  1. I’ve had mine plugged in for 6+ days without starting the truck and no issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It did for mine. My phone holder only drew 5 amps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yep only I believe mine was a micro usb not a mini. I have since changed mounts though since I have added CarPlay to my truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think I found my issue. It seems the flex joint on the exhaust pipe behind the third converter is rattling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. You could try checking the grab handle if you have one. I know mine has been loose before and made a rattle sound under acceleration.
  6. I’ve got a very similar issue but mine sounds like a rattle. I’ve had my truck back to the dealer numerous times for this and they say they’ve fixed it every time I go to pick it up and then on the way home the sound reappears. I think I’ve got mine narrowed down to the exhaust but unsure yet. Mine is at the same RPM range as well and will make the rattle when I first start the truck in the morning. When sitting in the cab, it sounds like it’s coming from behind the dash but that’s not the case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I was told the same thing with my 15 Sierra. Dealer said it’s the injectors making the noise and nothing to worry about. Needless to say I’ve been keeping a close eye on things ever since. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Not this guy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. My boss has a 14 Silverado 5.3 with 240K on the clock. Only thing he’s done is a tranny and torque and oil changes. He drives 140 miles per day to and from work with all of it being interstate. His truck is bone stock and is planning to drive it until at least 350K or more he said. He’s averaging 21.5 too on MPG’s he said. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My 15 Sierra is off by 1-2 MPG every time. I’ve got aftermarket wheels and larger tires along with Bilstein 5100’s all the way up in the front though. I’ve got the speedo recalibrated for the tire size and still off 1-2 maybe even 3 MPG at times compared to what the computer says. I consistently get 15.5-16 MPG when driving it around town and 17-19 when on long interstate runs when calculated out by hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That’s not necessarily true. My boss has a 14 Silverado 1500 with the 5.3 and he has over 300K on it with nothing more than brakes, tires and a tranny and torque replacement. He may be an exception to the norm but it’s not out of the question. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I read that as commercial vehicles. Most states have that law. For passenger vehicles such as cars, pickup trucks and SUV’s I’m betting that law doesn’t apply. Your fenders should be legal enough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I want to know more of the legal reason you had to have mud flaps to drive it off the lot? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That’s good to know. I will have to watch this on my truck. Thanks for the heads up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I know it’s possible because most of not all police cruisers have this function. It’s like a button on the dash that activates it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
