RE: RV Restrictions in Colorado

I would have no concerns finding adequate parking in those locations.

RE: City Water is filling/overflowing my freshwater tank

Turn city water off, then make sure you open all faucets hot and cold side and run water pump to get air completely out. Then shut off and open city water again. There’s some YouTube videos out there on it and worked for me recently when faced with same problem.

RE: Teaching to tow?

We took a day long class here in Denver with a private instructor. Started in a parking lot doing backing and other maneuvers and then ventured into the mountains covering different road situations along the way. Was well worth the inexpensive cost for both my wife and I. Lazy Days provided us the contact info for local instructor if interested.

RE: Which cell phone provider do you use in the US?

OP-you are right to move off T mobile if traveling in western areas. Our friends have T mobile and frequently run into dead spots where we have Verizon coverage. You will get some dead spots with Verizon (as with any of them) but very few.

RE: In bed diesel tanks

The only quirk I have had is that twice in the time that I have owned the truck, the valve got gummed up and stuck closed and wouldn't allow the tank to drain. It only took about 15 minutes to get under the truck, take it apart, clean, and reinstall, but it could have been bad had I run the OEM tank all the way down and planned to continue driving through the desert running on the aux tank. Also happened to me once few years ago. I always leave my valve open now and no issues since.

60 ga. RDS gravity fed. Get fuel when it’s cheap and roll on.

RE: Refund Assistance

I worked him back through my selling dealer when I canceled mine. Send them a letter stating you wish to cancel the warranty effective today and that way it is in writing and the date is established. I was able to get back a prorated amount of my premium. As Tyler states read your warranty info, it should outline the refund policy. You don’t have to state why you want the refund. Then be prepared to follow up numerous times until they process it. It’s a pain.

RE: Generator at High Altitude

I had a Champion 3100 that I ran in CO at around 10,000'. It did just fine charging batteries, it even ran my friends Nuwave oven without issue. It ran on whatever jets were put in it from the factory. Same here, do they jet them differently when being sold above 5,000 ft?

RE: 2020 vs '17-'19 Ford 6.7

4xford.... you just sunk your own battleship. Your backing skills are exemplary, but not your math. If I’d claimed I could average $2k/year depreciation by trading up, I wouldn’t have written a paragraph admitting I’d be $7k a year into it! I don’t think he said anything about depreciation per se, he’s just comparing cash outlay. 4x4ord-If I’m following your numbers you were really only $3k (63k v 60k) worse off over the ten-year period, correct?

RE: Tv while traveling

Pay for TV.. Why would I do that???? I’m open to suggestions, what’s your free alternative?

RE: Tv while traveling

Hulu yes Hulu plus live tv no ... you have to be on the home network. I tried it with my sister-in-law’s used there login and all was fine until I left their WiFi Roku and Fire don’t work. I can log in on the phone and get locals where I am but I have to use the mobile device. They won’t give an account to someone with just a mobile cellular account. Again that’s the “live tv “ cable channels and locals . That’s what I found but I’d love to find different. I use YouTube TV for my live tv and haven’t encountered issues watching tv on the road. Interesting that Hulu Live would restrict you.

RE: Tv while traveling

Yes, we use Roku boxes hooked to tv and can get to most streaming apps including Hulu. Just need decent WiFi connection.

RE: I-70 Colorado in April

Yeah I wouldn’t change your plans. There are other ways around I70 to Moab if snow comes.

RE: 2020 Super Duty Media Launch

Heres' Big Truck Big RV and a couple of the Super Duty engineers pulling a fifth wheel. Truck has a 4,189 Payload capacity. Camper weighs ~12k lbs. Enjoy.... Link You could have made that video 5 years ago as I pull more than that with a 2015 F350 all over the west coast mountains. I didn’t see anything new in that video, so what’s the big deal?

RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

104 isn't the "real" mountains in NM. Try US-64 from Taos through Angle Fire and Eagle Nest heading to Raton towing. These roads are a challenge, but I'll take them any day over the interstates in Louisiana. Rob x2, we ended up recently driving this west bound late at night pulling the rig, luckily we were stopping in Angel Fire. Dodging the deer might have been the worst part though! We drove the rest to Taos the next day in daylight thankfully without the rig.

RE: Another Tesla problem

Other thing to consider. I did a job for a customer with a tesla and he told me he rarely, rarely ever uses his brake pedal. He said the gas pedal works if push it you go, and if you let off of it the car will stop. He said it took getting used to at first but now he barely needs the brake pedal. Could be instance in OP's link where the driver was doing that and in a panic situation stomped on the gas pedal instead of the brake because they were so used to never using the brake. You may be on to something. Changing basic driver controls should be approached with caution and only with significant study. Muscle memory is tough to reprogram, especially under a stressful situation where humans go back to basics. The risk IME is going back to ICE and not having these features and forgetting to hold the brake ( or the many other auto features). But you still use the brake pedal in EVs during an emergency, nothing has changed. Anyone have one pedal driving on their tractors, same concept.

RE: Another Tesla problem

The nice thing is IF they determine there’s an issue, they’ll push out a free OTA update and the car will be fixed while you’re sleeping. I wish my RV had that capability.
