RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

This whole thread is now Exhibit No. 1 of the Fake Media whipping the populace into hysteria. You have now entered the next Recession or possibly second Great Depression. The cause, shutting down "business as normal" for nothing. And you can solely thank the Media. Due care, dillegence and prudence is one thing, mass hysteria is another. Evidence of mass hysteria, why is it nearly impossible to buy a roll of toilet paper. Congratulations on being duped by the Media and good luck with your finances for the next 10 years, your going to need it.

RE: RV storage - how much room is needed?

Why not try backing it in, right now today before any more work is done on it. Lay the door out with paint and see if you can get it in there satisfactorily. I know pit run isn't cheap, but building a 48 x 32 pole barn you can't use for its intended purpose isn't cheap either.

RE: Sway Control options - help please

They both will do the same thing provided you know how it works and what you are doing - regardless of what the directions say.

RE: 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton

Here is my total cost analysis based on a Ram. It will be different for you depending on many things such as PM intervals/cost between the two, fuel prices in your region, interest rates, re-sale values and so on. https://i.postimg.cc/4NM2G2wL/5-7-vs-6-4-vs-6-7-2.png height=750 width=650Interesting, you don’t have insurance, cost of money, and you have a unrealistic interest rate. That’s just from a 3 second glance at it.

RE: RV Antifreeze

When is the last time y’all heard that someone died from accidental poisoning from RV antifreeze? Much ado about nothing

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

The builder may have left but the electrician is still around and they are bonded and the county should be able to answer questions as to why it passed inspections. If they can't answer that and agree it's wrong, I feel like the electrician can be made to fix it. We've been a little taxed with the hurricane but I expect to be able to call them on Monday.so What did you find out when you called?

RE: RV Fatality in Oklahoma

People die every day on the roadways for a wide variety of reasons; speeding, alcohol, texting, road rage, etc. While tragic, what makes this one so special? Do we need to set up a new forum "road deaths" so everyone can read about all the traffic incidents?

RE: Terrible Trucks

No doubt I'll get lots of disagreement on this. Just wondering how many young people on a budget are buying those nice trucks at $40000 and up;..."on a budget" means you identify and plan for all sources of income and spending (including, savings, retirement, emergencies, contingencies, etc.). Sounds to me like these two young people are doing it right and know exactly what they are doing.

RE: Ford F-350 Towing Spec

Stealing your own car and reporting it as stolen is Fraud, Fraud is a crime. Driving a truck above its payload rating is not a crime. Nothing illegal about it.

RE: Slideout Coming in Crooked

Most likely a Schwintek system. Plenty of trouble shooting videos on the net. In your case you might try running the slide all the way out then bring it in a foot then back out. Do that 3 or 4 times and it might fix the alignment issue. You might look for the controller and check for an error code.I don't have my schwintek book with me right now but I'm pretty sure that's what you don't want to do. What you do is run it out all the way and hold the button down an extra 3 or 4 seconds after it stops. Then run it in all the way and hold the button after it stops. You do that every time you run it in or out. Never stop when it is part way in or it.OK, call Lippert and tell them their video is wrong. When one side is moving differently than the other side you want to re-time the motors and what I previously posted is exactly what Lippert wants a person to do. LINKI stand corrected.

RE: OREGON STATE PARKS RANT

Here in the Willamatte valley of Oregon we have good camping weather well into fall and sometimes beyond. Oregon state parks are extremely popular in the fall with it being a challenge to find a spot. Despite data from their own web site proving this Oregon State Parks refuses to keep parks or loops open longer thus turning away revenue and camping opportunities to all. Milo Mciver campground closes October 31 yet reservation data shows high interest. Champoeg state campground closes A loop though usage is shown to be high through October. They just do not care. Very frustratingWhat did you conclude after you made the same Rant last year? RANT Even used the same All Caps title for the thread. Did you think the answers would be different?

RE: NEW TRUCK!!!

Some of you guys just continue to crack me up. Who gives a ratzass how someone pays for their truck, their RV, their hot tub, or any other damm thing they want to buy. They don't owe you, me, or anyone else an explanation at all. I don't care if you are someone who is a millionaire, or if you're someone who is barely making minimum payments. Its nunmydamnbusiness. I also don't care if you're the smartest investor in the world it matters not. Someone will undoubtedly tell me "I must care, becuase Im commenting". No, Im commenting because all you self rightous people looking down on someone because they financed their vehicle. I do care enough to tell your self centered self you can KMA. Yeah, I'm sure I'll be censored, but some of y'all really just need to STFU. Congrats OP on your purchase. Im sure you will enjoy it for years to come. Mike Gee, could someone point out for me the post(s) of the " self rightous people looking down on someone because they financed their vehicle" ????

RE: NEW TRUCK!!!

We’re talking about paying off a loan on a truck vs. Paying cash. Losing a home or business has nothing to do with paying for a truck. But hey, don’t let the facts interrupt the story hour.

RE: NEW TRUCK!!!

Wow, in 45 plus years I never had to cash in my inestments to pay off a loan. All I had to do was make a monthly payment. The 10 years of earnigs I already got should cover that nicely. But I am enjoying your fairy tales. Actually, that's probably a misnomer. There must be another phrase that's used for fantastical tales of sudden catastrophic failure, immediate bankruptcy, and an eternity of poverty; all in the same day.

RE: NEW TRUCK!!!

...But paying off, your 6% loans results in 6% earnings, garuanteed, risk and tax free...Clearly a false statement. You get zero earnings by paying a loan off. You get a savings of your own money you are not spending. Same as making a decision not to buy a snickers bar, money not spent, zero money earned. What you did do however, was lose the ability to earn potentially significant gains on the money you just spent to pay off that loan. And remember, you still have the ability to pay off the loan any time your gains no longer justify having it. In the meantime, you can gain very real earnings on which I gladly pay the tax, as I laugh all the way to the bank. My tax on 8.59% earnings is less than 2%.Must be new math. So you are saving money... That is the same as earning it... The big difference is it is tax free, and risk free. There are NO investments paying over 8% that are risk free. You CAN and people DO lose money on such investments. You yourself only give your stats for the last 9 years.. How did 2008 work out for you? Nick is actually correct. In simplest terms. If you have $100k in your gun safe and don't spend any of it, did you earn $100k that year? Spending frugally allows you to earn money by investing what you did not spend. But the simple act of not spending does nothing. If fact it is a net loser adjusting for inflation but very safe from market risk. It also allows you to lose money, including your principle. I notice how Nick does not talk about 2008, when just about everyone lost money on investments... True, most people have done alright, including myself since then, but even in a bull market, there are losers. In fact in todays market, it is harder than ever before to find safe investments that will pay more than what inflation and taxes will take. Let me answer your question about 2008. Just Google The worse 10 years in stock market history and you'll have your answer. But no matter what I say, your mind is already made up and not open. So be it. But you really shouldn't be giving finacial advice if you think saving money and earning money is the same thing. Just remember, I still have the money to pay off the loans any day I want plus I get to keep the accumulated earnings. Actually, I want to thank you. It's people like you so afraid of losing money who play it so safe that you will take peanuts for return on your investments that allow people like me to borrow that money and only pay peanuts to you while i keep my money invested in more reasonable ways (remember that Google search). Yup I lost money in 2008. Even worse I lost a whole ton of money last year. Guess what, I've already made back everyhing I lost last year, plus a boat load more on top of that this year. So excuse me while I go pay my taxes.

RE: 50A questions

OK, here is the deal. If you plug your new trailer into a 50A outlet with neutral missing, you burn up most of your AC devices with 240V across them...Um No it won't. A missing neutral will not cause an otherwise properly wired 120V device to see 240V.
