RE: Dealing with pet passing while on the road

If you are wanting to take the remains home, then consider cremation. Typically can be done in a couple of days depending on the provider. Or if longer, they may ship the remains to your home for you. We lost our "Georgie Girl" 2 years ago when we were in Arizona for several months. When I asked the vet about cremation and wether the ashes were in fact really our Girls ashes his answer was "We try to have some of her ashes " They did multiple animal cremations. So ask the question when making the decision about cremation. I agree. From https://www.oneworldmemorials.com/blogs/news/83394438-pet-cremation-and-pet-ashes There are three types of pet cremation: private, comingled, and partitioned. In a private cremation, only one animal's body is in the oven. During a partitioned cremation, multiple animals may be in the incinerator at the same time, but they are separated so that the remains from each can be collected separately. Some "active comingling" of remains is unavoidable. Communal cremation is the burning of several animals at once, without any form of separation.

RE: Best places to park the TT @ Yellowstone

Are you wanting full hookups, partial hookups, or no hookups? Or don’t care?

RE: Charging electric car

Takes a lot of power, ideally a 240 vac/50 amp outlet. Good description at this link.

RE: Large dog

Our various 80-85 lb Golden Retrievers have traveled with us since we bought our 5er in 2007. They love their walks. But they also love their naps. Take them for a long walk before we go out, they go into a dark corner of the bedroom and lay down, and that is where they are when we return. Pretty much typical for Goldens. But never gone more that about 3 hours, same as home. But we have camped beside people whose dogs have barked from the time they left to sightsee until they returned hours later. That’s not good for the dogs or the neighbors.

RE: 2020 Ram 2500/3500: MotorTrend Truck of the Year

kinda surprising with both ford and gm offering new powerplants. Seems to me that it is a different truck every year. If one was any better than the others there would consistently be repeat winners. Just a way to sell magazines because it creates controversy. The owners of that truck love to brag about it. The owners of the other brands love to complain about it.

RE: Will solid state batteries change the world?

Ford just introduced their new all electric Mustang with up to 459 HP, depending on model. And a range up to 300 miles on current battery technology. Obviously these manufacturers feel a battery breakthrough is imminent.

RE: what kind of batteries do i have?

If the batteries have vent/filler caps, a 6 volt will have 3 caps and a 12 volt will have 6 caps.

RE: do you do this

Never have. Last set of tires replaced after 8 years due to age. Parked on crushed rock in covered storage and typically never moved from late Oct til April. And they still looked nearly new with about 22,000 miles on them.

RE: Electric vehicles

The only thing holding back electric vehicles is a new and significant advancement in battery technology. When, and if, that happens then there will be a rapid advancement in electric vehicles for all uses. Power is not an issue. Battery is.

RE: Sticker shock

Here is an idea. Why don't you guys who obviously know everything about how these service shops should be run, start your own. You will obviously be rich nearly overnight and us dummies will never have to wait to make an appointment again while we enjoy your cheap prices!:R Exactly. Unless you have owned a business you have no idea the multitude of overhead costs that must be covered by means of the income you collect before you can even think about a profit for yourself. I think the biggest issue most people have is the "estimate" price that shops give... it rarely includes all the add-ons, such as "shop rags" and disposal fees. So if you are given an estimate of $500 for mechanical work, then have it done, you end up paying like $650 due to add-ons and fees. That is what upsets / annoys most people. Guess it depends on where you take it. Had my truck in to my Ford dealer for some work last week. Service advisor told me over the phone what it would cost. Picked it up next day and invoice as exactly what he said. That has always been the case.

RE: Rear Hitch Bike Rack for Travel Trailer

Agree with above. Have been behind many TTs and 5ers with rear bike racks. Some ride smoothly. Some bounce violently. And there have been a number of posts on here and other sites about the hitch and/or bike rack failing and either dragging the bike(s) or losing them altogether. I suspect most people with rear bike racks have no idea what is going on back there unless they have taken a highway test drive and had some one watch from behind to see.

Yes, it will just blow that water into the black tank.

RE: Dont discuss GS

I have seen, in the past, that once the OP's question is answered, the topic is closed. Unfortunately, GS, GSRA, etc, the canned response send us your contact information, or here's a phone number to call. I suppose that's the answer for the OP, so the topic is closed. Yes, it doesn't leave much room for additional discussion, but consider, ... the question is directed to the GSRA team, not to those of us using the forum. In essense, the OP's question was answered. If we want a good lively discussion, then the question should not be directed to the GSRA team, rather... something like ... "What does everyone think about GSRA and what has been your experience with XXX?" Something like that will generate conversation and should not call for a "closed topic" scenario. Well, that my 2 cents anyway! I agree. It does not benefit anyone, including the OP or GS, to continue the thread. The resolution is handled off line as it should be.

RE: Are RV shows worth it?

The shows typically have a few models of a lot of different manufacturers. And a few models of each type, MH, TT, 5er, PUP, etc. A large dealer will typically have a few different brands, but likely more floorplans of each brand. And some dealers specialize in MHs, some in TTs, some in 5ers, etc. So it is really a matter of what you want to see, a few samples of a lot of manufacturers, or more samples of manufacturers that you are primarily interested in, a specific type RV, or a random sample of multiple types of RV.
