RE: Wonder if truck makers will start making 10001 # 1/2 tons.

And another thing, If you all don't start encouraging and support alternate sources,you are doing the nation an amazing disservice. I can guarantee that if we as a nation do not get behind new power,with support and yes, even subsidies, China is going to eat our lunch. They are already ahead on the technology. So go ahead and stick your head in the sand and your dupa in the air, because our grandchildren will be driving Chinese cars or at least ones that China will be pulling royalty payment from.

RE: Wonder if truck makers will start making 10001 # 1/2 tons.

Most of you guys are just amazing!!!!!! You sit there in your smugness, declaring that there will be no electric vehicles, that battery technology will never be adequate, that the grid does not have the capacity,that this won't work and that won't work 1964 your high school graduation. They would yank your diploma and lock you up if you started goingon about a device the same size as a pack of cigarettes,( which you are familiar with because everyone smoked)that could make phone calls, do calculations,display maps and directions, receive broadcasts, and put the knowledge of the world at your fingertips. Tell them about that oven your mom has that can heat a can of soup in 3 minutes. Tell your classmates about adaptive cruise control, collision avoidance,lane assistance. Tearfully shout your goodbyes as they load you into the nut wagon. Some of you guys really need to think past the end of your nose!

RE: Mad Dash for Drinking Water

My mother always said not to eat snow because the Russians might have put radiation in it. Late '50's

RE: Ford Going All Electric in 2030 Too...

I love the mere mention of EV's on here. Certain posters go into mental breakdown and start drooling and soiling their drawers. Thanks for making my day a bit brighter.

RE: Navigation

I realize that I am a freak. I don't route to destinations,just wander in the general direction and fine tune when I get close. I use just a plain ole Garmin.

RE: Not Crazy About Snow and Cold

Snow and cold does not bother me in the least. Much better than 87° and 95% humidity.

RE: Towing Capacity Question

You are going to be heavy,not that it is necessarily going to be a problem. Depends on what you are planning, I would not have a problem hauling 80 a hundred mile to a park. I would not take off for a cross-country mega trip. Yeah OK, disaster can happen on the street in front of your house,but hanging close loweres the odds.

Refrigerator or Cooler and Fan Clutch from what I remember. JimR Dang you sure got hung with a lemon!

RE: Best Company for Extended Service Plan (ESP)

I would not spend any thing. Your travel trailer is covered by manufacturers warranty for the first year. However about the only thing Rockwood is actually covering is the box of the trailer. All components are covered by their manufacturer with Rockwood acting as an agent Anything that goes wrong out of warranty, just pay out of pocket to a mobile tech I know people are on here crying about perceived lack of quality, but in forty years owning three TT's,I have had an awning recalled(covered by Dometic) and a Carbon monoxide detecter go bad. Look at it this way, if you are camping and a component goes bad, trip over,leave the trailer at a dealer for a month two, three, who knows. Call a local tech, he comes out that day maybe tomorrow, he replaces a 30 dollar igniter, with one he had on his truck, you pay him and your good. Rockwood did nothing but design and assemble. All components from the tires to the roof vents are vendor items. I have not spent 300 dollars in repairs since I have been doing this. Maintenance yes, not repairs.

RE: Sway Question

First off sway must be defined. Many call the suck and pull from trucks passing sway. I don't think so. Many call being blown around by the wind sway. once again no, although sway can be precipitated by either of these Real sway can be compared to "death wobble". A combination of events and physical characteristics combine into an unstable condition. Swayis most often induced by being tail heavy and the vagrancies introduced by being unbalanced Personally just from the information here ,I would say 33' is too long.

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

I don't see an issue at this time. I doubt that there is one in a thousand that tow EV,s. In the future when EV's become main stream infra structure will grow to accommodate need. In the mean time, just tell the customer, "Sorry but we do not have the demand for EV charging to make it feasible." Now if you want to go to the expense to upgrade for EV,s, make sure that your capability is upfront and center in all your marketing brochures and advertising.

Should I find a sarcasm font for the seditious part? The point of the OP was to promote a falsehood. There by stirring dissention thereby spreading misinformation thereby developing a cult resulting in January 6th!

RE: Have to wonder how this will effect the EV aficionados

I do not think that article is in the ballpark, let alone correct. That article was authored and published by people with an agenda. You petroleum fetishists need not worry. There will be use for your poison in one form or another for centuries to come. I understand some one having questions about energy sources going forward, but there is NO reason for me to even attempt to understand why anyone would try to not only resist but to actively discourage development and actually put down another energy source. Seems absolutely short sighted and idiotic to me! Maybe even seditious!

RE: Ram 1500 at Load Maximum Woes

I didn't see where you upgraded the parts that actually do the work, the axle shafts and bearings. Sorry but I cannot understand how adding more weight to the vehicle can increase the payload. All you are doing is compensating for the overload. Not any safer at all! OH NANCY NANCY! He did upgrade the parts that are doing the work. He put new springs on. Did he raise the rating of his truck listed on the plaque? No he did not! He did however increase his trucks capabilities and usefulness. It is highly unlikely that he will ever load or haul heavy enough for his axles or bearings even to notice.

RE: Tow Vehicle Liability Insurance

We had USAA, both of us squeaky clean records for more than twenty years. Started off fine, then they started raising the premium each year. Called them and,"we never claimed to be the cheapest" and refused to back down. We now have the lizard. Interestingly enough several days after we switched their retention agent called crying saying they could work with us. Too little to late, they had their chance.

RE: RV Dealers

I realize that I bought my TT before the pandemic but my dealer treated me well. He had the LP tank full, a new series 27 battery (that was less than 2 months old according to the manufacturers sticker,) a very nice stinky slinky, a 35' 30 amp extension cord, a set of legos, 15 to 30 amp adapter, a 30 to 50 amp adapter, 4 door keys, 4 notorious storage compartment keys, he added a heavy tongue jack with wheel and foot, a coupon book for 10 days of free camping no delivery fee, no dealer prep fee, and 15% off in his store for life. Camping World on the other hand wanted wanted $100 for a full lp tank, $200 for a series 24 battery, $20 for a battery box, $1000 delivery fee, $1000 price increase if I paid cash (not using their financing) and a couple of more rip offs. You got a good dealer there. We got the battery spare tire two full tanks, the paper thin slinky that still sits in the garage,because it is not suitable for it.s intended purpose. And a book of coupons for various gear that was mostly useless of horrendously over priced.

RE: Power pedestal wiring question

If the rate you paid allowed 30 amp service, to use both the 30 amp and 20 amp plugs isn’t right IMO. What is wrong with you? Every single response you have ever made is critical,or authoritative. Who appointed you arbiter of which outlet to use. Some parks charge a premium for 50AMP. Sometimes I'll plug my 50 to 30 dogbane in because the 30 outlet is whipped. Should I pay the overage? Stayed in Ely Nevada in the fall. Campground owner told me to plug my heat tape into the twenty. IMO your opinion sucks!
