@tortiseshell, yes - that spot is an opening where it can go. It should just pull off of there fairly easily (maybe with a little help from a flathead). I got one added in the same spot on my truck. I had the shop wire it up for me when I had the B&W turnover hitch installed in the bed.
@NCCaptainMorgan, I can't speak to if your truck would come with the sensors or not...but I was able to purchase the sensors off of eBay for my 5th wheel travel trailer. Got the sensors added to the existing wheels at Sam's Club last week. Came home from Sam's Club and setup the sensors from the truck in dash screen. It basically had me release air from each tire (front driver's side, rear driver's side, rear passenger side, front passenger side) and I was all set! Here is the eBay link to the ones that I purchased: https://www.ebay.com/p/25034266056?iid=254823853923 I
I have a 2020 Silverado 3500 and went with a 2018 Keystone Impact 351. Picked it up in Waco, TX and pulled back to St. Louis, MO area. Truck did great! I also had the dealer swap out the 5th wheel for a Reese Goosebox 20k.
@jojo ma, I gave up trying after seeing the responses in here. I worked to get it working for a couple weeks and was never able to. It's just for your automatic braking
Thanks for this article guys, I have been having the issue and the dealership forgot to check the brakes when I went in for an oil change a couple months ago. Drives me crazy to hear the brakes so squeaky. I have 20k miles on mine and it's been doing it intermittently for the past few months. Always happens at low speeds with light braking, like in traffic or pulling slowly into my garage. At first I thought it was because I live off of gravel but my 2012 Silverado 1500 never squeaked like this. I have printed out the bulletin as well and intend to bring it in with me on the next oil change so
@2020-2500, I'm getting the B&W turnover ball added to my 2020 Chevrolet 3500 srw next Wednesday. I also don't have the factory puck system in my truck. I called around to a few places and most seemed like it was going to cost just under $1,000 to get this done. I found a local place that a friend owns that is going to get me done between $800 - $900. I'm preparing for getting a bigger toy hauler most likely next spring (or if a great deal comes up over the winter) so I want my truck ready. I'm intending to get a Reese Goosebox for my trailer because I like the idea of not having to pull o
@GearHead71, I'd be interested to see what the bed view camera and the rear view mirror look like from inside when you have the MX4 up like that. That's the bed cover I'm looking to get as well and haven't found any pics of the cover up like that. Any chance you'd be willing to either let me know whether or not those cameras are blocked or post a couple pics of the camera views with that up? Thanks, Alan
Thanks @ShotgunZ71! I haven't ordered the camera yet but I intend to get one . That's cool that your camera fit into the Furrion prep spot. Did you have to run the cable on the top of your trailer or was there an existing cable for you to tie into with the Furrion prep package? I've seen some trailers with that already and just curious how that works. Hopefully your issues with the camera get figured out!
Out of curiosity, has anyone seen a 5th wheel with the transparent trailer camera? It would seem that the wire would be long enough in most people's cases. I intend to upgrade from a bumper pull to a 5th wheel toy hauler (that's about 40 ft long) next year and I can't seem to find any YouTube videos or info about someone running the transparent trailer camera on a 5th wheel. Thanks for any info! Alan
@gjohnston7, that's my fault...I called it the "cheese grater test" but it's actually the "cheese cloth test". They said that they had to put a cheese cloth over something to check the amount of particulates coming through the exhaust. I found a similar article about it: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/MC-10161931-9999.pdf Sorry for the confusion on the name of the test.
That's disappointing, especially since not all of the HD trucks have the button for adaptive cruise control.
@jojo ma, I'm also curious about this. My truck is a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 LTZ Z71 srw that has the adaptive cruise control button on the steering wheel but I can't ever get it to engage. Hitting the adaptive cruise button only seems to show the gap control adjustment. From reading the owner's manual, you're supposed to hold on the actual cruise control button and it should change the icon of the green cruise icon to actually have a vehicle in the icon rather than an arrow in the picture. But holding the cruise button doesn't appear to do anything for me except turn off my cruise contr
I'll keep an eye on my DEF usage and report back after I have some data but I don't have any trips planned for a couple weeks.
I got my brand new exhaust on Friday and only drove a couple times since then. However, they gave me some paperwork with a reference # of 20-NA-082. They're basically saying in the paper that newer model trucks have to use more DEF because of the increased emissions requirements. Hope this helps you guys! Alan
