I bought a 2015 2500HD Sierra with regular tow mirrors, recently upgraded to the tow mirrors with the amber front lights. After install, the amber lights only turn on after unlocking the doors and then naturally they time out. Will not turn on as running lights. Any suggestions?
New vibrations after clutch job . Any suggestions?
I have a 2011 GMC with the towing mirrors that are power mirrors, I checked the plug in at the door, there was 12V going to the plug. So I thought it may be the switch, and it’s not the switch. While I had the door panel off where the switches go I noticed a little black plug in with a red end disconnected. Not sure what it goes to. I don’t have a mirror wiring diagram or a wiring diagram at that but thought it was strange to see a plug in that had a little Christmas tree plug just hanging around. I’ve checked the fuses(before replacing the switch), and all of them were good. Is there something I’m missing here? If someone has had this issue before or has a wiring diagram to the mirrors it would help me tremendously. I can’t move my mirrors due to being afraid I’m going to shatter the glass. That’s one main thing that’s bugging me besides trying to chase that ominous “SERVICE AIRBAG” light. I figured I’d have the techs when they replace the passenger side air bag clear it in their system and see if it stays off once they replace the airbag. I’ll be honest, before I owned this truck, someone did a piss poor job of wiring in a security system(even though it came with one), and a remote start(even though it came with that from the factory as well). So I’ve had to fix those issues, and the only issue I’m having that’s bugging me now is the mirrors. Like I said if someone has had a similar issue please feel free to share or if someone has a wiring diagram to where the mirrors go to so I can see why I’m not getting any movement out of my power mirrors. Thanks a bunch.
I am currently in the market for a camper and I am wondering how much weight I can tow. I have 2019 Silverado 1500 RST 5.3 V8 crew cab short bed. From what I can find online I should be “okay”, but really wanted some feedback from those of you that have a similar setup. I am aware the 2500 is the ideal setup, but that will be down the line a bit for me.
Truck Trailering Info:
GAWR RR 3800lbs
Max Payload 1819lbs
Max Tongue Weight 960lbs
Curb Weight 5281lbs
The camper I am looking at has a dry weight of 6300lbs and GVWR of 9,480lbs (no intent to load our camper down or travel with full tanks). Hitch weight of the camper is 680lbs. 32’ 11” tongue to bumper. Really only looking at going camping within 100 miles on the weekends.
We typically travel light with basic necessities for hook up campgrounds (clothes, food, chairs).
any help would be great!

Hello everyone! I just recently purchased a 2021 Sierra 1500 3.0L which will mainly be used to tow my center console around to local lakes and to Florida a couple times a year. I did NOT get the max trailering package mainly due to a mix up and having to switch trucks because someone purchased the one I went to look at and I didn't notice (yeah).
My boat is a 24' center console and weights about 2500lbs, plus around 800lbs for the engine, around 800lbs for fuel (105gal tank) and the trailer. My best guess is between 4,500-5,500lbs. When towing to Florida the rear end sagged quit a bit. I picked up some Airlift 5000 air bags and compressor hoping this will resolve the sagging but now I am wondering if it will help at all. We used to tow with a 2018 Tahoe that had the max trailering package so it had air bags on it already. To be completely honest, I do not know exactly what the 9.76" rear axle and 3.42 axle ratio in the max trailering package will help which is what comes in the max trailering package. I know it has heavy-duty rear springs as well which I figure would of helped with this sagging.
Will I be creating problems with the air bags? Obviously I don't really want to trade in the truck already for a new one due to the lost money on having to pay taxes twice, not to mention the loss in value from having 2,000 miles on it already.
