I just saw the pictures. Very sharp looking truck. I'm guessing they didn't mention this at the dealer.

Lol, of course not so I will see in time but other than that I love it and going to and from Las Vegas in the 6.4L hemi was a eye opener. It did it and was able to pull those hills but I was getting about 7 mpg and on the flat I was getting between 8 to 9 mpg.

I wondered how your Vegas trip went. Looks like you've upgraded from a bumper pull to a 5ver. Was that before the Vegas trip? We headed east into Montana around the same time - had fun going over the Continental Divide just east of Butte - Homestake Pass I think it's called. At around 6400 feet that's almost 20% power loss for the Hemi. Didn't have any issues but you could tell it was working harder than normal.

Yes the Vegas trip was awesome we stay at those CG but coming back we stay at the Pony Express RV Resort in Salt Lake City, UT it was great. Yes we did upgrade to a 35' 5th wheel which tow great, the hemi tow it great but in the mountains was getting 7 mpg. I thought that I would get better than that but hey it's all good.

The trip there and back we didn't have any problem what so ever, we got with some of my friends in Vegas, the wife was happy she bought a expense Louis Vuitton Purse. She save up for a few months, I was adding money to her account so she would be able to buy whatever she wanted.

You when we was going to the first CG I though that I seen your setup or someone that had a setup like yours. Well I want to really thank you again because ours first long camping trip went well. So the next time I will be towing my 5th wheel with my diesel and I can't wait.

This recall effects trucks as much as 5 years old! ( 2013- 2017) Thats a long time, so it most likely happens at high milage. On the up side it's FREE cooling system maintenance!

I had my water pump go this summer on a trip and replaced it myself due to the dealers being out 2 weeks. Mine went at 35k and was the seal which weeped through the drip hole.

Still awaiting my reimbursement check, but need to check that the replacement pump is not still under recall.

My dealer doesn't have the data from RAM yet. VIN does not show any recalls due. I was hoping to combine brake controller and TPMS flashes with water pump. Getting really close to 36K
