RE: Thor or Forest River - Warranty and reputation

I like forest river products personally. As far as the warranty experience, I have never had a claim denied. I had what appear to be a bolt sticking up under the linoleum on a class C I owned. It apparently came loose. It was out of warranty by well over a year or two, but the dealer got FR to cover it under warranty. They removed the linoleum, tightened the bolt, and replaced the linoleum with new.

RE: How often..

How often do you replace your trailer tires? ROFLMAO..... never saw this question asked before..... Did a new rvnet member steal your handle or are you just pulling our leg here?? But at least it was a very vague, ambiguous question sure to stir up a bunch of useless fodder and you can pick the “right” answer to support your own opinion! Judging by all the other responses except yours, it appears that this thread isn't just "useless fodder". Seems to be moving right along similar to an earlier fuel mileage thread where only the OP's information is correct and everyone else is just wrong.

RE: Fuelly mileage of the big three diesels

Any chance we can get back to the topic and have owners report what mpg's they are getting in their diesel trucks? We all know the arguments for and against, now post some real time mpg's. You know that's not going to happen. When someone posts their opinions on a forum, they are right and everyone else is wrong. If anyone else thinks they are not wrong....prove it.

RE: 2019+ RAM HD with failed CP4-2 IP to get CP3's

Chrysler has nothing to do with your trailer being towed. Best is to schedule both tows yourself and get reimbursed. I totally understand that Chrysler roadside assistance doesn't cover towing my travel trailer. It would have been a nice touch for them to do so on a 4 month old vehicle, but not expected. They offered to set up the tow for a non refundable $220.00. I paid them over the phone by credit card. at that point, yes, Chrysler does have something to do with towing my trailer. The problem is, no one ever showed up to pick it up. They told me it was non refundable, but they did credit my account when I called to tell them no one showed up. I guess it was the least they could do.

RE: 2019+ RAM HD with failed CP4-2 IP to get CP3's

Ram, unlike Ford, is making things right!!!! Please let me know what RAM is doing to make things right. I have a 2019 with the CP4.2 fuel pump. No issues and love the truck just would like to know what you know in case I ever have trouble with the CP4.2 pump so I know what to expect. One reason I bought the RAM over the Ford was CP3 fuel pump but then found out a couple of days after I bought it that RAM was now using the CP4.2 pump too. Not that it would have made much difference anyway I guess. Please provide any info that you have just in case. Thanks, I can provide info on what Ram is doing, "just in case." The answer is NOTHING. My 2019 injector pump failed at 15k miles. Left me on the side of the road 2 hours from home. They towed it to the nearest shop. The truck that is. That's about the extent of it. I had to pay for them to tow my travel trailer. Once I paid Chrysler for them to arrange the trailer tow, no one showed up to get it. I had to end up making my own arrangements to get it home. It took them about a week and a half before they finally figured out what happened. When they figured it out, they told me that the pump was on backorder due to the corona virus shutdown. I was going to have to wait 4 months until the parts were available. They approved a rental vehicle, but I was told that due to the coronavirus, they couldn't do that either. I escalated the claim internally at FCA. They pretty much de-escalated it back down to the case manager. This means that they weren't going to buy it back or replace it. The only choice I was left with (I needed a vehicle) was to trade the 4 month old truck in at the dealership where it sat. They didn't have a good selection of vehicles (also probably due to the coronavirus) but did have a 3500 on order that was similar in options to my 2500. I ended up buying that one. If there was an option to trade it to another manufacturer's dealership, I would have, and never purchase another Chrysler product. It's kind of hard to trade a vehicle that is disassembled and sitting in a shop. So again, to recap on what to expect from Chrysler to make it right if it happens to you.....nothing.

RE: Buy a 2020 Ram diesel?

I get where you are coming from with that question. I am the current owner of a 2019 2500 CTD with 15,000 miles. It left my family on the side of the road for three hours waiting on a tow truck and another two hours waiting on a friend to drive that far to pick up the camper. It is still sitting in the shop because the injector pump is backordered until October or November. FCA can't get a loaner or rental due to issues with the Coronavirus. FCA will not replace it or buy it back. I can not wait that long for a vehicle so I am pretty much forced to trade it in at the dealership where it sits and take my lumps. I am still waiting on an answer as to whether they are helping me any financially with purchase assistance dollars. I am going to a 2020 3500 CTD, and am concerned that this could happen again. I read a quote on one of the forums ..."the pump failures are not a big problem, unless it happens to you, then its a REALLY big problem."

RE: TIres, looking for long wearing, all weather load range E

I took my Firestone ATs off at 29K(drive around the block and see less tread), the Michelin's Defenders have about 37K on them and are about half worn out. Seemz ya getz whatz ya payz fer!!! X2, my oem Firestone HTs were the worst tires I've ever owned. Shot at 24K miles. Great marketing; I'll never buy a Firestone product It has far less to do with brand and far more to do with the sub standard spec tires that that auto mfgs purchase by the millions to shoe new vehicles with. Typically only low volume”specialty” vehicles get real tires, most models get a cheaper version of a “popular” tire model. I was at my local Discount Tire today and asked the same question to the salesman. He confirmed that unless you have a high end model like a Denali or something similar, then the Brand X tire that comes on the truck as OEM vs the Brand X tire that you buy at the store are NOT the exact same tires. He did go on to say that the tires Michelin that are on the Ford's OEM 3/4 & 1T are the same ones that are sold as retail, so if you didn't like OEM, then you're not gonna like the store bought ones expecting a better tire. I've had this theory for quite a while. I'm glad I am not the only one who thinks this. I buy new vehicles quite often and rarely get past 24,000 miles out of anything. I do drive more aggressive and thought that may be it, but my wife's cars do the same.
