Firemist.....great read! Makes me feel even more comfortable knowing I have essentially the same truck configuration. One thing I may suggest is the voice commands. I wasn't too happy at first with mine, but I found if I speak softer it seems to pick up much better. A few times I raised my voice out of frustration and found the system repeated the command worse. Maybe you have already tried the softer voice but if not give it a shot!

Also, u have the air suspension or coils with aftermarket assistance? Your pic looks like a good stance especially considering you have a cap.

I have the stock springs and shocks. I am using a weight distribution hitch (equalizer brand) which transfers the weight off the back of the truck. It rides very nice and never bottomed out. I was quite happy with it

Hey Firemist32, Great post. Thanks! I have towed a 19bh Salem Le and a 27bhs North Country with my '12 Ram Hemi QC 4 wheel drive on trips of about 600 kms each way, and have seen the mileage at 8.1 mpg(imperial gallons). The smaller trailer was about 4500# and the larger one is closer to 8500#. I haven't tackled any mountains yet(2016 wedding in BC I'm hoping to trailer out to); just through some hills in northern Ontario. I have kept track of all fuel since buying the truck and am running at 15.7mpg(imp).
