RE: Next generation Ram

I'm confused... Sometimes the 68rfe is very capable (even though you installed a after market oil pan) to do the job, and the next time (pending the sales pitch) you have to have a true medium duty transmission to do the job. So which is it? Please advise, fish Words are hard, aren't they fishie/Energizer Bunny? The 68RFE is a great transmission and I have not had a single problem with mine. I've never seen any report of anyone having any issues with it when they keep their truck stock. The only times I have seen transmission issues is when people tune and add more power. That is why I suggested that Ram might have to change transmissions if they plan to bump power much higher with the 6.7 Cummins. It isn't a knock on the transmission at all, just admitting that all things have a limit. Based upon the accounts that I have read, the 68RFE appears to close to its limit for power input. Quit trolling, why are you even commenting on a Ram thread anyways? You have made it abundantly clear that you would never buy a Ram, so your input isn't relevant to the OP's question. He keeps going, and going, and going, and going... Are you forgetting the AISIN?

RE: Black Tank Flush

I do what I call "Sunday Service" every Sunday, never look at the level.

RE: Black Tank Flush

"Till the water runs clear"? - You guys using your black tank for drinking water or what? I drain the tank, give it a 2 minute flush to ensure all the solids are gone and move along so the next guy can dump. It's a holding tank for poo, how clean does it need to be? It's going to get dirty again next use. It's called build up, ever heard of the "POOP PYRAMID" ?

RE: Okay, discuss.

I saw this at a Lowes parking lot yesterday. http://i.imgur.com/GZRemCG.jpg Is it me or does the front cap look considerable wider than the camper? As in wider than 8' 6" ???

RE: Black Tank Flush

I open the valve wait until the flow is low close valve turn on tank flush. Set phone timer for 6-8 minutes place phone in your pocket!!! Pull valve let drain with flush still on wait til draining slow close and repeat. Close valve after water is running slow. Wait one minute then turn off flush. Plenty of water to start with is essential!

RE: Tire Pressure Monitor

My truck has a pressure measuring system but I don't think there is a low pressure alarm. I run GY "H" tires on the RV and would not waste the money on an alarm for them. Reason is the only issue I have ever heard of with that tires is tread separation losing the center belt with NO pressure loss. I have well over 500K running Michelins on my vehicles with ZERO issues so no need for an alarm on those either! That's the way I ROLL.

RE: How to know the actual lenght of Fifth Wheels

Do they go by what the RV is called or actual length? Our 39TKSB3 Mobile Suites measures 41' back cap to front cap. Add the ladder and you are closer to 42'.

RE: New 5th Wheel & New Truck - Running nose high - UGH!!

"If a man didnt want to go that route there is a 3" block under my rear springs on the Dually. Removed and I am now level." If you did remove the block the truck would be riding nose high.

RE: Grease Ram Front 4x4 Drive Shaft

"ALSO at every oil change it is required to lube the outer tie rod ends." Have you been under your truck? There are NO outer tie rod ends that have a grease fitting. The ONLY grease fitting on the current RAM trucks is the front driveline. I think the manual does state lubing the non existent fittings.

RE: Next generation Ram

I'm still excited for the current gen Ram! I do believe that the transmission is the current "weak link" on the HD Ram, keeping them from increasing power output by too much. Honestly though, with the amount of weight that these trucks can move, I don't really see too many more gains to be had in towing ability. I mean, you can haul over 16 TONS with a freaking pickup truck. That is insane to me! When you get into payload ratings, we have to be getting close to the maximum weight per inch of tread here. The fact that Ford can get over 7,000 lbs of rear axle rating on a dually is pretty awesome! I guess I'm looking for better reliability, more gears and better fuel economy. That's just me though. "I do believe that the transmission is the current "weak link" on the HD Ram" What are you talking about??? I towed 28-29K combined with my 11 HO Dually with NO issues with over 1/2 of that towing. Pic is at 65K with at least 50K on the fluid. I tow 33K combined with my 15 RAM Dually with the Aisin trans. True Medium Duty used in many other applications. "The fact that Ford can get over 7,000 lbs of rear axle rating on a dually is pretty awesome! Are you talking carrying capacity? Or RAWR? I would assume Carrying.

So which is it? Please advise, fish If you have read any of my posts both the 68RFE and AISIN are great trans. Towing in the heavier weight weights and higher HP/TQ ratings the AISIN is preferred. I installed an aftermarket pan for more fluid capacity and it did keep the trans cooler than other stock temp reports. The AISIN is amazing with the temps in the low to mid 170's towing 33K combined even on 14 percent grades in June thru the Rockies. AISIN is a true MD trans as it is used by several other manufacturers.

RE: Next generation Ram

It's anyone's guess at this point but I've heard 2019 for the 2500/3500's Yes, I took the cummins Factory tour last summer and one of the design engineers said she was working on the 6.7 for the 2019 model year. 2019 will be Cummins 100 yr anniversary and 30 yr anniversary for Cummins/RAM association. I most likely will be ordering a 19 LongHorn Dually.

RE: Next generation Ram

Just please get rid of that hideous grill. If you are talking about the LIMITED grill I COMPLETELY agree, it's FUGLY!!! This is still their standard grill. The inserts can look different. http://i.imgur.com/nnZJucCl.jpg

RE: Vibrating 5er when doing laundry

Our Whirlpool washer was a 5.0 earthquake, it died and replaced with a quality Bosch. Now the worst is about a 1-2.0. MUCH better!

RE: Undercover Swing Case Tool Box

. http://www.800toolbox.com/5thwheel/5th_wheel_tool_box-5.jpg height=400 Google Image Roy Ken Is that a functional hitch in that truck? I don't see any pin grabbers and it just looks really different. HA, good eye! Looks like about what that Dually can handle. ;) Nice BIG bed height 30" front to back tool box for me. I carry a 5 that I have modified to actually pour fuel, have used it ONCE. I highly advise traveling without a big fuel tank and see if you actually need it. http://i.imgur.com/upc6vofl.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/Q1kphr9l.jpg

RE: Ordered a sleep number bed-Have questions???

At the head of the bed on the platform I drilled two 2" holes that aligned with the hosed coming off the bed at the top edge along it's bottom. If that makes sense! I placed the pump under the bed all the way to the front and added an outlet in a junction box that was under there for the washer. That was on our last DRV. This one I had them add the outlet under the bed. Really is a no brainer once you look at the bed.

RE: Grease Ram Front 4x4 Drive Shaft

Good description whisky river! That's about right except you left out the part where u can't see the fitting so you give a couple squirts of grease to find out it didn't take. Try it again, this time the grease glob falls on your shirt. While wiping it off and moving the shop light for a better look because u kno that d@mn fitting is right there, you smear some grease on the light bulb. It starts smoking. Finally get that stupid needle in the hole but now the light bulb popped and you're in the dark, crawl out change the bulb cause hands are too greesy to use your cell phone flashlight, then forget how many squirts of grease may have made it in there! In reality, on th new trucks, I wouldn't worry about it until you think you've got 10000 miles or more in 4wd. The front driveshaft is just an architectural feature unless running in 4x4. LOL, thanks for the laughs, guys! One thing that has been forgotten is mumbling every cuss word known to man while you search around the garage for another grease gun accessory that you hope will work but deep down know it won't! :B There is a video on the TDR where the guy uses a rigid extension off the grease gun with an angle bent into it then the pointed tip attached to it. Seems to work well. I said screw it a while back and just removed the driveline!

RE: Ram SRW

From talking to people that are in the upper end of the SRW RAW #'s then towing the same RV with a DRV they admitted that the RV pushed the SRW in the corners and another conditions. To be SAFE a person should take the RV's GVWR take 25 percent of that (16K = 4K pin) weigh their TV FULLY loaded fuel/passengers. Now add your RAW to the 4K pin, are you within the RAWR? This is especially for full timers. My RV GVWR is 21K my weight is 23K, my pin is 25 percent at 5,800#. So know your numbers!!!

RE: New 5th Wheel & New Truck - Running nose high - UGH!!

This is a very major reason I will not be buying a 4x4 truck. Just to darn high. This is the last reason I would use to disqualify a 4X4! RAM 2x4 and 4x4 sit about the same since 2013.I can not find one to verify that. In '04 there is a 4-5 inch difference. All you guys that say you need a 4x4 do not live nor travel like I do. I have never been stuck with a 2x4 in snow solo, even when I lived in the Black Hills for 9 years. Just my experience. Having your wife at dust taking the wrong road back to camp that the GPS was directing her to take and the road goes from gravel to sand with her getting stuck in 2wd made it priceless to have 4wd!
