  1. I was having nearly the same problem with a new fifth wheel. Works great with my bumper bull flat bed trailer, all LED lights. About half the times I plugged in the fifth wheel, all LED lights, I would get the trailer not connected message. I just had to push the trailer plug in a bit further! You may also try cleaning the connections. Bed and bumper connections are in there factory postitions. Hope this helps.
  2. The link was just an example I found with a quick search looking for “GMC” and “tire pressure sensor”. If you have a a part number you need, just search for that part number. There is a very good chance you will find it. The price is better than the GMC dealers, that’s the point I was trying to make.
  3. Check Ebay. Many get the sensors when they buy a SUV/Truck off the dealers lot and don't need them. I picked up four for $75. One current item below: 4 OEM Tire Pressure Sensor TPMS for GMC Sierra 1500 2500 3500 HD Yukon XL 433MHz | eBay Hope this helps.
  4. The tank was installed by a dealer that sells Titan products. They do diesel repairs and upgrades. I didn't know this until I visited their shop. I took it as a good sign that they were very busy; it took them three days to work my job into their schedule. No problems with the tank other than the blow back on fill-up. Just slow the pump as you approach full. Listen and you can hear a chance the fuel and air flow sound as the tank gets near full. I did not have the blowback problem with the original equipment tank.
  5. On thing I failed to note in earlier post is the first fill-up warning. Air gets trapped when the tank is nearly full, pause the pump for a few seconds before topping off or you will get some fuel blow back!
  6. The good is the extra 55% on-board. With the cost of fuel going up, and the limits on credit card purchase at the local pump, that could be the ugly. The bad for off road is, the lack of a tank skid plate and a metal shield between the driveline and the tank that the original equipment has. All that being said, I’ll keep the Titan tank. Can anyone use an original tank and straps? Make me an offer.
  7. The light bak comes with a weatherproof plug with about a nine inch pigtail. The hole in the plastic third brake light housing is sealed wit a tight fitting rubber groment with a little silicon sealer for good measure. I live in Phoenix Arizona area. We have only had a total of about two inches of rain in since I mounted the light bar, no leaks yet.
  8. Only driven a couple of half tanks full so far, no problems. I'm sure the miles to empty is off, it has not changed since going to the bigger tank. A full tank shows about 700 miles to empty. In 15K miles I have been averaging 18.9 MPG. With a 36 gallon tank that's 680.4 miles. With the larger tank it should be 1,058.4 miles. The trucks computer is not aware of the extra fuel in the tank. If you add about 50% to the trucks estimate, you will be closer to the truth.
  9. This is the low rack with the light bar mounted in the lowest hole on the mounting brackets. There is no interferance with the rear camera view, or the in-bed camera view.
  10. I was finally able to get the truck out for a road trip with the new Titan tank. After a fill-up I put 400 miles on the truck. Usually takes 60-90 miles on the highway for the fuel gauge to come off the full mark. The new tank went to 175 miles before falling below full, 40 of those miles were in town. After the 400 mile trip the fuel gauge was at 11/16 of a tank. The truck did a software update today, but I had to unplug the iDash from the OBD port before it would install successfully. This is the first software update I have noticed the truck doing since I brought it home last February. It has been to the dealership for a free oil change and tire rotation once. They may have done an update then. Photos show old and new tank installed from the driver's side, and a couple of the tank just after it came out of the box.
  11. I received the replacement tank earlier this week. The box Titan ships the tank in is about 15 inches too long. Box was beat up pretty bad, gouges in the cardboard where the tank straps poked through and ripped the cardboard as the tank and straps slid back and forth inside the box. The tank is plastic and was in surprisingly good condition. I tried to do the replacement in the driveway, but I do not have the tools to disconnect the “quick connect” fuel line fittings. I got the old tank down, but was unable to disconnect the supply and return lines. Clearances under the truck would have made it hard to get the new tank in place under the truck, it hangs down about two inched lower, and the top sticks up higher. Going to a diesel repair shop next week to have the tank installed, I will let you know how it goes. The tank uses the original fuel pickup and level sender, so I expect the fuel level gauge to work as the original, just take longer to fall off the FULL mark. I have an iDash to backup that reading. I do expect the ‘Range’ calculation to be off in the low direction. After all, this tank is roughly 55% larger than the original equipment, so I expect the actual ‘Range’ to be half again further than reported. I think that is a good thing!
  12. Covid cabin fever got me, or I just got bored. Ordered the tank from Amazon, I’ll post some pictures when it arrives and I’ll try to install myself in the driveway.
  13. Anyone looked into or better yet installed the new Titan replacement fuel tank? 2020 GMC 2500 & 3500 Crew Cab, Short Bed (7010220) (titanfueltanks.com)
  14. iDash says my 3500 AT4 is at 184-187, takes about ten minutes to get there. I live in Phoenix area and have not towed any significant loads yet. The digital image of an analog gauge on the drivers display, could be read as 210 degrees.
