RE: Midsize car for towing

as far as i am concerned the ratings are generally ****. reason being. the chevy cavalier had 2 motors, 2 trannys and a 20 hp difference, one was rated 1k one was not rated to tow anything. do you think the lower one had any trouble towing? it didn't and the cars were known well, same EVERYTHING short of the tranny and engine, and you could get the 4 speed in the lower engine which i had.

RE: Current crop of SUV'S

I don't understand this hatred for unibody, i have NEVER seen one broken in half. i literally towed 1500 pounds with a unibody Chevy cavalier for years and it did fine and now i tow 2000+ plus with a mitsubishi outlander i also towed over 40,000 miles with a 93 subaru outback and that had 0 issues as well. the 98 cav destroyed the 93 subaru and the 07 outlander destroyed the 98 cav, im really not sure what you people want that makes a suv so crappy, and all my pulls were mountains, maybe not outwest mountains but a bigger tranny cooler and i would have no concerns. no one is expecting 10k towing out of a small suv, even though i thin the grand cherokee is around 9k. dully to pull a popup comes to mind.

RE: Inverter use.

Last winter boondocking and having only a 400 watt inverter that attaches to battery posts with clamps. A couple times wanting to watch tv and not run yamaha gen, I just ran an extension cord from inverter in through a window and plugged the tv in. That worked fine. Would it work to make up an extension cord with male ends at both ends and just plug the one end into an outside plug thus powering up the trailer. Would this impact the trailers converter in any way? Da wife wanting to run her sewing machine I also plugged it into this 400 watt inverter. It would work but it buzzed or whined. instead of making a cord to kill yourself with, why not just plug the trailer cord into the inverter directly and shut off loads, that would overload the inverter?

RE: Well... I see a new trend

Half or most of them are E beggars. You can hardly get through a video without them prompting you to support them on Patrion, or buy their merchandise. Most of them have links to products they are pushing in their headliner that they get a kick back from. Seems like there are getting to be too many of them trying to get viewers to pay for them to rv. Many are young people. You got to wonder what their retirement will look like in 30 years, when they have not saved a nickel, and have never had a real job. Maybe I should have retired at 25, and went rving. Please, could everyone send me 20 bucks so I can rv at no expense to myself. Thank you in advance. have you ever made a decent video? do you know how long that takes? people that are supporting themselves through youtube are spending 50+ hours making video's if they have no other income. constantly creating content take a lot of work, if you don't want to support them then fine, but don't ***** if your watching for free. NOTHING in this world is free. and the successful ones are making decent money

RE: The mini splits are coming,

I am putting one into a small addition I just put on my home, 224 sq. ft. but it is not hooked up yet. 9000 btu unit with a 13 seer. We shall see how well it does. thats a pretty crappy unit to be honest, 13 seer at 9k? must have been a cheap unit

RE: portable generator placement

you should buy a carbon monoxide detector regardless. Carbon monoxide has a funny way of finding its way into homes.
