RE: Pet peeve, neighbors leave porch light on

Both responses are what I expected from keyboard tough guys. The constant monitoring of this thread from both of you confirms exactly what I stated. Thanks for the laugh

RE: Pet peeve, neighbors leave porch light on

But is one camper's habit of leaving their outdoor light(s) on all night the campground's environment? Or is it an individual camper's idiosyncrasy? For me, I would say follow the lighting protocol of the campground. So, if the campground has no artificial lighting then leaving a porch light on all night would be a no-no. If there are lights outside the restrooms that are on all night, then a porch light would be reasonable. If there are "street lights", then additional lighting would be acceptable. And the campground may have different sections that differ in what's acceptable. A campground I visit often is like that. When you drive in, there is a long stretch with full hookup sites and "street lights". Around a corner is a loop with just electric and water. This loop has no " street lights" but has an outdoor light at the restrooms. Another section is dry, but has the outdoor bathroom light. The loop I stay at is dry, no "street lights", and a vault toilet with no lights at all. Across the road are three group sites with varying degrees of lighting. If someone came to " my" loop and left their porch light on all night, I'd take issue. But it'd be fine in the other sections. I can’t believe what I just readSeemed pretty straight forward and reasonable. Can't wrap your head around that? What I’m wrapping my head around is there’s a bunch of controlling (at least trying) bullies that try to dictate what’s acceptable (to them) of what you can and cannot do in a campground that they don’t own and that has no rules against. If you want to control every aspect of the night in a campground, do everyone a favor and either stay home or camp out in the desert. If seen enough in my lifetime of camping to know when someone is just an *******. For example “if someone came to “my” loop”. and also earlier in the thread “I’ve got the right to swing”. I’d welcome anyone to my door to ***** about a porch light(btw, I don’t even have one). I’d be willing to bet it would be “lights out” for one of us. I hope I dumbed it down enough for ya.

RE: Pet peeve, neighbors leave porch light on

The next full moon is October 20th. I wonder how many in this thread will be shaking their fist at it?

RE: Pet peeve, neighbors leave porch light on

I’m wondering what some of you do when you have to camp near a bathroom or shower building? Or god forbid, a streetlight? Do you complain about those too? Maybe you should rent 3 or 4 sites so a simple porch light won’t keep you up all night. Maybe start a campground that has a “lights out” rule 30 minutes after sunset? Good grief

RE: How to carry blackstone griddle

Sounds like some people aren’t flipping the griddle over before storing it? That solves worrying about getting grease inside the bag.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

My local dealer has had 0 Super Duty’s delivered in the last 5 months. He has had several used ones for 50-60K.

RE: Endurance Tires

The trailer shows a 7495 GVWR = 1875 lbs per tire.... Dry weight says around 6265 = 1560 lbs per tire.... This = around 1200 lbs of CCC so most likely the trailer will weigh close to its 7495 lb max gvwr. The Endurance ST 205/75-15 load D at 65 psi and a 2175 lb load capacity will give the trailer a nice 15% load reserve capacity. ? Some tire dealers have excellent experience with trailer wheels tech and tires tech (matching pressures/load capacities/proper width/etc).......others ??. For this trailer I would stick with the OEM sizes/load ranges. edit ....jim Are you forgetting tongue weight deducts from axle weight? The 7500 GVW would be closer to 6500 on the axles.

RE: Big Tires pulling Small tires.

Many open snowmobile trailers have 8-10” rims and tires that have 20” diameters. Highway towing is NOT an issue. In fact etrailer has tires that are rated for 81mph. As long as the bearings have the proper maintenance and the axle isn’t overloaded there’s nothing to be concerned about. Plenty of cars had 13” wheels 20 years ago.

RE: Timbrem or Sumos on F150

I have the black Sumos on my F150 with a 1” gap. It rides like stock when unloaded and drops 2” when towing the 5th wheel. Would definitely buy again.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford 150 3.5 EcoBoost

The rig in my signature “engine brakes” better than any gas tow vehicle I’ve had including GM’s 5.3, 6.0, and 6.2. BTW my 5er weighs 10K lbs so it’s not exactly light for a 1/2 ton.

RE: New truck pricing

I was thinking that exact same thing seeing pictures of rows incomplete vehicles waiting for chips/etc. With the end of the model year approaching and knowing Tesla has over a million preorders for their fast coming Cybertruck (maybe not something us RVers would want but still digging into truck sales overall), it seems like the legacy manufacturers will feel the need to chop prices dramatically to move the backlog once they obtain parts to finish them. I kind of doubt finishing those trucks is only a matter of plugging in a part and shipping them. I would think the vehicle would still need final inspections back on the line and then need to be loaded and shipped. I wouldn't think those trucks would be at dealers until at least September when buyers would be expecting to see 2022s. With GM and Ford teetering, this might be the end of one of them Teetering? You can’t be serious

RE: 1/2 ton towing a 5th wheel

If you're within weight limits, it should work. Be prepared to get 5 mpg when towing. Keep it under 65. You lose all credibility when you make a statement like that.

RE: 1/2 ton towing a 5th wheel

My 5th wheel is 10000lbs gross. My F150 HDPP w/ max tow has an actual payload rating of 2565 and a rawr of 4800. At the scales with me, wife and dog with a full tank of fuel, it’s at 7980 which is 130 over my 7850 rating which I can live with. Rear axle is 4500.(300 under) Pin weight is 1850 with a total trailer weight of 9600. With your particular version of F150 you’ll be overloaded and I’d strongly advise against it. If it had the HD payload package it would be doable. That’s what makes or breaks this combo.

RE: Blackstone Griddle

I just took my 17” on it’s first weekend. Transported it in the basement with the griddle plate flipped in the shipping position. Seemed to ride fine. I do have the bag like shown above on order. It comes with a cover for the griddle and the storage bag.

RE: Ford Electric F-150

The current F150 starts under $30,000. Bringing a whole new meaning to the term “going green”

RE: Uneven Bearing Temp

If the trailer is running nose high then it would make sense that there is more weight on the rear axle possibly making the bearings run warmer on that axle.
