Truck friends! I am looking to find an OEM rear bumper for my trail boss. Looks like someone bumped mine and although most don't notice it, its driving me crazy. I am looking for a used one that someone pulled from their truck or a decently priced OEM retailer. I've called around and it seems no one has stock in salvage yards yet of these trucks. Any help would be great!
Any help before I have to leave the truck at the dealer for a few days would be great.
Dual 7 pin and 4 pin connector
Test the 7 pin : 8 volts when grounded to the wiring harness
Test the 4 pin : 7-8 volts when grounded to the wiring hardness
Test the 7 pin : 8 volts when grounded to the Frame
Test the 4 pin : 7-8 volts when grounded to the Frame
7-8 Volts on when testing at the fuse panel under the hood. Grounded to the engine block.
Relay seems good, all 4 fuses are good. Other Fuses like lights, radio and wipers all bring back 12v range.
I am not sure where to go from here. I don't want to miss a ground wire or something.
I did clean and re-attach the ground wire next to the brake controller under the rear of the truck.

Anyone using the GM trailer TPMS optional sensors?

First time posting.
Have been expereincing intermittent brake lights staying on after engine shut down for several weeks. Took it to the dealership, who ran a diagnostic on the truck and came back with "all things look normal, no codes". By the time I got home, the brake lights were in a state of constant "on" and I was able to restart the truck without applying the brake, even with the key fob outside the vehicle. Received several Onstar warnings to "Service Parking Brake". The parking brake had engaged and would not release. I disconnected the battery for 20 minutes, reconnected the battery which cleared the code. Called the dealership and was told I would have to leave it with them for awhile (several days to a week) to find out what the issue is. Would be ok except they do not provide a loaner car and rentals are thru the roof in our area ($100/day) so I have been living with this inconvenience until I can find an alternative way to work (80 miles rt).
Then this happened over the past weekend:
While driving back from the lake with my boat in tow, the truck went into a critical brake failure mode. Here is the series of events. Moored boat at dock and went to retrieve truck to remove boat from water. Could not unlock door on truck with FOB. Truck was "dead". No voltage activity. Used 12v portable jump pack to start vehicle. Let run for @20 min before proceeding to drive home with boat attached. Check engine light was on for 30 seconds then went out, but no warning dialog boxes. After we were on the road for @15 min, in rapid succession, I received the following warning dialog boxes: Service Trailer Brake System Service ESC Service Parking Brake Brake System Failure - 62 MPH Top Speed Check engine warning light Traction Control Off warning light ABS Off warning light As soon as I saw this, I tried to apply the brakes and they went to the floor. As you might imagine, it was chaotic in the vehicle when it became apparent that the vehicle along with the 6000lbs of Boat/trailer in tow was not going to stop in any timely fashion. Along with the trailer brake failure and vehicle brake reduction, the backup surge brakes on the trailer would not engage due to the lack of quick inertia braking force. I had the pedal to the ground and eventually we came to a stop. The rest of the ride home (2 miles) was a 5mph white knuckle event. The insult to the injury is there has been no warnings, email, text or posted on account from Onstar about this series of events but... I did get one on the same day that my Oil change is due. I am posting the screen shots I took after we came to a stop.
It is being towed to the dealership tomorrow. I will let you know what happens. I absolutely love my truck. It is the 5th Chevy that Ive owned, and sadly the worst one of the bunch. M

I have a 2019 Sierra HD with integrated brake controller. I'm towing a 5th wheel camper with two axles and electric brakes on each. Behind the camper I'm town an ATV trailer with two axles, but only one of them has an electric brake. Towing either of the trailers individually there are no issues with the trucks brake controller to control the brakes on the trailer. But with both trailers connected the truck won't apply any 'juice' to the brakes. It does nothing - no brakes on their trailer. When I manually apply the brake controller it does nothing. GM is telling me the truck is only designed to handle two sets of electric brakes and if I want to handle 3, I would need to add an after market controller to control the 2nd trailer separately. I can understand that, but does it make sense the trucks computer/controller would not apply any 'juice' to the brakes when it senses too much resistance via the 3 sets of brakes? Has anyone had this issue? How did you resolve?
