RE: Leaving Camper on the Jacks

If you are going to leave the camper jacks on soil, I would fashion 4 , 2’x2’ x1” thick square pads to place under the jack feet. I bought a 4’x8’ sheet of 1/2” treated plywood to make the pads, many, many years ago.

RE: Leaving Camper on the Jacks

Mine stays under and RV structure which sits on 5.5” of concrete for 6 months on its jacks.

RE: Battery Powered Lawn Mower

The GE ElecTrac was a very good battery powered tractor and attachments. When GE decided to get out of the lawn and garden business Wheel Horse bought the rights and started to produce them. Unfortunately the public was ready to go to electric powered equipment. Toro then purchased Wheel Horse and ran it into the ground, no more Wheel Horse.Too bad because Wheel Horse was a really good tractor company. It would be great if someone resurrected the ElecTrac line.

RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

Green hydrogen will replace a lot of oil and gas applications. The largest green hydrogen plant in North America announced producing 45 tons/day. https://tech2.org/plug-power-to-build-north-americas-largest-green-hydrogen-production-plant-in-western-new-york/ Here is a giant mining truck powered by hydrogen: https://im-mining.com/2020/09/17/anglo-americans-hydrogen-mining-truck-back-track-h1-2021-first-motion/ Hydrogen can certainly power a pickup pulling a trailer. Europe will replace all diesel semi-trucks with batteries and hydrogen by 2040, just 19 years from now: https://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/Europes-Top-Truck-Makers-Vow-To-Stop-Diesel-Vehicle-Sales-By-2040.html Hydrogen is much more common around the world. Few companies in the US. Plug Power, Chevron, 3M, GM, Baker Hughes out of 109+ companies.https://hydrogencouncil.com/en/newmemberannouncement2021-1/ 200+ hydrogen projects worth $300 billion+ worldwide: https://hydrogencouncil.com/en/hydrogen-deployment-accelerating-with-more-than-300-billion-in-project-pipeline/ Hydrogen fuel cells are definitely the future for HD trucks.

RE: Need a new vacuum cleaner

We like our Miele HEPA vacuum. They are pricey but will last a long time, ours is 20+ years old.

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

Why buy used when you can buy a new 2021 Northstar Arrow for the same or less money?

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

GeoBoy- Awesome thank you, I like the removable black tank idea and the dimensions of that model You will also like the ease in which to draw off the grey water into a bucket. No need to go to the dump station.

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

Shortbed, take a look at the Northstar Arrow 8.5. They are optimized to work with SRW trucks and are a really well built camper.

Buy a B&W Tow N Stow, tri ball hitch and be prepared for any bumper tow situation.

On the positive side GM has 0% for 72months or cash off on 2021 half ton trucks.

RE: Signs of Cognitive Decline

I know for me I believe that when I worked I was very focused, but since I retired I find my mind jumps from thing to thing and my focus just isn’t there. I also believe that my iPad doesn’t help with focus either.

Wow, people these days have NO COMMON SENSE at all. What is the world going to look like in the next 10 to 20 years?

RE: Advice to reduce truck camper sway (2018 Ram 2500)

Thanks for the replies so far! We suspect the slide-in camper is a 1994 Lance 480, but haven't yet been able to find the serial number of model number anywhere on the unit itself. My best guess based on old spec sheet brochures would put it at ~2500 lbs, but yes, definitely time to hit the scales! I don't have access to the truck or camper right now, but will check on the axle rating and exact payload when I do. Based on comments so far, I'm thinking I'll try a much better / thicker sway bar first and see how far that gets us since that seems minimally invasive. And then we'll consider something more robust. Timbrens look very promising if the sway bar isn't effective enough on its own... I don’t believe a heavier swaybar is going to make a big difference. The Timbrens will move the suspension point of contact farther outboard making the load much more stable. They are easy to install and much less expensive than the larger swaybar
