Sorry for the hijack!!

I emailed my dealer some pics of some cracks in one of our slide outs, side wall.
I dropped the camper off about 3 weeks ago to get warranty stuff fixed. So i guess im not gonna be doing anything to it for a few months!

I don't HAVE a dealers maintenance set. The quote I gave you (Post #2446) is from my 2011 Traverse Owners Manual. So if it's part of dealer prep, why do they have to talk about it in the Owners Manual? If you go on the Traverse forum, you'll find lots of folks with the tow package who had to put in the fuse (it didn't need wiring up, contrary to the owners manual blurb, it just needed a fuse). And my Silverado did not come hooked up, it needed wiring AND a fuse.

Not true on Traverses. Before early 2012, the tow package versions (V92 package) had a different fuse block than the non-V92 versions. I know because I had to buy the new fuse block. They looked the same, until you looked into the slots where the fuses and relays plugged in. The non-V92 fuse blocks only had one set of metal connections for the trailer fuses and 2 for the trailer relays. The V92 fuse blocks had both fuse connections and 4 relay connections. So internally, there were connections missing. And once I installed the new fuse block, there was no wiring to hook up, contrary to the owners manual blurb. So all the dealer had to do for V92 packages was install the fuse. After early 2012, they all come with the V92 fuse block, but no relays or fuses.

Just checked my 2013 F250 for a fuse in the power distribution box. And sure enough, there was a fuse installed in the location titled "trailer tow battery charge". Tomorrow I'll check to make sure there is power at the cable connector. This is a good topic especially if a forum member is not connected properly.

I was talking trucks, didnt realize that a traverse really had any kind of tow package, never seen or noticed any provisions for trailer wiring on one, maybe its a special order.
If you worked at a dealer, you'd soon realize you cant keep up with every little detail about every model, every year, for one make. Throw several brands in and your head will swim on a constant basis.

And after building several acadia/traverse/enclaves cant really say i would want to pull anything much with one, myself.

Yeah, I quickly learned that; hence the Silverado!

Although there's a guy on the Traverse forum who pulled an 8,000 lb Airstream to Alaska, he claims.

And many people call their Lambdas "trucks." Don't know why.
