RE: Electric bikes !!

Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra 1000 Pro, 1500W peak output. I've got a few thousand miles on it so far, have yet to find a hill it won't climb. It's good for anything up to blue diamond single track but, the fat tires do get in the way sometimes. It will do 40mph on flat ground. Only one downside, if you're not shifting properly, it will eat the drivetrain.https://i.imgur.com/FPGLzYOl.jpg

RE: Oregon State Parks Fire/open flame ban!

I would advise anyone camping in the woods to do a serious evaluation of just how fast they can roll up and bug out at a moments notice.

RE: Maybe a new low?

Had the same problem. I got some nice 1/2 inch thick maple and put the blocking on the surface with a little foo foo detail and stained to match. Going on two years of fulltiming and still holding strong, I weigh close to 300. https://i.imgur.com/uwReXV0l.jpg

RE: To portable dump tank or not to portable dump tank...

RE: Running Inverter Generator Safely From Pickup

I built a secure and weatherproof box that's bolted to the bed, it's properly ducted and has run fine in all weather for 700 plus

RE: Dealing with campground reservations

We are fulltimers. Booking for this year has been a chore as the reservation widows have been a moving target but , we know where we wanted to be (mostly state parks) and finally got the year programmed and reserved all the way out to the middle of October. Then bail down the coast to AZ

RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

I have 3 7gal blue jugs with one of the caps rigged with a valve and hose. I back the truck up to the filler on the trailer and stack one jug on the edge of the bed side, insert the hose and open the valve, no muss no fuss or, stack two jugs on the tailgate to get the required height to drain the jug.

RE: CA Redwoods Area for a 42' FW

The KOA just north of Crecent City make a great staging area as most the parks are a good day trip.

RE: Nascar Follies

In my experience, many years of racing THEN designing, financing, constructing, operating a racetrack,.....some of the safety rules are dictated by the insurance company. FWIW I agree with this one, afterall; Dega is home of the big one. OK, so what about JJC's resume disqualifies her? She's turned a lot of laps at Daga.

RE: Nascar Follies

Good thing Jimmy went to Indycart. I am totally done with NASCAR, pulling the rug out from under Jennifer Joe Cobb was the last straw. It seems they feel the need to satisfy their TV overlords rather than concentrate on good racing, I've had enough of the silly little weenie rules they choose to or not enforce to effect the outcome of races. The fix is in, Kim Kardassion is going to be the next Champion.

RE: Landing Gear Lubrication

There's actually 3 parts. The reduction gearbox between the motor and leg, easy to disassemble clean and regrease. The bevel gear on top of the leg, easy to disassemble and regrease. and lastly, the jack screw in the leg. I have 6 of these jacks in my leveling system and it takes me about an hour per jack to pull it off tear it down clean and regrease. The front jacks take a bit longer to get out and reinstall. Take pictures to make sure you orientate the parts properly.

RE: Nascar Follies

I turned the tv on to my local Fox race channel and all I heard was Bubba this...Bubba that. Switched the channel to a nature program. Switched back over to Fox later and saw two laps of the usual race parade before the smash up. Watched replays and then Fox goes back into their Bubba this and Bubba that mode. Soooo disgusted with Nascar....nothing changed from last year. Guess they finished the race but I doubt this old man who was a big NASCAR fan will not watch this season either. If Michael Jordan wasn't Bubba's owner he'd still be driving in relative obscurity. He led one lap last night. He finished second in 2018. What's the bigger accomplishment? I'm wondering if they're going to humiliate Kyle Larson before every race this year until Bubba wins one.

RE: Anybody still tow with an old GM?

I had a 2003 Burb, 2500 with the 8.1. Did a good job of towing the boat, but I must say, I don't understand what all the fuss is about. I think that engine is WAY over rated, especially if you compare it to the more modern engines. The 6.2 in the Yukon Denali that replaced it was a more powerful tow engine, and got better MPG towing than the 8.1 ever did solo. Make no mistake. We are living in "the good ole days". Well, my car payment for the last 12 years has been 0. How bout you?

RE: Anybody still tow with an old GM?

Just finished putting a coat of wax on my 05 CC long bed 2500HD 8.1 Allison with 120K on the clock. Not a scratch on if.

RE: Do propane fire pits put out any heat?

A friend stands up a piece of 14x18x1/2 steel plate in his pit and it puts out a lot of heat when it heats up. Is that heat bounced off the steel plate? Or do you think the steel just gets hot and then radiates out in all directions? Probably the latter...
