RE: DRV water intrusion

Oh, so it’s the vanity slide that’s being referred to. I still don’t understand why it would be more prone to leaks than the others but good to know.

RE: 5 liter SUVs and truck capability.

IMHO the GM 5.3L is much better than the Ford 5.4L in terms of serviceability and overall reliability. If you want a Ford go for the newer 5.0L.

RE: DRV water intrusion

One biggie is the bedroom slide that I opted NOT to have. What difference does a bedroom slide make then any other slide. I don’t understand this either. Cummins, can you please elaborate? We are seriously considering a Mobile Suites for our next fiver and would like as much knowledge as possible.

RE: High mile gas engine trucks

I replaced my V10 at 460,000 miles. It was mostly fine still, even had good crosshatching in the cylinders still. But low fuel pressure cause a spark plug to melt and the electrode lodged in a valve seat. I planned on just having the head pulled for reconditioning, but since book labor included R&R of the engine, plus removing the timing chain and head, and was only a little more for a complete factory motor with a 3-year warranty. Still have the original transmission too. Not even touched except a total of 3 filter changes. I'm at 470,000 now. FWIW - over half the miles are towing miles, and typical combined weight was 22,000 and occasionally over 25,000. That’s very impressive!

RE: Ram Sales Increasing

Good for Ram. I’m a former die hard Ford guy and I love my Ram. The Ram/Cummins combo has been the best selling diesel truck in Canada for some time now.

RE: Towing with a 2016 GMC Yukon Denali

The brain trust has already twisted this around.....go figure. One guy talking about max grades and no turbo, blah blah blah. Enough already. Guy has about the most powerful gasser you can buy. And he won't be wondering what the stall grade of his overall gearing and torque converter efficiency is 21% or 31% slope. Nother guy is talking about reducing towing capacity based on subtracting cargo weight from tow cap as if the family is sitting in the trailer while it's going down the road... And now the 4500lb dry weight the OP asked SPECIFiCALLY about is now magically a max trailer rating load of 8100lbs or whatever it was in another post Good grief. New, capable, high $, quality, safe, powerful, SUV pulling a trailer that is (loaded up ready to camp) still 2500lbs below the max tow rating. Hook the trailer up and go camping! Have fun, send pictures, Bon voyage! X2. Don’t overthink this! :B

RE: Recommendations for 30 -32 ft 5th wheel

I’m not sure how old you are willing to go, but a great Canadian manufacturer was General Coach who made Citation Supreme and Corsair Excella fifth wheels. They are very well built with heavy duty frames and running gear and are 4 season units with a complete real winter package. We are on our second General Coach trailer and are very happy with it. Unfortunately they went out of business in 2009 so the newest ones are 10 years old, but we have seen many well kept ones for sale on Kijiji and Craigslist.

RE: ram 2500 and 3500

Why no more 3.42?

RE: F250 PSD vs F150 5.0L towing 9k lbs

I would suspect the diesel had a regen too. I would expect considerably better mileage towing that trailer with a diesel because my Ram is very consistent at 10.5-11 mpg towing my high profile 16k lb fiver (hand calculated).

RE: Noisy injector in GM LLY

I can see these products working with the 6.0L which has injectors actuated by oil pressure, but don’t understand how this would do much with common rail injection. Can you please explain?

RE: Ram CP3 swap

Exactly. It isn’t a problem until it happens to you. I will not give up my truck with the trusty CP3 to play Russian roulette.

RE: From Ram to a Ford

There is no comparison between the Laramie Leather seats and the LongHorn/Limited leather seats. 14 why don't you go buy a Ford so you can have better seats and mirrors. In your opinion! GBuilders, still want to know from YOU what the trim level was on your RAM. I don't know if you're aware of this but, the '19 Longhorn leather is not the same quality as your Longhorn. The new '19 Longhorns leather feels like it's on par with the Laramie leather. And the brown leather is a gawdy pumkin color in which they totally screwed that up. Have you secretly been shopping for a ‘19 Ram? :B For the record, I find my Laramie seats just fine. I just couldn’t bring myself to go for the tacky cowboy interior. Now, the Limited I could go for, much classier!

RE: WI-FI in Canada

Tim Horton's generally has free Wi-Fi as well, and they seem to be most everywhere. But be aware you’ll become hooked on the coffee! :B

RE: 2015 GMC Sierra Denali-catastrophic fuel pump failure

Glad to hear that you are getting it covered under warranty! :B

RE: From Ram to a Ford

I would not hesitate to buy a new RAM because of the new pump. I have not heard of any Ford failures for the last 2-3 model years. YA gots 100k and 5 years of protection. Well then you should just get the Ford with the better mirrors, and that new and improved 6.7. :) Ford does not yet have a trick rear air suspension, that Ron likes.. ZACTLY Bottom line Cummins would not have changed if they thought the pump would not hold up. Good for 30 years and who knows how much mileage in that time? I’m not convinced and is a big part of the reason I have a CP3 equipped truck in my garage. New trucks are way too much money for me to play Russian roulette.....:E Now if you are in a position to trade every 3-4 years then why worry about it; buy whatever fits your bottom the best which presumably would be the massaging seats. :B

RE: From Ram to a Ford

Nice report, thanks for sharing. The new Super Duties are certainly sweet, but I just don’t think I could give up my CP3 equipped Cummins for anything with a CP4 pump. Which we all now know the ram/cummins is equipped with a CP4 pump. Yep, and I won’t be buying a new one of those either! ;)

RE: Will 17" tires be adequate??

I’m really surprised to hear about your V10; we have a bunch of them at my work and they have been bulletproof workhorses. Do you know what happened? I think you’re on the right track with putting a new set of Michelins on your new truck and calling it a day. Go back to the original tire size and will be good to go. I think you will be happy with the GM; they are pretty solid. Is it the 6.0L gas engine?
