RE: F350, 3500HD, or RAM 3500?

Pick the one that has an engine that has 1/3 less parts that is Medium duty rated and the truck that has it's claims backed up by SAE J2807 independent tests. Oh and also is independently rated to tow a combined load of 37,900#. It will look like this and be available in several trim levels and colors. http://i.imgur.com/Lg1Xy3Xl.jpg

RE: Pulling a 15500 lb 5er

If you want comfort, Dually. A new 3500 RAM would probably be fine but reality is your pin will be closer to 25%.

RE: air bags on truck to prevent porpoising

Sorry but that combo is , well I will hold my tongue! Come on Cummins you ran an 20,000#+ GCVW with your 98! I run at 20,000#, it is close, but a 2500 is a 3500 with weaker springs. Your RV and my old one were no where near as long as 39' and I am sure no where as heavy. "I seem to get porpoising on the trailer" Sounds like too much trailer for the truck. Never anything like that with my 98. I knew I was at my limit.

RE: Pulling a jayco Pinnacle from Los Angeles to Butte Mt

Drove from Rapid City SD to NW WA 1,200 miles in 23 hours recently. Not something I want to do again!

RE: Pulling a jayco Pinnacle from Los Angeles to Butte Mt

8 MPG's really sucks and has to be a gas engined truck being pushed hard for 68 MPG with a large RV behind. Had many gas trucks towing large RV's in our 51 years of RV'ing and know. Our 12,800 lb truck scaled weight 5th wheel loaded to travel behind our Crew cab 4X4 long box Duramax Diesel constantly averages about 13-13.3 MPG towing at 58-60 MPH and we also average about 50 MPH for distance traveled each day. Been that way for a little over 80,000 miles of towing that same RV. Very often, we'll see the same RV rig that we'd met and left the same CG as us and driving much faster than we do, just pulling in to the next CG we stop at night. Talked to so many of them again and hearing them claim we had to be going faster than 60 to keep up with them and get to the same place at the same time within 10-15 minutes but we never do go over 60 and always on cruise control. Long retired and what's the rush anyway? Towing at 60 VS 68 will make a huge difference in mpg. Mt combined load of 29K at 60-62 I will get 9-9.5 and at 68 it will easily drop to 8. A gasser with my load would get 4mpg.

RE: Parts required for Dodge diesel - transmission service

For the money I would go with AMZ/OIL Universal Synthetic ATF. Do a complete fluid exchange. Don't half AZZ the job and change only 1/2 if you are lucky. Adjust the inside and outside bands.

RE: VW to bring a Pickup Truck to the US

All I Have to say to VW is: "good luck with that." :) Yeah, the had better come up with something a darn side better than their last attempt! http://volkshole.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/1981-Caddy-300x199.jpg Bought a 81 Diesel 5 speed brand new 44 mpg. Sold it at 300K.

RE: Pics of new Ram 3500 SRW

I was wondering how they worked that with two cameras. Neat! I've only the one camera in mine (back up) and it shows in the dash where the 8.4 U Connect is located. Nice vehicle. Good for you! I don't like mine too well! Rather have on the big screen for the backup portion and just forget the cargo cam. OP congrats on the new truck. Don't even try the goofy grin will not come off!

RE: Jacking up my fifth wheel

If you have a Mor/Ryde IS, it is a hole different ball game. As to where to jack and how to jack. On my new Mobile Suites it has the MorRyde IS also the level up system that will raise the whole rig. I still will try out the TrailerAid to see how it works if I can't use the leveling system along side of the road.

RE: HD truck tire pressure when empty

What does the placard on your door jamb say to run the tires at? I air mine to what the door placard shows to run them at and I've had zero issues and tires are fine....My door jamb placard for the General Ameritrack tires is 80 psi in the fronts and 65 psi in the rears....empty or loaded.....That's where I keep it and General/Continental agrees... Hate to disagree with my "right side" buddy but those numbers are to support the MAX load the truck is rated for. Your tires will hast longer if you reduce the rear tires to 40-45psi. If you look at the tire/weight inflation charts add 5psi you will be right at 80 and 65. At least you don't run 80 psi on all 6! I agree in the owners manual it says to run the psi recommended at all times on the label. But hitch makers say to do a pull test every time also. Both of those statements are CYA! They don't want to be sued if you had your pressure lower and caused an accident with a big load and have a blowout. They are being so stupid with their ratings the SRW trucks are recommended to run 80 on the rear tires all the time.

RE: HD truck tire pressure when empty

I would run my 98 2500 4X4 at 72 front all the time 45 rear solo 80 rear towing. Rotate about every 15K and easily hit 120K with Michelins. Most people overinflate the rears and under inflate the fronts!

RE: General rule for tire pressure?

I for one want my trailer tires to grab the road as much as possible in hard braking and not skid as they could with overinflation for the LOAD. So Cummins how do you get around the TPMS alert, or do you just ignore when running empty? I don't need to deal wit a TPMS, so not an issue for me to run the correct pressure for the load. All you have to do is step up to a manly man's truck and get the 3500HD DRW. Shows pressures and no alerts!
