RE: Trailer, or 5th?

I'm also currently in the process of the big "switch-over" from a travel trailer to a 5'er. Just got the new tow vehicle, which will pull about ANY 5'er that we'd be looking at, and installed a front hitch mount on it. Both Yakima and Thule make a front hitch "Y" post that will hold the front bar for our kayak rack. The back bar will mount on the cab, where the front cab bar would normally be placed. This will allow us to carry our three 'yaks, and tow a 5'er.

RE: 2014 Ram 2500 6.4L Tow Review

So, as you can tell from the updated sig, after more research and test drives, I went with the 6.7L Cummins. Not being sure where DW wanted to go with new 5er, didn't want to come up short on tow rating. The 17,100# that the Cummins provides gives me endless possibilities.

RE: 2014 Ram 2500 6.4L Tow Review

Thank you for the link! That's also a great thread.... Too bad it got hijacked so many different directions!

RE: 2014 Ram 2500 6.4L Tow Review

VERY helpful thread, Gentlemen! I really appreciate the write-ups. Trying to decide the eternal gas vs. diesel question for me, on my next upgrade. The new 6.4L Hemi may be the answer for me. Wife wants to move to a 5'er in the 33' to 35' range, so definitely going to a 2500…. ib516, i'd like to get a bit more insight into why you went back to a gasser after 12 years in a diesel.

Since we havent completely decided on what 5'er we like best, and since I need to have a new TV before I can upgrade to a 5'er, I guess that the Rambox is not a good idea for me. Found this box in the mean time, and I'm hoping that I can make the combination work with a standard bed.

Hauling out an old post to see if anyone has more info on the subject? Looking at a new TV, and really like the Ram with Rambox option. DW is pushing hard for a 5'er that she loves the floorplan of… Are the narrow-bed Rambox equipped Ram's compatible with a 5'er?

RE: dodge and allison transmissions

This is what I'm struggling with.... after my research.I want the Cummins diesel, with the Allison tray, but no one makes that......... And by coincidence, the last to pieces of fire apparatus that I designed, BOTH had Cummins and Allison paired together.... too bad none of the P/U truck builders build that combination!

RE: Black Spots on underside of Awning - How to Remove?

I spray 409 on it, roll it up wet, let it sit in the sun for about 2 beers (30-45 minutes), unroll it, and rinse. Sometimes, if it got particularly dirty, it needs a bit of elbow-bgrease, but for that I just sue more 409 and a scrub brush on a broomstick...

RE: Looking for a good portable compressor

I picked up this one at the local Harbor Freight. It doesn't have the greatest ratings, but it's worked well for me for a few years now.

RE: water pump question

Sinks and showers require higher volume. Sounds like too small a pump in unit. Check the rating plate on the pump to see how many GPM it's rated for.
