RE: DEF Math

What we learned in the class 8 world is high EGT's (power demand) result in increased NOx emission which = increased DEF use. In a working class 8 truck that was around 1-2% DEF vs fuel. If I owned a DEF using pickup I would measure in some DEF fills at the pumps vs fuel used and soon have a rate vs fuel use vs work we are doing today factor to know when to fill the DEF tank. a shopping plaza or China parts store to buy DEF in a cardboard box down aisle 300. In my case my DEF use is erratic because my truck is my daily driver. I'm not towing all the time. Tying to calculate/predict my DEF use based on my driving habits is futile. Just need a gauge! Wanting a gauge for DEF is not unreasonable.

If I messed up and needed some emergency like, I know all heavy truck and equipment dealers who sell current emissions engines are required by law to stock DEF - truck dealers, ag dealers, and likely yellow construction equipment now too. They are often located along main highways. That would be the day I would exit a trip and drive around looking for a shopping plaza or China parts store to buy DEF in a cardboard box down aisle 300.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

It’s real folks this snowcat operates with the camper. The company developed a modified camper jack system to unload the camper including a breakdown situation on the snowfield if necessary. They carry the jacks on board. And use the camper on a std pickup in the off season.

RE: Cant get parts shipped from USA to Canada

Did you contact the seller on Ebay? Often a seller will ship via USPS if you call them and ask. Have done it many times. I would try this if this seller has the part ^

RE: Tesla cold start @ -17C /0F

Interesting just like your post Nov. 15th was. I like looking at real world info for these technologies. The range or “mileage” reduction he talks about is similar to what I see with a diesel pickup in the same conditions.

RE: What truck are you using?

A Big Camper will only take weight off the steer axle if it’s horizontal Center of gravity (mass) is behind the rear axle. Accurate math needs to be applied to weight distribution.

RE: Aluminum Framed Vacumn Bonded Lamination

My next camper if there is one will be a fiberglass - foam composite body like made by Total Composites. I will have to manage the build myself. My requirements are pretty simple: no holes in the roof, all systems inside the climate controlled envelope, light weight/size ratio, warm in winter cool in summer. Oh and no swoops and swirls on the outside. Maybe a 10 ft Northern Pike deecal...

RE: CDN Snowbirds getting their RV's across....

If travelling to where those "other" people are is a guarantee of automatic infection, why did my travel insurance provider email me the other day letting me know C-19 treatment is now covered under my policy? I've thought of shipping across this winter. My concern is needing to go to a densly populated area to an airport to fly in a airplane to all of above again in order to recover my social distance living rig to go to remote places to live by myself. The flying part makes no sense. I can handle the rest.

RE: My windshield nightmare.

The latest on this. I received a phone call from the glass company. They are going to blame the running lights. Even though when I put water on the windshield I make sure no water gets on the lights. I am looking for an attorney now and I am going to reseal the lights. Kent N6WT Pressurize the interior with a fan and find the leak with soapy water.
