  1. I could only wish they would offer dual tanks. I stand corrected as you sir are correct. I guees the aftermarket tank builders get more sales. Chuck
  2. I love how everyone says, just add air bags. Maybe a compressor and lines also get higher rated tires. Well tell you what people, If you have a accident and the person who was hit / injured will be able to sue the pants off you. I say this if all these parts are added you are aware you exceeded the design weight limits of the truck. Just because you added bags and higher rated tires make you immediately guilty and the cause of the accident. No person / engineer can change the rated loads on the trucks AND recertify the weight limits. DOT WILL check the name plate and they WILL check the trailer and find you exceeded the rated weight limits. You may find your auto / truck insurance company drop you and not cover anything from that accident! Just plan ahead and get the correct weight designed truck, AND pay for THAT 1 ton. If you get a single rear wheel, you havn't drove in windy conditions and semi passing by at 75 OR had a blow out at 70 mph. Yea its a Bi$(h driving as a daily driver. Man up learn to drive. So we have to park further away from the front door shopping, maybe drop a few pound ( never happened to me). Chuck
  3. I am guessing that since your tires are dismounted you upgraded to a more reliable tire before some adverse happened. Yes the labor dispute has me wondering how long a delivery delay will occur. I placed the order towards the end of August and the dealer said the tentative build date was the middle of October. Allot of variables exist do to the strike. Good luck on our future purchase I agree the interior is a bit dated compared to other manufactures. I can deal with that just hoping it lives up to my expectations performance wise when I hook up to my fifth wheel. Well it appears as if GM has created a truck capable of hauling best in class payloads but didn't take into account trailers that carry those types of loads have tires that exceed 100 PSI, quite disappointing to say the least. 100 PSI is close to my tire rating of my trailer tires but 10 psi lost pressure on a hot day could be enough to cause a blow-out which is the whole point of the TPMS system. Perhaps with enough customer complaints they might push thru a software update to correct this shortcoming. Thanks Jack for taking the time to answer our concerns. Roadrunner, well I have had them on and mounted to my high pressure rim's. They are rated for G tires due to higher pressure. There is so much that GM does not realize on their truck products. I remember on my '16 so much fanfare on the cell phone charger. There is so much distraction trying to make it work. Yet they also have so much fanfare for the new dually trucks and yet to hold back. I have read the 2020 cameras are not available? Really advertise like crazy and non performer! So I am frustrated on product delays as well as incomplete research and development. Seems like they have little or no idea on product needs. Chuck
  4. Roadrunner I totally agree. Yet some times GM has let us down. I have a trailer that has 6 tires and they are "G Rated" tires. It runs at 110 PSI. I also understand a lot of ranch show horse / cattle trailers are encouraged to run G rated tires AND rims. You can see my tires / rims rated at 110 PSI. I was planning on a new Denali crew cab with a 8 foot bed and fully loaded. But it appears with the labor dispute and the intentional delayed sloooow Christmas release. Well since it will be so close to the '21 model I may just wait it out. New interior OR old style. See what price breaks will occur. Chuck
  5. sdelam, I know you showed those finger pulls molded into the camera plug. What is the diameter of that plug where your thumb finger is at? I could modify it by carefully removing those finger pulls to allow me to pull the cable in. This would make it a lot easier for me. This is without the finger pulls. Thank You Chuck
  6. Sdelam, so the trailer tires can be set up to 110 PSI? or is that a assumption during set up? Has anyone tired to make the setting up that high or higher? Chuck
  7. Silly Rabbit... goggle traffic / mapping is also a "App" on the Iphone. I am NOT a avid user of the Iphone and was issued one for work. I hated the Iphone map software and had the IT department load the Google App for maps. But I also found entering BOTH address into both phones. They had different methods of their madness. I found on Android phones the routs were shorter AND took traffic with accidents routing a lot better. Now that is my experiences. May not be yours. I would think that GM would HAVE to appeal to both types of phones. or have a app that allows the Iphones to operate. Silly rabbit..... LOL Chuck
  8. Ok I just went thru the GM ordering guide and looked for fuel tanks. There are "3" yes three tanks options available to order. CODE N2L is for 40 GALLON rear tank, Then there is CODE N2M IS FOR 23.5 GALLON AND THERE IS A CODE N2N FOR A DUAL TANK SET UP FRONT AND REAR TOTAL OF 63 GALLONS. So now that clears everything up. Don't everyone rush to the dealers and order dual tanks. I got this from the "GM RPO Codes" They are available for both the regular and crew cabs and per note "1-Equipment Group 1SA available on all models" https://www.gmfleetorderguide.com/NASApp/domestic/proddesc.jsp?year=2020&butID=1&regionID=1&divisionID=1&vehicleID=21694&type=0 Chuck
  9. Scott I am wondering on the TPP individual units. Who sets the pressures for the trailer tires. My trailer tires are 110 PSI for each tire? I know the truck tires are set per the factory pressures. I also hear there are dealers that will NOT reset the alarms for the truck tires lower to get a better ride. There were dealers for the '19 models that charges between 50 and 150 bucks to reset alarms. Also certain dealers say they can't get approval from GM to lower the alarms. Anyone know for sure? The tire pressure question is what concerns me. Chuck
  10. I understand there is interference from the trailer and truck tire sensors. This is a reason also I understand for a hard wire is the HD display. Chuck
  11. I have been watching all the camera issues everyone is having. I came across a HD coax cable at Amazon. Here is the link. This one is 50 feet. I am wondering if this would help a lot of people IF this would work. I know it has the power cable with it but that wouldn't be needed but the HD and made for security cameras. Maybe someone would chime in and take a chance on a 2020 camera utilizing this cable?

  12. I can not believe that the diesel tanks are 28 gallons for a long bed dually? wow why not the larger tank? I guess those aftermarket tank companies will be making some money.
  13. Could you please contact me. I have a 2016 GMC Denali dually. I have the ROSTRA / Echo Master cameras system. I have a wireless trailer camera, a front grill camera and 2 side view mirrors. My system also included a switch that allows my cell phone to be displayed on the 8 inch infotainment screen. My question is that I have a problem. When I back up the rear tail gate camera takes over the screen (I selected the wireless trailer camera) and displays the tailgate camera. It takes pushing several buttons to get the wireless camera to be displayed. Each time I pull up I have to be distracted with repeated buttons to switch screen back to the display I want. Is there any way to set the infotainment screen to hold the present display rather than automatically switching to the tail gate camera? Please contact me initially on my Email at [email protected] I would like to discuss it with you. When you email me I'll give you me cell number. I live in Las Vegas not to far from you.

     

    Thanks

  14. I am furious on the delay of the 2020 long bed duallys. I found a site https://www.donlen.com/production-trucks-gm.html that shows a bit more info on truck production. Nothing is really given for a hard date. As I mentioned in earlier posting I feel that it can't be the truck with the only major changes are a long bed and the dually rear tires. Also consideration is the SAE increase of the weight allowances for Goose neck and 5th wheels. It can't be on emission regulations as the 1 ton SRW are in slow production as it is now. It is very slow as many are held up / delayed deliveries / shipments. I know GM has bragged out loud that they are renovating the production line to increase the production. So many bottle necks. I cannot figure out a big bang circus (cue the clowns and elephants with balloons) of the new truck AND the dually trucks BUT to delay a hugh profit items really makes me think they may have other problems? Also look, it "MIGHT BE" they over produced the '19 dually models AND they didn't anticipate the hugh push back on the competition trucks and a cellar price sale as well as the new up graded interior on the Dodge truck line, hence using the bean counters statement they "intentionally had a slow release"? They also got a ear full (key board warriors) about the poor looking carbon copy (hey IF we move the switch over the other side it a NEW dash) hasn't worked especially on the high end Chevrolet /GMC trucks as they want to further increase the prices. So they know they are behind the ball. Delay the '20 dually and hope to crash the '21 model early with up dated dashes etc. BUT they have already lost market share, how many buyers have or are looking to make THAT switch! Chuck
  15. I have been keeping a close watch on the camera cable issues. I did research and came across this on Amazon. see what you think SyncArrow Premium PRO-Grade 1080P HD Premade 2-In-1 Multi-Purpose Fire-Rated Double Shielded BNC Video Power Extension Cord CCTV Combo Coaxial Cable with BNC RCA (PRO-15M2W, 50 feet, White) It made for HD grade signal. Its cheap enough and the length appears to be in the right area. Chuck
