RE: When is weight distribution needed?

The guy at the Camping World who sold me the trailer said I don't need it. The people and the manual of my trailer puller did not mention I need one. I drove with one and drove without -- the driving stability is like day and night. And yes, the trailer nearly flipped on me on the high winds along I-80 and I would not even consider not having one.

Article in the paper went on to say one video of the truck was actually just it rolling down a hill. Yup, they admitted as much.

RE: RVing in the winter

Went winter camping in Yosemite for about a week on those temperature ranges with exposed pipes underneath with no problems. Oh this is great, this is where i am going in September and was worried about that place as well. :-) thanks My best ever camping, the very lovely and awesome Yosemite in winter snow. Enjoy (though that might be overcrowded yet).

Motley Fool or Jim Cramer, who can argue against my earnings to buy the Cybertruck, and I'm now into funding the FSD (have not decided yet) out of Tesla stocks, lol.

Yes why are the guys from SeekingAlpha not explaining the demise of Tesla due to the failed Semi launch? Or the robo-taxi? These guys are the experts. Dang they better be right very soon, Tesla stock prices keep to breaking highest ever records and I need to re-enter the market.

Elon Musk is now the second richest man in the world, surpassing Bill Gates https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50642403636_1525e23abe_o.png Some of the shorts are out again. Got them burned the last time. But it's their money. My brother is a. believer. He is a software engineer and he thinks Tesla can hit another pot of gold once they monetize their data accumulated all over the world with their Teslas. tsla shorts lost another $4 billion last week ! Okay, $18 billion more to burn with Tesla again up 1.33% in the aftermarket.

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

So if its the same , why bother?Because there is an incremental improvement in all areas at lower cost. This has yet to be scene. I for one would like to know the long term effects of some of this stuff. But that goes back to what i said before. We dont know. Im not saying we should stop looking for advancements, but maybe we should study them more before implementing stuff on a large scale. Just for fun, and this is true, did you know that cement is the 3rd largest contributer to co2 in The world. Weird fact, right? Everything we do has consequences. I'm with you on this. I was involved with power hungry cement manufacturing. Indeed, one enlightened factory uses cancer-causing wind turbine and energy cost drops down yuge whenever wind is blowing hard between the channels in that California mountain range.

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

Back to the actual topic of the Tesla Semi.... Looks like the 500 mile version will be rated at up to 621 miles. YMMV https://electrek.co/2020/11/24/tesla-semi-electric-truck-621-miles-range-elon-musk/ Excited with every upgrade or good news about semis. It would only but translate carry-over tech to Cybertruck. And yes, issues for semis are range, mega chargers and charging turn-around. That battery range can go non-stop SF to LA even considering the steep climb in Grapevine-Cajon Pass.

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

I think he has to atuall perfect something first. His solar roofs catch fire, and some of his cars are rated like dead last for imperfections. He does have a great outlook on stuff. But the cost to make it cheap and affordable is creating a inferior produt. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/11/05/tesla-and-walmart-settle-over-solar-rooftop-fires.html you can google for houses also. I can find the car Then you need batteries to hold the power, i know tesla has them in prodution. But what happens when they catch fire, or leak etc. Idk. I would need to resurch the last one more. You should talk and convince the current Tesla owners on the imperfections. Most if not all of them will get another Tesla for a replacement or Tesla for an upgrade. Thats akin to talking people out of a cult. Lol. Just because people like them dosen't mean they dont have problems. There is a diffrence. Peole buy them because they are smitten with tesla and the ideal behind it. And I forgot, I also the kind of person who won't tell anyone where to spend their money on or giving unsolicited advice on what truck they buy.:B:W What does that even mean? I never told you what to buy or where to spend your money. I really dont care. I said tesla builds stuff fast and cheaply that causes problems with the end product. In cause you missed it, I was not talking about you -- it's me.

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

Let's call on Elon's dare to provide him with 100 square miles of open space to put his solar panels and he'll electrify the whole country -- and end the debate. Or shut up the skepticism when he did this to a city in Australia where Musk won the bet.. Did you mean 100 sq miles or 100 miles square? From what I can find even the second number is conservative. Square miles of solar panels needed. Are the environmentalists going to give you a pass on that? What about the transmission lines? What are you going to do with the solar panels in 30 years when the tens of millions of tons of solar panels lose too much efficiency to be practical to operate? How much storage is needed and what is the environmental impact of that? What would the damage be from one EMP bomb? I am not saying that it can't be done, just that there are issues that will need to be addressed at some point. And some around the clock energy not dependent on the sun sure could come in handy. I am a kind of solver of one problem at a time -- and sweat so much in finding problems in every solution, real or imagined.:S Well, recycling is key with anything going forward. Including solar panels. But although utilities might not want to use 30 year old solar panels they are far from end of useful life. There is lots of good googleable info out there about this. Real world numbers of 75 years plus are being used in the projected life cycle of solar panels. Interesting stuff. And my million mile battery on Cybertruck will outlive me even if I plan to go around the country, up North and down South beyond the borders pulling my. RV.;)

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

How about just hold him to his claim of having a Gigafactory off grid. I would love to see that happen as well. Guess it’s a matter of priorities and available cash. There are occasionally discussions about this on TMC. Maybe Texas first? Who knows. And business economics that electric companies are giving Tesla deep discounts for their energy requirements to get and maintain them as customer that it would be foolish for them to divert investment for solar roofs.

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

Google ANEEL Fuel, it appears to make Nuclear a real option for the future. Lower operating temps and up to 80% less waste, not able to be used for weapons stock. Fusion does not produce as much radioactive waste. But nobody is interested anymore in investing in nuclear reactors and Westinghouse has been substantially weakened financially. Even intuitively, there is more waste and pollution in ICE and lead-acid batteries. EV and lithium batteries have so much valuable materials in it that it would be foolish not to recycle most of it's components. And If eventually the million-mile batteries comes into fruition, then it's all moot and academic.
