RE: Duramax is king of the mountain again

The horsepower/torque race is becoming insane. I'm leaning toward a Ram 2500/3500 for my next truck, and the "base" Cummins engine with a measly 370hp/800 torque is way more than my needs will require. Heck, my dad's old 7.3 Powerstroke with just 255/525 does a decent job of pulling 12K, that's really all I need. I towed with a measly 350/800 with a 11 HO Dually. Combined weight 29K with 68RFE AND 3.42's. Truck performed very well. ONLY issue was getting the load rolling on a grade. The Aisin with the same combo would have been flawless.

RE: Costco Golden Arowana luxury vinyl plank flooring

My son used laminate flooring on a flip from Costco. They took a full truck load back. Where the sun hit it buckled. Replaced with Pergo and no problems.

RE: 2012 Ram Exhaust/Engine brake question!

Fwiw, exhaust brakes whether turbo actuated or add on downstream aren't engine brakes. BUT the new Pacbrake Load Leash is!!!! Double up on your exh brake power with a real big rig engine re tarder! If I was running around grossing 30k on my new Ram Dooley I would install one yesterday! This product has been out for years. I have NEVER heard of one person claiming they have one. I towed 33K from WA to SoCal to Indiana back thru the Rockies. My factory system with 4.10's and Aisin handled the load very well. I would think the LoadLeash would be a great product since it's made by PacBrake.

RE: New 5th wheel & now new Tow Vehicle

No pucks, add them! Now get the GM version of this and be happy. No silly color coding no binding when un even just simple solid NO question if you are hitched system. Look at the 1" thick machined jaws, if it looks like pic below and handle is closed and pinned/locked it's hitched no question. Oh if it matters B&W is 100 percent US Made. REESE/CURT not so much, Made in China. http://i.imgur.com/0TKQgN4l.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/Ks2lB1bl.jpg

RE: 2012 Ram Exhaust/Engine brake question!

My 11 with 68RFE and 15 with Aisin both have the up/down rocker with on the shifter. Work great! You people really need to try selecting a gear when descending a grade that puts the rpm's in the high 2K range then hit cruise for the speed that you feel comfortable with. WITH EB and TH FULL on. Tried it and didn't really like it. For one thing, I don't always want full EB when descending a hill and T/H tends to have the EB cycling in order to try and maintain a target speed. For another, having cruise control commanding the throttle when I am going downhill with a big load behind makes me feel uncomfortable. Each to their own. I agree to each his own. But remember the first time you used cruise control and came into a corner? It made you feel like you were speeding up. Experiment is all I can suggest and have a open mind. My combined is only 33k.

RE: Rig destroyed today!

There is always light at the end of the tunnel! NC and Jim's families are a perfect example. Very happy that you both are on the light side of life now.!

RE: B&W Customer Service

I bought a B&W Companion hitch on Craigslist had it two years when the draw down bolt striped called them to buy new one them sent it to me free of charge. That is how DRV used to be but no longer. Hope B&W stays independently owned.

RE: New Duramax Power Specs

Outstanding... Looks like cummins will be sucking hind tit. I hear there's a 2019 update so perhaps there will be more much needed hp for the cummins then. YAWN

RE: New Duramax Power Specs

The trans had to be BEEFED up no doubt!!! That is very impressive for sure and will most likely destroy the new PS since GM in the past has been more conservative in it's ratings. Yea my 33K barely gets over the passes.

RE: B&W Customer Service

My small piston that controls the head side to side movement started to develop a leak. Called B&W she asked for my serial # and 2-3 days later it was in the mail box.

RE: Disc Brakes

I converted last year and would never go back to drums, I used Kodiaks that I gotfrom etrailer. Denny My Dad did the same. He said he wished he did the mod sooner!

RE: 2012 Ram Exhaust/Engine brake question!

Use cruise control descending passes with EB and TH on. Select gear that keeps rpm upper 2k range.

RE: 2012 Ram Exhaust/Engine brake question!

That's all you need to know. Push the button, let off the throttle, exh brake kicks on. Step on the peddle, turbo vanes open back up again. I would add, keep the tow haul on ALL the time also. Keeps line pressures up.

RE: Double towing

FYI it's "triple tow". Also it's not legal in several States. NO - it's (only) called a triple tow in some states, or by some individuals who like the term - and figure it should apply for all 50 states. CA makes it simple: You may only tow one vehicle behind your tow vehicle with a non-commercial class A, B, or C Driver's License. (Pg 29 of the RV handbook) No double or triple tow terms involved. With a Commercial Class A Driver's License - and a doubles endorsement, you may tow two vehicles behind (at least) a one ton truck - with length restrictions, etc. Meet the req's - and you can call it a "double tow", "triple tow", "pulling doubles" - or whatever rings your chimes..:R ~ We are talking RV's here and "triple tow" seems to be what it's called.

RE: 2016 Mobile Suite 38 RSSA Queen vs King Bed

This is a King, if it were a Queen there would be a cabinet on the right to match the left. IMHO Queen is too small! http://i.imgur.com/l3dS4hTl.jpg
