RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

We got our first case of the Coronavirus in our county this week....a person from NY brought it to us. What is that supposed to mean? A person from NY? Have some kind of problem with NY? People are carrying this thing worldwide. That is why it is called an infectious pandemic,literally (infect/spread) (pan) world wide (demic) pertaining to a population. So once again what is your statement meant to convey?

RE: Should we be going?

Thats all me alone. That's what I said. It's all about you. Everybody else stays home but you. Fizz, you are dead wrong. The OP would probably have more Face to Face while in his sticks and bricks then in a campground. The only contact activity the OP needs is grocery shopping and in the right locations even contact there can be limite to one person. You don't seem to understand the authoritarian mind set. "Demand the impossible, you will get the acceptable." RV travel is probably the safest form of travel these days.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

Not to make light of the corona virus as I am sure more will die from it but.....this is for the United States in 2017 Number of deaths for leading causes of death: Heart disease: 647,457 Cancer: 599,108 Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936 Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201 Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383 Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404 Diabetes: 83,564 Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672 Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633 Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173 coronavirus: 298 so far So...try to stay away from crowds....but don,t panic...imo None of those have the ability to tank the economy like Covid-19 already has....none of those stand to tax the health care system to the max and overwhelm things to the point where health care professional will have to make a decision on who lives and who dies . People may not only loose their lives but the economic impact will also lose people their jobs, homes, savings, retirement savings, cars, trucks, rv's....you name it. Seems many folks are just too narrow minded and selfish to take it serious enough...........let's see you post again in 3 to 6 months and see if you've changed your attitude and perspective on things. Nothing wrong with trying to calm people down a bit from the hysteria going on. Yes it serious and I am taking precautions but I am not living in fear. Dan So some random yahoo on an RV page,down plays an epidemic, and you heap praise for trying to calm the populaces panic? Well Alrighty then!!!!!!

RE: Possible stimulus payments from Gov't

We haven't received a refund the last few years until last year (although we did not expect a refund). For many years before that, the IRS always direct deposited, but not last year. I guess they need bank info every year. We moved 2 weeks ago. I filed Form 8822 (Change of Address), but I'm guessing it will take some time to process. I'm thinking of tracking down our old mail carrier (only moved a couple miles away) and asking her if she'll just deliver it to the old address. We are friends with the new owners, so they'd let us know when it came. We'll get it eventually. I'll probably have to call a request they resend it after Form 8822 is processed. I don't think that is going to work,if their system is working. The DPS(delivery Point sequencing) machine should read the address and reject it due to your change of address. Unfortunately because it is a government check, it will probably be endorsed "Do Not Forward, Return to Sender". -Michael

RE: Diesel Brothers

OK and I believe there are better ways to protest the EPA regulations than starting a business to defeat the OEM emission control systems. This has nothing to do with SpaceX or Elon Musk. Two wrongs do not make a right. Protest both if you have the drive. Time why don't you ever criticize Tusk? Here is one day (today) of using his Gulfstream 650 as his private Uber. https://i.imgur.com/TUc6kGul.jpg Do you know how much a Gulfstream burns in fuel / hour? I do. It's almost 2 TONS of fuel an hour. Yes, I said tons bank. On this one 9.5 hour flight he used around 38,000 lbs of fuel! Or rounding about 19 tons of fuel! Tons! Unlike my truck, his toy jet has no pollution control systems at all. NONE. I would have to drive my truck for years to burn what this world saver did in one day! About time the fan boi's start seeing and acknowledging things like this. What has Musk contributed to society that the Bros haven't? Vast increase in knowledge of propulsion systems.more efficient transfer of research and communication satellites from earth to orbit and back. , bringing battery technology light years ahead of where we were 20 years ago, providing employment to thousands,putting millions if not billions into our economy. The bros, not so much 20 or 30 jobs, hundreds of happy man child running around in the desert blowing smoke, grinning and getting DNA samples in their jeans

RE: Possible stimulus payments from Gov't

I was curious, if the proposed stimulus payments of approx $1200 is passed, will the gov't put it directly into our bank accounts, or mail them out instead. i ask because of a possible permanent address change, and personell at my current address won't forward mail. It will only be marked "return to sender". I think it would be handled like any of your other gvmt checks.. All mine go into direct deposit,haven't seen a paper checkin 30 years.

RE: Diesel Brothers

We need to stop allowing Countries to import their products here that don't have the same or stronger Labor and Environmental regulations as we place on our Industries. I bet you people that are so anti Diesel just keep on buying products from these Countries that have ZERO regard for the air we all breath. I completely agree. If they want to sell their products here, then they have to meet the same environmental and labor laws making their products. This is one good thing about the new US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement. All have to meet certain labor and emissions laws for it to be tariff free. I bet all those tree huggers would be pissed if this happened because that would mean their beloved Apple i-phones would be hit with massive tariffs because of the suicide sweat shops China uses to make them. You should also have the same standard amongst all industries, but that would mean Elon could not blast all of his rockets into the air if he had the same emissions requirements as road going diesels. I bet he would lobby to change the rules for him just like all those other rich hypocrites do so that they continue doing what they want. U bout a sweetheart aren't you Shiner in one answer you used Tree Hugger Rich Hypocrite You People come on keep 'em coming, lets demonstrate to all what an inclusive, nonjudgmental group we RV'ers are!!!:)

RE: Germs, viruses and fuel pump handles and doors

Do you have any control over where all that food came from, and how it was handled before being placed on the shelves? I don't, but at least they are handled by commercial employees who at least in theory operate under guidelines and in the case of production, inspections. It's not perfect but better than no control. There's also a difference between being contaminated by a potential source or two versus every customer who came before me. Some "throwaway" things we do provide a sanitary benefit which seems to not be considered in the debate. Honestly I'm not really sure whether reusable grocery bags will cause more disease spread but I'm not sure anyone really knows.I've been doing it for 20 years, so no biggie. I just hate to see all the waste and trash that everyone seems to take for granted. All that **** just ends up in the landfill, or along the roadsides when they're haphazardly discarded. I just choose not to do that. Again, no biggie. And I thank you. NY just went to reusable. I think it is great. Now when I slam on the brakes to see that Snowy Owl in the hedgerow, it may actually be one and not a plastic bag. Speaking of litter, Did you know that McDonalds packaging has a life of about 2.8 miles? At least that is the assumption the **** in my ditch leads me to.

RE: Preparing for isolation to avoid contact with Corona virus

Once upon a time a virus like this would be contained locally till it died off or killed everybody in the village. In today's world there are no borders or distances great enough to isolate yourself. The Spanish Flu killed millions and that was before fast inter-continental travel. I hope this is only a wake up call and we learn what we need to fight the next "big one" Actually the "Spanish Flu" was spread mostly by the US Army. "Spanish Flu" more aptly should have been known as Fort Sill Flu. A recruit from, I believe Tenessee was the first known case. From Oklahoma it traveled with the troop to ports of embarkation in New Jersey and New York. It naturally became rampant in the marshalling yards in France, and when the troops hit the claustrophobic, filthy trenches,it became fully ensconced in the population.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

The plot thickens. The governor of California just issued an order that all Californians must stay home. What if you don't have a home? Or what if your home has wheels? Can you role over to a free state? And if you read the order,there are so many exceptions for this,that and the other, that it is totally unenforceable.

RE: Diesel Brothers

I also think it is a bit ironic that the government is cracking down on diesel brothers yet Elon Musk can blast all those Kerosene(#1 diesel fuel) rockets in the air each one worth the emissions of hundreds of thousands of these trucks. I guess if you have enough money and lobby the right people, then you have free reign to make your own rules and do as you please. Then you have Elon and all the rest of those movie stars/entertainers/sports players fly around in their private jets, helicopters; have exotic cars and yachts living in multiple houses telling use that we should not pollute the air they breathe. That we have to pay extra for these emissions equipment for their clean air. Each one of them probably put more carbon and NOx in the air then hundreds of the diesel brothers yet the diesel brothers are the bad guys here. Go figure.... :h If only life were that simple. The rockets that Elon Musk and several other blast off into space fulfill a scientific and commercial purpose, that will and is advancing man kinds knowledge. The pollution controls on our vehicles were put there for the benefit of all,(socialism), and even though they are sometimes a pain in the rear,I and all thinking people are grateful for their existence. Your desire to giggle and play with yourself at the sight of blacksmoke polluting our sky, is not a right ,it is nothing more than selfishness. With trucks rolling off the factory floor pushing 500HP, the NEED for more power is ludacris. If you want more power ,knock yourself out, but do it within established parameters.

RE: Diesel Brothers

I think if the GUVMENT requirez uz to have all this equipment on our trucks they should maintainz it. You comment is not really worth a reply except to say it smacks of ignorance on your part. Thanks, nice you feel the need to call names. BTW you should put " around what "I" said. Where were names called? If it was the word ignorance that pulled the trigger, someone needs a thicker skin and a dictionary. Ignorance is not an appellation it is a state. In fact the only derivative of ignorant that is a "name" would be ignoramous.

RE: Help Me Choose My Next Unit

You didn't mention 5th wheel trailers. If I didn't need my Suburban the rest of the year I would have bought a 5er. More living space per foot of length and, it seems like, more space period inside. It may be too late to visit the RV shows but if one is in your area I'd definitely suggest attending as many as you can get to. If you haven't decided once camping season starts visit campgrounds and talk to owners of rigs you are interested in. All owners like to talk about their home away from home. F-150

RE: Who's the shortsighted one here

As employee theft is a huge loss to employers we always had the employee parking away from the building. I would think that firing the thieves and doing a better job of screening candidates would be much more effective. Your solution is kind of like closing the gate after the cows got out!
