    What engine? We have a 3.6l its brand new will have to keep an eye on it. Any chance they forgot to reset it. My "other" brand I did at 5k never reset and it sent a message at 7k to do it. Then again at 8k to reset. I finally reset it. I just go by miles anymore.
  3. Have you tried a USB version? I was having power supply issues amd fuse coordination was tricky, I"ve had good luck with my toaster moving to USB power.
  4. IDK really, maybe get a dash cam off Amazon and have it record your display changes and these text messages. Post that up on youtube. They are like $90. Do you have a GPS? https://thehackernews.com/2018/01/gps-location-tracking.html?m=1 On a less serious note, Do you have a cat? Or do you see cats near your vehicle often.. 🤔🤔🤔
  5. May incentives?

    Good or bad I'm on GM vehicle #3 this month. I could not do a 1500 at this time, numbers would not work out for me or our company. I don't know if it was just the local inventory was not over full or what, or they needed to move some other stuff, but I could not find a 1500 for close to what I paid for any of my 3 Rams, 2-1500's, 1-2500. After debating it with my local dealer we thought April was about as good as they have seen it for my situation, I looked for 5mo for the Suburban to get where it was. I don't have month restrictions so I can buy these whenever. So I just wait it out in most cases till I see a decent deal and throw them some comps on stuff they have on the lot. The stock numbers are usually sequential so I mix it up in case they want to move older or newer stuff. So here is how I calculated the below, my out the door price (includes tax, tag, doc, no $ down) divide by sticker price. '19 Burb = 19% off sticker (with trade was 29% off total but then added a warranty for $2100, so not sure exact on this one % wise) '19 Colorado = 17% sticker no trade '19 Terrain =19% sticker no trade Two for work, one for personal. Most of that is conquest rebates and GM Financial. FCA would beat the Terrain $ and rebates with like another smaller Cherokee which we already have one, but it was just easier to text my sales woman and have her work the deal for that GMC. Sign for that in the AM. Probably could get 2% lower finance rates going non GM Finanical, they are simple loans we can always refi, later if needed.
  6. Strut is super free if you have any electrican friends, its thrown out daily at every job site. Then I would do some measurements on RC car wheels? Looks like a great idea. Might have to try this one out.
  7. If you get in a bind.... Any technical schools near you like UTI, or Lincoln Tech, or community college with an auto program.... Kids in the afternoom class that get off work early hang out near by before class. Usually starts at 3pm or 3:30, so like 2pm'ish Find the closest gas station/mini mart, 90% of them will have pick up trucks, with stacks (huge exhausts) and tow mirrors, they will hang out before class, go up and ask them for some help. This is a very serious response as I was one of those kids 23 years ago and would have been glad to help a person out. Or you can call the school and see if they could have the auto tech or body shop kids to troubleshoot.
  8. We just went forward facing with ours last Sunday only made 2 rides with it so far, so have some catching up to do. Our daughter enjoys the front facing so far. Will try out the seatbelt set up.
  9. If the repair does not work out, there are many new take off's out there for various reasons. I have a 1500lb tommy gate on my truck, they were going to "trash" the bumper and tailgate,,,,, when I asked for the bumper and the tailgate they were surprised, I figured it was a no brainer to grab the gate and bumper, I paid for it. Can try www.car-part.com if local craigslist does not work out.
  10. Does it have the latch system back there, I read with our new seat that the "latch" system was only good to 40lbs? We have a little while till we hit that weight, and was surprised to read that with our seat. Will just have to figure out the seatbelt thing at that time.
  11. Going back to what you thought you were towing, your more than fine, I think you might be heavy on that quoted tounge weight but you over estimated which is the better way to go. You got this covered......IMO your in the weeds going over way too many #'s, pick a decent drop value for your ball mount, or maybe they even rent them at Uhaul with tthe trailer, IDK, hook up the trailer, load it, strap it down and, get home and get wrenching.... Sounds like you wont be pulling much or often so try not to overspend on some super fancy set up. Happy motoring...😄
  12. Class 3 hitch can be used with a standard ball mount or a WD set up. Weight Distribution is a type of ball mount system with some bars and sometimes sway control depending how fancy you get. Check out etrailer.com enter your truck info it will go over the rest. Don't forget to check for a local trailer place they can set you up usually cheaper then most online places and have better service. I went with a weigh-safe ball mount very nice set up, some even have built in scales, mine did not. Another great reference. https://www.curtmfg.com/understanding-towing/introduction
  13. Looks good, have fun,, I moved my sisters and BIL's 34' first week of April to their new camp site. Great family memories camping and going to the races. Of course we forgot to check the very last awning on the rear and he had to adjust it later that week, but was fun moving it and getting it into place.
  14. GM Conquest rebates are really high right now, look at the marketting and commericals, I know GM is all in on grabbing anyone and everyone. Most of those numbers listed 13%-20% off MSRP include some sort of 1998 or newer different mfg in the household. You don't get any special treatment with having the brand in house already. Certain leases carry additional rebates, but once again being free and clear and repeate buyer will did not pay off in my case this month. As a current all Chevy household (my business excluded) ,which I have been for a long time also, my rebates were less having all chevy in house vs having atleast one other mfg in the house. The point GM appears to be making is similar to Marriott hotels, they say they won't dump prices and rebates like Ram doing just to move product. GM might have the base and think they can move what they have and maintain profits. Marriott will not just slash prices on their rooms to sell out, they have a pretty set price with partner discounts but they wont do fire sales to move rooms. Ram clearly played a number game Q1 with the old models, and moving them into the dealer network, then building in rebates on top of those dealer network trucks, its not sustainable by any means. But they also are betting on the quality of their 19' model to gain momentum and get traction in a pretty close market. I also try to watch monthy for rebates and the sort I watched for 5 months for my personal buy, and made out very well in April. 19% off MSRP I was happy with that.
