650 Mile Trip Pulling 7500LB TT TH Review
Just wanted to give my thoughts on my latest trip with my 13 Ram 2500 CTD.
My truck in Sig 2200 miles
2014 Wolf Pack TT TH 7500 LB Dry
Drove 647 miles round trip
EVIC 10.8 MPG
Hand calculated 10.4 MPG
Rear tires at 54 PSI (forgot to bump them up)
TH Mode the whole trip
EB mode the whole trip
3:42 Axle Ratio
Truck did awesome, one hand on steering wheel etc. Was down in Arkansas
And had a few 7% Grades. Tranny acted a little wired a few times on the down shifts but much improved over my 2012
I locked out 6th when I was running 60 mph but on the interstate when flat ran 6th and enjoyed it.
I found out that the cruise really worked well on the Interstate with hills. Maybe my foot was just tired. LOL
One problem with the truck, my DEF fluid was full before I left and the gauge never moved. No warning,chimes or messages.
Last trip about the same miles, I drained the DEF tank and never received any warning etc. I was running 75mph plus in heavy wind.
Has anyone else gone on a trip pulling 7500 lbs and not seen there DEF gauge move?
