  1. I installed the upfitter switches in my 2020. Search the Mod category for upfitter switch install and there is at least one thread with pictures of the install. The part numbers have changed since I purchased them or I would post them here. Good Luck Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I doubt it would be damaged if you don’t slide it. Give them a call as they are responsive, I’ve spoken with them about a few questions I had prior to both my orders. They also have heavier duty models (not sure if they heavier duty ones are still aluminum). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Try carplay2air.com or a similar device... I think there was a thread on this forum saying it worked for his 2020 HD. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Have you spoken to Thule about the problem? Were you below their advertised weight limit? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Mx_master, Thanks for letting me know! That sounds great. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. My parent’s Cadillacs had the mirrors with the camera view for a few years now. I also found I had problems focusing on the mirror while driving their Escalade / XT5. After buying my 2020 GMC 2500 and driving around for a couple of weeks the problem went away. My eyes focus on the screen and I don’t get a headache. I think the problem is that we’ve driven for years with a regular mirror and our eyes are used to focusing on “infinity” because we’re looking at a reflection in the standard mirror. When you look at the camera view of the mirror your eyes are focusing 18 inches away at the monitor. Give it a few weeks and your brain / eyes will adjust. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. I use the EL-50448 TPMS relearn tool which was around $80 when I purchased it. Doing a Google search on GM TPMS Relearn Tools it looks like the going price is $10-20 now. There should be no difference if you’re doing 2 tires or 6 for the TPMS tool. It just sends a radio signal that should activate the TPMS sensor. The 3500 is keeping track of how many sensors and where they are. I’ve set up three of my trailers. I think it helps if you drive for a few miles before trying to setup the Trailer Profile. I also have someone sit in the truck, watch the screen and let me know when to go to the next tire. If you have a Trailer profile that you weren’t able to get the sensors paired to delete it from the truck and create a new profile with a different name. After you get the sensors paired you can rename the profile. I learned this the hard way with my generator trailer and had many failed attempts until I tried with a new name.

  8. That’s good to know. I emailed them and they replied that it works for the 2019 models but they weren’t sure if it worked for the 2020’s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I installed a Slide Master cargo tray a while back and thought I would share pics. This is the 1600# pound capacity aluminum version with 70% extension. On my 2016 I had the 1000# pound version with the gravity lock instead of the spring loaded one. This new system is much improved... I don’t like leaving stuff out for thieves so I have a Diamondback tonneau cover as well. There is limited height with the combination but the great majority of my trips are to Costco and Sam’s Club for my business and the height is just right for the 27 gallon black rectangular totes I use. Made in the USA. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I’m guessing you have a 1500. If your trailer has LED lights it’s not a matter of “providing the juice” to power the trailer lights. The issue is your trailer doesn’t have enough current draw to let the system know the lights are on. It measures the amps of current used by the lights to determine the trailer is connected. Borrow or buy a Reese 20142 Trailer adapter ($25) and see if the trailer lights work. This is just a male / female plug with a resistor in series with the running lights. Otherwise either add more lights to your trailer or tell your wife you need a bigger boat! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. This thread was started in January. It will be August in a couple of days. I feel empathy for the few guys that are having these problems but I think we would have hear more if it was very widespread. I personally haven’t had problems with the regeneration system. I purchased my truck in December and only have 11,500 miles on it but they are mostly stop and go miles which is a worst case scenario for DEF equipped trucks. Good Luck...

  12. I just had my tire shop install 4 more of these on my car hauler trailer yesterday. I used GM part # 84152501 I purchased them for $65 off eBay last week and they showed up Monday afternoon. The tire pressure and temp show up on the truck display. I have 3 trailers set up with these, the only issue I have seen is that during setup the truck only indicates pairing success on the screen, no light flash or honk. I just have someone sit in the truck with a walkie-talkie and let me know when the pairing has completed for each sensor. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. On my small utility trailer that I share with my brother I opened up the 7 pin connector and spliced in a short 4 pin pigtail. You need to keep the unused connector covered when the other one is plugged in... As you can see from the picture he broke the 7 pin the last time he used the trailer and I will need to put a new one on. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  14. My wife and I drove 1200 miles over this last long weekend and the issues were very minor. We had the “radio” set on a Sirius/XM station and we commented on how few times it cut out. I’m starting to think it may be heat related. I live in Phoenix AZ and the temps have been in the 110 range with the truck interior much hotter when I get in. Since most of my trips are short the system doesn’t cool down much. Our trip was up to Flagstaff and on to Durango, Silverton and Ouray CO. The weather was much cooler so possibly that helped. We drove back Sunday afternoon and today the audio was cutting out when I was speaking to my mother on the phone. I switched the phone audio from the truck to the phone handset and the audio started working well again. It is cooler today but still 106... I’m interested in hearing about how Jay’s system worked on his trip... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  15. Jay, have you had any resolution for your audio problems? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
