RE: Anyone towing 5er with 6.7 ctd Ram 2500 short bed ???

Your truck should weigh 31-3200 on the rear ,so you should be fine on payload.For your truck get the low profile Andersen as its shorter leaving room for a tool box etc.I had one in our 15 ram dually,absolutely loved it,towed a 17500 lb fiver.There are 4 ways to set it up,very easy to do,i used the B/W TURNOVER BALL.

RE: Adding on board Generator

I POINTED THE vent exhaust out the the open door .IT runs cool with no issues.There is a vent/exhaust kit online for it.I fill it using a milk jug,but do have a 12 volt pump ,just too lazy to use it.I have 250 watt solar as well ,2 550 rolls batt so just run it 4 hrs a day if dry camping to top up.

RE: Adding on board Generator

We have a 14 LM Savannah with the gen prep ,i installed ahonda 3000 eu in the front bay .It easily runs 1 air cond washer dryer at the same time and is very cheap to run,20 hours on a couple of gallons of gas.Yamaha has a 4500 inverter gen in gas that might fit.

RE: Odd Part

I believe its called a SKI.Go to Home depot and get a metal roof flashing,IT will work better than what the mfg is using,been there and done it.

RE: What size of fifth wheel to accomidate my 3/4 truck...

From my experience in BC you cannot exceed your GVWR,I TRIED, NO WAY.You can deregistera 3500 below the 11600 for a srw to use as personal business and pleasure, at 11800 gvwr i was looking at a log book for personal business use exceeding 6 days a month use.

RE: What size of fifth wheel to accomidate my 3/4 truck...

ICBC INS CORP could give you a lot of trouble if you exceed your GVWR AND ARE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT.You are held to that number,no exceptions,been there.

RE: Ram 3500 MPG test

OUR 15 dually with asin and 3:42 pulling a Landmark at approx 17500 at 70 gets worst mileage in 6th at 1650rpm then pulling in 5th at 1975 rpm.Best mileage is keeping it under 70 and 2000 rpm,seems to tow best at 68 with few downshifts
