Thumbs up 4th of july weekend with the trailer

Got back from a round trip to the Great Smokey Mountains aka Cherokee NC. round trip was abut 296 miles, pulling my pop up trailer and all the gear about 3k lbs. I have the 4.7 with the 3.55 and was surprised that I got 14.8 mpg. hand calculated. this included the 45 min backup at less the 15mph that I sat in on I40 west. Also I listened to the GPS bad idea and was on some road with 9% grade up for 5 to 8 miles at a time. for that I used tow haul and the truck had no problem at all. I dont know how can I say this any better I LOVE MY TRUCK !!!!!!

Great to hear, am sure you had a great time. It always makes it better though when your truck does exactly what you want it to do, when you want it to do it!! Have to love Ram!!

Congrats on the successful tow. Mine did quite well last year pulling some 6% grades in Oregon, Cali and Arizona.

Those are some steep hills. Just goes to show GPS isn't perfect. Glad to hear the truck performed so well for you. I have been more than happy with how mine has pulled.
