RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

I'll buy an EV when the range is improved (we live in the country). I hate the pollution I'm producing with my gas car and diesel truck (soon to disappear). Where I live, the electricity to charge the EV does NOT come from burning fossil fuels. Sorry, didn't watch the video.

RE: toy haulers stop at weigh stations?

Just to make it confusing for some, my one-ton truck is registered as COMMERCIAL because there is no personal registration for a vehicle that heavy in my jurisdiction. I once got pulled over when I was in my truck WITHOUT my 5er. The inspector wanted to see my log books. He let me off when I explained the situation but he said "You would never be pulled over with an RV on the back". I reduced the registered weight of the truck so I wouldn't get pulled over when I'm 'solo'. It's all academic now because this year they took away my Class A driver's license because I got tired of taking annual physicals.

RE: 10 foot CAT5e Ethernet Cable not working

Put the ends of the two cables together side by side to see if they're both made the same way. He said it used to work so I seriously doubt it's a miswired connector.

"computer controlling the digital inverter" How retro.

RE: Generator

I bought their 2200 watt model. Used it for two weeks at Quartzsite and took it back. They charged me 20% restocking fee but I was happy to get most of my money back. The 2000-2200 market has several other models available now and I'd look else where. Having been burned by many of the things I've purchased at HF, I'm buying less and less from them.Why did you take it back after using it for two weeks?

RE: admin

I don't like ads showing up in the forums either. OTOH, did the plant tour of Tweed today. Interesting visit.

RE: Lippert slide adjustment

Still don't know what kind of slide you have. Is the rack and pinion underneath or on the walls?

RE: Turning your heat off at home while in Florida

I would if I had a sump pump. That's next on the list if the insulation doesn't work.

RE: Turning your heat off at home while in Florida

Yeah, I was thinking of changing my condensate drain from a hole through the wall to the septic. The wisdom seems to be that's the worst thing to do - occasional small runs of cold water will freeze in the septic line for sure (if there's nothing else to keep it thawed).

RE: A New Campground WiFi Record

I still don't understand the need for such speeds. I'm throttled at the moment and so dl is 2.0 mbps and up load is 1.4. I can watch netflix with no buffering.Not in high-def.

RE: Turning your heat off at home while in Florida

Last winter, the weather was so harsh without adequate snow cover that the drain for the condensate from our high-efficiency furnace froze. After a lot of furnace runs, that can add up to a lot of water in the basement. I'm going to dig it up where it comes through the foundation and add exterior insulation. BTW, quite a few people around here had frozen septic systems too. Ours was probably frozen but there was no one here to use it so it didn't matter.

RE: Canuck with no medical insurance - prepare for emergenncy"?

Generous? Hahahaha. Remember, I'm Canadian. The total out-of-pocket cost of my heart treatments was nil, nada, nothing. But that's not the debate - what can I take with me to mitigate possible problems?

RE: Canuck with no medical insurance - prepare for emergenncy"?

according to whom? My regular provider has an eligibility questionnaire and I am not eligible. I've seen the same sort of questions from other providers.

RE: Canuck with no medical insurance - prepare for emergenncy"?

What would be the right kind of travel insurance? I already stated that I'm not eligible for the regular kind of emergency medical insurance.

Canuck with no medical insurance - prepare for emergenncy"?

Last year, I was in Florida for 4.5 months with no emergency medical insurance. I knew that the thing that was stopping my eligibility was bogus so I wasn't worried health-wise. An accident? That would have been a problem. Anyway, this year I had a couple of stents installed so even though I'm 12 months stable for last year's bogus condition, the 12 month clock has started again. I've been checked top to bottom now and I'm healthier than I thought I was last year. I'm willing to chance it again this year but maybe not as long. I understand about jumping on the first plane to Canada if I get sick or even getting a drive home if I can last two days. I know if I'm suddenly and severely sick, probably neither option will work - my bad luck. Does anybody take "supplies" in case of emergency. Like, I don't know, maybe oxygen? Suggestions welcome but don't bother saying "don't go" as that's a strictly personal choice.

RE: Advice on buying a golf cart

OP: This is what we just bought for $1900. 2006 EZGO 36V. Pristine condition and brand new 6 6V batteries. Bought it from a guy in the park that I know. He's throwing in a rear seat that I will refurb over the summer. Otherwise, no work needed. width=800

RE: Leaving a trailer year round in the US.

How are you going to get insurance? I have spoken to an insurance agent and they confirmed with Progressive that the trailer could be insured in Florida. What I,m not sure on if the trailer has to be registered in Florida or can we leave the current Ontario plates on the trailer.Please let me know when you get the answer to that question.
