I have a 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD High Country with 6.6 diesel equipped with tow package. It has dedicated trailer brake and trailer fuses within the primary fuse box under the hood. My passenger side trailer blinkers and brake lights are not working. I've traced the lack of 12v power all the way up to the 10a fuse dedicated to the right side trailer brake/signal light (fuse #17). I have replaced the fuse, re-tested, and still no power. The left side trailer brake/signal light (fuse #14) has 12v power going to it, tested on the top of the fuse when the flashers are on, but the right side has nothing. I've also swapped and then replaced the trailer parking lights relay switch (relay #63) and still nothing. Is this most likely an issue with fuse box or something else supplying power or ground to the fuse box? Thanks for the help... this is the craziest thing.
I have a 2018 Chevy Silverado Texas edition. My question involves my trucks 120VAC outlet and the many 12VDC outlets. I want to power a device that requires 300 watts from my truck. It’s a powerful laptop charger basically. the 120V outlet my truck comes with is a pathetic 150 watts. Can anything be done about that? Also, I can use a 300 watt AC/DC inverter instead. The inverter works fine but that puts 25 amps through my cigarette lighter which blows the 15 amp fuse. can I swap the fuse for a 30amp? I know of fords with 30 amp fuses. Seems like my truck is electrically very wimpy. Surely the outlet and cable is rated for 30+ amps so I should be fine.... right?
