dealer not interested in your problem
low vacuum at idle ( normally 15 inches of mg) indicates problem intake valves
check the valve clearance ( .010"intake hot .012" exhaust hot)
you can set it the same cold as the settings will change but still be within specs for the hydraulic followers to compensate
the firing order could have 2 ht leads crossed and that will also cause low vacuum

Usually a wiring problem - the wiring on your truck connector may not match the pinout on the trailer plug.

I'd suspect that the gauge is just tired. Check the voltage at the battery with a multi meter while the engine is running. At idle, if you are anywhere near 14V (13.8-14.5) you are fine.

100 PSI is way to low, I think you have a burnt valve. Check the cylinder compression on all cylinders, no cylinder should be 5% lower than the highest cylinder pressure measured or the engine will run rough or misfire.

cluster or bus wires going down, test bus voltage to cluster,if reference voltage ok to cluster then internally a cluster issue,best place to start diagnosis.

Is it auto or manual?? If it's manual I would say your clutch has thrown in the towel, if it's auto if could be transmission oil dirty and will need replacing, hope this helps
