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

NO one seems to take into consideration travelers buy local fuel, groceries, and pay fees for attractions and entertainment, including state taxes. Maybe every state should charge the same for all campers, then every state would probably get more traveling campers for longer stays, AND generate more state revenue overall. We cannot ONLY compare state park fees to arrive at all state revenues generated from out-of-state campers.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Thought about it ... as every other day when it's in storage - until next week.

RE: Cybertruck RV prototype pictures released

Not in a million years - two million years, on second thought. The sun will blink out first.

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

Quality and inexpensive do not fit in the same sentence - ever. We can sometimes choose one or the other, but not both. That holds true for most manufacturing ... Computers, phones, RV's, Electronic gear, Trucks. We can cry about price or we can cry about product failure. Personally, I'd rather cry about price, buy a product once, and have it last more than two days beyond warranty.

RE: Erratic fuel gauge

If it's an 8.1, probably a GM ... if so, dash panel might need replacement - cost about $400 ... had that happen to my 2003 in 2008, and that was the issue. GM knew it, but claimed out of warrantee - and lots of GM dash indicators failed in several years production around that time. Some failure of switching relays. Had new dash panel installed, that fixed it. Although several of my gauges failed, not just fuel gauge, but they failed one by one, not all at once. A little puzzling at the time.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

Not so hard to believe when we depend on out-sourcing products we need ... how many of us would pay more, keep business in-house, and get our truck and products when we want or need them. Count me in !!

RE: new topic

Trouble is, there's only ONE average in the world, everyone else is either right of center or left of center. OR, maybe it's above center or below center. So, which is it? How about "Way out there"? :B Monkey44 would agree with Bob - and looking for an easy way back!! :) Probably need a space ship. Meet you at the crossroads.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Would be interesting to see 2019 >>> 2020 >>> 2021 ... especially pickup trucks.

RE: GM and others shutting down production.

Too bad we don't have the know how/technology/workforce/ability/desire to produce these chips in the US. $15/hour minimum wage would make that exceptionally cost prohibitive. No law against paying more than minimum wage for trained and skilled employees. If we had brought that work back to USA, we would not be in this dilemma. It's not just trucks either. It's the untrained, unskilled workers that are not worth that pay.

RE: LOCAST Receives Unfavorable Court Rulling

If you are using what they paid to produce then you should pay them for that use. Too much is too much though ... every few minutes, bombarding us. And we do pay, we pay for cable or satellite so they can show us the product. IF the ad convinces us to buy the product, we pay for it, if not we don't - it's on them to convince, not us. Nothing is more annoying than: Right at an action scene - We'll be right back, after the break - or during a baseball game, cut our Big Screen in half and post some AD scene, again and again. Believe this, if I want something, I know where to get it. AND, if the AD didn't convince me the first time, it's not gonna convince me the next ten times either - more likely, it will make us buy a different brand. And, I didn't buy a big screen TV, so a portion of it could devote part of itself to that same bombardment of messages from 'sponsors'. I understand, ADs, we see them between segments of 'free' TV. But now, it's pretty much a constant - including that band across the bottom. Wife and I have nearly quit watching anything. We do subscribe to some apps, and pay the fee to get uninterrupted movies.

RE: WiFi Camera always late to the action

Yeah - I figured it would be available as much security minded all of us are today, especially in the more populated areas.

RE: WiFi Camera always late to the action

As you all know, M44 is not very technical minded. But, to me, it would make sense to install in instant capture camera that can record to a flash card then send to a SSD or a phone a delayed WIFI signal - like a time-lag. Then you would have instant record, miss nothing, and still have the WIFI signal send it to a more secure device elsewhere or direct to your phone. That might take a minute or to before WIFI kicks in, but not enough time for a 'bad guy' to find and destroy a recording before it sent the signal out. Maybe I'm missing something? Probably :) I do know even ten years ago, we could shoot and record action images on the baseball field - and manually upload and send to our editors via WIFI right in the camera ... it took a few minutes, but that's it - the editor would have the image almost immediately after the shot. I can imagine that technology is quite a bit advanced nowadays. And motion activated - instant on - record - send, and I'd imagine instant record should be available in a fixed security camera even if it waits a few seconds to actually connect to the WIFI service and send video.

RE: New sink in 2016 AF811SB

We did a similar single bowl stainless sink in our Lance - a bit less depth, but works better than the dual plastic one that came in it - where you could actually wash coffee cups if you did it one at a time :) ... New one is perfect -

RE: Auxiliary driving lights

Monkey44: you may want to check and get your lights adjusted. OP: I installed a pair of LED driving lights wire through a switch in the control circuit to a relay to act as daylight running lights. The switch is to turn them off when parking so as to not blind other campers. relay is wired to a good 12 volt hot location and the control is wired from a hot in run fuse location. I aimed the lights slightly to the right so as to not blind on coming traffic. They are mounted lower then center line of headlights. My lights are fine - it's the oncoming drivers that hit eyes high and bright. Manufacturers continue to brighten lights for safety, but eventually will brighten themselves right out of safe driving at night.

RE: Sad state of national parks and forests - II

We'd have plenty of money for campground maintenance if we actually had campgrounds. What we have and some want, is luxury home away from home. Sorry if I offend some folks with luxury RVs - but campers do not need paving, electric, water, and dump at every site. We all are self-contained for a reason. Personally, we enjoy the wilderness the national parks and state parks that are defined to preserve. Camping is not a home away from home. It is enjoying the nature areas and wildlife that are fast disappearing in this country. We've been watching these disappear slowly for over sixty years of camping - we don't need money to upgrade, we need money for maintenance of what we have, not what we think we 'need'... Rant over. :)
