RE: Hitching Up to 5th Wheel

Before driving off, put it in any position you like but check TV antenna is down.

RE: Fuel mileage?

I agree, 10 mpg is bad but I think it's because it's been on the car lot and only had test drives and idled a lot which will lower mileage but not sure how long it takes to calculate again

Fuel mileage?

just purchased a new to me Chevrolet Duramax 6.6 with the Allison automatic, just driving it around town yesterday running some errands it shows average fuel mileage at 10.6, what do you think. I think it's still breaking in. It's a 2013 with 55900 on it I previously had a dodge cummins that got about 12 mpg up until about 75k then it began to go up to 19 around town and 12 to 13 pulling my 5er. Never had a Duramax before.

RE: Some thoughts

Yea I've thought about seeing if there is a block to remove between rear axle and spring and bed depth is the same as previous truck, yes I did air hitch to gain some space but mostly for cushion, yes I ask know I can get risers from trailer saver and I also have a little adjustment left on the hitch. The problem with my trailer is it has the MoRyde IS Suspension System, no axles to flip but I could take it back to MoRyde and have them put a bigger spacer in it to get it to hieght.

RE: Some thoughts

No that's with no trailer on it, stock hieght. My previous truck a Dodhe Ram 3500 RWD was at 55 inches, I think I can make some adjustments to either the hitch pin or the 5th wheel hitch itself.

Some thoughts

Just replaced my tow vehicle with a new to me 2013 Duramax RWD 3500, I had a 2006 Dodge Ram with the 5.9 Cummins, Well, the dodge bedrail sat at 55 inches tall the Duramax sits at 57 inches so what do you think? It's 2 inches higher but when I hooked up with the dodge and raised the legs on my 5er it sagged to the helper spring (barely) then I would have to run the air bags I had on it to level the trailer and truck for towing then I also have a trailersaver airride hitch that I air up to raise the trailer nose another inch or so. So my question is what do you think, do you think the 2 inches higher on my new to me truck will make much difference? Before I had about 5 inches between bedrail and trailer. Oh the reason I haven't hooked it up a tried it yet is I had back surgery and my hitch is in the other truck which I get the hitch tomorrow but just wondering, I think it will be fine when I put the weight of the trailer onto the truck.

RE: Hey 20 info

Thanks, I'll look at 26 again but it comes out closer to Portland which is a little above where we are head d and would have to go back south on I 5 but I'll consider it.

RE: Mor Ryde Pin Box Question

I've had 2 MoRyde pin boxes and loved them both. Might raise 1 inch but you might be able to lower your 5th wheel hitch in truck.
