RE: Planning a trip Jun 2020 to Nova Scotia/PEI

MikeJinCO, when you say you can boondock anywhere what exactly do you mean?Excellent question. Boondock anywhere has not been my experience there.

RE: Nascar Follies

I was a big fan but NASCAR has become boring. There's no drama in stage racing. Points this, point that - who cares. What about "Can I make it another few laps until somebody causes a caution or will it be me?" Etc. The super speedway races are boring - sometime I don't even watch them. Talladaga I watch in half an hour and that's just replaying the crashes.

RE: Charging electric car

Why not just convert ecar units to gas car units? Much easier to relate to for most peopleAs long as you use metric units.

RE: Planning a trip Jun 2020 to Nova Scotia/PEI

Make sure you do the Cabot Trail. I prefer counter-clockwise because then you're on the outside and can see better. Go to Baddeck to see the Bell museum. Take the ferry to PEI and come back on the bridge.

RE: Boeing 737 crashes..........why ?

They've improved it to the point that it's almost as good as a DC10. Remember they used to have TV commercials with astronaut spokesmen saying "The DC10 is the most tested plane in the world". Begs the question: why did they have to do so much testing? Maybe Boeing will do the same "The MAX is the most tested plane in the world. We've tested it even more than the DC10"

RE: Mens' belts left or right

Just pull you pants up to your armpits and no one will even notice your belt!

RE: Charging electric car

The old-style truck manufacturers have tow packages. It's not beyond the realm of possibilities that an E-truck could have a toad package.

RE: Charging electric car

If you are talking about outfitting Motorhomes with regenerative brakes to then charge a towed EV, that would require a massive regenerative system to effectively slow and stop a 40,000LB motorhome only for the benefit of a towed Prius. My personal driving experience with motorhomes is I seldom brake.I guess I'm not explaining myself properly or my idea is just too stupid. The bus is dragging the toad down the road; the toad's wheels are turning; the toad's motor(s) are turning - throw in a little regenerative braking on the toad and its battery will charge. The bus has to work a bit harder but there is no modification to the bus.

RE: Charging electric car

I wasn't going to create energy out of thin air. I could be wrong but I thought that regenerative braking uses the motors as generators thereby causing drag which slows the vehicle. I wasn't suggesting engaging traditional brakes (I assume EVs have those in addition to regenerative brakes).

RE: Charging electric car

Ida thunk that with regenerative braking, the EV could charge itself as you drag it down the road. Hey maybe I'll patent that idea.

RE: Still confused about inverter n gen

A UPS doesn't switch. Its battery is being charged or not but the output is always driving the loads.

RE: How to winterize residential refrigerator??

My residential fridge has a water reservoir for chilled water. It's not on the ice tray circuit. Don't you have to winterize that too?

RE: When will the 2020 Ford Super Duty show up?

Parked my 3500 at Tractor Supply yesterday beside a 250. That thing is at least 6" taller than my truck. It was stock. I supposed it doesn't matter for campers but if you have a 5th wheel there won't be any clearance for the bed rails.

RE: Starlink supposedly will be available in 2020

It was a sarcastic comment.

That's what Starlink is for - you're never without :)

RE: Starlink supposedly will be available in 2020

I use streaming and sat. at my stick house. I pay for Netflix, Prime and Crave + internet. There are a lot of other things I could stream but I need my sat. account to login. Streaming doesn't come close to eliminating my need for sat.
