RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

I’m running ARP head studs on my 5.9. This is necessary due to the increase pressures associated with the 150 hp gain. I don’t run at max because I don’t have to. If the 5.9 were stock, it would be running at max, all the time and something will certainly break. Good driving skill, and Good understanding Of how your engine uses horsepower and torque is the key to longevity and worry free towing. Anything other than that is abusing your equipment and it is going to fail. If those modifications are not your thing, get a newer tow vehicle with worry free mechanicals. I’m fortunate to have both worlds.

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

Had my 99 2500 over a 7 mile 3500’ pass (6% I think). Trailer is a 16k bighorn. 5.9 had a power puck, 100 hp injectors, 4” turbo back, upgraded cooling, pack brake, And built 47re and 4:10’s. 55 mph, l/o overdrive, 1900 rpm 1ooo-1100* f on egt’s. 1/4 throttle all the way over. Never even bogged down. On flat ground tow at 65, 16 mpg. Ran really good.

RE: Lp stove not percolating coffee

Chances are the inside stove is a low pressure and outside is a higher pressure appliance. This results in lower and higher BTU output. Answer for inside Is a smaller percolator, or just heat it on the outside stove. This is normal for most RV’s. Probably not a plug or restriction. If you have even flame inside, with proper even flame color, you burners are fine.

RE: RV roof collapse covered by insurance?

See if your homeowners policy will cover all or partial. I have a million $ umbrella on mine. It will cover it.

RE: Rig for two couples?

I have a bighorn traveler. It is 42’ and about 450’ of total living space. There is an apartment, although small, it has a double sofa bed And will sleep 2. The extra plus, is the living area is large and open. The bathroom is separate from the front suit bedroom so there is appropriate separation for couples. If kids are involved, there is a large loft so that will sleep 4 kids comfortably. https://i.imgur.com/mX4cjUTl.jpg

RE: PullRite Hitch For 2020 Chevy

I don’t think they make an automatic slider.

RE: PullRite Hitch For 2020 Chevy

Superglide makes the recessed hitch mounts for your truck. It’s pricey but it’s doable.

RE: New Truck 4x4 or 4x2 ??

What I wish I could have over a 4X4 is a locking diff. All that weight over locked DRW has to make a huge difference over power to one rear wheel & a lightly loaded front wheel. Look to an ARB locker. ArbUSA.com. It is selectable and very reliable. Cost about a grand and you get some on board air, unless you already have air, then it’s a bit cheaper. There are some E-lockers too if you didn’t want the air.

RE: New Truck 4x4 or 4x2 ??

I use the low range box on my 3500 every time the 5’er goes in or out of my property. 10-12% 1/4 mile grade on a private road, and steep rise on my docking pad and slight grade in a turn on gravel road for a turnaround. 4wd not necessary but the low gear box is really nice to have. All considered, it comes down to wants and needs. The extra equipment it a nice to have. Therefore, value is in the eye of the beholder.

RE: 2008 Jayco Eagle Super Lite power awning problem

I would think the switch, or a leg of it is shorted to ground.

RE: 5th wheel hitch lift

https://i.imgur.com/Bc0oPCXl.jpg I built this to handle the 300 lbs my Superglide presented. 2500 lbs 12v ATV winch ($50 HF) few pieces of 1/8 plate, 1” pipe, 1 1/4 pipe, small flat bar and made my own hitch pin and a couple of pullies. Have less than $100 buck in it and works great.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

Fj12, I chose a CCSB pull truck for the shorter wheelbase and overall preference. The puck system in the Ram leaves less than 20” behind the cab. Leaves little room for an aux. tank much less a weather tight box. True. If I could carry 100 gallons, I could eliminate fuel stops while pulling. Thanks for the thought nonetheless.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

I know I should, but sort of feel like a dope doing it. And, I know I would feel even dumber getting in a bind at an island, or worse having an accident. So, ya the answer is simple.......

RE: Heartland Bighorn 32 GK Traveler reviews?

I have a 2018 Bighorn Traveler 39MB. Not the Montana but, I could certainly live in it. All of my issues have been assembly quality issues. The materials like floors, cabinets fixtures and structure have all been fine since September of 2017 when I bought it. No issues with plumbing, (except the lack of drain seals in the shower, again assembly issue) electrical, or gas, appliances, slides, fixtures have all been good. As with anything, constant maintenance is key. Good luck on the search. Hope it is helpful......

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

I have the hardest time finding appropriate fuel stations in CA. I’m pulling a 42’ Bighorn with my ‘18 Ram CCSB SWR. I have 13’ of trailer behind the tandems and rear end swing is a lot. Pulled into one station on a trip, had to back out. Followed a billboard to one that said RV friendly, ya not. Had to take a double stab to get to the pump and had to repeat it to get out only to find they didn’t have diesel. One I stopped at, I luckily opted for an outside pump because you couldn’t tell the distance of the store front from the entrance to the pumps. Then, the rear end swing was crucial on my way out. Fueling is a stress for me, and I drive commercially (sometimes). Never a problem in a big rig because rigs only fuel on the highway at actual truck stops. RV’s are in the grey. Not really a big rig, certainly not a passenger vehicle so it is easy to get trapped into a stressful position. It really is a **** shoot. Plus, going some places we take out rigs, tend to be small and compacted little towns in the forest not really built to serve our vehicles. I would love for my copilot to be able to research fuel stops on the road, but that’s not in the cards. So, some stops are left to skill and chance, some are done when the 5er is docked and some are just plain necessity after running out of options. It would be cool if the highway signs indicated RV accessible, but hey, where would the adventure be if that happened.

RE: AC easy start.

As stated, it will start and run. The two stage way is better than the whole draw. But the 2200 is going to run at the highest point on its spectrum and will over tax the generator. I would suspect you could run it to damage in an hour or two, if that. Get a 3 or 4 k generator to do this. A second 2200i will set you back $1,000-1,200. And you get 4400 with options. A broken 2200i will just cost you the same and leave you without.

RE: AC easy start.

It will run it with a high start capacitor but with the 2200 it is at the top end of its capability and would not recommend that. That generator will not last long because it is over working. I have a Coleman Mach 8 15,000 btu with a high start capacitor. Runs hard with the 2200, perfect with a second in tandem.

RE: seal pulling out?

Mine came out running down the highway in 100 degree weather. Fixed mine with flex seal adhesive. RTV silicone would work nicely too. Been good since.

RE: riding nose high

This seems like a duplicate post to “Ram too High” post. As I said in the other post, you should have an alternate ride height option n your Ram. My 3500 has the option. I figure it is standard with air ride.
