RE: ? L E D taillights

well stated. by the way I went back through this thread and noticed that way2roll's entire input into it was the whining at me. :) bumpy If you don't get it, you don't get it. smh.Well, to be fair, he's right, you didn't contribute anything to the thread, just criticizing him.

RE: ? L E D taillights

Smarten up. A Sure Power flasher cost me extra. Not only will it keep flashing into infinite resistance it will aurvive a dead short and even reversed polarity. There is no reason to screw around with resistors Plug and play except with newer nightmare H.A.L. controlled vehicles.As I stated earlier: "They have specific flashers or you can add in a resister, or they may come with resisters built-in." Guess I didn't spell it out clearly enough: Specific flashers that will work with LED's.

RE: ? L E D taillights

The turn signals bulbs are usually the only problem since they flash really quickly with a normal flasher. They have specific flashers or you can add in a resister, or they may come with resisters built-in. Adding the resistor completely defeats the primary reason for switching to LED taillights, reduction in power.Hey, I didn't make up the laws of physics. That's just the way it works, really doesn't matter that you don't like it.

RE: Rallys

"I don't know what to say or think about that!" That's funny, you wrote a very long ranting post about it, but you don't know what to say about that. I'd hate to see what you'd write if you had an opinion.

RE: Electric black tank dump valve. Worth it?

Been having trouble with cable and valve leaking. Took belly off once to deal with cable. Now valve leaking. Thinking if I have to take belly off again perhaps I should go electric. Are they trouble free?Consider a manual valve: you pull the handle, either a cable or a rod moves the valve, done. An electric valve: you push a button, the button closes a circuit which may go through a circuit breaker or fuse, the motor is supplied electricity which then moves a rod or cable which moves the valve, done. My thought usually is KISS. No way an electric valve is going to be more trouble free than a manual valve. Too many interconnecting parts add to the chances of a failure.

RE: Electric black tank dump valve. Worth it?

Just a thought: I do believe the bolt spacing is equal on those valves, so do you have space to rotate the valve 90°? Or secure the cable directly above the valve so the cable will have a straight pull.

RE: Bearings

"just my opinion most bearing problems are the installers fault." Truer words have never been spoken. Whether the installers are at the factory, or working in their back yard. Seems like a lot of times when people say they are having bearing problems, it's right after a trip to the shop. Most, not all, just most.

RE: 4 digit pin nos and security

A 4-number PIN gives you 10,000 different combinations. Pretty unlikely to guess the correct combination in 10 tries.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

Ignore 90% of what you hear and you may actually be able to filter out a little truth.Which 90%? The parts you don't like? Where's truth for you?Hey man, you do what you feel you need to do. Just remember the media thrives on FUD. I'm done.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

They should have a chart, based on time, how many people are still in denial! What I am reading in this thread is pretty remarkable.That some people actually are thinking through this problem rather than be driven by FUD? It is pretty remarkable, and also remarkable that so many people have let themselves be driven to panic by the same FUD. It's pretty remarkable that so many people think that people who refuse to panic and overreact are in denial. Go figure. Because I haven't gone out and bought 14 cases of toilet paper, don't wear a mask, gloves, and a hazmat suit out in public, I'm in denial. FUD driven people seem to rule.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

IOW, if people had ignored the hype from the media, stayed at home if they were feeling sick, stayed at home unless they really needed to go out, and stayed away from crowds, we wouldn't be having the hysteria fanned by the media.How would anyone know to do that unless they listened to the media?Exactly how does one differentiate hype from real news. Ignore 90% of what you hear and you may actually be able to filter out a little truth.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

I believe that nearly everyone will be fine. That's agreed to by almost all the people involved. The numbers usually thrown around that I've seen is over 90%, and around 80% of the people who show symptoms will be mild cases. IOW, if people had ignored the hype from the media, stayed at home if they were feeling sick, stayed at home unless they really needed to go out, and stayed away from crowds, we wouldn't be having the hysteria fanned by the media. Most people will be able to do their jobs, most people will be able to get things to the grocery stores, shops and such. Closing sporting events, slowing mass crowd convergences is a good thing. No one, and I me NO ONE knows positively what will happen over the coming months, but acting like the depression is around the corner and acting like it's the end of civilization is simply asinine. Stay home, chill out, and self-medicate, with the drug of choice. Mine is beer, just not any of that lite stuff that calls itself beer. Dark ales, all the way.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

The media is surely sensationalizing this pandemic. But it is the government (both parties) that are advising shelter at home policies. I'm not a fan of the media, and feel they definitely have an agenda. But there is more to todays issues than that.What is it you mean by shelter at home? If you mean people showing symptoms should stay home; If you mean everyone should maintain a safe distance/contact, I think everyone would agree with those things. If you mean all businesses should shut down and remain closed for weeks / months and everyone remain inside - that's an example of the media sowing sensationalism, chaos and hysteria. Which is precisely why everyone is buying months worth of toilet paper. And just like someone said a day or two ago; when its all over and done instead of admitting to their hysteria peddling, the Media is going to say - wow, we dodged a bullet. Not sure what they are doing in your area, but in Colorado the (admittedly Liberal) government has said "essential services" should work. Grocery stores. Banks. Medical services and the like. They have shut down dine in restaurants, gyms, tattoo parlors, and the like. This isn't the media making the decisions.The media isn't directly making the decisions, but they sure are putting a lot of pressure on the people-in-charge to act. So the people-in-charge act, sometimes totally without any data or reason to do what they did. But the media can't accuse them of not acting. That is what is driving a lot of politicians: fear of the media reporting them as indecisive.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

"Clickbait" is the new headlines. Facts have little to do with it.They are reporting what experts are saying. How is that not facts? You 'fake news' guys just create more fear and confusion..as if we're supposed to listen to you and not the media.I'm sure what you meant to say was - they find an expert to support their narrative then put him on TV.Yes, very nicely phrased.

You 'fake news' guys just create more fear and confusion..as if we're supposed to listen to you and not the media.If you have read very much you'd know that the "facts" being reported by "experts" are all over the map. No one agrees what will happen, when it will happen, and who it will happen to. You want an opinion, just search around and you'll find an "expert" who will supply the "facts" you wish to believe. It's not "fake news" per se, it's incomplete or partial news, to support a particular view being espoused. Just like anytime the politicians say anything: "Believe very little".

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

"And here all this time I thought the media just reported what is happening." You're living in a dream world, that type of reporting died with Walter Cronkite. Now they do whatever they need to do to create news if there isn't any worth reporting. Why do you think there are so many conflicting reports happening? With the social media, and online news, it's all about the "clicks". "Clickbait" is the new headlines. Facts have little to do with it.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

you do realize that with no precautions taken that the projection is 10 million deaths in the US alone with in about 5-6 months. social distancing, isolations and other measures can drop that number down to 100000. SteveYou do realize that what you've just written is total speculation and FUD. With no actual basis in reality. You can find someone to support any theory that is floated, but "It Ain't Necessarily So". Just calm down, and don't spread FUD, like that. If you're sick, stay home, self-medicate. If you're not sick, stay home and self-medicate. The only difference is which drug you're using to medicate yourself. :)

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

China seems to be on the downhill side of this outbreak. They say the incidence of new cases as well as the incidence of deaths in China have both declined for the past month. China's population is 1.435 Billion. Total deaths attributed to this virus, as of now, stands at 3,255. If my math is correct, that's a mortality rate of 0.00022% of the population in the nation that was the origin and epicenter of the disease. (Mortality rates are supposed to be calculated versus total population, but many news sources are figuring death number versus number diagnosed with the disease, a misleading statistic if it's called "mortality rate.") Have you looked at the draconian measures China took to reach this point? Are we willing to submit to them here? China’s aggressive measures have slowed the coronavirus. They may not work in other countriesUh, a lot of those measures are already done: closing concerts, arenas, large gatherings of people, closing restaurants and shops, curfews in some areas. And talk of limiting travel except for necessary people. Those are all pretty draconian steps to take.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

"Italy took a laid back approach and their mess is real. Hospitals are overwhelmed and people are dying." Well, I'm not so sure that there was much Italy could do to limit their mess. Lots of old people living cheek-by-jowl with each other. You are looking at a culture medium waiting for a virus.
