RE: Jacking up 5th wheel?

Yep, under the U-bolt, to change a tire. Under the frame for suspension work along with under the U-bolt.

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

I am interested in this thread, but the constant "almost here, almost here, almost here, almost here" just gets so tiresome. Why can't the fan boys just accept that it will be late, and it will get here at some point, and give it a rest? Instead we get daily reports about it's "almost here". I mean it's coming up on 4 years and it's still not here, but it's "almost here". Its all about clicks,views, Electrek and everyone else and YT does the same. Put Tesla headline in and fans n haters will be right on it Lol Now better question is why isnt Ford GM or Rivian selling any EV trucks yet?Shoot, I forgot all about Rivian, they were supposed to be rolling them out. Yeah, what happened to them? Hopefully not another Elio Motors.

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

I wonder how similar these batteries are to the Iron-Nickel ones from early last century? Asking for a friend, are you someone who is nostalgic to the good 'ol days of horse buggy and want the world to go back to those days?:BNo, according to what I've read those were quite the technical breakthrough at the time. Just curious, doncha know. Even the BBC labeled them as 120 years ahead of their time. Maybe you should do a little reading up on them.

Tesla's stock price is!:EAnd that has exactly what to do with the semi's availability?

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

Are you buying or have a reservation?:hOh, good gawd no. Don't really need a semi, and all the Tesla's are out of my price range. So what's causing all that hang up about Tesla's delay in producing the semis?:@:hIt's not the delays per se, it's all the hype about the semi is ready to roll out the door, but it isn't and they won't admit it. Just keep saying almost ready, nearly in production, etc. I just get tired of hearing the same ole, same ole. Back off the hype and ramp up the production. If it ain't ready, just say so.

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

So far haven't seen the full electric semi, must be just around the corner? I'm just commenting on the perpetually upcoming semi, since that is what this thread is about.Need a new factory first. All other factories are producing previously perpetually upcoming vehicles at max capacity 7 days a week. Go to Texas and see the new factory under construction.Yes, yes I know all that, but all you hear is how soon it's going to be here, when, in fact, it's a couple years away, when this thread first started. I just get tired of no one being realistic. If it's going to be two years, say so, or say "I don't know". An amazing phrase that should be used more often, especially when anybody is predicting new model releases. Are you buying or have a reservation?:hOh, good gawd no. Don't really need a semi, and all the Tesla's are out of my price range.

RE: Speed limits

The 2 second rule is decent, but they say that stopping distance increases at about the square of speed. So if you're going twice as fast, the stopping distance is 4 times as long as it was at the slower speed. So you're probably right that the 2 second rule doesn't work as well at higher speeds.

Where would Tesla production be without the words "nearly", "almost", "upcoming", "predicted", "awaiting", and the infamous "just around the corner". :)

RE: F250 Short Bed Adding Diesel Auxiliary Tank

I installed a 36 gallon auxiliary fuel tank in my long bed Ram, but it sits below the bed rails, and is only about 6 inches long, so it certainly wouldn't affect the turning radius of a short bed.

RE: B&W Companion Hitch Shock replacement

Jerry, really?? You want Ron to report you to the B&W club?? Did you know there is 1 single grease zerk as well? There =should= be 3. Should be a 90 zerk to grease the head pivots so you can grease without having to take the head off to do so. Been wanting to drill and tap these for years, but have never gotten roundtuit. :-) LyleHere ya go. :) https://i.imgur.com/FwPhLLb.jpg height=400

RE: Speed limits

Full disclosure: I knew several city policeman, and a few county sheriffs, which I why I tend to have a not very favorable opinion of law enforcement officers. Yes, a small number, but it does tend to color a person's opinion of LEO's. I don't think that a trooper should be fired for speeding a little over, but I do think they need to realize that they are not above the law. All the LEO's I knew tended to believe that they deserved to be treated more leniently than a civilian. I've passed a few state troopers that were running about 2 mph under the speed limit on the interstate, and had a whole line of cars behind them. I just waved as I went by. They just smiled and waved back. :) Not all LEO's are bad people, far from it. But the job beckons to a certain type of mindset, and those are the ones who need to be weeded out. Like Douglass Adams said about something similar to that: “Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
