Trailer connector useful quirk

Trailer connector useful quirk

Postby augiemattheiss [OP] » Dec 13 2020, 3:18am

Hooking up one of the lighted trailer receiver covers is enough of a current draw to make my 2020 2500's circuitry think that a trailer is connected. This means you get the dash message about a trailer and the cameras work when changing lanes, ... perhaps there are other subtleties ?

Well I would say that's a plus instead of a minus?
Or is it too distracting?

I've only had this change for a couple of days, so far I like it. I'll report if I find significant downsides, I guess it'll screw up any stats collected by software for trailer miles relative to maintenance , or whatever else .... Software person starts a new day by adding a few more features they thought of last night after leaving work.....no one really asked for them but they thought would be neat to have.....
