RE: Found my replacement engine!

A stock 1000 Allison won't last with those hp and torques numbers. Put a straight drive behind with a good clutch and have fun. YeeeeeHaaaaaaaaaaaw. Bowtie in the back window optional. Why is that when a stock DM HP numbers are higher than that gas engine and torque numbers are WAY higher?

RE: Diesel Brothers

So the Diesel Brothers are doing something illegal and Elon is not. Are you insane? But I thought it was about pollution and saving the planet? Guess not. :R As bad as a guy that owns a 25 YO diesel complaining about the amount of pollution a person that owns a deleted 07 diesel puts out. If it's about pollution you need to take that old dinosaur to the grave yard and crush it. We now know it's not about the pollution. Thanks for the reminder. :R

Better have a fuel truck follow you around. Don't ask me how I know. :R

RE: Truck overheating towing on long steep grades.

230F is not overheating the trans. That said; Scott's ideas are good and it also would be nice to get a little more info on the ambient temp and RPM ect.

RE: Diesel Brothers

Because Time, you are saying how bad the DB's are for deleting a few diesel trucks but you give your hero Tusk a pass when he pollutes on a level of 100's of times the magnitude of the DB's just with on one flight of his jet. Hypocrite much?

RE: Diesel Brothers

How Ironic that RV'ers of all people are complaining about the fuel consumption of others. There are a lot more efficient environmentally friendly ways to travel than by RV. It would be very easy to draw a map and showing RV'ers criss crossing the country in 40 diesel pushers and big Diesel pick up trucks wasting lots of fuel. Would we feel better if Elon traveled commercially in a 747? How about all the charter flights in full sized planes to the Dominican republic and Mexico to all inclusive resorts. I don't think they are very environmentally friendly. Or do you have to have a Gulf Stream to be a serious violator? Until we all decide to rides skate boards and carry our camping gear in back packs I don't think people in glass houses should throw stones. You see, I'm not a hypocrite like some on here or like some that proselytize how important electric cars are and then fly around in a jet that uses more fuel in a day then I use in years of driving my RV. I have no problem with people that own RV's. I have no problem with people that own jets. I have a BIG problem if you're a hypocrite and try to proselytize about how bad I am by driving a 42 mpg fossil fuel car when I should buy one of your electric cars for 100 grand+. I have a problem when I own a 1,200 sq/ft house and you proselytize how bad I am because I don't have a solar system on it when you own 5 to 10 mansions and your wine cooler cellar uses more juice in one month than I use in a year. Ya, i have a problem with hypocrisy.

RE: Diesel Brothers

OK and I believe there are better ways to protest the EPA regulations than starting a business to defeat the OEM emission control systems. This has nothing to do with SpaceX or Elon Musk. Two wrongs do not make a right. Protest both if you have the drive. Time why don't you ever criticize Tusk? Here is one day (today) of using his Gulfstream 650 as his private Uber. https://i.imgur.com/TUc6kGul.jpg Do you know how much a Gulfstream burns in fuel / hour? I do. It's almost 2 TONS of fuel an hour. Yes, I said tons! On this one 9.5 hour flight he used around 38,000 lbs of fuel! Or rounding about 19 tons of fuel! Tons! Unlike my truck, his toy jet has no pollution control systems at all. NONE. I would have to drive my truck for years to burn what this world saver did in one day! About time the fan boi's start seeing and acknowledging things like this.

RE: Ford, GM, FCA Agree to Shut Down US Plants

Not Tesla. Musk is being a danger to the public. Sheriff orders Tusk to stop making cars. Tusk says make me. I can see big law suits coming down pipe after Tusk is rolling "small pox's" cars down the line. And where is Tusk? He cut out on his private jet and got out of Dodge. Nice hu? This will be self leveling after a few workers get CV19 at the beginning of the line and this will spread like wild fire. Pretty hard to run a car factory when all your workers are sick. :R

RE: We were shocked to learn our newly purchased TT

Why? Why do you want a electric water heater so badly? Just curious. I get why you would want a gas heater if it was only electric because then you really can't boondock too easy. For 40 years my parents and my trailers have had only gas HWH's. About 5 years ago I bought my first trailer with a gas/electric water heater. So in 5 years I don't think I have turned it on electric. Maybe once to test it out? Like I said, just curious. Because the propane dealer is too far away from where our mostly stationary trailer will be. We also only have 20lb tanks. Got ya. Makes sense. Thanks for the explanation.

RE: Diesel Brothers

I can't say for sure Ben because as you know we don't do "real" diesel testing in Kalifornia. I can say this from experience. Diesels tend to have high NOX levels because of their efficiency. Almost any engine that has a turbo on it runs high exhaust temp and that makes for a bad NOX report. The BB I had back in the day was tuned very sharp. There was very little HC's getting out of the exhaust even without a cat. The NOX was another story; being very high. As you can see from the report Ben. Your Burb is in very good shape.

RE: Scratches on gel-coat surface

If the scuff marks are as light as you say just get some "polishing compound" and a micro fiber cloth and rub them out. Then use a good wax or sealant. I can't recommend a rookie use an electric polisher. There is just too much to do it correctly.

RE: New Mexico State Parks Suspend Overnight Camping

So they’re closing it to overnight camping which has less people than during the day which they are still having the park open? Yep, someone isn’t the brightest! Government studies have shown that most of the seniors that stay in this park at night grew up in the 60's and 70's. That means they are taught to share joints and bongs and red Solo cups with beer in them at night. Don't get me started about the "swapping" that goes on at night in this park! :B :B Here is the government keeping us safe in this park. They are doing a great job! It's the new age government thinking to keep us safe! :B :B

RE: Diesel Brothers

The funner part is that tuned direct injected gas engines put out way more PM and CO2 than deleted diesels, but no body cares because you cannot see it. Someone gets it. 99.whatever number you want % think that if you can't see it; it must be clean. As you know ShinerBock, nothing could be further from the truth. Don't get me started on the "coal and nuke" cars. But just because the coal plant is not in their back yard means those cars are clean. :R :R

RE: New Mexico State Parks Suspend Overnight Camping

Some individuals check their lugnuts, and if find a loose one tighten it. But as a society, we may see the nuts are loose, but take no action, then witch because our ride is rough when the wheel falls off. Of course, we can't say anything about not allowing anybody to look at the lugnuts, so they knew the rough ride was coming... Or in this case, you can ONLY look at the lug nuts at night because some government official says the nuts can only get lose at night and NEVER get loose in the daytime. Ya, that makes sense! :R :R :R

RE: New Mexico State Parks Suspend Overnight Camping

Wait what??? It says in the article that: All 35 parks will remain open for day use. So does that mean the virus only spreads at night? :R Interesting!

RE: Private Seller - Financing

I went with my credit union. Interest rate was super high as a personal loan but good as an RV. Most if not all banks or CU's will not loan on an RV over 10 years old. Good luck!

RE: GM 400-mile battery

LMAO the transition has been going on for over 60 years and it's still less that 2%. Let that sink in! Almost 90% is nuke and hydrocarbon. Let that sink in. Why hasn't Tusk put up more than a few token solar panels on Giga 1? Is that in transition too? :B Where are all of the "solar chargers" Tusk promised? Remember those? Oh, are they are transition too? :R

RE: 5 Week trip in planning stages

I have camped with a TT for over 40 years and have never made reservations anywhere except on the west coast line. That is the only place I have been left out in the cold with no campground to stay at. I made reservations going back through Nv, Ks Ut, CO, Mo ect and it was a nighmare. If something happens you're really stuck then. My opinion you will be fine. If you really need to do this then make the reservation in the morning of. Good luck and safe travels.
