RE: Cybertruck may have 1 million-mile battery

Is that a Mark 2 frying pan stuck in the snow there? I mean Pan, frying - Mark 2

RE: BC Residents only

BC is making it very clear that it is BC residents only in the provincial campgrounds. If a camper were to have non-BC plates, they could/will be refused. https://www.castanet.net/news/BC/300622/Camping-in-BC-provincial-parks-for-BC-residents-only-this-year?fbclid=IwAR3XHCSlA_cguIGZfNwAJRFOrKdLOEFVYS6q8lx7LiC8Z1xyd81My6c5avo#300622 Gary Haupt So if I show up in my Ontario plated MH and a copy of my several BC property tax bills they will refuse me? That won’t end well for them....... The plates on the vehicle don’t determine residency.

RE: BC Residents only

Section 6 of the Charter might interfere with Provinces or Territories discriminating against people based on residency. You can’t blockade borders inside Canada unless you apply the emergency reason to everyone. But it makes good divisive news and invokes an appearance of taking action against “those people” from the other place. They would do better to speak to people as adults and say in the interest of controlling spread, you people camp in your back yard and we’ll stay home in ours this summer. Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba are all saying essentially the same thing: opening for their provincial residents only, with a few exceptions. BC campgrounds are normally overbooked so this is a solution to manage campground capacity and social distancing. I'm disappointed at not being able to camp in my usual favorite sites but understand completely under the circumstances. It will give each province the opportunity for their residents to explore their own back yard. Not a bad thing. Howie Totally agree. Yep. Got some little canoe trips planned on a couple local rivers, some moto camping planned, camper trip or two not involving “campgrounds”. No need to visit B(ring) C(ash) this year :) It will still be beautiful in the future.

RE: Odd statement in a review of the Lance 650

The box sides on late model Sooper Duties are too tall for some camper models to be loaded on the box floor. Can’t remember what years.

It’s time for Bilsteins on my F three fitty camper truck. The work good on the Fargo.

RE: Do I have this math/ understanding right?

You figger this out using lever math with the center of the trailer axle group as the fulcrum for cargo behind the trailer axles. The distance from the king pin to the cargo center of gravity is the length of the lever. Use beam or bridge math for cargo between the king pin and the trailer axles. The cargo weight is distributed to the king pin and axle group center in proportion to its distance from each. It is possible to calculate weight distribution very accurately this way, even with a pencil and paper.

RE: Water in Fuel? When Do You Drain the Filter?

I think periodic fuel filter changes is a waste of time and money. If you get dirty fuel the new filter will plug almost immediately.... if the fuel you get is clean your filters will last for years. Some of my diesel engines haven't seen a filter change in 15 years. I change my fuel filters if I notice a lack of power or when the fuel restriction gauge shows a problem. Don’t tell anyone but I was learned in Fleetguard filtration school that air filters need not be changed until the restriction indicator says to change. They do a better job of filtering as they load with dirt.

RE: Double towing

Commercial trailers and semitrailers designed for fully grown trucks are way more stable and brake capable vs RV “wheels halfway up the frame” teeter totter configurations complete with 12 volt non ABS brakes.

RE: Cybertruck may have 1 million-mile battery

So let’s say a person is okay owning a pickup truck for many years. Doesn’t feel the need to change to the bigger distraction screen and bigger than a Kenworth’s grille (look underneath - they still come with wagon springs ... except that stupid air ride the class 8 world hasn’t figured out is no good - I digress)... Everything turns relatively slow in an electric wheel end motor vehicle, nothing really reciprocates, the main propulsion uses electron pressure which should still be around in 20 years ... lower vibration frequency, and wear rpm, no corrosive gas exhaust system, no leaking fuel system, no prop shaft, no hydraulic transmission or steering system (or brakes?) no gear reduction axles with bearings failing, no leaking radiator, no it’s too cold it won’t start, no idling, ... The main issue now is battery and recharge technology... What if battery technology keeps evolving and your 10 year old EV can have new tech swapped in vs a total replacement of the vehicle? What if the 4 cylinder engine in my mid 2000’s Ford Model A 1/4 ton pickup ( Ranger ) has more power and efficiency and lifespan than my neighbors restored 1928 Model A pickup?

RE: Double towing

When the focus of pickup OEM’s is always “moar power” and winning the race to the top of the hill for the coveted blue ribbon, I can see why a mountainous province or state that gets winter restricts RV super trucker combination vehicles with 500 hp - 1000hp (with deletes and tuner and stacked turbo’s and 6 no 8 no 10 speeds) and 12 volt brakes.

RE: Cybertruck may have 1 million-mile battery

The Fast Lane Truck podcast had the chief of Atlis electric trucks on the show. Interesting conversation about battery technology.

RE: Water in Fuel? When Do You Drain the Filter?

As others have mentioned - in about 500,000 miles of driving personal diesel vehicles I have never had the water sensor trigger. I always drain a bit of fuel from the separator into a glass jar at oil change time and look. I buy fuel at “top tier” suppliers from stations that turn good volume. The high pressure common rail injection system on a modern engine is capable of smashing water present in the fuel into an emulsion. As mentioned there are fuel conditioners designed to allow this minute trace contamination to pass through the injectors without causing undue damage.

RE: Factory tow ratings apparently assume empty tow vehicle

My dually has a payload of 16,500lbs approx. so I round to the nearest 500... :h It’s a 160” wheelbase 4 passenger 2 door Kenworth, 12K front 21K rear, parks in the same footprint a DRW pickup needs, turns tighter than my 350/3500 pickups. Weighs around 14-15k unladen.

RE: Rear Axle Fluid Change Differential Cover with drain plug.

Before you swap out the cover take a look at Banks website for a video of how diff cover design affects lubrication of the axle gears.

RE: Air shocks on tandem axle - settle this debate.

Electric shocks ... I mean dampers ... shock absorbers... not “shocks” as in zap... Anyways- like my BMW has - adjustable on the fly - they work quite nice. Being a distant relative to Elmer Fudd I would start by securing stuff better inside the camper. Then I would install Trailer Flex air suspension.

RE: Replace Bushings in Leaf Springs?

If you choose to replace the springs have a specialist shop spec them correctly for the load and use - avoid the urge to buy the cheapest on line...
