    Just my experience pulling with my 2019 Ram 1500 Bighorn. This is our second RV trailer that we have owned. We had a 2020 Wildwood X-Lite 24RLXL (28.5 feet) but now we have a 2021 GD Transcend 260 RB (31.5 feet) with a 2019 Bighorn (1788 payload) 5.7 without E-torque, aftermarket brake...

    Looking at our 1st TT

    I pull a 2021 Forest River 24RLXL that comes in around that 5500 dry 7200 max with my 2019 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi and 8 speed with 3:21 gears. I live in the South East and it has been just fine. Get about 9 mpg towing. If you do venture out west up into the mountains, just take your time...

    5w20 or 5w30

    My 2Cents - I run Royal Purple 5w20 Synthetic Oil with a K&N 1018 filter (no one stocks the RP Filter around here), Have 20K on truck, I no longer have the Hemi Tick and I also run in it in Tow Mode due to how well it performs and operates. It compliments the Flowmaster exhaust. Think the...

    Gauge Cluster Light settings - too bright or not enough

    Good Morning All, I noticed that there is a time dusk where I need the gauge to light up right in-between the all the way on and the reduced setting, my last 2012 Dodge Charger wasn't like that, maybe they need to reprogram that so we can just a little more light for the gauge cluster. Has...

    Cylinder Cutoff

    I will do the same thing as mentioned up above, put it into 8 via gear limit, especially when you modify exhaust, don't get the odd drone sound and it actually sounds a little nicer when your coming to a stop and the tranny downshifts. If your only going up to about 40 mph, craps n giggles try...

    Air Filter change, what did u go with...

    Week later, so far no change in MPG, IF anything it went down due me having some fun with getting the exhaust. I went back into the air box lid and removed that charcoal filter. To me it doesn't look like it would last much more then 25k. Then again I didn't research the maintenance schedule to...

    Muffler/CatBack for 2019 Ram

    There are truely a lot to pick from now a days. However I headed down to the Engine Performance Shop. Ended up going with a Flowmaster 40 Series #43103, 2 chamber and left the stock resonators and tips. Perfect low pitch tone. There was a 4th gen getting the same muffler but they went with new...

    Air Filter change, what did u go with...

    put in a K&N 33-2247 and left the charcoal filter in as well. First time seeing that set up in any of the Dodge's I have owned. My previous Charger didn't have one. Thought I would go ahead and save a pic for others that haven't opened up their air box to see what's inside. Averaged 18 MPG with...

    Has anyone done a Ram no drill lap top mount in their 2019 Ram 1500?

    Wondering if anyone else has successfully mounted a lap top in their 1500. I had a no drill mount in my previous vehicle, 2012 Dodge Charger but looking to see if this bracket is truly the proper one or not. RAM-VB-178A-SW1 web sites not so clear on 2019 model applications.
