Towing a 30 foot travel trailer

Re: Towing a 30 foot travel trailer

I just took the VIN to my local dealer, came back with all the RPO Codes,

Z82 H.D. Trailering Equipment (so it is a factory hitch)
GT4 3.73 Rear Axle Ratio
KC4 Engine Oil Cooler
G80 Axle - Locking Differential

Now I'm curious is the Z82 package includes a plug under the dash like the 2500 HD does for the brake controller. I'll have to wait until I pick-up the truck to check.

It should be pre-wired for the brake controller under the dash, since it has the factory towing package. At least the newer ones with the 7 pin connector are from what I have seen.

The glove box is inside the truck and the sticker is partially destroyed.

The truck is 1-1/2 Hours away.

The dealer told me it was an aftermarket hitch, but it appeared factory (had the identical rating plate on the hitch to other GM trucks) We checked for the V92 Trailer Towing provisions, not the Z82 HD Trailering equipment
