Got mine done today. The dealer I bought from has continued to duck my inquiries, but I stopped into a chevy dealer and they took care of me....

I was in Maine in mid Feb w -15* and she started right up, no heater and w the high idle, had heat quicker than I would have thought...

Finally got my block heater / regen recall and page in owners manual , free oil and state inspection . It’s took a Corona pandemic to get my block heater .
Everything seems fine , I hate taking anything to a dealer , I am content with my dealer I purchased the truck from even though I have to drive a extra 1/2 hr to get there I got the truck back in the same condition , no dents / scratches or mess in the interior .

That sucks about the dents brother ... My dealer did a great job its been 2 weeks , no leaks everything looks very professional , I think they remove the inner wheel wheel , looks like new clips and all .
Figure there working on a 70K + truck it should be that way .
As I said I travel an extra 1/2 for my dealer I use , the local dealers are hacks , I have had previous dealers got brand new trucks back with dents and grease all over the interior .
I have been using Bergeys GMC in Harleysville PA for years , great family owned and they have a huge selection of trucks and excellent service .

I just had this done a few weeks back. A block heater is not essential unless you live / travel to a region where temperatures consistently fall below zero. However, this is an open recall and you should be able to get service from your local dealer to install a replacement block heater. My local dealer warned me that a small loss of coolant was possible and to watch coolant levels in the days following service. Good luck.

Well I'm in Illinois outside of Chicago. Took it to the dealer for the Regen recall and asked about the block heater recall. Didn't hear anything for 2 weeks I called they said GM is not shipping to southern states. Never considered Illinois to be a southern state but I'm still waiting for mine to be done.

Not shipping to or haven't yet? I live in NJ so it's likely we're on a similar latitude, which means I would be considered a southern state as well (although by every measure known to man that's considered the NE part of the country). If it's not shipping to then my response to GM will be decidedly more unpleasant than if it's just haven't yet.

Well Gang here is the latest update. As of today June 12, 2020 I now have a new block heater installed in my truck. Not at all happy about it either. I live just over 5 miles from dealer. Took them 2 1/2 hours to complete the job WTF!!!!!
After over 2 hours
I asked what was taking soooooo long. Response oh well it was too hot to work on so we let it cool off for an hour. Fantastic what about the other 1 1/2 hours????? service bulletin says .4 hours. UNREAL mechanic must have baby hands. And to finish it off got home and found grease on my seat. So much for cleaning a vehicle because of Covid. Oh yeah it doesn't fit in our carwash so we couldn't wash it. TOTALLY USELESS!!!!!!!!!!!!! And to think this is the second GMC dealer as the first one was terrible.

So earlier this week I get a call from the service department saying parts for the recall are now available. Since I too have to wait while it's being serviced I asked how long and she says 2-3 hours. Guess they plan on letting mine cool off as well. Let's hope they don't feel compelled to grease my seats too.

It's no different than changing hot oil, they don't wait for it to cool off. Rediculious on the time it take to drain unscrew the heater put the new heater in and refill the coolant.

Actually, dropping hot coolant low enough to do the job is a lot different than dropping hot engine oil for a change.
