RE: Required hitch for 6 3/4' bed

LongBed cures all issues.

RE: Buying 2019 RAM 3500 DRW - discount expectations?

You should be able to negotiate at least 20% off a 2019 at this point. Remember, that in most states if you own it at the first of the year, you must pay prop tax on it. If you buy it on Jan 2 -- at least in Missouri - you don't pay prop tax on it for that year. So a 2019 83k LongHorn list with 20% off at 66k is that what you are saying??? If so get me that deal I will give you $1,000. I’m waiting..........

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

I get a "kick" out of people saying a CURT hitch or wrong tire inflation has nothing to do with chucking.

RE: Required hitch for 6 3/4' bed

I just traded my 8' long bed truck and bought one with a 6 3/4' bed. Can I use the same hitch or do I need s sliding hitch? I have to ask why go backwards? Also why not ask that question before buying a short bed truck?

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

FACT, ANDERSEN will give fore and aft movement even with proper torque. FACT, they deflect the lighter gauge beds of modern vehicles with the fore and aft pressures of the 5er.

RE: Auto leveling airbag system??? How important is this?

I recently test-drove two 3500 duallies, one without the auto leveling air suspension system, and one with. Though the roads driven were different, between the two test drives, it did seem to me that the one with the air suspension did ride a little bit more softly. Rather than have to, potentially, get involved with adding on aftermarket air systems, I've decided to go with the factory air suspension system. Good call, you will be more than impressed!!! Run 35psi unloaded and what your load dictates when towing. Leave it in aLT Ride Mode ALL the time. Lower entry/exit, great ride and no messing around later with bags or?????

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

"I live in a place that has the highest gas prices in North America but relatively cheap electricity. I am seriously considering a PHEV as my next vehicle." YEA but think about all the Salmon you will be killing. Why? the two main salmon rivers are the Skeena and Fraser. They don't now, nor will they ever have dams on them. BC gets about 90% of its power from hydroelectric-from the Columbia and Peace rivers. The BC power from the Columbia doesn't harm any salmon- because the dams downstream in the states take care of that... all joking aside, it's too bad we can't (or won't) develop hydroelectric technology that allows for fish passage. Hydro power is literally solar energy. I have been to the Bonneville Dam in the Columbia Gorge. They have fish ladders for the fish to get around the dam. They do but you really think they all get thru???? NOT hardly. Why do you think the GREENIES that push Electric cars want the Dams removed? They claim the Dams KILL Salmon.

Where do you think your power comes from in the NW??? Dams, they KILL Salmon. EVIL Coal, Natural Gas or GOD forbid Nuclear!!! No free ride and they are NOT Clean Green as many want to push.

RE: Buying 2019 RAM 3500 DRW - discount expectations?

you guys that pay almost sticker I laugh at. 65k out the door is a good deal for me if the dealer wants it gone. I,m not paying any more than I have too. worked in auto sales for 6yrs they can come down a whole lot more than you think. this money off invoice is a selling point for them. not the price they really paid for the auto.so go laugh all you want been there paid less. Haha, you're so full of chit! Almost $86k sticker, you say they'll come down 20 grand + TTL and whatever else, so more than $25k off sticker price? (You said out the door, not me) I'm shopping for a new truck. You find me a 30% off MSRP Bighorn megacab 3500, either trans (cause that's what I want), any color but p*ssy pink for 30% off, I'll buy it tomorrow and give you $1000 for your time. Heck, make it $2k and I'm serious. Reminds me of a guy recently towing a MobileSuites with a F350 DRW at 70-75mph claiming 13mpg average. I say "Barbra Streisand"

That's actually a good price. Counter then with throw in a 7 year a 120k Chrysler MaxCare warranty.

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

Load RV to full as you would normally do. Fill truck furl and any other items you would place in the truck or bed. Bring wife kids etc. Hit the scales. Weigh front & Rear TV axles then weigh both RV axles, if your RV is nose high for example weigh each axle to see how much extra weight is on the rear RV axle. Get your ticket and let them know you want a re weigh. Go to the far end of the parking area so you don't pizz off the truckers and unhitch the RV. Go back and weigh both of the TV axles. Now you have all the info you need for tire inflation. You will see if you are adding or removing weight from front TV axle. Subtract the unloaded TV rear axle weight from the loaded, that is your pin weight. Add the pin weight to the RV axle weight that is your RV's weight. Determine what percentage the pin weight is of the total RV weight. 20% is a minimum.

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

I am running the recommended tire pressures according to the sticker in the door jam: 60psi front and 75psi rear cold. LT265/60R20E I have rechecked the torque on hitch bolts and it has not changed since installed. Thanks, but you need to simply look up what that amount of weight the tire supports at that 75psi. That recommendation is based on your RAWR. Until you know your actual loaded weight you have no idea if you are just right or overinflated. I am willing to bet you have WAYYYYY too much air in your rear tires! 35 psi---40 psi---45 psi----50 psi----55 psi----60 psi---65 psi---70 psi---75 psi 1825 lbs 2000 lbs 2175 lbs 2335 lbs 2500 lbs 2660 lbs 2835 lbs 2960 lbs 3110 lbs So do you think your light weight RV could cause your rear axle weight to be 6,220# ??? A trip to your local CAT scales will tell the tale.

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

Just keep repeating to yourself - "Wow this tow so much better than a travel trailer" I'll try....but I have to admit that even though this 5th Wheel is a lot nicer rig than my last TT, it doesn't tow nearly as nice as the TT did. You are asking for help, I asked what air pressure you are running in your rear tires??? Tire size would be helpful with load range.

RE: Lippert shock absorber replacement options

Ok Cummins about to install the number on the old is 122108. The Munroe number 5550001 seems to be about 1/2 inch longer compressed. Might this be a problem? Monroe has a chart showing connection types and compressed/extended lengths. I doubt it would matter but check specs to be sure.

RE: Ram box on short bed - ill-advised for towing a 5th wheel?

"Yeah - with a 43' 5er, and traveling all over the country all the time, you'd best stick with a long bed dually - at MINIMUM. Actually, you'd really be better off with a SportChassis, given a rig that huge and heavy. For myself... I'll never want to haul more 5er than a 35'. And even that is a pretty huge beast to pull behind a pickup truck." You simply don't understand the capabilities of the modern 3500 DRW. My DRV is 41' and 24k. I also tow a MC trailer behind. ZERO difference in current combo compared to last 36' DRV.

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

What rear tire air pressure are you running? The ANDERSEN it's self will not cause chucking but if it's NOT properly torqued down to the bed it can add to the equation. I HIGHLY advise adding fillers under each corner of the hitch to fill the void between top of bed corrugation and bed bottom. This will help with the fore and aft movement. If you don't have shocks on your RV add them!

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

What hitch are you using? Are you airing your tires based on your actual weights?

RE: Adding air bags: can that increase payload capacity?

OP simply order the exact truck you want.
