    Mark Dodge Thread

    Port Allen (in Baton Rouge) is where the truck gets off the train. From there, it waits for a carrier to take it to MD. MD has access to the shipping status. This includes when the truck got on the train and when it is expected to get off the train. I'm not sure when those dates are...

    Mark Dodge Thread

    I don't recall receiving an email from RAM that my truck had shipped. I checked with Sandi a few days after my window sticker and was told it was on a train. In my opinion, a delivery window from RAM won't tell you much. They kept changing mine the longer my truck was in shipping. IIRC, it...

    Mark Dodge Thread

    After the truck left SHAP, Ramchat was able to tell me an estimated arrival date at MD. This wasn't helpful as it kept being extended the longer I waited. However, MD is able to see the status of the truck during shipping. I ended up emailing Sandi every week or so to check on the progress...

    I picked mine up at MD at it had 17 miles when I picked it up. IIRC, that was about the same as my previous car that was also factory ordered.

    Discussed financing after the truck arrived at MD. Had everything finalized and DocuSigned a few hours after Aaron called to tell me the truck had arrived.

    Mark Dodge Thread

    Not the person you were responding to, but I figured I would give my experience financing through Mark Dodge when I purchased a few weeks ago. My credit score was high 700s. With $1000 down (the deposit on the truck) on my ~$60k purchase price, I was offered a 3.5% loan for 60 months. Putting...

    Is 0% financing gone? 0% for 48 months shows on ramtrucks.com as being good through 11/30.

    I'll need to pay closer attention when driving at night. I haven't noticed the beams moving like that when driving. How obvious is the movement?

    2022 Orders

    There have been at least 2 people that have picked up their 2022 1500... Myself being one. It sounds like the are quite a few more that have shipped.

    2022 Orders

    I'm very happy with the lights on my 2022 Limited. An extra light will illuminate an additional area on the front left or front right of the truck at times. It appears to occur at low speeds when you either a) use your turn signal b) turn the wheel. I'm assuming this behavior is the...

    Uconnect 5 Soft Reset/Reboot and Factory Reset Instructions

    @ekaz is correct. I am referring to the turn by turn directions showing in the screen behind the steering wheel as opposed to just in the Android Auto UI. With the 2022 Ram 1500 / UConnect 5, Apple CarPlay is able to display turn by turn directions in this screen. Android Auto doesn't appear...

    @KWKSLVR I think you posted recently asking about the drive from Mark Dodge to Birmingham. I figured I would give input based on my recent drive back to Atlanta. I-10 Heading from Lake Charles, LA to Baton Rouge, LA: - There's a section of I-10 (I think it was just West of Lafayette) where...

    Uconnect 5 Soft Reset/Reboot and Factory Reset Instructions

    At least you get turn-by-turn navigation from Apple CarPlay. That doesn't seem to be a feature available when using Android Auto. Though, I guess having directions that are wrong is actually worse than no directions at all :)

    Uconnect 5 Soft Reset/Reboot and Factory Reset Instructions

    False alarm. My issue was user error. Thanks to @AngelPhoenix I was able to fix my issue. There is a setting that will default the infotainment system to off when you start the truck. I apparently changed that when messing with settings and didn't realize what that option actually did. This...

    I'll have to verify next time I'm at the truck. However, I believe the trailer hitch light comes on whenever the bed lights come on. So, you might be able to tap into the bed lights if you wanted to retrofit the trailer hitch light.

    Start of 2022 Production.

    I think 3-4 weeks is the average, but it varies a lot. There's someone on here that had their truck shipped to the same dealer as me (Mark Dodge). Their truck shipped a week before me and took 10 days to get to the dealer. Mine took 21 days.

    My Limited has that as well. I'll try to get some pictures of the truck posted tomorrow.

    In some EVs, you hardly need to use the brake. So, it certainly saves the brakes there. I doubt it does much with the truck. The regenerative braking is minimal and, from my understanding, is primarily used to charge the eTorque battery.

    Uconnect 5 Soft Reset/Reboot and Factory Reset Instructions

    Everytime we start the truck, the screen is blank and I have to reset it. It is odd. The screen works for some features, but the main UI doesn't render. If I change the temperature with physical buttons, the change displays in the corner of the screen briefly (rest of the screen is black)...
