RE: Charging trailer battery while towing and smart charging

I run a 2 gauge dedicated run between my truck and trailer and use Anderson connectors for the link at the receiver.

RE: Charging trailer battery while towing and smart charging

Start by running a heavy dedicated charge line between the truck and trailer. It will help in trickle and maintenance charging. If you want more, later you can add a DC to DC charger off this new run line.

RE: Dual pane windows....

Our last two campers have had dual pane windows and we like them over the single pane of the past. Arctic Fox used to a have storm window option but you could not open your windows with them in place. I think these would provide even better temperature and sound insulation but the hassle was not worth trying them.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

Because some people's work day does not allow for overnight trickle charging between discharges?

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

100 lbs is not that bad, but you should try load heavier items forward of the axle or in the cabover.

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

burningman, I mentioned that the distribution of weight on the front and rear axles can change. That can be measured by going to a scale that records weight by axle. How do you measure effective COG? If your front axle gains weight, your CG is good. If it loses weight, it is behind your rear axle.

RE: Buying 2019 RAM 3500 DRW - discount expectations?

you guys that pay almost sticker I laugh at. 65k out the door is a good deal for me if the dealer wants it gone. I,m not paying any more than I have too. worked in auto sales for 6yrs they can come down a whole lot more than you think. this money off invoice is a selling point for them. not the price they really paid for the go laugh all you want been there paid less. Maybe you can disclose some of these dealer margins or a method for others to access them? My last Ram purchase showed that dealer invoice was 9 percent off the MSRP base and 15 percent off options and packages. I could not find information on additional incentives to the dealership, but I did scrounge up all the rebates I could apply and still get an additional $500 off.

RE: Buying 2019 RAM 3500 DRW - discount expectations?

"Dealer invoice" price with no additional fees minus an additional $500 and applicable rebates applied on top of this number. You will still need to pay tax and license.

RE: '83 Toyota pickup start trouble in cold, wet weather

Wasn't your '83 the last year of the 22R carbureted engine? Clean your idle jet and inspect your vacuum lines.

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

You've been listening to Daryle?

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

A plug in hybrid would work well as a tow vehicle, but the weight, cost and complexity makes it hard to recover any savings unless driven high mileage. I would like see regenerative braking take over friction based brakes so there would no longer be a need for a discs, drums, shoes or pads - I'm not sure if we can completely get away from conventional brake systems yet...

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

Because the Cybertruck will not be available for two or three years and I posted about actual reports available today, you must realize that those losses are for current EV's. I'm not sure if you are baiting or if you did not comprehend my post. Current technology will result in a range depreciation of 50-70 percent. If you have actual owner feedback showing the opposite, I'm sure there are plenty of members that would like to study that. If you are buying on speculation that technology will be at a point of only 30-50 percent range reduction by the time you purchase your truck, then state that this where you think the progression will lead.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

Wow, I almost asked Elon to refund my hard-earned $100 for the Cybertruck with all the ghosts found under the hood of this truck. Until wait, problem with 30 to 50% power drain on Cybertruck. My ICE is worst at more than 50% reduced mpg when towing. I can only go 200 miles in full charge when towing. Wait, that my regular stops for gas up and lunch on my camping trips. I'll have problems with off roading? How, it will have a ton more torque and ground clearance? The bullet proof glass shattered? Who cares, I'm not going to Texas anyways. The looks, oh yeah, it still have not grown into me yet. Anyone, wants to buy for $5,000 my high-priority place in order-reservation queue? Real world towing is showing a range of 30-50 percent verses unloaded. The reduction is 50-70 percent. BTW: My diesel has a 30 percent reduction when under load verses unloded.

RE: extra fresh water

Extended boon docking, we shower and wash dishes outside. We are usually limited by my vacation time off rather than tank capacity.

She is definitely blonde. No one bought one but plenty have placed reservations.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

I don't know if that bed would hold my 210cm slalom or 215cm crosscountry skis. I don't always want to use my 165cm shorties.

RE: Buying a used diesel

I guess I am another one that was happy with a 6.0 PSD for 10 years. You hear about them so much simply due to the volume they sold.

RE: Step upgrade for my Arctic Fox

I've also been thinking about how to use the stairs (when not mounted) as a standalone step stool that could be moved anywhere around the truck or camper.

RE: RVND 7710 GPS No More Maps

Garmin can use OpenStreetMap for updated maps. Perhaps your RVND can import these types of updates?

RE: WiFi Hot Spot App

The old Galaxy SIII we just retired had native hotspot capability, so it may be a carrier restriction that requires you to use third party applications. If you are trying to keep your phone lean and clean, you may want to look if you can unlock it from the original carrier and get that native feature enabled.
