RE: When are those new GM suvs going to be revealed?

Workers are on strike.GM has been very profitable since it dumped it's pensions on the taxpayers. Workers want their cut I guess.

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

More critical than the breed is the dog's socialization very early in life to different situations. Most definitely. While you can make SOME generalizations it's mostly up to you. Ran into a woman with a Springer a few months ago and the dog was not aggressive but not comfortable meeting new people. Mine will knock you over trying to get your attention. I'd be more concerned with temperament and personality than breed.I would agree with Crowe on this as well. It's mostly up to you to socialize. Border Collies are a high energy dog that requires lots of activities and exercise. It's definitely a commitment to travel with a dog.

RE: A tire blowout with a twist....

I know of two people who had Carlisle spare tires blow out on the back of a RV. Both were fairly new tires as well. This was before the new and improved Carlisle tires came out.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Well for very large 5er's that already use a MDT the Tesla semi might just be the ticket. Besides no more idling Diesels in the campground.

RE: Hellwig Sway Bars

I added a Hellwig sway bar to my Excursion as well. The latter X's had sway bars.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Far better than the monkey we had in office for 8 years prior :RThat's strictly a matter of opinion. We in corporate finance and economics do it by the numbers and cause-and-effect. Carter is much maligned but his economic performance was actually better than Reagan's on his comparative 1st term. And again this will throw some people here in a frenzy.wasn't the interest rate 20% during his term?

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Kansas gets 36.4 percent of it's power from wind turbines. Currently number one in the nation percentage wise. Grid capacity is not a issue for chargers. For me a Diesel fits my needs with the range to pull a large camper 900 miles in a day. My commuter is a gas truck for around town and short trips. I could see a electric truck filling those needs but would be reluctant to do so due to the cost.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

I could see in a large city new condos and apartments having plugs for charging as a selling feature. A lot of motels in the North use to have a plug in for a engine block heater.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

The back of the trailer is going to have more movement then over the axle which could cause motion sickness. In the midwest heat would be a concern where your at should not be as much of a issue. My Collies always rode in the truck cab so don't have much experience. I know my trailer is very warm when coming off a long highway drive. I did try hauling them one time in the topper of the camper and one got extremely sick for several days. I had the camper windows open and wonder if Carbon monoxide might of got in. After the trip I sold the single cab and bought a crew cab truck.

RE: Theft from dealership

If I bought a new RV they would be more then welcome to keep the torture device they call a mattress. I have bought several new RV'S and have yet to leave the dealership with the mattress. They can have the garbage tv as well. I can't understand why anyone would even want this stuff let alone stealing it.

Nissan is getting to be a expert at building vehicles that no one wants.

RE: Small Family hauler- HELP!

Because of what a TH is designed to do, most have the axles towards the rear for very heavy tongue weight. Add that to the short wheel base of the GC might not make a very good combination.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

What about battery recycling and production on a massive scale and environmental concerns?All this will evolve as the issue grows. These concerns have never stopped progress. Still no permanent solution to radioactive waste. Have not seen a restoration solution after strip mining coal. Even the coal ash is an issue to get rid of. Current vehicles seem to often rot for decades before they get crushed and recycled or sent to a land fill. Currently I know of no stockpile of spent lithium EV batteries creating an issue. All the laptop batteries must be currently going somewhere....You need to look at the strip (coal) mines in Eastern Kansas restoration area. Unlike the lead mines in southeast KS and Northern OK that were so polluted the only solution for the EPA was to condemn and purchase entire towns. Big difference between laptop batteries and massive production and disposal on a global scale. Still didn't address the mining issue for the materials to make the batteries. Nuclear waste is a prime example of what was thought as the ideal clean power as well. I know that heavy metals are extremely toxic to the human body.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

What happens when the power grid goes down from a a emf burst or sun activity? What about battery recycling and production on a massive scale and environmental concerns? ... When was the last time that happened? What about the environmental concerns if we keep burning gas? I don't think the "I don't believe it" philosophy is going to hold up very long.How about the last Hurricanes in Florida, Ice storms in Northern US and Canada have caused massive power disruptions. We have had people without power in Kansas without power for a month in bad ice storms. You still didn't answer the second part of the question. To answer your question March 13 1989 the entire province of Quebec was without power due to solar flare eruption. According to NASA report from July 13 2017 the (Carrington Event) could cause a global power outage. I'm not against electric or fuel powered vehicles but would like to make informed decisions.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

What happens when the power grid goes down from a a emf burst or sun activity? High density population area's like the eastern seaboard or west coast has had brown outs and black outs. Dependent on gas generators? Fuel stations can use a generator or manual pump to get the fuel out of the tanks? What about battery recycling and production on a massive scale and environmental concerns? It's going to take a lot of mining to come up with the materials to manufacturer batteries on a global scale. I don't have the answers but believe these questions should be asked.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Electrical vehicles very well might be the future. The way I look at it my Diesel should last my lifetime since projected lifespan is 76 years for a male. When I get older it does not make economic sense to replace. The only thing that could sideline my plan is the unavailability of fuel. I do agree that I don't give a tinker's darn about what overpaid actors and glorified athletes say.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

It doesn't matter. The world is going to end in 12 years. :)Hasn't that clock been running for nearly a year? You should now be planning your spending to liquidate your accounts in 11 years. Why leave a years worth of money on a dead planet?I guess I should start drawing my Social Security early in that case. :E

RE: 2013 GMC 1500 longevity?

We did just have a 5.3 go down in a 2012 pickup at under 100k miles. Dropped a valve or something, haven't seen the diagnosis, but noone could swear one way or another how the truck was used or maintained, since it's had about 5 different primary drivers at least and who knows how many others. I think it's an anomaly though. Most likely due to AFM Active Fuel Management aka cylinder deactivation. Many of us have this disabled in a tune.The way my mechanic explained it is when the cylinder is deactivated the lifter chatters on the cam causing ware on the cam. He has rebuilt 4 of them for companies around here. He personally bought a Chevrolet truck that had this issue and put in a new motor for his daily driver.
