Re: 2018 Power Wagon Brake Issues

I've had a few instances of soft brakes with my 2018. I dropped the truck off for one of the recalls and asked them to check it. They agreed something wasn't right. I had to leave the truck there, but they provided a courtesy truck. They told me they bled the brakes twice and it is good now. I pick ...

Re: Tow/Haul Mode in the Back Country

I like the way it changes engine braking. I use it off-road if 4 hi frequently.

Re: Coyote Flats Trip Pics/Vids

Coyote Flats were on my to-do list this summer. So far I haven't made. I will likely be in Papoose flats very soon though.

Re: Strange A/C Problem

There are bushings you can buy to strengthen the grab handle. I added those after I went through a couple of replacement handles.

Re: USGS Earthquake map

I live in Ridgecrest and we have been feeling every one of them.

I also use the same USGS link.

We've had about 900 quakes over 2.5 since the whole thing started. We left town today to get some sleep.

Re: I put my order in

I got the dual alternators specifically for winching. I've been off road a lot lately, but I must be doing something right, because the winch isn't getting any use. If I get a chance to cut some firewood in the National Forrest soon, I'll definitely be using the winch then.

Agreed. I can't help but think how much better full-sized trucks became after the introduction of the Tundra.

Re: 2018 PW Newbee

Page 368 through 370 on the 2018 manual. Make sure you are below 3mph. Unless I am actually scrambling over something, I usually have to do some S turns to get the front to lock.

Re: Recall done

Works fine on my 18 Are you referring to the HDC? They may have finally gotten it sorted out for yours. My 2018 delivered in March would allow you to select HDC, but you could not +/- the speed at all. It would only operate at the slowest setting. I found out there was a service bulletin about the ...

What issue do you have with hill descent control?

Hill Descent Control does not work at all on the 2018s. Apparently, it is a know issue and is incorporated in the cruise control recall.

Re: Recall done

I don't know how much I will use it, but I want the Hill Descent Control to work on my truck. That is a fix on the 2018 trucks with the cruise control recall. It is 1.5 hours to the nearest dealer. One won't return my messages. The other can't get me in for about a month.

Re: I put my order in

I never had a '14. I had an '04 Off Road that was a great truck. Someone ran a red light and totaled it a year an a half ago.

My profile says 2014 because that is as high as the model years go when you join the forum.
