I am trying to get a lower set of running boards to make it easier to get in passenger door of the truck. I know a lot of people like to raise the trucks but we have used the 2" shackle lowering blocks and that didn't help much. Picked up some running boards and am planning on putting them under and just partially outside the original steps so each step is not so high. Gonna try to get the top of the bottom step at 7"-8" of the ground. Just curious if anyone had done this. Thanks.
Is there a way to monitor the trailer tire pressure and temperature readings going down the road without having to keep going into the trailer setup screen? I must have over looked it if it is. Thanks.
Yes it works fine. Thanks for the reply
I'll look again but from what I remember there was no Home button or X button. Just full coverage of the camera's. On most other screens I have either the Home, Music etc. buttons or an X to end the screen. I'll have to hook up trailer and look again. Thanks for the replies,
Was setting up the trailer camera and wanted to get out of that view to program the trailer tire sensors. Wasn't sure how to get out of camera view so just turned off ignition and turned it back on. What am I missing to get out of the camera view? TIA...Sonny
I,ve got a 2020 2500 SLT with about 100 miles on it. Pulled out 6500 pound camper and got about 9.8 mpg. Same as out 2001 1500 with a 4.8 engine. But in all honesty, this truck doesn't seem to even know there is a trailer behind it. Most of our driving is short stop and go traffic of maybe 1-6 miles so gas mileage is not good. Says 10+. On the road during the first 500 mile without the trailer we got best 21.6 but mostly in the 17-18. I put this monster on the CAT scale Sat and it was 7080# with 1/2 tank of gas. I like all the camera's and safety features but sure miss the size of my 2001 1500 Silverado. As an only vehicle it is a challenge in small parking lots. Did put 2" drop shackles to help load and unload but have not been able to bend the pinch welds enough to stop them hitting the springs causing the squeaking. Good luck with your decision. Note: do not know why the lines in the message.
This is what it mine looks like. Also checked and looks like about 60-65 feet long. Loom is not a split loom.
The wire loom is 1/2" on mine. Measured it to put it inside some stick-on conduit kinda stuff.
Because the only way you know someone is calling is the music goes off, no sound and maybe a phone number will show up on truck display. Have to reach over and turn volume up on truck to hear whoever is calling. Not only 2019’s. We have a 2020 2500HD. Same issue
I bought the one listed above and haven’t installed it on the trailer yet. Did plugged it in just to make sure it connected ok. had to plug in the trailer 7 way connector to get it to go into trailer mode to see it. Already had 3 Rear View safety wired cameras on the trailer but wasn’t sure how to get cable for monitor into the cab. One day I’ll get them all hooked up and see what I like the best.
Just out of curiosity, dies any one know what it would take to make a trouble shooting cable that could be plugged into the trailer connector of the truck so it would think it had a trailer connected? Maybe an incadesant bulb wired to the running between running light connector and ground? don't know how much load it needs
I usually tow around 60 or just a little above towing but about 2500 pounds lighter with my trailer. Haven’t tried any faster towing yet. the old half ton didn’t too good going much faster
It’s a travel trailer and only weighs about 6500 pounds.
Thanks, I’ll order one next week.
