RE: Plastic tent canvass attachment point to trailer

http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27209384.cfm This may help. It helped me and I was able to get the J-hook and have a local upholster shop sew it on my tent for me.

Any benefits to high octane

Are there any benefit to running octane gas when towing? I had heard when towing use high octane gas.

RE: Ram 1500 3.55?

Did you verify the gear ratio on the ones rated to tow 10000? Well lets say I went to this linkEquipment Listingto see the specific build for a particular truck via the trucks VIN. It would show 3.55. I would take that same VIN number and enter it into the Look up my vehicle and it would show it tow rating. I may also have jumped gun to my first thoughts as; the more I look at trucks with the 3.55 gear it appears why I'm seeing the two differences is that a 4x2 with 3.55 tows 8000# and a 4x4 with 3.55 tows 1000#. I'm doing this for two reasons: 1. So I will not have to go to lot to actual look at the truck when it does not tow what I want. 2. Went to 1 dealer and I asked "what it tows", oh it tows 12000#'s. Looked at sticker and seen 3.21 gear and I KNEW NO WAY A 3.21 CAN TOW 12000#, MUCH LESS A 3.55. So just trying to avoid useless rides to dealer and dealer saying it tows this. So at least when I get there I know exactly what it tows at least.

RE: Ram 1500 3.55?

Note what each has where mine says 2051. http://cimg3.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.f150online.com-vbulletin/800x600/picture_php_pictureid_175291_532757fe4edd96dc1f045eb3d7a49dbd1894863a.jpg width=640 Thanks, using yours as an example it could be said? 10800#'s towing capacity (as advertised) - 2051# = 8749#(actual tow capacity) AS LONG AS PAYLOAD (Gas, people, cargo)AND TOUNGE WT DOES NOT EXCED THE 2051, correct? Thinking like this you should be easy to determine the MAX TT you can tow safely and also not work truck to hard.
