Not another one!!!
I just got back from travelling from Windsor, ON CA to Gatlinburg, TN US to camp in the Smoky Mountains for a week. I will be as brief as possible.
See my sig and profile. 4 bicycles loaded in the bed.
91, 92 or 93.
2005 Springdale 295 BHLGL - 6200lbs dry - probably tipping 7000lbs for trip.
300 miles on 30 gallons at each fillup on the way down. A little less on the way up. You can figure out that mileage. I was pretty happy. Averaged 60-65mph. It starts to get pretty hilly around Cincinnati. The monsoon also started around Cincinnati and did not let up for the rest of the trip down. Needless to say my 8 year old trailer did NOT like that. Weather was fair for the trip back home.
Ranged between 145F and 160F depending on hills. Tow/Haul mode. One thing I did notice is that the temp would shoot up every time I forgot to hit the Tow/Haul button after a pit stop. After I hit the button the temps would start to drop down slowly.
Around 205F. Would shoot up to 220-225F when climbing a long hill while cranking out 4500RPMs.
That's it. Overall I'm very pleased with how the Ram performed on the 1100 mile round trip. Especially the 10mpg.
