2010 Dodge Ram 2500 HD Tips, Tricks, and Hints.

I purchased a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 HD Laramie this weekend.   On the way home I wanted to delieve deeper into what I had just purchased and was shocked at the lack of documentation.  I had owned newer fords or older dodges so getting handed a key FOB to start the truck was a bit shocking.  They do give you a user manual and a DVD but I was unable to locate several things and figured out some more just by trial and error.  Below is a list of tricks, tips, and hints as well as some things I can't figure out.  If you have a solution please drop me a line.
