RE: love the truck hate the ride

I didn't mention the truck I'm interested in is a reg cab dually. Crew cabs ride better due to a longer wheel base.

love the truck hate the ride

I think a lot of us have seen that phrase more than once. Is there an air seat out there in the commercial market that worked for you or another solution that works as well or better. Thanks for your help.

50 amp in a 30

If I plug into 30 amp service at the RV Park, what can I run. Obviously, I wouldn't attempt to run both a/c's, but if I can get by with one, the park would be convenient for us. Thanks.

RE: Wildcat 5th wheel

You can also check on Tweeties. https://tweetys.com/ I also saw covers on Amazon for Dometic and Coleman for around $22.00

cost of Morryde suspension.

The suspension hardware on my 34ft, 9000lb 5th wheel look flimsily built and we travel extensively throughout the lower 48's. I'd like to have the MorRyde Cre 3000 installed. Can anyone give me an idea of the total cost including installation. Thanks.

Changed the rear springs

(My 2018 diesel Ram 4x4 2500 has coil springs front and back. I'm overloaded on my 5th wheel (2000lb hitch weight) and total GVWR by 800 lbs after everything is loaded up for travel. My local spring guy claims a heavier duty coil spring upgrade would solve the overload problem, since everything else on the 2500 is heavy duty. I would like to know if anyone else did the same to their similar truck and recommend it. Thanks.) That was my last post. Today, I got my truck back from the local spring shop with new heavier duty rear springs. They ride great, if not better than the worn in originals. The next thing is to test the load from the fiver, but have to wait for some snow and ice to melt in the storage lot. Hopefully, the lights in the faces of oncoming traffic will be fixed. If not, then I'll have to install a pair of airbags.

ram 2500 vs 3500

Was wondering what, besides the suspension, is the difference between a Ram 3500 and 2500 i.e.; brakes, axles and are bearing loads in both trucks the same? Do both have the same frame?

RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

(Somethings not right with your numbers) I weighed my rig at a truck scale for all axles. I'm over 800lbs. Wife, hitch weight and anything you add up front of the 5th wheel which includes storage, batteries, propane and what ever is in the front wardrobe and under the bed storage, adds a percentage to weight transferred to the hitch weight on the bed of the truck. I think you should get your rig weighed again for all axles for a real world weight.

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.

1 ton ride quality

For those who have the air suspension option in the Ram 3500, does it improve ride quality when empty?

RE: Gray tank cleaner

Bleach. But be careful not to mix it with commercial additives. I put bleach in the traps occasionally to keep out odors. Nothing else.

Anyone know of a campground anywhere in Florida with six on and six storage on same site?

six and six in florida

Anyone know of a campground anywhere in Florida with six on and six storage on same site? We are people of means and would like something affordable, like around 4-500 a month. Thanks for your help.

RE: Western US Itinerary Help

I would stay west of the Tetons. Sure to get snow this time of the year.

calling all weight police

I know I'm over on the hitch weight, but not sure by how much. My truck is a 2018 Ram 2500, diesel, 4X4 Crew Cab. At the scale with the 5th wheel trailer attached, the steering axle was 4820 lbs. The drive axle weighed 5660. Trailer weighs 8260 for a total of 18740. The truck weighs around 6800 lbs. If I add the hitch and drive axle weights and subtract the weight of the truck alone, I come up 3680 or about 880 lbs over on the hitch weight. Is my math right?

RE: aluminum flat bed

Farmer's needs are different from RV'er'a. My 5th wheel trailer was made to pull with a short bed. It has cutouts on the corners of the front cap to avoid hitting them on tight turns. I would opt to eliminate the rear window guards that come with the flat bed.

aluminum flat bed

I'm considering an aluminum flatbed for my Ram 2500 short-bed crewcab truck. The truck is too high to tow a Grand design 1/2 ton towable 5th wheel, so by putting in a flatbed I won't have to worry about the truck rails getting in the way. Has anyone else considered this option?
