2010 Chevrolet Questions and Answers


  • Towing Capacity of 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Recommended Weight Distribution System
  • According to the online owner's manual for the 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, there were three different V8 engines offered, 4.8L, 5.3L and 6.2L. These different powertrains, truck bed lengths, the presence of the heavy-duty cooling package and rear axle gear ratio all affect towing capacity. Maximum trailer weight ranges from 4700-lbs for the 4.8L with 3.23 axle up to 10,600-lbs for the 6.2L V8 NHT with trailering package and 3.73 axle. You will want to confirm in your owner's manual...

  • Using a Weight Distribution System on a Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes
  • I contacted Venture Trailers Inc. and found that the reason they do not recommend the use of a weight distribution system is because most weight distribution systems are not recommended for trailers with surge brakes because they do not allow the coupler to push into the coupler housing and engaging the brakes. Also due to the fact that they do apply additional stress on the tongue of the trailer like you said and this can be particularly harmful to aluminum frame trailers. There are...

  • Can Electric, Heated, Turn Signal Towing Mirrors be Added to Trucks that Do Not have those Features
  • You can replace factory mirrors with mirrors that have heat and electric operation including turn signals but those features will only work on the new mirrors if the original mirrors had those functions to start with. If your factory mirrors do not have these features then those features will still not work on the new mirrors. We have several custom fit towing mirror options that will fit your 2010 Chevy Silverado. I have included a link to them for you.

  • How to Wire a Camper Shell Third Brake Light and Interior Lights on a 2011 Chevy Silverado
  • You are going to want to find the Center High Mount Stop Light wire for the brake light on the truck cap on your 2011 Chevy Silverado. This wire is bundled with the brake controller wiring located under the dash, and held together with tape and a tag that lists the wiring functions. The wire you are looking for is orange and will have a tag on it labeled CHMSL. For the interior lights, if they are on a switch, you can run a wire from 12 volt hot lead behind the factory 7-Way to the switch...

  • Trailer Dome Lights Do Not Work on a Haulmark Trailer Towed By a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado
  • The first step to troubleshooting your trailer dome lights is to determine how the lights are wired. If your trailer has a 4-way connector, then they will be connected to the running light circuit. If your trailer has a 7-way connector, then the dome lights will be connected to a 12 volt auxiliary power circuit coming from the trailer connector. If your trailer has a 4-way connector and the running lights on the trailer work, then there is an issue with the connection between the dome...

  • How Much Crossbar Spread Is Needed For Kayak Carrier And Bike Carriers On Camper Shell Roof Rack
  • The crossbar spread will vary depending on the accessory you want to put on the roof rack. The Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Carrier, part # Y02103 will work with a crossbar spread between 16 and 48 inches, so you can see it will work with most roof racks. Most kayak carriers, like part # TH834 require at least 24 inches crossbar spread. I recommend making sure you have at least the 24 inches for a spread but I would probably place them about 28 inches apart. Again, I recommend...

  • Installing Used Kelsey Energize Brake Controller in 2010 Chevrolet Silverado with Factory Harness
  • Please take a look at the linked article, which specifically addresses the process of installing an aftermarket electric brake controller in a Chevrolet Silverado that is equipped with a pre-wired harness. The wires from the GM harness connect to the brake controller wires as follows: Red/Black wire connects to Black wire (battery power) White wire connects to White wire (ground) LightBlue/White wire connects to Red wire (brake light signal) Dark Blue wire connects to Blue wire (brake...

  • What Trailer Connector Is Needed For A 2010 Chevrolet Silverado With Factory Trailer Wiring Harness
  • On your 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 you will only need one of the trailer connectors. The Pollak Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Connector, # PK11916, is a twist-in design that is designed to fit into the pre-existing cutout on your truck. I am sending a video link that will show this part being installed on a 2009 Chevy Silverado. The Hopkins 7 and 4-pole Trailer Connector, # HM40975, will also work on your vehicle, but the socket will not be able to be installed in the pre-existing cutout...

  • Best Trailer Tire Option for Size ST175/80R13
  • 6 years is the accepted age that a trailer tire should be replaced at. Going to a radial 175/80R13 would be a great choice too as they ride better and can handle higher speeds. Best option is the part # LHWL101. It has a 75 mph speed rating and a 2 year roadside assistance program. If your RV or trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change the flat for you. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year from anywhere in the United...

  • Brake Controller Installation on a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
  • More often than not, the connections under the hood of your 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will need to be made to complete the installation for a brake controller. I have heard of some occasions where these connections were made at the factory, but it would be wise to double check. Once you have the brake controller wired to the brake control harness in your cab, check for the brake control wire and the battery charge wire under the hood. The brake control wire will be located to the...

  • Is Air Suspension System Needed When Towing Trailer With 2010 Silverado Z71 4x4
  • When you tow with your 2010 Chevrolet Silverado, there are a few things to consider. If a trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the towing vehicle's weight then weight distribution is recommended. If you are experiencing sag on your truck due to the trailer tongue weight then weight distribution would help with that as well. I have attached a helpful article that explains weight distribution you can check out. Air bags are not designed to eliminate the sag due to a heavy trailer tongue...

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Stabilizer for Use in 2-1/2-Inch Hitch with Reducer Sleeve
  • The Brophy Stabilizer Bracket # RHSB will not work with a 2-1/2-inch hitch that is used with a reducer sleeve like # 58102 but we do have options that will. All anti-rattle devices for use with a 2-1/2-inch hitch like the one on your 2010 Silverado are displayed on the page I linked for you. The one I recommend is the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-062. This item is rated for both accessory use with things like bike racks and also for towing applications. You can use this so long as your...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Husky Centerline TS Weight Distribution System
  • Don't worry, I can help explain how to find the right weight distribution system for you. First thing to know is to choose the right weight distribution it will be based on loaded tongue weight, which is typically between 10-15 percent of the trailer and anything in addition to that loaded behind the rear axle. It's important that you fall within the middle of the loaded tongue weight capacity for best support. Based on your GVW that puts you at anywhere from 387-708lbs. The Husky...

  • Compatibility of an RBW 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Reese RP50064-58 Base Rail Kit
  • According to my contacts at Reese, the RBW Fifth Wheel Hitches are compatible with the Reese fifth wheel rails, including the Custom Installation Kit, part # RP50064-58. However, Reese hitches will not necessarily fit in the RBW rails. I am including some links to additional information on towing with a fifth-wheel hitch and to the installation instructions and video for the # RP50064-58 base rail kit, if needed. If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in your...

  • Recommendation For Transmission Cooler On a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Towing a 7,000 Lb Trailer
  • Ideally you want to keep the temperature of the transmission fluid in the 160 to 200 degree range. You cannot cool transmission fluid too much. Transmission coolers are universal fit items so you will want to measure the space you have in front of your air conditioning condenser or your radiator to see what size cooler will fit your 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Since you will be towing a 7,000-lb trailer through the mountains with your Silverado I would recommend to use the Derale...

  • Why is Curt Hitch Ball # 40038 w/ 12,000 LB GTW Shank Diameter Smaller Than Husky Ball w/ 8,000 LB
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and numerous factors go into the capacity of a hitch ball, including the way the shank is threaded as well as the way the metal was finished. The Curt Hitch Ball, # 40038, has been tested and has a 12,000 lb towing capacity. You definitely want to use a hitch ball that is rated high enough for the weight of your horse trailer and part # 40038 would cover this. Although the Husky ball looks to be sturdier, you mention that it only has an 8,000 lb capacity...

  • Changing a Trailer Ramp Door To Barn Doors On A 6x14 V-Nose Enclosed Trailer
  • To create barn doors out of your ramp door, you will need hinges and a latch. I suggest a latch/lock system like the Universal Cam-Door Lock for Enclosed Trailers - 1" Keeper, # 383200. This will use a 3/4 inch diameter pipe that you'll have to get at a local hardware store, but the bridge-type keeper prevents accidental opening and ensures safe locking action. It will also allow you to use a separate lock like # 37DAT to secure your cargo. We will also need hinges similar to Strap...

  • No Power to the Brake Controller Wires Under the Dash on 2010 Chevrolet Silverado
  • General Motors quit offering the plug-in type connectors on 2007 and newer full size trucks and SUVs with a factory tow package. These models have four (possibly five) blunt cut wires under the left side of the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. The wires can be identified by a white label and the color of the wires. The wire colors are (1) Red/Black wire, (1) White wire, (1) Light Blue/White wire and (1) Dark Blue wire and possibly (1) Orange wire. There are two wires...

  • Mounting Hardware Needed to Attach a Thule Cargo Box to Factory Rack on a 2010 Chevy Tahoe
  • Hi there! I would be glad to help, but without any information on your cargo box it makes it difficult at best. Since there is no information on the box, if you will send me a photo of the box, from a couple of angles, and any dimensions, like hole spacing and width of the spacing between the front and rear set of holes on the box, I would be glad to make a recommendation or forward the information to my technical contact at Thule and get some help finding the correct parts. I look forward...

  • Installing a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2010 Chevy Silverado with Factory Tow Package
  • On a 2010 Chevy Silverado with a factory tow package, you will find the wiring from the brake controller under the dash, driver side, held together with white tape or a tag that explains the functions of the wires. There may be 4 or 5 wires but you only need 4 of them. If your brake controller has blunt cut wires coming out, you will need to connect them to the truck wiring using butt connectors. We offer a Wiring Installation kit that comes with several different connectors, electrical...

  • How to Wire a CHMSL on a Cap/Camper Shell on a 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • Yes, the orange wire that you found in the bundle of wires near the brake pedal is the correct wire to use as the power wire for the light on your canopy. You are also correct about the white wire being the ground wire. You will also have to connect the two wires under your hood so your tow package will be functional before the center high mount stop light will function on your 2010 Chevy 1500. I attached an FAQ article on how this is done for you to check out.

  • Curt Discovery Brake Controller Shows OL Error When Trailer is Connected
  • It is possible that it is a simple wiring issue that is causing the errors on your Curt Discovery brake controller # C51120. On your 2010 Chevy Silverado, there is a tow package wire bundle under the dash to wire in a brake controller. The tow package red goes to brake controller black. White goes to white, blue to blue, and the light blue or orange wire on the truck goes to the brake controller red wire. The OL indicates an overload and if all of the connections at the brake controller...

  • Hopkins Impulse Brake Controller Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • You can use the Hopkins Plug-in Simple Brake Wiring Adapter, # HM47795, but you will need to clip off the vehicle side connector (larger brown square plug) and hardwire the wires to your 2010 Chevy Silverado. The 2010 Silverado does not have a port to plug the brake controller adapter into, but it does have a bundle of brake controller wires under the dash. The bundle will be below the steering column, to the left of the brake pedal, tied together with tape. The tape may have the tow...

  • Recommended Submersible Trailer Light For Karavan Boat Trailer
  • We don't have a light that is 6 x 2-1/4 x 3-1/2 inches, but we do have lights that are 6 1/16 wide x 3-5/8 tall x 2-1/4 deep if the measurements were just given in a different order. Unfortunately trailer lighting companies change their lights from time to time and the dimensions often change with a newer design. I recommend you take this opportunity to upgrade your lights on your karavan boat trailer. I recommend you use the LED Trailer Tail Light - 7 Function - Submersible - 23...

  • Wiring A Brake Controller On 2010 Chevrolet Suburban
  • Chevrolet had a plug in port for a brake controller harness for trucks and full size SUVs but they stopped doing that after 2006. There should be a bundle of wires tucked up underneath the dash held together with a tag. The tag lists the functions of the wires on it. You will need to splice the brake controller wires to the tow package wires by functions. On the controller, red is input from the brake switch, the white wire is ground, black is 12 volt power, and blue is output to the...

  • Sensitivity Range of the MS-913 Back Up Sensor when installed on a Chrysler Town and Country Minivan
  • The Hopkins Backup Sensor System, item # HM60100VA, is designed to detect items directly behind the vehicle and straight out. I spoke with my contact at Hopkins and he explained that the backup sensor would detect items at the ground for a distance of 5-1/2 feet, or so. Also the unit will not pickup items very near to the vehicle once the item is past where the sensor can detect the item. Say a box is laying on the ground 15 feet behind your vehicle. At a point where you get within...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2010 Chevy Equinox Behind an RV
  • Base plates # 523163-1 do not fit the 2010 Chevy Equinox. For your Equinox I recommend Blue Ox base plates # BX1689 because it fits models with or without adaptive cruise control and/or active air shutters. Our installers also find the Blue Ox base plates a little easier to install. As far as if you can install them yourself, it is possible but Blue Ox does recommend a professional installation. Instructions are included and I have also linked them for you here. I have also included...

  • Wiring a Trailer Brake Controller in a 2010 Chevy Express Van
  • If your 2010 Chevy Express has tow package wiring already run under the dash, the wires should be labeled with a white tag that holds them together that tells you what each wire does. If, not, you will need to use a circuit tester, # 3808, to test the wires for function. From what we have found on GM vehicles in the past, 2008 and up, the tow package red wire connects to the brake controller black wire for 12 volt power. The dark blue tow package wire connects to the controller blue...
