RE: Visible Cell Plans & Service

Be aware, however, that it will slow your data when the network is congested. We've been on it for a couple of years and we have never seen that throttling. I did not see a mention of that in the new plan description either. However they do throttle to 5 mb/sec at all times. Usually not an issue. Just going by what the rep told me. I'm sure it doesn't apply to everyone in every situation. If the plan were perfect, nobody would use Verizon anymore.

RE: Diesel to Gas Power Observation

I will start. Great combination. Hemi is good. Dodge is good. All is good. I agree. The Hemi's a darn good engine. Those saying diesel is 20-30% more . . . AT LEAST 30% more around here. 30% better fuel economy . . . maybe. HOWEVER, have they factored in the $9,595 additional cost for the diesel on the Ram 2500? Conveniently, no. Will they get that amount back at resale time? Possibly, but only time will tell.

RE: F450 Lariat Ultimate package?

Don't have a clue about the package and ordering, but I'm assuming you do realize that the 450 pickup and the 450/550 chassis class our not remotely close to being similar? Another thought; $50 a month? Hard to believe that the deciding factor...more to the story I'm guessing. I agree. If I were dropping 100K+ on a truck, then $50 more per month would be relatively insignificant.

RE: wintering in south BC

in 2008 we tried wintering in the middle of BCs vancouver island, in April.(parksville) it was too cold. other hearty people camp there all winter. we found we had to fill the front where the brake pedals are with bags of towels to keep the cold out. Our RV has 2 slide outs which we doubt are insulated when out. What do the other wintering RVs know that we dont? Wrong RV? we have a nice 2006 29R itasca sunova. furnace is too noisy to sleep thru! thanks all That's why God created Florida :C

RE: Verizon Grandfathered Unlimited Plan

Have Verizon, but no idea what plan I have. Crazy question, but how do you tell? Call Verizon

RE: Things I've been doing around Quartzite, AZ.

Interesting, but for safety's sake, in the future have someone other than the driver be your cameraperson.

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

My daughter ordered a new Bronco coming up two years ago and we still haven't got a production date. Maybe if you order a new Super Duty today you'll have your 350k miles on the '12 by the time the new one shows up.:) There's no vehicle on the road worth waiting 2 years for. I'd have picked something else way before now.

RE: time to replace brakes?

Change 'em out. As a previous respondent mentioned, peace of mind is everything. And, if you view it as a "thankless job", remember that there are people that do this professionally. That's the route I'd go.

RE: ARE THERE ANY SNOWBIRDS ANYMORE?

That's funny - I find Florida drivers to be among the worst I've seen in North America. You are absolutely right. And where did they come from?? Yup, you guessed it. Only about 35% of Floridians are native Floridians. About 1.6 million 'Floridians' were born in New York (that's about 8% of Florida's total population) . . . helps explain a large part of the problem :C If they're from NYC they may got their first DL in the sunshine state. That's entirely possible . . . a bit scary, but possible.

RE: ARE THERE ANY SNOWBIRDS ANYMORE?

We have them here --- plenty of 'em!! Would it be OK to send some of them your way? :C OP is from Oklahoma I see. OK is probably not ok in the winter! PS, we're heading for Quartzsite shortly. Frankly I don't care which way we send em' --- usually not too bad once you get used to the congestion on our roads, but I only wish they'd leave their driving habits back where they spend the rest of the year.

RE: Rivian R1S

And although the base price of a new R1S is advertised to be $72,500, the least expensive one I could find on a nationwide search was right at $115,000. Just a little cray-cray if you ask me!

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

The i3 is a great concept, but also probably the best argument ever as to why alcohol consumption should never be allowed in design studios. They gave a group of engineers green light to design the best electric car they could, and they did. The I3 is not a luxury sedan, a highway cruiser or a race car. It's a daily derived with a plan to overcome the biggest problem of EVs: Dependency on the charger. From really skinny tires so you have more foot space to carbon fiber panels made in 4 minutes (that even today no other company can replicate), It is an incredible design, but also a perfect proof that EVs are only good for certain applications, not all applications. To the subject of this thread, I don't see EV trucks taking over the market with the current technology or with the technology that is coming. I agree with much of what you say, but I think very few people have uttered the words . . . "look at that i3 . . . what a beautiful car!" Face it, it's butt ugly, and didn't have to be. (Case in point: 2023 Prius vs. the current Prius)

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

So help me out here . . . . are we talking about EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks or climate change? Also, if I post my replies in a primary color, does that add credibility to my statements? Life can be so confusing.

RE: Then what?

Less than 5% of the vehicles currently on the roads are hybrids, and personally I see hybrids as the next logical step in this chain of events. SO, if less than 5% of us are using a proven technology that has been around for a couple decades now, what makes everyone think that all of a sudden the American populous is going to embrace EV or hydrogen technology? I think it's a looooong road, even after (and IF) our infrastructure gets to the point of treating EV's as the norm.

RE: CB radios - Do you use one?

"....If you are in a caravan, you can use apps that let you set up a multi-party conference call group...." Just like everybody in the caravan being on the same CB channel, eh? :h

RE: Montana LLC to save on sales tax

Just do it the honest way. If you can afford an RV you can afford the sales tax on it.
