RE: MH trip to Keys & New Orlean lessons

We stayed at the KOA just outside New Olean's a few months ago. It was very cool to see the city, the history and the architecture BUT I will never go back. It truly stinks and is run down. Drifters, drunks, drug addicts and homeless everywhere all asking for your money. Trash all over the place but at least it was in bags waiting to be picked up.

RE: Chevy DEF system failure

Keep your DEF diesel guys. Lets try and do our part to save the planet for our grand kids. Every little bit helps. Save the Planet one plastic jug and cardboard box at a time. Just joking, if does help.

RE: Chevy DEF system failure

Diesel Exhaust Fluid is not being phased out or going anywhere. It is here to stay and so are the issues with it.

RE: 2018 Navigator 6mpg when towing 8k lb camper Ecoboost

That motor is Eco or Boost. One or the other and at 75mph towing a parachute you are in Boost dumping fuel into the motor.

RE: 2018 Navigator 6mpg when towing 8k lb camper Ecoboost

75mph is 23% less efficient than 55mph. THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT THAT.

RE: Interstate 5 or Hwy 99 through Calif

If you think 5 is bad you really should drive the 285 out of Carlsbad, NM or any street heading towards New Orleans, La.

RE: Cummins longevity and maintence

Cummins do not require the coolant additive as they build the engines the proper way which do not cause cavitation of the coolant around the cylinders.

RE: Interstate 5 or Hwy 99 through Calif

I prefer 5 as there are less cities and less merging traffic. The road conditions seem the same to me between the 5 and 99.

RE: F150 Ecoboost vs F250 Diesel mileage

IMO you should really be getting better mileage than you are with the F250D. There is nearly zero aerodynamic load which is what is detrimental to mpg when towing more so than the total weight.

RE: Guys with generators ....

Direct your anger at who ever allowed trailers to set up at a tent only site per post #3.

RE: Lifting and handling heavy generators

No reason you cant run a generator in a truck bed with a shell. Just open the tailgate and shell windows and make sure the trucks windows are closed. Point the exhaust away from anything flammable and fire it up.

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

I fill the trailers water tank and we only use it for showers and dishes. Drinking, cooking and coffee are all made with bottled water be it gallons or bottles. In my eyes its simply not worth the risk of getting sick and if a little bit of extra water makes or breaks your cargo capacity you need a bigger truck.

RE: So what's the deal with weight stations?

We went through one of those kind of stops on the way to Carlsbad NM just outside of El Paso. Was a permanent building and inspection station. One LEO was at each of our windows asking us the same questions making sure our stories lined up and a third LEO with a dog checked out under our trailer and truck.

RE: Is a 13,000 BTU AC enough for a 22' trailer?

It should work out fine assuming it's a quality AC that is functioning properly.

RE: New coffee maker

We used to use the houses coffee make when we traveled which is a big Mr. coffee machine. On our last trip we stopped at a target and got a Keurig and haven't looked back. Takes up much less counter space and a fresh hot cup is just moments away.

RE: Winging it on your travels

We usually plan on the way to a destination and then no plans on the way back home.

RE: So what's the deal with weight stations?

I got flashed by a electronic sign in Arkansas a few months ago to pull in with my truck and trailer. Of course I did not and the wife asked why. I said we are not commercial, not paid and not for hire. Wasn't 100% sure it may not of been a safety type inspection but was prepared to say I didn't see the sign as I have no reasonable expectation to be looking at that sign anyways as a private individual.

RE: Bummer. Gas tanks in F150s

If you can't tow at least 250 miles without stopping I'd look into changing it out. You bought a new truck, what's a little more $$$ to make things better.

RE: What will be your towing powerplant in 10-15 years ?

I like how electric vehicles are referred to as “zero emission”. It’s like electricity grows on trees to some. X2 X3 While the vehicle itself in use is "Zero Emissions", getting there is not! To truly claim that "Zero Emissions" the electricity would need to come from either wind or hyrdo. The batteries would need to 100% recyclable without toxic chemicals, not likely to happen soon. Curious. What toxic chemicals are in batteries. I know lead acid are toxic and can’t go to a landfill but don’t know what’s in a lithium ion battery that makes it toxic. https://www.wired.co.uk/article/lithium-batteries-environment-impact Electric vehicles are not angels.
