RE: Maybe the party is over.

Sounds a bit like Chicken Little. No chicken little, just accurate data. A drop of close to 100,000 sold, or 20% in two years, is substantial. Call it 4 billion dollars (if you do the math from the RVIA trumped up revenue numbers), not exactly chump change. Yeah, listened to business analyst who opined that this is a pre-cursor of a weakening economy as purchase of RV is a big-ticket use of disposable income. It also might have saturated the sale to boomers and the next generation may not be so inclined to outdoors life.

RE: Just 13 threads

Arrange for reservations specially on weekend for CA parks. Surprised myself lately. It's the middle of winter and campgrounds are reserved and booked solid on weekends. I guess those in the California Agri Inspection thread did not make good their threats to stopping visiting California. :B

RE: Trouble with California

You don't even have to do what they ask. Really? You just drive right on through and report back on what happens. If they ask you to stop, don't do what they asked. Just pull on. If you don't want them to search, then you say no. It's up to them if you get to drive on through or turn around. But the point is that you CAN say no to the search. If you get an attitude, you're guarranteeing a problem. If you're polite, you have a chance at an easier time. Or they can test again the constitutionality of the agri inspection and get another court decision like this: "United States v. Martinez-Fuerte, 428 U.S. 543, 96 S.Ct. 3074, 49 L.Ed.2d 1116, determined that checkpoints do not constitute a Fourth Amendment violation of the rights of motorists and their passengers. The court found that neither warrant nor probable cause was required to briefly stop motorists at the checkpoint to ask a few questions."

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

Just a question: If the $35,000 model was so unpopular and nobody wanted a "plain jane Tesla", why did reservations go through the roof when the $35,000 model 3 was announced? "...in March 2016, Tesla promised that it would start at $35,000. It built up a preorder list of over 400,000 customers based, at least in part, on that promise." So nobody wanted a "plain jane Tesla", huh? Just trying to keep the truth out there. If Ford opened up reservations for next years F150 would you assume that everyone wanted an XL? Since you are not going to buy a Tesla anyway and you probably don't know anyone that is concerned about it why do you concern yourself with it? Exactly! And the more important question is, what's the motive? Childhood heckling, can't stand people being happy, praying for shower seeing celebratory parade -- or plain envy? But let's not stop 'em. We are equally happy seeing other people twisting with their underwear bunching into a wad of discomfort.:B

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

What kind of documentation costs $1200? No idea. I think the line entry says something like destination and documentation fee. I still font know what that means. Bottom line is it’s 36300 plus tax if applicable. On our Nissan it was called freight and pdi and was more than that. Ugh. But... but... it's Tesla, so it must be evil. Even if other car companies charge more, documentation, freight, inspection, cleaning, etc., etc.

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

"When the Model 3 was finally unveiled 10 years later, in March 2016, Tesla promised that it would start at $35,000." Didn't happen. What are you talking about it did not happen?:S:h It's even happening right this very moment. I just been to my Tesla website and the standard Model 3 is still at $35,690.Geeze, are you dense, or just being obtuse on purpose? IT DID NOT HAPPEN! It was promised to be priced at $35,000 when the model debuted. IT DID NOT HAPPEN! You could not buy one for $35,000 until 3 years later. Yes, you can buy them now for $35,000 but you couldn't buy one at the promised price when the first came on the market. Which is my whole point. And even your post shows that it isn't available at $35,000, it's over $35,000. Now I'm done with you with this topic. In other words, you found yourself with your pants down -- or on fire because it's priced still at $35K but... But you have to add as a weasel out that the wait is 3 years. Then admitted that it is now still $35K, but you are nevertheless aggrieved for other customers (because you are not yourself buying) because that price was not yet available for when "it first came on the market". Whoa, that was some twist and turn in a new debating tactics.

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

Elon already announced $200,000 for the Roadster which surpass Taycan performance by a mile (no pun intended). Tesla has track records of meeting the prices they promised customers.I think you missed the point: I was rebutting the statement: "Tesla has track records of meeting the prices they promised customers.". It doesn't matter that you can now buy them by special order or at the dealership, oops Tesla store. The point was it took 3 years to get them delivered at the originally stated price. And how does that disprove that Tesla is not meeting their promised price point?

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

There is no new Tesla Roadster. There is a 2020 Porsche Taycan. What happened to all of those car transports that Tesla built? How many believe in the 3 row Tesla Y? How much money did Tesla make this year? Going forward you know! :B Yeah, Tesla who already produced the Roadster in 2008 will have problems making another Roaster. Yes sir, believe me sir.

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

Yes I believe the absolute base model of any vehicle on the lot is actually pretty rare. So reality is Tesla is about the same as the others on this point. For all those that said it would NEVER HAPPEN: How to buy Tesla M3 with $35,000 sticker Yeah, but the standards for the evil Tesla is different, they have to sell it at the promised base-price no matter where the customer is and no matter what add-on bells and whistles they want to put on.:S:h

RE: Trouble with California

This post is directed to those of you that have law degrees and those of you in law enforcement, please answer and correct me if I am wrong, I am not looking for arguments, just facts under the law. Is an RV rolling down the road considered a vehicle or a home? Is an RV that is parked with the sewer hose connected, the water connected and hooked to the electric grid cosidered under the laws as a home or an RV? What part of an RV is the vehicle and what part is a home? A 5th wheel or a pull trailer being towed are they rolling vehicles or homes, understanding that the pull units are vehicles and not homes. navegator From Supereme Cour decision: "The Supreme Court acknowledged that a motorhome was capable of functioning as a home, ... the relevant purposes, the Court found that a motorhome is more similar to a car than a stationary house. The Court explained that, like with a car, a motorhome’s “ready mobility” makes it impractical for police to get a warrant before searching. And, according to the Court, a person doesn’t have the same compelling privacy interest in a motorhome that they would have in a regular home. These factors convinced the Court that the automobile exception should apply to motorhomes..."

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

I would rather get the much faster Tesla Roadster with 620 mile range than the Taycan with ugly wheels. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49444552423_95b95f265d_z.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49444515348_2a0ae5cfa7_z.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49445058206_50a3f6c9be_z.jpg It is a Brute. And love that colour. But I’m guessing north of 200,000 grand. :). Elon already announced $200,000 for the Roadster which surpass Taycan performance by a mile (no pun intended).

Taycan Super Bowl commercial. Kinda cool. Now if they can just get it to catch the model S. Just ribbin. Cool car. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=537EwXTdipM Seems to me a marketing faux pas unless they are targeting the brand faithful. It's also counter-intuitive. Premium priced performance cars are bought for performance and it should at least match and better if it exceeds something already out there.

RE: Dual Fuel Generators

Thanks for the input so far. My intent would be to run on gas with propane only as a backup in the event I run out of gas and can't get more. I haven't ruled out a gas only. That's the most economical way to run it. It's propane guzzler with lower power output.

RE: Weight Distribution Hitch

Is the anti-sway bar new? If it is, it will make some noise like worn out brake as it breaks-in (sorry fo the pun) and gets smoother. It's steel to steel rubbing into each other. Also don't over-tighten it as it might bend or rip off the pivot balls. Also look on what the others have pointed out. Your brand of WD is not so common.

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

Got a Jeep mostly for farming. You're a farmer too? A pretty versatile fellow. Thanks! Started developing it and working on it weekends when resources become available as I started my professional life. But had to drop and break off with the mistress: golf, unless it's on company dime "strengthening business partnership". LOL.

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

Or they could just stop building them so high. They worked fine before. Yah totally agree. Or make it an option. Or make it ride height adjustable like the cybertruck and the Rivian. Seriously, with the amount of jacked up trucks I see on the road my guess is the drivers with the highest trucks are probably suffering from some kind of ***** size compensation complex. I would think MANY never leave the pavement and most have never had anything in them but a grocery bag....and I doubt they have ever towed anything. I have no problem with that as it is a personal choice. I get it, people like trucks. Meh. Common joke among my friends even before the 4th beer -- that's the size is in inverse proportion to how yuge the truck is. Except it's now called mushroom our circle described as yuuuge or tiny.:W
