Default 6 Month oil change

Just purchased my 2013 Dodge Ram Big Horn 2500 HD with the 6.7 Cummins. It states to change the oil every 6mos or 15,000 miles which ever comes first. I only use to tow my 5th wheel and seldom drive when at home so I put on approximately 3000 to 4000 miles in 6 months is it still necessary to change the oil that soon, 6 months or can I run a little longer? I can't see the harm to run past 6 months and add miles up to 10,000 before the change. I'm using full synthetic and original OEM filter. Need help in this matter.

You can run the Cummins longer, but while its under warranty I wouldn't push it. Even just sitting oil can degrade, I know guys who run their Cummins over a year without a change and the oil still tests good. With my Cummins I usually stuck to a 6month change schedule.

Yeah the issue was the warranty, I was concern how Dodge would handle that. I already called Ram customer care and they told me 6 months or 15,000 miles which ever comes first.
