RE: 12 volt DC Kuerig Mini

The Myjo coffe maker is a way to make Kuerig coffe if you have a way to heat the water. Very simple gadget. No electric required. MyjOhttps://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/81dxlQ9OVQL._AC_UL400_.jpg

RE: Tire Failure

"Might have to take our chances with Goodyear." Say it ain't so Ethyl. ;) Not only will you take your chances with Goodyear. You will pay signicantly more $$$ to take your chances with Goodyear.

RE: Black Eye

Based on responses from this thread, we can see why there is no firm pull over, don't impede traffic rule. It seems we all have a different approach / standard as to what s acceptable when it comes to a line of traffic behind you.

RE: Tire Failure

I am an Anti-Chinese tire person. How much evidence does one need to understand the problem? You are obviously not aware of Sailun tires. They have reinvigorated the 16" and larger towable RV tire market.

RE: Black Eye

I think the issues is driver awareness. The driver should be aware that they are impeding ttaffic and do what they can to improve traffic flow vs. being oblivious to the fact that there is a line of traffic behind them. In some cases a pull off maybe available in some cases there maybe no way to allow the traffic to pass. However the offending driver will never find a pull off if they are aware they are impeding traffic and not looking for a way to let the traffic pass. A good driver will be aware and couteous vs. unaware or stubborn. Often the driver does not believe they are impeding trafic or they believe it is OK for them to impede traffic regardless of the situation.

RE: Kia, Hyundai: Please come to the rescue "Pathetic Quality"

I think the prior post raise a good point. All or at least most of the towable manufacturers that built a better unit are out of business. Excel,Carriage,DRV are gone. We claim we want better, but we don't seem to support the companies that build a better unit. When the time come we settle for the mass produced mediocrity vs. paying more for a better unit.

RE: Kia, Hyundai: Please come to the rescue "Pathetic Quality"

RV's are essentially hand built with no continuity. It costs money to build with quality, and consumers have not been willing to spend the money. I don't think that is quite true. Japan took the automotive industry by storm way back when. Japanese imports were not necessarily cheaper than American made they were just better quality. Americans made their purchases based on quality not price.

RE: Replacing front landing gear box and motor.

I agree attached to the truck is foolproof and is ultimately the safest method. However the truck is in the way and limts my access to the leg. I don't believe I can raise the front hatch attached to the truck either. while I agree using the truck is the safest method but it also makes the job more difficult. On flat ground heavy duty jackstands are safe enough for me.

RE: How to carry blackstone griddle

I clean my 22" with water and flip it over so the cooking surface is facing the burners, keeps them and everything else in the passthrough clean. No carrying bag for me, that's too much like work =) A bag allows you to store stuff on top of the griddle. It also allows you to store the blacksone vertically. Lastly a bag contains any smells which may attract the mice and other critters in the area.

RE: How to carry blackstone griddle

My small one 17” goes back in the box it came in. I wish I would’ve gotten the 22”. The single control knob is terrible, rather have the dual control of the 22”. I originally had a 17" model. It worked OK, however on cold/cool mornings it struggled to get/stay hot, especially if there was a breeze. The 22" model does not struggle in cooler conditions I sold the 17" model to a buddy and purchased a 22". I have been totally happy with the 22"

RE: How to carry blackstone griddle

I've been keeping mine in the carry bag for several years now with no negative effect. yes, I have the slight tacky residue but it hasn't transferred over to the carry bag. Whatever works though Mike I also keep my entire unit with lid in a storage with no ill effects. While the interior of my bag is not greasy, the idea is for the bag to contain the grease vs. having grease everywhere. So if my bag were to be a bit sticky, who cares that is the whole point of the bag! If you heat scrape aclean with water keep the unit clean is not a big deal.

RE: How to carry blackstone griddle

As others mentioned clean it with heat and water. I have a lid on mine. I also have a carry bag that is large enough to hold the entire grill with closed lid. It all packs away very easily.

RE: 5er accidents

I think some take the I can't tell it there approach and become too comfortable going down the road. On a good clear light traffic day its easy to get too comfortable. Being too comfortable quickly turns into being careless. Throw in bad conditions, a twisty road, blind spot or a sudden stop and suddenly you have an accident. Having a questionable tow vehicle gives one less margin for error when unexpected things happen. Having the correct tow vehicle should be the first priority. THe correct tow vehicle will give you the maximum safety margin even if that tow vehicle doesn't fit in the garage!... LOL... Staying alert and attentive to road conditions is the next key to success. THese simple priciples apply to 5'ers and bumper pullsas well as any oversize vehicle.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Vehicles with major electrical issues sometimes have a short and catch fire….;) And that's why I'm never going to buy a Ram again, or recommend that anyone buy one. They are overpriced pieces of Bye-don dung. https://www.jdpower.com/Cars/Ratings/Ram-Truck/2021 I think that almost every brand has had at least one horror story. I used to be a Mopar guy. What drove me away was the local dealer where I lived then. A dealer can make or break a company in their region but too many of them seem to be uncontrolled. I agree every brand has a horror story in their past. I left Ford over the 6.0 debacle. As the price of trucks continuesto skyrocket it becomes harder to accept an overcome a poorly designed vehicle. Yes the stakes are high to get it right the first time. When manufacturers screw up and the dealers are unable to promptly make it right,animosity and anger build quickly. Loyalty turns to hate and brands loose customers forever.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

August of 2005 I bought my F150 4x4 Lariat with every option available and paid $36k, financed by Ford's no interest loan. Today it has 77,500 miles. Drove to South Central Oregon a few weeks ago and it averaged 18.5 MPG; around town 13.5 MPG. When towing TT, it blesses me with 9-10 MPG, even more if I didn't drive 60-65 MPH. My brother in law just paid $75k for his new "used" F250. WTF I say.... I'm not trying to justify your bro. in laws purchase $75K is a lot for a F250. But there is really no comprison betwen a 2020 F250 and a 2005 F-150. Your talking apples and oranges and 16 years of technology. My point is a used F250 (also decked out with all the options) is selling for twice what I paid for my F150, 16 years ago. You are right, "no comprison betwen" the two. Ff you don't consider price there is still no comparison betwen those 2 trucks. Yes they are both Ford pick ups but that is where the comparison ends.

RE: Surge Protector - Hardwired without transfer switch?

No need for a transfer switch. Do get one with a bypass switch. It appears that Hughes now makes a better surge protector than either Surge Guard or P.I. https://hughesautoformers.com/power-watchdog-smart-surge-protectors/ I was likng the newer Hughes units until it was mentioned they do not have a bypass switch. On a hardwired unit no by pass would be a deal breaker for me.

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

Dad of Four Girls wrote: For those that say I will lose money, I appreciate your comments. I have been successful selling vehicles that I purchased because of pricing. I had contemplated a 1500 Silverado with the 3.0 Dmax, but that seemed to have a risky resale. I believe that 3500 HD Dmax will not have resale risk. And besides, if the economy tanks, and nobody can afford to buy a truck, I will have a really nice pickup. I agree worst case you wll have a nice pick up. The whole chip shortage has created an unprecedented marketplace. The industry has never endured or seen a chip shortage. I do think it is a bit more risky to buy and sell right now. Ask the dealers what they are going through. More importantly no one knows how this plays out or how long it plays out. Buying with the idea of selling in a year is a questionable idea in this marketplace. It is surely not a slam dunk ..good luck I hope it works out again your insurance is you'll have a nice truck you do not have to take a loss. We are living in strange times.

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

Darker colors hold heat, show dirt and show paint fade faster. THe above sort of sums it up. I will add dark colors look best when they are clean! Not sure how any of our comments on looks impact resale?...LOL

RE: Endurance Tires

OP, this sure seems like something you can figure out without asking the Internet forums opinion… But since you did, I’m not in the habit of tossing new tires in the garbage. I’d run them for a while. Hope that helped! Lol. I made that run them awhile mistake with my cheap OEM tires. I ended up with a blowout. Luckily there was minimal residual damage caused by the blowout. Toss out those cheap new tires now. A blowout and the potential for body damage is not worth the risk.
