RE: Combined home computers reach exaflop levels

I am going to look into this. I have been hearing about folding at home for years... I swear it was well over 10 years ago that I first heard about it. If my computer can help out with the present situation while I'm sleeping, it is worth a shot.

RE: Stewards Volunteers are no longer allowed

Okay, I am not sure what this is all about, but I like to keep public lands open to, well, the public! Is this about allowing motorized vehicles on federal lands?

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

The highways are open. Any statements to the contrary here are incorrect. Lots of folks are making their way home at this very moment. Did I miss something? I haven't seen anybody talking about highways being closed. Yes, you did miss something. A foolish person has been making jokes (aka: starting rumors) that you will go to jail if they catch you on the road. The thread title is basically asking if the highways are open. Which to me is a legitimate question these days, every day some new restriction is announced. Yes, they are open, but... Rest stops may be closed or reduced services, such as pumps only open. Pennsylvania did that for a short while, close all rest stops, but quickly realized those truckers delivering food need a place to nap so they reopened some rest stops. Keep that in mind when you have to travel, your "normal" rest stops / fuel stops may be closed.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Wow, what a slanted and carefully worded article! "Among the 22 truck owners who were part of the firm’s analysis, 2/3 were positive or at least neutral when it comes to all-electric pickups." That basically can mean one person liked the "idea" of an electric pickup truck, and the others were just "meh". Tesla can do better than that with "studies" and articles supporting it.

RE: Portable air conditioners?

.... told her to turn it on in the morning before it got too hot. .... This! Best thing is to turn on the A/C first thing in the morning if you know it is going to be a hot day. That way, you at least have a cool camper in the evening while using more energy. If you wait to turn on the A/C until you "have to", you will have a warm, uncomfortable camper in the evening and STILL be using more energy! Our small camper is easy to cool, we've never had an issue.

RE: We were shocked to learn our newly purchased TT

It's just lovely parked next door to one of those when it fires up at 3am. LOL...yeah some are very noisy.... like the one in my '97 5er. Sound like a mini jet roar when she fires up. I was told mine was gas only. The tank was housed under the sink. I was under the sink and saw this switch next to the electric hook up. Flipped it on and 20 min later hot water.....no more jet blast water heater. I'm sure some folks was glad I found it. Okay, now I have to go out and see if my FR Surveyor has an electric option after owing it for 17 years... lol! I'm 98% sure it is gas only. As to usage... when it is just wife and myself camping, I usually shut off the gas heater except for a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours at night. In middle of the day, to wash hands or dishes, there is still usually plenty of "warm" water without turning on the gas. My water heater is pretty well insulated, but still will turn on for a few minutes every hour or so when not being used. Years ago in a campground our neighbor's camper's gas water heater would turn on multiple times an hour even when no one was using hot water. I am not sure what was up with that. It would be nice to have the electric option, but the gas heater has been fine for us.

RE: Hitch set up

Read the owner's manual for your hitch - you can find it online if the dealer did not give you one. You may very well be able to adjust your hitch yourself just fine. Read the manual, ask questions on these forums. Do you have a friend or two who has worked with hitches before? At my local garage, a couple of the mechanics own campers, and will do a certain amount of work on them including adjusting hitches. Their biggest problem is they don't have the big garage to be able to put a camper into. When and if you do bring your camper back to the dealer to adjust the hitch, still read the hitches owner's manual first so you will have some idea what they are talking about and what they will do.

RE: How to improve 2017 Ford 350 head light output? See Update.

I would like to thank those who take the time to properly adjust their new high intensity headlights... LED, halogen, etc. I thought it was just me the last few years, being partially blinded by oncoming cars at night. Then in talking to other people turns out I'm not the only one.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

From that article, interesting way to run zoning laws... companies can have permission to start building "at their own risk" without proper permits? "The BBC reports Tesla had not yet been granted permission to build the factory, but had been given permission to make site preparations at its own risk."

RE: It has been 6 yrs since we sold our TT--back looking again!

We just saw the Vintage Cruisers at the Big E camper show yesterday! Really liked the style of them. Well, the wife actually Loved them! We didn't buy, but they look great.

RE: Towing through New York City

I-95 is frequently full of traffic until east of New Haven. I have several friends that live in Fairfield County. It can take an hour to go 10 miles at anytime of day. Actually... I95 traffic is bad going east/north basically until you hit mid-Maine... lol! Really, past New Haven it can be randomly bumper to bumper all through the rest of Connecticut. I have towed our camper a few times through NYC, although we always take the Tappanzee whenever we can. It isn't the end of the world going I95 through NYC. Biggest issue is traffic, just be ready for realllllyyyy slooowww going. Then, the once every 31 years that you hit no traffic, your truck and camper will be blown apart by the bumps / frost heaves / pot holes if you go over 35mph (heavy traffic helps prevent this! lol!). So... yea... avoid I95....

RE: My Folding Porch

Sometimes on obscured P/B pics you can right click on them, then select 'view image' and it will open the picture. Doesnt always work, need to use your back button to return to original thread. That worked, thanks! And... very cool patio!

RE: Used 2011 F350 6.7. Do I need to purchase warranty?

I am just curious... about how much is a warranty for a 9 year old vehicle with 100,000 miles on it? And for how long will the warranty last?

RE: My Folding Porch

For some reason the pictures in the original post are very blurry for me... don't know if it is my laptop or something else. Can they be reposted somehow?

RE: Disney world in July

Yes, Fort Wilderness is worth it. Having said that, the "free meal plan" which is sometimes included with staying in other on-site Disney hotels can save a lot of money. But... The Fort is an awesome campground just by itself! Too bad you only have 4 days there, you will find it is just not enough time. "Hoop-de-do-Review" at Fort Wilderness is worth seeing. There is so much to do there, really consider if you want to wait in line for a ride for 2 or more hours. Take advantage of whatever they have for the "fast pass" system these days, use that for the most popular rides. Otherwise, look around! There are so many attractions, shows, rides, etc there might be something right behind you that has a short line and is very much worth seeing. Keep your eyes and ears open for specials, passes, etc. Sometimes employees walk around giving out "stay late" passes or "get in early" passes... they can really be fun to use. Does someone in your group have a special occasion? anniversary, birthday, etc? Get a button from the town hall to wear for that occasion. Employees will see that and it is fun getting recognized, and sometimes (many times!) they will do something special for the person or group - from an extra dessert or treat to maybe giving you a special access pass of some sort. It has been almost 10 years since we've been, so I am sure some things have changed. Look around on forums for ideas and tips, and when you are at Disney... Ask! Whatever the question is, many times they will go out of their way to help.

RE: Stationary camper roof repair advice...

If the camper is definitely going to be under a permanent roof / shed, why not just throw a tarp over it for now?
