  1. Here is a link to the South Main Auto video mentioned above. Part 1 Part 2
  2. This may be totally out in left field but, did you check the fuel filter housing for hairline cracks? Perhaps a fine crack is letting enough air leak into the system when it sets for a while and you lose prime.
  3. If by 'Wire Identity" you mean that there are different color wires going to the same pin location between the two plugs, it may not mean anything. If both outlets work properly and/or you test the pin-outs and they are the same value (12V, Ground, Active with brake pedal, etc) it probably just means whoever wired the plugs used some extra wire when they were installing them. If you mean that the pin-out values are different (a 12V pin on one measures to ground on the other) I would think whoever performed the installation didn't know what they are doing and you need to have it checked out.
  4. A really basic suggestion, get a dually, More stable and better towing capability,
  5. I have always stated that following the forums (for any vehicle) can be very disheartening. You have to remember that forums are generally populated by those who are having problems with their truck/car/motorhome/boat/plane etc. I like to consider the fact that you see a few dozen or hundred requests for help or complaints and then think about the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of these vehicles on the road. That helps me put the problem list into perspective. I'm not saying that there are no legitimate complaints as all vehicles - powered or towed - can have poor designs, faulty parts, frequent breakdowns, and shoddy workmanship (especially as they get older) but you have to weigh everything for a fair evaluation. Many years ago I was thinking about buying a used motorhome. I went to the forums and almost decided to forget the idea. Fortunately, I proceeded with my purchase and had many fun years with my RV. Did I have some major expenses? YES. Was the motorhome 15 years old? YES. But when any vehicle gets old, problems become more prevalent. So take forum posts with a grain of salt. If you find valid complaints keep them in mind as you select your vehicle but don't stifle yourself from making a decision solely based on forum comments. Good Luck.
  6. Check out this page. https://www.keylessshop.com/programgmkey
  7. By adding a single wire to the BCM under the dash on the driver's side (at least in the 2016 and 2018 HD trucks) you can get the side mirror cargo lights to turn on whenever the truck is in reverse (when the truck is running) or the cargo light switch is turned on (when the truck is turned off). You need to run a wire from pin connector 26 on the Brown BCM block to pin connector 26 on the Pink BCM block (see picture). Following are some pictures of the amount of light put out with this mod.
  8. I swapped out the standard safety chain hooks with these Grade 70 hooks. https://www.crofttrailer.com/csh38g70-3-8-clevis-slip-hook-grade-70-with-latch/
  9. Cupping is frequently caused by weak shocks/struts. I had a car that had chronic cupping problems. Had it aligned, tires rotated, etc. None of those things helped. New shocks all around and new tires solved the problem. You might want to check the shocks as part of your investigation. Good luck.
  10. You don't even need to use a diode to get the lights to come on in reverse. By adding a single wire to the BCM under the dash on the driver's side (at least in the 2016 and 2018 HD trucks) you can get the side mirror cargo lights to turn on whenever the truck is in reverse (when the truck is running) or the cargo light switch is turned on (when the truck is turned off). You need to run a wire from pin connector 26 on the Brown BCM block to pin connector 26 on the Pink BCM block (see picture). Following are some pictures of the amount of light put out with this mod.
  11. I purchased this system I installed on my 35' living quarters horse trailer. It works fine and provides a view behind and inside the trailer. Good luck with your decision.

  12. As pointed out by Ravenkeeper, I misstated the pin number on the pink BCM block. It is correctly pin 26 on both blocks. I have made the correction in the post. This simple modification will cast quite a bit of light toward the back of the truck along the sides...and it's FREE By adding a single wire to the BCM under the dash on the driver's side (at least in the 2016 and 2018 HD trucks) you can get the side mirror cargo lights to turn on whenever the truck is in reverse (when the truck is running) or the cargo light switch is turned on (when the truck is turned off).

  13. I forgot to mention that the 2500 I mentioned with the 4 Auto setting was a gasser, not a diesel. I understand the auto setting was limited to gas versions of the HD.
  14. An acquaintance had a 2500 HD (don't remember if it was a Chevy or GMC) that had the following settings. 2 Hi Auto 4 Hi 4 Lo I wish my 2018 3500 HD had the same set up. It would be nice to have the Auto setting for those hays when full 4x4 isn't needed. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I forgot to mention that the 2500 I mentioned with the 4 Auto setting was a gasser, not a diesel. I understand the auto setting was limited to gas versions of the HD. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I am sure this guy's 2500 had the 4-Auto option as I was thinking of buying it before I bought my original 2500 Diesel.
  15. Can these lines be seen from the front of the truck without removing the grille? With the grille guard installed it is a little more difficult to get the grille off. Thanks
