RE: New F-150 Electric P/U

It will work for some folks, but not most folks. The same is true for any truck. Right now it won't work for anyone since they don't sell them yet.

RE: Reviewing results from CAT scale weigh in

Exceeding the receiver rating concerns me way more than 200 lbs light on the front axle. You restored 440 out of 640 which is not bad. I think blue ox has 2K bars. Your 1710 TW Calc is correct.

RE: Almost lost reservation in AZ park

Did you pay in advance for this site? You should tell us the park.

RE: Bad lands area

Was 10 bucks in 2015 when I was there. Didn't bother me a bit.

RE: MI counties that allow RV parked all summer?

You should be grand fathered. Apply with the county for an exemption.

RE: Zion to Bryce

14 is steep up a 4000 foot elevation change. I would take 20.

RE: F150 Lightening

Texas already has more wind power than any other state. Number 2 in solar.Good time to install the cold weather pack on these for the next winter. No reason to watch them freeze up while Norway can operate year round. Agreed.

RE: F150 Lightening

No calls from CA to conserve in this week's heat wave. In Texas meanwhile... it's now fry after last winter freezing to their death. Gov Abbbott ask Texans to Conserve ElectricityMaybe get on board with the infrastructure plan and request some grid improvements? Maybe go in on some wind/solar? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ercot-texas-power-grid-asks-users-to-conserve-during-blistering-heat-wave/ Texas already has more wind power than any other state.

RE: F150 Lightening

Parochial charging networks like Supercharger and Rivan's proposed network are a detriment to EV acceptance. I have never pulled into a gas station and not been able to fill up because I drove the wrong brand of vehicle. All the different systems and plugs don't help either.Diesel used to be fairly uncommon around town. Mostly just along highways. Then came the diesel cars and now diesel can be found on almost every corner. I believe the same is happening with electrics. Most plugs are standard or there are two connectors. Even today you need to choose regular/super/E15 or whatever. Not all stores take Discover or AMEX either. And for many it is best for more of this to get sorted out before they jump into the future. Of course the best electric network and most used will be your home charging and included on your existing electric bill at a cost of half or less than the gas/diesel you are currently using. That's great if you have a single family residence that can support the extra amps. There are probably way over a hundred million people in this country that don't live in one. 'Home' charging is also going to a giant issue to EV adoption.

RE: F150 Lightening

I agree charging is the most important issue EV's have for future growth. You should be able to use any charger you see IMO. There should be standardization across all vehicles and chargers.

RE: Inflated hopes for EV P/U

That doesn't sound right to me.

How does stuff like that even get published.

RE: Las Vegas

The Oasis is worth the extra money. Nice, safe and very close to the strip for your Uber ride.

RE: Lithium Ion Batteries...Yikes

A Chevy Bolt did the same thing about a week ago. Could have easily burned down the house.

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

Florida just enacted new voting laws that place additional rules and restrictions around mail-in ballots, so be sure to ask how a forwarding address would be treated under the new laws. The state will mail the requested ballot to your address. (The same address on your DL and everything else that is supplied by the mail service) The mail service sends it to you wherever you are. You send the ballot to the state. I don't see an issue.

RE: State route 20 near Panguitch Utah - 89 to the 15.

20 is not bad. 14 is steep.

RE: If it works for EV commercial trucks will it work for EVRVs

If you want to save money and the environment... get a tent and a bicycle. And yes people actually do this and no one gives them grief. Otherwise yes. An EV RV will work for some. I wish them well, same as the cyclist. X2

RE: GM Spokesperson admits energy to charge cars comes from coal

So, it is "green" to... 1. Consume millions of gallons of water to mine lithium via a production processes that my native state, California, would never permit--due to the environmental destruction. (OK to destroy land that is far away?) 2. Mine an element that has an extremely limited supply. Lithium makes up 0.0007 percent of the Earth’s crust. Chile produces most of the element for the world market, with Australia coming in second. 3. Consume 3,000 - 32,000 gallons of water to extinguish an EV fire (while at the same time requiring installation low flush toilets in new homes requiring 2-3 flushes). 4. Create an energy cell (lithium battery) that is both a fire hazard and has killed many people (including 34 people that burned alive in the dive boat Conception). 5. To recycle said energy cell at near 100% efficiency, the material must be smelted at 1500°C (over 2700°F). 6. To fire said smelter to over 2700°F, will surely require fossil fuels (transported by those ugly diesel truck tankers, as pipelines are no longer chic, Keystone). 7. When I was young, I remember being told that nuclear power is a great source for alternative energy (it burns no fuel and no greenhouse pollutants are emitted). Problem was what to do with the spent fuel rods, as there was no operational plan to transport and store them. 8. What is the plan to transport, store and recycle the nearly 13 million tons of EV batteries when they are replaced during 2021-2030? IMO, strategies of "hope" are usually destined to failure; as not everyone will do the right thing, at the right time.Oh, you're just being a hater and naysayer. Those problems will all be worked out, just ask the EV proponents, just don't expect specific answers. Rather, you'll hear "We've faced problems before and got through them", "Technology is progressing faster every year, those issues will be solved too", "If you constantly nitpick, you'll never get anywhere". :) I guess when you have no counter argument it is time for name calling.

RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

That is the ugliest thing I have seen! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51121357791_eac25bb677_c.jpg It's the future, not the past. Now if they will only build one ... then 649,999 to go.
