RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

I'm looking forward to when I can get vaccinated but I agree with jdc1. This will be hard to get real immunity. I want to see more therapeutics but we don't hear much about them now that there's a vaccine. Ideally, I'd like to see the virus mutate numerous times because that weakens the strains and makes them much more survivable.

RE: Wonder if truck makers will start making 10001 # 1/2 tons.

They have to make these EV make noise. People don't pay attention now! Everyone walking down the street has their head down staring at their cell phone or their ear buds in. In 15 years, who knows what the high tech thing will be occupying everyone's attention. It's a recipe for disaster for pedestrians and bicyclists to have vehicles that are basically silent. Shouldnt be too dificult :B https://youtu.be/4NgSZ8sjDgU That sound made me start singing "Meet George Jetson... His Boy Elroy...Daughter Judy...Jane his wife." LOL

RE: Autopay anyway!

Ever since someone came up with the idea to do auto-renewal it has fried my behind. Now before I sign up for anything, I read whether there is an automatic auto-renewal. If there is, I do one of two things. If I can, I'll call them and say I don't have a credit card and ask if I can send them a check. If I can't do that, I'll go buy a pre-paid Visa or MC card and put just enough money on the card to cover the cost of what I'm purchasing. That way when auto-renewal time comes, they get nothing. If I can't do either of those things, I don't need or want what they're selling. It's a pain in the neck but what happened to you happened to me with another service and it was months before I got the problem resolved. Never again!

RE: Syracuse NY April Camping

Don't bother. Within a short period of time - almost certainly before April - the supply of COVID vaccines will be greater than the demand. When that happens you'll be able to get your vaccine where you live. If you don't believe me, bookmark this thread and come back and look for it later. -Speak I hope you're right Speak because where I live, we're only getting 300 doses per week for a county of 135,000. I have to wait until I'm eligible which won't be for a while (59 and no co-morbidity issues) but I want to get this behind me as fast as I can. At the current rate, it will 5 years from now.

RE: Off Roading with the 2021 Bronco

I think I missed the part where they went over some rocks. I watch several youtube videos of desert rescues and see some amazing rock climbing in vehicles. Straight up and over, getting out and using other rocks to make a ramp to climb over boulders etc. Although the Bronco looks like a very nice vehicle, it's nowhere near the vehicles that people spend a lot of money on to off road for real!

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

At least without the free coupons you will not have to wait in line at the door with 30 geezers before the store opens, who are there to get a free $0.15 flashlight that doesn't work lol. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA So True!!!!!

RE: Dollar General grocery?

When we spent last winter near Titusville Florida, we had a Dollar General next door to the RV Park we were at. It was great! Good sized grocery and freezer sections and the prices were good. We even bought a small Air Fryer there for $35 that was fine for the two of us.

RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

If power companies can't make and provide power at competitive prices people will just put up their own solar systems and make their own.JMHO If I did that here in the Northeast, I would be without power 8 months of the year. Today and part of yesterday was the first time I've seen the sun in weeks!

RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

The problem with looking into the future and whether a vehicles power plant will be electric or something else by 2035, is we are all assuming things will be like we anticipate them being. Has anyone's life gone exactly as you imagined it would? There's always twists, turns and abandoned hopes and dreams that get replaced by other hopes and dreams. Government administrations come and go, new technology happens at an unbelievable pace. All electric vehicles by 2035 might be abandoned for some new thing that's right around the corner. There could be another pandemic 100X worse than this one and half the worlds population could be wiped out for all we know. A lot can happen to society and planet Earth before 2035 gets here.

RE: Raising our 5er

I was 2" nose high and I was able to raise my king pin up a bit since it had another set of holes to utilize. It lowered my nose an inch so I'm still 1" nose high but over a 38 foot length it's not going to cause me to lose sleep.

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

There are 20% off specific item coupons and 30% off any $10 item but it's been a while since I've seen the 20% off "Any one item" and a long time since I've seen the 25% off Super Coupon. Also, you can't use a coupon of any kind on most of the better upscale tools. At least not the ones I've looked at. I was recently looking at their air pressure paint tank for $99.99 to convert to a pressure pot for resin casting but no coupon meant no sale.

RE: F series recalls

Notice how they're saying with the wrong payload stickers, "Loading to those values may exceed the gross vehicle weight rating or gross axle weight rating, which may result in suspension overload and increased stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash." but they aren't saying anything could break which says to me these trucks and their components can handle a lot more weight than what they say but it's just not safe because of increased stopping distances which could cause a crash. Interesting.

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

With Sears headed toward extinction there aren't a lot of places to buy tools, especially automotive stuff. Their quality is headed upmarket with new brands like Icon and Bauer. I just bought a $69 Bauer trim router and it's almost identical to the $99 Makita at HD. If you the math, the ad coupons are always about 20% off, and the general 20% off coupon excluded compressors, welders, Bauer, and a laundry list of other stuff to the point it was only good on a bag of zip ties. Honestly I like where they are going...you can still buy the cheap junk I-only-need-it-one-time tools, but you can get some quality stuff too, so you pay for what you need. Their upscale tools look like the name brand tools but it's what's inside that makes them cheaper and inferior. I follow Project Farm on youtube. He does a lot of testing of all kinds of products to find out which is the best bang for the buck. Harbor Freight stuff rarely does well. Even the "good" stuff they sell.

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

In my opinion, no longer having the 20% off coupon is a deal breaker for me unless I need something that's very inexpensive to begin with. Most of what Harbor Freight sells isn't worth the price they charge. If I have to pay full price for junk, I'll pay more elsewhere and buy better quality which is what I do most of the time anyway. Even their top of the line tools that they've begun selling are inferior. I watch a lot of videos comparing Harbor Freight Tools to name brand tools and they just don't hold up. I only buy things like zip ties or tools I'll only use a few times or the occasional caster, hand tool...things like that so just buying elsewhere is what I'll do now that the coupons aren't available.

RE: Wonder if truck makers will start making 10001 # 1/2 tons.

How long does it take to recharge an electric car with one of the fast chargers? If traveling across the Country, is recharging as fast as filling a fuel tank or is there significant down time to recharge? I also wonder what the cost of electricity will be when the States stop getting all the tax dollars they are now collecting from a gallon of gas or diesel. Will taxes imposed on electricity to make up that difference in revenue make our home electricity bill become so high that many won't be able to afford it? Many low income families get their electricity shut off frequently now. I can't imagine what it will be like for them in 2035. What will the cost of gas, diesel, propane and home heating oil be because of less demand? What about the Amish community? They don't use electricity and they won't be able to afford petroleum products. I'm not against making our planet a safer and healthier place but are proponents of ending fossil fuel use thinking everything through? Have we done everything we can to reduce emissions in vehicles so gas and diesel can still be used?

RE: Sliding Storage tray in the front Pass through

Good video. Thank you. That looks awesome. Does it lock out when pulled out all the way on either side or just when it's inside at the center position?

RE: CG in Brooksville Fl

Take a look at this one very nice park Bell Parc RV Resort That park looks very nice but pricey for being inland and not all that far South considering electric isn't included and high speed internet is extra. I don't want to hijack this thread but we stayed on the East Coast last winter, 15 minutes from the Ocean near Titusville at a very nice resort and paid $900/month including electric and very good high speed wifi throughout the park.

RE: FloJet Macerator Capabilities -Unique (embarassing) Question

I have a Flojet Macerator and it will not accommodate anything the size of a tennis ball. You are correct that it is about 3" in diameter and tapers down to an opening 1.25"-1.5" (hard to measure exactly) before getting to the blades. If what you need to go through it is very firm, it needs to be narrower than the opening.
