RE: Resetting 2013 Silverado TPMS after rotating tires

In these pdf's, read the paragraph after "See your dealer for service or to purchase a relearn tool" sentence. It talks first about the timing of the learning process then proceeds to list what you need to do to relearn the tire positions. It's there... just read a little bit more. 2010 Silverado Owners Manual see pg 6-78, 6-79 2011 Silverado Owners Manual see pg 10-68, 10-69 2012 Silverado Owners Manual see pg 10-67, 10-68 2013 Silverado Owners Manual see pg 10-61, 10-62 2014 Silverado Owners Manual see pg 10-61, 10-62 2015 Silverado Owners Manual see pg 10-67, 10-68Oh, I did read a little more, and I understand about the official "relearn tool". I am trying to find out if the previous "air pressure release" method, which did not require a special tool, will still work . . . . or not. I normally rotate my own tires. I do not want to purchase a special tool to "relearn" the sensors. I also do not want the hassle of going back to the dealer so they can "relearn" the sensors.:R

RE: Resetting 2013 Silverado TPMS after rotating tires

The air pressure method is not in the 2013 or the 2012 manuals that I downloaded from Chevy as PDF files. Neither is it in the paper manual that came with my 2013. I finally found reference to it in the downloaded 2010 manual. I don't know why they stopped referring to it, but I guess I am going to give it a shot as soon as the weather cools off a bit. I'm not big on performing maintenance when it's over 95* outside!:p

Resetting 2013 Silverado TPMS after rotating tires

So, being very ambitious the other day, I rotated the tires on my 2013 Silverado 2500HD. Now, of course, the TPMS sensors have to be reset to accurately indicate which tire has what pressure. In the manual, it says you have to use a "TPMS relearn tool" to do this. There is no way in heck I am going spend any money on something like that. :M I have heard that with previous years, you could "relearn" the sensors via the method of dropping air pressure in each tire in a certain sequence until the sensor "learned" which tire is at which position on the vehicle. Long story short, can anyone tell me if I can still use this air pressure method on my 2013, instead of the "relearn tool" that Chevy wants me to buy?:h

RE: Those of you with Tailgaters

... but I believe my 211k advises to only use an external HD as a DVR which has an external power connection. No passing the power via USB....If that is what they recommend, then there are exceptions to the rule. The USB powered Buffalo Mini-station I have been using for two years would be one of those. I hate using devices that require those danged power cubes.:M

RE: Those of you with Tailgaters

I have been using this thing for a couple of years now: Buffalo Ministation Mine is the 500gb version, and I have never even come close to filling it up. Of course, I also don't just keep recording stuff and never deleting it either. If you are one of those kind of people, it comes in a 1tb version as well. I like it because: It is smallIt is USB powered, hence no power cube to plug inIt has never failed meLast but not least, it was inexpensive Will this work using an iPhone or iPad charging cube with the USB connection? I am not sure what your are asking here . . . Will it work on the home satellite/receiver to record programs/movies then taken to the RV for playback? Like the previous poster mentioned, whatever hard drive you use will be formatted for use only with the 211 receiver. I am 99% sure it cannot then be plugged into any other device for playback purposes.

RE: streets and trips 2013 orientation

Microsoft has announced that the S&T is going away - by the time you get this it will be obsoleteThis is terrible news!:S Official announcement - S&T discontinued I may be in the minority, but I love my S&T! There have been many times when I need or want to plan a trip while having NO INTERNET CONNECTION.:C The more I think about it, the more upset I get about the impending loss of new, updated versions of S&T coming out every two or three years.:(

Richard, I won't be coming to the Rally. ...Sorry to hear that, Gary. I know it's frustrating having things not under your control determine your plans.:R

... I really hope some of the western folks will come. (Walter I know you and Garland are coming so you are exempt from my whining). :B:B ....Never really thought of myself as "western folk", but I guess it's all relative to where you live compared to somebody else.:@

RE: People never cease to surprise me

Jeez Louise! Doug, I am very curious as to what campground that was. Could you PM me the name of it? As a Missouri camper, I need to know these thing!:W

RE: Dog? Poop - or NOT

Ya know, we haven't had a good "dog poop" topic in quite a while! I hope this one remains as entertaining as most of the rest. :C FWIW, we use plastic grocery sacks. In order to conserve, I often "double dip", as we have two poopers. I have become quite proficient at the "inside out / outside in" maneuver.:C

RE: Alberta Adventure - A Dog's Journal

Cute! :) I have thought about writing about our crew's adventures on the road as well. We are on the last leg of our month long "Western trip" to Glacier Nat Park. We didn't make it into Alberta, but we were very close, in a town named Eureka, in Montana. Today we will be spending most of our time traveling through Kansas, on the way back to home in St. Louis. :R I am sure Gretchen and Inga have a lot to say about this trip. :W

... I'd avoid Jellystone in PortageYes, the reviews on rvparkreviews.com tell the story pretty well. And besides that, their website has a very annoying yogi bear that follows your cursor around!:M:B

Anybody have pet goats???

I bet they don't look like these!!:B http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y23/walterc2/Mountaingoats_zps19e50d78.jpg I was going up a trail in Glacier National Park earlier today, and these guys just came strolling by, on the way down as I was going up.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

.... there is only about two inches that stick out beyond the garage door, just enough that I cannot close the door. ...Maybe if you enter into a demolition derby race, you could shorten the ol Lincoln up enough to fit.:@

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

...This has been particularly hard for us, due to her amazing will to survive and walk. She is now at rest and we have a huge hole in our hearts.Their stoic determination to get about and live their life, no matter what, should be an inspiration to us all. So sorry to hear your news.:(
