RE: anybody buy at dave smith.in idaho?

Bought the GMC Canyon from them this past July. Lowest price I could find although it is a 2 hour drive for me. There is a reason they are the worlds largest Ram dealer and the PNW largest GM dealer. As I think the Texan suggested yes they did sell the dealership this past year but I got the same service and price as I did 10 years ago. Great folks to do business with.

RE: 2015 RAM 3500 SRW Review

But even at 70mph, the thing towed great. Hope you do not have ST tires on the trailer, as they are only rated to 65MPH. Chris Let me edit this, YES I have ST tires, NO they are not rated for 65mph. They are L rated tires, 75mph. Maybe share the manufacture of the ST tires rated at 75 MPH. Inquiring minds what to know :B

RE: No problem with payload here!

We often see such 'creativeness' leaving Homers parking lot. http://www.johnbridge.com/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=136381&stc=1&d=1358539037 What a joke. Hope that is a dash cam from a patrol car. Around here we would hit on most bridges and let me guess, I'd be paying the fix it bill for Joe stupid doing what stupid people do.

RE: 2013-14 Ram Recalls

This whole thread is a joke, right? Okay, I'll play along..... I heard from my barber today that his neighbor's cousin works on a Ram assembly line and they have been using peanut butter to weld the seams on the wiring harnesses that hold the anti-lock brake sensors in place. I've listed my truck for sale on Craigslist for 10% of what I paid for it and am going to buy a Ford so my family and I are safe. Wow, am I ever lucky! I could have really been injured. X2 General Mills has just recalled Cheerios cereal boxes 1.8 million of them... wonder if we can get Ford to make breakfast cereals... they never have recalls or cheated on emissions... Oh BTW Some Bible fellowship has predicted the end of the world on Wed Oct 7th, 2015... carp!! that's only a few hours away... so none of this matters anyways! :S ROTFLMAO Should I call the buyer of my last TV and warn him of things like frame twist in Fords..... oh wait it wasn't a Ferd :B or a PSD 6.0

RE: Who Says Honda "Ridgeline" Can't Tow 5th-Wheel

Personally that is one camper we have all run across. Do I pass it.... or lay back not following to closely because of sway or bad driver. Believe me that Ridgeline driver could care less about your rig or his for that matter. Good time for a bathroom break IMO.

RE: Picked up the new truck today.

We are the "Sequimites" buying the "old girl" and her new career will be as a full time horse trailer hauler. Congrats to you also in buying the "old girl". Just a warning though, animals can hear that Cummins about a mile away. My dog use to drive me crazy every time I started it without him. Heck he's still looking around the property for it some 2 months after it was sold.

RE: Help with Final Choice: Silverado or Ram 1500

If it were me, I'd keep my brand new Ram as your taking a depression hit switching for what 300 lbs? Funny you mention ride comfort. I know this is apple to oranges but this new 2015 Canyon is leap years ahead of my previous Ram as far a ride. Are they both 4WD?

RE: Picked up the new truck today.

She talks to us a lot about going over the speed limit, which she just loves to do, so am confused about her telling us this a lot! She also says turn left or right etc. We did not think we wanted NAV, however most Laramie are optioned with it and we are now glad we have it. LOL we have had navigation on every vehicle since 2004 and would not be without one as the DW can't read a map to well :B She ain't on this site ( I hope) :W The new camper ask me for all kinds of weights, length and such before it would boot up. Funny the first time back to the SB house it went crazy telling me things like area not mapped then finally a red screen and she said don't continue and turn around when possible. It was really kind of distracting as I was trying to climb the mountain with turns and gear selection on the maiden journey back home. Believe it is Garmen based unit and it's not to bad as far as navigation. Got the Magellan 9412 for the Canyon and its great although the screen is over kill for the small pickup. I'll most likely move it into the RV and just learn one system. Enjoy that new beast Chris. OBTW is the old TV mad and not talking to you now :R Nice shinny new girl setting next to a dusty older gal with lots of miles on her. I bet she won't start :E

RE: Do I have this right?

Diesel you will really appreciate the torque advantage when you drive in the mountains. Yeah I agree, he is from Oregon with that beautiful Oregon Coast Highway with plenty of ups and downs roads.

RE: Cleaning Windshield and Front Cap

THIS site has some great cleaning products for motorhomes/ RV's. I believe most are also Green or safe for the environment. I know she has segments in both the Tiffin and Newmar manuals for cleaning RV's. That 303 protectant seems to help keep the bugs off the front cap.

RE: Towing with Class A diesel pusher

At 78 feet you're illegal in all states, except south dakota. I was thinking the same thing. 78' is a pretty big number.

RE: Boy....they don`t build them like they used too!!!

Thanks for sharing. That is a AC under the dash over the hump right? That key by the hood area, Alarm or locking hood?

RE: Help! Confused by Tow Numbers

As bradyk says, look at payload first. The other numbers are interesting, and have varying degrees of applicability, but in almost every case, you will reach payload capacity before you reach any of the other numbers. If your payload is truly 1530 and change,then if the calculations laid out like bradyk shows it are realistic, then you should be "ok". Depends on how much margin you feel you want. Mike Axle ratings are equally important. It isn't uncommon on half tons that a full payload in the back will put you over the RAWR. LOL Kind of new to the MH world but in reading another forum LOTS of 2 axle diesel pushers run over their RAWR even though they have plenty of tire ratings. Slap a Harley and lift gate on the rear I bet some are 2k over RAWR's. ( Not recommended IMO) Point is I'm starting to think these axle ratings are purely a safety feature errr cover your A** move by the manufactures. I wouldn't go over any tire rating though. 15 series truck could easily switch out to a bigger rated tires IMO.

RE: Bit the Bullet and got a 2010 Power Wagon!!

Yowza! It needed tie rods, ball joints and steering gear after only 35k miles?? Pretty normal for the bigger tire group, and not far behind is the normal tire group :B Also those trucks most likely saw much more off road use than a normal Ram truck.

RE: Warm rear differential...

Not sure about your 2011 AAM axle but my previous 06 Ram AAM called for service every 15K miles full synthetic oil. IIRC the manual called for 90 and Dodge later had a recommended weight of 120 for towing heavy. Moot point IMO though, I can't see the pumpkin heating up your bed :W

RE: 2003 ram 3500

All I gotta say if your worried about resale value down the road ya all gotta be looking at a Dodge. That's kinda shocking compared with other brands. What is this guy talking about? Go check Kelly Blue book on 03s and find out yourself what that guys talking about. LOL!!! :h Look at this rig!! 2006 Ram 3500 The dealer can't even get the type of transmission correct!!! LOL Russ, he'll never get that much. But he will get $35k for it. Don't ask how I know :W

RE: I think this guys needs a truck!!!

But wait... he is well within all his axle weights and combined ratings. As some would say, he's good to go :W
