RE: 3000HP S10 pickup tow vehicle runs 5.95 244mph !

Awesome! But what kind of MPG does it get while towing? :B

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

What's missing is the rightful owner's cash. Appears to me like racketeering between different government agencies. Corrupt officials taking advantage of an asinine law! That's why I want to hear the rest of the story, the Federal Government's appeal. Something other than money is missing.

RE: Prevailing Speed

I know of at least two states where the Highway Patrol selects out of state drivers for speeding tickets when they are cruising with the flow of traffic while the flow is exceeding the speed limit. In other words, the speed limit is 65, the traffic is all driving at 75, and the out of stater is picked out of the pack for a ticket. I think you can imagine why this is done. Are you going to share with us the state's you know do this?

RE: RVing oversees

Because we're going everywhere! :) Each to their own. I could spend many, many years traveling in the USA and probably not see everything. Enjoy your travels here, overseas and everywhere! :)

RE: Ideal length for Class A

I don't full time but, the ideal length for us is 37', which happens to be the length of our Southwind. Our next RV may be 34' or 40'. Then that will be the ideal length. It's up to the individual. I think it's easier to drive a longer unit. I've had no problems parking or backing a 37'.

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

There's two sides to every story. :W You are right, which is what happened when it went to court. Both sides gave their story and the court ORDERED the money returned to the rightful owner. Now the state does not want to abide by the court order nor do they want to pay the court costs. So yes there are two sides and the court determined who was right. :R What I found interesting is, a Nevada State Trooper made the initial traffic stop. A County Sheriff made the second stop. The Federal Government seized the cash, were ordered to return it and, filed an appeal with no explanation. It just sounds like we need to hear "the rest of the story." Something seems to be missing. Please post again if you see another article on this, it's interesting.

RE: Mad Max Rig

That's quite a beast. And, it doesn't look cheap. 5 people traveling in that rig? I wish them well.

RE: OMG!...

From the Article: The suit alleges that automakers concealed the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning in more than five million vehicles equipped with keyless ignition systems. If a car engine is left running in an enclosed space when their drivers walk away with the keyless remote on their persons, the exhaust fumes could prove deadly, with 13 deaths in the U.S. reportedly attributed to the circumstances when vehicles were left running inside garages attached to homes. We need a lot more chlorine in the gene pool to cull the herd.

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

When was driving slow a reason to pull someone over? Sounds like a contrived 'probable cause'. Is there a posted minimum speed on Interstate 80 in Nevada? I have not driven there in many years so, I don't know.

RE: Prevailing Speed

the limitations of their vehicle and most importantly...their own driving skills and limitations You are absolutely correct! However, the majority of people are excellent/skilled drivers. Just ask them. :W

RE: Fridge use with no elec during emergency?

It's situations like this that a generator comes in handy. I hope you have no damage or problems from the storm. At least you won't be without power during below freezing temperatures.

RE: Payload rant (sort of)

The only real difference between the F250 and single rear wheel F350 is the springs and spring blocks. Just replace these items. And the F350 badge... all else is the same. How much more do they charge for the springs, spring blocks and emblem when you buy the F-350 :@

RE: Prevailing Speed

In an unfamiliar area I stick to the posted speed limit. If traffic backs up behind me, I pull over and let it pass. If you chose to ignore the speed limits and are leading a string of traffic, you set the prevailing speed. Most of the traffic will go as fast as you. They know you will be the first to enter radar or other speed enforcement locations. While you're getting stopped, they slow down, smile and continue down the road. There are too many municipalities that have a number in their budget for anticipated revenue from traffic fines. I chose to not help increase their budgets. When we travel in the RV, I'm not in a hurry. I pull off the road when needed, and practical, to allow the Type A road rage people to pass. But, that's me. YMMV

RE: "OEM" parts

Wow! If it was a $20 motor you would expect that. But, $200. Wow.

RE: Is my F150 powerful enough?

Check the calendar, maybe it's National Troll Day? :) Could this be a new form of spam?

RE: Fuel Survey

Do you really think they will change their survey questions? :)
