RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

So,they exit the market in 14 years. I will be 77 years old. If I'm lucky enough to still be RV'ing I could still purchase a 2034 GM ICE vehicle if I choose. If electric vehicles are truly superior they will take over the market without being mandated anyways.

RE: Travel Trailers for large families

Your NV3500 van is actually quite a bit stouter than a Nissan Titan pickup. The posters advising you to get a bigger tow vehicle probably don't realize that the NV3500 is a heavy duty commercial van with 8 lug wheels and a RGAWR of just over 6000 lbs. So it's every bit a capable as a 2500 series Suburban or other comparable vehicle. While it's not a diesel crew cab dually pickup, it should be a better tow vehicle than virtually any new SUV on the market, and a great choice for your family and trailer. ^ What he said! Disregard the other fodder about your van pattinsoldier. You are in the land of many uninformed opinions. Proceed as such and get that camper ready for spring time!As long as your in the parameters of the Nissan capacity I would say go for it as well and enjoy making memories with your family.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Ironically they are worried about receiving a vaccine implanting them with a tracking device yet most likely they use are using social media or cell phones which already are doing that in other ways. I'm looking forward to getting a COVID vaccination. It's surprising how many adults say they will not get one. They're concerned about it making them sick, giving them COVID, it's only saline and my favorite, it contains a tracking device. They think the government is going to sit and moniter the location of millions and millions of people. They're the same ones who think it's all a big hoax.How do you overcome ignorance? Also your cell phone is a GPS device. If they want to track me someone would get really overcome with boredom. Since this is a pet thread they sell GPS devices you can put on your dog's collar to track them if they get lost. Thought about it but the Collies are like Velcro. I personally know of two older people who passed from covid sadly.

RE: COVID sniffing dogs

Any chance they could train dogs to sniff for corruption? We could use some of those in D.C. ;)Sensory overload.

RE: COVID sniffing dogs

It's amazing what dogs are capable of doing.

RE: Travel Trailers for large families

What is the payload on the NV3500? Subtract the people and gear in the Nissan and what you have left is available for tongue weight of the trailer. 8700 lbs we are figuring 1000 in people and 500 of gear in the van. So it would be: 6200Your confusing tow rating with payload. See afidel post.

RE: Outdoor speakers leaks, 2nd toy hauler same problem

I tried to delete the outdoor junk speakers when I ordered my TH and they wouldn't do it. I just wanted a couple of jacks mounted to the outside to plug good quality speaker into at the campsite. Second problem is good marine speakers are way deeper then the walls allow. Was forced to replace with same low quality speakers when the cone rotted out of the previous ones. Our old Warrior just had a couple of speaker wires dangling from the belly. That was actually a great solution. I added some good RCA plugs inside a set of weatherproof boxes and connected some great speakers.I thought of putting in a couple of led scare lights in the speaker holes and running the wire under the trailer with jacks for the speakers.

RE: Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone closed until 2022

If you have to have full hookups, why not stay in West Yellowstone and drive in? You can still see the park and have your hookups. You just have to plan early, but, you had to do that to get a Fishing Bridge site anyway.That's what I did. Worked well for me.

RE: RVing with a parrot

I just use water and fill the black tank with one third tank of water after emptied. After 10 days I empty the tank and start over. I have never had a issue with oder. In hot weather you may have to go to 7 day schedule. This also does not harm the septic system at the seasonal RV park.

RE: Special offer RV magazine

Thanks, looks like March of 23. Still no Goodsam representative has answered my other questions? Will they substitute the new magazine for the old magazine until the subscription finishes?

RE: Quality Decline since Covid

I've always looked at RV'S as a kit, (some assembly required ). While the quality may be lacking the manufacturer's have done a decent job keeping them affordable for the masses. How many on the forum own a Provost conversion or Newell motor home? Or for that matter a 270G New Horizon.

Possible fuel contamination? Or simply thermal expansion?

RE: Giving it up

I would suggest you keep the Aliner for short trips if for no other reason to get out of the house for a while. You don't have to go on long trips, maybe to the lake or local campground just to get out. I assume it's paid for and not costing a lot to keep. Where my seasonal is at one person lost their husband another lost his wife and they both drew on the support of each other. There might be a support group in your area as well.

RE: Snow loads for Trailer

Last winter the resort in Northern MN where I leave my TT had enough snow to collapse the roof of a large barn. I have seen small steel storage sheds collapsed as well. Not one of the seasonal RV'S that I know of were damaged. My Cherokee has survived a decade of winters and it's not built nearly as well as your Nuwa.
