Re: Power Wagons hold their value

The fact that Rams are sold for $10K off sticker every day of the week tells you that MSRP may be over valued? According to NADA your Ram is worth $14K less on trade in than MSRP in a year over and lost 19% retail. That's about normal for a 1 year old vehicle. Yeah - the MSRP is meaningless - I agr...

Power Wagons hold their value

I've had my 2014 Power Wagon for exactly 1 year now and I can't believe how well it is holding it's value. MSRP was $58,040 and I payed $47,613 plus tax from the dealer. Trade-in is currently listed at $44,675. It's only lost $3,000 in value in the first year... ImageUploadedByTapatalk1436972952.839...

Re: Engine Block Heater Cord location?

Passenger front side behind the front bumper near the tow hook.

And in case you're interested, it draws about 600 watts

Re: How many of you are overweight?

So that figure for the tires... That's adittional load not including the truck? Sometimes people obsess over the term payload - Ram classified the Power Wagon with a GVWRC of 8510 pounds despite it being a 3/4 ton truck. It has been classified that way through each of the modern generations. A stan...

Re: How many of you are overweight?

Again I will say that I think this latest generation Power Wagon is under-rated in terms of capacity. I often tow my dump trailer loaded to 15,000 pounds without any issues. Perhaps if I had to make the trip from Dillon to Eisenhower pass several times a day I would have a different opinion. Stock -...

Re: Factory Trailer Brake Controller Question

I wish it was a setting I had wrong. I'm just a moron. The trailer had surge brakes not electric brakes. Yup- I'm an idiot... Well - with surge brakes and the 4-pin electric connection - the truck brake controller does not register that you are towing a trailer. (My boat trailer has surge brakes). ...

Re: TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR

Sorry to hear that so many are having issues with their TPMS... My sensors appear to be precise within 1 psi, but I'm not sure how accurate they are since I don't have a traceable standard. It''s been almost a year and I haven't had an alarm - maybe I should deflate a tire to make sure the alarm act...

Re: How many of you are overweight?

Expect to use a higher gain on the ram electric brake controller. The trailer dealer indicated that the Ram gains need to be set higher than Ford or Chevy - no explanation why. Mine is always set with a gain of 6 or higher. Are you using light or heavy brake? I typically use the heavy electric brak...

Re: How many of you are overweight?

I don't seem to have any issue with my Power Wagon brakes when fully loaded. If there are issues that others are having, it is likely due to their trailer brake setup or adjustment. You really need to take the time to find the correct gain settings for any electric brake trailers you are using when ...
