RE: Augusta RV - Our first walkthrough

Yes they are a quality unit. I did see several inperfections but overall very nice. I just don't like the soft walls and soft corners. Seem too easy to damage especially the corners. Not sure if the MORryde IS an option but for some reason it's not standard. That is strange in my opinion for a HIGH end unit.

RE: Joining the Diesel world

I use the #2 item listed in this study, feel very good about it 1/4 oz. per gal of fuel. Lubricity study Good ol 2 cycle oil for the pre 07.5's works well. Designed to lubricate and combust.

RE: Anderson Ultimate and 100" wide 5th Wheel

And once again panties in a wad. I have NEVER bashed Andersen Hitches. You will NOT find any post by be bashing that hitch. You posted about purchasing and using an Andersen Hitch I simply posted a link to recent post about damage while using an Andersen Hitch for information. Simple as that. Being informed is not bashing. It allows decision making from knowledge. Good and Bad. Simple as that YOU are the one that took to bashing...not a hitch...but a personal bash at me. You are the one that has continued the personal bashing. As for the Andersen Hitch...it is a simple, novel idea. And has some issues. Saying there aren't is being an ostrich. Hopefully with time this new version of 5th wheel hitch will pan out and known issues will be corrected. Now you know how I feel! I'm just watching from the sidelines on this one.

RE: 6.7 cummins oil/fuel filter where to buy

Use ONLY FleetGuard, MOPAR and Raycor filters. Don't risk your warranty.

RE: 2015 3500 Ram

Thx,guys for the comments,He has backed off that truck,but would it be feasible to change out the gears in the rear ends,if so does anybody got a cost idea,he really likes the truck itself except for the gearing.Thx again. I've read were guys have received quotes from dealers and private shops for gear axle ratio changes, if memory serves me correct, the rear axle was around $2,200 and do not remember the front axle cost, that is if he has 4x4. Search around on the Cummins forum this is where I've seen a few threads discussing axle ratio changes. That would be full retail for both ends of a 4x4. Remember the diff only then has a one year parts warranty. I believe Dave Smith was going to do cummins12V98 2011 for 1500. Chris Yes, $1,550. A great deal but as I have said the truck performed great with the 3.42's towing a combined 29K Just took it easy on grades taking off. Oisin would have cured that small issue!

RE: Anderson Ultimate and 100" wide 5th Wheel

Op you are not the only one who reads these posts there are a lot of people just reading and learning. So if someone gives info you don't like or did not ask for just go to the next response. There is always the BLOCK option that I will never use. EVERYONE has info that can be used.

RE: Anderson Ultimate and 100" wide 5th Wheel

"Its almost comical how the Anderson bashers come out of the wood work as soon as Anderson is mentioned. " It's called information. I thought that's why we are all here. But hey if someone does not like facts or opinions I guess we should silence that person!

RE: SRW traction versus a DRW

The OP wants a 26K lb GVWR MDT and you are offering him a 14K lb LDT? That would be like offering you a Dakota instead of your DRW 3500... Some "THINK" they need a MDT so what's wrong with giving people options? On another thread a guy was leaning Ford and I suggested looking at the RAM's also. He bought a RAM and publicly thanked me.

RE: Joining the Diesel world

And just what is incorrect? It goes against his faith in the church of the blue oval. I like fords. I've owned 8. Still have a lincoln. The CP4 issue in the states is bigger than ford. Before they were ever used on the PSD VW and BMW were having issues with them failing. VW blamed fuel contaminated with unleaded or misfueling. Ford blames water in the fuel. Bosch flat out said their pumps were not designed for fuel as dry as ours can be. The 1000hrs at 500 scar is their number. The pump has been since recieved a wear package to improve life span with our 520 scar spec fuel. This didn't provide enough reassurance to prevent GM from going to a Denso HPFP in the Duramax for 2017. Good post!

RE: Disc Brakes

I would strongly advise to re bleed the brakes after the first 100 miles or less.

RE: Ram Mega Cab

Our 05 sits in our garage for 6 months and 6 month outside in the winter sun of Az. Never waxed it. maybe someday when it gest old I will have the wife tackle the job. chevman I have never waxed our 99 Tahoe, owned it for 10 years at least and sits out all the time in the NW. Still looks great.

RE: One Step Closer

Congratulations and good choice. You would have been happy with any of the diesels, but I think you'll be particularly happy with the Cummins. :B Thanks. I believe that's true about the other brands. The Cummins and engine brake is why got Ram the nod. A tip of the hat to Cummins12V98 for showing me that I needed to test drive more than one brand. You are welcome, I was skeptical when I bought my 98 12V from a Friend. At 360K I sold it to my Son. Same friend turned me on to the B&W hitches and I thank him to this day for steering me in the right direction on both.

RE: Ram Mega Cab

I NEVER ride in the back seat of my truck. I have NEVER been asked to move my seat forward but I do ask if the person behind needs more room. I am 6'-2" so I do have my seat back a bit. I care much more about being able to have my HighwatProducts 30" front to back and bed height tool box. No slider hitch and don't care if it fits in a garage. But it's nice to have choices. People in the market need to look both over before making up their mind. I'm a bit fussy so I DO care if it fits in the garage. Having it in there is MUCH better than sitting out in the elements in any season. My 11 HO Dually sat out in the NW and SW from 9/11 to 3/15 and never was waxed in the 65K I owned it but it looked like new on trade. I would personally never let a garage make my decision. I buy what I need. But like i say nice to have choices! At least you have HIPS!

RE: SRW traction versus a DRW

OP not sure what your rig weighs but I tow 23K with 33K combined with no issues at all. I run full RAWR with factory rear air ride and truck sits just like it does without a load.

RE: SRW traction versus a DRW

Pretty simple throw it in 4 low. If front tire grabbing is a concern get the BD front axle disconnect. With a load on in 2wd I would think the dually would have better traction. Nothing to back it up.

RE: Hate seeing sewer hose being cleaned on site

I always lick my fingers clean after putting away my sewer hose.

RE: Ram recommended tire pressure

I tend to run 80 psi in all my tires not only because that's what the tires want for max load capacity but also because there's a lot less rolling resistance, therefor better mileage. Try lowering your air pressure and pushing your truck across a smooth floor, then try it with them at max pressure and you'll see a "yuge" difference. I don't mean to say everyone else should do that, if a softer ride is more important then by all means run less pressure. That's just why I run mine at max. You can do as you please but proper inflation will give LONGER tire life and BETTER stopping power. I easily made 120K with Michelins on my 98 RAM 4x4 diesel. BFG's easily 100K. 72 front and 45 rear unloaded. Oh yea ride quality!!! I run 35psi rear of my Dually solo and 65 with 10K load, 80 front ALL the time. Ron, we see this come up all the time. Max load at 80 psi, inflate to 80 psi! :S This is most likely the reason many with dually's complain about poor traction in wet and snow. One of these days they might all understand MAX, is not the best! It is best to inflate for the load and adjust the pressure according. You should not put 80 psi in rear dual tires when running empty, consider if your empty rear axle weight is around 3,000# to 3,500# usually one of the tires at 80 psi is rated to carry that load. Inflating a tire to Max air pressure when it is only carrying 1/4 of it's max capacity is over inflating the tire, plain and simple. Do the math, tire capacity at Max pressure, is likely 2,000# to 3,000# more than the rear axle is rated for. http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z467/rhagfo/images_zps099186f1.png width=640 Then they add air bags and run them at 80 and wonder what they can do to improve the ride.
