RE: New Ford 7.3 V8

So would a turbocharged 7.3 (maybe Eco isn’t quite accurate) be a sweet engine or what? Say 650 torques at 2500rpm 450hp at 3900rpm about 400 torques at 1600rpm in road gear on the freeway. Been waiting for this and hoping GM will update their big block offering Continue to enjoy my 1996 7.4L GM big block. Redline is around 3,800 RPM's and this new Ford 7.3L's redline is around 4,975 RPMs Guessing direct injection and direct fire. All great stuff Wishing for GM to match this big block and then might consider a new TV or just build my old 7.4L with whatever new components that comes...GM has the new 6.6

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

I have never heard of such a thing. I would talk to your bank and see what they say. With power of attorney what would keep them from taking everything you have? You can give limited or situational power of attorney, if you were unaware. Wife and I have done it multiple times, buying homes. One of us would not be present at the signing, so we did a 1 time POA before hand.Thanks for the clarification from you and Time To Roll. I never have done that on a transaction.

RE: Remembrance Day

Sad that the day has become little more than a theme to base retail sales on. It is a day of business as usual for most. Across Britain & the Commonwealth it is a day of respect & remembrance. Even if you are not at a service at a cenotaph in your town at eleven minutes past the eleventh hour on the eleventh of November you stop for a few moments to remember when the guns fell silent at that time in 1918 & give thanks & respect to those who gave their all.At least the retail sales bring attention to the day so it's not forgotten, and some offer additional discounts to our military that could really use them. Several families have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Least we never forget past and present. The longest war still goes on.

RE: Anyone purchase the new in line 6 Chevy Diesel?

I wonder if they will put it in a Burb?

RE: Replace or reseal skylight

Is it a true skylight or a clear vent? If a vent skylight they are extremely cheaply built. I took my cheap vent out and replaced with a fantastic fan.

RE: Bummed out

George I know what you are going through, just went through the same thing when a good friend since 1977 passed of esophageal cancer this summer after his third chemo treatment. It's a hard thing not to think about.

RE: Sticker shock

I guess I got a bargain at my local RV shop. $100/hour. I don't think they have shop towels or any other cleaning supplies lol I was waiting for the junk yard dog to come out but in fact it was a pig. No lie. But he was the only shop that would work on my basement air. When I had the workhorse brake recall done by another shop they were $125/hour and very nice shop. No cost to me but I will gladly spend the extra $25 and not be greeted by a pig lolWas the pig the one working on the motorhome? It doesn't matter if the shop is immaculate if the guy doing the work is unknowledgeable of what they are doing.

RE: Full time storage, but far away from home - possible?

Lots of seasonals do exactly what the OP wants to do in the South and in the North.

RE: More campers than parks

The more picky you are about what campground is acceptable the more you limit your choices. Example, I prefer a lakefront site so that would limit my choices. The more flexible you are the more opportunities are available

RE: Bizarre text this morning at 1:48

This story may explain the delayed texts A ton of people received text messages overnight that were originally sent on Valentine’s Day It’s happening to people across all major US carriers.When I went back that would have been the correct time frame for the message. It was just strange waking up at 4 am to use the restroom half asleep and seeing a text on the phone from someone that had passed. Thanks that puts a end to the mystery.

RE: Be careful out there. There are some bad people

The only way I would tour Mexico is the same for the Darien Gap! Mother hovering overhead and a select group of friends armed to the teeth.Uh, how do you feel about Utah, since the couple in question are from Utah? X2. All the talk about Mexico and the reality is the people of the US are just as dangerous.I do not believe that you are correct in your facts. Murder rate per 100k people: Canada 1.68, USA 5.35, Mexico 19.26.

RE: Sticker shock

Don't be all tore up. they want $130.00 just to plug in, and tell me which seat sensor is bad. Not to fix it. Just tell which one is bad. so. it is still bad, and probably won't be fixed. she said the air bag won't work with it on. Truthfully. that ain't a bad thing for me. I sit pretty close to the steering wheel, and it isn't good for a airbag to go off when you sit close to it. Why do I sit so close. I found I have better control while sitting close, as opposed to having my arm stretched out. O'Reilly Auto Parts will let you use their code reader for free.

RE: Sticker shock

The thing that upsets me is that dealers generally add on surcharges for things like shop rags and cleaning materials. I run a small business and my rate includes everything, as it should. Those rates are why I very rarely take my vehicles to a dealer once the warrentee has expired.My independent charges for shop supplies as well.

RE: Elon tease -- Tesla pick will look like military vehicle

https://cdn.motor1.com/images/mgl/1GXZW/s1/tesla-truck-3d.jpg width=600 LOL Why no suicide doors like the Semi? The diesel boys will no longer get to say "the one with the most lug nuts wins". I do like the concept of super singles shown. I wonder if center position driving could catch on. Real deal scheduled to be seen on November 21st. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/teslau-unveil-electric-pickup-cybertruck-171941930.htmlReminds me of the old Ford econline and Chevy Corvair pickups, I remembered Volkswagen had one to back in the early 60's. I could see this design being used as a pickup or a van for deliveries or the trades.

RE: Bizarre text this morning at 1:48

When we travel it's common to get some prior messages. Might be due to different computers serving different locations and not being in sync.I know this is what probably happened, it was just ironic because now it had a different meaning and the duration of time.

Bizarre text this morning at 1:48

I had texted a good friend about getting another Collie (Sawyer) back in February to keep Cooper company since Mikko's passing. In April Cooper was diagnosed with oral cancer and passed May 3rd. I had texted him when I took off to pick up Sawyer then shut the phone off while driving. In June Jeff was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and passed away in August. Last night at 1:48 I received a text from Jeff (( Wow, Good deal I know that Cooper would like the company. Maybe..haha)) It truly has dual meaning today since they have both passed on. All I can figure is it must of been a reply I had received with my phone turned off when I went to pick up Sawyer. Why I just received it I will never know.

RE: Sticker shock

My independent mechanic labor rate is $95 a hour so $150 a hour sounds about right. Had a Mobil RV tech come from Wichita to help put on a new rubber membrane, he's charge was $1500. for 10 hours or $150 a hour.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

2100 for brakes is ridiculous. I always use a independent shop for the last 30 years that has reasonable prices and extremely knowledgeable people. The trouble with a very good mechanic is getting a appointment, usually booked a couple of weeks in advance. Not a issue with me because of multiple trucks. What's even better is a can trust his judgment not to try to up sale me on unnecessary repairs.
