RE: New 2024 Chevy HD and Increased Dmax Power

I think ( JUST MY OPINION ) that this is a good looking upgrade for GM..... AND, I am curious how the GCW Alert will work out ?? https://i.imgur.com/Ju2ZPd2l.png Interesting feature. Can't help but wonder if the truck records these numbers while towing for future reference by the dealer or other motives in the event of an accident. It would be pretty hard for most people to exceed that rating

RE: New 2024 Chevy HD and Increased Dmax Power

I can't wait to see the prices. The GMC version is up $2K+ on the 2023 over the 2022 across the board which they hid most of in the option and package selection. By 2024 they'll be passing down the new corporate tax that kicks in on January 1st, because corporations do not pay taxes, the folks who buy their products do. The Siverado is pushing $62K right now for a nicely loaded LT, the middle-of-the-road on trim scale with gas engine. The transmission shop guys will love the 10 speed mated to the gas 6.6, at least they sure do with the 1500s, the Allison it isn't. The larger touchscreen and electronics shown are available right now in the 23 GMC AT4 and Denali trims, the AT4s start @ $82K with the gas 6.6.The 1500 ten speed is not what’s in the HD trucks

RE: New 2024 Chevy HD and Increased Dmax Power

Here's the new Chevy HD truck... Gas engine now gets the 10 speed transmission Diesel engine 455HP 950 TQ I'll reserve comments on the looks department later. Link Fish this is a tired old theme with you. We all know and understand, that the only good looking truck to you... Has a Ford emblem on the grill. Move on to something else, or become irrealavent. Thought the 08-10 Super Duty's looked hideous and I typically don't comment on looks after a few days. I will say this truck looks a lot better than the previous HD trucks in which I refuse to spend my money on an ugly truck and dare I say I like this one. I do hope GM ditches the wax coated frame and goes to a e coating. You are entitled to your opinion, but I do recall your comment on the spy photo of the '17 Super Duty to all the Ford truck owners. Funny how selective memory works!I made one comment in jest You have made Many Once can be funny Many is not

RE: New Maxxis tires

I have used all manner of Chinese tires. The trailer weighs 5,000 pounds. I have pulled from Utah to the East Coast and back without a single issue. I have had no troubles with any Chinese tires I have used. I have used at LEAST 4 DIFFERENT BRANDS. I ALWAYS MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THE NYLON CAP. I DON'T CURB HOP, RUN OVER 65 MPH, DO TIGHT TURNS, AND ALWAYS CHECK MY INFLATION. According to some I am so lucky I should buy a lottery ticket! I suspect it just common sense. The last tries were Greenball @ $68.00/each plus install.From 2006 to 2021, I did all of those bad things and more to my TTs tires without a single issue. Since I am in Phoenix AZ, which is brutal on rubber, I do not push the age. I get new tires every 5 years... Other than that, my secret??? I ran LT tires. Michelin XPS RIBS. I abused the snot out of them and they took it in stride. Go with LTs and stop making excuses for your tires.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

This is why I say drive a Tesla and you won't see a long term future for those companies either. Note its not just Tesla, all the auto makers have committed to electric and have plans to quit producing ICE cars. All the scuttle butt, debate and chatter we go through proclaiming are ICE vehicles will be around forever may make us feel better. But forever is about 50 years tops. I imagine Kids born today will witness the extinction of ICE vehicles. Keep in mind the extinction of ICE does not have to be the end of camping and RV'ing. All vehicles as we know them will carry over and transform. The gloom and doom of 100 mile limitations etc. will not exist.And that is a VERY BIG bet.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

And what have they DONE? Oil company profits are close to record highs. It doesn't look like anyone is putting them out of business anytime soon. I pay attention to what is really happening. Not just the headlines. I subscribe to The Wall street journal and read it daily. The interesting thing about those record profits is that the stocks are really cheap. That is for a few reasons. Investors do not see a future for those companies. And Biden and a lot of congress want to take those profits away via a "windfall tax" Justified by the fact that they are not investing that money into expanding production! The oil companies seeing a bleak future are actually acting in a responsible manner by wanting to do share buybacks and/or increase dividends. IOW, returning some of the investors (actually owners) money to them. The govt. wants them to spend that money now on production and let the investors take the loss later when they decide they do not need the oil companies anymore.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

THIS is what Biden said about oil companies in 2020. He later clarified his position as Biden’s campaign pointed us to the policy on Biden’s campaign website of "banning new oil and gas permitting on public lands and waters." It says nothing about drilling on private land. Doing away with oil in the near future would set the world back 150 years without new technologies to replace it. Think of all the products we use every day that are derived from oil. Think about it peopleI listen to what politicians say I PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT THEY DO!! For almost 2 years now, the fossil fuels have been under attack. I wonder how many new millionares will be created in congress because of these actions? Ever notice how rare it is fo a rich person to enter politics, and how rare it is for a politician to leave holding a tin cup? Just about all of them become extremely wealthy while in office.

^^^ Well I guess you can't use the excuse of advanced age to explain it. Age has nothing to do with wisdom. A pessimist sees the glass as half empty A optimist sees it as half full A realist sees the glass as too big.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

Hunting Dog The ONLY articles I could find re banks not loaning to oil companies, is in relation to "where and how" they are drilling. If the drilling etc was bad for the environment etc, they are being asked not to loan on these types of endeavors. But if its a cleaner way of getting oil out of the ground, environmentally sensitive to not harming the environment, then loan away! While I realize some may not agree with this stance, I personally feel BIG OIL etc can do a better job getting the oil we need, and not harming the environment as bad as they have. Biden may very well be saying this basic statement too. I have not found, nor looked for a quote of any nature by him in this regard. MartyI watched it on TV yesterday. Some members of the squad were roasting this banker. I turned it off in disgust. And the "green" movement thinks that there is no such thing as responsible drilling.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

Why do you think that?I figure you are at least mid 60s, climate change denial seems to be most prevalent in elderly males. Anyway, how about a link to Biden saying he wants to put fossil fuel companies out of business. Obviously we all want that eventually but I'd be interested to know what he thinks for a time frame.Well you figured wrong. You do know what happens when you make assumptions?

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

Hunting dog The chance of current POTUS, CA or WA gov getting rid of fossil fuels anytime soon is a real fat chance. The world as a whole is too dependent on fossil fuels to be rid of them in the next 13 years until 2035. Heck, both states have been trying to get rid of copper based bottom paint for boats by 2020. Less than 10% of bottom paint is copper free where I work. Yes percentage is getting higher for copper free. Percentages lower in copper. But at the moment, copper is still the best pesticide for salt water use. The options are not safer yet for the environment. We're probably 2 decades before EVs can claim they've made significant headway. For me, realistically, I may be close to calling driving quits by then. Better to sit back and relax, deal with other issues that frankly effect me more than EVs will. MartyDid you see the bankers getting grilled on the hill today? They are being told to not have any business dealings with fossil fuel companies. They are being attacked from all sides.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

The Californian law doesn’t affect pickups over 8500 GVWR. If you prefer a larger RV you’ll still be able to buy a gas or diesel truck to tow it in 2035.That is what it is so far. The way the wind is blowing, it will just get more restrictive.... And you did not address the rest of my post. Biden flat out said he wants to put the fossil fuel companies out of business. And he is backing that up with his actions. So yes, we will be prevented from buying a gas/diesel shortly... Nobody will produce them if the fuel is not available. The only hope is if a change is made in our govt.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

I could carry that little camper in the garage of my Momentum with room to spare. Might even be able to fit a couple of them in it. As for nobody is making us choose otherwise... Where have you been? Entire states are contemplating joining California in outlawing ICEs.Our government is taking actions to purposely drive up the price of fuel while trying to "put the oil companies out of business."(Biden stated exactly that.) "Nobody is trying to make us choose EVs." Are you dreaming? I'll wager that by 2035 you won't need to worry about a tow vehicle.:S Why do you think that?

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

Meh, this whole only being able to tow 100 miles and then having to charge thing is bogus. That’s for a specific size, profile and weight of trailer. There are thousands of EV RVers on the Facebook towing groups who are getting double that towing smaller, low profile and lighter trailers. There are lots of different sized RV’s. If you have a bigger trailer with a larger profile then stick with gas or diesel. Nobody is making you choose otherwise. But for those towing smaller RV’s you simply have a third option. Towing with an EV is a very good experience. Torque, power, centre of gravity and braking are just a few of the advantages of towing with electric. Personally I think the towing ranges will double in the next 5 years. Maybe sooner. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52204803650_28727cdd0e_c.jpgI could carry that little camper in the garage of my Momentum with room to spare.

RE: Do you need to sanitize a water tank that's never been used?

Sanitizing does waste a lot of water. I did it once, in my first used TT. It took MANY flushes to get the bleach smell out of it. And yes I followed the instructions in the manual as to how to do it. My subsequent coaches have all been new. I have never sanitized any of them. I do use good city water, which has some free chorine in it.We do not drink it or make ice, brush our teeth etc. with it. We bring along a few cases of bottled water for that. No issues in 30 years. I suppose if ones water source is suspect then it might be a prudent thing to do.

RE: Dino juice v Electrons....

The latest li polymer battery can recharge in just 5 minutes. It is not in production yet. No information on cold weather use.That statement is useless without specifics on the battery...If it is a AAA size, that would not be newsworthy at all

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I work for a major grocery chain. We own a lot of trucks. They roll 24/7. Drivers are scheduled around the clock. So even though these are generally short runs, refuel down time will slow down operations. This has a snowball effect in the warehouse which can get backed up when trucks are not available to move product out.Is there diesel fuel at the warehouse?We are nationwide, so I can only speak for my location. Yes.
