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

Tesla's stock price is!:EAnd that has exactly what to do with the semi's availability? Huh, so you seriously don't know? Let me edumacate you, in Finance and Production Management 101. In Tesla's case (I know, my son used to work for Elon). 1. Most, if not all of Tesla's responsible employees are stockholders. 2. When stock prices are up, they report for work earlier, sometimes stay on the job 24/7, work harder and complete their goals, building their megs and overshooting their production targets. 3. When stock prices is down, they dilly-dally driving to work, takes their coffee in their lounge longer, chit chat around the water cooler more often and longer -- thus delaying the completion of their megas and their gigas -- thus delaying production, in this case, the semis. There you go. You can thank me later for this 3 units each credit on these subjects.:B

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

This is quite different from a Nickel Iron battery, as it uses air (oxygen) as the cathode. It is great to see the dramatic leaps we are seeing in batteries and energy storage technology. The other emerging technology that is more directly relevant to EVs and RVs are Solid State Lithium Metal Batteries . These will have a higher energy density, charge faster and last even longer than lithium-ion batteries. Indeed! Every battery tech's head is into this and it won't be surprising to have a breakthrough developments along this area. Interesting times.

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

I wonder how similar these batteries are to the Iron-Nickel ones from early last century? Asking for a friend, are you someone who is nostalgic to the good 'ol days of horse buggy and want the world to go back to those days?:B

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

I am interested in this thread, but the constant "almost here, almost here, almost here, almost here" just gets so tiresome. Why can't the fan boys just accept that it will be late, and it will get here at some point, and give it a rest? Instead we get daily reports about it's "almost here". I mean it's coming up on 4 years and it's still not here, but it's "almost here". Meaning, like a fly to the cow's pie?;)I can't believe it, you're equating the Tesla semi to a cowpie? Tsk, tsk. :) Tesla's stock price is!:E

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

Yup, if it's too heavy for electric cars, then it will also be too heavy for RVs. There is a frenzy out there to come up with more densely packed battery. Weight and size is always a major consideration.

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

Walmart had many Endurance 225's in the Birmingham, AL warehouse a few days ago, $145 per and $12 for balancing. I just checked on them, my local store doesn't stock them, but it only takes a day to get them. They use FedEx Ground, the warehouse is only 100 miles away. But, they don't have any high pressure valve stems in stock and they have been out for over two months. I had to get mine from local NAPA stores last week. Short bolt in valve stems are hard to come by around here. It took two stores and 70 miles to get five new bolt in stems. Etrailer couldn't supply them either, they didn't have the .453 grommets. May not be relevant to you with the distance. My experience with American Tire in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and Discount Tire in Reno were topnotch. The latter even gave me a lifetime (to the tires, lol) wheel balancing for my Goodyear 4 off road tires.

There seems to be a Troll among us. Salesman for the competition?

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

"GY has suspended production of the Endurance and they are out of stock nearly everywhere." That's a shame for those who want a quality US Made tire. When GY moves production of Endurance tires to China....will they no longer be a *quality* tire? :h..:S . If it's a US owned and a reputable brand, they make sure China manufacturers adhere to their US quality standards. Explains why there are so many American expats in China (having a Chinese extra wife too, if their wife don't join them there).

RE: Yosemite questions

"Love your trip report, but the OP asked about the other Y park - Yosemite. " OOPS! this is what happens when you sit down at the computer first thing in the morning "without" your coffee. LMAO. Glad you enjoyed it none the less. :o Close enough, both starts with Y.;) We laugh about this all the time in our family. It's just like plugging in a USB cable: There's a 50% chance you'll get it right, but a 100% chance you'll get it wrong the first time. And that's from a family of CA natives whose kids moved to WY to go to school. We still can't get it right. Tell me about it! My son is a techie. But we make sure we plug and re-started that thingy before we call.:E

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

Are you buying or have a reservation?:hOh, good gawd no. Don't really need a semi, and all the Tesla's are out of my price range. So what's causing all that hang up about Tesla's delay in producing the semis?:@:hIt's not the delays per se, it's all the hype about the semi is ready to roll out the door, but it isn't and they won't admit it. Just keep saying almost ready, nearly in production, etc. I just get tired of hearing the same ole, same ole I just get tired of hearing the same ole, same ole I just get tired of hearing the same ole, same ole. Back off the hype and ramp up the production. If it ain't ready, just say so. Seems easier to just tune out!:S:h:@:?:B

RE: Yosemite questions

I will be there 3rd week in October... Tempting the fate at the edge of closure of Tioga Pass.:B And additional info, Tioga Pass is a 9,941 (or thereabouts) feet elevation above sea level -- and a very long climb..

RE: Yosemite questions

East entry late this season and getting your campsite in the area may give you better chances of getting booking for a campground. But get a reservation in advance anyways.. We stopped our annual family camping and pilgrimage in Yosemite as it's almost impossible nowadays to get a booking.

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

So far haven't seen the full electric semi, must be just around the corner? I'm just commenting on the perpetually upcoming semi, since that is what this thread is about.Need a new factory first. All other factories are producing previously perpetually upcoming vehicles at max capacity 7 days a week. Go to Texas and see the new factory under construction.Yes, yes I know all that, but all you hear is how soon it's going to be here, when, in fact, it's a couple years away, when this thread first started. I just get tired of no one being realistic. If it's going to be two years, say so, or say "I don't know". An amazing phrase that should be used more often, especially when anybody is predicting new model releases. Are you buying or have a reservation?:h

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

Customer Service said it's to put more production capacity into sudden All Terrain demand, but the Endurance will eventually come back...maybe 2022. What's their alternate product equivalent? I must be one of those who snapped their off-road/all terrain tires for my truck. Sold my Michelin, which surprisingly got multiple calls and bought one the same day.

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

Where would Tesla production be without the words "nearly", "almost", "upcoming", "predicted", "awaiting", and the infamous "just around the corner". :) So you left the corner and did not see when Tesla passed by with a full electric vehicle that everyone, must have included you, won't come up with one?
