RE: Is GasBuddy any use at all now??

My fave part of gas buddy is showing up at the gas station and whaddya know the price is higher than what's posted on gas buddy. Aren't prices reported buy GB users? When I looked this morning two local stations had 1 hr postings and one had a 17 hr posting. I've never paid any attention to small prices changes. I usually look for brand and price compared to other stations nearby.

RE: Dish Upgrade

I've had a Pathway X2 for 7+ years. It works great but it's big and sometimes awkward. In the time we've owned it I bet I could count on one hand how many other X2's we've seen. When it finally does quit working I'll be going to a smaller satellite.

RE: Solar panel mounting; screws or toggle bolts?

I would just use lag bolts and Dicor the heck out of the bolts and brackets. Put butyl tale under the bracket before you bolt them down. Ken x2, exactly what I did. 3 seasons and no leaks.

RE: An upgraded option for the half ton Pickup crowd

In a FLT video they showed the CCC sticker on a semi loaded truck. It was in the 1200 lb range. 500 lbs for a few people and some stuff in the bed and you don't have much left to tow with. Loser.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

And oregon state parks do have discounts: not sure what fee if any for out of state but active military on leave or service connected disabled vet's camp for free for up to 10 days/month in RV or tent sites (not yurts) foster parents camp for free up to 14 days/month. for active military, disabled, foster parents. The above do need to pay for extra vehicles etc. but still it is great to see the support for military and foster parents. We've camped all over the west and midwest in state, federal, county BLM, and dispersed campsite. The oregon state parks are well kept up and located near many of the things we do outdoors. They vary from full hookup campgrounds all the way to no hookups but vault toilets and water nearby. If you don't want to pay out of state fees, GREAT!!!! better chance I will be able to get a reservation on short notice!! Thanks to those who based on the out of state fees decide NOT to visit oregon. Oregon also has lots of county campgrounds that are nice as well. x100%

RE: What's you remaining payload weights as configured?

I bought an SRW 3500 CTD. Payload 4552 lbs. No need to worry. I don't see the point in cutting it close on payload when buy a truck. BTDT. It's always better to have too much payload. If you're going to tow a 5th wheel any size beyond the 1/2 ton rated types then a 1 ton will be the minimum. Unless you get a gas 3/4 ton then that size 5er will need to be towed with a 1 ton.

RE: Figuring Mileages

Don’t blindly follow the Garmin without verifying the route. My old Garmin once took me to a rocky low water crossing when it should have had me turn about a 1/4 mile before that. Another time, a different Garmin tried to take me around to the back entrance to the Great Sand Dunes on an unpaved 4 wheel drive vehicle only road. Fortunately I knew better. x2

RE: Forest River Wildcat OR Grand Design Reflection...???

GD for me. I think back when they started they were making quality units. Today from my reading on their forums they've slipped on quality some. The 303 is a generic floorplan but a well thought out one.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

Would Oregon campers be unhappy at paying extra for out of state camping? They have to in ID.IDAHO, USA — Idaho State Parks will double the price for out-of-state campers and visitors starting Thursday, June 10 to comply with a new state law. House Bill 93 specifies an increase in fees for some of the state's busiest parks, including Bear Lake, Farragut, Hells Gate, Priest Lake and Round Lake. The new price for non-residents to enter the parks jumps to $14. For out of state campers, a basic campsite at those parks will cost $48 a night.

RE: Predator 3500 vs 2 Champion 2500

I don't have a dual fuel but do have a 3500W inverter elec start. I have a single 13,500 BTU AC. The gen is quieter than my Honda 2000W when running most everything except the AC. 2 2500's will need to rev a fair amount to get the same power output. I've seen videos of guys paralleling 2 2200 gens to run heavy loads and the smaller gens need to rev out. That makes them noisy. My Genrac iq3500 barely breaks a sweat when I fire up the AC. Under all other use such as charging the batteries when dry camping of running the coffee pot, hairdryer, etc it only revs up a small amount. I though about getting another Honda 2000 to use for the AC, but after watching others parallel them I went for a single 3500. Same price as well.

RE: An upgraded option for the half ton Pickup crowd

I read in another article that the max payload is 1940? Guessing that's lower the nicer trim you get. Still not quite up to F150 specs. But the power is definitely their.

RE: jayco small travel trailers

Most RV's are made in Indiana...a state that has a $7.25 minimum wage. You get what you pay for should be stated on the sales contract. Oregons minimum wage is $12.75. We have Forest River, Keystone, ORV and Northwood as our big RV manufactures. I see some pretty sloppy work from all 4 of those. You could pay workers $25 an hr and management would still want it built ASAP.

RE: “Pathetic quality”: RV dealers are fed up...

"If they buy it, we will build it" Seems to me that the quality level corresponds with the expected results from the manufacture. I see no reason other than money that any manufacturer can't build a solid well built RV.I guaranty that those so called shabby workers would build it better if their jobs were on the line. They don't have to because they're not expected to be perfect. Only good enough. The other problem is the cheap stuff that's been installed in RV's for decades. I see some trends in certain products that are slowly working their way into RV's. Build technology and parts improvement would go a long way towards improving quality.

RE: Route from Blue River,Or to Caldwell,Id.

Hwy 20 is fine. It's almost but ugly out in eastern OR on that hwy. When we're heading east we prefer hwy 26. It's a gorgeous drive but an hour longer though.

RE: 2022 Chevy Silverado Reveal

Those Fords grills look like Rams grill.

RE: Two part ??? - Has your camping reservation been cancelled?

We've cancelled in the past and this year didn't camp at all in August except for the 1st couple days because of smoke. Smoke is definitely playing a part in choosing where to go. We did cancel two trips last month from smoke. We're in Oregon.

RE: Air Shocks or Air Bags on TT

Level Mate Pro. It tells you exactly how out of level the RV is in 1/4" increments. Plus it does front to back and recalls the coupler height for hitching back up. All from the comfort of your drivers seat.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Vehicles with major electrical issues sometimes have a short and catch fire….;) And that's why I'm never going to buy a Ram again, or recommend that anyone buy one. They are overpriced pieces of Bye-don dung.

RE: GM and others shutting down production.

Hmm, so paying someone the necessary amount so they can afford to buy what they build is unsustainable? I'll have to think about that one. Hmm, so we should pay everyone enough money that they can afford a Lamborghini? The guy that sweeps the floor at NASA should be able to afford a space shuttle? How about the guy that delivers the rivets that assemble the newest cruise ship... he should be paid enough to afford to buy a cruise ship? Think about that too... For what its worth, I get paid quite a bit more than $15/hour and I can't comfortably afford a top of the line GMC Denali. How much more should I demand from my employer so that I can afford expensive luxuries? You don't buy chips. You buy what they're used for. Intel doesn't make trucks.

RE: GM and others shutting down production.

Intel could start making chips if they use existing fab plants. As an Oregonian and in commercial construction for 30 years I've worked on projects involving new buildings for Inntel. It takes years to get one up and running.
