RE: Ram 2500 DEF fluid

As already stated, it varies a lot (towing VS not towing), but in general, you will only fill the DEF 1-2x/yr.

RE: New mall crawler!

Congratulations, that’s a nice looking truck. It has more lift than I’d want but the truck is big enough to pull it off without looking silly. I haven’t even put bigger tires on mine because it barely fits in the garage as it is, No way that thing would go in. A BFH will take care of the garage mods for you!!! LMAO

Musical artist has me stumped

Upon going thru my daily news sources, a article popped up about the 45th Anniv of the Edmund Fitzgerald sinking and song by Gordon Lightfoot. I have heard a remake if you will of that song that contains the names of all those on board when she went down at end of it. Now for the life of me I cannot find it. Tried several ways of looking it up via Google, but no luck. When I did hear it, it was on satellite radio and agin, don't recall last time I heard it played, but it was played. Has anyone else heard it? If so, who sang it? TIA.

RE: Tranny overheated

Tho I have a Ford, I'm w/ dodgeguy on changing tranny oil every 25-30k. Likewise, I still drop oil every 5k as well Like DG said, "Oil is cheaper than........" On a side note, this thought came to mind as I was reading the updates and suggestions and all. Why can't mfr's design the software to have the engine fan come on (even tho water temp is ok) if a sensor is telling the computer something is getting hot and to draw more air thru to try and cool things down?

RE: No 3/4 ton trucks.

I've been in the market for a new GM 2500 for the last few weeks and I'm having a hard time even finding a gas one to test drive. The dealers around here are selling them as fast as they come in. I talked to a salesman one day and before I could even get out there the next day the one I was going to look at was sold. One of the dealers told me that there are plenty of them someplace in OH but due to their size they can only ship them 1 or 2 at a time on the haulers which is making deliver very slow. How true that is I don't know but it sounds plausible. If this is the case, perhaps have the salesman your talking to do a dealer search to see where the trucks are at and then call that dealer directly. If several OH dealers have trucks, see where and if all are within a decent proximity to each other, maybe worth a road trip after talking to them. Or you could go another route and use Autotrader, type in what you are looking for within "X" miles (maybe a good idea to go beyond that "X" just to see what's out there) which is essentially what your local dealer is doing.

RE: 2018 F150 LED Tail Lights $$$$

IMO, that's going to be a problem w/ all trucks w/ built in sensors and all. Too much stuff and expensive to fix.

RE: New 5th wheel hitch.

Anderson maybe lighter, but lighter isn't always better. After owning a couple Reese hitches, switched to B&W 3 years ago. Also used Reese brackets on frame, BUT went w/ B&W brackets on truck in sig. Only thing I can say is, WISH I WENT THIS ROUTE SOONER"! The B&W brackets are extremely beefy compared to Reese same w/ the rails on floor of truck compared to Reese. Yes the B&W hitch is heavy, but it's USA made and it's just a great hitch and very simple to use/understand. Another thing w/ B&W is that it has a multitude of adjustments, not just up/down.

RE: No 3/4 ton trucks.

Local multi brand dealer by me used to have a very large supply of HD GM's. Now driving past it looks like just a couple Ram commercial trucks. Still has trucks, but think they are are all pretty much 1/2 tons. HD trucks, well.........

RE: Axle Ratio, new truck

My '15 F350 SWR,cc, 4x4 ,sb, 6.7 had 3.55 gears, 6sp tranny and it ran (I think...frigging CRS!) around 2,000 at 70 mph. The ;17 F350 DWR, cc, 4x4, 6.7, 4.10 gears, 6 sp tranny is at 2100 rpms at 70 mpg. Towing rig in sig, it's getting 8.5-9.0 mpg. It's true the gasser will not get as good as mpg towing as a diesel will, but consider down the road and you want to get a bigger RV. The 4.30 will be better for the whole truck. I like the idea another poster mentioned about considering a used SWR or even a DWR diesel. If sticking w/ Ford, 3.55 w/ the 6 sp and heard that w/ the 10 Spd they are utilizing 3.31 gears. My '17 was an off the lot purchase and came w/ 4.10's. I would have liked to have 3/73's, but overall, happy w/ the 4.10's.

RE: General 5th Wheel Brand Question

The techs where we bought our '06 CC from said few years later that our '06 was better than the new ones (Creek line). When shopping for a new RV our hopes were very high and set on another Creek, but none of their floorpans triggered our fingers as much as one in sig.

RE: Tire pressure?

RVing without the ability to inflate all your tires to the recommended air pressure in a dry campsite isn’t wise. That's why a Via Air Compressor is in basement.

RE: Can this weight be right?!?!

I'd say it is. Our '03 F250 PSD, 4x4, sb, cc 50 gallon Transferflow tank came in at 8500. Then our '15 F350 PSD (same everything else as the '03) was 8700. Finally weighed the '17 few weeks ago after owning it for 2.5 years and it comes in at 9100.

RE: Torque Wrench for WD Hitch nylock nuts

Amazon has 3/4" 600# wrench for about $200. Really not a bad price overall for this tool. If it can be used as a breaker bar as well, then it's 2 tools in one. Highest Ft Lb of TQ I need currently is 165, so I have a Kolbalt TQ wrench which is under seat of truck. 1/2' Battery impact to remove lug nuts from Harbor Freight not too far from TQ wrench.

RE: Found a unicorn

If Dunkin' Donuts has sit down seating, I'll meet up w/ ya at the one on S Bay Road and buy ya a cup of Joe and donut and say Congrats in person and talk trucks/RV's. If not, how about Price Chopper by Lowes?

RE: comfortable ride in an one ton dually??

You could try one of these:Air ride seat I watched the company video, but one thing I didn't see was the seats ability to oscillate. Do you know if it does? Some like it, some don't. In my semi, I like cuz it takes the jarring out of the ride IMO.

RE: Torque Wrench for WD Hitch nylock nuts

Ask folks at a Ryder/Penske shop or the like. If all else fails, Snap-On or MAC tools. How about a semi tire service shop as well.
