That manual must be quite a tome.
It is. 400 pages plus a separate Diesel Supplement.

Diesels have a feature called an "exhaust brake" and this Ram has a toggle switch to activate full or automatic exhaust brake. It is very useful when carrying or pulling a load when coming down a grade or when otherwise needing to reduce speed, thus keeping the driver from burning out the brakes.

I had to look up a good definition. It is a means of slowing a diesel engine by closing off the exhaust path from the engine, causing the exhaust gases to be compressed in the exhaust manifold, and in the cylinder. Since the exhaust is being compressed, and there is no fuel being applied, the engine slows down the vehicle.

Oil pressure might drop a pound or two as the temps rise.
I've never owned anything with a digital readout. It's good to know that could happen in a 2019 Ram 3500 LARAMIE CREW CAB 4X4 with an 8' box, and inline 6 Cyl Cummins High Output Diesel coupled with a 6 speed Automatic Aisin transmission.

I'm also grateful for cut and paste.

To "run in" the new engine for "fit & finish" under load. Users Guide states this should be done within the first 6000 miles.

You ran into a pile of bricks with your new truck? Did you dump milk shakes on the floor too?

:) No, the gorgeous new truck is just great fun for me after having driven the 'ol Toyota go cart for 23 years. This thread and my posts are my way of sharing my joy with the Group. It's a feel good kind of thing.

Another bright moment was checking the auto transmission fluid at the Circle K. I have a small step ladder I keep in the back seat area in order clean the windshield or to reach into the engine compartment. Whilst up there with it idling I was just so impressed with how very quiet the motor is. It's my new baby and I let soak in all such little pleasures.

Well, today is a good day to ride out to Kitt Peak, so off I go.

Just heard the covid-19 stimulus package includes a Dodge pick up for every family.

That insures they can't leave home.

Very tight fit due to the brick plant bed I built 11 years ago. At the top of the pic you can see the rails I extended down the drive for the Coolaroo shade panel being fabricated...

Recall was for the Ram 3500s with the Chrysler transmission, not the 3500 with the heavy duty Aisin transmission, which I have. The heavy duty Aisin is especially paired with the 2019 re engineered Cummins High Output Turbo Diesel.

I bet Fainn's wife wishes he has an exhaust brake. Am I right?

This may not be exactly how the Cummins system works.

This engine looks a bit larger than what is Goose's truck.

This is quite fascinating. Fortunately, Cummins engineered hydraulic valve lifters into their 2019 and later 6.7Ls making these latch adjustments unnecessary ....

This is my truck in every detail, exactly, except it's black metallic, has a sun roof and the 5th wheel hitch installed. Yet, according to the posted list of options, this truck does not have the High Output 400 HP, 1,000 lb ft of torque 6.7 Cummins, nor the Aisin Heavy Duty 6 Speed Auto Trans, which my truck does have.
