RE: 30 amps for 50 amp trailer

There is nothing better than being in a campground with an antiquated 30 amp electrical system, when the folks show up with the biggest rigs they could find or afford and attempt to power them up 100% with dogbones and other methods, thereby reducing voltage in the entire loop or campground. Most are idiots with no understanding whatsoever other than they need to run 3 ACs, an electric dryer, a convection oven, and more lights than on the strip in Vegas, all at the same time, just because they have them.

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

Not sure just because Samsung doesn't garner enough profit from making (mostly inferior, at least the several units we purchased)) DVD and or Bluray players spells out the doom for this media. Talked to a fellow at Walmart filling those massive DVD bins, they fill them several times weekly to keep up with demand, he stated Covid 19 has increased their DVD sales by at least twofold. Somebody will always produce dvd players, similar to all the record/album players readily available in todays market. What Walmart were you in and who was this guy filling massive DVD bins? Walmarts have been shrinking their DVD sections for a few years. Recently renovated/upgraded stores have no DVD aisle at all other than the big cardboard clearance bins and a few end caps.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

So besides Tahoe how many other gasoline/diesel vehicles have stopped production for lack of computer chips? https://finance.yahoo.com/news/chip-shortages-force-more-cuts-230839840.html As people try to make extended time at home more bearable? It's interesting to see how folks react differently to Covid. Personally I have not lost one single day of work nor did I work from home. In fact I changed jobs, actually careers going into another business, at a substantial salary increase. Easy to do when the gubmint pays folks to not work at a rate that is substantially above what they made before, evenn if they did not work before. Free money, free rent or mortgage payments, etc. Now they don't want to work. Probably why I stood in line at Lowes this morning at the one open checkout for 30 minutes to buy 10 bags of mulch. Guess you haven't been to a Lowes or Home Depot on a weekend when the weathers nice out. Every DIY guy and his family are out shopping. It's common knowledge in my family between me and my older two sons that you don't go to HD or Lowes on the weekend. It's been like that well before Covid. During the week it's all the guys with remodel businesses which is booming. I try and avoid Lowes whenever possible. They never have more than one checkout open inside, and no self service checkouts. True, they sucked before Covid. Now its worse as every one I see has help wanted signs out. When you can get more money for free for sitting at home on your ass than working, why work?

RE: Seemingly unsafe location of water pump?

Don't look at the rats nest behind the converter, you might stroke out if you do. Why worry, don't you have an RVIA seal telling you how all plumbing, HVAC, and electrical along with fire safety is up to snuff? It is because they said so. What is the copper line? Propane?

Ok, now you have to 'splan to us how is that related to the topic. But if you want to open up another thread, mods permitting, I will explain to you Keyneesian economics and how the country had a booming economy after Hoover's Great Depression. Or, why thee country became the strongest economy in the world when Ford and other industrialist realized his own ordinary worker needs to be able to afford the cars he is making.. How many cars did Henry sell during Hooves great depression? As far as the booming economy after, thank the Nazis.

RE: How to get a loan for RV

Our credit union charges 8.99% on RV loans, new or used. Too much risk. And they would deny anyone with a legit score below 720.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

Under the administration’s infrastructure plan, this industry will get government support to do it here in the US. ROFLMAO........................Infrastructure Plan? "Out of the $2 trillion, the plan only spends about $115 billion to modernize bridges, highways, roads, and main streets that are in “most critical need of repair.” "The plan also includes $213 billion for home sustainability and public housing, $50 billion for National Science Foundation infrastructure “research,” $35 billion for climate change-related R&D, and $50 billion for a new “Commerce Department Office.” "tax hikes, partisan add-ons, and having less than 6% of the proposal actually going to roads and cities." "the proposal sets aside $20 billion for projects that “advance racial equity and environmental justice.” “There is no reason for an infrastructure plan to include tens of billions of dollars, or hundreds of billions of dollars, in gifts to the already heavily subsidized renewable energy industry.” Could be worse. https://www.rawstory.com/2020/04/never-let-a-disaster-go-to-waste-analysis-reveals-rotten-un-american-giveaway-gop-buried-in-covid-19-relief-package-to-overwhelmingly-benefit-millionaires/ There goes again the political hacks inserting their irrelevant partisan views on topics on posts that are supposedly informational. Put it out there on the political thread will yah! (ok, there's none -- so off to Twitter or FB for you)...:D LOL, so it's okay for one poster to post a political comment but it's not okay for another poster to disagree? Geez sounds like our last admin we had in the WH. Evidently so LOL. It sure is easy to get Yosemites panties all knotted up lol. 99% of threads he starts get closed due to going political and he is always the one who starts it with his sideways comments.

RE: Hot water heater logic board help

The OEM boards are cheap junk assembled from cheap components. That's why they go bad. Replace with Dinosaur board and never replace it again. Dinosaur Electronics

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

Some one please tell me why almost every post in TOW VEHICLES is turned into a Tesla or electric car post. Neither are tow vehicles! What are you talking about. Lots of people are towing little RV's with EV's. We see it here often.Only thing I ever saw about a tesla towing was a U-Tube on how bad it was. There ya go. Don’t buy one. Meanwhile they seem to work fine for those who have them. You might think about being a little more respectful of people who make different choices than you. Adults do that. Or go start your own forum where the only members allowed are those who choose RV’s and tow vehicles that you approve of. Just sayin. Personally I have never seen anyone towing so much as an 8' landscape trailer let alone a small RV with an EV, be it on the highways around DC/MD/VA or any of the dozens or hundreds of campgrounds I've been to. Must be a lot different wherever you are, just sayin.

Really? I'll take that rag of an article with a grain of salt seeing the source. That was not part of Covid relief as it was passed in 2017, old news. Why not millionaires? I have not seen many non millionaires providing employment for other non millionaires.

RE: Trailer demand and prices

My crystal ball said sell TT RIGHT NOW, while we wait for a new 5er ordered several months ago. Two years of ownership, and my take home AFTER consignment was 90% ROI. That is basically unheard of. Sure hope when your new ordered 5er arrives you don't get a shock. Everything I see coming in to dealers lots looks like it was assembled by some class of 2nd graders out in Indiana. I walked through about 12 new rigs on a dealers lot in a torrential downpour the other week and 8 of them were leaking somewhere.

RE: Trailer demand and prices

Manufacturers are still not producing at normal rates, lots of material shortages right now putting a squeeze on new units being available for the demand and that pushes the prices up. https://i.imgur.com/5xHIKUbl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/n7zCRsyl.png How much do you think the above will add to the cost of a new RV? Prior to Covid you could find that OSB on sale for $4.99 and right around $7.00 anytime/anywhere. The $3.78 2X2 was @ $1.29. Not expected to drop anytime soon. A lot of steel items such as concrete mesh and rebar are going to become scarce if not impossible to find, and that will ripple to anything else made of steel fast. Anything containing silicone or polymers are going to go through the roof in price and have already begun to do so. Paper, paint, caulk, you name it. I heard from a local RV dealer that within 60 days he was told to expect to get nothing for the foreseeable future due to the RV Industry grinding to a halt due to shortages and astronomical material prices. Nada/Zilch/0 incoming inventory. If you take that OSB price as an example, that is @ a 400% increase. Is anyone going to pay $75,000.00 for a $15,000.00 stick and tin trailer? Everything in one from the frame to the plastic trim is going to be affected by shortages and the resulting price increases. With the government spending money like water, and attacking the energy sector, you can count on a huge market correction soon, if not a full blown depression. It's going to make 2008/09 and Covid both look like a church picnic. Buying RV's will be the last thing on folks minds when they're standing in line for a bowl of soup. This is what folks voted for, hope they enjoy it. This is unsustainable.

RE: Waited on Canada long enough

If folks from the lower 48 want to visit Alaska...go. Take a ferry or fly. You are not in any way, impeded. Gary HauptNot quite true. RV on the ferries does not allow for freezers to be powered and when you have a 17cu ft chest, a 3 1/2 cu ft basement and 3 door conventional refer/freezer full of shrimp, halibut and salmon, there's no way to get it home. Ferry travel times (actually on the water, not waiting in port for loading, unloading, and waiting for connections is 97 hours. 4+days) I don't care how good your batteries are, that is NOT an option. This would be our 10th trip up and we are experienced with the ferries. Please tell me you are kidding me right now...please. People are making huge sacrifices to try and curb this pandemic....and you complain that you can't keep your freezer cold enough to get your catch home? Gary LOL........... #Cancelpigmanscoolerofshrimphalibutandsalmon

RE: Some things never change

Off to the start of six months on the road.We left earlier this year to avoid summer camping.Didn’t take long actually the second weekend to remember why we didn’t like parts of camping.The weekend warriors with all their barking dogs,loud music,and yelling. Then why not stop doing it if it aggravates you so much? It's a shame some people work and can only camp on the weekends.

RE: Ship truck and camper to Hawaii

I saw the inside the trunk of a fellow workers car that they had moved from puerto rico to the states , a terrible rusty mess. don't think I would take a $60-70 k truck and camper into that type of salty situation. bumpy If a vehicle becomes a terrible rusty mess by spending a few days on a ship going the 2500 or so miles from LA to Hawaii, they must turn to dust being driven for a week on salted roads in the Northeast. Yeah some people have some tall tales. Guy prolly tried to file a claim as well... lol D'OH, it isn't being transported causing the rust problem, it is siting in Hawaii for a period of time. Perhaps Puerto Rico air is saltier than Hawaii? A person in my car pool bought the car so no prolly claim on it. I stopped taking my good fishing tackle to the ocean/bay as one days exposure was hard on it. bumpy Not sure where you are in VA, but if you go west into the Blue Ridge after a January snowstorm, the percentage of salt spraying up on your chassis is prolly more concentrated by a long shot than it is in the air in Hawaii and Puerto Rico combined. You must not catch many fish LOL.
