You can use my truck but you will have to drive. I just broke my ankle.

Thanks for the offer! Sorry about your ankle. That happens sometime when you kick too many butts!

Pictures of Setup.

I posted Saturday my Task of setting up the WDH on my combination. Here are the pictures once I was finished. I highly recommend Newbies to take the time and follow the "How to Weigh Your TV/TT" on this forum. Its easy, and will give you more clarity on how to load you TV/TT, and either give you a peace of mind, or make you sweat a little.

Decided I would try 89 octane fuel. I had the manual for the '14 model, and it recommended 87 octane fuel for my engine. I recently downloaded the '15 manual (my truck's year) and it says "87 acceptable, 89 recommended". No telling why that happened, but whatever, I'll give it a try. So far, it seems to run a smidge smoother, but "the proof is in the puddin'" as they say; I'll hand calculate the mileage and see how it comes out. And I'm really looking forward to hitching up the trailer to see if it helps.

Difference in price was $5 on a tank, I can live with that if it's better for the truck.

Installed in-channel vent visors. I'd like to tint the front windows next.

89 octane is recommended / 87 acceptable for my 2011 Ram 5.7 hemi. I tried both many times when it was new, both towing and not. Monitored the fuel mileage and performance, and finally decided 89 oct. fuel made no difference. I did read somewhere that identical engines may differ. Some do better with the higher octane fuel.

Also read that when changing octanes, it's best to run a few tanks through the engine to give time for the computer to make adjustments for air/fuel mix and for the transmission to adjust its shift parameters.

Hope the 87 works best for you. 5 bucks is 5 bucks!

I have a feeling in my gut that the 89 is going to make enough difference for me to switch. I let the tank I had of 87 go pretty low (I didn't have a gas light yet, but I put in 25 gals), so it's not like there's a lot of 87 left in its veins. Already the truck idles smoother, has better pickup, and runs smoother. I used to get some studdering when she was cold after startup, and I didn't get that this morning. I'm really trying to watch out for the "placebo effect", but it does feel different with the 89... Like I said, I'm going to be watching it pretty close for at least 2-3 tanks, and a couple tows and we'll see how it goes. It's our busy season at work, so we're not going anywhere; the tank I put in yesterday will probably last me until our first trip of the season in mid-April.
