It's been 2 multiple dealers the "fixes" lasted long enough 2 think the problem was solved until it started again . Then back 2 the dealer it went . Every dealer had a different excuse of y it wouldn't start so not so simple 2 just say it was a battery they would say battery was bad cuz of ....blah blah blah was wrong ... next excuse . I even called GM itself 2 talk 2 a service rep who trouble shoots issues they had no clue what was wrong while I was on the phone he connected me 2 another dealer n explained the problem they told him they couldn't help me as they had no idea what would cause that . Up until now the dealers replaced the parts free of charge now it's on my dime n I'm not willing 2 send it 2 the dealer or anyone else n pay endless hrs of diagnostic time @ $150. Hr
I know it's a parasitic battery drain after searching the Internet. I've tried all the fuses none show power after the truck is off a couple hrs. So I'm still searching 4 a cause .

What do you mean by "none show power"? Have you checked current draw after a few min sitting?

It could be several things even the alt. Maybe a short, bad components in a control module, even a relay stuck. You will need to trace where the current is flowing to find the problem. If you or if you find a shop that knows how to do this they should be able to find the problem. You probably will need to speak to the service guys at the shop you use to see if they are familiar with this type of issue. The person on the phone from GM is probably someone that does just that talk on the phone, and has no idea what to tell you about the issue.

Hi opc6666,You might have to take it to electrical technician ,but did they check the alternator before replacing all those batteries and ground wires? Or even the main wiring harness? You should have posted this in the electrical section of the site for more in depth problem solving.Good luck.

Power has to be flowing somewhere. Cant be going nowhere. I've seen this when people hacked in an aftermarket radio.
There is always enough time to do it over again, but never enough time to do it right the first time.

I too am rather unhappy with my 2011 Silverado. I have owned it for 8 months. I bought it from a local D***e dealer here in town.

3 of the months it spent going back and forth to a dealer here in town trying to get the ABS activation taken care of. They continued to send the truck to NYE GM here, which is known to be a horrible dealer. I BEGGED the D***e dealer to stop sending it there and send it to THEIR OWN chevy dealer. They refused. I called Chevy via Onstar, very upset one day, after being told by NYE , that "We'd have tear every wire out of your truck to find the issue, and to be honest, its not worth our time." I actually was able to talk to an AMERICAN, I described the problem to her. They agreed to cover the diag fee. I took it to another dealership, who found the ABS module connector broken, when they informed GM of the issue, they weren't going to help me because the damage was caused (probably the other dealership.) - So finally, I called the NYS DMV and told him the issues I had with my BRAKES and that it had been an ongoing issue since the day I took possession of the truck. He said to start the paper work to lemon it. I told the D***e dealer I was going to sue AND start the lemon law process if they did not get the truck fixed and that they had ONE MORE chance to get it fixed. I drove it to their GM dealership an hr away, was given a loaner, 2 weeks later they called and said after putting a new ABS module on it, the truck was actually WORSE and that they had to tear into the rear end to replace the tone rings. This fixed the issue. Point is, even tho my truck was a year/30,000 miles out of the warranty, I think GM would've worked with me on getting it repaired had it been diagnosed correctly. That impressed me, the truck does not however.

I realize however that it is a lemon, because my Dad has the same truck; same miles and has not had to put one penny in it.

^^^ Another example of issues boiling down to the individual dealers and their attitudes, NOT necessarily GM themselves.
