Gave it a quick bath yesterday. Seems like the paint flaking is getting worse. What is it with GM and white paint? It can't be that hard to get right. Has anyone had any luck getting GM to fix anything like this? Truck has just under 60k miles, is a 2015, and is far from abused. Theres absolutely no reason this should be happening, and no way in hell its from rock chips. I'm the second owner, not sure if that will matter to them.


Also this started BEFORE the wide wheels went on, when it was still on stockers.

Took another camping trip with it, and sadly never thought to get a picture of the truck and camper.

I know, Iím disappointed in myself.

Did great. Did a little test with and without the equalizer weight distribution hitch and there was a noticeable difference in ride quality with the bars attached, seemed much smoother with the bars than without.

Even though I donít really need them, Iíll continue to use them for any high speed driving (I do take them off in curvy campground roads as they were a little noisy, though some grease on the head seems to have quietened it down).

Was fun doing a full lock turn in the cul-de-sac at the end of the campground in the dark, having to back up even to get a tighter turn out of it, (Iíd have not been able to do this without the truckís rear view camera, I was mere inches away from the bumper).

Iíd have never thought a long bed dually would turn a 32í travel trailer in that small of a spot, but it did.

I did get the clevis pin fr8terfxr had mentioned in the camper towing pics thread and this worked great at keeping the cord out of the way, even worked after Iíd wrapped the pipe insulation around the cord.

Had to stop and clean the shorts out however....

Was leaving on the park entrance road (unlined road with a speed limit of 25, but thatís too fast for a full size truck and camper really) approaching a right hand corner and here comes a Cummins with some shirtless dude and a cowboy hat barreling around it with a 25í+ travel trailer in tow taking up the entire road.

So I slammed on the brakes, anti-locks on front working overtime, and kept hugging the ditch line waiting for impact. Probably lucky I didnít slide the front end into him.

He jerks it over to his curb, but wasnít slowing down much, until his trailer was at my front fender, then he seemed to finally realize the predicament his sh1tty driving had put us into and slammed on his brakes, by that time though I was stopped.

He got slowed down enough to get by me, him checking his mirror seeing if heíd cleared me, and my hand thrown out my window showing my sheer displeasure at his driving abilities.

The rest of the trip home was uneventful, and now the LMM is down getting the bi-yearly oil and filter change in preparation for the next trip.

And ordered up some pto plate gaskets from merchant, hopefully thatíll stop the slightly seeping Allison.

Over the last 2 weeks, installed the Edge CTS2 Insight, changed the oil and installed the 5" exhaust. Still need to change the fuel filter one of these days.

How often do you change your fass filters?

I do it yearly. Or 15/30k miles what ever comes first. I usually drive about 15k miles a year so it fall in line with the yearly filters changes. I also have a pressure gauge I watch every now and then. If I see the pressure dropping I would change them.
