RE: Two blow outs in one day

I moved all my trailers with 5.2k-6k axles to 16" LT E tires. No more issues and no more hauling around two spares. I finally came to the same conclusion with the 16" LT GR Commercial TA. I was surprised at the blowout but we had just come from boondocking on rough roads. I had a uncountable number of blowouts with ST tires until I finally came to my senses.

RE: Two blow outs in one day

I had our first blowout on our AF with GR Commercial TA, 16in. A PITA but it will only cost us $25 since we had road hazard from Discount Tire. Someone waved at us and shouted something even my wife couldn't understand as they zoomed by. I got out and checked everything including the tires which were cool to the touch and seemed OK. I did have the water fill door hanging open. Stopped 30 miles miles later and check again. Nothing seen. Not a peep from the TPMS. 130 miles later someone else waved at us and shouted. We were almost at the turn in for the RV park. Stopped there, driver side rear shredded. Just a request, if you try to tell someone something: Slow Down and make sure your message is understood. Why bother otherwise? I think the first shout must have been the flapping door.

RE: November travel

Depends on the weather and is impossible to predict. I will say that Florida is getting their first cold front next week with temps in the 70's. Blizzards in November are unlikely tho on the east coast.

RE: Custom RV Vent Fan Project

Nice job. I bought a couple of those 12V weatherproof fans from Amazon for $19 and am going to put them behind the fridge. We have a fantastic fan over the bed and have been using it every night now the weather has cooled down.

RE: Where to get three nights of peaceful RV time?

The Sierra Nevada is called the best camping area in the world, lots and lots of boondocking areas out there.

RE: Worth repairing?

Ditto on the above two posts. If the walls are fiberglass I'd check locally for fiberglass shops, often boat repair shops, after the cause is found and fixed. Why give up an otherwise good RV?

RE: Forks, WA

We stayed there a few days several years ago while circumnavigating the peninsula. I had no idea the place was female famous but my wife sure did and went to the store and bought a lot of junk. The cg was wet, puddles everywhere, mud and just soggy. But that describes that part of the country.

RE: How many folks just want to gripe about EVs?

Those that have home solar to charge an EV. Ah guess what,almost all those rich folks with solar panels on their roofs, well they feed into the grid and not the house. They would have to install massive (and $$$$) battery walls in those houses with a massive ($$$$) inverter to power the house from solar. And they do not.

RE: Early report: One dead in boating mishap Grand Canyon

Roughly 600 people die in boating accidents every year. 599 of them don’t get posted on RV dot net. Why this one? Just because it happened in a National Park and got into a news source I read. Some drunk flipping his boat and killing passengers does not rate notice. I recall seeing something like 90% of boating fatalities occur to drunks. Rather close to the snake bite injuries so I heard an ER nurse claim.

RE: Full-time RVing proof of residence?

`1. Get a mail service in either Florida, South Dakota or Texas. Those are the states with no income tax. 2. Get Drivers License, Voter Registration and Tags in that state. The mailing service will guide you thru the process. 3. All done You will have to travel to that state to complete the initial process.

RE: EV jump start

I recall reading that Tesla's maybe not the current models, had to be flatbedded back to a Tesla shop if the battery was flatlined. They could not be recharged in the field.

RE: Florida Rt. 98

OK once you get past the Eglin AFB area, to down around Panama Beach. West of there heavy traffic makes for slow going. Past there it is a good road indeed once past Perry the road is almost empty 4 lane highway until you get south of Crystal River when the traffic starts building up again.

RE: New smartphone direct-to-Starlink satellite service

Your hopes are CRUSHED, heh. Text only: If you’re hoping for a Starlink-style high-speed data connection, think again. Coverage Above and Beyond will allow for between two and four megabits per cell zone, which is about 15 square miles for current Starlink service. That bandwidth would be divided between all users in that area, so the service will launch with support for SMS, MMS, and select messaging apps. The companies are not ruling out offering general data access in the future, but even having text-based communication in an area where there was zero coverage before could be a boon. Extremetech
