RE: 400 mile electric RV

China announced they are building three thousand new coal generating plants and will begin to reduce the total number starting in 2030. The newspaper in Wu VICTORY RED FLAG is openly sold in Mexico and is an official Chinese CCP organ. I know the person who read it to me verbatim. Do you know China is facing a critical power shortage in Manchuria? It is so serious the Chinese government is trying to divert attention from it and turn the focus on Taiwan. Hundreds of thousands of workers are idled and some large cities are experiencing blackouts. The native lignite coal is of such low BTU that boilers are operating at 30% capacity. There are no large rivers to feed a nuclear plant. Did you know that Taiwan is republic of China? Always was always will be,just like HK .Google it. US military posturing and CIA intereference wont change anything. Rest of the world is watching including Chinas friend Russia. Whatever problems China has Im sure theyll fix it. Worry about your own financialy broke country.

RE: 400 mile electric RV

... Understand that almost any modern new ICE automobile is very nearly an actual zero pollution vehicle with only some occasional minor exceptions (like transiting up-hill on-ramps), and there’s no solid evidence whatsoever that BEV’s achieve a lower net footprint…Thus (regarding a multitude of current issues) we must acknowledge our captivity in this now ‘Post-Truth’ era…JMHO 3 tons No offence but thats the most idiotic load of nonsense ever. Lock yourself in garage w ICE engine runnin, Ill do the same w EV,will see whos more poluting.

https://i.insider.com/586eaa51f10a9a6d008b6e5a?width=500&format=jpeg&auto=webp height=500 width=500 Green As Shanghai Coal? I was in Beijing for a few days in 2016. I can attest that the photograph above is NOT an exaggeration. Times are a changing Chinas war on polution https://youtu.be/iSfNvMR-Yww Coal plants are being shut down,solar wind and hydro is in see CGTN news. Well since much of China might still be considered third world, the transition to an intermittent wind-solar power supply should make for an easier societal adaptation than what’s sure to be the American version - Most cloistered American’s really have no mental reference point as to authentic third world hardships or what ‘going green’ will make manifest, or how it’ll likely transform their kids future - but on the other hand it’s always ‘good intentions’ and popular consensus (a Pavlovian response) that drive these lofty policy matters (whether conflicts, climate, the grid, ad nauseam…) so why bother with independent evaluations when we have virtuous Representatives ($$) capable of steamrolling whatever policy on demand?? 3 tons I always wondered how come comunist China is so sucesful when India next door with same population and primitive third world conditions, (see Bald and Bankrupt chanel for example) and democratic system is total poophole in comparison. It all depends on the leadership,chinese are elected on meritocracy,serving the comunity,I guess thats why its called comunism. Short version How china leaders are chosen https://youtu.be/TgpQxVCekgw

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

The Cybertruck is right out of 1984, it looks like John DeLorean designed it after doing a few too many lines.The Back to the Future movie series needs to continue with CT Pls dont give Treelon more crazy ideas Lol https://electrek.co/2021/02/12/elon-musk-serious-making-tesla-roadster-hover-rocket-technology/

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

Love the advertising: "Local US Warehouse" that builds my confidence. "No poisonous lead/harmful sulfuric acid" Let's see, lead acid batteries are extremely easy to recycle, whereas lithium iron phosphate is the opposite. There is no free lunch. Enjoy, Perry Pls stop the fake news. Lithium can be recycled just as well maybe even easier. No acid in them! Also Lithium batts will OUTLAST lead acid many times over. And have many advantages namely less weight and can be discharged completely without degradation.

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

Just to be fair England is experiencing the highest inflation rate in the last 10 years. Canada inflation rate is rampant. Neither country has had an election in the last few years. . Where do you get such skewed info from? In 2020, the average inflation rate in Canada was approximately 0.72 percent compared to the previous years./quote Google Btw Canada Liberal gov sent me 100$ out of the blue just before election,not sure why,probably a bribe LOL

Im investing in crypto :-) You should watch this advice then https://youtu.be/HaJpYjO136o Imo crypto will get banned by the Fed eventualy, bc its basicaly like counterfit money used to avoid payin taxes. Btw China did ban BTC and other crypto already, do they know something we dont?

RE: 400 mile electric RV

The problem is essential two fold: a) As with the ‘current health malady’ that’s continually being sliced and diced on the Hill and in the news, we’ll likely never learn the truth about ‘green EV’s’ and their claimed net carbon reduction assumptions, or whether or not a ‘real carbon crisis’ even exist (e.g. now deemed, socially tabooed ‘wrong-think’)… b) The uber politicalization of ‘the truth’ (the adulteration of empirical science via outcome based scientism), because ‘common folks’ (well intentioned, but distracted-unengaged taxpayers) lack the need to be apprised of any authentic science. Kinda brings to mind that famous old axiom, “The truth will set you free”, but when it comes to EV’s and so-called ‘Green energy’ (et al), who are WE to demand objective science?? 3 tons Fwiw I used to work up north Alberta where it used to get minus 30 or colder every winter in the past. Last time I was there it got above freezing around xmas time. Not complaing tho,dont care for deep freeze at all. All of Arctic is getting much warmer from what people living there say. Also Problem is with all those extreme temperatures comes more severe weather and floods as we have seen lately all over. Heres an idea ,build sponge cities https://youtu.be/jursRm7mnQk Anyhow Im geting EV mainly bc its cheaper to drive and dont need as much maintanance as ICE. Btw Tesla bateries will last milion miles maybe more. By the time it needs replacement they will be cheaper and longer lasting too. And batts can be recycled,reused.win win

RE: 400 mile electric RV

The USA went from a top petroleum exporting country to importing crude in one year. Refinery output and demand remain stable. But prices are absurd which makes fracking attractive... And study after study claims the continental USA has enough easily recovered natural gas to supply twenty-centuries worth, even counting growth. I simply do not understand the controversy of coal or fuel-oil fired power generation. We have a 1.8 GIGAwatt oil fired combination generating and seawater distilling plant close by. But natural gas is not available. The electric car industry needs consumer comprehensible fact comparisons like how many hours of operation will a vehicle battery supply in 30F weather at night in stop and go rush hour, as well as daylight open flat highway operation? Upgrading the nation's electrical capacity is a trillion dollar venture. I've a feeling that the last thing the government wishes is to let the public know how these upgrades are going to be funded. It is common for a 4 bdrm all electric house to consume 4,000 kWh monthly. Then add 2 cars. Compliance will be achieved by making traditional energy sources absurdly expensive. Tesla in Canadian winter - 34° C Enjoy https://youtu.be/lL9zveDz8H0 Btw we get electric mostly from hydro solar and wind

RE: Camping in sub freezing weather

Fwiw Ive been down to minus 20 with no problems,.. This is another testimony, that all campers/rv’s are not created equal. While you will use considerably more propane, especially if the rv is large (ours is a 39 foot 5th wheel), the are several (some of the best are no longer in production) that can handle -20 F quite well. Uh... when a Canadian poster mentions -20, my guess is they would mean -20C, not -20 F. A small but important difference. Dave Dave, after I made my post, and then saw his location.....I wondered if he was talking about -20 C. Yep....a fairly significant difference! With our first really good 4 season unit, we enjoyed several minus 30 F mornings with no issues, with our newer unit, I’m not certain how well it would handle the -30’s F.... -20’s, we’re good! memtb Haha you make it sound as if minus 20 Celsius is fun ! -20 C is - 4 F btw At those temps water in the river froze one foot thick. :) Id highly recomend diesel heater Espar or its much cheaper Chinese copy. See Foresty forest chanel he uses that one full time living in some arctic conditions. It blows dry hot air so no problem with moisture like propane does. One can also burn kerosene in those things.

Hi, I was sure this was coming--but not as soon as this! https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/electric-adventure-rv-road-trip-180000971.html Not to rain on your parade,but anyone can make cgi pics and claim all kinds of impresive numbers. Remember Nikola ? Where is their truck. How about Atlis? List is long,real Evs are few. Im sure EV motorhomes are coming,but not any time soon. Takes lots of batteries to get that range.

RE: 400 mile electric RV

I do think hybrids are the future for RVs, at least the higher end ones. Electric motors make the same torque at 0RM as they do at full speed, 0RPM is where you really need the the HP of a ICE, not at top end, aside from hill climbing. The other thing is , once you climb the hill and are descending, you can get much of that energy back with an EV instead of wasting it in the brakes or Jake. For around town and in the park Pure EV will be nice , quiet and no fumes, on the highway, I do think you'll still need a diesel Genset, but that can be pretty efficient since it can run at a fixed , most optimum RPM. For example, a Tesla X needs 15kWh to maintain 60MPH for an hour. An RV is probably double that, so generating 10Kwh can extend the range of a 120kWH battery from 4hrs to 6 hrs of driving. You can stop and rapid charge, or boondock way far from a charger and let the genset bring it up slowly. Incorecto , at 0 rpm nothing happens bc motor isnt turning, Try 1 rpm ! :)

RE: Cybertruck RV prototype pictures released

Is cybertruck even a truck? Looks like a unibody hatchback to me. Is Honda Ridgeline a truck? Ranchero, El Camino, Brat, Avalanche? 4 door with 6.5' bed makes it a crew cab imo. Open the gate and you can haul 4x8 stuff easy,plenty for small TC. I want CBRTK mainly bc of that rust resistant Stainless steel body. Living in snow belt salted roads is pita with any other vehicle.
