RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

map40, Which electric car will go 1500 miles on a single charge? I took that to mean he’s driven 1500 miles and not had to use a public charger (i.e. round trips from home).He said WITHOUT RECHARGING.

A/C problem

My buddy has a problem with his Dometic a/c unit. This is a older unit. It may run all day and then just shut's off and comes right back on and continues to do this. It acts like the power shuts off and comes right back. I replaced the thermostat because I didn't understand what he was telling me to start with and no change. Any Idea's what will cause this?

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Just a few for me. Real bright lights at night that light up my site. Dog's that will not stop barking and kids going wild in golf cart's unsupervised.

RE: Tesla delivers there first semi

Sounds good for a local truck but not for cross country.

Good Sam used to mean something but since Lemonis took over it's really gone to pot. I can usually get the same discount with AARP.

RE: Newbie - 36ft vs 41ft fifth wheel

Think about it this way. The difference in length your talking about is likely about the same length as your arms spread out. No real difference you will notice.

RE: Does RV.net have a policy forbidding the discussion of EVs?

No ban that I am aware of. I stopped looking at them because they all start with the same few people here that have them. Only one of them I know of rv's with his. Just not enough to matter for a RV forum to me.

RE: Bad Lippert O ring

Wonder why the lady told me Lippert doesn't sell o rings?? The ones on their site don't appear to be the right size. I did email Lippert with the specs to see if someone else can help me. Thanks for the responses!Have you looked at the pump? Odd's are Lippert doesn't make them.

RE: Theft at a State park.......

Don’t let staying in a State Park give you a false sense of security, I was at the State Park in Lake Havasu in my truck camper, full hook ups, I unplugged my power cable but left my expensive surge protector locked to the electrical post, went around town, came back and the surge protector was gone! I complained to the front desk they asked around and then the Ranger came by with my surge protector! He said the “help” had thought I was gone and took it for safe keeping in case I would return. They didn’t check if I was there another night, which I was, they kept it in their shed, not the front desk, where I would have gone. I told the Ranger I was going to call the City Police and he wanted no part of that, so they credited me with my entire stay for free. Don’t trust anyone or any place…. So someone did a good deed and you became a male Karen over the deal...pathetic...I thought the same thing. I would have been thankful someone was trying to get it back to me.

RE: Medicare For Full Timers

We had United thru AARP for 3 years but dropped them last year as they would not sign contracts with 3 of the major hospitals in our area and also kicked our Dr's out of network. We have Humana Advantage now and it has been much better. Lower co pays and more benefits.

RE: Wheel Bearings

I don't get all the concern about repacking bearings. OP has 800 miles since serviced. How often do any of you repack the front bearings on your car or truck? Its the same bearing set up. Not the same ball game! The front bearings on a car or truck do not see any of the huge side loadings that double axle trailers put on their bearings when they turn or back into a campsite. If the trailer wheels turned like a cars, then the side loadings would not be there and the recommended service interval would likely be much longer than it is now.Really it is about the same. On our class 8 trucks and trailers we would check and service bearings at about 100K miles. True the bearings are bigger but so is the load. I'm not a rookie mechanic as you can tell from my profile and I do believe some folks take the bearing service a little to far.
