RE: Tent Camping Forum

I still camp in tents at 72 because it is not possible to drive to the really good places. We still tent also and hope to still be able to when we're 72. :)

RE: Anode Rod Wear

It's this rod. I'll just plan on buying a new one before camping season. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075MNVPSX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52515782873_a03ee8854a_z.jpg lots of life left for those two rods

RE: Bedding Brakes

Shade tree mechanic here. Like it's been said, "follow the manufacturer instructions" because it's not a requirement for all. I just did the front brakes on my 2500hd using ACDelco Gold Enhanced Performance Severe Duty Rotors and no where does it say anything about a "bedding" procedure, just pump the pedal to push the caliper piston against the pads.

RE: Dino juice v Electrons....

Lots of things are missing, cost of electricity only being one of many. If the gov has to mandate them for We the People to buy them there must be a problem. If they were affordable, dependable, and capable - they would sell themselves. We the People aren’t stupid, we’re realists. Yep, the gov could not even commit to all ev for the postal service, it started at 10% for all new vehicles and then got shamed into going 40%.

RE: Cost of EV Batteries

rivian-electric-van-impresses-amazon-delivery-drivers/ That's great! Leaves more fossil fuels for Bezos's mega yacht and bazillionaire lifestyle. This is the problem I have with this whole "ram the EV's down our throat" "new green deal" movement. Until I see them (meaning the powers that be) practicing what they preach, I'm not playing. Not to be outdone, John Kerry is probably taking his private jet as we speak to go and order a bigger yacht.

RE: Fender flares for 2014-2018 Silverado

Instead of asking for help with fender flares on a RV tow vehicle forum, why not go to one of many actual truck forums where you will probably get answers to your questions...or make a few phone calls to some of the sellers of said fender flares, geez :R Because this is a TOW VEHICLE forum, and people here accessorize their tow vehicles. I'm asking about an accessory for one of my tow vehicles to make it look better, but as per usual, everyone is hung up in the "why." I was hoping it might be a refreshing change from the typical Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge, Gas vs. Diesel, my 1/2 ton will tow a space shuttle vs. you need a 1 ton dually to tow a roller skate arguments. Oh and the 768 page discussions about how electric will never be any good. The "actual truck forums" were much worse. Vendors sell thousands of products. You can't expect a phone operator working for minimum wage to know every detail about everything they sell. Everything the vendor knows about the product is on the website. Besides, they're not going to tell you that anything they sell is poor quality, difficult to install, or won't meet your needs. It's called real world experience. So, thanks for well, nothing, everyone. Back to your regularly scheduled program. It's probably just me, but the snarky responses don't help.

RE: Fender flares for 2014-2018 Silverado

Grit, old buddy old pal, This isn't my first rodeo. You can grind and sand and wire wheel and paint all you want but you are only covering up the OUTSIDE. You can't get to the INSIDE, which is where it's rusting from, without cutting out the old metal. Once the paint is blistering on the outside, it's rusting through from the inside. ...and that's EXACTLY what I want, someone to say, "Hey this Brand X are easy to install and they cover up 2.5" from the edge of the wheel well opening." Even someone to say, "Hey, this brand X is easy to install and are a great value for the price." You don't need to know how much I want to repair. For such a smart guy you are having a tough time wrapping your head around such a simple question.

RE: 2023 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon

Diesel still might be an option for the smaller trucks. New Diesel

RE: 2022 Silverado 3.0 update

Good report. It's shame that diesels are probably on the way out and Chevy's latest release of the Colorado no longer includes a diesel option. GM is dropping the current 3.0, but replacing it with a new version for 2023. New Duramax Yes and it sounds like some good changes are coming, but I still believe diesels are being targeted by the EPA and worry they will be the first victom of the EV/EPA push. That's why I waited 3 years to buy mine. The new ones may have issues and I would still would have waited at least two years to buy one to be sure they were ok. Remember the LBZ back in 2007? It's now one of the most desirable Duramax engines. I didn't want to wait and I am totally satisfied with what sits in the driveway! Just curious what your payload # is?

RE: EV's need gas too - Tow with a Tesla?

These "generator recharging the electric car proves the technology will never ever succeed" memes are getting tiresome. Agreed. Fill up in an ICE you have a limited rage. Run out of gas you're stuck. Fill up an EV you have limited rage, run out of electric you're stuck. There is no difference. I always have 5 gallons of fuel in the back of the truck so I'll never be "stuck".

RE: Easy Start By Micro Air

The Micro-Air EasyStart works differently than most "hard start" add-on, which is why it actually works !Just curious what the difference is between the Micro-Air EasyStart and the SoftStart by SoftStartRV. Not interested in brand bashing by any means, but interested. It would seem they both do the same thing. From my understanding, Micro-Air is the OG of soft starts, someone from the company went on their own and started SoftStart. There is a quality difference between the two, spend a little more on the original.

RE: Gray Tank Smell (Seriously annoying)

Make doubly sure the traps under your sinks have enough water in them to form a seal that will not allow sewer gases back into the coach. I had that problem in the past where after traveling for a bit of time or after having just dumped the gray tank waste which might siphon out the trap, I would get a foul odor from the gray water tank. Nowadays, I try to remember to screw down tightly the sink drain plug which prevents the loss of liquid in the trap. X2 I always run water into the traps for this reason.

RE: Honda EU3200i

Now, if you have a new travel trailer, fifth wheel, or camper that doesn't already have a generator, and no internal bay to mount one, then (IMO) the new Honda 3200i portable would be a good choice. IMO, with 3200 watts (max) power, and rooftop AC, you're ALWAYS going to be chasing power/load management especially if you are running the AC, . . . . even more so at higher altitudes/temperatures. IMO, an EU2200is and a MicroAir EasyStart kit for your rooftop AC essentially gets you the same result - in a smaller, lighter package - for roughly half the cost. You could conceivably go even cheaper with a Chinese generator, but the EU2200is's larger engine gives you some starting surge headroom. X2 This works great for my situation. Sure, you have to manage power use when running the air, but I have the option of adding another 2200 if I feel I need more power and at a lower cost.

RE: Looking for 5 star RV Park

Newer resort I've been boating in this area since '93 and remember when this area was all hill with shacks scattered about, someone had a great vision and lots of $$, but they did a top notch job here.
