RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

We're late to the party. Left Wisconsin straight south this Monday (while it's snowing of course), and didn't see any rvs that day for 460 miles. Started seeing a few getting near Arkansas (mostly new ones for delivery). Many more on I-30. Almost halfway to our first destination, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, but taking a couple days off near Dallas now. JK Have you been to Organ Pipe before? Just curious. We pass by there a few times a year. This will be our 3rd time there. Staying a whole week this time.

RE: Price breaks on new Pickups?!

I just saw the window sticker for my June ordered pick up. The MSRP has gone up $3k since June in Canada and I'm not aware of any incentives. That's been going on for awhile. When I was truck shopping in 2018 on the Ram website, identical trucks had different prices on the window stickers....the higher VIN was a higher price. Sometimes the base price went up usually certain options went up. But prices change throughout the model year. And always up!

RE: Grand Wagoneer vs RAM 1500

I saw a Grand Wagoneer in my dealer's showroom last week. That thing was about 7 feet tall and had a sticker of $112k. I was scared to touch it! JK

RE: AGM battery

The real question is why bother for a starting battery. The main advantage of AMG is they don't spill if you roll them over. Great on a boat or a stunt plane...not so much for a starting battery. I would say the biggest reason is that they are maintenance free. A lot of people these days don't even know how to open the hood. JK

RE: Replace OEM fuel tank?

I had the Titan 52 gallon replacement tank installed a year ago last September. About $1700 w/tax. It hangs down about 3" lower, and the gauge works differently, but no regrets. JK

RE: T or C, NM to Bisbee, AZ via I-10 and Hwy 80

We've taken hwy 80 from Rodeo, NM down through Douglas to Tombstone and beyond a couple years ago with our 13'3" tall rig. No problem. JK

RE: Calculated MPG

I also am one of them. I track fuel mileage on all vehicles and on trips I track expenses for fuel, campsites, and total expenses so I know average total cost per day. I love watching the average campsite cost go down when boondocking! Luckily, I don't have to worry about expenses, it's just fun to me. On the other hand, we went to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta through Fantasy rv Tours last fall, and that $600/night really screwed up the average for that whole trip. JK

RE: RV Site UP Michigan - Finger Lakes

I'm not a water or boat or ship person at all, but we were at the Shipwreck Museum in Whitefish Point a few years ago, and the story boards they have there were extremely interesting to me. JK

RE: Price breaks on new Pickups?!

I was at the Ram dealer this week for oil change, fuel filters, transfer case fluid change. The last time I was there, in July, they only had one vehicle in the showroom, a 1500 pickup. This week they had a Challenger ($55,000),a Grand Cherokee Trackhawk ($97,000), and a Grand Wagoneer Series III ($112,000). That Wagoneer was close to 7 feet tall! I didn't see any sale price on any of them. JK

RE: Trekkers Alert: If you're a Star Trek fan...

Too bad, we will be in the area in March. But... my wife gave me the complete set of TNG for Christmas, in Blu Ray!

RE: LiFePo4 vs Lead Acid...Some points of interest.

OK to delete the tracking, marketing referral and search data after the item number... https://www.amazon.com/Lithium-LiFePO4-Battery-Perfect-Trolling/dp/B09N6Q9ML9 Wow! This company is Energy Lions. Easy to confuse with the more established Lion Energy. Even the lion head emblem is similar. Still, a lithium battery with a BMS for under $300. Too good to be true?

RE: LiFePo4 vs Lead Acid...Some points of interest.

Yeah, I was waiting for this to start... But as poor basic grammar becomes more common, it will become the norm, and eventually, accepted. What was this thread about??? JK

RE: Portable surge protector

In my signature you can see over 400 nights spent in our rv, and over 300 of them were plugged in with our PI PT50X. When I bought it I also got a cable and lock, and used it at first, then stopped bothering. Nothing ever got stolen and I've never heard of one getting stolen. JK

RE: Is all DEF the same?

It's been well established in the muscle car community that Fram makes about the worst oil filter you can buy. Can you trust them with anything else? (FWIW, I buy Baldwin oil filters) JK

RE: Slide out broken

Agreed. Follow your battery positive cable. It may go to what looks like a terminal. That may be the circuit breaker that skibane is talking about. On my Open Range there are 2 of them and they are called a Shortstop circuit breaker. Mine are 50 amp and are automatic resets. Some are manual resets. They do fail, so I carry a spare. Good luck! JK

RE: Simplest battery monitor and shunt? Advice for non-expert

This monitor is the one I have. It is an awesome little unit. I had one of these a couple years ago, and it was ok for some basic information, but I had a hard time setting up some of the parameters. I ended up giving it away after I had my solar system installed. But for $30, not much to lose. JK

RE: Looking for small fifth wheel, no bunks

We just love our Open Range floorplan (31.5'), though I'm always looking for something that may be our next rig down the road that would be 34' or less. One thing that many manufacturers do is put the dinette, along with most its windows, on the wrong side. To me, sitting at the table looking at my neighbor's site would be a deal breaker. Although a little long at 34.5', the closest I've found that checks pretty much all our boxes is the Evergreen Bay Hill 295rl. Too bad they're out of business. JK PS... Opening the slide to access the fridge only takes about 10 seconds, we do it all the time.

RE: Generators: Cummins 4500 vs Westinghouse vs. ?????

I bought the Champion 3100/2800 in 2018,and it does perform well, but is louder than I expected. I wish I bought a Honda. JK
