RE: Looking at '17 3500 Ram

You can close this thread. Not going to buy the truck.

RE: Looking at '17 3500 Ram

OP here again. Just found out the truck is deleted!!! Having second thoughts now. Personally I would pass, not sure of the laws in Canada, but in the US it is federal law loosely enforced currently, but that could change. The rules are Provincial and it's not a problem where I am. More concerned about future problems. There is still about 1 1/2 year diesel and powertrain warranty. Basically worthless with the delete. And I also don't like the sound!!! Gonna pass.

RE: Looking at '17 3500 Ram

OP here. The Ram may need new tires. I have a line on a set of 275/60 20 tires. Current tires are 285/65s. There is bit of a difference in size. The 285s being the larger. I'm thinking okay? Any tire "experts" or Ram owners that have done this? Thanks Scott

RE: Looking at '17 3500 Ram

Still looking for a truck. Really concerned about the CP4 in the Ford and newer Rams. Going to look at a '17 3500 next week. Has the HO/Aisin. 80,000 Kms Anything I need to look for? Picture Looks like a very nice truck. I priced out a 2017 Laramie Limited/diesel in the fall of 2017. I was quoted 69k plus tax. I plan on getting a quote on one in the next few days .... my expectation is that the price hasn’t changed much over the last 3 years. What do you have to pay for a 2017 now? It's a Laramie Limited and the price is $55,560 Canadian dollars. They had it at $59,500 and just marked it down for "Black Friday". Have it on hold. Going Tuesday to look at it. It's on PEI, I'm in NB. Had a friend there look at it. Front bumper has rock chips and tires should be replaced I'm hoping we can work out a deal.

RE: settle an arguement

I towed a 10k 5th wheel for 7 years with a 6.2. Great combo. The F250 with 3:73 gears is rated to tow 12,000 lbs. For those asking, the payload of that truck is at least 2600 lbs. Put the transmission in tow haul, lock out 6th year, drive it like you stole it. Don't let anyone suggest you need a diesel. That's laughable. S My bad. I thought OP had a 250. Payload for 350 will be North of 3500 lbs.

RE: Southwind heated tanks

Perhaps I need to be clearer. I have not looked at it. As stated in the original post, I may go look at it. It's 3 hours away. The seller is unable to confirm right now. It does not have that detail in the brochure. So, if anyone that OWNS a Southwind, maybe those owners could respond to my question.

RE: Southwind heated tanks

Call Fleetwood with the VIN number and inquire --- 1-800-322-8216. Check control panel(s) for Heat Pad On/Off Switch Check wet bay a ofrea for ducted heat source Yes I plan to do that if I go look at it. S

Southwind heated tanks

Might go look at a 2012 Southwind 32VS. Can't find it in the brochure if the tanks are heated by a 12V pad or the furnace. Anybody know? Thanks S

RE: Andersen and 6'4" Ram

Looks like we can end this discussion regarding this specific truck. It has been sold. Mine is also sold so I think I'll be waiting till the spring to replace it. Not going to Florida this winter, so no need for a truck till then. S

RE: Considering a '17 3500 Ram

Thanks all. Curious about fuel mileage pulling 10k at 65mph. 10-12 mpg US? Forgot to add it's SRW. We get close to that with our 2016 3500 DRW pulling about 13,000# at 65 mph. does this truck have the options you are looking for? Yes. It has the 5th wheel prep which is nice to have also. I'm on the fence when to buy. Mine will be sold this week based on the interest. Five waiting to come see it. The reason used trucks are getting big prices right now is the reason I should wait till the spring. Supply and demand. Truck will be sitting all winter so I'm thinking I should be in no hurry to get a replacement. Decisions!!!

Andersen and 6'4" Ram

Looking at a Ram. Can anyone comment that has an Andersen hitch with the 6' box? What kind of clearance are you getting between the cab and tailgate. What's the orientation of the pin adapter? Thanks

Considering a '17 3500 Ram

As the title says, looking for comments from the Ram owners. Has the HO with Aisin. Mega cab with Laramie trim. 55,000 miles. Any thoughts, comments? Does it have heat/AC vents under the front seats for the rear passengers? Weird question but important one for us. Thanks S

RE: Out of Country medical insurance - Covid-19

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, have any Canadians on here talked to their insurance company about getting coverage for the 2020/21 season? Currently Medipac and Bluecross have statements on their websites that excludes Covid from being covered. If that's the case in September I guess we won't be going. Based on the way things are going down there we're not going to gamble.
