My new truck is costing me money!!
Well, I've had my Ram 2500 CTD, affectionately called "The Goat" about a month, and towed our camper 3 times and have 4500 miles on it so far. It drives and towes like a dream!!! Unloaded I'm getting about 19 and towing I get 11.5! It towes so good that I'm trying to find new places to camp! And that means spending more money!! On DEF, I've only used 1/2 a tank, and I'm loving the fact that I can, and do, hit the big rig fueling lanes. Those are easy in, easy out for fueling...I have to use the cruise because it get up to 60 and doesn't even strain, and the next thing I know I am closing in on 65! So I set the cruise to 62, put on the exhaust brake and I'm good to go. Sway control when being passed by big rigs is almost zero. Only if they pass me going a lot faster is it really noticeable.
So, that's my update so far. We are taking a trip to Boone NC Labor Day weekend so that will be the first time in the mountains. Can't wait!!
