How to Optimize Work Utility from Ram Promaster 1500
The Ram Promaster 1500 serves as one trim level of Ram Promaster vans beginning 2013, under the RAM brand for light to mid-mass commercial vehicles, from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' subsidiary, FAC US LLC. Veering away from traditional pickups, it's a light-weight cargo van targeting handymen on the works. While offering options for low- or high-roof, the low-load floor but tall stature of Ram Promaster 1500 presents wide possibilities for dynamic working positions and equipment handling. Aside from passenger-side sliding doors, standard features for 2015 include a 3.6-liter, V6 engine which makes for a refined passenger car driving while gearing up for cargo load of up to 4,440 pounds. As Ram Promaster 1500 also has available 118- or 136-inch wheelbases, power is transmitted by 6-speed automatic transmission, front-wheel drive set-up, which allows great front control that is made better by an expansive windshield.

- Spend time to check your sliding doors.
Your van's sliding doors may stiffen and won't budge at some point. Cleaning and lubrication is required at the lower track, where debris and rust are most likely to build up, and at the top rail, rollers, and latches. To clean the assembly, gently slide a soft cloth upon the tracks to take off any grime or dirt built-up. Next, apply a reasonable amount of grease onto the tracks, guide rails and cables while spray onto the wheels a proper weight lubrication product. Slide open and close the door several times to set off the grease properly into the enclosures while adding more of it until the door glides. Finally, use a clean rag to wipe off the assembly from any remaining lumps of grease.
- Be on the lookout for windshield dings.
Windshields may develop dings from fractures caused by stones, grit, and sand particles. When you spot dings, take precautions to avoid getting a cracked windshield. Once you see a circle or a small star deep in the glass, never attempt to fix it yourself but instead, arrange for its immediate repair at the auto shop. As short-term remedy, place a clear tape on the affected portion to keep it from expanding.
As much as possible, stay away from the vehicle by not driving out and slamming the doors as these cause vibration, which may cause the ding to spread further. Avoid rolling the windows all the way up and getting a car wash to elude pressure built-up from inside or outside the van. Refrain also from creating drastic temperature changes such as turning on the heater, defroster, or air-con immediately to high mode or parking under direct sunlight as these may destabilize the windshield.
Utilize proper equipment for your cargo storage and organization such as racks, carts or space dividers. Match these with appropriate ropes to tie them down tightly and keep them stable while driving, thus avoiding scratches or dents caused by bumps or sudden stops at the road. Moreover, make sure that your cargo load does not exceed the maximum approved capacity so you won't weigh down the van with excess baggage.
