RE: Hard Core Shopping: Best Laptop Buy For The Buck SSD ?

I just bought an HP Envy as well - specs: Windows 10 Pro 64 Intel® Core™ i7-10510U (1.8 GHz, up to 4.9 GHz, 8 MB cache, 4 cores)+NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 (4 GB GDDR5) 16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (2x8GB) 17.3" diagonal FHD WLED UWVA (1920x1080) 1 TB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD Microsoft® Office 365 Personal 1-year Security Software Trial 3-cell, 52 Wh Lithium-ion prismatic Battery DVD-Writer Full-size backlit island-style keyboard with integrated numeric keypad HP Wide Vision HD Webcam with Dual Digital Microphone Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX 201 (2x2) and Bluetooth® 5 Combo (Gigabit file transfer speeds, MU-MIMO supported) Spent just over 1K. This thing boots and shuts down in less than 5 seconds. You can buy direct from HP online or Best Buy. 17 in screen is the way to go.

RE: Burbman Crosses over to the Dark Side....

It kind of looks like you have a new driveway to park it on. Good looking truck!

RE: Trailer Reverse Lights

In my own experience, I get the greatest benefit from covering the tow vehicle lights. The tail, brake, and reverse lights bouncing back at me from the diamond plate prevents me seeing anything beyond the front of the trailer.I guess that only happens on one of the TT's in your signature https://i.imgur.com/nohJdv8l.png

RE: Trailer Reverse Lights

I didn't understand backup lights until I saw your picture - great idea, and just where you need light to be when backing in the dark.

RE: Oops ??

I'm sorry this happened to you - but knowing my luck, the same would happen to me - so I had the dealer install the front bedroom TV mount for me!

RE: Hi from the 'sip

Good info. I just checked and the TT's I'm looking at are rated at around 600lb-750lb tongue weight. This should be around half my payload capacity. This is the ballpark I am looking correct?I checked the specs of the smallest one you mentioned, the Transcend Xplor 243BH - the one you need to be concerned with mostly is GVWR which is 7495. Multiplied by 13% you get 974 lbs which will be your calculated tongue weight - not the 597 stated in the brochure for reasons stated above. Subtract this from your cargo capacity of 1390 leaves you with 416 lbs for stuff like a weight distributing hitch - scratch another 100 lbs, so 316 lbs for everything else like all the stuff you're going to haul in the bed, plus the weight of passengers/pets and cargo inside the truck. One more thing to mention is that air bags or other modifications do not increase payload. Good luck to you.

RE: Oh Boy

Close your eyes, click your heels together three times while saying "Manufactures ratings are fake - I know it can tow my trailer!" Then all will be good...

RE: Hi from the 'sip

If you plan on buying new, the stuff that typically doesn't come with it are sewer /water hoses, tire chocks, tire covers for covering while in storage, patio mat, chairs, small outside table, portable grill, maybe a set of tools, etc. If buying used, then a lot of this stuff may come with it. Either way, you will want a good weight distributing hitch. If you want to rent, take a look at RV Share to find a unit to rent - but these don't always come with a WDH, so you may be limited to local campgrounds. Do your research on payload - don't rely on tow capacity. Figure what you can tow before you start looking. Good luck

RE: How to secure storage area while connected to water?

Continuous city water hookup is dangerous IMO. Something pops when your gone and what a mess. Fill your FW tank and use the pump. ^^^THIS CharlesMaybe the OP will hire both of you to sit at his camper and turn the water off when he leaves, and then turn it back on when he returns....

RE: Website issues

RV.Net is certainly can't be considered a "newer website design". A lot of times, the technology accessing the site is newer and has trouble with older web sites/software which haven't been upgraded. I just switched from a windows 7 machine to a windows 10 - don't get the service unavailable on the old machine. I just hit refresh which does the trick.

RE: 30amp / 50amp question

Just sold my 30Amp trailer and buying a new 50Amp trailer that has 2 AC's. When visiting my Father he has a 30A plug. Can I still plug in my old 30A surge/voltage protector, use a 30 to 50 adaptor, and still have power but use only one AC?Yes - I do this all the time at my home. I run one AC and turn on the fridge - on electric. It would not trip the rig's breaker, but the breaker you are plugged into whether it be a pedestal or wherever the circuit is fed from. And this has actually happened because someone turned on the second AC without me knowing - no plugs were burned...

RE: New and looking for a generator

I bought the Powerhorse pressure washer at Northern Tool last year. Just had to take apart the new carb and found the main jet was blocked. The petcock also no longer works. The old carb was in bad shape from who knows what so I had just replaced it. I wasn't overall impressed with the quality of the carb either - and I run non ethanol gas. Good luck with their generator - but I'm going to stay away from this brand.

RE: A good problem! 5 people, 5 nights, in a 5er

Get the Barker tote with pneumatic tires. I have hauled both black and gray water. Its not a big deal. The handle hooks up to your hitch ball. Otherwise, get a full hookup site for long stays.

RE: Wanting to upgrade truck tires. Need advice.

Bridgestone Duravis. Last forever.These are the tires I'm going to look into when my OEM Firestones bite the dust - not long to go with less than 30K. Costco sells them.

RE: RV Doctor Dies

And to think that some people don't think this is a real problem. B.O. He looked to be about 70 with a large gut. If you're in your 70s with a large gut you should be very afraid, but that's not society's fault, is it. If you're in good health it looks like you have better than a 99% chance of NOT dying if you contract the virus and you may not even know you have it. Obesity and diabetes are a REAL problem.I have (had) a friend, 41, father of 2, fitness nut. He died last week of this. You are a flaming idiot. You have, according to responses on this thread comparing it to flu, lots of company.

RE: Slide out awnings yay or nay?

For those that sweep the top of the slides before retracting them do you work from a ladder or climb onto the roof of the rv? I had thought perhaps a leaf blower while standing on a ladder might be easy enough. I have 3 slides but one will not get an awning for sure as the adjacent patio awning doesn't allow enough clearance for a slide awning as well. I may do an awning on the other two slides so as less to do when breaking camp.I use a collapsible ladder and an electric leaf blower which works well for me. I've considered getting them, but so far have not. Only saying that in case someone makes an Assumption on something they think I'm commenting on without actual experience, because I may or may not have actually stated I did have them, hence saving the need for any rebuttals to my post.
