RE: 5th wheel hitch

Just off hand I would say that kind of weight does not belong behind a short bed truck. MegaCab Dually? But it would have to be the lightest of pin weights.

RE: Road service

Les Schwab is the only place to buy tires and there are just about everywhere on the west coast. Their service is fantastic:):) That's right! They are up your butt from the time you pull into the parking lot. If you like that part that's great. I want quality work and HONEST people working on my rigs. I can tell you so many stories from people I know including my self it would make you sick. It AINT the same company that Les started. Example below can anyone tell me what is wrong??? http://i.imgur.com/ALYtEzyl.jpg

RE: 2016 RAM Super Ike Gauntlet

We humans can SEE what's in front of us. Let me correct that for you... We humans have the ABILITY to see what's in front of us. Observing other drivers on the road, it is quite apparent that they don't see what is in front of them until they are on top of it... You know those guys, the ones cruising along in the left lane where there are signs for miles alerting to the left lane being closed. They are the morons that drive in the left lane, clip at least one traffic barrel before they realize that the lane is ending, then they usually cut into lane 2 and slam on their brakes, causing a chain reaction behind them... all because they didn't chose to exercise their ABILITY to see what is in front of them... I REALLY miss my air horn for those exact reasons! A little blast will wake their AZZ up. :B

RE: Warning Seattle drivers!

"Oh No,,, let's not talk about the BC drivers, today going south from Mt. Vernon we see the WSP setting on the overpass at Conway, just south a bit at the Starboard Road, there are 5 WSPs with cars on the side, all were BC'ers. The WSP won't stop a BC'er until they are 15 over the 75 MPH limit. that's also is a reckless driving charge, plus the speeding. I'd wager that's close to $1000.00 USD." I have NEVER seen a Canadian pulled over and they DO tend to speed! Nice to hear of it!!! FYI the WA State speed limit along I-5 is 70mph at the most in the Rural areas. Same goes for anywhere else in WA State.

RE: 2016 RAM Super Ike Gauntlet

When descending Ashland pass coming into Oregon on I-5 for example with full EB and TH on I set cruise to 55 and lock out 3rd gear with 33K combined weight and it holds down the pass no problem. I am running in the high 2K rpm range. If I choose 4th it will hold most of the way but will creep up and need to touch the brakes lightly and hit resume on cruise. EXPERIMENT is all I can say. We humans can SEE what's in front of us.

RE: Still can't decide between DRW or SRW?

Buy what you NEED not what will only fit in your garage!And does the OP NEED a dually to tow within the rating? He already has a Dually! It was a general statement for the stubborn SRW guys that buy a BIG RV and don't want to buy the PROPER truck for their RV.

RE: Still can't decide between DRW or SRW?

I love having the stability of the dual wheels on my truck due to the 4200 lbs. of pin weight. Would it be nice to not take up 2 parking spaces at Lowes,, sure would. Does the wife drive my truck...nope. She can and has. I think we can all agree that getting to the destination safely is the best for all. We will always debate what we like best for fun.. Now, if they would only put steel valve stems on the inner tire of the new trucks... :) I look for the last spot and back my outer back tire up on the planter curb. 5,800# pin is rock solid also. I have ZERO issues with the inner valve stem on either of the Dually's I have owned. Proper Air chuck is the trick.

RE: Still can't decide between DRW or SRW?

My BIL drove a ram 3500 DRW as a daily driver (farm/ranch) and just grew tired on getting beat by the rough ride. He now switched to a 2015 Super Duty F350 SRW and is so much happier because of the ride quality. We kept the ram for those special heavy loads but it's not a daily driver anymore. Nice comparison Fish, what year was the RAM?

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch Decision

The B&W Companion for the Ram is rated for 25K with over 6K pin weight. The only difference is the base since the Ram's factory pucks utilize a larger footprint, especially fore to aft, than the Ford or GM factory pucks. However other hitch manufacturers have figured out how to get more than 20K out of their hitches for the Ford. Think B&W would have figured out how to do it as well. When I asked my initial question to B&W, I also inquired about the possibility of a higher rated hitch in the future. Basically was told they have no plans to do so. Just have to wonder why. Their hitch has nothing to do with it. I asked them and they said "we test to the weakest component". Anyone with eyes can see the 20K B&W puck hitch for the Ford and GM's is built at least as strong and no doubt stronger than anything REESE or CURT has to offer that "rates" higher. B&W is VERY Conservative in their ratings. That is why if I were the poster above I would have bought the B&W for his Ford and towed his DRV even if it weighed 21K.

RE: 2016 RAM Super Ike Gauntlet

I ALWAYS use the gear that keeps the RPM's in the high 2,000's going down 6-14 percent grades and use cruise control. Works great!

RE: Toilet: porcelain or plastic?

Over a year fulltiming on our porcelain Dometic. Perfect performance and comfort with the hi-rise seat and elongated bowl. Could have gone with electric push button and all that but simple and well performing is all we want.

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch Decision

I have a new 2016 Chev CC Long Bed Duramax DRW 4WD. I am having trouble deciding which hitch to purchase. I am thinking of purchasing a DRV Mobile Suite 38RSSA with washer & dryer and generator. It has an allowable gross weight of 19,000lbs & maybe 5,000 lbs of pin weight. I was leaning towards the B&W Companion until I read about failures on another forum. It is rated for 20,000 gross weight and 5,000 pin weight. Even the trail saver TS3 is rated for 5,000 pin weight and pricey. I need a hitch that will give a good ride, preferably 25,000 lb. gross weight. Any suggestions? Dude you are spreading the BS from another forum where I said the "failure" was about the crown in some GM beds and what had to be done to the B&W slider to cure the issue that was NOT B&W's issue. Get the B&W puck system for your truck and be happy like the 99.9999999 percent of all B&W owners are!

RE: Ram owners. What gear while towing on highway?

Mine will not shift into 6th in T/H until 65 MPH. So towing the trailer in most cases it stays in 5th without locking out 6th. Chris That's because the Aisin has a mind of it's own!

RE: Ram owners. What gear while towing on highway?

My father has 4.10 and I have the 3.42. He just sets it in T/H and goes 62-65. I will let my truck use 6th on the flats and downhills, but will manually downshift to 5th for hills, and sometimes force it in to 4th for big hills. I do this before it really starts pulling the hill to limit stress and heat. In my experience the Ram transmission logic wants to hold gears way too long, even in T/H. I did the same until I realized I got better overall mileage towing when I locked it 5th. If you do you will be nearly identical to your Father in 6th. Best of both worlds IMHO when towing a fairly heavy RV as in up to 27K combined or so.

RE: Warning Seattle drivers!

The educated idiots spend millions on HOV lanes and do nothing for the regular person not wanting to be in a "sausage mobile" and then they wonder what they are going to do because tax revenue is not enough. AH then they realized if they SELL the use of the lanes a single occupant can use those lanes. What a pile of shite!!!

RE: Warning Seattle drivers!

My solution is to take I405 through Bellevue.405 is simply a parking lot for Ikea. And has there ever been a year half of it was not torn up? I started commuting in 1980 South thru 405 and I-5 from 60 miles North of Seattle and did so until 2012 and some beyond that. 405 since 1980 has ALWAYS had some sort of construction going on. I always took I-5 to get South of Tukwila/Renton. I always started work at 6am and left at 2. Any later and it's a whole different much LONGER commute.
