    2015 Silverado 1500 LT Double Cab with Max Tow Package
  1. page edited: The recall doesn't involve that part. https://www.edmunds.com/car-news/2014-15-chevrolet-silverado-gmc-sierra-recalled-for-seatbelt-problem-stop-sale-order-issued.html Copy of gm warranty special coverage 18128.pdf
  2. I haven't used Amsoil but my 2015 1500 5.3 just turned 45K and although I have only owned for a year, I pretty much strictly use it for towing our 27' Airstream trailer, so I opted to have the tranny service done. I have only driven it home from the dealer, but it sure seems to be shifting much smoother. So, I think the tranny service in general is probably a good idea doing before the suggested 90K on the service manual. Amsoil wasn't an option at the dealer but it sounds like these Silverado owners and even the OP swear by it.
  3. AirLift WirelessOne

    Yes that is where I mounted it. From everything I read, no it's not setup for you to use to service the tires.
  4. AirLift WirelessOne

    I love my AirLift WirelessOne, I mounted it just behind the cab on passenger side of the frame on my 2015 Silverado 1500. It's pretty much where they recommend the installation. I love the ability to fine tune my weight distribution on the fly while towing. I keep the remote on the visor and as long as you don't take it outside and leave it on a bumper and drive away, you should be fine.
  5. I purchased my 2015 5.3 used last year and it did not have the tow mirrors and the dealers in SoCal didn't have a clue what the max tow package was. I had to have them send me a picture of the RPO codes in the glove box. The tow mirror exchange was plug-N-play and very ease for a DL8 and only cost $125. https://www.am-autoparts.com/products/item/AM-1295053246.html?trk_msg=SVQ5QJIE94VKFFOGK8IB3KKQFS&trk_contact=T86R75NLPDE7HMGRA9L5NCC2PK&trk_module=tra&trk_sid=930FV8K6RST6J0QE1LI328H2OK&utm_source=Transactional&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=https%3a%2f%2fwww.am-autoparts.com%2fproducts%2fitem%2fAM-1295053246.html&utm_campaign=OrderConfirmation&utm_content=AM+Order+Confirmation
  6. Underhood Fuse Question

    Thank you for the info, it may be very helpful if I ever have an issue with that fuse. I tapped it tonight and everything works great. Thanks again. Dave
  7. Underhood Fuse Question

    So how did this work out for you, did you use the eng misc fuse or go direct to the battery with and inline fuse?
  8. Dual Battery Installation

    It's not cheap but this one listed earlier in the thread is still an option. http://www.atct-guardiansys.com/
  9. I work about 1/2 mile from the Bilstein headquarters in Poway, CA and the other day at lunch I knocked on their door and one of the engineers invited me in to discuss the shocks. He said the 4600 are exactly the same shocks as the 5100 but 5100 are adjustable to work with trucks that are lifted. He said that since I just wanted to use my truck for towing and if I didn't think I would want to lift it later, then save the money and go with the 4600. Which I did and love them.
  10. I have a 2015 Sierra LT 2WD with the Max tow package with 43K and bought it used with 38K, so don't know it's history. I pull an Airstream 27FB and the shocks were so shot I couldn't dial in the weight distribution hitch. Put 4600 on it last week with 10 ply tires and the change is like night and day. This is not my daily driver though and my intention was to make it more like a 2500, but I couldn't be happier with the results. Took it out on a 80 mile test ride over the roads that use to give me fits and it solved all my issues. The ten ply Michelin defender tires ride great but not for a daily driver.
  11. HOW TO: Replace your 2014+ Door Lock Actuator

    I ordered the complete actuator and picking it up today, but I saw some videos for replacing the motor and it looks doable. I wish someone would have made a video of the 20115 actuator replacement. Plenty of the 2007 to 2014 but I couldn't find any for the 2015 Silverado / Sierra model. Anyone know of one please post the link. Like to think I'm pretty savy about searching for stuff but I have come up with bupkis.
  12. Proper usage of Tow Mirrors

    Hey guys, I just installed my tow mirrors as well. Seems like the top one is set close to the side as mentioned. But the bottom one seemed like it needed to be up a bit to cover the blind spot. But now I'll have to check and see if my rear tire is visible. Thanks for the expert advice, I do like backing into parking spots rather than putting the bed of the truck into traffic before you can even turn your wheel.
  13. What Weight Do You Tow?

    I tow a Airstream Int'l Sig 27FB 7600 GVW initial trip weighed in at 6900 lbs with my 2015 Silverado 5.3 with the max tow package rated at 11,200lbs.
