    Damn that was fast and surprising as Lunar Rock is a very popular color. Wow, I also wanted my 2022 in that color but never came in. Guess Solar Octane will be bumped to my fav color now….

    Just wondered if anyone out there has seen the grill shutters work. I can’t find anything in the owners manual about them. For example, what temperature is needed before they close?

    Ok I searched but couldn't find a thread on it, I know I've seen it posted. When backing up a trailer, how do I get the brakes from locking up? Frustrating when the dash lights up "BRAKE" and everything comes comes to a screeching halt. Thanks in advance

    Okay, I'm assuming this is a boat trailer (or a trailer with SURGE brakes) and it's the trailer's brakes locking when in reverse we're talking about? This is common and it's the trailer's fault. Those brakes are activated when that sliding piece behind where the hitch attaches to the truck compresses (or gets closer to the tow vehicle). I bet you were either backing too aggressively and/or backing up a slight incline? Either way, the solution is to temporarily lock that slide in the forward position. Some trailers have a little rotary dial you turn, some have a little metal "key" you pop in for backing but with many of them you just find a way to lock it. The safety pin sometimes goes into a second hole that you would see when it's in the normal, non-braking position. Any way you can jury rig it will work but make sure you undo it before you start towing on the road or else you'll have NO trailer brakes.

    It's the button with the cone on it left of the steering wheel. You have to actuate it every time. It resets when you turn the truck off. Same thing happened to me.

    Yeah its surge hydraulic brakes, and I understand them for the most part as I have replaced them a few times, not my first decade of towing boats. What I am saying is the the truck would lock up its brakes not allowing me to reverse, uphill or level or down hill. Very annoying to be moving back and then tires lock up on the truck. I think @TWade answered it in the post above, thank you

    There is a button on the left of the steering wheel, on dash down low - in that group - on the far right top row, I believe is the ignore trailer and don't lock up button.

    Yup thank you much! Luckily there wasn't a line at the ramp, oh could you imagine the embarrassment with a crowd looking on as the truck locks up. Oh the humanity

    Question about a/c Compressor. The owners manual states turning the system off will give ambient or warm air. When you do that, there is no fan. When turning the fan on only, it appears the a/c Compressor will run (no a/c light) because the air is cold out the vents. It was 74 degrees and the air coming out of the vents was not ambient by any stretch. Does the a/c come on with the fan? I just want to blow outside air.

    What setting did you have it on? If you had it on defrost/floor it’s gonna turn the AC on and so does the AC but the rest shouldn’t…

    Has anyone experienced a hard shift after a cold start? It seems to have only started happening. It only happens on the initial acceleration after the truck has been started.

    Thank you for your response. I turn the system off and it only shows the mode of air to upper vents (face). At this point I only turn the fan on to blow the air. That’s it, but the air sure dells colder than ambient. Nothing else shows on the system. Just the fan speed and vent (face) mode.

    Just for info. I just finished a 180 mi trip doing about 2/3 at 75 mph, some at 55, and some really slow (stop and go) heavy traffic. Also made a stop about 75 mi in for food. The truck showed mileage at 20.4 mpg. I now have 900 mi on the truck. I think that’s pretty good for an engine with less than a 1,000 mi on it. Just wondering how others are doing.

    Saw only my 4th Tundra in person today. I've been a limited DC, two CM SR5s, and today I saw a Capstone. Holy crap. Who the heck can afford a Capstone in mid MI! After I picked my jaw up off the floor while staring, I started telling my buddy about the truck. He doesn't know anything about Tundras, but I assured him it was awesome. Lol
