RE: Missing bed rail nuts

And maybe add a dab of Lock-Tite.

RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

RV'ing subject? I thought it was a tour bus. Are we just supposed to gawk and look at the wreckage? Why post about a disaster where people were killed? What does a person learn about this wreck? Don't ride in a tour bus? I belong to several motorcycle forums, one of which won't post links to motorcycle accidents, unless there is a definite point to the post.

RE: Newer RVs....ugh

Most campers made are delamninating before they reach the dealer. The junk single axle garbage trailer dominating the newbies are ready to self destruct this winter. Interesting. Where did you glean this amazing information? Especially like to hear about the "most"Well, you know what they say: "73% of statistics are made up on the spot".

RE: Cleaning out a DIY septic tank

"You basically have nothing more than a fancy "outhouse" or "privy", dig hole put outhouse over then rinse and repeat once that hole is full" Yeah, that was my thought too. No septic tank about this, just a outhouse gettin' fancy.

RE: Tires, again!

You're certainly welcome to your opinion, but it's a fact, not opinion, that tires heavier than needed can contribute to a very harsh ride.

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

There are a zillion gasoline car fires a day. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48751995692_ccbcfc427b_z.jpgYeah, but there's a kazillion gasoline cars out there. More gas cars means more fires. With no gas, EV cars shouldn't ever catch fire. Or will they?

RE: Vent fans and a/c at the same time

Seems like a simple enough experiment that takes about 10 minutes to try...Yeah, but on such a subjective "experiment" it's pretty much a given that the experimenter will get the results he desires to get.

RE: Towing small utility trailer behind 5ver

I towed a "swivelwheel" type trailer for a few years and never checked with the DMV where I was going. I figured if I got stopped, I would be inconvenienced for a while, but no serious harm was going to be done. And backing up was never an issue. FWIW I was never stopped, and I traveled through, and stopped in, several states that don't allow double towing. YMMV.

RE: Vent fans and a/c at the same time

I've always figured that the air going out has to be replaced by air coming from somewhere, and that somewhere is going to be from outside. If it's hot outside it's pulling hot air into the camper. Seems kind of a self-defeating cycle.

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

So I'm unsure what you're asking. The automatic transmission on these years' trucks is a known issue. The only way to solve that is to pull the transmission and have it beefed up to handle the load/weight. I have a 2001 Dodge Cummins dually with the six speed transmission. I'm pulling a 15,000 lb. toyhauler which it does very well. It's pretty much at its max since I have to keep a close eye on the EGT. But I pulled a 12,000 lb. 5th wheel before this one and it pulled that thing with no issues at all. The truck can do it, it just depends on if you want to spend the money to enable it to continue.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

I did, and got water in my eyes from the rain. Now what? I read that last night and looked up, seen the Moon, almost full. Ran up to the garage and broke out my Lunar Panels. $5 you both also had to walk 10 miles to school, in the snow, up hills to and from school. Or, you still do. And usually with no shoes. Even when we had them they would be two different sizes.And hand-me-downs.

RE: Towing small utility trailer behind 5ver

^^^^^^^^^This, the only semi-reliable information you can get is from the DMV in the particular state you plan to visit. And I consider that only "semi-reliable" after many interactions with various DMV's.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

I love it when a bunch of hetero white men state there is no racism. That everyone has the same opportunity to do and achieve the same things and it's just because others are too lazy or not interested in doing so. And that any time someone suggests inclusion, they are simply making up a problem. Keep the status quo because if these other folks start camping WE won't have a campsite when WE want it. I would love more inclusion in camping and RVing. Some of the best things I've done have been improved because of new ideas brought by different people. And this is one area that is so ready for new ideas and new people.Any respect I had for you has gone out the window with remarks like these. Seems you may be as racist as the other people you are talking about. Why is it you want to control what others like to do? I could care less who gets into camping, boating or anything else. Color seems to only matter to the folks who scream racist all the time.Did you actually read the post? Control? Where? How? Inclusion isn't an imperative, it's an invitation. Nobody is forcing you to do anything other than be open minded. This isn't affirmative action.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Only thing holding back electric vehicles, including trucks and RVs, is a significant step up in battery technology for more range. Power is a non issue. And electric motors are far more efficient than internal combustion engines. Agree. That's why the holy grail of range for EV truck is 500 miles to go in parity with the full tank range of Chevy Silverado. And hopefully the difference in higher sticker price fo the EV truck will make up for the savings on gas and maintenance. But in F150 price tag of $45K and Tesla's proposed price of $49K, Tesla might come out ahead in total cost of ownership over the economic life of each truck.Is that proposed $49,000 cost for the Tesla pickup about the same as the proposed $35,000 cost for the Tesla 3? I believe there were some issues with that price for the Tesla 3.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

"Where we spend winter in AZ it’s 99.9% old white farts with wrinkled hide." Heck, that could be offputting for people of any color. :)

RE: Nothing Stays secure!

Try using tie downs with carabiners instead of hooks. Maybe try strapping them down solidly using spacers, perhaps wood blocks, between the axles/frames and the floor. Thus you don't give the tires a chance to move any.
