RE: RV lot OWNERSHIP - deeded lot ownership, live year round

Just make sure you get to read and understand all the rules, fees about the place. In reality, you would be buying property in a community managed by an HOA. That isn't necessarily a bad thing. Just understand fully what you would be getting into. Double ditto. Some places have property taxes too. All real estate has property taxes. If there is no property tax, you don't actually own the lot.

RE: senior pass

At the risk of opening a can of worms and even mentioning AARP, I feel that I must. I was recently told that AARP is going to put their foot forward to stop this action from taking place. Be it good or bad, I just had to mention it. Don't shoot the messenger. The article states they are going to lobby against it. I will be 62 in January (and immediately purchasing my lifetime pass) and personally could care less one way or the other which way this goes. Even at full price the NP camgrounds are one of the best deals going.

RE: senior pass

Off the rails is right. The increase to $80 was done under the prior administration. The current discussion is about restricting the camping discount at certain parks / times of years. Not restricting seniors from visiting a park when they choose.

RE: No more full size cars from GM

There are far more cars than trucks/SUV's in my garage at work. Someone still wants them. People who buy new don't want them. Drive by any dealer and see what's on the lot. When I take my Honda for service I see lot's of cars. Same with my Toyota. Take my Ford truck in and not many cars. Ford started this and GM jumped on board. Time will tell if it is mistake or not.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

I believe it is just a marketing stunt and will never be built. Gotta give Elon credit for creating a buzz, and then banking then some quick cash to boot. Waiting for the slam, Sam. Did it ever happen where Musk promised a Tesla model and ended up never built? There is a difference between skepticism and mental case delusional. You certainly are predictable. You sound like a little boy who got his toy taken away in the sandbox. I haven't seen a Semi on the road yet. Yeah, what are the chances? I have not seen a Rolls Royce Sweptails either and there are already 12 of them out there. But fret not, tweet Elon to send one to pass by your house. Zero to none since there no Tesla semi's traversing the country. At least there is chance of spotting that elusiive Rolls.

But curious why you think this model will be different than the model S, the model X, the model 3 and the model Y which is now in pre-production. Tesla’s track record is pretty solid at this point. Not always on time but pretty solid. Just curious. Gut feeling. As you know I have no dog in this fight and like EV technology, including Tesla's contribution which is propelling the industry as a whole forwards.

RE: 2020 ACA ("Obamacare") Update for Full Timers

Income of prior years doesn't figure in at all. You will need income (like taxable 401K / IRA distributions) to qualify for a subsidy. I don't think SS counts as income under ACA rules. Better do some more research on ACA subsidies if you are planning on one. You need enough taxable income to rise above 140% of the poverty level to qualify. Otherwise your only option is Medicaid which brings in a whole other set of rules. What's included as income Thanks, I see that all SS payments are included in the income calculation.

RE: Fun at the CAT Scales - Kind a Surprised at the result.

15-25 percent transfer to the trailer axles is normal, so you are on the low end. Not sure if a Hensley is different.

RE: full time 101 questions

Before you do anything you need a perc test done on your property to be sure you can install a septic system. Your well, septic and power are going to cost a lot of money. This should be your primary concern. Once those are in place then think about your shelter.

RE: Help planning a Washington State/Oregon trip

We stayed at an Inn called Alexanders while spending 3 days at Mt Rainier in July of 1996. Stayed at the Edgewater in Seattle.

RE: Heading to the Rockies for 5 or 6 weeks.

"I don't know how anyone could tell that I was not using tow/haul by what I wrote." No offense intended but this is what you wrote, sounded like you weren't using Tow Haul: "On the downhill runs however, the engine is still a 3.5 liter gasser when it comes to motor braking. I have to use my brakes more than I would like on the long high speed drops. Today I came down what is probably my steepest, curviest downhill in my driving experience. This road was handled well by the EB because the speed limit was 25 and I could use first gear and had very good speed control with engine braking." If you are in TH you should not have to use your brakes much at all. A light tap of the brake pedal will downshift the trans one gear, no need to manually shift down unless that's what you like to do though it does seem a tad redundant. On a long 5 or 6 percent grade I select a speed that is appropriate for the road conditions and set cruise control while in Tow Haul. This usually gets me to the bottom of the grade without ever touching the brakes or at most doing so lightly and not often. As always... Opinions and YMMV. :C I believe the OP's point was that a 3.5L V6 doesn't have the same engine braking capability as a 5 or 6 liter engine. The turbo is great for going up, but doesn't help you going down.

RE: Full timers warning

Don't believe that story for a second. The IRS doesn't make phone calls asking for information.

RE: Who has switched from a '16+ max tow F150 to a '16+ HD F150?

I would keep the F250 and be done with it.
