Truck Tuesday: ‘Know Before You Tow’ for Safe, Worry-free Trip

With a segment-busting 1,000 pounds of torque, and benchmark 35,100 pounds of towing capacity, the 2019 Ram Truck Heavy Duty is one lean, mean towing machine, built to tow your fifth-wheel camper, boat or heavy work equipment.

But before heading out, the Ram Truck brand reminds you to ‘know before you tow.’ Take those few extra minutes to double check your towing ‘connections’ to ensure a worry-free trip. To help you do just that we’re kicking off a series of videos that quickly and easily illustrate the safest way to make sure your precious cargo is securely fastened, whether you’re using a gooseneck or a fifth-wheel hitch configuration. 

This #TruckTuesday, Ram Truck Heavy Duty Brand Manager, Brant Combs, and Big Tex Trailers J.D. Schmid, team up for a step-by-step ‘know before you tow’ checklist for your gooseneck hookup.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
