RE: Cruise testing, I would be uncomfortable

They may have gotten the numbers transposed and meant to say 2091.

RE: Cruise testing, I would be uncomfortable

The experts say that this is decades away. One said "fully self-driving cars are 20 years in the future. And always will be."LOL

RE: Credit Card apps

I've heard, but "it ain't necessarily so". And so far the digital license isn't accepted in many states. I carry all the stuff I need in a wallet not much thicker than my phone. It's been like that for 40 years, I hate a thick wallet, and have never found the need to haul all that stuff around.

Thanks, but no thanks.

RE: A new way to tow a 5’er!

As jury-rigged as that outfit looks, I think it's pretty safe to say it would be sketchy at best.

RE: Credit Card apps

Another step to not carrying any wallet. I look forward to it.How would you carry your Medicare ID card? Driver's license? Cash for tips? Library card? I hate the idea of having to carry a phone everywhere. Too bulky, too fragile, I can drop my wallet with no issues. I use an online banking app since my checking account bank no longer has a branch near us, so I can make deposits using my phone. Don't know of any other real benefits to a banking app.

RE: Camping Lights

Amazing the leaps that people can make. Someone comes in saying they prefer a dark campground. Immediately they are pounced upon for being killjoys, and "crampers" whatever those are. Where did a desire for a non-Times Square environment, become a desire to kill all the bunnies and blind the kittens? It seems if you don't agree with someone, you are not just wrong, you're morally reprehensible. Some people prefer a darker RV park, and some don't. It doesn't really mean anything other than that. But if you feel the need to rationalize your behavior, by all means have at it.

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

Is that anything like that chip they used in the Boeing aircraft that keep crashing? I think that was supposed to be the latest and greatest too. Maybe we could avoid the hype until it's actually in use, and it demonstrates that it works.Thanks for posting more FUDOh, it isn't the chip/software that causes issues with the airplane? And then I guess this chip has actually been tested? Or is this just more hype about how great it will be?

RE: A new way to tow a 5’er!

Pickup bed trailer with 6-8 lug axle = 6k-7k lbs with brakes/E tires and wheels. 5th wheel trailer has brakes and the tow vehicle has brakes. Its simply a poor man version of the high priced Automated Safety Hitch system.Not really. The Automated Safety Hitch solidly mounts to the tow vehicle, and doesn't pivot like that would. The only pivot point is where the trailer attaches to the Safety Hitch. It would mean a world of difference in the stability of the tow. Try to brake hard like a semi-panic stop and there's no telling where that trailer is going to end up.

RE: Jump Start Question

Yeah, the first time that happens is really surprising. We had stopped on our way to our daughter's house and gassed up. Restarted the truck and drove on over to the house. Stayed a few minutes, went to leave, and the truck wouldn't start, no crank, no nothing. Showed about 12.0 Volts IIRC. New battery, checked the alternator and good to go. It was about a 5-6 year old battery. IMO 3 batteries in 10 years is way too many. I figure at least 5 years for a battery. The battery in my car is 6 years old, and the one in Peggy's truck is 4 years old.

RE: Camping Lights

Well said jake2250! But you’re upsetting the crampers over the Internet and they haven’t even had the pleasure of cramping next to you!See, there is a god. And I've camped next to this guy, usually on a holiday weekend, and ends up with the cops being called after the third fight breaks out.

RE: Jump Start Question

Most newish vehicles won't start, or even crank, when the voltage gets below a certain point. So basically it starts fine at 12.3 volts, but the computer says "No Way" at 12.2 volts. I'd be checking the alternator, and/or starter. What was the voltage when the truck wouldn't start? I'm sure it wasn't "stone cold dead", you did check the voltage didn't you?

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

They were more prominent at the end of 2019 since thats when you can make changes to your plan. I don't see hardly any now. But with 8000-10,000 old people retiring each day there's still a reason to have them. You didn't have to call us "old people." Experienced or seasoned persons would have been preferable. :)Well, you can be "old" or "dead". Not many other choices. :) What I hate is the stupid "I'm 70 years young". Geeze.

RE: Camping Lights

Ah yes, it's all about the "ME". Heck, why should a person ever be considerate of other people? X2Yes maybe I'm inconsiderate. Or on the other hand, maybe its you, the "I don't like it so no one else can do it" type of person (All about "ME" and what I like). If the campground rules aren't to your liking, find a different campground.See, that's the issue, you only feel you have to obey "The Rules", not think about the other people. I've made no mention about having rules against lights, just that I prefer the dark. The difference between us is that I have no desire to make rules to enforce how I feel since I realize that other people like to do things differently. It's just how I feel about it. I would prefer the dark, but don't intend to force my preferred way of doing things on others, unlike the people who light up their area like Times Square and don't care, or even think about anyone else.

RE: Camping Lights

Some people are wound way to tight! Lighten up! It Called Festive! A celebration of sorts. The joy of camping! You all ever been beach camping?? What about all the twirly things spinning in the wind? The festive fish spinners? I enjoy it and appreciate the joy of it! And now with all the little solar light twirly spinning nautical theme things, Its allot of fun! And in reality,, If it Irks you,, you have chosen the wrong Hobby! Maybe the Desert is for you? But to be honest, when we camp in the desert I have an LED flag pole topper that changes colors! It serves two maybe three purposes. Its a camp locator when you are out on your dirt bike/quad/or side by side. Its patriotic (red/white/blue) and its FESTIVE! AND,, It can run all night! And if that bothers you----Don't ever camp at a NASCAR Event, Its always a FESTIVE event! P.S. Be happy you are not my sticks and bricks neighbor, I have them in my back yard and some in the front! HA! LOL...proves many people's points on here about consideration of others!Or lack of same.

RE: Camping Lights

I have no idea, but the plethora of lights is really annoying. I like the dark, and some of these RV parks are brighter than my neighborhood. There's the under-the-trailer light ropes, the front model designation LED lights, the flood lights, the front door lights, the under-the-awning lights, the under-the-trailer LED lights. Seems like more every year, I honestly have no idea what the fascination is with making the outside brighter than the inside.
