RE: Portable Wind Turbine as a power supplement?

I would second having a second alternator to charge the battery bank while driving. I would guess in most situations, you are not charging them from fully dead, but rather just topping off since you have solar and the generator to help when you are set up. Way less involved and complex.

RE: What to make of this......

I have to agree. The job would be over for me. I don't mind and have participated in patrol dog training, but it was voluntary and appropriate safety gear and instructions were provided. There is no reason for the handler to not immediately recall the dog.

RE: Assistance for 2019 Subaru Outback Fuse needed

Look in the spare tire well. There was an inline fuse there. I think you have to remove the tool tray and tire. It was on the right side if I remember correctly.

RE: Verizon cell signal lost at night

If your phone is older, you might experience weird actions. I find that I have to restart my phone more often now that it is older. It will start dropping calls or having calls not go through. I can restart and it works fine after that for a while and then happens again. Seems to be about every three weeks or so right now.

RE: Food for thought

Isn't egg salad still chicken salad? Not if it isn't made from chicken eggs. Granted, I've never heard of someone making it from quail or duck eggs, but you could.

RE: Need advise on which new truck - 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton?

You said you guys will be pulling 12 months out of the year. A half ton is designed for occasional light towing. A 3/4 or 1 ton is designed to be worked to the max capabilities every day of the year. If I was planning on towing 12 months out of the year, I would get a bigger truck even though you don't necessarily "need" the payload or tow ratings of the bigger truck (at least not right now!) For the minimal price difference, you are getting substantially more truck. Heavier frame, brakes, wheels/tires, cooling system, etc. Your towing experience will be much more comfortable in a heavier truck as well. You'll get less push/pull in a heavier truck then a lighter truck. This is probably the best advice you've gotten. Personally, I'd rather be on the lower end of a tow vehicles capabilities than the upper end if at all possible.

RE: Bowled the First 800 Three Game Series of My Life !!!!!

That is awesome. I probably haven't scored 800 points in all of my bowling. I was in the lane next to a guy that missed his first 300 game by 3 pins. He was disappointed to say the least.

RE: 2016 Ram short bed 6.7 diesel 2500 payload close to max

As was said, if 2100 is dry weight, you will be way over by the time you add the hitch and anything else that inevitably gets added.

RE: Electronics repair shop needed

I would also suspect there are way more 6.0 Fuel Injector Control Modules out there than there are US Gear Unified Tow Brake Systems. I don't think I'd spend too much time trying to find a solution and just move on. This coming from someone who tries to fix everything rather than replacing.

RE: Foolish Things We’ve Done as Kids

I probably did too many foolish things as a kid than I care to remember. I'm just glad there isn't any evidence. I kind of feel sorry for kids today with everything they do being documented by someone.

RE: Truck flooded

You may also need to be prepared to have your own appraisal done. Depending on the value of the truck, insurance companies will sometimes total a vehicle, but undervalue it on the pay-out.

RE: Leather Sofa Or Fabric Sofa?

When we were shopping for new living room furniture, we were looking mainly at leather. After sitting on some of the choices for a period of time, we actually ended up getting a set that has a microfiber fabric. It was much more comfortable to us than the leather and has held up very well for us and our two dogs. The set we have is just over 3 years old and has no obvious wear or staining to the surfaces.

RE: over nite stops

Not just overnight stops. Sure RVers have every right to use public facilities in rest areas. What I have trouble standing under is the number of RVs you see in a rest area that pull past a bunch of MT spaces, pull into the spot close to bathroom. Then get out of TV, and into trailer. After a bit, back in TV, and down the road. Now, the point is not do you have a right to use that space, but why? If using your own, why not use it out at the end of lot, be polite to the people that must use public restroom? Just guessing, but some may feel more safe being near the restrooms where there are more people than being further out, especially if they are stopping later at night. In all fairness, is see trucks do the same thing. Of course, some are just people that are oblivious to other people around them.

RE: a mix and match electric vehicle

Not to mention that ever passing crash standards for sale in the US.

RE: Industrial Strength Liars

Funny...I posted a few days ago, in jest, on the ATC forum, how we all know used car sales folks and politicians are dishonest, and the crazy lady deleted it. It was on the thread about the dishonest sales clerk, so did pertain! I know...most won't post on that forum, but I still do on occasion. Yep, pretty much a waste of time posting there. If your opinion differs from the Mod, you will get deleted. It's almost comical when the mod will come on and say that if you post something, you have to cite the source for the information (because nobody actually forms their own opinion apparently) and then turns around and posts a bunch of "facts" with no supporting cite. On the subject of sales persons, if I'm just shopping and need to fill out the contact info, the only item they get that is actually me is my email and I have an email that is only used for internet forms. If I ask a question, I always add in bold all caps, letters that I will not respond to telephone calls, only emails. Of course, since I didn't give them my number, I don't know if they ever try to call anyway. I give them the number of a spammer that tries to call me frequently because he is concerned about my car being out of warranty.

RE: RV Sales Push

If an RV salesperson lip's are moving, he is lying. That is simply not true. Sometimes they don't even move their lips...

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Whoa, "start at $35,000 annually, counting benefits". Looks like Elon isn't big into the "share the wealth" ethic. That's about $15/hour. Looks like the people building 'em won't be able to afford to buy 'em. Curious. What does unskilled labour get paid in Texas. Around here it is just under 15 but headed for 15.20 this year.So it takes unskilled labor to build the sophisticated Tesla, and maintain the robotic equipment that I'm sure does a lot of the assembly? So a guy could go from building Big Mac's one day to building a Tesla the next day? Maybe the bus tickets from Neuvo Laredo will be comped by Tesla. :) Seems like there's lots of complaints from people buying RV's, about the quality of those RV's that are built with unskilled labor. Sometimes you have pay more for a quality work force. When I read "start at $35,000 annually, counting benefits" I think of all the non-assembly people such as custodians, the guy that mows the grass, the folks who work the front desk, etc. Doesn't seem to bad for an entry level type position. I have no idea what Tesla's pay scale is, but to say it starts at $35K means that is what the lowest person on the ladder makes. Others farther up the ladder make more.

Glad to see it worked well for you.

RE: Lost continuity between battery and starter solenoid

Given the age, I don't think the wire breaking somewhere is likely. I agree with removing and cleaning each connection. I'll be surprised if this doesn't solve the problem.

RE: photography

I had one Sigma (18-300 Canon platform) that was ok at best. I may have been a little jaded since I was also using a Canon L (70-200) lens at the time. Even though the Sigma as an "HSM" lens, it seemed to focus a lot slower than even some of my regular Canon lenses and wasn't as sharp. Personally, I wouldn't buy another Sigma. My Tamron "walking around lens" is 18-400 and takes much better and sharper pictures than the Sigma I had. Focus is accurate and fast. No where close to my Canon L, but I also don't have the reach with the Canon, which is why I use the Tamron more now. Given the two you are looking at, I would stay with the Sony.
