I have the same issue with my 2015 Silverado 1500. Dealer knew nothing about the problem. Thanks for posting this! I am headed back to the dealer!

Had a similar problem on an earlier Chevy 1500, the drain from the air conditioning evaporator was not sealed and allowed the condensate to soak the carpeting big time. A small section of heater hose cured this.

Waiting on my 3500 to come in next week, hope the factory read the memo on the problem.

So, an update... The truck has been in the shop all last week and still in a bay today. I stopped by today to check on it and the passenger side front end was off, the dash apart... Everything was sitting in the bed of the truck. They still have not found the leak but say they are getting closer. They are hoping to have some better news soon.

Well a final update and hopeful resolving of the issue.... After two weeks they found the leak.

A wire bundle in the passenger A-pillar was leaking where it passed from the engine compartment into the passenger compartment. We have had no rain so I am not able to confimr the issue is fixed so we shall see, but my guess is I am good now.

Recalls

Be thankful you are not part of the Dodge Ram mandatory buy-back for several hundred thousand Dodge trucks that "can't be fixed'. I don't remember the exact number, but it's big. NHTSB list the affected models and years. Big steering problem among other things. Not sure if water intrusion is one of the problems.

Tie rod ends I believe. The issue is they have a million some odd trucks with an issue and cannot get the parts to make the repairs. All they are doing is paying market value (trade in value) so it may or may not be a good thing depending on your location in your auto loan status. I do not know the yeard either so that may not be important.

No the carpet was not replaced. It was dried out and laying on the bed of my truck for the two weeks. I will keep and eye on it and make sure I do not get any odors... It is bone dry now but we are getting heavy rains right now so I will be checking in the AM for dampness.
