If I was in the market for a new truck I would rather buy a truck with a new engine. Just make the dealer ship write a statement that explains that it is a factory new engine And the reasons why it was installed.
I towed about 500 miles and got another regeneration message. What surprised me was that it started regeneration more or less 30 seconds after a cold start? Engine and oil temps under 100 degrees? I would have expected the system to be a little bit smarter and start the regeneration when temps...
Have a 3500 SO 68 RFE.
When I talked to the salesman he recommended to only use gear 1-5 when towing
on the freeway. (Eliminating gear 6)
Going up steep grades he said use gear 4 if it is hunting between 4 and 5.
My travel trailer is about 9000 lbs fully loaded. So not so heavy.
I know that the CP 4 is not as reliable as the CP 3. I also know that if the CP 4 goes bad, it is very likely that the fuel system up stream from the pump is likely to be contaminated.
What happens if the CP 3 goes bad?
is there risk for fuel contamination?
Yes on my F-250 I used Anderson connectors. Did run 6 AWG and that was enough to get 27A from a 30A DC/DC Charger. (4 AWG would be enough to get 30A) Used a solonoid that was activated by one of the upswitches. That had the advantage that I could deactivate the charge from inside the truck.
Have a 2022 3500. Want to run a 6 or 4 AVG cable from Battery to a 30A DC/DC charger on the travel trailer.
Anyone who have done this on a generation 5 ?
I’m a little bit concerned that it might confuse all the computers that are present in the truck if 30/40 A disappear out in thin air.
Thanks John, That explains why so many people including myself thinks that the truck never goes in regen. (On a Ford the regen message comes up independent of what info. Is activated in the cluster) Sitting looking at the DPF load display gets old. There are much more interesting displays to...
I have 2000 miles on my Ram SO 3500 2022.
I have never seen a message of regen in the cluster. Nor have I seen the
DPF load go above zero.
(My F-250 did regen every 500 mile.)
Will you get the regen message independent of what display you have active on the cluster,
Have to make a decision if I should go for the Mopar Maximum Care plan to my Ram 3500, 6.7 2022.
Before deciding it would be great if you who have used the plan could share your experience good or bad.
