RE: This WRONG on so many levels...!

That is pretty much wrong on every level...

RE: A richer man !

It is a light controlled intersection with crosswalks. It is just very busy and some drivers are not very attentive. I would probably run across (with the crossing light of course) if I had to cross there as well.

RE: 2000 Triple E Commander Drivers Door power window

Sometimes you can just pull the door panel and see inside well enough to see if there is a physical issue such as the window being off track and maybe even see the motor to see anything obviously wrong. It would be unusual for the window to get off track unless a bolt came out, but you could have a stripped gear in the motor. If you can isolate the motor plug, you can apply 12v to one side and ground the other to see if the motor runs. You may have to try reversing the wires too. If the motor isn't moving the window, it is probably a bad motor. With the one's I've seen, a bad switch usually is a work/doesn't work kind of issue. Unfortunately, replacing window motors can be a giant pain in the rear. Some are easy and some are crazy hard. You won't really know until you get into the door.

RE: Safety issue in handicapped bathrooms

Could you add those adhesive non-slip tub stickers? I don't know how well the adhesive would hold up, but they survive on the tub surface even when the tub is consistently filled with water. There may be some strips available that would provide more coverage.

RE: Dogs Amazing Sense of Smell

I've worked with trainers and handlers for years. They all have told me that dogs can be trained to find anything that has a scent as long as you get the dog to understand what scent (or component of that scent) it is looking for. They are truly amazing to watch work.

RE: New vehicle - MSRP?

I agree that I don't think you can look for a standard percent off of MSRP as it will vary widely depending on the dealer, time of year, time of month, inventory availability (like now), etc. At the end of the day, it is a business transaction. The dealer wants to sell vehicles and you want to buy a vehicle. They will not sell the vehicle if the price is below what they determine they need to get for it and you should have a price established that is the maximum you will pay for the particular vehicle. That is where you will need to do your research to determine what a reasonable price that you are comfortable with. It is a little easier to research new vehicle values as opposed to used vehicles because you will likely never know how much a dealer is into a used vehicle. Personally, when I negotiate with a dealer, I only talk out-the-door price that includes tax, tag, title, fees, etc (I don't typically trade so I'm not dealing with trade values and allowances). My simple reasoning is that it is the final price I'm concerned with and have to pay. I don't really care what number goes in which category. I start at or below invoice depending on incentives/promotions and have a number that I will not go above. If the dealer won't deal, I go somewhere else. They aren't selling unicorns; someone else will have what you want and will deal. I bought a car one time that the first dealer didn't want to deal on and the second dealer did. The second dealer did a dealer trade to get the actual vehicle I had looked at and driven at the first dealership. The last vehicle we purchased was negotiated completely via email. I didn't set foot in the dealership until we had a number agreed on and I went to test drive and sign the papers. I was in and out in less than an hour. I've never had to go to or contact more than three dealerships to get a price I was happy with. Of course, as you know, now is probably the worst possible time to buy a vehicle (new or used) because of the market. We are currently looking at cars, but are making due with what we have until the market correction occurs. Hopefully it will ease in the next few months and certainly by next summer.

RE: Looking for info on Insurance

We've had Progressive via USAA for 10 years or so. We haven't had any claims so I can't speak to how well the claim process would go, but our rates have remained the mostly the same with very small increases and decreases. It actually went down about $10 this past renewal.

RE: MN changing to EZ-Pass

If you travel the toll roads in FL, you will definitely want a Sun Pass or acceptable alternative (EZ Pass is one) as many of the toll roads are doing away with traditional toll booths where you can pay with cash and doing toll by plate. Not a huge deal, but there is a $2.50 fee added to each invoice for toll by plate.

RE: What would YOU do???

For me, the right thing to do would be to let them know. Along the same lines though, they gave you back the same amount you paid them. IE, you gave them $500 Canadian a few months ago and they gave you back $500 Canadian (less the previously agreed fee presumably also Canadian) you really have no other obligation. My answer would still be the same if the values were reversed and the Canadian Dollar was lower vs the US Dollar. I would not expect them to make up the difference in value to you either. They have no control over the money values at a given time just as you don't either.

RE: Electrical question

I agree that once he notifies them of the problem, his obligation has been met. He can't fix the problem himself and stopping the usage isn't an option. Now, the park may come back with an amount owed that he may be responsible for that they will have to justify the amount. To me, it is much like a situation I had one time where I had a store clerk argue with me about the bill that I gave her to pay for my purchase. She gave me change as if I gave her a $20, but I actually gave her a $10. I know it was a $10 because it was the only cash I had on me at the time. When she handed me the change, I tried to hand her the $10 bill back and told her that I had given her a $10. She got very defensive and told me in no uncertain terms that I had given her a $20. At that point, I felt I had met my obligation and left with a clear conscience. I'm sure she thought about our conversation at the end of the night when her register was short.

RE: Scamming the Scammers

Also don't forget that many of these You Tubers have monetized their channels so they are literally getting paid to do this to the scammers. They are funny to watch as well.

RE: Ram 2500 CTD and GM 2500 Dmax up the Ike.

Not much info there to base any decisions on. I have been disappointed with TFL tests recently. They seem to be more about entertainment than anything else. I think this test is not going to significantly challenge most any of the current offerings, so they have to try to stay relevant and appeal at some level.

RE: When to change oil

This thread gets funnier by the day! It really does... :B And the irony is that the vast majority of people change the oil (or more likely have it changed) when the vehicle tells them it is time.

RE: Amazon devices will soon automatically share your Internet

Comcast/Xfinity has done this for a while if you are using their gateway (modum/router combo). I turned it off as soon as they announced it and checked back a few times to make sure it didn't get turned back on when they do "updates" I won't even consider something like Echo or Alexis. I'm not a tech wizard either, but it seems to me if all you have to do is say its name and ask a question for it to respond, it is listening all the time and you have no way of knowing who else may be listening too.

RE: Black walnut issue

Could you cut some plywood to fit over the panels, skylights, and vents with pool noodle glued to the underside to keep it off of the parts and then just put your existing cover over the whole thing. Maybe glue pool noodle to both sides of the wood to keep from having any sharp edges in contact with the cover. Of course, at the cost of lumber right now, the garage may be a cheaper option than this.

RE: Onboard Tongue weight

I don't think they would ever go with something that prevents the vehicle from running. But what I could see as more likely is it storing the info in the PCM and then if you come in for warranty work on the transmission, rear end, suspension, etc., them pulling the info and denying warranty because you were "abusing" the vehicle by driving outside of the design parameters.

RE: Opinion on knock-off batteries for laptop...?

When my son's old laptop stopped holding a charge, I replaced the battery with an aftermarket with no issues. He has since bought a new laptop, but his old one continues to function fine. We ordered one off of Amazon that wasn't the cheapest available, but was still significantly cheaper than the ASUS branded one. Keep in mind that it is likely the laptop manufacturer doesn't make the battery either. It is entirely possible that the aftermarket battery is exactly the same as the manufacturer-labeled batter.

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

My record is Tallahassee, FL to Mt. Snow, Vermont and back in five days with a mountain bike race thrown in the middle. A buddy and I co-drove it. By the end, we were swapping out about every hour. I was much younger then..

RE: How Bad Is "Bad Enough" COVID-19

I agree in looking for a drive-up site if you can. They are running one here that has been great from what I have heard. It requires an appointment. They are having it in a large parking lot. As you enter the lot, they direct you to one of several lanes. Someone does your paperwork and then directs you forward to another station where you get the shot. You then can park to the side for the waiting period to see if you are going to have a reaction. If you have a reaction, you blow your horn and they come to your car. We were able to go to our doctor's office, but I know several people who have used the drive-up site and been pleasantly surprised at how easy it went.
