It's part of the trailer theft system and as mentioned previously, you can unplug the 7 way to stop it from flickering. I have a 44' GN enclosed car hauler with a lot of lights and I've left it...

I'd imagine it will have normal levels of heat/defrost on unless the driver turns the heat up to HI. I am not sure and it's just speculation based on how my truck seems to operate, but that's how the...

That was put and paste directly from the HVAC description and operation in GM Service Information.

The important part to remember is that the driver must have the temperature turned up at or...

Going through 30-33 gallons of fuel at 10-11 MPG while towing is fine with me. I usually only tow 650-700 miles per day so it's usually just one fuel stop mid day. I agree with the others that...

From what I understand, it was a few early built trucks and the noise will be obvious when you drive the truck. If you haven't noticed it in the first couple weeks of ownership than your truck is not...

I've pulled ~17k pounds (43' Featherlite triple axle dual car race trailer) several times and I find the truck is happiest in 9th gear at any speed from 60-75 MPH on flat land. It locks the...

The variable assist isn't new technology and the previous generation of 2017-2019 HD trucks also had that system. It's not pure electronic. It's still a hydraulic recirculating ball gear box, but...

I've driven a 3500 HD with the HD front spring package (my truck) and another one without it. I could not tell any difference in ride quality from mine to my buddy's truck. Tire pressure makes more...

I've definitely noticed the same thing on my 2020. I have 11k miles and I've never seen the elevated idle during a regen like on all my previous L5P trucks. This truck seems to be a little more...

If they measure the road force as being excessive and they can't flip them on the rim and reduce then you're likely going to fix it with new tires. The bad part is that I've already had to replace...

I was surprised when I was ordering my new truck that the option to "upgrade" to the Michelin tires wasn't available for 2020. After all the previous issues we've seen with the Goodyear SRA Wranglers...

Agree that there isn't as much adjustment to get the wheel as low as on my 2018. I did get used to it quickly and ended up setting the seat position a little higher up to get it comfortable.

So riddle me this.....

I'd imagine the reason you don't see it on the base trucks is because they don't have 20" wheels with the same tires. We have not witnessed this on any trucks that don't...

The solution is likely at least one tire to be replaced and the rest to be road force balanced or force matched to reduce the shit ton of road force they're likely at. I'd imagine a dealer out there...

It's a combo of both, but crap tires are definitely the majority of the concern. I have a early built 2020 Silverado 3500 High Country and it shook like a mofo. We've replaced two tires and spent...

What's your TPW on the truck? I'd imagine they'll have everything worked out well before the truck is scheduled to be built.
