RE: Sticky when asked which truck is best to haul camper.

Those are only for pulling pop-ups, get something bigger if it's a hard sided camper.

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

Although an intriguing idea, all EV’s are designed to not function when plugged in. That prevents people from driving away while hooked up to a charging station. It would also have to be a substantial generator. Yah I get that. But I think they may have a challenge breaking both the manufacturers code and the charging standards code. Hackers could do it, but most back yard mechanics are probably not up to the challenge. As well, onboard chargers are usually limited to 8 to 11.5 KW. Cheers. 8-11 kw,,,,, have not even tried the math but, since youre a proponent of these units and do seem to like the tech side of it,,,,, If someone had a 3000 watt genny feeding the tesla truck, (or even a 3) while it was being driven, how much in theory, would it extend the range? This is likely to become a real business in time.

If there is a danger to dogs from this collar, there is a danger to humans also. THEN TAKE IT OFF

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

I'm not a specialist on this, but a question, Since many people run a portable grill from a low pressure line run from the RV system, Why , couldn't you attach a tank with a grill regulator to one of those fittings to basically back feed the system after turning off your main tank? vapor and liquid. No, I said "after turning off your main tank" At that point you are not attempting to fill the tank with liquid, you are supplying a vapor to the system, the same as happens when running from the main RV tank, just flowing from a different source and direction.

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

For those of you that want to pull a trailer with your EV, Some trailer maker will outfit a toyhauler type trailer with a generator for when you are camping, that will also have an umbilical to charge the truck while going down the road, And those small engines, and industrial units don't have to meet all the enviro-whacko rules that auto's and light trucks do, so you will likely see the pollution actually get worse in some cases, although they will be a small percentage of the total number of vehicles out there, and you can still pat yourself on the back for saving the world. Although an intriguing idea, all EV’s are designed to not function when plugged in. That prevents people from driving away while hooked up to a charging station. It would also have to be a substantial generator. EV’s have gauges indicating charge state. They won’t need to be charged while driving anymore than an ICE needs a connection to a tanker while going down the road. Didn't say it would be capable of 100 % of needs when in use. But an enterprising person WILL no doubt find a way to circumvent your safety cutouts, and extend his daily range by maybe 25-50%. And the ICE vehicle doesn't NEED a tanker, refueling takes only a few minutes every six hours or so, until they match that, the EV is at a disadvantage that some people will seek to overcome by a means such as this.

RE: questions about summer heat southeast tx & full timing

Since window, (and I assume vent/skylight) covers are already done, shade has been addressed, there are two other items that come to mind,,,,, Instead of an innefficient window unit, add a mini split unit, more efficient and no huge window opening needed. Also add a water spray to the rv, wet the roof down with a hose two or three times a day, running water until it comes off the roof cool instead of hot. There are automatic sprinkler controls that may be used. hose timer

RE: Autopay anyway!

If it was paid via a credit card, notify your cardholder of a fraudulent charge and see if they will reverse it.

RE: Any innovative ideas for lugging a heavy/awkward generator

Folding hand truck. https://www.harborfreight.com/150-lb-capacity-foldable-hand-truck-61867.html Easy to store, and easily handles the weight with just a heavy bunggee to secure.

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

It's amazing how someone can think their way of life needs to imposed on everyone else even though they don't understand other people's way of life. Welcome to urban liberalism.

RE: Fulltime 5er to MH - Help?

On the toyhauler, yes there are a few, Thor outlaw, and Newmar Canyon Star comes to mind, but I was referring to a 5th wheel TH, the garage areas in many have drop down bunks. That would also provide a "play area" when your toy was outside. Some even have permanent bunks above the garage leaving it free as a workspace. If you are looking at Motorhomes because you are hoping it will be easier to heat, Texas had a very bad winter spell, I doubt you would find a MH much easier to heat, the front glass areas are a loser compared to an insulated front on a 5er, and the wall construction isnt going to be much if any thicker. You may have an easier time finding double pane windows, but those would be available in the 5er too.

RE: Fulltime 5er to MH - Help?

One that you may want to add, https://www.entegracoach.com/diesel/ Also will mention something else, would a Toyhauler with drop down bunks be a possible fit?

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

So low to middle income families will no longer be able to buy a new car. Chevy Bolts will be the prime choice unless you want to go All in on China with the little Kandi K27 for $20 grand. but with only a claimed range of 100 miles.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway - Early April

A +1 for Fairystone State park in Va, as well as a possible side trip above Lynchburg Va at Crabtree Falls. In NC a stop for Mount Mitchell is a decent diversion, highest point east of the Mississippi, interesting that the trees and plants there (Spruce and Fir) look like your in Maine. Take a jacket, temps up there, el 6680' can be cool even in summer.

RE: Will a 100 watt solar panel be enough

I think solar today in RVing is like trucks,,,, Nobody complains about too much truck or too much solar.
