Instead of a tow haul button I wish Chevy had a 2nd gear
lock out button.
Really. If I'm driving with the gearshift selector in 3rd
I wish it would NOT be allowed to shift down to 2nd
unless I'm going way slow.

I think now if I put it in 2nd it will start in 2nd.
Some sort of "less likely to spin" in snow or ice thing.
I wish driving in 3 was the same way so it wouldn't
suddenly unexpectedly downshift. Like others have said
it's mostly when I'm driving with cruise control on but hey
I WANT to use cruise control if we're on a long haul.

I actually went as far as talking to a man about re-programing
the engine computer to stop this
but it was going to cost too much.

Not just Chevy. I wish my Ford had that also. I don't even have the tow/haul button, just OD lockout.

Yeah, we call that "driving in 3rd."

KyDan I to like driving with cruise control on. I have nerve damage in my right leg and hip, thanks to a government paid vacation to the garden spot of asia called Viet Nam. I need to kinda sit with my weight on my left side to relieive the pain.

The wife and I both like the floorplan of this model. (rockwood Ultra Lite 2604). We both thought that by March the weather mybe better. It would also make a early trip just drive our truck out to Ohio and pulling the TT back home. I guess that is why I bought this TT far from home.
It's The Adventure!!!!

I HIGHLY encourage you both to spend a night or 2 in your
new trailers CLOSE to the dealer. You could maybe even
spend the night on their lot. OR pick a park in the vicinity.

You will find things that need fixing. Hopefully they are
minor. You will have questions. If this is your 3rd trailer
you already know how to operate most of the appliances.
If this is your 1st trailer please consider staying close to
the dealer for a night or 2 before you tow it a long way
home!! There will almost ALWAYS be something that
needs to be fixed on a new trailer.

Hi KyDan, The dealer I'm picking the TT up from has alot of campgrounds near by. He also suggested we stay at one for a night or two to find all the hopefully minor problems. But I also want to test drive the TT to see if there are any handling problems on the road and interstate.

I hav a 2007 2604 S and pull it with my 5.3 2007 Silverado with towing pkg. No problems, Have pulled for over 8000 miles and average 10 MPG. Probably a little underpowered if going through the Rockies but otherwise, NO PROB...

Enjoy.

Thanks for the reply jdeeter. I think I will be ok to tow the 2604 home with my 2007 Silverado. The only part that bothers me is the transmission temp. I think if I stay under 210 degrees I think I will be ok. Anybody think that is to hot or OK?
