    Phone overheats while using wireless charger

    I've used a wireless charger on my Samsung S21 for years, just put it on the charger when I go to bed, pick it up in the morning and it's at 85% (battery protection mode On). Never a problem. Yesterday I used the wireless charger on a 12 hr drive on my 2023 Laramie 1500, while running both...

    Actual Fuel Capacity?

    I'll answer my own question. Only one fill up so far, but it looks like my "26 gallon" tank actually has 25-26 gallons of capacity. Guage showed 1/8 tank (no low fuel light yet), remaining range was 60 miles, meaning about 2.5 gallons left (at 24 mpg). Tank took 22.5 gal. All is good (range now...

    Towing without WDH, Timber Grove?

    WDH is not an option, per my trailer manufacturer.

    Actual Fuel Capacity?

    It's a single tank, in middle of RV, with fairly long filler tube. Foam comes up that tube way before tank is actually full. I've learned to live w approx 60 "working gallons" in a 90 gal tank. Gives me 500 mile range, ready to stop anyway.

    Actual Fuel Capacity?

    Tron67j, not what I was asking about, but your comment about not topping off when fueling got my attention. On my RV (Freightliner chassis, Cummins ISB engine), I've always filled to click, wait 20 - 30 seconds for foam to subside, then add several more gallons until it clicks again. If I...

    Towing without WDH, Timber Grove?

    Thanks for the feedback. Will find an excuse to tow somewhere, tweak tongue weight by jeep position on trailer, and see how it handles. Won't rush out to buy air bags.

    Towing without WDH, Timber Grove?

    Looking for rear suspension anti droop solution that will have no negative impact when not towing. Leaning toward Timber Grove ASAM (SQ7724956), $428-. Looked at Air Lift (1000 and 5000) & Timbren; Timber Gove seems to get better reviews. Anything else I should be considering? Truck is a new...

    Actual Fuel Capacity?

    I know it's described as a 26 gallon tank, but vent and filler location prevent "100% utilization" in many vehicles. What's the max you have pumped into a near empty ecodiesel? I'm familiar w diesels, know you shouldn't run them to empty. Don't want air in lines, don't want floating...

    AWD, TC, and Limited Slip

    Given we are getting rare rain So Calif, I'm wondering how well my new Ram selectable AWD system works on wet pavement (compared to a sole full time AWD system, like Subaru, where all 4 tires are always driven). That got me thinking about relation between Ram AWD, traction contol, and limited...

    Buy new Ecodiesel After HPFP Fix?

    One more stipulation in the details of the HPFP addendum - if you use fuel with greater than 5% bio diesel (up to max of 20%), the oil and fuel filter change increment becomes 8,000 miles or 6 months (instead of the standard 10,000 miles or 12 months)

    Buy new Ecodiesel After HPFP Fix?

    More precisely, it says to use no more than 5% bio diesel, unless you can't get it in your state. Then up to 20% is ok, but be sure to use it up within 30 days. Image of exact wording attached.

    Buy new Ecodiesel After HPFP Fix?

    I bought one of the ecodiesel w the replaced HPFP. Paperwork included an info kit on the recall and new pump - basically saying to not use bio fuel greater than 20%. See pic. BTW - got a Larame w the B equip group, MSRP $72k, purchase price $53k, out the door $60k (Calif taxes).

    Why 22" Wheels?

    I’m looking at new 1500’s. Found a Laramie Ecodiesel I like, except it has the Night Edition, which includes 285/45/22 tires. Seems like the lack of sidewall would degrade the ride significantly. Am I too old school in thinking 22” wheels and 45% aspect tires are a bad combination for a truck...

    Buy new Ecodiesel After HPFP Fix?

    Dealer just emailed, saying the Ecodiesel fix has been performed and trucks are now available for sale. Anyone know what the fix really is? He said several Bighorns are now available for $17k off MSRP. Sounds good, but I'm wary of truck that's been sitting for nearly a year and has now been...

    Buy new Ecodiesel After HPFP Fix?

    There are a few remaining Ecodiesels on So Calif dealer back lots, but are currently unsellable because of a fuel pump recall (since late April I think). From what I'm being told (sales people), it could be a couple weeks or many months before the "fix" is available the inventory can be sold...

    ACC on Bighorn?

    Is adaptive cruise control available on a Bighorn? Looking at Build/Price options, don't see where you can choose ACC (not listed with Level 1 Saftey Group). Do I have to go to a "higher" version to get ACC?

    Towing without air suspension?

    I'm looking to get a new Big Horn 1500 Ecodiesel 4wd crew cab; will tow a 6,000 lb. trailer 100 - 200 miles a couple times/year. I'd prefer the air suspension option, but I'm only finding that on Laredo and up (unless I place a "special order"). Assuming I get a Big Horn with the standard coil...
