RE: Electric Smoker for Long Term

I'll second the Davy Crockett. Mine has traveled in the storage bay for several years. Very convenient and cooks great.

RE: Original RV price

I've been occasionally checking the NADA average retail for our 2006 Country Coach. With the hot RV market, avg retail value has increased nearly $20,000 in the past year and a half since we bought it.

RE: Small Class A vs Large Class C

there are some very nice class Cs out there. But, I don't think I could give up the Class A basement storage. We carry a gas grill, Blackstone griddle,GMG pellet smoker, several tables, extra chairs, etc. etc.

RE: RV parts shortages

Many dealerships just don't look outside their normal channels. I was Emergency Purchasing Agent for a large mid-west heavy duty truck group that traded on exceptional customer service. My job was to expedite hard to get service parts. Our service manager would occasionally pop into my office to tell me one of his good customers was stranded in another state at a dealership that told the customer his needed part wasn't available. Usually, I could find it someplace and still get it shipped out of the warehouse next-day-air, often from the west coast. My service guy loved to phone the service manager where our customer was stranded and tell him the part he couldn't get was being drop-shipped to him and would be there the next morning.

RE: How to carry blackstone griddle

I had the 17" model and just cleaned and wiped the griddle, packed it in its carrying case and put it in a storage bay. I now have a 22" with the hood. I just clean and wipe the griddle, close the hood and set it in the storage bay next to the Green Mountain pellet smoker and gas grill.

Anyone looking for a project??

I know nothing about it. But, it might make a cool project for someone with ambition! 1970 F350 Camper

RE: F550 based Super C - anyone but THOR.

I see Thor does build a Super-C on the F550 chassis. When we were considering a Super-C, everything we saw was on either an International or Freightliner chassis. And they are pricey

Rivian R1T on-board camp kitchen

I'm not a big proponent of electric vehicles, but this is pretty cool. This could be pretty convenient for the casual weekend camper, fisherman, or hunter. Rivian R1T on-board camp kitchen

RE: Tire engineering question.

So I go and get rig weighted and inflate rear tires to 10% over psi suggested in load and inflation tables. I DID NOT HAVE A TIRE FAILURE. I keep getting told to run tires at much higher pressure in case I get a blow out, makes no sense. Your tire failure may have been totally unrelated to air pressure. Still, I am curious: how did "10% over psi suggested in load and inflation tables" compare to sidewall max pressure? In my mini Toyota sidewall max psi is 65, load and inflation table load range D tire calls for 39 psi, I run 43 and use TPMS. Sorry, but in my mind a blow-out is a tire failure. I am always curious about how folks use load/inflation tables. I see a lot of reference to them. I go with the advice of my neighbor, who is maintenance director for a large commercial truck leasing company. He manages the tire program for a fleet of several hundred tractor/trailer units. His advice to me for my motorhomes has always been to inflate to sidewall max pressure and go. Under-inflation equals excessive sidewall flex, equals excessive heat, equals blow-outs.

RE: Approximate fuel milage of these 2 motorhomes?l

Here is our experience with 3 class A m-homes. I keep a log of fuel usage, and fuel mileage is averaged over several thousand miles for each. Fuel usage does include some generator run time: 33' gasser with 454 engine @ 16,000 lbs max - 8 mpg 35' gasser with V10 engine @ 22,000 lbs max - 7+ mgg 40' diesel with 400 HP Cat C9 @ 31,000 lbs max - 6.4 mpg

RE: SPAM-alama-dingdong

I've been around meat processing from the slaughter house kill floor to the retail meat case for more than half a century. If you are squeamish about how SPAM is made, I'll be happy to provide a list of about 50 other products you should probably avoid. FYI, crispy pig tails fresh out of the lard press are a tasty treat for a kid.

RE: expedition or tahoe for 33' TT

I'm always curious when the wheelbase issue comes up. What length wheelbase does he need? I've towed boats and equipment trailers all over creation with a '75 Ford Bronco with a 92 inch wheelbase and never had an issue. Plus, it makes backing into narrow ramps and tight spots much easier.

RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

A large RV dealership near me currently lists 122 New RVs on their website. I count 31 of them that are on-site now, and the rest say "coming soon".

RE: Sliding Storage Tray

Our current coach has dual direction slides in both pass-through bays. They are great!! I'm planning on getting a tray for my pickup truck.

RE: bad starter......

If you can get at the starter from underneath, rap on it few times with a mallet and it might start. If it does, don't shut it off 'til you get to the shop.

RE: Extended tow bar

Extending the hitch will be like putting a pipe on a wrench handle, I think. I expect it will will effectively increase tongue weight significantly. Many years ago, I had an 11 ft truck camper. I built a 4 ft long extended hitch to tow my fishing boat. It worked OK. BUT, it was a light-weight boat with minimal tongue weight.

RE: Someone bought the first electric hummer for 2.5 million.

To me, the Cybertruck looks like someone built it in their garage with a few sheets of left-over plywood.
