RE: Half ton towing

Experienced towers know the importance of the cargo capacity, but most "newbies" do not. There is very little education for them. Unfortunately, most, if not all, YouTube reviewers, let alone the manufacturers, will tout the amazing number of pounds the truck is rated to pull, yet they never mention the cargo capacity which is the most important number since it's so easy to exceed. I wish all the reviewers would talk about the cargo number during their "reviews".

RE: Running the generator all night

Hello all, so we have been to a few harvest hosts and its been hot, i don't know why, but I am apprehensive about letting the generator run all night. should I be? Does anyone else do this or do you run your generator all night. The only time I use the generator is at a harvest hose like every two weeks or so. Just ask the Host. They will let you know their policy. Then do as they say. This should be what anyone does wherever they park overnight.

RE: Generator/Inverter Mounted over Propane Tanks??

I have been carrying 2 Honda EU2000i generators plus an extended run gas tank, plus 4 2.5 gal gas cans, for a decade and a half. The only problem I've found is the generators are getting heavier as I get older. A little story. In 2014, we were visiting Hoover Dam during our cross country RV trip. I had to go through a checkpoint before parking in the parking deck. Had to lift up the tonneau cover to show what was in the bed of the truck. I had all kinds of emergency equipment, like an air compressor, plus 2 generators and 16 gallons of gas. No problem for the inspector. I was then allowed to park in the parking deck.

RE: Generator/Inverter Mounted over Propane Tanks??

8:00 am starting genset for the first time after it sitting. Pull rope repeatedly, turn key. Everything cranks and spins but it won't start! How old is this gas? Maybe I need a fresh tank. Is it bad gas or gummed carb? Did I use Stabil? Never had any starting issues with LP....and the beat goes on. If the gas generators are periodically exercised, no problem at 8:30 am.

RE: Bad lands area

Many years ago Crazy Horse and Deadwood were 4 star places but they have become tourist traps. You can get a good view of Crazy Horse from the road and save a expensive entrance fee. Gambling has ruined Deadwood unless you like gambling. The boot hill cemtary is worth a short vist. "here lies Less More - four shots fro a 44 - no less no More! Wrong Boot Hill. "No Les , No More" lies buried in Boot Hill at Tombstone, AZ.

RE: Electrical question

Lol, meter is broke. IMO, you did you due diligence... So in other words ,just continue with your free electricity , although you should be paying for it. He notified them. His conscience is clear. He can't force them to fix the problem. Sure his conscience is clear, does that change the fact he should be paying the same as the rest . Sounds like from a few of you its okay as long as he can get away with it, he did his part :h What is he supposed to do? Stop using electricity? If he has notified the owners that the meter seems to be broken, yet the owner still doesn't do anything to fix it, it's not the OP's fault. OP isn;t "getting away with anything". He's done what he could do. If the owner is so little concerned, or so lazy to do anything, it's on the owner.

RE: Running the generator all night

Whats an HH location?Free overnight stays at attractions. https://harvesthosts.com/host-locations/ Of course rather than pay for fuel all night for a generator, it would probably be more economical, quieter and less worrisome to stay in a nearby campground and pay for electricity. Dave Quieter? Maybe. Less worrisome? Maybe. More economical? Probably not. The campgrounds I just visited in the last two weeks were charging north of $40 a night, and these were not destination type CG's, if you get my drift. I might spend $12 in gas a night assuming I'm running the A/C.

RE: New trailer, new generator?

I do, and all my friends who I tailgate with run 2 Honda's or Champions in parallel. If we need air, we run both, if we don't need air, we just run one. Here's my idea, currently I have the Yamaha SC2000i generator (2000 starting 1600 running). I can get another SC2000i for $500 and run them in parallel. I can save myself about $500, I still have a very quiet set up, can only run one when I don't need the extra power, etc... Does anyone else run small gennies in parallel? Thanks Brian

RE: Weight of travel trailer

What is the ideal weight of a travel trailer you can pull with a F-150 4x4 Ford with towing package?? Ideally, if you could find another unicorn like I have, you'd be good. 3.5L EB, 3.73 rear, 6sp xmission, 2,286# cargo capacity, 4800# rear axle. Mine came with Max Tow and HD Package.

RE: The Bowlus is Back

That seems to be for folks with more money than sense.

RE: 1 month old TT totaled?

Agree with the others. Take the money and buy a new one. You have learned a valuable lesson, and fortunately didn't cause you physical pain. With a trailer or other large RV, every thing is magnified. Longer to get to speed, longer to stop. Easier to roll in a corner. Need longer time to pass. Need more space to change lanes. Glad no one was hurt.
