RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

I don't think anyone assumes EV's are going away. However, I think a lot of people believe EV's are not going to be the panacea that some people assume they will be.

RE: Wall socket Power in forward bedroom off

Hi all I have a fifth wheel and Al the power went out except for the ceiling in the main bedroom around the nose and slide and ideas the 15 amp breaker is on and the gfi in the bathroom is on The 12 volt lighting is working any ideas where to check Yes, Unplug your electrical plug from the trailer and clean the trailer connections on the side of your trailer and then use some steel wool to clean connectors on the electrical cord. Blow out any debris. Plug in the electrical cord and remove, do it about 3 times. Then plug it back in. This should solve your problem.That's a good possibility. Sounds to me like you should be looking for a loose/barely holding on connection. Try pulling all the receptacles out of the boxes (if they have one) in the bedroom and check the connections.

RE: Fuel tank leaks when we fill it

If the fuel gauge is acting up in simultaneously with a drip/leak it's sounds to me to be more likely a fuel pump/gauge assembly problem. Dropping the tank is the likely next step.

RE: Bill giving residents priority at booking FL state parks

Well to me I it would depend: who is carrying most of the freight and by how much - camping fees or state taxpayers? Private campgrounds it’s a no brainer. It is obvious that for SP that the taxpayer is footing the bill. I suspect the actual operating costs are all or mostly funded by fees tho. I have no doubt the cg would still be filled up no matter who has preference. Land purchases are funded by a Doc Fee tax I believe. I've lost track how many parks the state has, near 200 when I last checked. The only obvious way to give residents preference would seem to be opening the reservation period for the first X time to residents only. Maybe if there is a six month res period giving the residents the first four months. I am 100 persent for this. They need to fix the online system which is awful right now. Bettter to go back to the old system. You do understand that you're telling the snowbird crowd you don't want our money coming into your state don't you. What we spend for state park sites is only a small part of what we spend at area businesses and attractions.That's a straw argument - I'm pretty sure the Florida residents spend as much money in florida as the snowbirds by about 5 times over.

RE: RV insurance claim - flood

No one anywhere in the world can tell you what "is" or "is not" covered without seeing the declarations page, proof of payment of premium, and a copy of the policy. Any opinion minus those documents is just that "opinion", not to be confused with facts. In short, you're barking up the wrong tree.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Nope, you won't find even one legitimate source that disagrees with what the EPA has published in that link. You can't believe in facts and science and deny climate change (or the net benefits of EVs) when virtually all scientists acknowledge it. As for kool aid, it seems to me that climate change deniers often embrace a plethora of other conspiracy theories.Are you talking about conspiracy theories like J6?

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

The choice of gas cars will be getting pretty slim by then. 3/4 and 1 ton trucks (and bigger) are not affected by any sales restriction so people will still be able to buy those. That and Toyotas I suppose, and Mazda if they are still around. If they don’t install charging infrastructure tourism will be limited from outside the state. In 2035 gas stations will still be common thru out North America but they will be on the decline. So when people from there leave the state fueling will slowly become more of an issue. Maybe in Canada, I wouldn't bet on it in the US.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Grover I'm all for nuclear power, if you can tell me how and where to safely store the waste. Until that happens I'm anti nuclear.I think that is what Groover was alluding to. A lot of people don't want Co2 and don't want nuclear - they better get use to not having electricity also.

RE: Should I Buy The Dealer's Hitch

... If you go the F150 route, get the Max Tow (53C) for the reinforced hitch & a thicker frame... Just an FYI so no one is led astray, although there are several different thicknesses of frame depending on the configurations of the F150, the thickest frames are with the Heavy Duty Payload Package option, not the max tow package. Regardless, you need to choose the vehicle based upon the payload you need and the frame will be appropriate for the load. Clicky

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

I would think automatic shut off shower valves would be a good solution; and cheaper than reheating all the water you lost.

RE: Then what?

Why did CLEAN and ABUNDANT Natural Gas become EVIL??? Fracking caused contaminated wells and gave the industry a black eye. Yes it's plentiful but at what cost? It maybe clean burning but it is debatable how clean it is to produce.The same can be said for any similar activity in the industrialized world; such as mining, building dams, or just manufacturing in general (steel companies were notorious for pollution, communities discharging sewers to rivers - even to this day, etc.). However, with proper technics and safeguards in place, the risks are effectively minimized. Or - we can be perfectly safe just go back to the stone age when there were no man made risks in life. The problem is that businesses prefer to not use "proper techniques and safeguards" because they are more expensive. And we can't trust the governments to ensure the "proper techniques and safeguards". So that minimal risk has a very bad habit of turning into disasters. And anyone who has experienced one of those disasters will tell you it's not worth it.So where do you get your groceries from seeing as you want to ensure everything is safe? And your prescriptions? And your drinking water? Can't trust government or corporations. Need I go on?

RE: Campground

Yes he is going to pay for the full season. That's exactly what 8 months in Denver is, the full season. The other four months are called Closed for the Winter.

RE: question about 2011 Gulfstream thermostat

What is preventing you from setting it to some desired temperature (say 70°) and leaving it there? Does it not shut off and just keep going up and up and up? If yes, does just the fan keep running --or-- does the fan and the burner (defined as - heat output) keep running? Will the burner shut off eventually (even though the fan only may keep blowing air)? Basically, in most instances, the "System" should be set to Heat and the "Fan" should be set to Auto. You should also check the wiring at the thermostat; a stray wire could be touching an adjoining wiring lug. That's the easy problem to fix, it gets more complicated beyond that.

RE: You tube Fulltimers getting squeezed

Ok. I sure would like to see a regulation by some government entity be it local, state, federal where that certification is required. OK, just to randomly pick one, Nebraska. Clicky. Which actually says it’s not even legal to ‘sell, or display for sale’ an RV that doesn’t meet standards under NFPA 1192.These aren’t Recreational Vehicles, they’re stripped out school buses, otherwise well known to NASCAR fans as School Bus Conversions; readily insurable and driven down the road legally (without a RVIA sticker even in Greenwood Nebraska). Undeniably - Sometimes also known to be seen in campgrounds all around the country.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

When I show you the video of the father in Dearborn leafing through just such a book as I described - then what? Do you then claim it wasn’t really on the shelf in their kids elementary school? (Or maybe it’s the updated version of “The Diary of Anne Frank”) Just keep drinking the koolaid - Don’t let facts get in the way.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Would you let your 8 year old read something like Hustler magazine? Or watch XXX rated movies? There is a difference between “banning books” and keeping particular age inappropriate materials away from kids. I should of said “For most people there is a difference…”

RE: UP with hookups

Pick any state park in Michigan, just about all of them have electric. Most will not have water and sewer onsite, most will have a dump station and water on premises. Just pick an area, find a state park nearby, make your reservation online.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

The dealer doesn’t need a memo, he is the first to know what is selling and what it’s selling for. If he still has a huge markup, maybe he knows something you don’t know (rather then you knowing something he doesn’t know).
