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

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51586428978_44f5601362_c.jpg And hoping it will give access to Cybertrucks especially those pulling an RV that it will serve as pull through charging station. It's difficult to speculate what those covered items are on the back of the rigs but Giga Nevada is pretty busy with those deliveries.

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

Part of the statement from Tesla was that they would endeavor to hire "people of color", and try to maintain diversity in the job place. Tesla just sent us letters to stockholders to vote against initiatives to have the company report on diversity-inclusion and human rights. Toeing and consistent to his Apartheid Elon character.

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

Also, those Texans probably don't realize how much their government forked out to get Tesla to build there. :) Hint: "Travis County offered the electric car giant a package of tax incentives worth about $1,200 a year for each of the five thousand jobs it promises to create at its new factory." Spoiler, that's $6,000,000. And "Del Valle ISD’s incentives were matched by Travis County’s, which will give Tesla additional property tax rebates worth $14 million over ten year." It's a windfall for Apartheid Elon and well be at home in Texas. He will be able to pay his workers poverty wages and won't be held accountable for injuries and lives lost. Ask Koch Brothers and that electric company that had their plants and grid froze last year. Maybe I'll buy Tesla stocks again, order the semis (son-in-law wants to have his own trucking company) and another Cybertruck.

Where can I get that Tesla belt buckle? When my son was working with Tesla, I always have those paraphernalia that my friends will tease me than I'm bedecked in them although I don't own a Tesla and only drive one when my daughter lend me hers..

RE: Biden to restore 3 national monuments cut by Trump

While I agree with what you say, think about the avowed reasons for removing the protections. We see every day record heat, record fires, record storms. For half a century, every scientist in the world that is not paid by the fossil fuel industry has been telling us this will happen. But we must pump every drop of oil out of ground, we can't save any natural place. And I bet there is a lot of overlap between the group that cheered when the area lost it's protection, and the group that was throwing a fit about statues moved to places where they could only be seen by people that want to see them. THE'RE DISTROYING HISTORY! @JRscooby - thanks for returning back sanity into this discussions. Though you seem to have opened another can of worms on climate change to these science-denying ivermectin taking troglodytes. Seriously, this has nothing to do with RVinng. These are one of the good places to camp. And they don't want the National Parks designation because others may also come to visit. What are you drinking? This is the very reason and avowed aim of national parks and national monument system -- optimal enjoyment of all. And yes, yes, we want permanent national park designation so that these won't get to be a football for new and constant changes in administration and so that their wealthy campaign contributors can stop looking at them with their moist eyes as another place to exploit and stufff their pockets.

There goes the neighborhood. It may be too late for me to rescue this. But please, these are federal lands not subject to statehood jurisdictions. Gawd you southerners (transplanted and native) are so dumb.;):B:)

@vermilye - Wow, just wow1 Thanks for sharing (and the link). That alone will support the move and give it a national park designation for permanent preservation..

Biden to restore 3 national monuments cut by Trump

In case this is again seen as political, that's an actual copy-and-passte headline. In fact, these should be declared national parks once and for all to prevent these to be used as political football and get full national park management and funding. https://www.yahoo.com/news/biden-restore-3-national-monuments-043531077.html

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

We all know that nobody on this forum has a Tesla semi on order and this entire thread is just about satisfying our personal interests in new technology. Guilty your honor. Got skins in the game being Tesla stockholder and having reserved Cybertruck. As to reservation, easy pissy, I had a back up of also getting reservation for an F150 Lightning. As stockholder, yes, Elon is a loudmouth and ego-centric sob. I lightened up my Tesla holdings with the last letter to stockholders appointing James Murdoch to the board. I just don't have respect for daddy handed management position and wealth. And then urging us to vote against diverrsity and inclusion that seems to support the strong rumor in corporate circle to a moniker calling him Apartheid Elon (he is or was a South African). To the production delays, yes, Elon tend to over promise and speak out-of-turn or from a bong. Apparently, this has not caused diminished luster from his fan boiz except consternation from us stockholders when Tesla stocks suffer which is now in prolonged corretion territory causing portfolios of some of not so few to be swimming in red ink. But overall, Elon is really a genius and Tesla will lead the EV revolution.

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

I'm no expert either. But in an exchange among techies, I gathered that full self driving cannot be achieved unless; 1. All other cars are similarly equipped (and ideally, communicating with each other); 2. National (or even global) infrastructure is build up so that road network has clear markers that an FSD can "read'". Analogy given, if I recall correctly, are modern planes that now has capability to take off, fly to destinations and land without a pilot. It is able to do it because of multiple redundant system that constantly communicate with markers for minute maneuvers and course correction. Relevant to us RVers is that an FSD equipped vehicle will have to assume control to our campsite and over our unbeaten paths. I see Elon's Starlink guiding my Cybertruck on these tasks. NTSB is telling Tesla to drop the "full" in the FSD for it being a mis-representation of its capabilities and a cause for confusion.

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

A family friend runs his family trucking business, a few years back he changed the fleet over to Chinese (company and manufactured) tires after hearing so many good things about them. He says they are far superior to the traditional brands in all aspects, and FAR less money. Wonder who you can sue for damages in case failure of the tire due to faulty manufacturing. Or would the manufacture in China even respond?

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

Sold all my Tesla stocks. Looks like Elon gone rogue or simply don't care. Tesla may get dropped on the ESGV (environment, social, governanc) or good guys ETF-mutual funds. Tesla's latest letter to stockholders is to vote for his new director James Murdoch (of Fox infamy), vote against reporting on human rights, diversity and inclusion and employee arbitration. And true FSD, as we thought it would be, is stilll a pipe dream -- calling our Cybertruck to fetch us in our campsite or go to one campsite to the next with us napping at the back seat. We will always have to be on the steering wheel.

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

I have a lot more confidence in US or Japanese branded tires even if marked Made in China as I'm pretty sure it was made under our standards and strict supervision. "Branded tires". The (mainland) Chinese are very capable of manufacturing tires to the buyers specifications! Michelin has mfg facilities in China along with other brands who put their BRAND NAME on the tires. However - even YOU can be a distributor of YOUR brand of tires mfg in China to YOUR specs. Simplified: YOU place the minimum order for "Yosemite" Tires, have them shipped to the USA, line up distributors and you're good to go. Also,cut a deal with trailer manufactures to equip their product with Yosemite tires - which meet the desired load range for the trailer. (Think "Bean Counters"!) Soooo maybe lots of complaints and tire failures! Next batch gets a new brand name. If folks are happy with their "Yosemites", they get good reviews (like in this thread). When a company has THEIR name on the tire - their expectations (and specs) are higher....Ex: Michelin. Unfortunately - sometimes even USA mfg tires can be losers! Ex: USA mfg Goodyear Marathons from a few years ago. The Airstream forums have (negative) threads that never stopped - but would be deleted or closed on other forums. If you bought a new trlr a few years ago, it had USA mfg GY Marathons (with lots of unhappy folks on RV Net also). My Marathons developed bubbles & tread seperation in the first year, with a mimimal load range (D) for a 10K (unloaded) trlr. Best of luck -and trouble free miles- with your choice of shoes! :W . One line could be "Idgit Camels" China can manufacturer whatever you want. Just bring a sample and give them the downpayment for minimum order. Quality. Don't bet on it. But if a US company control and supervises the manufacturing with veery specific quality materials and QA, it can be comparable to US made. That's how I guide myself in buying anything around. US brand, wherever it's manufactured.

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

@Reisender - good luck on whatever decision you make and the road you take. Yup, we thought of ferries doing that Alaska route and definitely, small RV will be an advantage. It is too for US West Coast national parks, lol,

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

@Reisender - I'm still getting email notifications but I have to drag myself to respond. Seems everyone and his brother are into building charging stations -- some offering commercial center free charging installations. The Alaska set up is one exciting development. Encouraged too that Biden administration is into it in their insfrasture plans. Pull throughs and charging cycle-access for Cybertruck is still an outstanding issue. Is the wifey still canceling her CT order with the smaller trailer purchase? Interesting new cool models there too. Except my own DW won't ever give up her sofa feature in an RV. We may be looking at truck camper though with the CT doubt about the sofa feature unless it's classified heavy, can carry the Lance 1172 with a modification of super fat tires at the back in place of dually (interesting discussion of dually mods at the Tesla-Cybertruck forum too).

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

Right, that's why NHTSA has opened an investigation, and the FTC may follow suit over Tesla's marketing of driver assistance, autopilot or whatever it's supposed to be. There's obviously an issue besides the loose nut behind the wheel. I drive a Toyota with less sophisticated features like lane keeping assistance and collision avoidance. Hasn't aimed me at another vehicle yet. I bet you don't sit in the back seat when driving like some idiots in Teslas ? video Sandy Munro shares his thoughts on Tesla being investigated by NHTSA If Tesla is guilty of anything it is under estimating the stupidity of many Americans. However, I am really looking forward to Version 10 of FSD that is supposed to be released next month. Simple solution. Tesla should make all buyers read vehicle manual and learn how to safely operate AP feature and sign the statement saying so, before seling them the car. And IQ test, pleaaaaase!

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

If EV's are going to be a success, all charging stations will need to be available to all vehicles, just like gas stations.Here is a map. Zoom in a bit to your area. https://www.plugshare.com/ Looks like there is or will soon be an electric path to Alaska. I had no idea this was moving so fast. Oh yeah, am putting Alaska national parks back into my bucket list.

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

@Reisender - Wellcome back! Am myself is parked at Cybertruck/Tesla forums. Comes here only with the notifications on interesting topics. Nothing changed my opinion that this forum is over moderated. One even got zapped relating my bad experience with Camping World San Bernardino and Valencia in CA. And the Ellla infamous, IM me your Elite Member number -- and then nothing happens. So Tesla is stil not into pull-through charging stations to benefit us trailer-pullers? Thanks for the update.

RE: Sad state of national parks and forests - II

Why did you delete the post about me the OP implying I didn't know anything about the subject of government budget? Lost your manhood suddenly? Why are you blaming fla_gypsy for that? They aren't a moderator and don't have the ability to delete posts.... Have you read the unedited post to know what's been said before you opened your trap?
