RE: New truck...RAM

VERY nice looking truck!!!! I just don't like trying to keep black clean. The RAM is deceiving. I was hauling a friends Allis Chalmers 185 Tractor the other day the load was around 18K combined. I accelerated onto the freeway and the ramp was on an incline and I was 70 easily when entering the freeway. I have the 3:42's also. You will love the truck. I have almost 50K on mine and has been trouble free.

RE: Peninsular 6.5 turbo diesel

I have a 6.5 in my old 86 C20. I bought a long block from GM and they replaced it three times before I had one that the cylinder wall did not break. To GM's credit they did back up their product. I have to say the 6.5 is really not much quieter than my 98 12V. I wish you the best of luck with your project!

RE: Dodge cummins models and reliability

IB will probably be around to help you 'sort it out':)....Truck in my sig is my 3rd Dodge/Ram 6.7 cummins and I've had zero issues with any of them and they are a towing machine....If we can help, give us an idea of what you're trying to find. YEA WHEN THE NUBS ARE STILL ON THE TIRES WHEN YOU TRADE THEM IN THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY PROBLEMS ;)

RE: Dropped Trailer on Bed Rails Today

Sorry for your misfortune, sounds like you are a very careful guy. I had an 18K reese hitch and never felt comfortable with it I now have a B&W and like it very well, although a guy in my camping club also has a B&W and he dropped his trailer on his truck so it can happen to that hitch also. Thanks for posting it keeps all of on our toes The only time I have heard of a B&W drop the guy finally said his friend had locked the handle open.

RE: Mobile Suites towed with short bed Dodge?

With 4,500# pin weight My MS dealer friends say you must be carrying your gold bar collection with you. Your dealer needs to be re-educated....my Landmark has a 4,200 # pin weight...4,500 on a MS is easy to hit! I don't think most people really have a clue what amount of weight is pushing down on their TV. I wish on the gold bars! My wife makes jewelry I would guess she adds 3-400# up front. But most of the heavy items are loaded in my tool box in the truck bed. So yea 4,500# is easy to obtain.

RE: Air ride suspension

Our Mobile Suites came with it. I would use it again along with the TrailAir air bag kingpin.

RE: March sales are in

Good month for ram indeed !! does not mean GM trucks aren't good enough. End of year sales will say that. GMs heavy dutys are just barely out, so those numbers aren't as high now as usual due to many waiting to buy once lots have some inventory. Will like to see the numbers after a few months into GMs HD trucks being out. So come September and the sales are still similar what will you have to say then?

RE: Reese Elite fifth wheel hitch.

Before buying compare the B&W to another hitch side by side. You will pick the B&W.

RE: 17.5 tires

Dropping the pressures is hard on your fuel mileage, the trick is finding the best compromise. Not really. Point is, if using 16" tires, and need 80# to hold the load,then you go to 17.5, you still probably only need about 80# in them to hold the load. NOT the 125# that they are rated for. Putting 80# in the 17.5 will yield same mpg as 80# in 16", and be a softer ride than running them at 125#. And, at 80#, the 17.5 is a stronger, tougher tire carcass. Bingo! We have a winner!

RE: 17.5 tires

RE: Anyone using the Trailair Flex air pin box?

I think this will be a winning combination. I added the Tri/Glide lower jaw and it was an improvement. Felt a little strange but have gotten used to it. The FlexAir should be a winner.

RE: 17.5 tires

Thanks for the responses on the GY G's. Any tire can have a problem. There is a thing called road hazard. That really is not the tires fault. ramburgy what was the date code for the tire that exploded? One bad tire that is great. I have never had a tire problem on a RV. I don't think I should have said that!

RE: 17.5 tires

Everyone with a blowout or tread separation with a GY G614 please state what year this was and the date code. Since 07 the GY G has been very trouble free. So those that keep reporting problems they had but don't tell the whole story make it harder for buyers to make an informed decision. I have NEVER had even a flat tire with a GY E, G or H tire that is one reason I keep buying them and the other reason is they are the only ones that WILL pay for damages. Oh yea I try to buy US Made also.

RE: Sales numbers

Then there is me I will take a Cummins diesel motor over anything in any truck. That's just my opinion though. Everyone enjoy what you have as the big three are making better trucks than ever. I bought my 98 because of the Cummins. Thought the truck would fall apart around the engine. I was so wrong. The truck has been very solid with 380K so far.

RE: 17.5 tires

We had G614's on our Cameo as upgrade from Carriage. They had about 20,000 miles on them, and were 3 years old when one exploded and did $6,500 in damage to our trailer. We were going 55 mph, and the tires had 110 psi. We just had the tires inspected and told they were good. The $6,500 did not include the road service. We did everthing by the book to take care of them, including keeping them covered. Please take my advice, get the 17.5 wheels and tires. Did GY pay for the damages?

RE: best tow vehicle

Test drive all three with an open mind. I am confident you will choose the RAM. Just look what the Hotshot RV haulers drive. Cummins and the Aisin auto are both medium duty. The others are not. Lots of hotshot haulers over on the Dmax forum. Just sayin... I agree. RAM then GM not too far behind then Ford way behind. GM and Ford have swapped places over the last few years.
