RE: Dealers lots are filling up

When I show you the video of the father in Dearborn leafing through just such a book as I described - then what? Do you then claim it wasn’t really on the shelf in their kids elementary school? (Or maybe it’s the updated version of “The Diary of Anne Frank”) Just keep drinking the koolaid - Don’t let facts get in the way.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Would you let your 8 year old read something like Hustler magazine? Or watch XXX rated movies? There is a difference between “banning books” and keeping particular age inappropriate materials away from kids. I should of said “For most people there is a difference…”

RE: UP with hookups

Pick any state park in Michigan, just about all of them have electric. Most will not have water and sewer onsite, most will have a dump station and water on premises. Just pick an area, find a state park nearby, make your reservation online.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

The dealer doesn’t need a memo, he is the first to know what is selling and what it’s selling for. If he still has a huge markup, maybe he knows something you don’t know (rather then you knowing something he doesn’t know).

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Upside down? Used vehicle prices are astronomical; upside down comes next year when the recession arrives and prices crash.

RE: Stops Catalytic Converter thefts! (inexpensive method)

Wow, they stole a cat on an escape with no jack! That must of been a real slim thief.

RE: Cargo trailers to tow behind an RV

Lots of people I know do motorcycle racing, cart, 4x4, boat and other types of racing. Most of them have motor homes and pull trailers; the majority pull enclosed trailers. Just make sure the puller is sized and equipped properly for the task, in total.

RE: Solar power

Are you planning on camping in Canada in late October/early November with only solar - Good Luck!

RE: Heating the Garage

If your basement has a wet bay hole for hoses, television cords, plug it up and and just use a 40 watt lightbulb in there. We were in a NC campground during the winter of 20 while our home was under construction. Had many mornings 12-15 degrees not getting above freezing all day.Referring to the clarification, and the several clarifications of the clarification - it's clear he is not talking about the basement, he is indeed talking about the garage; and surely, a 40W light bulb will not heat the garage.

RE: Likely to regret

I agree with Rick - it is probably overkill for a 30-foot 5er. But you should be able to trade for a very nice F350/3500. The upside is the 1-ton is a lot more parking lot friendly for site seeing.

RE: Cummins vs Hummer Towing 6,000 lbs

There're many studies showing the closer to the cab a 5th wheel sits (commercial semis), the less drag. One extreme is euro semis, where the trailer is almost touching the cab fairing. Mercedes got 18 l/100km (13 mpg) at 88k lbs GVW. The other extreme is stretched show trucks (300+ WB Petes), 5 mpg on a good day. Best mileage would be a short box pickup with a sliding 5th wheel. Have the 5'er up tight against the cab on the hwy.The cab of a semi is the same height as the trailer (they use wind deflectors on top of the tractor to ensure this). An RV fifth wheels sits way above the top of the pickup (usually much higher than a TT) and there is still a considerable gap; albeit less then a TT but it is not insignificant. Comparing semis to RV's is Apples and oranges. It's the differential in height along with the gap that matters. The TT has more gap, the 5er has more height. And the answer to which matters more is anecdotal at best. I wasn't comparing a semi to a pickup. I was comparing 2 semis, 1 with larger gap, 1 with smaller. Then 2 pickups, 1 with larger gap (TT), 1 with smaller (5'er). I do agree typical drag area is larger on a 5'er, but your Cd will be lower. Maybe not Cd*A, which depends on the size of the 5'er. A short box slider 5'er may have a gap of 3', while a long box TT will have a gap of ~14' (8' box + 1' hitch + 5' a-arm). 3 vs 14 makes a difference.Good job with the “editing”. Now you changed from the same truck pulling different trailer to different trucks pulling different trailers - and hence can predict which setup will get better mileage; and it’s still anecdotal at best.

RE: Oven will not ignite

Try cleaning the flame proofer. It’s the small metal rod that sticks out into the pilot light flame.

RE: Installing new line for propane grill

Remove the regulator on the grill and tap into the low pressure line anywhere on the RV; or leave the regulator on the grill and tap into the propane line before the regulator. Your choice. There is a finite distance you can go with this line before you won't have enough gas pressure to satisfactorily operate the grill. So shorter is better.

RE: Cummins vs Hummer Towing 6,000 lbs

Cummins12V98. Please explain. 'Tow behind trailers eat more fuel than 5er's.' Thanks.I think it's all anecdotal, but there have been quite a few posts over the years that indicate just that. Speculation has been that the fiver is very close to the truck, reducing drag, despite being taller.Key word here being “anecdotal” There're many studies showing the closer to the cab a 5th wheel sits (commercial semis), the less drag.

RE: 1998 Teton Kingman wiring schematic.

As far as appliances, stove, refrigerator, furnace, etc; you can obtain those manuals by manufacturer and model number, online.

RE: Medicare For Full Timers

I spoke to a representative at eHealth and I think I have found a plan that will work, at least for the beginning of 2023. It is a PPO Medicare Advantage plan from Humana available in my zip code. It gives me back $110 per month of the Part B premium. It includes a travel coverage provision that allows me to get the standard rates from any in network provider in the USA. However, when they find out I have moved they will probably cancel the plan and I will have to look for a new plan. I plan to leave my address as is and get all of my correspondence via email. When Medicare discovers I have moved they will probably notify Humana and the clock will start ticking. I will also set up a virtual mailbox in Dallas and I may do a search for plans in that zip code to see if Humana offers something there and I may update my address when I leave Texas.The key words in your post that will screw you over is “any in network provider”. Good luck finding one; especially a specialist.

RE: EV charging quandry

Keep guessing! Refueling ICEs in the very early days was done by buying gasoline in one gallon containers from a hardware store. Lead, follow or get out of the way. California chooses to lead.Leads to what? Good example of how CA leads
