RE: Ordering 2015 ram 3500

Does the EVIC stay where it was last or do you have to scroll down to it each time you start the truck? On mine it stays where you left it last. You can scroll to individual gauges or have then all listed at the same time. There is trans temp, oil pressure, engine oil temp, coolant temp and volts. I have the gas engine the diesel may differ. I should also add you can look at a digital Speedo, mpg's, tire pressures in all six tires, trip A odo with mpg's and trip B odo with mpg's. My truck is the base Tradesman model with Uconnect 5.0.

RE: Ordering 2015 ram 3500

I wonder how many hoops you have to jump through when it comes time for the dealership to honor that lifetime warranty.

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

Just installed the Torklift tie downs on my new Ram yesterday. Holy******it was easy! Got them from Tweetys and the shipping was stupid fast. Front and rear tie downs were installed in just over an hour. Hopefully I get my swing out brackets in the mail today and I will have my camper on the truck before this weekend.

RE: 2014 Ram 2500 6.4L Tow Review

Just bought a 2014 3500 DRW with the 6.4 a week ago. This is replacing my 2011 F350 SRW with the 6.2. I needed a dually to haul my bigger truck camper and was going to buy another Ford when I came across my Ram. It had been sitting on the dealers lot for 8 months (for obvious reasons)so I got a great deal on it. Haven't had the TC on it yet but so far driving it to work I really like It. This is my first truck that isn't a Ford. http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y539/rzar66/DSC01434_zps6f38d216.jpg

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

I had a Hellwig Bigwig on my F350SRW and it was a huge improvement over the factory sway bar. But I'm not buying anything until I get the camper on my new truck and drive it first.

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

I don't think I will need one but I was just wondering if Ram offered one because it looks like there are mounts for one.

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

Been driving the truck back and forth to work everyday avoiding highways during engine break-in and it's getting a surprising 14.8 mpg according to the lie-o-meter. My Ford would get 11 to 12 mpg on the same route. I am able to drive a long stretch of the route with it in 4 cylinder mode. I'm sure that helps. Question for all you Ram dually owners. Does Ram offer a rear sway bar for this truck? Don't know if I will ever need one but I do see where there are possible mounts for one on the rear axle housing.

I had this happen to me on a new Caterpillar engine a few years ago. End of the dip stick was stuck in the tube. I bought a new dip stick and used that to force the broken piece into the oil pan. I then drained the engine oil into a clean pan and rubbed a strong speaker magnet on the bottom of the oil pan to fish the broken piece out the drain hole.

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

Nice RAM 3500 to go with that Lance 1050S Here is a small picture of what yours will look like: http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z127/JumboJet1949/DSCF8119_zps6f33306f.jpg Get yourself a set of Torklift StableLoads. The 1050S will set the back down some. Lookin good JumboJet. I was the one that PM'ed you over on the Lance forum a few months ago asking about the Ram and the 1050S. Can't wait to get my TC mounted.

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

Thanks for all the complements. The truck is lightly optioned but has everything I want with the exception of the 5th wheel and gooseneck prep which I don't need. Probably explains the high payload rating on a crewcab truck. It's rated to tow 15k because it has the 4.10 gears. I Just ordered the torklift tie downs from Tweetys and bought some used dually swing out brackets for the camper. Next will be some nerf bars (wife steps) and some mudflaps. The only problem I have now is backing a dually under camper. The Ford that I used to have was a regular cab SRW so it's a big change for me. Our next trip will be Thanksgiving in Death Valley.

RE: Movin' on up to a new Dually!

Bedlam is right. Although we do plan to tow in the future it won't be much, probably tow a side by side. My previous Ford was a gasser and I was never short of power in any situation hauling a TC, even in the mountains. The truck will also be somewhat of a daily driver for my really short commute to work. Lots of short trips unloaded is not the best for a Diesel engine and it emissions equipment. Also the price was right. The truck I bought was sitting on the dealers lot for 8 months for obvious reasons and they had another one exactly like it (one vin number off). I saw their desperation and took advantage of it. They just about gave it to me. The Gas tank I believe is 32 gals. which is a little disappointing because my Ford had a 35 gal tank.

Movin' on up to a new Dually!

Picked her up on 2 days ago. 2014 Ram 3500 4x4 drw with the 6.4 Hemi and 6667 lbs. of payload. It is replacing my 2011 Ford 4x4 F350 srw regular cab with the 6.2. The Ford was a great truck but when I bought a bigger camper with a slide out I wanted more truck. Just waiting for my tiedowns to come so I can mount the Lance. http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y539/rzar66/DSC01434_zps6f38d216.jpg

RE: The price of wanting a "stick"

On my Ford I have a manually shifted 4x4 with manual hubs from the factory. Its not available on some higher trim models especially if you have bucket seats with the center console.

RE: Water Pump Was Left On

I blame it on the black tank too.

RE: Water Pump Was Left On

My wife did the exact same thing. Water pump ran all day on an empty tank. This was 4 months ago and the pump still works as new.

RE: Attention all Wolf Creek 850 Owners

Nolan, I already miss my little Lance 850. A non slide no hang over the rear camper. I traveled some of the same roads as you do in Borrego. My 1050 now I have to go a little slower. I almost bought a brand new WC before my first Lance for $15k but got a bad vibe for the dealer in AZ selling it. Just reinforced the idea of buying close to home, and the factory is not much further away. For what you do the WC is perfect and there are not many other campers like it. I hope you can get your issues solved with you new camper. Will Norms RV honor your warranty issues?

RE: Attention all Wolf Creek 850 Owners

An update from 2014. My Wolf Creek 850 is a brand new 2014, and just experienced the same failure. Luckily, I noticed it in my mirror, and suffered no other damage to the camper or truck. It happened while cruising on the highway. (Not off road, etc). THIS ISSUE HAS NOT BEEN FIXED in 2014's! Also, interestingly, Northwood says this is NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY Everything else aside, The fact that they won't warranty it is troubling. Nobody's really talking about THAT. Why would anyone want buy a product from a company that won't stand behind 100%? That's a good question for the OP.

RE: Lance 992 Actual Weight?

Don't wait too long to buy your 992. Lance is discontinuing the 992 and a few other models this year. If you are buying new, what's on the lots now is all that's left.
