RE: Amsoil OE Synthetic

Thanks for the comment Cummins, If this works out, I may be a convert. No problem! Forget the nay sayers, they make great quality products. Their Severe Gear lube is very high rated.

RE: 2015 Ford F-350 0-60 MPH Test

I have never heard of a dealer that sells Rams and Fords on the same service shop. Must be some kind of new thing that only a select few know of. Oh, and this is coming from a person that has worked for Ford and Cummins so be careful how you respond and it better be the truth because I will see right through it. He has been blowing the same ol smoke for a long time. Who knows what the truth is. At least he provides entertainment.

RE: Amsoil OE Synthetic

Okay, the Amsoil OE is in the van along with the Wix oil filter. Of course its way to early to tell if there is a major difference. The engine was noticeably quieter, the Pentastar is not the quietest motor in the world. Made a pretty significant difference in the sound. Even my wife commented that she "couldn't hear anything" So, thats pretty cool, we will see how this oil works out. So far so good though. This oil change has to be the easiest oil change I have ever done. The oil filter is on top of the motor and super easy to access. Thanks! Jeremiah That is a common comment when changing to AMZ/OIL. Another one is how much quieter the engine will be on a cold start up.

RE: 2014 Ram SRW 3500. do I need a slider hitch for a FW?

I'll add that I do not have the factory FW prep. Didn't think id need it.:S Not a problem the B&W GNRK 1314 at $439 is very easy to install then you can add the B&W B&W RVK3500 for $879. Actually the puck system would cost less to add. The parts are available from Chrysler and from what I have heard they are not too hard to install.

RE: 2015 Ford F-350 0-60 MPH Test

Fish give the 6.7 Cummins head gasket failure a break! You know all your examples are from engines that have tuners and are deleted! This is what the op said in the comments section. "I believe it was from overheating during a high speed run... wanted to see if the truck was governed. Leaned into the throttle pretty good for an excessive period, got it up around 100mph and shut it down. Not long after that i noticed the bubbles in my coolant overflow. Its a very common problem with the 6.7, too much boost and high EGTs will do it quick. My next mod is a set of pillar gauges to monitor all of that..." I ran my 11 HO at the limiter for many miles at 104 mph rolling across hyw 10 heading to Phoenix more than once and towed my combined load of 29K+ at 75 or more into strong headwinds many times with no ill effects! Add a tuner and do the deletes it's a different game.

RE: 2015 Ford F-350 0-60 MPH Test

I thought of Fish when the star of the show was all excited about how Ford built their Diesel "IN HOUSE" HA yea if you can call it in house made in Mexico. Yes Fish my truck is assembled in Mexico. I can tell you the gearing does make a big difference. Went to dinner with the family last night when heading out of town I was sitting at the light in my nearly 10K RAM 4:10's and my son was behind me in his 9K Limited 3500LB Crew 3:42's. Both trucks have Aisin's. We both hit it hard off the light. I pulled ahead off the light and stayed evenly ahead up to 60mph. Point is my truck is 1K heavier and I would have had a faster 0-60 than him and that is with the same HP and TQ. At the end of the 1/4 mile he would have passed me no doubt.

RE: New 5th Wheel.... Worried

The real question is can your truck handle a minimum 3,360# pin at 20%? Or easily up to 25% at 4,200# pin???? The 360IBL has a GVWR of 14,000 lbs for 2800 lbs pin at 20%. Thanks I was looking at the wrong number! IMHO 20% is a minimum if 25% you are looking at 3,500#

RE: White vs. trailers with color

We are approaching our third summer in the Texas heat and sun with this full body paint Landmark. With occasional washing and one waxing the paint on this still looks brand new...in addition, we have no problem whatsoever keeping this rig just as cool and comfortable as our previous "white" fivers with decals...full body paint is the only way to go!! http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff162/kakampers/2ce98b84-f4f9-4c4c-92f7-f0ca0cf551a9.jpg That is what I like to hear. We ordered full body paint on MS on order. I was concerned about the darker colors but Alicia at RR almost insisted on a 3rd AC unit so we went with her advice. Your combo looks very nice!

RE: White vs. trailers with color

Cummins12V98 - that's the color of our Elite! We've had so many nice comments on the color scheme. It's very easy to find in a campground when you forget what site your in, LOL ~ Mark Nice to hear! I am still concerned since we only chose the color from the one listed at RV's for less. We ended up going MS with most of the Elite options. It's a 39TKSB3. The one thing is it will for sure look different than most. I noticed in your sig yours is a 2010. Is your paint scheme "Cinder Ridge"?

RE: DRW vs SRW ??

Depends what model year and make SRW you're looking at. Some new Rams can have 4000# payload. Show me one big boy:B And no regular cab 6.4 Hemi's please :W 4k payload minus you, your wife, couple of kids, big dog, hitch alone is what 250 lbs, firewood, bedliner, stuff, and etc. Your payload just got really smaller if you have a 3500 lb pin weight on a SRW truck. Also your going by RAWR which is really only the tire ratings. Even my old DRW has a RAWR of 9700 lbs or so which is almost double the new SRW truck ratings. Some just hook up and go, others think about it. Was talking to my Son last night he bought a 15 RAM 3500 SRW rear air Limited Crew with long bed. He wanted to hook up to my Mobile Suites to see how his truck would do. I said it would pop his rear tires. He thought I was full of BS until I said ok your rear axle weighs about 3,400# and my pin is about 5,400#. Also the hitch is 200#+. He then said ok never mind!

RE: Choosing proper tow vehicle...Video

The topic has been hashed and rehashed many times already. But if even only one person learns something from the video it did some good. I posted it for the newbies! Hopefully it will get a few from believing the "you can tow anything" with your 250/2500 folks.

RE: Brake Pads

Another vote for Hawk pads. Last spring I installed Hawk LTS Light Truck & SUV (semi-met) pads and SP Perf Slotted rotors on my then '03 F250. Was VERY happy with them, but sadly I couldn't make full use of them as I got rid of the truck later in the year. Like the idea of the slotted rotors to get rid of heat build up and pads were very impressive. Had no issue towing our 5er with 'em. Aint that the way it always is, make something nice so someone else can enjoy it!

RE: Sailun S-637

I have run 17.5 H rated Sailun tires for a year now. No blowouts like I had with the GoodYear bombs that were previously on the trailer. Sailun is a much better tire than the Goodyear and at a third the price. What were the date codes of the GY tires? Were they "G" rated? If so why not go with "G" Sailun's? Good question, good point...Were you running GY G614's ?? If so, what was the date code and why didn't you just go to a G rated Sailun instead of going to a 17.5" Sailun? Inquiring minds want to know! I think you just need to get over the fact that someone could possibly want something different then you, or quite possibly a better product then yours.You come across its my way or the highway. give it a rest. Sorry that Sailun is becoming a popular tire with actual better reviews then GY has ever had. Don't believe anyone google GY ,and read the failures, and not just from the years you seem to be stuck on. I think you need to quit getting stirred up about me giving my experience with a product and giving reasons for why I buy that product. My comments are not to get you or anyone else to dump what you have but are for those in the market for a new tire. What skin is it if I pay more for a tire than you do? No shin loss for me if you choose to buy something else. Pretty much the same Merry Go Round with TrailerAid, B&W, RAM, CUMMINS, Michelin MS2's, Bilstien's, the list goes on for the products I have used and get great service from. Notice something about the things I just listed? They are all what the others compare them selves to! Promote what you want and I will do the same.

RE: Sailun S-637

Got my Sailun tires in today but didn't think about the valve stems. I've got the high pressure rubber ones rated at 80psi. I ordered from E-Trailer the metal ones rated at 100psi. Think there the same stems that were in my Cardinal that had G tires. These tires do look very stout. I hope to have them on before our first trip out in our new 5er. I've got the 6 point level but I think I'm gonna use my big bottle iack to lift her up, only takes a little to get the tires off the ground. Why would you use the "Big bottle jack" when the 6 point system is designed to lift the whole trailer? Then you can replace all 4 tires at the same time. I have the Lippert 'Level-Up' system. I believe the manual specifically states to not use it to change tires. FYI - When the Level-Up system has leveled the rig, the tires are most of the way, but not completely off the ground. It takes most of the trailer's weight off the tires, but I think the unloaded springs won't allow the tires to come up off the ground. Got it! I was thinking of another type.
