    2018 Ram 2500 Cummins, only 13k miles.

    When driving I get a a high pitch whine that changes with transmission shifts.

    I also get the noise at idle when I press hard on the brakes.

    Little to no noise when idle.

    Looking online it seems it might be the hyrdaboost and power steering, but the noise is not quite the same.

    Any ideas, and is it safe to tow my travel trailer home.

    Hopefully that's all your truck needed. Nice and easy.

    Well considering I have already gone through a whole bottle, there is definitely a leak. Adding more every hour fixed the issue though. I have 3 more bottles which will get me and my trailer home at least.

    It's still under warranty so it's going to the shop next week.
