RE: Bent plate

I think the owner should supply a new hitch as it is all on him. Frank. Really? No responsibility for the guy towing the trailer to look at the king pin before hooking up? If you were towing a bumper pull, would you look to see what size trailer ball was needed? How is this different? Sounds like an accident to me. Unfortunate situation with enough blame to go around if that is what you are looking for. If I was the one towing the trailer, I would be happy to split the cost of repair with the trailers owner, but I would also be willing and not upset to pay for it myself.

RE: Would you buy this truck?

If you are truly interested, you should call. Certainly isn't unheard of for a dealer to sell a car and not update thier website.

RE: 2015 F150 EPA Rating

Good for Ford. Interested to see some real world numbers.

RE: Bent plate

Sounds like he left the capture plate for his Superglide on his trailer. I don't know for sure, but I would venture a guess that you are looking at a new hitch (or at least a new head if it is removable). I would not want to tow with it that way.

RE: Renting RV Late Dec. - Phoenix-Denver...All Routes Unsafe?

Great route, wrong time of year to do it. I would be willing to try it in the winter if I wasn't on a set time schedule, but that doesn't sound like the case for you. Why not spend the time at the Grand Canyon, Moab, Brice & Arches, return to Phoenix?

RE: Would you buy this truck?

Did I miss where they posted the price? Nice truck, and the pre-emissions trucks will command a premium.

RE: Auxiliary Diesel Tank Gravity Feed vs. Electronic pump

What is so bad about fueling with RV in tow? "I'm looking forward to never, ever having to fill up my truck with my TH in tow". If you don't get it, you don't get it. I'm in the neighborhood of 70' long when I tow tandem. My aux tank is also one of the best additions I have made to my truck.

RE: Diesel Tuners

It is not credible that some guy has discovered something about how to change the tuning of an engine that escaped the hundreds of professional full time engineers at the auto and engine manufacturers.It's only credible to those who believe in conspiracies. Actually, it makes sense to me. Tuners play by different rules. "Offroad use only". You can do a lot if you don't pay attention to EPA regulations.

RE: Don't believe the combined weight ratings

My little half ton had a rating of 9,000lb for a loaded TT. Typically, the trailer used in determining the "tow" rating is a flat bed with wheels at each corner....therefore, little or no tongue weight. Ron Curious where this info came from. Not something that I have ever heard. Lots of variables when towing. I would say that some manufactures overstate, while some are overly conservative. The standardized SAE test they are adopting should clear things up.

RE: 18 mpg Dodge while towing?

I had a similar truck for 10 years, and around 115,000 miles. Best it ever got not towing was a tank at 24 MPH driving through Yellowstone. Towing my 5er and boat was closer 9, but I tow 65 - 70 MPH. If it gets what he claims, he should keep it forever.

RE: Trip Report - 2014 Ram 2500 Hemi 6.4

Nice report. The new trucks interiors are SOOOOO much nicer than the older ones.

RE: Oil extractor

I use one similar to thisthisthis for my boat. Works well. Make sure you warm up the engine first.

RE: Update Trouble of the Worst Kind.Black Tank Won't Empty Help

Is what you are seeing in the holding tank liquid or solid? If solid, you have the "pyramid of poo". I had that a few years back. Removed the toilet, used one of those sewer snakes to break up some of it, then used Rid-x in the tank to take out the build up. If it is liquid you are seeing, I would think that despite what you have done, the valve is not opening, or something (feminine hygiene product) is blocking the drain. Good luck.

RE: RV cover...yes or no? need opinions please.

I tried a RV cover one year. It was an ADCO, for my trailer, and still ended up scuffing the trailer where it rubbed when the wind would blow. Living in an area prone to wind, I would never do a cover again.

RE: I came to the dark side

Congrats on the purchase! I strongly recommend getting under bed rails. Those types of hitches are much nicer than something with in bed rails. I have a Reese Elite 18k I am happy with. Tell me about your boat. I have towed tandem for years. Just uprgraded from my 21' Crownline to a 23' Malibu last month.

RE: No 2 Tone Trucks

Only thing that I see with the limited that is not available with the longhorn is the black leather. I thought the Limited was the Longhorn package without the stiching. Pretty sure it is not a higher trim level.

RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

Well I have to disagree 110% with your comment "10 years ago, Dodge had front end and transmission issues with the worst fit and finish truck. While being owned by Daimler they made huge improvements each year. " Damn-Lire had owed us for six years ten years ago and those were the worse times Chrysler had ever had! Robert Eaton....never mind. Enjoy your new truck I'm sure it will serve you well. Don X2 (mostly). Daimler did Chrysler NO favors, but the Cerebus times were rock bottom. That said, my '03 3500 was the 2nd best vehicle I have owned (my current truck is the best).

RE: Bye, bye storage facility!

Congrats on the property! As you said, go bigger than you think you need. Mine is 24' x 52'. It is deep enough, but I wish it was a little wider. I would also make sure you do a 14' door in case you want to change to a 5er or a MH someday. My door is 14' x 20', custom made, and was around $5k. Have fun with the process!

RE: Questions about a 2012 Dodge 2500HD / Cummins

My 2012 has served me well. No complaints here. There is a recall on the left front TRE, but the dealer will take care of that.
