  1. I have about 16000 miles on my 3.0L Duramax. So far I love it. I average 22 mpg city and I've gotten 30 mpg hwy (driving 75 mph or less) on numerous occasions. BTW, these numbers are based on tank to tank fill-ups, not the rolling average displayed on the instrument panel. Yes... I'm a bit of a nerd. Bottom line, I think it's pretty darn quick, quiet and very smooth. Lots more torque than a 5.3L (which I borrowed and drove in the past). Since the Duramax has a 100k powertrain warranty (a big plus), I will not do any modifications during the warranty period.
  2. I love my 3.0 as well. I'd be concerned about making mods before 100k miles of powertrain warranty. You could void it.
  3. The 2020 has Wi-Fi but not wireless Carplay. I opted not to pay for Wi-Fi and use my cell phone hot spot if I want Wi-Fi in the truck. I have Verizon and find it's coverage has been very good. You may wish to contact Verizon to check your phone for the latest tower and firmware updates. I suspect that since you are using two cell carriers (cell phone and truck each have their own cell carrier per your note) that both will experience dropouts separate of each other. I bet that Verizon will , at times, work where AT&T drops out.
  4. I took a trip from NC to NY in December. I typically drive 5-9 mph over the speed limit. Here is a true tank to tank mileage log. In mixed city driving the instrument panel typically shows 22-25 mpg. My best mileage occurs when I drive 55 mph. Very happy.
  5. I have the 3.0L w/ 10 Speed. LOVE IT. Very quick. Smooth. 22-25mpg City. 28-30 MPG hwy. Pulls my heavy 21' Hurricane Deck boat like a charm. My son has a 5.3L and I pulled the same boat. It was working much harder than the 3.0. BTW I like the Diesel sound. Sounds like power.
  6. I need to wire a backup camera on my 2020 Silverado for my Lear Cap. Is there an opening in the floorboards? Routing wires to the rear vs front. Thanks.
  7. It's a dark brown. I have the LTZ Silverado. The dash and console are dark brown. The leather seats are a beige/grayish color. I like the combo.
  8. Great! I just got a set for my 2020 Silverado. Very good fit and quality. I also used a 15% coupon. Very fast delivery. Unfortunately I couldn't save shipping costs by picking it up locally because the closest dealer was not an option for purchase.
  9. I have a 2020 3.0L Duramax with about 2500 miles. At 1500 miles a solenoid failed causing a transmission failure. It was still drivable (Limp home mode). They fixed it and it has been good so far. That said, I really love this powertrain. Lots of torque. Very smooth 10 speed transmission. Great mileage. I average 22 mpg city and 28+ highway. I really hope that was my last and only issue.
  10. I have a center console. In past trucks, I'd tap into the cigarette lighter. Does someone have some pictures of how to remove the console.
  11. I just bought a 2020 Silverado 1500 with a Duramax 3.0L. Eventually I plan to buy a travel trailer to pull behind it. I would like to hear from similar owners about their experiences travel trailering. How big is your trailer? Weight? Comments and experiences? Thanks.
  12. My best current solution so far is this item on Amazon. It's both a front and rear view camera and video recorder. You mount it over the current mirror. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PFPJ2DJ/?coliid=I1UC1KRATENIYE&colid=21EM86YNKD2NO&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
  13. Sorry for the confusion. There are 3 cameras (rear view camera, backup camera and bed view camera). The rear view camera is mounted next to the bed view camera high on the back of the cab. On the LTZ (package?) there is an electronic rear view display built in to the rear view mirror. You can use is in video mode or mirror mode. It uses the camera mounted high on the back of the cab not the tail gate. That is what is being blocked.
  14. I just bought a 2020 Silverado 1500 LTZ and plan to add a Lear 100XQ truck cap to it. The truck has an awesome video rear camera which I use vs the mirror. I'm not talking about the "Backup" Camera. The rear view camera is mounted high up on the rear of the cab, not the tailgate. I'd like to somehow move that camera to the back of the truck cap (or wire in a new camera) and still use the OEM rear view display. Any thoughts?
