RE: Cleaning top of slideout

A slide topper prolongs the life of your roof. No harmful UV rays degrading it. Once installed (2 hour job at most), it will last 15 years.As the OP stated: "I do not want an awning on the slide for several reasons." Let's let the slide topper discussion languish, due to lack of interest by the OP. I guess people like you know everything there is to know. I responded to let some that WILL be interested and do not know everything, so they know how to care for THEIR slide covers. Doug P.S what does it harm YOU to keep a discussion going????????????????????It does me no harm, obviously, but it's how you end up with thread drift, and the discussion ends up having little to do with what the OP originally asked. You want to have a discussion about slide toppers? No problem, start your own thread. The OP doesn't want slide toppers, so why not stick to suggestions along the line of what he wants? How hard is that? Besides slide toppers have been discussed to death and usually end up with a rancorous argument and the thread gets closed.

RE: Cleaning top of slideout

Toppers will mold when retracted wet and not extended soon after to dry. When I stated to retract, you do this to REMOVE the accumulated water and then extend after it sheds the water. DougIt's a moot point, the OP has already stated he isn't interested in slide toppers. No sense arguing about it. And they get moldy, so what.

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

We have had even a 26 gallon diesel tank on an older truck. The bottom line for us is we have to pee no matter how big the tank LOLWell, nobody forces you to stay in the truck until you get low on gas, but it's nice to stop at someplace nicer to use the facilities instead of a stinky, noisy, crowded gas station. And it's nice that you get to pick the place to stop, not the truck.

RE: MOTOR OIL ?

"I’m confused by the second part....someone recommended changing wiper blades, you refused, the blades fell apart and you blamed the service manager?" He said it was raining when he came in, and obviously the wipers were working, when he used them later, after being assured he needed new wipers, the wipers fell apart. Seems very coincidental to me. I'd think that the guy messed with them too, and I would probably have reacted the same.

RE: Creative Towing

Well, I don't know that I've noticed "increasing number of Americans and Canadians are going to Class 8's. or Toterhomes". Maybe, maybe not. Are there hard numbers to back up these statements? As was mentioned the attraction for these large semis is going to stay pretty small because of the impracticality of them. IMO anyway. What do you do with them when you aren't moving your trailer? Not exactly practical for day-to-day usage. Some will use them, but the numbers will stay small in the US anyway. Suppose we can get over the Richard measuring now? What works in Australia will work to a limited degree here, and vice versa. That makes neither superior to the other overall, just better in their home market. I'll have to admit I don't understand the need to prove that the Aussie trucks are better.

RE: It is no wonder

Ah, I see. I have had that pop up on other sites a couple of times. It could definitely become annoying with frequent interruptions.

RE: Stay off the ice! 3 Trucks and TT go through ice into lake.

Gotta wonder about what some people think when they drive onto a frozen lake too early in the season.... 3 trucks and TT go for a cold swim I see the ad already: Slightly used truck and camper for sale,well maintained :B You forgot the obligatory, "Slight water intrusion".

RE: It is no wonder

I must admit I'm at a bit of a loss, my experience with the Capcha was a non-event. The page came up when I clicked "Post Message", I clicked the box, and the post finished posting. You all must be getting something that I'm not. It barely ranks as an inconvenience.

RE: Creative Towing

Pickup truck diesels are gutless compared to big truck engines.Suppose that has something to do with comparable sizes?

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

Yes, there are several different brands out there, with prices all over the map. They aren't as common as diesel auxiliary tanks, but they do exist. It would probably be easiest to google "Auxiliary gasoline tanks". You should get a lot of hits, and decide where to go from there. I have a 36 gallon tank for my diesel and it is wonderful. Very much a worthwhile investment IMO.

RE: All battery/electric bus fleet

Best way to gain knowledge is to get out there are do the impossible. Fear of failure and setbacks holds too many people down in life.Sounds good, but are you willing to foot the bill when cities do a lousy job because they basically have little accountability?

RE: Worst RV Brand List

Since they didn't separate by percentages sold versus percentage of complaints, it would only seem logical that those that sold the most are going to be cited with the most complaints.

RE: Creative Towing

We are a bit sheltered here in the US.Sheltered? Because we don't have many different models that aim toward a niche market here? Let's face it, we don't really have much of a market for the heavy-duty off-road tow vehicles that are popular in Australia. Very limited use in the US. Which is why I posted the relative number of miles of paved road here versus Australia. Look at a population density map of Australia, and notice the huge, I mean really huge, areas of very low population density. Now compare that to the US, and it becomes pretty evident why what works in Australia isn't really necessary here, except in a few instances. Here, those trucks would just be mostly posturing, like owning a Hummer. You can be glad of what's available in your own country without feeling the need to try and feel that others are missing out because they don't have, or need, what you think is so wonderful. It's not superior, just different.

RE: Creative Towing

Considering the fewer number of miles of highway in Australia compared to the US, those heavy duty trucks would come in handy. US highway: 4.3 million km of paved road. Australia highway: 823,000 km of paved road.

RE: Creative Towing

And don't forget the Australian government seems to have very strict requirements for their trailers, from what I've read. Not as freeform as the US rules and regs. No has no restrictions you can run things you cannot run in the US. What is missing in the US is the type of trucks, bulk of them do not existSorry, I thought I had read about the requirement for serious suspension, including shocks, on trailers over a certain weight.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

Most recent timeline for CyberTruck build: Tesla wrote about each model on that page: Single Motor RWD: “Fully refundable. You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in late 2021. Single Motor RWD production is expected to begin in late 2022.” Dual Motor AWD: “Fully refundable. You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in late 2021. Dual Motor AWD production is expected in late 2021.” Tri Motor AWD: “Fully refundable. You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in late 2021. Tri Motor AWD production is expected in late 2021.” https://electrek.co/2019/12/06/tesla-cybertruck-production-timeline-update-orders/ and wow... 250,000+ preordersBut the key word there is "refundable". How many of these orders would still exist were there not that word in the order form? That would tell the real tale.

RE: It is no wonder

"When people realize that there’s nothing new to read or discover, they move on." Almost no forums can boast of new content every day, or every week AFATG. If it's a useful forum, everything has mostly been talked about many times. Occasionally something new comes along, but not often.
