RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

Not so mind-boggling when you watch people slow down so they can see an accident by the side of the road. People have always been fascinated by carnage.

RE: No more GM diesels?!

My gosh, it's a wonder the whole article isn't in caps. Talk about hysteria, nonsense, and plain old "The sky is falling" crapola. In one sentence he's stating that GM is done, and the next statement is GM isn't really going all electric, and will have a mix of vehicles. If you looked up the definition of "hyperbole" in the dictionary, this article will be it.

RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

It's not that I don't like it, although I don't care for posting of accidents with fatalities, in general, I don't understand the posting of it in the first place. It has nothing to do with RV'ing.

RE: Valve extenders safe?

I've tried 3 different brands of flexible valve extenders, including the braided hose. None worked for more than a year or so. One of them leaked immediately, one lasted a couple weeks, and one lasted about a year. The braided hose one almost wore a hole in the sidewall of the tire from rubbing against it. No way would I ever rely on them to hold air.

RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

It used to be that September/October was a great time to go places since school was back in session. But not any more, now it's a ton of old people out and about. I figure there's now three seasons: High Season, Low Season, and Geezer Season. We were at Yellowstone a couple years ago during the last week of September and it was nearly as crowded as peak summer season. Lots of lines, no parking, and busy shops and cafe's. Crazy. We left the day before Fishing Bridge Campground closed for the season, and were just amazed at the number of people.

RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

RV'ing subject? I thought it was a tour bus. Are we just supposed to gawk and look at the wreckage? Why post about a disaster where people were killed? What does a person learn about this wreck? Don't ride in a tour bus? I belong to several motorcycle forums, one of which won't post links to motorcycle accidents, unless there is a definite point to the post. Because most Super C's are built on that same chassis!Does that mean we'll be subjected to lots of truck wrecks because they pull a lot of trailers?

RE: Missing bed rail nuts

And maybe add a dab of Lock-Tite.

RE: Newer RVs....ugh

Most campers made are delamninating before they reach the dealer. The junk single axle garbage trailer dominating the newbies are ready to self destruct this winter. Interesting. Where did you glean this amazing information? Especially like to hear about the "most"Well, you know what they say: "73% of statistics are made up on the spot".

RE: Cleaning out a DIY septic tank

"You basically have nothing more than a fancy "outhouse" or "privy", dig hole put outhouse over then rinse and repeat once that hole is full" Yeah, that was my thought too. No septic tank about this, just a outhouse gettin' fancy.

RE: Tires, again!

You're certainly welcome to your opinion, but it's a fact, not opinion, that tires heavier than needed can contribute to a very harsh ride.

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

There are a zillion gasoline car fires a day. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48751995692_ccbcfc427b_z.jpgYeah, but there's a kazillion gasoline cars out there. More gas cars means more fires. With no gas, EV cars shouldn't ever catch fire. Or will they?

RE: Vent fans and a/c at the same time

Seems like a simple enough experiment that takes about 10 minutes to try...Yeah, but on such a subjective "experiment" it's pretty much a given that the experimenter will get the results he desires to get.

RE: Towing small utility trailer behind 5ver

I towed a "swivelwheel" type trailer for a few years and never checked with the DMV where I was going. I figured if I got stopped, I would be inconvenienced for a while, but no serious harm was going to be done. And backing up was never an issue. FWIW I was never stopped, and I traveled through, and stopped in, several states that don't allow double towing. YMMV.

RE: Vent fans and a/c at the same time

I've always figured that the air going out has to be replaced by air coming from somewhere, and that somewhere is going to be from outside. If it's hot outside it's pulling hot air into the camper. Seems kind of a self-defeating cycle.

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

So I'm unsure what you're asking. The automatic transmission on these years' trucks is a known issue. The only way to solve that is to pull the transmission and have it beefed up to handle the load/weight. I have a 2001 Dodge Cummins dually with the six speed transmission. I'm pulling a 15,000 lb. toyhauler which it does very well. It's pretty much at its max since I have to keep a close eye on the EGT. But I pulled a 12,000 lb. 5th wheel before this one and it pulled that thing with no issues at all. The truck can do it, it just depends on if you want to spend the money to enable it to continue.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

I did, and got water in my eyes from the rain. Now what? I read that last night and looked up, seen the Moon, almost full. Ran up to the garage and broke out my Lunar Panels. $5 you both also had to walk 10 miles to school, in the snow, up hills to and from school. Or, you still do. And usually with no shoes. Even when we had them they would be two different sizes.And hand-me-downs.
