RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Jon, rain has followed from TX, through Louisiana, Mississippi,Alabama and now here in NC. We’re supposed to leave here Friday to finish last leg to WV., chased by rain in NC, TN, VA and WV... this is the most rain I’ve seen in a while. I hope you and your family are all OK. We’re fine. You take care. Hope to get on here more once settled in WVa. Take care buddy, Jim

RE: Which Air Bags Are Best???

About 16 years ago, I put Firestone airbags on a Chevy 2500 and the instruction on installation stated that a minimum of 5-10 psi should be maintained in the airbags, when running unloaded, to help with longevity of the air bags. Weren’t supposed to run them completely empty. I don’t know about today, but that was instructions back then. Jim

RE: Which Air Bags Are Best???

I towed a 16.5 5er with a pinweight Of 3400#. with my 2013 Ram 3500 And didn’t need airbags. If you need airbags to tow that light of a weight. Something is wrong with your Dually. My 2016 came with OEM fear air assist...it autolevels the load, but no after market needed for your Dually for no more than you’re towing. If your 3500 is a SRW truck. it could STILL handle that light of a 5er. Jim

RE: Record high price for used 2018 Ram 2500?

I wouldn’t trust whomever is selling it.. The 2500’s DONT come with the Aisin transmission. Only 3500’s and up have the Aisin. Jim

RE: Torqlift revolution

Last step is a little high on the MS.. Ron has a good fix. I like the Torklift steps with 5 steps because from top to bottom, or vice versa , all steps at decent height. Jim

RE: Torqlift revolution

A simple drop down support on the OEM steps will work very similarly without a huge expenditure of green stuff. I changed out my OEM three step to a QuadraStep 4 step. Makes getting in so much easier. These tall trailers need 4 steps as OEM. Peggy didn't think they would make that much difference...until the first time she used them, instant convert. A little more to it than that. Once installed you can adjust top step height to where it’s easier to step in or out of the RV. It does have adjustable bottom leg supports that allow stability and adjust for uneven terrain. All aluminum and a quality built product. Jim

RE: Torqlift revolution

Got rid of the OEM steps on our MS. High first step. Wife had a hip replacement and I’d had a stroke with weak left leg. Installed the 5 Step Revolution Glow steps a little over a year ago. We love them. No issues. Adjustable step into the 5er on the top step and bottom step legs for stabilization. They also work great for our dog... Well worth it and I’d highly recommend them. Jim

RE: Cummins/ Achates Diesel

When will Cummins stop calling motors “engines”? Many years ago, if you talked about a “ motor”, you were talking more about AC or DC electric “motors. Engine meant an internal combustion enginegas or diesel powered engine. Maybe it’s regional, but early in College Engineering classes and in the USAF (circa 1969-75). If you called something a motor, it was either run off AC or DC. Engine meant gas or diesel fueled, or jet engine, all internal combustion engines. It was the way I was taught growing up and same in the Air Force and College. Jim

RE: Level Up problems

Had the same problem tried all the fixes. Lippert replaced mine under warranty. Replacement is the only permanent fix. Pretty much a fact for the DRV. It’s a heavy unit. My 36RSSB3, a 37’ over all length has a GVW of 19K. loaded to 18,250# with a pin of 4250#. Both front jacks replaced with higher rated more robust rams and no more problems. Jim

RE: Officially Joined the Ram Club Yesterday

2014 3500 Ram dually is not happy with his truck at this time and the DIC told him to stop so he is waiting for 2 repairs and 2 repairs with no parts available. So again nothing is perfect and I felt for them but as I told him he made it off the road and has everything he needs at our rv resort. That made him smile with a thank you. chevman Not sure what you are referring to. If it's the water pump recall there ARE parts available now. If it's the parking interlock that is a NON issue as using parking brake will cover the rare possibility it comes out of park. Who is "DIC" ? DIC..... Digital Information Center, that’s what Ram calls their information screens in the vehicle.

RE: Level Up problems

EVERYTHING listed above to try to fix this issue DID NOT work for the LCI level up system on my 2016 DRV 36RSSB3. We tried ALL THE ABOVE. Took it to be worked on under warranty repair. They used fork oil to see if that helped. They replaced the valves, replaced the pump, replaced the door side front Ram.. Did every trick that was stated above and more. I was told by Ron McCoy, who was on the ground floor of the manufacture of the level up system. The DRV IS IS A HEAVY UNIT! With heavy pin weight; mine is 4125#. He stated that the front rams on DRV aren’t robust enough. That’s why they’re encased inside a steel tube.. to keep them from BENDING!!. He stated when rams and possibly slides start acting up... and I had 3 rams and a slide I had to fix up just to tow my 5er! He replaced BOTH front RAMS, ( that’s the recommendation), with two 8K each Rams. It’s THE ONLY THING THAT FIXED MINE AS WELL AS QUITE A FEW OTHERS.. THE ONLY THING.. everything else was tried and nothing fixed the issue. Mine was fixed under warranty. It’s MUCH more robust and in over 3000 miles of towing and fulltiming, zero issues since two front rams were replaced. It wasn’t the valves , poppets, pump, hydraulics, adding fork oil or anything stated above.. and believe me it was all tried by so called RV repair technicians. Been there, done that, lived it and actually know what it takes to fix it. Go to a DRV SITE AND CHECK IT OUT. I’m talking heavy pin WEIGHT on an already heavy DRV.. Don’t know about other 5ers but became quite learned on the DRV. I was also an Engineer and spent about 14 years dealing with hydraulics at one job in my career . Jim

RE: Level Up problems

I have a 2016 36RSSB3, and had issues with it, it was ridiculous. Lippert Serviceman replace my two front rams with 2 brand new ones. Completely new front set up. Fixed my problems... zero issues with new set up. Rams are more robust . Well worth the fix! Jim

RE: Information from The Ram Guys about buying a 3500

Original post explicitly stated, “3500 Dually”. As stated, a Dually can be had with any of the aforementioned gearing. I might add, that my truck is also a 4 wheel drive, so all weights and mpg’s given were for a 1 Ton Dually, longbed, CC, 4X4, with Aisin tranny and the 4.10. Even with a tonnau cover, mpg wouldn’t be an additional 5mpg.. if it sounds too good to be true.. it is, no probably about it with my truck. Jim

RE: Information from The Ram Guys about buying a 3500

Jim, are you coming out West this year? Chris Was hoping this Spring Chris. Not real sure at this point. It may end up being late fall. I’m in Cleveland TX right now. Hope all is well with you and your family buddy! Jim

RE: Information from The Ram Guys about buying a 3500

Jim good to see you here also! Curious at 28,400# combined are you over 14k on the 6 truck tires? I am guessing VERY close either way. NOT that it matters. Actually, latest weight check with my wife, me, two dogs , full tank of DEF and full tank of diesel, loaded for trip, and 5er loaded for fulltiming, heading to TX in late Dec of 17 was 5600# for front axle, 400# under FAWR Of 6,000# 8200# for rear axle, 1550# under RAWR Of 9750# =13,800# .... 200# under GVWR. 14,000# =10880# under GCWR Of 39,100# . You . Loaded truck without 5er Steer axle=5500# Drive axle=3940# With 5er Steer axle = 5600# Drive axle= 8200# Trailer axle= 14,420# Pinweight 8200-3940# = 4260# + 100# on front axle=4360# Trailer weight is 14,400# + 4360# = 18,760#.. camper rated at 19K with 2 8K axles. Camper is probably lighter now. Very recently got rid of the couch/ sleeper and 2 recliners. Replaced with better furniture but lighter. Hope that helps Weights are from Certfied Automated Truck scales at truck stop off I40 in Candler NC. Jim Jim
