RE: Will my truck tow safely in the Smokys?

I had a 2000 Silverado with 5.7 and 3.73 rear. Pulled a 6500 Gvwr 24ft fifth wheel and pulled fine around here. I would think that something 17 years newer would have a bit more hp and with the 6 speed trans would work just fine around here.

RE: Time for new tires?

RE: My Amazing 12-year old battery...

Replaced original batteries in 12 year old truck right after Turkey Day this year. Living in NE PA usually replaced in 3 years.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

When I bought my last vehicle I had to make 3 payments or the bank would remove the loan from the dealers portfolio. Last car I bought F&I guy told me I had to wait 3 months to pay it off or prepayment penalty. Right on contract, it stated no prepayment penalty(may be state law.) Paid it off 1st month. Found out later F%I guy does not get commission if paid off before 3 months.

RE: Yellow window frame on door. Ugly. What to do?

Plain old bleach will turn it white but will yellow again. I painted mine.

RE: tire question

Being overloaded and a tire blowing does not prove a tire blowing from being overloaded.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

Does anybody know how much time the networks commit to commercials? I did time the commercial time on Gold Rush one night-21 minutes. If I see a movie that I like on TV, I will buy it used on Ebay for 4-5 dollars rather than watch all the commercials on TV movies.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

From what I can tell, most "cord cutters" seem to totally ignore the mere fact of the cost of the Internet service that YOU directly pay for when adding up their savings. You NEED to add that cost in to make a good comparison of services and IF you will really see any savings.. Something else to consider, Internet providers will also increase rates to cover new faster technology so don't expect your Internet cost to stay low as streaming traffic causes more congestion I would guess that most folks are like me and have had internet a long time before going to streaming. Even with DTV I had internet so no I don't pay that internet cost for streaming.

RE: Starlink supposedly will be available in 2020

Timmac has taken a gulp of the koolaid, but after switching from DTV to streaming I don't it was a big of gulp as I originally thought.

RE: Tires Date

2 of the original tires are still on my vehicle which would make them 11-12 years old.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway

Be aware there is no fuel available anywhere ON the Parkway. You will have to leave the Parkway for fuel. Don't know about it know but used to be gas station by Pisgah Inn.

RV electrical

Plugged in power cord. Everything worked for about 5 minutes then everything quit except microwave. I forgot I had the battery disconnected. After connecting the battery everything worked fine. Question: Why did everything work when first plugged in but quit five minutes later? If the battery is needed to run DC why did everything work for 5 minutes without battery? Signs of a bad converter? Thoughts would be appreciated.

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

Internet is the new better way and cheaper per month than cable/satellite.. Says the man who has better than 5mps internet at $55/mo. How I wish I could dump DTV!

RE: getting schocked by door/electrical issue urgent

When mine was doing that(20v from bumper to wet cement)it was the adapter. You could see where the connection was black on one of the legs.

RE: ROI Converting Fluorescents to LED

At home, when one of my under-cabinet T5 fluorescent fixtures has a bad ballast, I look at the cost and power savings of replacing with a LED fixture, Just get an LED bulb that will fit in present fixture and cutout the ballast.

RE: Beware of credit card scam

A very good reason to always use a credit card. How would they have charged him if he used cash?
