RE: Tires

Since he did not drop names We have no idea what brand he bought, some people are assuming he paid too much for unknown brand, unknown quality He said "Novello Roadx tires" Personally never heard of them.

RE: Fuel mileage

"What is your typical mileage at say 65 mph on a calm day? Is your Ram mileage meter accurate? Can you change a calibration constant within the DIC to increase the accuracy of the Ram meter?" That was my 2011 RAM HO pulling a Mobile Suites at 29k combined with 3.42 gears. I normally towed at 62 with that ruck and would "AVERAGE" West Coast 9.5mpg. It was fairly accurate at lower mileage and be off plus by .4 mpg at 9.5. No adjustments possible.

RE: DOT Endurance Test for ST Tires NOT same for LT Tires

" people don't ride in trailers." It is very legal to ride in a RV in many States. My wife rode in two of our RV's as her back was killing her.

RE: Fuel mileage

I completed my first trip towing a tandem dually gooseneck with my 2021 F350. 1100 km round trip. Got about 12 mpg one way with the deck empty and 6.9 mpg loaded coming back. (US gallons) Hope you had a headwind and running 70 to get 6.9. There was a stretch where I had a bit of a wind coming at me at about a 45 degree angle .... I was getting just over 5 mpg then. Thankfully most of the trip didn't have much wind. Probably averaged about 65 mph. Yea wind does matter! I was Westbound on Hwy 40 trying to get the HE!! outa OK as it was COLD with a 40mph head wind. One point my fuel economy was 5mpg. https://i.imgur.com/JNjV95Al.jpg

RE: Tires

6 tires ? $2200 is not what I call cheap, about $375 per tire Yes Toyo or Michelin or Bridgestone would be more $$ Poster did not mention tire size 16, 19, 22.5 inch I can get 8R16 235, local $125 per tire, that's Cheap Yes most likely Chinese Toyo 22.5 for the DP were $600 each IIRC, might have been less it was a few years ago He did mention Canadian $$$, EH. Still seems high for no name tires.

RE: How dependable are newer trucks with higher mileage?

Ya never know. Yes I understand there are bad Dealer Service Centers at ALL brands. I also know there are good ones from personal experience. KarMart Chrysler in Burlington, WA along with Crystal Chrysler in Cathedral City, CA are two I have had great experiences with. There is a thing called a Lemon Law, suggest using it if they can't fix your issues. These trucks are easy to diagnose as everything is computer controlled.

RE: Tires

When you say " I got a good price" I hope that doesn't mean you already bought them and now are asking for feedback.

RE: How dependable are newer trucks with higher mileage?

Other than the constant annoying problems, the Ram is great. I just wish it didn't have the constant annoying problems. I don't understand how a truck can be considered great with constant annoying problems or perhaps my expectations are simply too high. Only problem mentioned was a heater. Nice to get some real examples Maybe I don't post the problems because I don't care enough to spew the information on the internet. An Internet forum doesn't fix problems that the dealer can't fix because the manufacture doesn't have a fix, which makes a warranty useless. But, if you want a list: 1. Transmission issues: bucks when pulling a load up a hill. It's next to impossible to document. Initially, it only happened 4 times during a 10 day trip across 5 states and back. Now, it happens frequently but only pulling a heavy load up a hill. 2. AC will not turn on if the outside temperature is too low. For example, if I'm getting baked in the sun driving into it, and it's 68 degrees outside, I cannot turn on the AC because it will not turn on no matter what I do. Documented. 3. Heater has the same issues but it's very random. It could be 25 degrees outside and we could have the heater on high. 15 miles later, it's still blowing cold air. 4. The truck pops whenever the front suspension nears full droop. 5. The first recall (emissions recall, which was required for registration) took two dealer visits to get done. 6. 2nd recall isn't done yet (bed step replacement). Will the 2nd dealer visit fix it? Won't know until I setup another appointment weeks in advance, take it to them, and leave it for ____ days until I hear something. 7. Radio randomly turns off. Have lots of photos of it off, restarting, etc. Not fixed yet. 8. Rust is starting to show thru the paint. Satisfied? A truck is more than a stupid cummins engine. Sounds like you should trade it in on a Ford or GM. IMHO the CUMMINS is not "Stupid". ;)

RE: Excellent video on brake repacking

I use that bearing packing tool that Old-Biscuit has pictured. It works really well, gets a nice even solid pack, and forces out any old grease, that may have been missed. Jerry I have had the similar unit for around 35 years. It works well but i always clean out the old grease first

RE: Locked Out!

Call the Manufacturer. Day late and a dollar short but ALWAYS confirm the locks function BEFORE closing the door. I installed Commercial Door Hardware for 35 years. Just maybe you need to push hard on the door and give it another try? OP found the problem. He was putting the key in the wrong lock. Daylight and sobriety helped. A lot. HA, missed that. Still my advice is solid.

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

Never bought **** tools and I was a Commercial Construction Superintendent. Far better to buy quality.

RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

"What I do not understand is why don't people just buy the right truck to carry and pull the trailer." HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

I'm nose high with headlights in the oncoming traffic's windshields. I get a lot of flicking lights at night because they think I have my high beams on. Okay, I decided to go ahead with the heavier springs. If she still sags I'll install air bags. I'm told they ride good, since the heavy-duty part is at the bottom of the springs. Thanks. IMHO you should add air bags and run the truck "LEVEL".

RE: Raising our 5er

Take the entire set up to Sergio at Morryde and have them put the IS on ! They will make sure your truck and trailer are 100% level before leaving.. AND you will have arguably the best suspension on that fiver.... YA mean like this??? https://i.imgur.com/pfqHVWNl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/5hjOq4Kl.jpg
