Pleased with Tow vehicle Brake life
I use my daily driver, a 2015 Ram 1500 ecodiesel, as my tow vehicle for our 26RR. My daily work use is 80% of the trucks miles with very little highway and mostly hills. The other 20% being fun time towing the 26RR with a 900 lb Harley inside and that is mostly highway. Approx weight is 6500 lbs and I have electric brakes on the TT. I also tow other large boats (7000 lb) and utility trailers quite often, some have trailer brakes and some don't. Towing I average 13 mpg and 26 mpg avg not towing.
I just received a call from the shop that is installing new tires onto the truck as I asked them to check the brakes. At 60,000 miles, the brakes still have more than 60% of the original pads that came from the factory. I typically do not get this much life out of my brakes on the tow vehicle, but this is also my first Ram. The others have been Chevy's and Fords.
Everyone's driving styles are different, as is the terrain, loads, speeds, etc.. so it is hard to compare, but I am quite happy with the brake life of this little Ram.
