RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

{SNIP} F'g. Trolls You're not in CA so you have no dog in this fight. Stick to the PNW, you have no idea what you're talking about. Very difficult to have an intelligent conversation with ignorant people. Dave, you can delete this if it's inappropriate but so sick of this kind of garbage after all the time I've put into supporting our sport. ___________ EDIT: It's all good. His post is gone now.

RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

This is all thanks to the AQMD. They did a study on OHV emissions based on totally bogus useage data; most OHV's are operated only hours each month. Would be surprised if the average use is more than 5 hours per month on an annualized basis yet they used some BS number 4-5x that amount to justify their draconian ****. AQMD is an independent department that does not answer to anyone, they can and do exactly what they want with no regard to economic impact, recreational use, etc. Do you have a link to that study? The air quality regulations cover evaporative emissions as well as tailpipe emissions, which unless everyone drains the fuel from their bikes between uses, that's still a factor whether it's being ridden or not. But I'd like to see the study that used inflated usage data. A non-compliant 2 stroke can emit up to 50 times more hydrocarbon pollution than emissions compliant 4 stroke engines, even modern fuel injected 2 strokes emit 10 times more hydrocarbons. So even if they only run 5 hours a month, they still emit much more pollution than compliant bikes. Anyone that's camped next to someone with a cheap 2-stroke generator knows how much worse the exhaust is from 2 stroke engines. What is the main drawback to buying a compliant bike? Cost or performance? Don Amador is the front line on this: https://quietwarriorracing.blogspot.com/2021/06/r5-regional-forester-appointed-as-new.html?fbclid=IwAR0YoDw2h4s_ZZ80-LB8OVmOX3qEK1itvX6EgfN9YFm_Aguou5KOt33CpKM Another that was involved in the study itself: Chris Real https://www.facebook.com/chris.real.16 I'm not going to get into it with you. You obviously have a different agenda and we're not going down that rabbit hole. I've been involved in AMA District 37 desert racing for 50+ years and in some very active capacities at various levels of the sport. You are free to do as much research as you wish. Until REAL useage numbers are used it's "convenient statistics". Data can be manipulated in so many ways but if inaccurate statistics are used the data interpretation is useless. And if you have to ask what the difference is between two and four strokes but to compare to a portable generator then I'm done.

RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

You need people who will change the laws. It’s getting hard for bikers and campers in California. Mod Edit: Just trying to keep the politics in check Trust me we have a lot of lobbiests and activists that are well connected in Sac. but the liberals are hard to cross the aisle. and with a super majority its worse. Fortunately we do have allies here and there. As of 2022 model year ALL OHV's must meet emission requirements except "closed course" race bikes. There is a bill in Sac. to exempt "race vehicles" for competition and "practice". The use of these machines in non-sanctioned events is only allowed for "practice". To prove you are "practicing" or "testing" you have to hold a valid competition license in any recognized organization. For example AMA District 37, SCORE, DP4. This bill is moving slowly in Sac. Current green stickers expire next June so this must be in place by then. Unfortunately BLM, a federal agency, is the one that checks the stickers (CA requirement) which makes no sense either. My son managed to score a 2021 Husky 300 so he'll be good. Just had a friend get a 2022 KTM 300 (these are both non EPA complying two strokes). Will be interesting to see what kind of sticker they issue to the 2022. This is all thanks to the AQMD. They did a study on OHV emissions based on totally bogus useage data; most OHV's are operated only hours each month.

RE: Can I safely tow a Fuel 362 with 2020 2500HD 6.6

you're reciting numbers from their website. You need to look at the actual capacities of the truck you have. It should be in the glove box on on the door jamb

RE: Anybody still going out?

yes, done until the fall, not sure where/when we're camping this summer.

RE: Cuddeback to Calico ride

Call out turns AND everyone should wait at the turns for next car ;) Yeah. That was a tough lesson to explain to the newcomers. Luckily the guy riding sweep was one of our regulars and knows me well enough to know when we weren't on the same page anymore. I've been so frustrated with this before and from seasoned riders as well. Had a large group get totally separated when ONE rider didn't confirm a turn. And we were only going form north of Cuddeback to the Husky. Makes it worse when its really dusty and everyone spreads out, or you have one or two VERY slow riders.

RE: Ramp door patio DIY. Whose done it?

^ Yes, load rated eye bolts. Makes sense. I think I'll use something like a 2 bolt D ring type tiedown on the ramp door. I did like Y Guy. Took trailer in to factory once for warranty work and they thought the eyebolts were factory installed and welded them shut. Seems that Rage'n or WW execs were using the ramp on their personal rig as a deck and the eyebolts failed, dumping everyone on the deck in the river/lake. So the directive was to weld them up anytime they saw them. Would have been great to see Warmuth dumped in the drink.

RE: Recommend An AC Unit

you're wrong. They ARE serviceable. Add a suction line service port to charge. First fix the leak, pull good vacuum and weigh in the proper charge. Hey Steve - Ordinarily I'd tell someone to prove it when they make a contrary claim like this, but Nayther is an HVAC guy and I trust what he says. thanks Dave unfortunately we've become a disposable society. When's the last time you took your T.V. to a repairman? Hell, we replaced our washer/drier last year because they were making funny noises but were 20 years old; didn't even call out a tech. The company we've used for years has folded. Servicing small systems like that of our RV units is more comparable to fixing your refrigerator. Don't let someone install a "piercing" valve, they're prone to leaks. Make sure they're brazing in a Schrader type service port: service port

RE: dust problem, new seals fold down door on attitude toyhauler

my 2007 attitude 33' is showing daylight thru the rear seals,,, has anyone found a good replacement seal that has some heavy duty adhesive and is extra squishy for best dust sealing on dirt roads? thanks not seen a toy hauler that doesn't have daylight around the door, especially at the bottom.

RE: Need new tires

Run LT tires no matter what you go with. Cheap and tires are not a good combination when it comes to tires. Agree on the price, collateral damage will eat up any possible savings. You were a huge proponent of Michelin Ribs, correct? Still feel the same? I have an EXCELLENT tire store I've traded with for 50 years so I'm going to have a chat with my buddies at Western Tire. I still run the Ribs, but only because Michelin pro rates them so well every time I get some ozone cracking. I get it every 2-3 years and then after year 4, it is so bad I am not comfortable. Michelin will give me between 40-65% proration so it is hard to start over with a different brand. I will only run LT tires, but some of my buddies run the G rated tires, ST, that are out there. Sailun is one and Hercules is another. They have blow outs. They blame them that is because they sit in the sun in Phoenix. I agree that is not the best, but these are tires that are only 1-2 years old. Even sitting in the sun, they shouldn't be blowing out that soon. I ran Goodrich LT tires on my Rage'n. Had two blow outs on the OEM, tires were out of date though. Thanks for the info. will include ribs in my discussion at Western Tire.

RE: Carrying extra fuel in garage

Look at killing all the 12v in the house (even if the gas is in the toy's tank). I wouldn't trust these devices to be ignition protected. Obviously, you need to keep brakes & brake lights connected. Look at killing all the 12v in the house (FRIG) = Runs off the house batteries. That's just silly. that post was from a non-toy hauler I'm sure.

RE: Need new tires

Sailuns vs. Good Year Endurance, which is better? I assume Sailuns are cheaper. In the market myself but not as concerned about weight since not a toy hauler anymore

RE: Trip Report - El Pasos out of Ridgecrest

Where did you camp? We were at Charlie's Place (Wagon Wheel) from Friday afternoon to Sunday. We were supposed to camp right across the road from there, above Ridgecrest, but one of the guys in our group was having trouble with his moho and he parked at the first spot he could make it to, just past the tracks on Searles. Is it called Dirt Diggers Camp? I thought of you on Monday. I had to take my truck back to Justin to have the turbo fixed. That guy is a wizard. Thanks for the referral. I saw your group, right next to the tracks right? Thought that was odd, told Pam they were using the box cars as wind breaks! We call that area "Prospectors camp" because they used to stage their enduros from there. Digger Camp is north of Searles cutoff then right, big open area east of the RR tracks where they end, about two miles north of where you were. Check your PM's sending you a pin drop request.

RE: Toy Hauler Trip Reports

the new breed of two strokes are amazing. I'm racing a 2020 Husqvarna TE300i and it is magic. My son just bought the Rockstar edition of the bike.

RE: Heavy Duty leveling block suggestions

What are some proven recommendations that some of you have used with success on the same weight trailer? Wood blocks. 2x8 I built some using 2x cross stacked, capped both sides with 1/2" plywood. The plywood won't split, just screwed them together. Makes about a 4" tall block. I cut them to the same size as the lego blocks so they all stack in the same location. I also have an Anderson ramp type leveler, need a second. It works really well if the ground is gravel as it won't slide. We boondock in the desert most of the time and I try to get reasonably level before deploying auto level. Often have to put blocks under rear jacks as I've raised them up all the way for ground clearance. Another is to get ahold of scraps from a construction site using composites, like OSB and Glulam, those products are pressed together and are super strong.

RE: Looking for ideas on hauling bicycles in toy hauler

By the way Nayther... We really must be getting old. When the talk in the Toy Hauler forum turns to e-bikes... Amen bro! Actually I've been eyeing the fat tire versions, can access some offroad stuff that are "non-motorized" and some MTB trails. A desert racing friend has some and they love them, he rides his all around Ridgecrest/Inyokern
