RE: Durango, CO to Red River, NM

Wolf Creek Pass is east of Pagosa Springs. They will be heading south. But they could head on over to Alamosa or Ft. Garland and then head south to Red River. And they did ask about alternate routes. I haven’t driven to Red River by either of those so can’t comment on them.

RE: Back before cellphones

Cell phones are great. But the addiction some people have to them is a little concerning and more than a little annoying.

RE: GS portal

Try the trailer life portal. Seems a lot less problem prone than the portal.

RE: Iginuity at it best

Can you imagine how much those rear tires are going to skid on a turn? And the stress on the axle, tires, and wheels, especially if they load up the platform?

RE: gas shortages along Interstates

Can you make it from campground to campground without stops for fuel? That would make it easier to decide since you could more easily go searching for stations with fuel after you stop. Maybe carry some extra fuel in the back of the truck.

The payload rating of the truck is always the important thing to look at. If the payload rating of the truck exceeds the pin weight of the trailer and the "stuff" you carry in the truck, then the SRW is all you need. Payload ratings of any truck, SRW or DRW, varies a lot depending on configuration; cab, bed, engine, drive train, even wheels/tire size. The boat does not add to the 5er pin weight. In fact, it will actually reduce the pin weight some amount since that weight is sitting on the back of the 5er. Do your homework on numbers.

RE: New Montana purchase

The C&T is certainly a trip to look forward to. If you don’t already have reservations I suggest you ride the train from Antonito to Chama and the bus Chama to Antonito. Reverse would still be great, just a little anticlimactic at the end of the train ride. Antonito is in high arid semi desert and the train slowly begins a climb from there up into the mountains and gorges and over the passes.

RE: Holes in exhaust

Agree. Muffler shop will custom form new pipes and fit a new muffler to them. Far too many variations to try to stock ready made pipes. Not like the old days when you could order a new muffler and tailpipe from the Sears catalogue. :B

RE: Adding 12V outlet questions (did I do it right)

12 vdc times 10 amps equals 120 watts. 120 vac times 1 amp equals 120 watts. So in the perfect world you could run a 120 watt inverter. BUT. There are power losses involved in the inverter meaning you would only be able to run something less than 120 watts out of the inverter without popping the fuse. So you can count on maybe getting 3/4 amp or so of 120 vac out of the inverter.

RE: New Montana purchase

Like so many other chain stores, it all depends on management. Some great, some poor, most somewhere in between. They all have their own methods. BUT. Camping World does seem to get more than its share of complaints. But that also seems to be common to larger chains. The more stores the more likely to hear complaints simply because of numbers.

RE: post disappeared??

It’s on page 3 of “Active” posts. If you click on “Newest” you only see threads that originated in the last 24 hours. So you will not see your post. If you click on “Active” you see only all posts that have had any activity in the last 24 hours. So it is still there. And you can always click on “My Forums”, followed by clicking on “My Posts” and find all your old posts as far back as a year.

RE: Wiring of parabolic heating elements.

With 3 posts it would seem to be a dual heat element with a 400 watt portion and an 800 watt portion where you could energize just the 400 watt post, or just the 800 watt post, or energize both posts for 1200 watts. You should be able to ohm it out to see if that is correct.

RE: This should help with future GM EV tow vehicles.

Seems to be like most big companies: marketing and engineering rarely each other. :) Well they do. But it is after engineering finds out what marketing told the customers. Then the discussions are best held behind closed doors. :B

RE: Houston toll roads

All that technology and they still send bills in the mail. If you don’t have an account with them they have no choice but to send the bill to the name and address of the vehicle license plate number.

RE: If it works for EV commercial trucks will it work for EVRVs

In spite of the nay sayers, its happening, gaining traction, and picking up speed. A preview of the inevitable future.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

It’s highly regional. Whether towing or not, in any specific area you will likely see more one brand than the other. I remember seeing a map one time that showed brand sales by state. And each brand dominated in certain states.

RE: GM Spokesperson admits energy to charge cars comes from coal

Unfortunately this is how most people view owning an electric car. And the ICE owners overlook how gas and diesel are made. height=500

RE: GM Spokesperson admits energy to charge cars comes from coal

They were both answering a question they had no clue about. Coal generates less than 20% of US electric power. Natural gas 50%. Renewables just under 20%. Like so many other people, they need to do their research before opening their mouth. Or start typing. :S Electric power by source

RE: Recommendation on 2nd AC

I added a 13.5K AC to the bedroom in our 34' 5er. Even in very hot weather we only use it to help cool the trailer after a long day driving in hot weather. Once cooled off, the rear 15k AC keeps it cool. So no need to run the noisier bedroom AC at night.

RE: Just an FYI about Dish

... I was surprised when I went to change to locals in the RV, after reading and research I thought that the locals could be changed at will in the RV. But you can only have locals in one location either the RV or the home address. The Pay as You Go Plan is where one can change locals..... Found that out when our daughter moved back in with us. Changed our locals to our new RV location and daughter lost locals at home. Had no way of knowing before, and didn’t matter anyway as no one as there. Changed the RV to separate pay as you go plan so I can change RV locals and still keep her happy at home.
