RE: My 350/3500 is just too big to fit between the lines!

I will say this Fred Meyer?Kroger lot is our go to Store, DW can put our Ram 3500 DRW between the lines, we do tent to hang about a foot or so into the spot behind us so as not to stick out out in the drive.

My 350/3500 is just too big to fit between the lines!

I was waiting for DW to do shopping, and I was with Belle the Beagle in the truck in the Fred Meyer/Kroger parking lot when I watched a guy come in in a loaded large capacity dump truck, he pulled in and acted like he was going to take about six to eight spots to park. Well he was just waiting for a car to move, he swing forward and then backed into two spots, the rig was really long! https://i.imgur.com/dofb4pv.jpg width=640 https://i.imgur.com/yW2KPFL.jpg width=640 It was then I noticed the CC long bed directly in front of me that doesn't seem to be quite as skilled getting their rig between the lines! https://i.imgur.com/442o2hI.jpg width=640

RE: Rails vs pucks vs gooseneck mount

If buying new get the puck system, cost is about the same as a B&W turn over ball. It gives you more options.

RE: "Porpoising" - How to Tame the Rocking Camper

And feeling some weight transfer back n forth once when you hit a big dip or bump in the highway is not porpoising. How about no big dip or bump necessary for the TC to oscillate like a rocking horse. No concrete highway with expansion joints necessary. Just driving down the road. When I DID hit a big dip the cabover slammed into the cab roof. What then IS porpoising? If the TC is securely tied down, and you have decent cab to cab over clearance that is not good at all! Sure sounds like the frame is got some flex going.

RE: NYC - Central Park

Wow! What am I reading?? If anyone thought there was nothing to see in central park, they should have made a post like the op did above to get some help. It's one of the best and most interesting places in all of NYC. Places to see: I suggest starting (or ending) at Columbus Circle. Southwest corner of the park. There is a whole foods where you can pick up a nice prepared lunch for a picnic on the lawns. Carousel* Central Park Zoo The Mall Bethesda Terrace and the singers in the steps area there* Strawberry Fields for John Lennon fans Loeb Boathouse (and The Lake)* The Ramble Belvedere Castle* The Metropolitan Museum of Art* Conservatory Garden *denotes a must see If you didn't think Central Park was amazing, you had no idea where to go. It's probably the best thing in NYC. Burgers: Best high quality burgers and incredibe shakes are at BareBurger. Most popular is Shake Shack. Surprisingly good but simple is Schnipppers. Very nice list, Before retirement work took me to NYC many times starting in 1997. Back then I was several pounds lighter I would run the loop road inside the park (6.2 miles) the park is a lot more than the side that faces 59th it extends to south Harlem. Enjoy your visit to NYC, but also visit the 911 Memorial very moving.

RE: When replacing tow vehicle, do you.....

take out the rails and use on the new vehicle? Or do you replace on the new vehicle? I'm in my first Fifth Wheel and 2500 tow vehicle. Just curious what most people do. At this point in my life, I'm paying someone else to do the installation. Seems you have a new RAM 2500. If it does not have the factory pucks, get them installed. Then you can get a hitch that uses them or a picture frame and use your exist hitch. I use the Demco picture frame as I feel it is better than the Reese/Ram one. Chris X2 One item I was looking for in used TV got it in the 2016 Ram, otherwise I would have done like Chris (AKA Me Again) and bought the kit and installed myself on the truck and not had the rails.

RE: Hauling dirt/rock with bed rails?

Just get a cheap tarp, large enough to cover the entire bed.

RE: 17" wheels on DRW - is it worth replacing them with 19.5"?

My rear axle is rated for 9,700#+, with the 17” at 65. PSI, why go to 19.5’s just to make the ride rougher??

RE: Duramax class action suit

The real winners are those of us smart enough to not buy a newer diesel truck!!!!! Well I for really enjoy the difference in power and comfort going from a 2001 Ram Laramie 2500 CTD, to a 2016 Ram Laramie 3500 DRW, it has a CP3, but will start adding Opti-Lube to the fuel for luberticty.

RE: Portland OR to Milwaukee WI

East out of Portland to Umatilla, OR, US 395 to I-90, US 95 north to Sandpoint,ID Only grade is from the Columbia River bridge toward Tri-cities. It is a very easy climb. Double back on US 95 to I-90. You will have three steep climbs. More to be concerned or at least aware of is the down hill side. Watch your speed shift down, do not ride the brakes! Short climb out of Coeur d'Alene, Big pull east of Kellog at the Montana border, then climb east of Butte, MT. Descent from climb at Butte is the one to watch out for. This is a good plan!

RE: Battery Disconnect switch

Are the easy. To install? I like easy. Yeah, pretty easy, the biggest trouble with mine was researching to find what size ring terminal was needed and then actually finding them at Home Depot. After that it was: disconnect battery, cut the wire, strip wire, install ring terminals, mount switch, reconnect battery. It couldn't be much easier. I got This style. Yep, that is the style I have also, you may need to get some wire also, but very easy.

RE: Ice cream?

Ours keeps ice cream at a great firmness for scooping. We have remote temp monitor and freezer runs about 0 to -5.

RE: Battery Draining...

I do have a disconnect switch. I use it if it won't be used for many weeks, but my old travel trailer would easily make it 1-2 weeks without disconnect. This one is just dead after about 3-4 days. Ill push the rest of the season out of it and consider a new one next spring I guess. Make sure it disconnects every thing! Many factory switches don’t I always disconnect no matter a day or a month!

RE: Which dash cam to buy??

I have a Mini 801, it is mounted between the windshield and rearview mirror. It is very small and not visible from drivers seat, 16 gig micro SD add gives 6 hours of recording in 1 minute clips. Wired to come on when truck is running.

RE: Crash in Australia (tongue weight). Video.

They have their trailers set up so the tongue weight is low. That way they can tow them with the smaller vehicles. You see more trailer crashes from overseas than you do from NA. I don't even believe hey are allowed to use WD hitches? Well the dude was passing the vehicle that shot the video, on a two lane highway, towards the end you see the oncoming traffic.

RE: Anyone towing with a Honda Ridgeline?

Desert Captain, don’t let anyone give you grief about your Ridgeline! DD had a 2006 V6 5,000# tow rating, towed a U-Haul tandem axle enclosed trailer loaded to 4,800#, three adults, two 100#+ dogs and trunk and fourth seat full of stuff, trunk full as was the bed. Towed from Portland, OR to Bolder, CO, I84 out of Oregon through the Blue Mts. There is a section with a 7%+ grade, pulled at 45 mph, other than that trip was a smooth trip NO WDH, No Sway bar, just correct amount of hitch weight drove like a dream.
