RE: 2018 RAM 6.4L Farkles and D vs G

I did the opposite, i went from a 2003 cummins to a new 2017 ram 2500 6.4L, couldnt stand the screaming up hills pulling my trailer so after a year traded it back in on a new 2017 2500 cummins. Its funny, I was so used to my 03 cummins 6speed that the first time i pulled with that hemi it scared the **** out of me. pulling a steep grade for the first time with my trailer and that thing down shifted probably into second and about 4500 rpms, i wasnt ready for that lol. pulled a few more times and that was enough.

RE: Fords new 7.3 Godzilla

Been reading a lot about the new 7.3 gasser from Ford and it certainly looks impressive. People are reporting 15 mpg non towing. New diesels with all the emissions **** are not doing a whole lot better than that and at a cost of $8000 more for the diesel option. That would buy a lot of gasoline. The complexity of the newer diesels have changed my thinking on engines. I run an 05 Ram Cummins and will at some point buy a new vehicle. I raised the hood on a new F350 last week and could not believe how everything is jammed in there. Looks like this push rod V8 from Ford may be a real winner. per the computer im getting between 19-21 non towing in my 17 ram cummins with cruise set around 73 or so. On flat ground of course, probably the same as that 15.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

Im not gonna sit here and argue about it. Have you checked out the wolf creeks? Does your 811 have a slide in it which makes it way heavier? The 850 wolf creek is 2000 dry. Two completly different campers. https://www.broadmoorrv.com/New-Inventory-2020-Northwood-Trailer-Wolf-Creek-850-Northwood-Wolf-Creek-Broadmoor-RV-8242598?ref=list https://www.broadmoorrv.com/New-Inventory-2020-Northwood-Trailer-Campers-811-Northwood-Arctic-Fox-Broadmoor-RV-7577160?ref=list

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

ive got ride rite 5000 bags on my 2017 ram 2500 and my old northland is probably about same weight as that wolfcreek (which i like those campers) and it does fine with that weight and the bags. Check out the 840's to. I like that layout of the 840 versus the 850.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

I just bought a 8ft northland camper a few months ago for my 2017 ram 2500 long bed cummins. Still had to put air bags on it because its so rocky from side to side with those crappy coil springs. I will never by a coil spring truck again. Ist pretty light, probaby around 1800 empty, it hardly squats me but again, the crappy coil springs.

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

I went with firestone ride-rite 2598.

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

Like others have said, if you do go with a camper, get the airbags outside of the coils. I have a ram 2500 with coils and it was rocky as hell before I put the air bags on. I would never buy a coil spring truck again. Works good with my travel trailer with no bags.

RE: Fridge Doesnt work on Propane

Update on this. Took it to local RV place who are very good people and it turned out to be the board on the fridge. Replaced with a new one and good to go.

RE: Fridge Doesnt work on Propane

Yes, everything else that runs on propane works fine. Stove/hot water heater/furnace

Fridge Doesnt work on Propane

Just thought I throw this out to see if anybody has any pointers. I just bought a 1999 northland camper and the fridge works great until in needs to run on propane. The red check light comes on when you switch it to propane or its on auto and you unplug from shore power. Any thoughts on what to look at? looks like theres a couple control boards when you take the outside panel off to look at back of fridge. Thanks

RE: Need Help With 1999 Northland Polar 860 Extended Cab

I know this is old but I just purchased the same camper last week, my fresh water drain line is in the back kind of under the door. Do you happen to know the size of fresh water and black and gray tanks?

RE: Cost of accessories new camper

Not sure what kind of truck you have but i bought the torklift tie downs for my 2017 ram 2500 and installed them myself off of amazon for $600. It was actually pretty easy and bought the happy jack quick release for like $250 off amazon.

RE: Atwood Jacks Question

So you actually have to kind of rewire them for them to work with the gama wireless?

1999 Northland Polar 860 ext.

I just purchased this camper and having a heck of a time finding the specs on it for the water and dump tanks. I have the original paperwork but doesnt say anything. Just putting feelers out there that maybe someone has one or has had one and may know. Thanks

Atwood Jacks Question

I just purchased a 1999 northland 8.5 foot camper. It has electric atwood jacks but they are controlled differently. On one jack in the back there are two switches that extend or return which runs both jacks (one for passenger and one for drivers side) same goes for the front. Is there anyway to make the jacks run off of a remote somehow so I can just run them all at once instead of going back and forth or having someone help me? Possibly something like this? https://www.amazon.com/Atwood-85439/dp/B00R6HKNAM/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_263_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=0CRRK77QPHRC4QV8NRQQ

RE: 2017 Ram 2500- Airbag Question

Ordered them off amazon for 314 and will install my self. What did you order? Hopefully not the bags that go inside the coils. The best option is to install bags that replace the bump stops. I installed Timbrens like IdaD and they have worked extremely well. plus they give you an additional support location between the axle and frame for increased stability. I ordered the right ones for outside of coil.
