I'm on my fourth Ram but first 3500 Dually. I pick it up Saturday and have to tow with it about 2500 miles. I'll put 500 miles on it or so before i hook anything to it, but, any warnings, suggestions, concerns i should have?

Also, Is there a particular fuel additive or oil additive that you'd start with from day one?

Thanks,

KP

I tow heavy all the time. I use Rotella T6 because I am in the north where temperatures get cold. Also, I treat my fuel in the fall with Diesel 911 to prevent any possible gelling. Gas stations do not advertise when they switch from summer to winter diesel, I doubt they even know.

You can google search and download a PDF copy of your manual and it will tell you the break in procedures. These are more for the transmission and gearsets than the engine itself.


IIRC its 500 miles before you tow and stay under 55 for the first 500 miles towing
