I see absolutely no benefit integration In Command into GM tow vehicles. The vehicles are already loaded with tons of electronics. Much of this has reduce the backyard mechanics ability to repair issues himself. Most RV dealerships can’t even work on basic In Command system let alone new Global Connect.

The more crap piled into the tow vehicle means more dealership only repair if part replacement is needed. Without access to hi cost scan gun with ability to reprogram you can’t Replace many parts yourself because they require programming to be recognized by the vehicle.

Not my cup of tea

There is a story about a guy and his daughter's first house. He went to visit her the first time in the new house and started walking around it turning on all the lights and leaving them on. She said, dad what are you doing? He said I have been waiting years to do this!!!!!

I have been wrenching on autos "on the side" for over 45 years now and I actually welcomed some technology. For example OBD helped cut down diagnostic times and mis diagnosed issues. Now that its C.A.N. It takes more and more sophisticated equipment to "talk" to the patient. RVs are getting the same way, I don't do much diagnosis on the new electronic systems other than maybe a flow chart to fill out for the manufacturer, we are mainly parts changers in that respect.

In Command

I like the Idea of the TPMS , I have looked at aftermarket systems and not pulled the trigger.

Our world is changing so fast, I used to keep up, donít really care now.

I don't recall ANY other issue discussed in this forum where there was such universal agreement (ha-ha)...put me down for won't work (travel lock) and isn't needed (check your black tank level from the truck? Really?). Just because we CAN do something doesn't mean we SHOULD do something.
