RE: Question about unit stabilization

I have a 39 ft Cougar 5th wheel that we just brought home. After unhooking it from the truck, chocked the wheels and let the auto leveling system do it's job. There is absolutely zero movement front to back or laterally.

RE: Alternatives for Michelin XPS Ribs?

Why even look at cheap alternatives? Tires on my truck or RV are not anything I would skimp on, too much at risk.

RE: fuel additives

To Devo the dog. Your post show exactly what I said about fuel gelling in extreme temps. Maybe you should work on your reading comprehension.

RE: fuel additives

Your fuel may meet the standard, you don't know. I have yet to see any diesel pumps that show the cetane rating anywhere. Using additives because your fuel "may" not meet standards? Nuts! Bigfoot "may" exist but probably not. ShinerBock-From your own cut and paste article. "Cummins® engines are designed, developed, rated, and built to operate on commercially available diesel fuel as listed in Table 1: Cummins Inc. Required Diesel Fuel Specifications; therefore, it is not our policy to recommend fuel additives.therefore, it is not our policy to recommend fuel additives. In certain situations, when available fuels are of poor quality or problems exist which are peculiar to certain operations, additives can be used. However, Cummins Inc. recommends consultation with the fuel supplier or Cummins Inc. Service Engineering Department prior to the use of fuel additives.

RE: fuel additives

Not me, but I've never used that kind of stuff on anything. It's always just seemed like a waste of money. There are no owners manuals that make any mention of using additives of any kind. The only time an additive may be helpful is in extremely cold climates to prevent fuel gelling. People who use additive use them because the BELIEVE it is helpful. As long as the do not cause damage I guess there is no harm in wasting those $$.

New wallpaper

Have any of you ever replaced the wall paper in your rv or travel paper? Our trailer is a 1997 and the wallpaper is starting to peel off at the top of some of the walls. Any suggestions?

RE: Super spring

:SI thought it was: You can only tow a 5er with a Kenworth :S

RE: New fifth wheel update

Congrats on the new 5er! We hope to join the ranks of 5th wheel owners very soon as well.

RE: Super spring

Thanks to everyone that offer good advice putting Timbren on should help with sagging. I had a Chevy 1/2 ton since 2013 with max trailing package with super springs putting a 5th wheel never had any problems. Yes, there are so many people here just waiting to jump on somebody to tell them what they can and can't do. You can't tow a 5er with a half ton. You can't tow a 5er with a 2500. You can't tow a 5er with a single rear wheel 2500. You MUST only tow a 5er with a 3500 dually. :h Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the weight police circling like sharks ready to attack. ;)

RE: 5th wheel or gooseneck?

What do you guys think about the Anderson hitch with the kingpin coupler? Seems like it would put no more strain than a traditional 5th wheel hitch on the frame of the 5er. I like the fact that it only weighs 40-45lbs and is easily removed when not needed.

5th wheel or gooseneck?

Do you guys have any preference for one or the other and why? Exploring my options for our future 5er.

RE: First Tow with 2500 Ram

Congrats on your great experience with your CTD. I also had a great first towing experience when we got our 2017 CTD. I use the EB all the time when towing and also T/H mode. I set the CC at 65mpg and let the truck do it's thing. It maintains the speed whether going uphill or downhill with ZERO input from me and even in the mountainous west.

RE: Operational problems with new diesel pickups

I think you will be vary happy with your new truck. Most of the problems you read about on truck forums are GREATLY exaggerated. People generally don't go to truck forums and tell us how great they are. When diesels were first made to use DEF there were problems but they have long since been worked out.

RE: Whats Your Real Weights? Truck and Trailer. The Real Deal

As a unofficial member of what is referred to as the weight police, please keep in mind that this is an educational forum. We are not going to jump out and arrest you. Having spent more than 20 years as a weight and balance specialist (ACFT Loadmaster) I have more understanding than most. I have operated under various rules running from peace time "take no chances- be safe", to combat, "just get it there, and try not to break anything." After you post, read the comments and make the decision that take the various opinions into account. Its your life. Unfortunately our decisions sometimes put others at risk. Regards Bill Yup, you're the one I was referring to. I guess you just couldn't help yourself. :h I asked a simple question of those that tow with a 2500. There are many example of 5ers being towed with 3/4 ton trucks over in the picture section of the 5th wheel forum.

RE: Truly towable with 1/2 ton?

Even some 3/4 ton trucks pulling a "1/2" rated 5th wheel have their hands full in certain situations with that trailer. It may pull it on a flat road with a cooler ambient temperature but when you hit the mountains, the whole situation changes. The real world and the salesperson's/manufacturer world is certainly different. You may have the power for a while to pull a 5th wheel but I would say on long grades in the summer, the world changes as well as trying to stop the trailer going down a long grade. Be very cautious when you pull the trigger on both units. Been there, done that. Curly Really? Do 5th wheels no longer have brakes? When properly set up there should be no difference in stopping with or without the trailer.

RE: Whats Your Real Weights? Truck and Trailer. The Real Deal

I'm wondering how many of you tow one with a 2500? My wife and I are looking to buy a 5er to tow with our 2017 Ram CTD 2500. Before the payload police start preaching, I don't want to hear it. The 2500 is what we have so we'll have to make it work. We are NOT going to go out and buy a 3500.
