RE: 2019 Ram 6.4 drivers

It's funny watching the fan responses. My last smoker was a 95 Superduty, inherited as a horse hauler. Hated the sound of that 7.3, bought a 3/4 ton Dodge in 01 with a 360, that I still have. The 7.3 wasn't bad, just as I said, noisy. My Boat was even outfitted in 94 with a very quiet JD Diesel as a test unit they were working on, quiet and non smoking up until 02, when I sold it. My intention now is a gasser truck, if the 5er in a couple years is too hard on the 6.4, I would replace it with what I hope is a very strong Ford 7.3 gas engine. But I wont buy that on a new year for both the engine and the tranny. The Ram with a new tranny makes me nervous enough, dont need two new components. Glad to hear from the few who have had one, that the 8 speed seems to be going well. Thanks

RE: 2019 Ram 6.4 drivers

Looking at gas, 20 years in the Coast Guard, lots of time around diesels and just don't like the clatter or the smell.

2019 Ram 6.4 drivers

Am looking very hard at a 19 Ram 6.4 gasser. Those currently using one with the new 8 speed, any problems? Love it? Hate it? What are you feeling? The last of the leftovers are disappearing now, and I am looking at grabbing one for a 10k lb tt now and likely a 12-14k 5er in a year or so.

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

If, this is true about jail folks for driving through a state under "stay at home orders" is true, it's another great example of govt silliness. Those same states governments are calling for releasing felons because jails and prisons are too dangerous due to the virus, so the cure is to put more people in there.

RE: Flatulence causing CO/Propane detector alarm?

Simple cure, a cork, and some super glue.

RE: What can I do to revive an old VHS recorder/player

I know you are trying to do this yourself, and it's a great project. But, if it doesn't seem to be working there is a company that specializes in this. Legacy Box Never used it myself, we still have boxes of old tapes, but we have looked at this outfit.

RE: My brillant plans

Kinda made you feel like a newby again. Sorry for your difficulties PawPaw, but we've all been there at some point, and sadly, most of us will again. Smile and ask yourself if it could have been worse. Happy Motorin

Park closures

Just saw that Campendium is maintaing listings of closures for both the US and Canada. At this moment the US list is showing an error message but the Canadian one is working, and the US one will likely be back up soon. Thumbnails on the right side of their homepage take you to the closures list. Maybe it will help a few of you that are having to move.

RE: Florida State Parks CLOSED

I can't believe they close state parks. How much congregating goes on there? I know the answer, not much. Simply ridiculous.After a few weeks we're going to have to compromise on this between the economy and a disease. These measures are prudent for a few weeks, maybe, but the economy will collapse after months of it, and people will go nuts. It will happen automatically. Younger folks will refuse to give up their social , party lifestyles. And after they have dealt with a brief 3 or 4 day minor illness, they will press for the social scenes to reopen. And as demand increases, supply will step forward, seniors be damned. It's not their problem, they wont care.

RE: Florida State Parks CLOSED

This toilet paper thing has provided me with immense humor on various threads. I simply can't grasp the concept behind the sudden urge for quality toilet time. I'm on several other forums and toilet paper steals the show. Normally I would agree with you, But, dw is going to her daughters place tomorrow for three days to care for a grand daughter, and her daughter is pretty typical as a millenianal college employee. So I dont EVER expect her to have more than 3 days worth of ANYTHING. It's just something about the age. I'm sending it with her.

RE: Florida State Parks CLOSED

Twomed, I live right between two Va State Parks. Staunton River, and Occoneechee. If you like I will take a ride through either and send you a couple of pics of the open areas. We currently have no documented cases within 50 miles of here. But, of course that is subject to change. I even bought 4 4 packs of TP a couple of hours ago from a South Boston Va store called "Supply Line" just to have some spares. The insanity is coming here, but at the moment it's not horrible.

RE: What are full timers doing?

For now at least Virginia state parks are open. But if possible, I would look west. BLM or forest service lands for solitude, but the VA parks are near empty. Va parks covid page

RE: Park & Campground Closures

The other consideration is that as more folks are sickened and recover from this, people will return to "normal" activities because they are now immune to the disease. There will be a certain degree of herd mentality making others feel pressured, or that it is now ok to go out as well. Self isolation is going to be a personal decision, and the decision as to when you resume a more normal lifestyle is going to be tough for many to determine. FWIW Virginia state parks are staying open, at least for now.

RE: Camco water filter

We use a blue camco on the hose to the trailer. But, we also use a Brita filter dispenser for our drinking and cooking water. dispenser Our trailer has some years on it, and even though the water going into it is filtered, and we have run chlorine through the tanks and lines, were still more comfortable with the additional filtering for drinking water and ice.

RE: Need batterys.

6V GC batteries from all that I have read are true deep cycle batteries that are not damaged by drawing down by 50%. The same can not be said for 12 volt RV/Marine batteries. GC batteries are designed and built for the type of usage you are exposing them to.
