RE: Anyone pulling a Montana 3120 with a SRW short bed?

I wouldn't do it. Our Mountaineer is 10K dry, loaded just under 12K. The 05 DRW we had went 11K loaded. Now that was 2800# pin. The rest was stuff in truck, firewood, tools, us & the dog. I'm just not going to watch every pound of stuff I haul around. So that's why when bought the 18 truck it was DRW also.

RE: SE TN trip Last week of March

We went via Nashville last time, is it that much longer going via Lexington? About 50 miles. It's worth it to me to avoid Louisville & Nashville. Watch your speed going up US-411. Several of those towns like to "Welcome You" with their special tourist tax!

RE: US 72 from Memphis to Sevierville, TN

Man hate to hear that, it was a nice park. Stayed there some years back returning from Arkansas.

RE: US 72 from Memphis to Sevierville, TN

2 Things. US-72A from Muscle Shoals AL. thru Decatur AL. is better than US-72 thru Athens. But if you can't get a site at Point Mallard, look at Joe Wheeler SP, it's right off US-72 just outside Rogersville AL. I-24 thru Chattanooga is a mess! Look at taking TN-28/US-127 north from exit 155 Jasper TN. north to Crossville TN. and I-40

RE: Slide out drifts open

Thanks for your reply. I'll try purging air out this weekend. I know it's not an external leak on cylinder because no sign of fluid anywhere. Could be an internal leak. I'll see what happens after I cycle the slides in and out a few times. That's what our was internal on the bedroom. But they both would creep out

RE: Best for service work

Never had any dealings with Integrity Chevrolet. Mountain View Ford (across the street) made me so mad I now take my F-150 company truck to Dalton. Mountain View Chevrolet wouldn't give me a price on a 18 Dmax DRW truck, they just wanted to sell me a leftover 17 2500. Ordered and bought the DRW truck from Walter Jackson Chevrolet here in Ringgold, only place it's been to for service.

RE: Which pick up to buy for towing big fifth wheel?

Since you have the trailer, load it up and weigh it. Then compare the pin weight to the cargo capacity of the truck. Be sure to add all cargo and people that will be in the truck with the weight of the pin. We could run a 350/3500 SRW truck with what we load out, but it would be close. No way we could load to the full 14.4 trailer GVW. The DRW truck makes that or a larger trailer no problem. Ram, Ford, or GM take your pick.

RE: TN in early June and early Sept

What is going to be open will be open in June, and won't close till after September. COVID restrictions in Tennessee have been done at the county level, and I don't see that changing unless it'a forced from the Federal level. As to the Weather, I'll take early June over early September. Early June isn't full hot. And early September has cooled off yet.

RE: DEF Math

two ways 1) my truck gives an initial warning at 30% which even worst case is at least 1,000 miles. Then it continues to count down and give warnings. If I'm dumb enough to ignore the gauge for 1,000 miles I get what I deserve. 2) DEF usage is about 1 gallon of DEF for 100 gallons of diesel. pretty easy to keep track of in my head. 3) If I'm traveling, before I leave I can have a pretty good idea based on last fill how many miles I can go before the 30% warning comes on. If I think I will be close, easy enough to put a 2.5gallon jug in the bed. You need to keep that LML. #1 I've never seen a warning of more than 300 miles. And the mileage given isn't right, it's short 20-25%. And #2 the L5P sucks DEF. The one time I kept track of the fuel for a whole tank of DEF worked out to about 1 gal DEF to 45 gal diesel. That's twice the rate of the LML.

RE: 2019 Duramax Regen

No, factory gauges don't tell you. I have my ScanGage set to display DPF%, so that's how I can tell.

RE: Salt Lake to Albuquerque on a 40 Pusher then to Florida.

The is trip is this week, the plan is to start driving Thursday. So far it looks like the weather will cooperate, if it holds I may stay on I-70 all the way to St. Louis, then work my way south on I-24 picking up I-75 in Chattanooga. Of course I have to be conscious of Atlanta traffic, timing here will be critical. Thank you everyone, you guys have provided lots of insight and details. Go south on I-65 from Nashville to Montgomery. Then US-231 south thru Dothan to I-10. Avoid Chattanooga & Atlanta.

RE: 2018 Chevy 3500HD

Yes, I am looking at the Chevy for future possibilities. We have a TT now, but still consider going back to a 5er. When I bought my 2017 I didn't do as thorough research as I should have. My 2017 (SB, SRW, 4x4) only has 2,300 lbs cargo capacity, which limits the size of a 5er. I believe the Chevy has around 5,500. Mine has a GVWR of 13025, FAWR of 5600 & RAWR of 9375. Cargo rating 4802. 5500 would have to be for a regular cab, and likely a 6.0 gasser

RE: 2018 Chevy 3500HD

L5P engine came out in 17, still in production. The 17-19 models have the 6 speed Alison 3.73 rear gear. 20 & 21 have the 10 speed 3.42 rear gear, new body & chassis. We pull a 12K fifth wheel, truck pulls it without issue. Where the 05 would just maintain speed, the 18 will accelerate. Should pull your 10K TT like it’s not there. We could have gotten a SRW 3500 truck at our weight, but would have been close to max weight with the load we carry. Check the block heater, there was a recall. And some had the cords cut at the dealer before delivery. I never plugged up the 05, don’t expect to plug this one up. You can see it thru the passenger fender well. I would expect the Duramax to use more DEF than your Ram, and the under hood fill is a pain at best. Real pain to fill from jug, I fill at the truck stop. Most hoses will reach, if not go thru the lane the wrong way or backwards. The steering wheel isn’t quite centered to the seat. Bothers some, but to me it’s no biggie. Same with the lack of low speed throttle response. They just don’t jam you back into the seat, but once rolling they will produce plenty of power. Ride isn't bad, but it's a HD truck. You get used to the rear fenders, but it's not my daily driver. (I did drive my 05 DRW every day some, but now have a company F150)
