RE: Anybody regret buying too much truck?

Go big! You WILL buy a larger in about 3 years and be thankful to have a TV to handle it.

RE: Hot in the NW!

Yes it's been hot here in Southern BC, too. We have had only about 10% of our normal rainfall since May and as a result have a complete sprinkling ban on lawns. Oh well, at least I don't have to cut it now! No complaining, though because we will be in to our 4-5 months of rain before we know it! Hopefully the Washington fires get under control because we are planning on doing the Cascade Loop later this month. You will give the RAM a nice workout on HWY 20. Even HWY2 has a couple nice grades. Uh oh, should I be looking to get that "weak" head gasket addressed before we go? ;) We are really looking forward to it. We did the North Cascades about 15 years ago but have never done the South Cascade run. Not to hijack the thread but if there are any sights we should see please feel free to PM me. Yes give it a couple extra turns for good measure! Posts always get sidetracked! It's still about the NW. I like going East on HWY 2 the Town of Leavenworth is a great little tourist trap. From there Lake Chelan is very nice and on to Winthrop. I like going West on HWY 20 the grade is very steep I think I pulled it at with er 42 or 44 mph with the 11 RAM and 07 MS and on the big corner had to slow down then continue up the long grade. Lots of beautiful scenery along the entire trip. The Dam at Newhalem has a tour, at least it used to. Back to HWY 2 the scenery along the Wenatchee river is awesome. Take your time there are a lot of places to shop and just enjoy the scenery.

RE: Prodigy P2 Error

oh yes; we unplugged the P2 and plugged it back in; tried a new wiring harness; just sucked it up and bought a new one OK Mine went on the fritz once because the trailer plug came undone and set a code. I called Tekonsha, they were very nice and said to unplug the controller for a bit then reconnect and all was well. Sorta, it was still a POS!

RE: Prodigy P2 Error

We solved our issue. The Prodigy P2 brake controller obviously shorted out someway. We went to the Camping World store in Denton this morning and tried a different wiring harness with the old controller and same issue. Bought a new P3 and wiring harness and the issue has been resolved. We will be able to travel safely tomorrow to go home. Thanks for all the suggestions and help. IMHO the P-2 is a POS. Let us know your thoughts on the P-3. Did you try unplugging the P-2 then plugging it back in?

RE: Bio Diesel VS Diesel

Read the signs, most say "UP TO" that does NOT mean there is that amount.

RE: Prodigy P2 Error

Unplug the controller for a few minutes that should do it.

RE: Yes I did it, 2015 F-150 and 35 foot TT

"replace the Goodyear street tires with 10 ply load range E tires and it is much more stable" That my friends is a smart man! Those soft tires that come on the 1/2 tons are for ride comfort not much else. Stiffen those side walls and the chances of loosing control or having a lot of sway is greatly diminished with the proper tires!

RE: items for sale

Is it okay to post personal items for sale on here? For instance a hitch. You need to be a little more creative!

RE: 60" Bed Height

Well i had it done. As suspected, i only gained an inch and a half. Truck drives a lot lighter. I feel pretty good about it, now that ive done my part we'll see how it goes on wednesday. Your pulling power will be better with the stock tires.

RE: Does my usage warrant diesel? Cummins 6.7 with AISIN...

" 68RFE doesn't really have a great reputation " Where do you get this impression? The 68RFE is a great transmission with very few issues. 65K on mine towed a combined30K load at least 1/2 of those miles even had the wrong 3:42 gears never even a burp!

RE: Quick, someone talk me out of elec/hydraulic disc brakes

After total frustration and reading many post here on this forum I took the plunge and install electric over hydraulic disc brakes on my toy hauler this week. Got the best deal through Eastern Marine at $1360.00. Drove one hour each way to their showroom to save on the shipping cost. They have some discounts going on this month. I got Kodiak Brakes, Carlisle Hydrastar actuator, and brakes lines. By myself, only in the mornings, I had everything installed early on the 4th morning. I did not rush, took my time. I could probably cut at least a third of the time off if I had to do it again. They most common response I have read in this forum is the word "WOW" used many times. I must agree.......WOW!!!. It's the only way to describe it. Yes it cost money, but the comparison is not even close. I have a V-nose motorcycle trailer (around 3k pounds loaded) with electric brakes and it stops perfectly. If I over set the controller I can can smoke the tires anytime I wanted to. On my large (around 15k pounds) toy hauler I could never smoke the tires at full voltage no matter how hard I tried. I can smoke them now at 8 volts. Electric brake on a heavy trailer are useless in my opinion. This is a true statement, I can now stop the trailer faster than I can accelerate to 50MPH. Before I could accelerate to 50MPH faster than I could stop the trailer from that speed. Seriously. If you are thinking about doing this conversion and are on the fence because of the cost, I believe in the long run you will not look back and think you made a mistake. Go for it. It's worth it. So glad you listened to everyones advice! Less money spent by a long shot and you now have a vastly improved product!!! Now you can go forth and preach the value of this great mod!

RE: Looking at Excursions...

"Of the ones you listed, the 7.3L TD and the 6.8L V-10 are the "only" 2 that you should even think about" ZACTLY!

RE: 60" Bed Height

Really depends how much pin weight you have. More weight means the truck will sit lower. Hook it up and see how it looks on level ground. The RAM's settle a lot. Ideally the truck will be sitting level with the RV attached and loaded for travel. Like this. http://i.imgur.com/QCGYYlzl.jpg

RE: Does my usage warrant diesel? Cummins 6.7 with AISIN...

Op one last thing to think about. You WILL go to al larger RV in about 3 years and then you WILL wish you had bought the Diesel. I think most on here that have been at this for a while will agree with that.

RE: TT Accident - SWAY

Wow..... I would think by simply letting off the go pedal when the camper started to sway would have prevented this mess. NO that will make it worse! Been there done the same thing hit the brakes and did not get the job done! No F-ing way will I ever again tow a TT unless I have a lot more TV than one would think needed!

RE: Wheel bearing adjustment on DRV

My 07.5 DRV slide bolts were dry as a bone. I talked to Kevin at Kodiak and he swore they all are shipped with grease on the slide bolts. My personal maintenance schedule is remove calipers once a year and lube all mating parts and slide bolts.

RE: Does my usage warrant diesel? Cummins 6.7 with AISIN...

My only concern is which motor will be most reliable in the years to come. IMO the gasser will be the most reliable in the long run with your type of driving. The emission system alone on the gasser is so much simpler than the diesel. The fuel injection system again is so much simpler on a gasser. I'm a bit perplexed because you state you will not have a 68tranny and that's basically what's behind the gasser so why ask these questions? :h And as always take a hard look at the other two manufacturers trucks that are produced on American soil! :W Good luck and choose wisely... Ane ask him while you are at it what is the ONLY Diesel offered in the F650/750, oh yea I heard it was the mighty CUMMINS! Thanks for asking cummins... The 2016 F650/F750 will no longer be equipped with the cummins engine, and now will be equipped with a Ford 6.7 PSD and Ford tranny when choosing the diesel option. This provides better synergy and better overall performance with this pair designed and produced by the same manufacturer. Plus unlike your RAM the F650/F750 manufacturing has been moved from mexico to the USA. Thank you very much... Who cares about any of this? Does anyone here get paid by any of the manufacturers for waving the flag of a certain brand? They don't care about you, they just want your money. I have owned and towed with all of the Big 3, and I would own or tow with any of them tomorrow. In 2015, they all make great trucks that are more than capable of handling most jobs. Brand wars are incredibly stupid, IMO. Why do Americans feel the need to constantly defend their choice and constantly belittle the other guy's choice? It seems to me that when all of the manufacturers produce good products, consumers win, as we have many more choices. Aw you just don't understand! This is just a game, we can sit back scratch our......and argue back and forth. You should try it :B
