Mine tows great as well going about the max at 10,000 lbs but mileage is absurdly terrible while towing.

In addition to other things, the trailering bundle pre-wires the truck for a 7-stick trailer association, the kind that backings electric trailer brakes and trailer battery charging by means of the alternator when moving. It's altogether incorporated with the wire tackle and combined in the under-hood intertwine box.

The main thing missing is an electronic trailer brake controller. The present age Silverado choices list offers an inherent one, yet that choice isn't accessible on the Colorado.

This isn't irregular. Worked in trailer brake controllers in full-measure trucks are a moderately new advancement. So we essentially did what truck proprietors dependably upped until a couple of years prior: We introduced our own.

In the current past, pre-wired tow-bundle trucks would accompany a little sub-bridle that was full in a sack in the glove compartment or covered up under a seat. It'd have a connector toward one side and uncovered wires on the other. The thought was you'd join you're trailer brake controller to the exposed wires and connect the connector to a holding up repository under the dash.
