RE: All electric vehicles?

The technology is far better than what you realize. Though I don't see electric cars outright replacing gas/diesel even 10 years from now. The more that are in the market however, the lower the prices. The reality is that many of us will end up with electric cars for much of our day to day needs.

RE: Forum dead

There are more people camping than ever. And many Internet forums (RV and otherwise) are alive and well. I personally really hate Facebook groups. It's a clunky platform for these sorts of discussions. Here's my view. Some years back when this forum was really busy, there were a lot of people that just caused a lot of issues. Name calling and backbiting were common. Even the least controversial of subjects frequently went off the rails. Lots of good people got discouraged and left, myself included. Then the moderators tried to clean it up. Then some moderators got heavy handed. More people stopped posting. This is what is left. We seem to have a good bunch of hard working moderators now, and very civil useful threads, but few people left to participate.

RE: Is it possible to transfer a RV without a title?

In Florida I had received a trailer that came with some land I bought. The owner had not titled the trailer. I had to get him and the estate of the prior owner, via Power of Attorney, to fill out forms from Florida to show continuity of ownership and that I was now the owner. After that, I could get the title. I suspect that most states will require something similar. Hopefully for the OP the estate is willing to do this.

RE: Route advise from Wisconsin Dells to Indiana Dunes SP

Don't go through Chicago, you will regret it. Take I39 to I80 as suggested above. The tolls on this route will be about $7.00 in total, pulling a trailer. I just took this route from Michigan to Baraboo WI 5 months ago. It really depends on the time of day you go through on 294. Mid-day is not bad. Still coming from the Dells I also recommend I39 to I80. Personally I would not bother stopping at the toll booths. It's not like the old days when there were many cash lanes. The lines are often long now. You can pay online after the fact so long as you do so within 7 days. In fact their plan is to eliminate cash toll booths soon.

RE: Never thought I'd be asking this question, but ... Sheets?

A standard King size bed is 76x80 and that's probably what the sheets are made to fit. As you can tell from the size of your home King, they are not all made the same. https://www.tomorrowsleep.com/magazine/king-vs-california-king

RE: Washing your rv in the lake

This was at an FLW professional bass tournament that is televised. That is the reason for all of the cameras and it is not fake. Lake Sam Raburn is the first stop on the tour this season. All of the boats that are in the tournament have cameras on the windshield. Trouble is that the cameras were not all from boats. Watch it again. Only one (none of which in the video BTW, have windshields), and it was hand held in the boat. One was hand held from the boat launch, one was right in or just outside the RV. There wasn't really any reason to have two cameras recording a guy launch a boat. How exciting and film worthy is that? They wouldn't have wasted disk space on something like that unless they knew something was going to happen. And the guy with RV posted the footage himself. It was not some random person posting it.

RE: Washing your rv in the lake

And he just happened to have not one, but TWO cameras rolling at the time? Yeah, not buying that one. My thoughts exactly. Two cameras from perfect angles. Consistent lighting and video quality between all cameras. Here's an interesting article: https://www.ktvb.com/article/sports/dog-puts-fishermans-rv-in-reverse-backs-it-into-texas-lake/277-6b77c26f-bfe4-430d-8bf5-22b94b18dd6a Note the line at the bottom:Christian Corley of YOLOtek captured the entire mishap on video. His company website says its mission is to "build awesome products to help you catch video of your once-in-a-lifetime moments."

RE: KOA Membership

We considered a membership back when we still had a pop-up camper and our daughter was a pre-teen. Our experience with KOAs is that they are like staying at Super 8 motels. Some are fantastic while others are nothing more 50's styled CGs are really just dumps. Most are some level in-between. In the end it felt too restrictive to lock ourselves into something like that. rvparkreviews.com is your friend. Look them up before you go.

RE: single axel or double

The notion that dual axles are somehow more stable or easier to handle than single is not only a matter of opinion, there is nothing documented to support that. I've had single axle trailers, one hybrid trailer of which was towed on several cross country trips. There was no difference between the stability and handling compared to a dual axle trailer.

RE: Ecoboost 3.5 Towing MPG Sucks

I'm wondering what the OP was expecting. Also wonder at what speed he was traveling at. The laws of physics still apply. Towing a box down the road isn't going to get much above 12mpg, and only in the best of conditions at 60mph. The average towing mileage is 10mpg.

RE: Water Damage Repair

What you are proposing will work just fine. And putting a notch in for the wires is probably the easiest approach to dealing with the wiring.

RE: Camping World shuffles executive management

Not really news worthy. This is what happens every day in many companies all over the world. Sometimes it helps, often it doesn't change anything.

RE: RV Parks vs Campground????

Marketing nothing more. There is no official definition that you can count on. If you want fire pits or other features, check the website. X2. Do your research before hand to understand what you are getting yourself into.

RE: Copyright Photo Question...

I've had numerous images stolen from my website. Usually an email to the offender, and it's removed. Had they asked, I most likely would let them use it, as long as they quoted the source. However, I've had some websites HOT LINK to the images on my sever. That uses my bandwidth. In those cases, I rename the original image, change the link on my website, and place a "choice" picture, with the original name on my server. Their website then displays the new image. Now that's FUN! Awesome!

RE: open source alternative to MS Office

Libre Office. Unless you have complex spreadsheets with pivot tables or lots of formulas, for most home users it's easily compatible with MS Office. See if she can double check the company license, since she is in IT. I can get the full professional version for $9 thru work...MS throws it in when the company buys MS Office. That depends. They must be a volume license customer and they also must be paying for SA (Software Assurance). Even then many IT depts opt not to make it available to the company staff because they end up becoming support for the staff's home machines.

RE: Copyright Photo Question...

Here is an example of the right click context menu when this CSS is implemented: Photo is one that 8.1Van posted in ATC - Right click on on this image and see the difference. The Save As option does not refer to the image. https://i.imgur.com/z2nF4ns.png However the image can be retrieved from the browser cache. If someone really wants a copy that's where they will get it from.

RE: check engine light

More than likely you need to clean your throttle body. Also cleaning the IAS may not be enough, you may need to replace it. It's something like a $6 part. However, without the CEL code no one can tell you much of anything. Even then many codes are generic and can only be used to help point in the right direction. It might tell you it's a 02 sensor, but it may actually be caused by something else. While there are many knowledgeable people here, you might want to ask on a Chevy truck specific forum. There are usually people that know the ins and outs of your truck and may also know of a common issue.

RE: Copyright Photo Question...

Copyright or not, if you post it on the web, you lose all rights to any picture, text, e-mail, or anything else, including your credit card. If you want to try and fight for private rights, you are going to spend a lot of money for nothing. This is quite simply not true. The post below is accurate. Posting online is not one-size fits all. And you don't have to spend a lot of money. When my photos have been stolen I've had great success simply emailing the one who took the photo. Most people don't realize that most images have copyrights and are happy to remove the images or give me credit. It's copyrighted (but not registered) the moment that you create the image - with or without the copyright notice. The difference between "registered" and not registered images is the $amount$ for which you can sue. You can bulk register hundreds of photos at a time with the US Copyright office ($55. last i checked). Copyright.gov is a good starting point. Even better is this legal publication: http://www.nyccounsel.com/business-blogs-websites/who-owns-photos-and-videos-posted-on-facebook-or-twitter/

RE: Will it pull my trailer?

You'll be fine. And if you do take it through mountains, so what if you only do 45-50?

RE: Rubber roof welding?

That looks interesting but slow. Applying Eternabond isn't as much work as this appears to be.
