RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Forums are old technology where new users have to seek them out with something like Google. Then join the forum with a new to them user ID/password. Facebook on the other hand actively analyze what their interest are based on their posts and clicks, then present them with like minded groups to join with only a single click. Much more streamlined and targeted. Forums are going the way of the buggy whip. Nothing that they did, just times have changed. Sad since I met many good people on this forum over the last 15 years. I wish them all well wherever they are.

RE: 1997 Holiday rambler Endeavor LE Ford 460

Good luck, but that 460 isn’t known for back pressure, headers will give you hp. Check your fuel pressure, most likely cause. Ignition module is cheap and easy to replace. Likes to fail when it gets hot.

RE: 1997 Holiday rambler Endeavor LE Ford 460

With that few miles and that year your most likely cause is the OEM fuel pump is still in it. Check to see if it was upgraded to the new one. As I remember the number of wires to it will be the indication.

RE: No shortage of RVs

The economy is currently on a Nantucket sleigh ride. That wealth effect that many people felt is vanishing at a steady pace. RVING is a luxury that is getting harder and harder to justify in today’s economy for many. This week the FED will increase interest rates again, and start shredding money via bond selling. Don’t fight the FED if you know what’s good for you.

RE: 2022 Ford Ranger Flat Towing?

max speed of 35 and max tow distance is 50 miles, so NO no matter which transmission. Page 229 on the manual. That’s nuts unless that’s referring to a standard Ranger without the “option.” Take it you did not read page 229 and 230. I figured you were talking from experience, which I was looking for. Sounds like you were just quoting.

RE: 2022 Ford Ranger Flat Towing?

The 2022 4 wheel drive Ford Ranger is towable 4 wheels down. Many are out there behind MH's right now. https://fourwheeltrends.com/ford-ranger-can-the-ranger-be-flat-towed/ Thank you

2022 Ford Ranger Flat Towing?

Thinking about getting back into a motor home, before I towed a Saturn. If I do get back in I would like a flat tow midsize truck. I saw a reference that the 2022 Ford Ranger was flat towable with an option. Anybody know what that is? I’ll ask a dealer, but they’re not always the sharpest pencil in the drawer when it comes to flat towing. Again it’ll be a 2022 4wd Ranger. TIA

RE: Vacation Home Buying Fizzling. RV's too?

It won’t be too much longer people won’t feel so rich. The bottom 2/3rds are already there. Good thing about living a long life, you can see the bullet coming.

RE: On the road observations

He says almost every day someone calls who purchased during the Pandemic boom asking if he's interested in buying back units he sold them. I wonder how long it’ll be before the repo man starts showing up. I remember well back in 2008 when cranky ape dot Com was loaded with repo rigs from over extended people.

RE: On the road observations

Been almost a month since the post was originally typed. Anyone want to change their minds, or add to the thread? Thinking people are feeling less rich then just four short weeks ago.

RE: On the road observations

House prices are up as is the equity market. People still feel rich. It’ll be awhile till they realize what’s goin on in the economy and how it’s affecting them.

RE: RVing in 2022

My guess is you’ll see more RV’s for sale. The main reason is people will start feeling poor once again. Last time was back in 2008. Record RV sales in 2021. People felt rich back in 2007. RV sales were good back then also. Credit is great for buying things you can’t afford currently. The problem is your future self has to pay for it. If the future is bleak looking, well it’s repo man time again for many.

RE: Tioga Won't Budge after long neglect. Help, please.

If you’re in hill county, how many times has the rig seen the Gulf? Guessing your caliper pins are frozen. Probably old gas is the other problem.

RE: Rising fuel, will it be any different this time?

Other than maybe a train coming, I can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. With no new drilling, federal reserve being tapped on already, sanctions in place, where can fuel costs go? No silver bullet is making an appearance that I know of. Next week the Federal Reserve starts their interest rate hikes. Getting a RV loan will get more expensive and will continue too. Guessing the blush will come off the new RV bloom fairly fast now that easy money is going away. Last time the cost of fuel was raised by greedy commodities investors that didn’t need to take delivery of it. Buying and selling driving up the price. This time it could stay up there for a long time by those same commodities investors.

RE: Rising fuel, will it be any different this time?

People predicting the future are like a stopped clock, once in a while they will be right. The rest of the time, not very accurate. You don’t have to be right every time. Just more often then not. To be good in hockey you need to be good at knowing where the puck will be, not where it was. Not everyone is good at hockey, and that’s OK. Makes not being right every time about the puck still highly sought after players.

Rising fuel, will it be any different this time?

When oil hit $120/barrel pushing gas to $5/gallon it really dropped RV prices and took a big bite out of my snowbirding budget. No longer foot lose and fancy free and see where the wind pushed me. About two weeks ago I was walking a RV park and saw a used 5’ver for $120k. Could not believe it. To me that was crazy, maybe not to others. So how many out there think this time will be any different then the last RV crash and why. What is true for RV’s should also hold true for home value, just will take more time since they are needs vs wants. Home value is crazy high also IMO.

RE: Recent report on RV sales in January 2022

I didn’t feel this good since 2007. 2008 the bottom fell out of the equity market 2021 was easy money, easy credit. Invest in the market, make money, and pay low interest loans on big ticket items that other will have envy toward you. Genius!!! Go big, or go home. At least that’s what the young bucks thought. Won’t be long now till envy is replaced by the repo man. Remember CrazyApe.com, back in 2008? Well here we go again. Sorry, hope you learn like the old bulls did.
