  1. Tow vehicle concern

    Thanks Al. Okay, newbie found a CAT scale 3 miles away. Now, what exactly should I be doing? Hold my hand a bit longer on this one please.
  2. Tow vehicle concern

    I'll dig all that out this weekend. Thanks so much.
  3. Tow vehicle concern

    Thanks Al. I've got TPMS on truck but not trailer. Working on that one. Have to figure out what exactly to buy.
  4. Tow vehicle concern

    Thanks much. Appreciated. I tried Googling this subject of tire pressure increasing. I did see mentions of expecting a 10 percent increase. That would put pressure at 88. On the latest trip, I actually saw 91.
  5. Tow vehicle concern

    Folks, I have a new Redwood 5th wheel. Dry weight is 13,400 pounds. We will start living in it by the end of the year. I bought a new Ram 3500 SRW to pull it. The truck is rated to pull 17,080 pounds. And max payload is 3,950 pounds. Hitch weight is 2,450 pounds. Pulling the 5th wheel with the truck is fine and stable feeling. But suddenly, after several trips, I started worrying about having only two wheels back there. What if a tire blows. I've got the rear tires filled cold to 80 pounds. Driving home in the heat the other day, the pressure on the rear tires read 90 pounds. It freaked me out. If it wasn't for me worried about tire failure, I don't think I would be thinking about switching out this new truck for a DRW. Help me out guys. Should I be trading now while the truck is almost new??????
