That's good news Grumpy, my newest Chevy is a 2010 and it wasn't prepped. My 09, 07, 05, 03 were not either. Maybe GM finally figured it was the right thing to do, my dealer always did it for free, but I am sure GM had to pay them.

I have an 07 and knew nothing of this! Our 377 with residential fridge will be here in 6 weeks. Where does this fuse need to go? I am not too mechanically inclined.

Here is a good explanation: "If you do not have power at the 7-way on your vehicle you will want to check a couple of connections under the hood to complete the trailer wiring package on your vehicle. The ring terminal for the 12-volt power lead for the 7-way trailer connector is located to the left of the power distribution box, and is taped to a wire harness under the power brake booster. You are looking for a red wire with a ring terminal on the end. This wire needs to be connected to the right side stud at the front of the power distribution box. You will also want to make sure there is a 40 amp fuse installed adjacent to the stud."

I'm aware of the TV charging the batteries, my point was the inverter worked as it should.

We got to use it last weekend in our maiden voyage. I think as long as the fridge is already cooled and the doors remain closed, a single automotive type battery will work. My inverter displays the voltage while on and after about a 2.5 hour long trip, the voltage had only dropped .02

I'd say that's pretty good!
