My 37 gallon RDS Tank gets delivered on this coming up Monday. I ordered it though Camping World as I was able to get free shipping and 15% through a coupon. I had spoke with RDS several times through the process after I placed my order with CW. Long story short RDS shipped over 10,000 tanks per month and YOU can ORDER direct. Rock Auto also sells the RDS tanks as thats where my father in law ordered his from after learning I bought one. He doesn't want to be the reason we are stopping for fuel lol

Note that mine was advertised as 52 gallon. It holds 48 actual gallons. With a five gallon safety, that leaves 43 usable gallons which in my case is 430 miles of towing.
The Titan OEM replacement tank for the long bed RAMs is rated for 55 gallons with about 51 usable.... 510 miles towing range.... plenty for most. That would be a very long towing day. 2-300 miles per day is about all I would want to do. I can refill later at my convenience. A friend of mine installed one, took about three hours. It's in our future outfitting plan.

Note that 51 gals usable is not practical. I never tow up to the last gallon of fuel. Also with the Ram, the fuel gauge will not even be close to accurate. The latest info on reprogramming the Ram fuel level is forget it. The factory won't allow it. Hopefully they change that. When installing the new tank I recommend putting in 5 gallons and note the gauge. Then 20 more gallons. Then fill to the gills.

You are right about fueling at your convenience. That in itself is worth it.

Would not go that low on fuel. I always fill just before my 5 gal left light comes on. 500 miles would be lovely to have. When we go back to California in the holiday season we drive 650 mile days. We have 3000 miles to our furthest daughters house form N. Carolina to Bishop CA. Anyway, on a 650 day drive it could be up to 3 times in a truck stop. Thanks for the good information, all of you guys ROCK!!!!!!
