RE: This the season

Not limited to northern states. Here in Louisiana our winters are very mild yet most road construction occurs during the summer. Why? Who knows. Construction could easily be conducted during the winter and there would be more out of state contractors willing to bid on jobs and more workers available. Nice to keep our local contractors busy but it would at least force them to lower their prices. A bridge over the Mississippi River near us has had ongoing construction by our DOT personnel for a few months now. They tear up the surface one day then about a week later they resurface it. Then after a couple weeks paint lines on one side. Then a couple weeks later paint the signs on the other side. Then along comes the parish and digs up the new road surface to lay a new drainage line. Wash, rinse, and repeat. Deja Vu all over again. Meanwhile there is major multi year construction on I-10 at Baton Rouge that will force traffic down to 1 lane on both east and westbound lanes. Just a heads up for anyone traveling through BR this summer.

RE: Feels like I hit the Jackpot

Mouse probably saw a hamster running on a wheel and decided to try it. Had that happen to my sewer air pump at our S&B. Pump quit, pulled out the mangled POS and it ran fine.

RE: Just give me the bad news.

For a 2015 I'd list it on Facebook marketplace and note the problems. It'll sell for more than you can imagine. Someone will buy it and fix the problems and flip it for twice what they paid you. That truck is in very high demand right now. Or go to Edmunds or Carmax and have them give you a quote. Edmunds will connect to you with local dealers who will check it out and adjust the cash offer for the problems. If you disclose the problems you shouldn't have any bad feelings.

RE: Renogy Battery Monitor vs Trimetric UPDATE- Camping Test

I like the Victron BMV-712 also since it has bluetooth and you can adjust it and see everything on your phone or MacBook. Their Smart Shunt is the same thing without the gauge, great value if all you want is a bluetooth unit.

RE: Hwy 5 to little gold and Dawson City

Yes there is free firewood in Canada's campgrounds but bring an axe to split it! We stayed at Riverview in Fairbanks for 2 weeks and drove the truck up past Atigun pass and spent 2 nights in a cabin in Wiseman. Riverview was a nice safe campground. This was in 2019.

RE: La Veta Pass (Colorado) with old and heavy RV?

And La Veta pass has 2 lanes on the climb up on either east or west side so you shouldn't hold up traffic. Just gear down especially going downhill and keep your speed down. I've done it in 26' up to 45' DP weighing at 58,000# with toad. Enjoy your trip!

RE: Japanese Van Import As Dinghy Tow

If it has a neutral position in the transfer case (4x4 system) then it might possibly be towable.

RE: Not the cells that fail it is the battery Management System!

SOK batteries have a removable lid to access the BMS and cells making them replaceable.

RE: Cool New Cat Scale App

Nice, but can you do separate axle weights from the app? Especially if you're dragging a toad?

RE: US might have been wrong about Ethanol

I remember discussing this back in college in the 70's. Basically the discussion was it was wrong to use food products to produce fuel for various reasons. We also in class decided that using waste products to produce methanol was a better idea. Back then the technology wasn't refined to use methanol as a fuel. Now we have technology to produce ethanol from methanol using waste products and have had it for quite a few years. But the lobbies aren't interested in changing.

RE: Colorado Rt. 92 from Sapinero Hotchkiss?

The lower section along the Black Canyon to Hwy 50 is curvy. Be aware that that route is being used as a detour due to the construction on Hwy. 50 halfway between Gunnison and Montrose and there is a 70' restriction. Check out https://www.us50info.com/impacts for more info.
