I have just over 1,000 miles on the 2019 Trail Boss 4.3L motor. This morning for the first time I noticed the oil pressure gauge dropped to 30 when pulling into a parking spot and then sitting idle. When I revved the engine a little bit the pressure went back up to about 50-60. I have never seen it at 30, mostly stays like 40-60 range. Any cause for concern? As a reference I drove about 10 miles, mostly highway, and it is 60-64 degrees outside.
What do you all get for pressure readings with your motors - maybe list idle pressure and cruising pressure with the motor type.
I purchased my truck a few months ago and most of the time i need to press the button 2-5 times to drop my tailgate without any help. With a little (and i mean 5 lbs) of pulling while pressing the button it works most of the time, even then i might have to press it twice. The truck is a new body 2019 Silverado LT 4x4. It started doing this day one, i thought it might just need to work in/break in and it did not.
Is anyone else having this issue?
If so do you know how to fix it?
I have tried with the vehicle on level ground and even then it does not work all the time also i tried it on grounds where the front is up a few inches and i would still have to press at least twice. Every 50 times or so it will go down with one press.
Any help will be appreciated.

My wife and I were going to have a picnic by the ocean so went on a sandy (beach sand) road, meant for off road vehicles only. I switched to 4 Hi and while drove in the sand at less than 10mph. After about 5 minutes or so I had warnings of "service ESC" and "steering assist is reduced, drive with care". The truck, which is a 2019 Trail Boss, performed fine and I did not notice any difference in handling. I tried taking off the traction control, putting the truck in park, shutting the truck off for a while, but still the lights stayed on. The lights went off after driving about 5 minutes in 2 Hi. I also recieved emails from OnStar "there is an issue with the ABS system" and "there is an issue with Stabilitrack traction control". I don't think this is normal so it is at the dealer now. They said the initial results are the yaw sensor triggered for some reason...I don't think this is normal, the truck has 800 miles on it, but any ideas what this is or what it means? Thanks.
Hey folks, just wanted to introduce myself real quick since i finally decided to join up instead of just steal all of your knowledge like I've been doing for so long. Lots of great people in here obviously, so glad to join and hopefully add to it. New to this forum, not new to chevy trucks, and picking up my new L5P on Friday out in Weatherford TX. This will be my third Duramax, stoked as hell to give the L5P a shot.
Including a couple of pics the dealer sent me yesterday before finalizing the deal over the phone.
To do list already:
VLED low beams
Looking into Morimoto LED projector fog lamp replacements
Add factory clearance lights (who the hell builds a 1 ton without them?!)
Lighted black bowtie
Looking forward to being a valuable member and asset.
