  1. Thank you. I'm not sure I've ever noticed any of those.
  2. Ok, I have a 2016 Sierra Denali 2500 HD with over 36,000 miles on it and I don't know if I've ever noticed a regen take place. Is there any sort of information or indication on the DIC when this takes place? Apologies if this has been asked before, but I didn't find anything with my brief search.
  3. I bought the Husky liners for my truck. GMC 2500HD 4x4 Denali. They were easy to install and have held up real well. Pricing on Amazon, at the time, was less than WeatherTech and I really couldn't find anything significant in the way of negatives about the Husky. A few pics right after I installed them.
  4. None of these things will prevent the problem OP is reporting. Not using a pressure washer *might* delay the peeling but it's going to happen anyway. This is a problem with the paint not adhering to the base metal. I can't believe this is still happening. We had an 80s Suburban that did this! Yes, this has been going on for 30+ years and it's evident GM has no intent to fix it at the factory level. I was washing my 2016 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali the other day and noticed several chips in the paint already. I just can't believe it. I'll be contacting them soon to, at least, get the complaint on file for when the real peeling starts.
  5. Add a Nikon 16-80 f2.8-4 to the stable. Got it for Christmas. I think it's going to take the 18-70's place as my daily driver.
  6. I haven't been on here in awhile but wanted to come back and say, yup, the sharkfin leaked AGAIN! Supposedly got it "fixed" again yesterday. We'll see since we had a pretty good rain overnight last night. Supposedly there is a "new" fix that involves a different torque spec on the nut and applying seam sealant...somewhere. I don't know if any of this is for a service bulletin, but here is what is on my invoice - " Cause corrected. 3480548 RD 1.3 Doc ID#4828810". Covered under warranty so that part's good. Fingers crossed.
  7. We have an Atwood electric tongue jack. 3300 lb rating and it does a good job. Wife and I primarily use cell phones for backing and hitching. We do have walkie talkies for when cell service isn't available.
  8. I wonder, since the part number is still available through GM if they might have either the struts and locks or the mfr information you need. Start by calling your local GMC/Chevy dealer's parts dept?
  9. It still could be the tires. The treads are designed to try and remove as much harmonics as possible but it can still happen in the right circumstances, certain speeds being one. Not sure how easy, or practical, it would be to try this but have someone drive next to you and see if they can hear it in the lane next to you when you reach that speed.
  10. I seriously considered Lance. I ended up joining the Lance Owner's of America (LOA) forum and glad I did because their quality has really gone downhill. Not worth the money IMO. They are charging what they are charging based on reputation alone now. I get it that forums are magnets for complaints more than positive reviews, but go to the Northwood RV Owners of America (NROA) forum and compare complaints to compliments. I really like the phrase "it's like putting lipstick on a pig" when referring to cosmetics on top of what's underneath. Sure, the cheaper ones may be flashier looking, but it's the bones that matter. Lipstick on a pig still means there's a pig under there. Forgive me for sounding like a shill for Northwood. I'm really not, but my search ended with Northwood once I started really looking deep.
  11. I don't know what you want in a trailer, but we decided we didn't want a slideout. And, we wanted something on the smaller side. So, we ended up buying an Arctic Fox 22G. Walls are aluminum framed, welded construction. There are wood inserts placed inside the aluminum tubing wherever fasteners have to go into the framing. That way there is plenty of "meat" for the fasteners to grab onto. Attached are a couple of pictures from our recent Northwood mfg tour (mfr of our trailer). The roofs are wood trusses. However, they are not held together with just staples. They use similar looking ties that are used in home roof truss construction. Northwood does make an all wood framed line, Nash. If you are shopping by price, then aluminum framed could be out of your budget. But, don't let just the framing determine why you buy one. Northwood also builds their own chassis. And the chassis are independently certified to what is close to home earthquake standards. Nash's chassis are the same way. Note that we didn't have to negotiate a whole lot on our 22G, and the dealer met us in the middle between their asking price and our first offer. Plus they threw in a few goodies to sweeten the deal. Not trying to push Arctic Fox or Nash, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better value.
  12. Went over to Harbor Freight and got a free magnetic tool holder. I put it up today.
  13. No pics but I washed all the bugs off the grille of the truck and the front of our trailer that accumulated on our 1200 mile camping trip. Man, that was a lot of bugs.
  14. Towed our Arctic Fox 22G 210 miles today. 270 more miles tomorrow to attend the Northwood RV rally in La Grande, OR. Pic taken at a rest stop along the way.
