Report on new TV

Last late fall I purchased a 2014 ram 3500 Hemi 6.4 gas

Finally our first trip with the new TV towing the 7000# trailer with a week
Worth of gear. Traveling over 400 miles with several major passes in Utah and Colorado. It performed outstanding often forgetting the trailer was there. Except for the large bird hitting the trailer we had no issues.

I have a 2014 2500 megacab 4x4 with the 6.4 hemi as well. I do not pull a camper but I'm a contractor and pull 10k to 14k occasionally around town and short distances. I have been really impressed with mine. The power and mileage have been much more than expected. I had an 08 Chevrolet with the 6.0 gas motor. The 6.4 hemi kills the gm 6.0 in power and mileage. Mine has over 15,000 miles and so far so good.

This is encouraging, how was the mpg and range on your tank?

My mileage was just over 10 MPH. I was traveling over several different mountain passes. So I was pleased based on the mountain ranges I was towing the trailer with.
