RE: Paging adventurous BayStar/BayStar Sport owners......

One rainstorm and you're done. I'm adventurous, but the F53 is not a good chassis for uneven surfaces. You could always install the 4x4 front axle and transfer case from the F-550 (it's crossed my mind, and it's within my capabilities). Personally for one person I like the TC. For bigger I'd look to a super C on a 4wd truck chassis.

RE: Motorhome builds

If you buy one built from a bus chassis like a Bluebird or Prevost.

RE: Cloud Storage

WiFi NAS (network attached storage) is what you want. Example There are also many options in wired NAS that could just plug into your router.

RE: Heavier engine oil for pulling with Toyota Highlander?

I move 26k all the time with 0W-20. Unless you do comparative used oil analysis all else is religion.

RE: Can you hitch an autoslide hitch in an angled position?

Rotate the hitch, back under the pin, and drop the kingpin straight down into the jaws. Takes precision.

RE: Sea Foam Home Brew (A Link)

I squeeze my own. Direct from snakes that are free range and only eat an organic diet of non-GMO food. I feel all my engines run smoother after a treatment. And it cures arthritis. :)

Welcome! Solar from the get go is a smart move.

RE: Axle alignment after lift?

Really is no adjustment, the bolt holes in the kit locate the axles. If it's straight now, it will be the same after you lift it.

RE: This kinda thing can't help but keep fuel prices down.

In less than 23 years market forces will make plug in hybrids the number one choice anyway. Best of both worlds. Batteries to take short trips and capture energy from braking, combustion for long hauls. As the tech continues to improve that'll be just as expected as aircon and abs.

RE: Top vehicles for longevity

Kinda sad that the best truck has ONLY 6% of them get 200k miles. Even sadder for cars at around 2%. Noting to be proud of. Read again, that's not the case. Six percent of the vehicles on the road presently. There are many newer vehicles in the population just at lower mileage.

RE: Ford shift on the fly - no 4HI

There's a vacuum valve that operates the front hubs, it operates on 12v and switches the vacuum to the front hubs. I would start by checking to see if it's switching the vacuum to the hubs on and off. Vacuum on to disengage the hubs, vacuum releases to engage front hubs. I don't know where it's located on your truck, though. You could trace the lines up from the hubs, or Google probably knows.

I'm with you Ralph. Seems you got under someone's skin.

RE: Hit the scale, how can I be this heavy?

Might want a do over. I had a rig weighed once and it was overweight, and I knew my rig pretty well. As soon as they gave me the weight ticket I questioned it; the attendant re-zeroed the scale and weighed me again. Instantly lost over 1,000 lbs.

RE: New PC Video Card or Audio Card An Asset?

Integrated av on today's motherboards is quite capable, unless you're a true audiophile or gamer or otherwise producing a lot of video.

RE: Would a UPS Fix This?

Yes, a UPS is your most reasonably priced solution. I've used an APC on my entertainment equipment at home for many years to protect it from transients and brownouts.

RE: air compressors

http://www.viaircorp.com/portables/400p-rv-auto/ They aren't cheap. But extremely portable and will fill anything. Top off ours all the time. Used for many years. Buildt very well. Can use the toad battery or MH battery to run it. That's the brand I use. Probably 15 years old and filled countless tires.

RE: Large Tesla Battery

The bigger argument is whether mankind's activities have significantly contributed to speeding up the current warming cycle.I honestly don't know why it's an argument at all. Why are people so ready to take on climate science as if it's some kind of vast conspiracy? If it's an agenda you're looking for, it's a whole lot easier to envision one from the gas and oil industry. When a group of people find their livelihood tied to some issue, I think you'll find that they are willing to do almost anything to keep the money coming. If they were honest they would release the data that they claim shows this warming. But they refuse to do so. That shows that they are hiding something. That's a really good description of the petrochemical industry.
