RE: Vail lake Koa

I'm not a fan of Pala/Fox even though it's only about 20 miles east of my house. I much prefer motocross built on natural terrain like Glen Helen or Cahuillia. Give me big hills and valleys, step on and stop offs instead of a flat field with bumps and its pretty rocky if we're being honest too. Pala also can be insanely busy as in 5oclock traffic busy.

RE: Vail lake Koa

Driven by it hundreds of time on the way to Cahuillia motocross track. Will put it on our radar as a close by get away location!

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Electric car clean? Ha, ha, ha...… Let me show you just one of the problems mining has caused? This coper mine was called "the mine that electrified America." Mining for copper caused this super fund site. This site makes one of the top ten super fund sites in this country. It is such a huge problem just like a nuclear waste site, the fix has to be operated forever. Forever is a long time for a fix. While on vacation a few months ago I got to visit and see this super fund site. Crazy problem. And like I said above, the fix has to be applied forever. Forever! This pit has over 40 BILLION gallons of highly toxic water in it. Check out what happened when over 25,000 geese landed in this toxic soup super fund site. Nice hu? This is just one copper mine. Just one. How many more mines do you think are going to be made to keep up with the electric car demand? Remember, this is just one mineral and does not even talk about the others that are needed to manufacture LI batteries. https://i.imgur.com/h4qP6C8l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/pI0srHdl.jpg A PH of 2.5! Nice hu? Unfortunately reality does not fit their narrative of clean electric vehicles.

RE: I-10 in Louisiana

When we went though 10 was rough and any side road was worse.

RE: New trailer came off hitch!!

I vote the hitch was sitting on top of the ball or a clasp failure as I've towed over 150 miles accidentally using a 2" ball for my 2 5/16 toy hauler without issue. Since that day even though nothing happened I always double check the claps is on the underside of the ball and that I'm using the correct ball. I keep no other drop hitches in my truck either.

RE: Pulling with 1/2 ton

Dry weight is really about 6,600 because they do not include the batteries or the propane tanks or propane in that figure.

RE: When do you throw in the towel?

What about new vehicles leaving you stranded on the side of the road? We have over 6,000 miles this year in my 28 year old truck and honestly have seen probably 5 or 10 new trucks on the side of the road with the hoods up. I can't imagine spending north of $50k on a truck and having it break down, how could you ever trust it again? Different strokes for different folks... Someone like yourself, presumably knows both ends of a wrench and how to use it. What is an "issue" for someone who knows only that the fuel goes in the hole in the side of the truck and hopefully where the oil goes, may not be an issue for the mechanically inclined. No surprise, this topic is as subjective as any... What isn't as subjective is the original topic of rust. It never sleeps. This is true, I do have my fingerprints on the Pistons, internals of the injection pump, gears in the transmission and bearings in the hubs. Now if my computer crashes that's my hole in the side of the truck.

RE: Main power extension cord now a must for me

I keep 30 extra feet of power cord in the storage bay mostly for boondocking reasons to get the generators far away but have had to use one of the 15 foot sections before to reach a pole that was behind our spot in Mesa, Az RV park. Never hurts to have what you need ;)

RE: Using Dryer's NEMA 14-30 outlet for RV shore power

I have a unused 30A 3-wire outlet in our basement access tunnel which is conveniently very close to the driveway and my workshop. Over the years I have made many extension cords or adapters to plug various things into it and as long as you think about the wiring it's a non-issue.

RE: Tow dolly empty - 1500 miles

The only way I'd take it is if I could put it in the bed or on a rack, other than that I'd fly out and rent a truck and dolly one way. 1500 miles the me is too far to drive empty, just fly there.

RE: Anti-seize on brake caliper bracket?

You'll be fine. Have been using anti seize on spark plugs, glow plugs, brake caliper bolts and many other things for decades and have never had one work loose.

RE: Do all campers have a switch to amplify antenna?

Mine has a switch similar to the one posted above but for me it seems to not really help at all.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Again not a expert but forest fires have been happening before man was a thing. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2015/11/19/the-age-of-fire-when-ancient-forests-burned/amp/

RE: Can 4 wheel steer make a comeback?

It will be a good system for the first time truck owner in a grocery store parking lot! Which is where the majority of trucks are used. Hahaha this! I can see it being marketed to the same crowd that wants the $900 folding tailgates and all the other useless garbage just to keep up with the Joneses.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Not a expert but believe creating Smokey the Bear was dead wrong and set us up for failure. Wild fires have been a part of this planets history since the beginning of time but for some reason we must convince the public they are bad and must be put out. I understand fighting then if structures are in danger but needlessly putting them out and creating decades of underbrush and old growth is insanity.

RE: Front Trailer Hitch to move camper

I have a front hitch and two offset rear hitches and never used any of them but can totally see how useful they could be in certain situations.

RE: Air pressure in Firestone airbags.

I can't imagine the load it would take to get mine to sit on the overloads but the overloads are not in the stock location nor are the spring packs. I had 25 bags of concrete on a pallet back there for a little shop shop extension and it still wasn't on the overloads with the 5psi I run the bags at when empty. Seriously considering removing the bottom 3 springs on my truck. All of this is neither here nor there though I guess.

RE: How to deal with grease on ball of receiver

I'm in the remove hitch from truck and store in the forward compartment crowd BUT I do not use a heavy WD system or drop down hitch. Also being a mechanic gloves and grease are always on the truck so no issues occasionally cleaning and re greasing.
