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

Just kind of curious when this turned into the forum on posting the wealth of Elon Musk, over the production of his truck and semi.

RE: Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

Several posters on the Grand Design forum have described tread separation with their Sailun tires purchased earlier this year and manufactured in Vietnam.

RE: Unable to locate hydraulic pump to check fluid level

Well, the OP has never come back to expand on his problem, so we may never know. :) My 2005 Keystone Big Sky had hydraulic landing gear, and I loved them, they worked so fast. Much better than the electric ones, IMO anyway.

RE: Unable to locate hydraulic pump to check fluid level

After giving this some consideration, I think he has worse problems than finding the pump. I think they're under the impression there's a separate pump for the slides, because their slides won't move and they're trying to find the pump to see if it's too low on fluid to move the slides. There's only one pump, and it should be in the front compartment.

RE: Unable to locate hydraulic pump to check fluid level

I had a 2005 Keystone with hydraulics, so it is possible. But are you sure it's hydraulic, and why do you need to find the pump? Have you tried using the hydraulics and followed the sound? Or followed the hoses from the front stabilizers? It's pretty good sized, so pretty hard to successfully hide. :)

RE: Wheel Bearings - re-grease?

I wouldn't.

RE: Barker Automatic valve openers

Yeah, if mine were binding and hard to pull, I'd probably be looking too. Gotta admit they do have a certain amount of geeky appeal. :)

RE: Forest River Electric Water Heater Issue

Even our new-to-us 2019 Momentum still has the manual switch out in water heater enclosure. All electronic stuff everywhere, but some still manual also. You can pick up a new heating element at a hardware store, usually 1500 watts. Cheaper than at a camping supply store.

RE: Barker Automatic valve openers

For $300 I think I'll stick to easy and simple. :) And spend the extra money on fuel.

RE: Amps/voltage to trailer brakes

Just curious how a person would adjust a manually adjustable drum brake unless they used the "tiny hole on the backing plate"?

RE: 2 cycle oil Dodge 5.9 diesel

Nope, never have. Thought about it, but never did it.

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

Part of the statement from Tesla was that they would endeavor to hire "people of color", and try to maintain diversity in the job place.

RE: Newsom signs bill to ban the sell of gas powered generators

Why don't they include those stinking motorcycles. Motorcycles were indeed more fuel-efficient than cars and emitted less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, but they emitted far more smog-forming hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen, as well as the toxic air pollutant carbon monoxide. For the most recent model year vehicles tested -- from the '00s -- the motorcycle used 28% less fuel than the comparable decade car and emitted 30% fewer carbon dioxide emissions, but it emitted 416% more hydrocarbons, 3,220% more oxides of nitrogen and 8,065% more carbon monoxide.And they they can go after the boat motors. No reason those little boats need motors anyway. They're fourstroke now, but doubt if they have much smog controls.

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

Also, those Texans probably don't realize how much their government forked out to get Tesla to build there. :) Hint: "Travis County offered the electric car giant a package of tax incentives worth about $1,200 a year for each of the five thousand jobs it promises to create at its new factory." Spoiler, that's $6,000,000. And "Del Valle ISD’s incentives were matched by Travis County’s, which will give Tesla additional property tax rebates worth $14 million over ten year."

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

We priced our truck and 5th wheel to sell earlier this year. We had the trailer priced at $25,000, and the truck at $18,500, which is what I paid for it 15 years ago. We had many offers to buy the truck, one guy said he would buy both to get the truck!! It's a 2001 Dodge diesel dually quadcab, with 119,000 miles, and the six speed manual. Apparently more desirable than I had thought. Ended up we sold the trailer and kept the truck, and now using it to pull our new-to-us 5th wheel.

RE: Tires again

The age of the tires can be determined by the DOT code on the sidewall. Four numbers in a oval, the first two numbers are the week and the second two are the year. If they are OEM tires, you're likely living on borrowed time, although our Sailun tires on the last trailer were 7 years old when we sold it.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

A slight hijack: the price of used trucks knocks me out even more than the price of new trucks. Just saw a 2017 Ford 3/4 ton on Craigslist, pretty loaded, and priced at $65,000!!

RE: Barker Automatic valve openers

Personally I go with the KISS concept, so I'd stick with cable. JMO of course.

RE: Tires again

Just a heads-up about the Sailun: they are now made in Vietnam, and there have been several instances of complete tread separation. This was on tires made earlier this year in Vietnam. Dunno if it's a continuing problem. I loved the Sailun tires on my Fuzion, six years old and still going strong when I sold the trailer. Now I'm having second thoughts, but won't need tires for another year or so, hopefully anyway. There may be more news by then.

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

where is the semi?I'm listening, but hearing nothing but crickets. But after all it's only been 4 years. :)That is because those crickets are busy building the factory in TX. And Semi seems to have been pushed to come after ModelY & CT at the plant under construction.Maybe they could have been upfront from the beginning, and explained it will be several years before the semi is available. But I don't remember ever hearing that. What I heard was Next Year, Next Year, ad infinitum. And of course "It's just around the corner".
