RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

I leave my key fob in the truck then lock the truck. When I get done swimming I open the truck with the keypad on the door and away I go.

RE: Battery Powered Lawn Mower

I’m all done buying gas power equipment. Once the EPA decided in their infinite wisdom we weren’t allowed to adjust carburetors anymore, gas power equipment became a huge PIA to keep running properly. My garage is becoming void of gas power equipment. Everything will eventually be battery powered. Personally I’m going with the 80V.

RE: Some Towing Math and Questions

Polish - the tongue weight of the trailer also counts as cargo on the truck. If your trailer weighs 7500 lbs loaded and ready to go camping, you can estimate the tongue weight will be 12% of that = 900 lbs. Take the 900 lbs plus add the people in the truck (you prev said 800 lbs) = 1700 lbs. That puts you 190 lbs over you cargo rating (1510 lbs.) (also known as payload rating) without putting anything in the bed of your truck. Read up Here

RE: Another Towing Question

Yes, your 7500lb trailer will likely weigh 9k lbs loaded for a trip. I had a 7100lb 35ft trailer and loaded for a trip it weighed in at 9000-9300 lbs depending on length of trip. You will not be happy with the F150 towing that kind of weight, and remember it's not just the weight but e high profile of the TT in the wind. If you really wanted the F150 you should've gotten the Max towing and HD chassis with opted for the V-8. I would be looking at a 3/4 ton truck. Rams can be had with rear air suspension which will ride better, they also come with coil springs all around as standard which will ride better than leaf springs. And even with the 3.5 eco boost that motor will be wound up all the time with the turbos spooled up to keep that load moving!Not really. The difference between the 5.0 V8 and the 3.5 ecoboost is a whole 20 hp (395 vs. 375) and the 3.5 ecoboost develops peak hp at a lower rpm then the 5.0 V8. And we won’t even talk about peak torque difference between the two, it’s pretty impressive how much better the 6 cylinder is.

RE: Another Towing Question

Now that you know what all the real numbers are ( from the stickers) you can go here and learn what all the numbers mean and how to figure out if you are within the F150’s ratings Clicky The way I see it, you got about 400 lbs+/- for passengers and cargo in the truck.

RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

Yes they'll pay up to the limits of your policy. It's the follow on Civil Suit by those Lawyers that advertise on the Tele getting Millions for their clients.Show me a link to any such suit for an RV accident that has been filed and won. The are no such suits - it’s all internet hogwash.

RE: Gas Credit Cards

So far this year I have saved $248.90 buying my diesel fuel at Kroger's and using their fuel points. 1/05/21 Lexington Ky 15.6 gallons saved $15.60, dollar off per gallon 1/22/21 Batavia OH 35 gallons saved $35, dollar off per gallon 1/29/21 Jeffersonville IN 35 gallons saved $35, dollar off per gallon 2/05/21 Nashville, TN 35 gallons saved $84, $2.40 off per gallon 2/07/21 Benton AR 35 gallons saved $35, dollar off per gallon 2/07/21 New Caney, TX 35 gallons saved $35, dollar off per gallon 2/08/21 Rosenberg, TX 23.819 gallons saved $14.29 saved .60 per gallonIf you used a credit card for those purchases at Kroger, you would have got 1.5% +/- cash back plus the same fuel points.

RE: Best Company for Extended Service Plan (ESP)

Read it before you sign. There may be things like $100 inspections (as an example) you may have to have done yearly or the warranty won’t provide coverage. Just read it first, completely, so you can be fully aware of whats covered, what’s not, and your responsibilities.

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

At the end of the day no one will force a business owner to adapt.Which is why the EV charger will be located somewhere very close to the electrical service entrance infrastructure (which may not be anywhere close to your site). If you want to charge your EV you take there, if not you’ll adapt. The cost of running the amount of power needed to provide EV charging to individual site is astronomical. It is not economically feasible. It’s not like running power from your breaker panel to your garage. But you can go ahead and keep believing the parks are going to come to you or go broke. I think different parks will adapt different ways, just like hotels, golf courses, restaurants. If the park can only afford to add a few J1772 L2 EVSE's then I am sure that the EVer would appreciate them. I know I would.So you would “appreciate” one; but how much extra over and above a non EV serviced site would you and your fellow EV’ers be willing to pay? Appreciation rarely pays the bills; however money talks and...

RE: polyurethane refinish for dining table?

Providing it’s a wood table, yes you can refinish it like that. I would probably use 100 to start, and plan on doing at least 3 coats with 220 between coats.

RE: Power pedestal wiring question

I'm sure there are pedestals out there wired like you described but there is no way of knowing without looking at how it's wired inside and that does not happen without opening up the pedestal and no one does that. I suppose one could just turn off the 30A breaker and then check if the 20A receptacle still has power. Just like BB_TX wrote on page 1.you got to ask yourself just one question - how do you run the wire off the back end of the 30 amp breaker to the front end of the 20 amp breaker? And what would the electrical inspector say? Not to mention, Why would you do that?

Do yourself a favor and spend the big bucks for the factory towing mirrors.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

As far as I”m concerned, most of this thread is pure garbage. Claims of all types are backed up by nothing. My dad told me “if it seems to good to be true, it probably isn’t. When I read posts like this thread where people are boasting about all the supposed Benefits, I keep tripping over the fact that all these claims and boasts are accompanied by links to reliable sources. And so when I discard everything the has no backup, I’m left with 12 pages of an entertaining science fiction novel. I suspect the truth is a wildly different story then the one predicted here, with a hell of a lot more zeroes behind the ultimate price tag.

RE: 2500HD ride

Take the two springs you added off, buy a weight distribution hitch, install it and get it adjusted properly, and you’ll improve your ride by leaps and bounds.

RE: RV Dealers

Depends on what the market is like. If they have more customers than trailers to sell, they’ll hold out for the highest price the can squeeze you for. If the have lots of trailers and no customers, the thrown in incentives can be pretty lucrative. There is no such thing as normal, what’s normal today could be out the window next week.
