neighbors Sierra this evening and with the gain set on his at 5.0, the braking was quite a bit better. I'm gonna make an appointment for the dealer to check it out.
I just towed my travel trailer with my new 2020 Silverado, with the factory brake controller. I had a 2020 Colorado ZR2 Bison prior, which was totaled in a crash last month. Prior to that, I had a 2017 ZR2 with the Diesel engine (which was replaced twice). In both Colorados with the factory controller, I would end up with a gain of about 4.0-4.5 and get excellent control of the trailer braking. Towing with the Silverado, I ended up with a gain of 7.5 with the same trailer. In addition, I feel like even with a higher gain setting, the braking performance wasn’t at all what I expected from the bigger truck. The trailer is a 2018 Keystone passport 175BH, max weight of 4500lbs, probably about 3500 when I’m moving from my house to the storage lot and vise versa. Am I wrong in thinking that the gain setting would have been about the same with the same trailer, considering they are all GM parts?
The auto headlights are super sensitive. I can't completely dim the instruments if i have the truck running at night and parked. Random popping in the dash while I'm driving. No wiper defrosters (my 2008 Subaru had them, very nice during the winter months) Tungsten shows dirt as soon as I wash it.
Kinda related to this topic. How often should I put it in auto or 4wd if I don't need it for a period of time? Is everything constantly lubed so not an issue if I don't move the selector for a couple months?
I have the nFab steps on mine. I like how they sit up close to the body, and the steps come down and away. Similar to what the GM bars look. Less than $300 off Amazon with prime shipping ?
I understand these are all new, so not really expecting anyone to know the answer, but figured I would ask anyway. Chevy finally updated their accessories page with the 2016 accessories. When I was looking for videos on the Silverado, I ran across a video from SEMA last fall that had a Silverado with the off road package installed. The factory off road lights were controlled by holding the foglight switch down for a few seconds. I really like this feature since it's all factory. My questions are: Does anyone have access to the install instructions for the factory off road lights? Does anyone know if the switch and harness would be available on their own? I looked for part numbers and such, but couldn't find anything. I don't need the lights themselves since I'd look at other light bar options for way cheaper. I attached a picture of the accessory I was talking about.
