I read it the same way. My concern would be why have all these additives if they don't help for the first few thousand miles? That's the critical time isn't it? Kind of proves diyer's point then. Why spend the money? Buy the cheap stuff and change at 3000.
The OP has it right. His setup is taking too much weight off the truck. The trailer is rocking up and back and causing the bounce. They're not meant to take all the weight off the hitch. Here is a copy of the chart from the owners manual.
Understandable comment. However, go to the vehicle build section and check out Grumpy Bears 2015 Silverado 2WD thread. Long thread but all the details on changes are there and mileage data that is extensive. You'll pick the flag up when your done I suspect.
I go by mileage. The oil life monitor is nice, but just not comfortable depending on that alone. I use "Full Synthetics" and hold it to around 5,000 miles. The monitor generally says 30-35% left.
The suggestion was to put truck's transmission in neutral (take it out of park and let roll a little) not the transfer case. This will take the pressure off the drive line and may let it shift easier.
I have the same in a 2015. They can be stiff when they are cold. I generally shift the trans into neutral and then 4WD when it is still cold. Once it's warmed up it shifts easily on the fly.
