Still need to try with another trailer. I still think it is with the trailer, not the truck.

I'm not going to get snarky as you are entitled to your opinion, but if you review the thread, or try a google search, you'll see that more than a few Chevy owners are having the same issue with a variety of trailers. In a sense I agree that it's the trailer, in that pulling it exposes the truck malfunction.

Did you ever try pulling the trailer (safely) without the electrical connected?

If you don't try another trailer you will never convince your dealer, it is not your truck. But you don't have to listen to anyone. Especially me.

Had similar problem with my 2015. Found that an after market plug mounted on sidewall of truck was causing the problem. Removed it and used the plug in the bumper which was original equipment. Everything now works. Purchased a new high quality plug for sidewall mount and it works as well. Might give that a try. Won't cost you anything but a few minutes of your time to test.
Good luck.

It is definitely due to something made in China!

I am on a trip right now with my 2016 2500. I have now twice gotten the trailer brake warning and service stabilitrac. The dealer has replaced the truck trailer plug due to water in it. I have temporary "solved" the issue by disconnecting the trailer plug and pulling the emergency brake on the trailer a couple of times. Reconnect and drive 20 yards, and everything returns to normal.

When I get home, the trailer goes to the dealer.

2016 stealth 2515.

I am having the dealer pull the codes off the truck today. The codes that only the dealer can get. Just to make sure.

Problem with these new trucks is any minor electric glitch and they freak out, and shut down.

Thing is I am in Wisconsin, on my way home to California. So this will keep me awake at least. Can't have a dull vacation.
Mark
