RE: A New truck is born!

Maybe I missed it but is it a DRW 2wd? it is a 4x4. Staus went to 4200 (shipped) a couple of weeks ago. So it made it on a train before the virus shutdown.. But my sources have now gone quiet. I hope this virus thing doesn't hold it up somehow. Mine came in Monday morning and in my hands by noon. I'd expect yours most any day now. There was another guy on a GM forum in western Canada that had the same build week and he got his the same day as I. For anyone splitting hairs, my 2500 weighs 8273 lbs with a payload of 3077 as per door sticker.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

If I was the OP and concerned about catching the virus, the last place I would want to go right now is the New York metro area which has by far the most cases. Why not just hang out where you are for a bit. I can say that there was a guy charged with violating the stay at home order here in Ohio locally and I can also say the guy went to jail. (See how juicy it is when I leave out certain details like the typical media report?) The rest of the story is he was arrested at Target for shoplifting about $800 worth of Apple stuff and they just tacked the stay at home violation on top since shoplifting is not an essential activity. I'm sure it will all be plea bargained away anyhow. Did anyone happen to catch the news that the guy who did the study in the UK that stated 2 million dead in the US if we don't do anything has revised his numbers? You know, that study that triggered the whole world to go into lockdown? Yeah...... he says he may have made a mistake with his calculations and revised his number to 20,000, less than even a minor flu season. Headline news on CNN and MSNBC I bet. No?? This is a nasty bug, but not nearly as bad as we have been led to believe. The numbers are not following the worst case scenario many have been swallowing whole. It will be OK, this will pass and soon. On a side note about the RV net crowd, just an observation. The ones most concerned and calling for the most strict solutions about the virus in this thread are the same folks who think we might only have 12 years left anyway. Hmmmmm

RE: Gasoline vs Battery Energy Density Explained

Problem with ice engine is, NOT a single auto maker cares about improving its eficiency. There are plenty of inventions out there but no one cares about using it Heres one https://www.hotrod.com/articles/hrdp-1009-what-ever-happened-to-smokeys-hot-vapor-engine/ Heres another http://www.coatesengine.com/ Why doesnt anyone put those on their engines? I tell you why,,they want drivers to burn as much gasoline as posible bc thats how they make money! Lets face it electric motor is 99% eficient and gasoline cant ever compete. Once EVs become affordable for everyone fosil fuel is dead. Amazing that not one enterprising company is interested in such proven technologies. Why would they? Who wants to buy a car that uses 50% less fuel than the competition? It would be crazy to produce such a vehicle, would never sell! BTW, where is the link to the 100 MPG carburetor?

Where is my 100 mpg carburetor? Still being suppressed by big oil I guess.

RE: GM 400-mile battery

Electric cars, trucks and motorhomes will be standard by 2030.. Cars sounds correct, majority electric by 2030. Motorhomes, not happening anytime soon. Trucks will be a mixed bag, serious towing trucks that travel a lot will require fuel. Citified grocery getting mall crawlers will be electric. We would have bought an electric car for the wife as a commuter except they are all tiny and ugly (IMHO) at the moment. Hopefully they won't all be minivan/wannabe SUV snails or cars made for 5'2" buyers.

RE: Thoughts on the 'need' factor of a main line surge protector

people will spend $5000 for FBP to impress the neighbors but not a bumpy FBP ??? I tried, came up with federal bureau of prisons. Friends of Border Patrol?

RE: GM trucks will get updated interiors like 2021 tahoe

The camera view in the rear view mirror is very hi res and you can see more than one might expect and certainly more than the mirror itself shows. It is also a regular mirror. My initial issue with it is I can't focus very well at close distance, so it would be more useful for the 30 yr old me. The GM 360 camera system is superior to the current Ford or Ram system in both resolution and programming/function.

RE: Fords new 7.3 Godzilla

You get 3.73 or 4.30 with the 7.3 if you get an F-350. You also get the 10 spd with the 6.2 in a 350.

RE: 2020 Chevy 2500/3500 trucks

I've probably read every magazine and website review on those trucks out there. A lot of conflicting and inconsistent info, much of it is wrong based on what I have observed at the dealer. (Don't ask the salesman, they are worse!) I think the writer got confused as to what is upgraded from previous years vs what is upgraded between a 2500/3500 for 2020. Minimal difference between a SRW 2500 or 3500, (springs and ratings) and as mentioned the dually gets a larger rear gear. Watch some of the videos from the truck announcement last winter or at the media drive event last June where they had engineers out talking about the trucks.

RE: Pick up truck remembrance !

My brother still has our dad's 1972 GMC 2500 he bought new. I was 11 at the time. 350 and 4 spd manual, loaded with power steering, power brakes and an AM radio. It's rusty and crusty, but still more or less trusty. That one came with 16.5's, but has 16's now.

RE: Ohio's New Online Reservation System!

k. As to why they do it, things are much more straightforward for them if everyone is in the system with their sites. The rangers then can walk or drive around and readily compare the physically occupied sites to the ones that are known to be reserved and see if anyone is camping without paying, or in the wrong site, or whatever. It also should help avoid problems with more than one party claiming the same site, whether done accidentally or maliciously. I have never seen or even heard of an issue with people in the wrong sites. Maybe it happens, but it has to be rare. Not so sure this is all that more effective, usually if something is wrong, it's the computer. I personally see no reason for rangers or whoever to be that particular about who is where as long as everyone is happy. As to the new website, wow is it SLOW!!!!! I wrote my letter.

RE: how do dey do dat ?

The trailer camera is hard wired. For it to work, it has to be mounted in a specific spot about 4 " above the level of the tailgate camera. Might work on a door if there is space with it folded down. Flatbed or a boat you would need to rig up some sort of removable mount. https://www.shopchevyparts.com/electronics/2020-silverado-2500-invisible-trailer-camera-auxiliary-trailer-camera-models-with-cwm-pdm-uvn/84876818-p-92305265.html
