RE: Hirearchy

Has never happened to me. Biggest Class A down to the smallest pup everyone we have met has been friendly. Personally I don't care one way or the other, we don't travel to socialize.

RE: Place to stay SW utah

Bauers worked well for us last fall. Great WIFI to boot.

RE: PA Turnpike Tolls

Used our EZ Pass in IL, IN, OH, PA, NY and MA. Something wrong with yours.

RE: Weight Distribution hitch..

Tongue weight is 1320. That is a lot for 1200 lb bars to handle.

RE: 3/4 Ton Ultimate HD Test Is In

My truck has the following gears: 3.13, 2.42, 1.55, 1.00 and .71. Put that 2.42 2nd gear in the Ram and it would have had no problem holding it on those grades. I didn't running 98% of GCWR. I like the six speed gear ratios in the Ford and GM much better than the Ram. I didn't know that there was so much of a difference.

RE: How much will a big fifth wheel limit us?

Yep, internet is going to be your problem in remote locations. May not even get satellite in wooded areas.

RE: 8% grade descent

My tranny will drop to first in T/H. Happened once in Utah last year coming down a twisty 12% grade. Mostly held me at 30 MPH but still had to brake a little for the 25 MPH curves.

RE: 3/4 Ton Ultimate HD Test Is In

6.0 to 6.4 is a 6.7% increase, not 20%.

RE: 6.0/3.73/6speed in mountains pulling 8000 lbs

I don't think your computer would have gone to 1st or 3rd going 45 uphill. The truck did what it is supposed to do and so did you. 235 for a short period is not going to hurt anything at all.

RE: Equalizer/Anti Sway Hitch

You can buy one and install yourself for about 500, not including tools. To buy from the dealer and have the dealer install is usually in the 750 range. 1200 is outrageous.

RE: South Carolina, Good Samaritan

Great story. Thanks for the post.

RE: Cold tire pressure question?

Get a small air compressor and get them all to a first thing in the morning reading of 50. Forget about nitrogen fill. Air is 78% nitrogen and is at your fingertips.

RE: What socket size is it?

Mine are both 1 1/8. As suggested take it with you to tractor supply. They let me bring sockets outside to test them to make sure I got the right ones.

RE: Utah Roads For Class A

We towed on all of those roads last Sept/Oct except 128 and 9. We drove both and they are doable, but 128 is a bit tight in places. May want to just do 128 with the toad. Some people say 12 is bad, but we loved it. You will too. The 'cliff' section is only a mile long and 35 MPH. October weather is chilly. Was in the 20's or 30's every night in Torrey the 2nd week of October when we were there.

RE: Payload an issue?

I don't think you will be anywhere near a 1400 lb hitch weight. Jayco says 700 lb dry hitch weight which is a light hitch weight for that size trailer. Probably looking at 1K tops so wait until you get loaded up for camping and take it to the scales with your family before buying a new truck.

RE: Transmission Temp?

That's why I use a Scan Gauge on my Ford. The dash needle doesn't budge until 230 from what I have read.

RE: Another weight question

Is it (drive axle with spring bars untensioned- drive axle of just the truck)? 5160-3660= 1500# Assuming the truck payload is exactly the same before/after the hitched-up number, that one is probably closest without actually weighing the tongue. Shocking, eh? That is just plain wrong. The 400+ pounds move off of the front axle to the rear axle is not tongue weight.

RE: Another weight question

The second one. 1060-1080 tongue weight. If you have an Equal-i-zer 4 point then no, you can't just upgrade the bars. The bars and sockets have a larger diameter. You may be able to get new bars along with new sockets. Give Progress and a call and ask them.

RE: What does 11,000 lbs of towing capacity mean?

You said 3000lb payload. That is a stripped down regular cab. This thread was talking about a particularly large fiver. Any 2K plus pin weight is going to put tremendous stress on the semi float rear axle of the HD. Again, you may be OK with this, but not me.

RE: Traveling Route 89 South from I 70

Be sure to stop at Red Canyon after you turn onto Highway 12. There are some short spectacular hikes right from the visitor center and there is decent RV parking there (at the visitor center) as well.
