RE: Tow capabilities

It is always better to use the trailer GVWR and 10-12 percent of that for hitch weight. I do not think it is the right TV or trailer.

RE: Chasing No left turn Signal on Trailer With Ram Truck

Check for a trailer connector fuse? Does the brake light work? Looks like fuse 53 Fuse block Brake lights work, I think. I need to check that again. Left signal works on truck so fuse 53 how could that be an issue if it works on the truck? Just asking F53 = Trailer Tow – Left Turn/Stop Lights

RE: 2023 GM HD 505hp/1085tq

Also apparently an upgraded rear diff to handle the power, and upgrades to the Allison branded transmission as well. Good to hear from ya'. Interesting. Means maybe higher axle ratings = more money payloads. Sounds like GM is getting serious in the commercial LDT market. They have taken the back seat to the Ram and Ford SD for years now in that market. I know'22 GM 3500 drw move up to 10500 rawr has made a bit of "about time" comments from GM fans on those type of websites. They have try to do something, as they getting their behind kicked in the sales arena. Ugly front end and fake Allison may not be helping them. Real Allison's sold the product for many years.

RE: 2022 Chevy Silverado Reveal

I'm assuming you sold your 2015 Ram and why? My wife was diagnosed with ALS in December 2020 and I could not transfer her from a wheel chair into the RAM. So in the spring we sold the Laredo TT and RAM, and her son and his FIL brought the EDGE ST down to AZ for us. She passed away on July 5th! So the dealer that sold us the ST 15 months ago gave me more than we paid for it and 2K off the F150, so I am back into a pickup truck. The Edge towed the trailer with the Can Am Spyder just fine, however before I headed North for the rest of the summer I bought a Kawasaki KRX1000 side by side that is in the carport in AZ waiting for my return. With the box off the Primo 6x12 trailer the KRX should fit. It was going to push the Edge ST close to it's limits. The KRX is twice the weight of the Spyder. So I looked at RAM 1500s (concerned about cam/lifter issues) , Chevy 1500s (concerned about lifter/push rod issues) and settled on the F150 with the 2.7L ecoboost. Under different circumstances I would still have and be driving the RAM, which was a really great vehicle. https://i.imgur.com/ZNO8eL8l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/oOoPIySl.jpg

RE: 2022 Chevy Silverado Reveal

Very nice Chris! A man just needs to have a truck! Hard to best those Ford 150s, looks, performance, and mileage. Did you get the 2.7? Jerry Yes 2.7, XLT Sport with all the goodies. 302A package, 275/85R18s, 3.55 axle with electric locking rear, 360 cameras, Co-pilot 360(adaptive CC with stop start and Nav/12" center stack display), Pro trailer assist and brake controller, powered sliding rear window. They gave me more than we paid them for the Edge ST 15 months ago and 2K off the F150 which they had on their lot.

RE: 2022 Chevy Silverado Reveal

GM just seems challenged to design to front of a truck. The front of my new 2021 F150 XLT Sport looks 10 times better than this new squinting Chevy! https://i.imgur.com/OOWeSnjl.jpg

RE: Traction control systems and trailer sway bars

I do not think a 7K trailer with 700 lbs of hitch weight stands much of a chance of pushing around a 3500 dually truck. Tonnage and wheels on the ground win 99.99% of the time.

RE: Ram 3500 issue

I had same issue was told that’s normal. Plus, extreme front tire wear. Went two different dealers and wrote to Dodge customer Service sorry can’t help you. It got so bad that when just turning corner even without rv steering wheel pulled back and forth. Took it to third dealer and they replace steering gear and pump. So far problem solved. Extreme front tire wear is the factory tow in setting. To much toe in. Ron should have replied to that! He seldom misses the issue!! RON!

RE: Nc hauler and ricatic

NC (Jim) and I became friends as he had a RAM Truck and bought a Mobile Suites that we had plenty of phone calls about. We had plans to meetup in TX some time but unfortunately never happened. Super nice guy!!! Same here , talked about meeting in Montana . He also became pretty acquainted with mowermech , I believe that's his name on there . He lives in Montana . Unfortunately he became ill, and those plans never came about . Yup, we had discussed getting together.. then He had his stroke, then his wife had hip issues and things calmed down a bit then he passed.. ... what a shame... he was a great guy... NC also had a mud slide destroy a new toy hauler that he had just bought to start traveling, and ended up with the MS the Ron talked about. Jim was a great guy and we PM'e a lot back and forth.

RE: I refuse to double tow.

Without adequate pin weight I don’t think he’d be on the highway. I had to add a few hundred pounds of counter weight up front to safely carry 1000 lbs behind my fiver. Would that UTV weigh 1200 lbs? It appears to be a four seater RZR, probably around 1500. I'd sure like to see the welding ,and bracing to accomplish that. Lot of naysayers ,but it looks to be working. Sure would like to know more about that setup. Can't be a 4 seater, they are much longer than the unit pictured. That is 1400+ depending on the make model. My new Kawasaki KRX is just under 2K.

RE: Registration fee for 5th wheel in AZ

I bought an utility trailer to move my Can Am Spyder three wheel motor cycle between Arizona and Washington each spring and fall. $175 for a life time plate!Cars, trucks and RV are really expensive in Arizona however.

RE: 2018 EXPLORER MPG WHILE TOWING

Hemi problem was fixed with 2016 models. My 2015 got the upgrade under warranty and never had another lifter/cam issue. I should have mentioned that also. Although rarely we have a couple newer ones roll through the door now and then. Still not an issue. How many dropped Hemi valve seats have you seen?

RE: 2018 EXPLORER MPG WHILE TOWING

I have a 13 limited 3.5 N/A. Highest highway mileage I’ve seen was 22. The only towing I have done with it was my 3 place snowmobile trailer so this was winter in single digits, but it was 8! The only time I have towed in warm weather was a 6X12 U haul with a couch in it, I got 12. My 12 Chrysler 300 with the Hemi gets better mileage than it. I would much rather have an engine that burns more fuel vs burns up cams. What? The 3rd generation of Hemi engines are poorly designed and it is hard for the cam lobes and roller lifters to get lubed. If they are idled a lot, little or no oil gets splashed up on the cam. The raised cam shaft position caused the cam lifters do not get enough oil. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTL8QEU2NwE

RE: What a deal!---no thanks

Were any of them 6.0s? No and there was no 7.3's on the list either. Yeah, they know owners do not want to part with their 7.3's.

RE: 3.31 gears at 40,000 lbs gross.

Is is not true that the pinion gear in a 4.10 diff is not as strong as one in a 3.31 diff? Or is it the ring gear? Just saying! I loved the tall gears in my former 2015 SRW RAM with Aisin. I thought I had the best of both worlds. 1750 RPMs that 80 MPH yet towed heavy without issues.
