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

I’m thinking it’ll take 10 years for BEV sales to overtake ICE sales. Certainly in North America anyway. 2018 Tesla EV outsold all these cars What do you think hapens when Tesla trucks gets here? https://www.forbes.com/sites/jeanbaptiste/2018/10/27/tesla-just-outsold-mercedes-benz-audi-acura-infinity-in-america-about-to-crush-bmw-lexus-in-q4/

RE: Redneck Engineering or.........

Fwiw I had 70 something Jimmy Blazer 4x4 which had front springs like that stock from the factory. Not sure the reason for that but with both solid axles it rode perfectly fine.

RE: bigfoot and northern lite details on their construction

I sugest IF you need to replace any wood,plywood, use Exterior grade ply,even if you get leaks in it wont rot. Wish all manufacturers used this for all woodwork.

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

Fires fires Didya know that Every three minutes gasoline or diesel powered cars catch fire someplace in the US Why arent any of those carmakers being sued ? Do tell https://youtu.be/t84J5L6SZ68 Your number sounded way high... Luckily Google helped me out :) while the number is somewhat misleading it's mostly accurate and surprised me. Vehicular fire data One of the differences, When a Tesla catches on fire, it's very difficult to put the fire out. Fire dept are generally not equipped to deal with a battery fire. We had a battery pack being transported in the detroit area. They had to drive a fire truck from the airport approximately 30 miles to the fire to put it out. Bateries will improve and become less or totaly fire resistant I have no doubt Tesla model 3 has improved bat pack and none has caught fire yet https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-model-3-battery-pack-fire-resistance-pictures/

If Tesla was responsible for those fires why would WM drop the lawsuit so quick Make you wonder doesnt it https://electrek.co/2019/08/23/tesla-walmart-energize-solar-systems-avoid-removing-them/

I havent seen any WM burned down from those Solar panels but with over hundred ICE car crashes a day Im guessing plenty of people got cooked rather nasty.

RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

It's upon blocks 2177 road miles from here. I only learned digital imagery after I departed. I have been seeing medical specialists for a few years and had to stop commuting to Las Penas once transportation became insanely expensive. The polished Budd Wheels (6) and Micheline are removed and stored inside now. And Pele has been in charge of soaping the connoly leather and oiling the teak inside. The rig is covered with a trucker's tarp for the four 50 watts Kyocera solar panels right in front. Jesus removes the tarp and 2" thick styrofoam blocks and washes everything down twice a year. The imron over hot galvanizing hassle paid off. I am going in for eye surgery next week then next month neurosurgery so I can walk again. Yeah, I have been wheelchair-bound. Degenerative spinal disease. WAIT! There's MORE! Then comes several hours of surgery on my left hand and wrist. A tendon was hyper-extended beneath my wrist the first surgery and knuckle movement was restricted. Scripps Medical Center. IMSS cannot touch this level of technology. Not even in Mexico City. The spinal surgeon is being imported from Johns Hopkins, then the hand surgeon from Chicago. So my medical hangout has become a second home. But I've acquired literally a ton of gear that needs to be shipped south. I've also lost 88 pounds, had my heart synchronicity fixed (timing between atrial and ventricular beating), and will get my shoulders fixed. When I got my heart fixed my systolic blood pressure dropped from 180 to 126 and I do not need any medication now. Hope you get fit and healthy amigo Sorry if I was bit harsh sometime in the past..

RE: Clean Trucks? Electric Truck?

I have a 2002 RAM 2500 hauling my Arctic Fox. The AF is a little small inside but with some mods I think it's getting more comfortable. The problem is, I want to ship it to Europe for some adventures, but it can't be driven anywhere because it's subject to so many issues with emissions over there. I'd be banned from most of Germany, lots of Italy, etc. Now, I think I have 2 options to fix this situation and the likely similar situations coming to the USA eventually. 1) Buy a gasser to replace the 2500 Cummins 2) Convert the Cummins to an electrical, zero emissions vehicle ( Let's not debate that one, I'd rather keep the diesel but I want to be able to stick my TC in the center of Berlin if I feel like it... That's the advantage of a TC.) First, what gasser can possibly replace a Ram 2500 with 24v Cummins turbo diesel? It would be nice to have a 3500 so I didn't have to do all the crazy mods to a 2500 that have.been done to mine. Is it going to completely suck up hills? How about down hills? I use an exhaust brake now. Am I going to have overheating brakes in mountains? Also, what's the lowest emission gasser to be able to replace a Cummins truck? If I do an electric conversion, can I regenerate through the main electric motor by down shifting? It's a manual transmission. Do they sell aftermarket regenerative brakes? That are heavy duty? Id never take any American truck into Europe. Roads in towns are too small. Van maybe Only reputable EV conversion I know of is EV WEST try asking I suspects its very pricey tho. Btw If youre not perfectly healthy why not just fly over and stay in comfy hotel?

RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

China is using m-o-r-e coal than ever before. China doesnt use more coal then ever stop BSing. I’d like to see the facts you based that statement on. The below article and many others all say China is indeed using more coal. They are shifting away from coal produced electricity and producing less domestic coal, but importing more. Clicky clicky. China worlds cleanest coal powerplant https://youtu.be/3dGHLC5YTEA

No way China is using more coal... their use of BEV has increased substantially and continuing to grow. BEV's don't use coal. Almost typed that with a straight face.

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

Walmart to Elon: Stop Lighting Off Our Stores! Well that explains why Giga 1 does not have a Tesla Solar panel system on their roof! Good move Tusk! https://i.imgur.com/QE8sOJnl.png Well that's not good. I want you people that own Tesla cars to think about something before you read the below. The Tesla Solar systems were build in a stick and brick factory and not in some tent. Look how that turned out. Nice hu? P24: Another problem was that the inverter fusebox contained brass/metal bolts, rather than the types of fuses required by both the manufacturer's installation manual & the National Electrical Code-an industry-wide set of safety standards regarding electric wiring & installation. Tesla also failed to "ground" its systems properly, violating basic practices for the installation and operation of electrical systems in a way that increased the risk of electrical fire. ……… Now just think about you and your family driving around in that "tent built tough" Tesla. I can't wait for the Semi to roll off of the line. It's going to be one hot product! I wonder if Walmart is going to pull their deposits for the Semi now after seeing how cool (hot?) and exactingly built their solar systems are built! :B I'll have to pull up my list again as see how it's coming. The next item on my list was Tesla getting sued into the stone age. It's now just started to become reality. You mark my words; this is just the beginning. BTW, Trent Ruark just quit Tesla a while back. Who is Trent Ruark? He would be one of the head lawyers that represented Tesla in the wave of lawsuits that are going to mow over Tesla soon. Trade carefully my RV friends. You forgot to mention those Walmart solar was instaled by Solar city Long BEFORE Tesla bought them out Case dismised Btw Seven fires seems bit suspicious yes,almost as if some Arsonist tried to make Tesla take the blame.. Tesla hating Big Oil perhaps..

RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

And Russia and China BOTH weaseled out by setting THEIR OWN timeline for compliance. The USA refused and withdrew. Action, and not B.S. Neither country has done squat with or without joining the accord. And toss in Brazil and equatorial Africa for ignorance in defending their role in rainforest depletion. "Oh because your country is the wealthiest it has to do more. Much much more" is the height of hypocrisy. But you have to get into the minutes of the meetings to see this. Yet the US has reduced emissions than any other country. But people who ***** about the USA refusal are the first to pull out their pie charts and chortle over the gross reduction in fossil fuel reliance for the production of electricity. Take Russia and their openness with a giant catastrophe with nuclear weapons radiation leak -- a class III event. China is using m-o-r-e coal than ever before. Clearcutting has increased on the equator. And I see no meaningful effort at reforestation. One for you and two for me. Two for you and seven for me doesn't cut it. China doesnt use more coal then ever stop BSing They are largest producer of EV cars and solar and will ban all ICE cars manufacturers after 2025 Also China takes reforestation very seriously and does something about It https://youtu.be/7Nur35fnjDA

RE: Camping on my lot against zoning law

Greetings I’m new to the forum and enjoying it alot, however I can’t find an answer anywhere. What will happen to me when cops say I can’t live here. It’s on my lot in a small town of 10k. There’s No house, just a garage with electric. Ive lived in this camper in plain view for 5 months now. I park in the driveway, fill the tank with my neighbors hose and empty the septic in my drain with no complaints. it’s great so far, just not zoned for camper living. Will I get a fine, ordinance violation, or just a warning? How long would I have to leave? I’m so worried I’ve buried my power line and sealed my windows. Why not build a house? Or convert the garage into a house,!?
