Still waiting to see what becomes of him bumping into the pace car. I would say a one year suspension and a gigantic fine would be in order.

RE: Speed limits

I think if they put the speed limit at 50 mph on every highway and limited the top end of every vehicle to 55 mph there would be next to zero traffic fatalities. I also think the speed limit on divided highways and many lightly travelled 2 lane highways could be 80 mph; almost all other highways could be 65 mph and the number of traffic fatalities wouldn’t change much from where we are at. I’d be ok with the latter. Edit: not sure how fast semis and RV should travel. The same speed as other traffic, not to exceed 75MPH. (That's what many truck tires are rated for.)

RE: Speed limits

And a quick observation on the "speeding cop" comments. Although I am human like everyone else and occasionally, even while on duty, would find myself travelling a couple kmh over the posted limit - almost impossible to keep under or at the limit all the time. However, I endeavoured to follow the limit, especially while in a marked pc. And would often find myself travelling down the street/highway, with a whole line of pissed off motorists following me, and a whole big empty road ahead. Follow the rules, people are angry at you, speed a bit to alleviate the traffic jam and people are pissed at you. And I should add, often a member is dispatched to a call that is not considered an emergency (so no authorized emergency equipment and higher rate of speed), but serious enough for the member to "step it up" a little. To some, he looks like he is just ignoring the speed laws, however....sometimes it's just easier to criticize. And don't get me wrong, I don't condone any officer breaking the law, just thought I would add a bit of context to the discussion. Marv In this area, typical pace for a cop on the highway is 85-90. Anyone who doesn't move over instantly gets high-beams and usually 4 spotlights shined into the car, with an Explorer a foot from their bumper.

RE: Speed limits

IMHO, you have that bass ackward. If a cop is seen in traffic running over the limit, he better explain what is more important he is doing or head for unemployment line. So you want to fire a cop for speeding? Works for me. Personally, I would be fine with the cars being unable to exceed 55MPH unless the strobes and/or siren are on.

RE: Speed limits

If you don't believe speed kills just look at the pileups with 40-50 cars. Those who are driving the limit are not the problem the speeder is the problem. IIRC most of those situations were caused by ice/fog/or some other "outlier". not necessarily breaking the speed limit. bumpy Well once again, driving too fast for conditions! Not looking far enough down the road, just stupid drivers! Describe in detail how "looking far down the road" helps when visibility goes from clear to total white-out in an instant.

RE: Fulltime Capable RVs

I just read Tucker Ballister's article, "The Best RVs for Full-Time Living." I was disappointed not to see some of the high-end manufacturers and their quality products listed. Quality products? LOL. I have found the quality only exists in the RV Industry on websites and brochures. Go high end, something on a Prevost foundation. Do that and it's clear you have enough coin or credit line/debt to have others maintain and make the repairs which will be needed at some point. High price is no guarantee of anything, especially so quality, which is subjective in itself. Other than 7-figure bus conversions and Airstream, most RVs have sub Soviet Bloc build quality.

RE: Mystery Switch

Just a guess, but sounds from your description like a switch to turn on and off the heating element in the mirrors. This. At a guess, it is a pair of rectangular Velvac mirrors-very common on cutaway Fords of that era. I drove a couple of shuttle buses with the same setup-and yes, the switch is for mirror heat.

RE: 80's 454 fuel supply challenges

Before you do anything else: check your grounds! Make sure the engine, fuel tanks, and ECM have good grounds. IIRC, you should have a BIG ground strap from the back of one cylinder head to the framerail. If this is missing or corroded, it can make for all sorts of weird problems.

RE: Reviewing results from CAT scale weigh in

Based on everyone's input I agree I have two concerns: - Do I need a WDH with higher rating? I would feel safer getting 2000 lb WDH. - Am I exceeding the hitch receiver capacity? TV still has OEM receiver. It is very difficult for me to find class rating of receiver GM puts on 3/4 ton suburbans. Does anyone know? Thanks again. I promise this will be last question. :-) The hitch should have the rating on it-and if it's OEM, it might be in the owner's manual.

RE: Reviewing results from CAT scale weigh in

Make absolutely sure to run your rear tires at maximum pressure (should be 80psi). They should carry it with no trouble, but you'll want that pressure.
