  1. I have not had any problems but I have read about people having issues with the Platinum stuff in the 19-21 trucks, so I would stay away from it for right now. I also try to only use the truck stop stuff had 160,000 miles on my 11 truck and now have 83,000 on this 19 truck and can say I've only bought 3 jugs of def all the rest that I have used has been bulk at truck stops.
  2. This issue is 5 months on going, random nonstart, will just click like dead batteries. Batteries were replaced in January, dealer Tech first thougt that the air ride system was causing the problem since it is one of the 2 non stock items on my truck, so we disconnected it from battery and it would start, so I did that everytime I shut the truck off and unpluged my Edge CTS this worked for about 3 days before it would not start again ? At times different things will not trun on when I start the truck my radio presets will disappear, the truck will say that one or more of my turn signal bulbs
  3. Sorry that it has been so long to reply to this, both batteries were replaced in January. The dealer kept it for 4 days and could not find the problem. They said it was the air ride drawing the battery down, so every night I would disconnect it from the battery and also unplug my Edge CTS and for about a week it started every time and then one day when I needed to leave work early with them disconnected it would not start. This has been going on for 5 months now with the random not starting I have a jump box that will start the truck every time. The latest now working feature is the light
  4. Phil, could you PM me about a problem with my 19 3500 no start issue? Thanks
  5. Long story but when I bought my '19 truck I drove 500 miles to get it, when I saw it the dealer had added Ranch Hand bumpers front and rear from the Wednesday when I called about the truck until I got there at 7:00 am on Friday, I found salesman that I had been talking to, he said he didn't know they were going to add the $1600 bumpers until he saw them on it, I told him sorry but I don't like them and there is another identical truck 800 miles away that I was going to go buy!!! He talked me into staying while they checked for the stock bumpers and to see how long it would take to put them ba
  6. This what my set up looks like, I can’t find the up close picture of the bracket but I’ll get one in the sun and post it tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I found a guy in NY that was building some super simple brackets that go under the rails on my Retrax cover and then use the Thule drip rail mount type risers. and then I use a Large size Sears car top carrier, it looks a little strange but does the job very well for extra dry lockable space.
  8. Long story short stock truck will not start from time to time. Finally did not start first thing in mornings three days in a row so its at dealer now. Any one else had this problem, no trouble codes stored. Tech has seen draws on batteries a few times but it stops before he can isolate it. Any help would be great, driving a Dodge every day is killing me!!!!
  9. I would stay away from the factory hitch, that is the only thing I'm not happy with on my truck. The goose ball is loose in the hitch and now it will not unlock and come out of the hitch. Should have put a B & W in it and thrown the factory one in the trash!!! Just my $0.02 your experience may vary!
  10. I just had kelderman's install their Watts Link rear end set up with air bags, I didn't get any pictures yet but I will. I have noticed that unloaded it rides better, can't wait to hook up one of the trailers and put a load on it and see how it does.
  11. Long story short, had flat time changed tire without any problems. Fixed tire and when I tried to unlock the lift the key will turn but the lock will not come out. If i pull hard the plastic cover wants to pull loose some of the way, anyone else had this happen if what fixed it???
  12. I have a recall notice in my 2017 DODGE 1500 work truck that "WHEN THE FUEL TANK STRAPS FAIL FCA WILL REPLACE THEM". I got it when the truck was about one year old I just keep hoping that it don't fall off!!!!
  13. Quick trip to Wally world couple packages of Fish Stink bait, few bottles of deer piss, if you can go over the bridge they are under put one or both out so it runs down into their camp even living in a city you will be surprised at the numbers and types of critters that show up to chow down!!! I've dropped a few bottles of deer pee on accident and had the stink bait fall off the back of the truck a couple of times near people and some of them did not last to long after that. :jester:
  14. My 19 model has been using more DEF than my '11 truck did, in 165,000 miles on the '11 truck DEF cost was $0.00244 per mile. The '19 truck at 49,850 the cost for DEF has been $0.00511 per mile. I have noticed the cost of bulk DEF has gone up the last few years, but I have only used bulk since I first saw it at the local Flying J in 2012!!! with the larger tank in the '19 it is going less miles on average than the '11 truck got about 6,500 miles to tank and the '19 is going about 5,000. :jester:
