RE: Truck warranty

I've seen GM deny warranty because the vehicle had a car wash pass sticker on it. Claiming the "high pressure" caused the driving light condensation. I've also seen a Honda Service Manager claim an OE headlight MUST be aftermarket because it had water in it. Neither one of these were my vehicles but close friends. My Silverado driving lights both have condensation in them that I ignore for the simple fact that I don't have time and don't need the aggravation of trying to get them warranted.

RE: The TFL guys bought a 7.3L

ib516, the early Hemis were solid and reliable. The issues arose when they went to the variable cam system around 2009 which is the Hemis in question. I think the issues are more about the cylinder deactivation process more than the cam phaser. Yes and GM has had similar issues. From what I have read they are sensitive to oil change intervals and quality. If you stay on top of your oil changes they don't seem to have the issues. FWIW a good friend of mine that is a GM tech told me it's imperative to change my Silverado 5.3 by the time the OLM reaches 30% to avoid any problems.

RE: The TFL guys bought a 7.3L

Who are these gas owners and why are you lumping them all together, other than to start an argument?

RE: The TFL guys bought a 7.3L

Not sure why anyone cares about the 7.3L. According to the HD gas owners here, they don't need more power which is why they bought the gas engine instead of the diesel. So why would an engine with more power that you will have to pay more for matter now? Same reason diesel owners have theirs programmed and put exhausts on them. Because they make it.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

DW and I have been camping for the better part of 30 years and we've discussed this a couple times in the last year or so. We've noticed people are definitely keeping to themselves more over the last 5 years or so. In that time, I could probably count 15+ minute conversations with fellow campers on one hand. Even when you offer help to someone that may be struggling with something. Most of the time you just get a look like you've insulted them. And I promise you, we're just as friendly as we've ever been!:W

RE: Help with towing math and trailer /vehicle specs

The GCWR is right in your owners manual. But as said previously, that truck will handle that trailer with no problem.

RE: US post new Mexican travel warnings

I wonder if the State Deparment issues a travel advisory for the United States of America, you go to Walmart you get shot, go to church get shot, go to McDonalds get shot, send kids to school they get shot, drive under an over pass and wonder if today you catch a rock droped from the over pass, or maybe the road rage idiot next to you will open fire on you because you looked at him, or maybe you are at a picnic at the park and you catch a bullet from the drive by? Or participate in a drive by shooting sitting in your living room? In Mexico the narcos shoot other narcos for the territory, in the US inocents are shot for no reason at all, how do you fearmongers explain that? navegator Lol the murder rate in Mexico is 5X per 100,000 the murder rate in the US. To say they're all narcos is pretty offensive to Mexicans. About 1/2 of Mexico murders are drug related, making murders of innocent people still 2.5X more than the US. Not to mention other crimes like robbery. There I explained it.

RE: Nascar Follies

It was about his seatbelt. NASCAR said the seatbelt failed and Simpson said it was improperly installed. He eventually dropped it.

RE: RV Crushes Truck

Why does the video cut after the truck and trailer start moving but before the trailer falls and then comes back on as the trailer falls? It just looks weird. Like something was edited out.

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

We haven't even begun to discuss what happens when it's goes down in the teens for months on end. We have 3 months a year that the highs are in the low 30s and lows are mid teens. Just curious, how do you warm the car/truck and keep it warm, and how much does that cut into your range?

RE: Thoughts on studded tires

I live between Syracuse (125"/yr) and the Tug Hill Plateau (300"/yr) and hardly anyone runs studded tires. You can hear them coming so you always notice when someone has them. As mentioned above, a quality aggressive snow tire is all that's needed.

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

The problem with your theory of buggy manufacturers and diesel trains is, electric cars have been around for over 100 years. There's been mass produced electric cars on and off for all those years. How come they still aren't the "go to" form of propulsion after 100 years of refinement? ---------------------------------- Good point! I wonder if Tesla fanboys also use Unix. The arguments are the same. Ad hominem fallacy and non sequitor. I dont remember seeing or being able to buy any good EV in the past, not until Tesla built it And everyone driving one will tell you theyll never go back to fosil fuels its just that much better and I have no doubt more EVs are coming For mass transport Electric is the best most eficient mover, thats why countries w no natural resources aka oil have been relying on for half a century now with great success https://youtu.be/5SNlG_2sFXc Tokyo underground and subways https://youtu.be/9_3rtS93ilc Apples and oranges comparing Electric Cars with Subways or Electric trains. You do see the wires over the trains right? It's great that EV's work for some people. Again they HAVE been around for 100 years and have come and go. Always because of their short comings.

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

If you want to talk about not going to happen, you should think about the 'electric car' revolution. Barring some major technological development in energy storage the electric vehicles will never become the major segment of the transport mix. Not possible, not enough lithium, not enough electrical generation capacity and not enough electrical transmission capacity. It might cost trillions to rewire the country for 100% electrical vehicles. And the only possible current source of generation that could do it is nuke, if you insist that a minor gas be controlled.Buggy manufacturers said the same thing for years with strong industry growth even as automobiles were small and growing. And don't worry the first diesel train engines were relegated to the switch yard as they did not have the range or strength to pull freight between cities. History would seem to be repeating itself one more time. Either way it will be interesting to watch how this unfolds over the next couple decades. The problem with your theory of buggy manufacturers and diesel trains is, electric cars have been around for over 100 years. There's been mass produced electric cars on and off for all those years. How come they still aren't the "go to" form of propulsion after 100 years of refinement?

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

This reminds me of the Jonestown documentary I saw last night!

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

$10,000 to go from rwd to awd. $70,000 for the 500 mile range(not towing) model. Someone needs to explain how they think the under 25 crowd is going to gobble these up. No one would bother to explain it to you. They just do with 250,000 pre-orders to-date. So you can't. Ok

RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

Wonder what the cops used for PC to search the RV? I mean, it was just a headlight violation after all. Just a guess but maybe it was the smell of 190 pounds of pot??

RE: Using the jack without the battery

I removed my battery to get my RV ready for winter. I go to use the jack and it won't work. It didn't matter whether it was hooked up to AC power or plugged into my truck, it would not work. Is that normal? Yes. Mine is the same way. Same for the slides.
