RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

So for you guys ... Question: What's the COG of your TC? Answer: I have no idea. It depends on how I load it. Response: That’s strange because it has this sticker that say it’s 47. (or whatever your sticker says) I guess not that far off from me who always says, The COG from the manufactuer of the TC isn’t something that matters. Instead, concern yourself with the actual FAWR and RAWR. Except I don’t try to overload the TC COG term.

RE: bumper MOUNTS front 2020 SuperDuty F350 100% same as 2019?

I’d also go ask at Ford-trucks.com.

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

burningman, I mentioned that the distribution of weight on the front and rear axles can change. That can be measured by going to a scale that records weight by axle. How do you measure effective COG?

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

Valhalla360. think about this ... manufacturers that bother to list COG, list the COG as a number. Got any idea why they don’t just give a range to match what you say changes? I’ll help. It’s because it’s a static measurement. No, it doesn’t change just like the weight/height/width don’t. It’s ok to be wrong, and in this case, you are. If you want to talk about the weight on front axle and weight on rear axle, do that. Just don’t confuse COG with those numbers which will never be known until you stale the truck/TC.

RE: dumping tanks

It does when you have holding tanks 7 ft behind rear axle. Don’t look now but your number is off again. :D. Well, I guess you could say you were talking about a extended length chassis bed.

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

That is exactly what a weight distributing hitch does . If you put a MC on the front or the rear you don't think it would change the axle loads . No it doesn't change the COG of the TC but it does change the COG of the complete rig . Kind of a red herring. A WD hitch is to minimize the impact of the weight you just added to the rear by hooking the trailer up. It would do the same thing if a TC wasn’t even on the truck.

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

COG is still not a thing. No modern camper manufacturer would design a TC where that would be a problem. Sure, you can put a TC made for a long bed on a short one to make COG off, but otherwise, it’s not even worth a consideration. Based on that line of fake numbers, there would be less weight on the rear if the COG is in front of the rear axle. So, all we’d need to do is put a few heavy objects in the front of the rear axle and we could transfer 10% of the weight to the front axle.. Why stop there, just put a few more items in the front and put 20% on the front axle. Seriously?

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

160 lbs won't make much of a difference.

RE: TR: The Road to winning a National Championship

Congratulations and nice pictures. Wish there was a video of the horsemanship.

RE: dumping tanks

Hey, I thought we were trying to come up with the funniest response. I have other things to do than hold my water. :D Besides, if I believed in the nanny state, I would have stayed in WA. Thanks for the beer offer and your address!

RE: dumping tanks

I keep a list of people and locations who dump the grey on the ground because it doesn’t matter. Then, when my grey tank is full I stop by their house and let it rip. Of course, I also publish the locations online because it doesn’t matter. :D

RE: dumping tanks

I can dump at home, but I generally dump as soon as I’m done camping. I don’t see the reason to bring it home. I had the connection added because it was easy to do since the pipe to the septic system was being replaced.

RE: NEWS STORY: Ford/Lance guardrail bridge

I just took mine off for winter driving.. Really, I thought you needed it to snow plow. :D

RE: extra fresh water

I have very large fresh, grey and black water tanks. I’ve never come close to filling up the grey or black on a camping trip. I would find a dump station if I needed one. Grey can do harm, but there.is no sense of me pointing out why. If you care, just do a few reasonable google searches. If you want to be oblivious, I just hope you don’t dump in the areas I like. :D

RE: NEWS STORY: Ford/Lance guardrail bridge

Another reason why he needed 4 wheel drive. joking .... less alcohol probably would have helped. I looked at the video, but they don’t open the hood. My guess is gasoline or 7.3 since I didn’t see the PSD badging.

RE: New tail lights

I don’t have any issues with my tail lights (I did have a bulb burn out once in 13 years, but I also thought I’d check out LEDs if they every went out. Btw, my lights are mounted in a flat piece of aluminum bumper, so no issues if it got wet, the water would just run down out of the way hurting nothing. Those look great.

RE: Extra long towbar instead of supertruss mod?

We are talking here about "extra long tow bar" and that makes it in 48" range. Not sure why the title of the thread says extra long, but the OP says 18 inches in his only message on this thread.

RE: Extra long towbar instead of supertruss mod?

There is big difference between 18" and 48" extensions. The bending forces are 7 times multiplied between the 2 and that's why you need superhitch for long one. Can you explain your math? Also, why does it matter for flat towing?
