RE: Great Tow Capacity - Bad Payload Capacity... Increase PL?

Your problem is tongue weight vs. pin weight. For any given weight trailer, the tongue weight of a TT will be approx. half the pin weight of a 5 er. So tell me again why do you want a 5er - so you can buy a new truck?

RE: New truck pricing

So... is there any negotiating when you order a truck? Sure there is a negotiation, they ask you how much over sticker you’re willing to pay.

RE: New truck pricing

Right now the demand is way high and so are prices; and prices continue to rise. Yes one day you may be able to get a better deal (or not) - that day is not today. Some day prices may go down, but it could be 6 months, a year, 5 years, who knows when. So the question is do you want to bet those trucks sitting waiting for chips where built on speculation that is higher then the demand? The reality today is they’re sold before they can get them off the delivery truck. I’d bet that trend will continue. YOMV.

RE: Speed limits

"but as you increase speed you also need more distance to give enough time to react" My statement does exactly that! Faster you drive there will be more distance between you. Two seconds at 90 the distance between will be greater than at 55. I stand by Mr Purvis' drivers ed recommendations many years later. Exactly...I knew someone would question this, not thinking it through! I drove to drivers ed, but was not old enough to have a license yet. D's ed was fun, and I did learn from the experience. JerryWhen I took Driver Ed if any of the instructors caught you driving to Driver Ed, you automatically failed and had to wait a year to take it again. Many of us grew up on farms and had been driving big equipment and trucks for years before we were old enough to get a license.

RE: Speed limits

Asking for a Friend - If I go through the same driver training course cops do can I now drive 10 over without getting a ticket? I"d have the same advanced training they had.

RE: Speed limits

While there may be no evidence that differential speed causes accidents, there is certainly empirical evidence that the greater the differential speed, the greater the potential for having accidents and the greater the severity of the accidents. Hence there is a reason why there is a minimum speed limit on freeways and why you can't drive your moped on them.

RE: forest river salem F21

What year is this trailer? Have never heard of a F21 in the Salem line.

RE: Travel trailer battery not charging

So when your trailer is plugged into shore power, and the battery disconnect in the on position, what voltage do you get when you connect your volt meter to the two terminals of the battery

RE: New F-150 Electric P/U

OKAY,Thanks all of you posters. I will immediately write Ford and tell them that the experts on RV net have proven beyond any doubt that their electric truck program is just totally not feasible. I will refer them to this thread and I am sure that they will discontinue this un American immediately. Thank all of you for saving Ford and its investors from an catastrophic failure and probable bankruptcy! True Americans one and all!Save yourself the postage stamp. I'm pretty sure Ford is smart enough to know the average RV'er isn't their targeted market and that most the people that buy a pickup truck don't tow RV's with them.

RE: Thoughts on a weird/unique way to empty holding tanks.

Ahh - yes, I'm the problem; you on the other hand are doing everything right. Does that about sum it up correctly?

RE: Thoughts on a weird/unique way to empty holding tanks. I want to put what would have gone into the pit toilet a little at a time in all at once.... Plus about 40 gallons of water that would not have been put in the pit toilet if you just sat on the seat and did your business. Brutal but honest truth - You are the type of person that gives the rest of us a bad name. Personally - I hope you get caught; I'd take your picture and report you if I seen it.

RE: Thoughts on a weird/unique way to empty holding tanks.

If your going to drive to a pit toilet, why not drive a few extra miles and just do the right thing and drive to a dump station. A pit toilet is not meant to handle 40 (or more) gallons of waste dumped into it at one sitting. Geesh!

RE: Airstream Nest battery, fridge, solar question?

...How is that possible to keep the power caught up for that kind of use? Even if the batteries are lithium?By plugging into 120v when you get to your destination (assuming you have a converter which is pretty ubiquitous in a RV).

RE: No power to outlets when in battery mode.

We have an inverter. Thank you for the clue. We do not plan to run A/C on battery, I just included it for information on what works and what doesn't.Are you sure you have an inverter? Or do what you really have is a converter? Give the brand name and model number of your inverter and or converter to find the real answers and get help on resolving your problem(s); if any.

RE: FOB keys and theft

Any good newer one will have a rotating code. The next code used is based on a secret value that is embedded in the device itself. This is a two-way device, so the receiver has to send an acknowledgement back so they can both go to the next code. Once you record it, it is too late to use. One way to break hack it is to steal the keyfob, press the button out of "earshot" of the car, and record the code. Since it was never received and acknowledged, this code is still valid for one time use. They can put the key back, break into the car, and the owner would never suspect how they got in.If your going to steal the keys why would you bother putting them back - you got the car which was the original intent.

RE: Armoured extension cord

Now I've never claimed to be the smartest person in a room, but my limited intelligence dictates that I wouldn't run a wire across a driveway in Ontario, Canada; with or without a protective device. Snowplows/snowblowers are really dangerous even without electric wires traversing the pathway.
