Dodge Ram 5500 motorhome

Ward, have you had any issues with the Aisin trans? I go back in forth between a manual and an auto in an overland rig. I intend to use either the 4500 or the 5500 and put a camper on the back and travel out of the country. My concern is being out in the boonies with an auto and having an electrical issue stop my forward progress. I've read on line about a dead-pedal issue with the Aisin...have you experienced this? Appreciate any thought you might have....or anyone else, for that matter.
 
Hey ATCws, I would build the exact same camper the second time. The Cummins and Aisin have been flawless so far. I just googled Dead Pedal issue and I can assure you I am having nothing like that. The Cruiser will pull away from any stop almost as fast as the cars beside it. Like I said, so far no concerns at all with the power train.

Finally saw your beautiful rig in passing yesterday in Lethbridge. Knew it was you from a block away. Hopefully one day I’ll get a closer look, good luck in your recent travels.
 
Left our kitchen reno behind for a much needed break to the mountains.
Just about to leave the house


We were treated to a beautiful sunset just a couple hours east of home.


More to come as soon as Photobucket can load.

Breakfast stop just west of Fernie, BC


Between Fernie BC and Invermere BC
A rest stop along the way


Campsite at Banff




A fire just south west of Banff had us change our route an also clouded the sky with smoke




Using all the cooking arrows in my quiver


The reason we ended up in Banff to begin with. When your daughter in law says why don’t you join us in Banff for four days and this cat is waiting for you we jumped at the chance!
