RE: It is no wonder

Should've got a dually. You got a popup you need to tow??

RE: It is no wonder

I've had it pop up a few times, but it seems to happen when I get logged out for whatever reason such as a computer update or such. It isn't as annoying as those Captca things that make you select pictures multiple times. Those are the ones I usually just close and move on.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

Might be wrong, but I think the Ridgeline still has an in-bed box. The 2020 has a conventional bed with a gap between cab and bed just like other pickups. Ok. I haven't see a 2020 yet, but everything I have read said no significant changes. It will be interesting if they move to a conventional bed since the people I know that own one really like the in-bed storage.

RE: Power Jack Repair or Replace

I did the same thing with ours. I don't think it was an Atwood though. I was able to find the parts, but by the time I figured up the parts cost and shipping, I was within about $50 of just replacing the whole thing and not having to fool with the complete disassembly it would have taken to effect the repair.

RE: is this enough truck to replace my F150 ECO?

Neigbors would hate you pulling out at 6 a.m. Especially after letting it idle for 30 minutes to build up air pressure...:D Cool, but I'd hate to have to feed that thing.

RE: Built in vs. Stand-alone GPS?

I've had both (all three really with the cell phone). The in-dash was my least favorite. It was Garmin based and pretty easy to use, but eventually wouldn't accept an update for the maps. It wasn't adjustable as far as viewing angle so the sun would wash it out at times. The cell is good and I use it mainly locally, but the screen is smaller though it is usually the most up-to-date. The stand alone is my favorite. Larger screen than the cell; lifetime maps and so far hasn't refused to update; very easy to use; and I can move it from car to car including rentals if needed. It is a Garmin by the way that I've had about 8 years now. I have to keep it plugged in all the time because the battery is shot, but if I use the cell, I have to keep it plugged in also.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

Toyota still has a negligible market share because they thought they knew better what would sell. Only in recent years have they made any inroads as they moved towards what the Big3 sell...problem now is most buyers see toyota and think "toy" truck. I agree. I think Toyota and Nissan both wildly underestimated the impact of brand loyalty in the domestic pick-up market. I don't see it being any different for Tesla. What I think will be different is that I don't think Tesla's target audience is current Chevy/GMC/Ford/Ram owners. They are looking to grab the younger market who likely have never owned a pickup, but like the idea and the idea of an EV. I've talked with a number of young people 25 and under and with the exception of 2 now, all have said they love the design and would buy one today if they could afford it. Will I buy one? I won't say never. I hated the look of the Dodge trucks when they changed in 1994 (I think), but then owned one a few years later. I will just say that I'm not currently considering one.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

I agree on the crossover pickup. Don't get me wrong, I think it is UGLY, but I also don't think it is targeted at the market of truck buyers who are planning to put a truck camper or work rack on it or tow a 5th wheel. I've seen stats (I have no idea how accurate they are) that indicate 75% of truck owners tow less than one time a year. I'm pretty sure this is the market TESLA is going for. Well, the portion of this market that is under 25 anyway. Quick completely unscientific poll of my kids (16 and 19) and a few of their friends revealed all thought it was awesome and would buy one if they could afford it.

RE: Mens' belts left or right

I put mine on with the end facing towards my left. But then I'm probably not the person you want to consult on fashion...

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

I don't have any problems packing. Based on my wife's directions, I just take everything we own... Actually, we keep all of the non-perishables in the Pup all the time including chairs,bedding and toiletries. The only thing we typically pack is food, clothes, and meds. We are fortunate that our Pup actually has a good bit of storage inside and a front storage trunk that holds all of the set-up/cooking equipment.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

I really hope it is more concept than actual production vehicle. Even the wheel covers/rims are ugly.

RE: Medical Follies

At least you didn't text back "Oh, so they aren't taking you yet."

RE: Chevy's I4 2.7 turbo engine

Can't answer anything related to the reliability, but personally, I never buy the first year of any new major part of a vehicle or an all new vehicle. Inevitably, there bugs that have to be worked out and I don't like paying to be the tester. That said, it seems to be getting good reviews and I haven't seen a lot of complaints.

RE: I want to widen football field dimensions...

Football - I don't know about making the field wider would have much impact on the sideline plays. The defensive players now days are just as fast as the running backs and receivers so if they have to run an extra 5 yards, I don't think you would see them getting outrun still. There has been a lot of talk about speeding up the games (apparently the bands performing at halftime are the problem and not them taking a 3-4 minute TV timeout every time there is a stoppage in play) I would like to see them go to a running clock up until 2 minutes before the end of each half. It would only stop for review and injuries and as soon as the review is complete or the injured player is off of the field, it starts back. Basketball - I think they should go to a 1 point/2 point/3 point system for regular shots. A slam dunk or layup is 1 point; any other shot inside the 3 point line is 2 points; and keep the same 3 point system. Everyone cheers the dunks, but now days, virtually everyone on the team can dunk with ease so that isn't really a tremendous feat of skill. Give me the player that consistently hits the 3 point shots and I'll beat you almost every time. Golf - There should be heckling allowed. Not physically interfering with a player or shot, but talking to the golfer, cheers, chants, etc. It would make it more interesting to watch. Tennis - See Golf. Hockey - I'd have to understand it to make any suggestions. Soccer - See Hockey. My opinion, not that the powers to be care...

RE: Walmart Overcharge

My best Walmart cashier story... Bought a few items and it came exactly $5. Gave the cashier a $10. She gives me $15 back. I go to hand her the extra $10 back and say, "I gave you a $10." I know I gave her a $10 because that is the only bill I had on me at the time. She responded in a loud and very indignant voice while leaning towards me, "You gave me a $20." I do feel bad that her drawer probably came up short, but with the attitude expressed, I was done at that point. I have gotten a few items for free at a local grocery store when they didn't ring up the correct price (store policy, not me asking for them for free). I've also had items scan twice on a few occasions.

RE: seat covers

You might call Katzkin and see if they can make one for you (they don't have the F250 listed) or contact a local upholstery shop. They should be able to do one for you and should be able to come close to matching the color. If you don't know of a local place, reach out to some of the car dealers in your area and find out who they use. If you don't care as much about matching the back of the seat, you could go with something like this

RE: portable generator placement

You should be fine with the air able to circulate around it. People that get killed by their generator usually put it in the garage, with the exhaust coming into the living space, or in the living space itself. I would have no issue with putting it on an open porch with the exhaust facing outside. As was said, noise will be there, but compared to no power with the heat and humidity, it is probably tolerable... If it would make you feel better, put a box fan on the porch blowing across the generator to the outside, increasing the air flow away from the house.

RE: Accidentally plugged into 220v

Thanks for the story. Don't let the negative people on here get you down. There are some on here that never met a dead horse they didn't want to keep beating. Hopefully your other appliances are fine. I'm not sure how you could test them other than seeing if they work. You would need to know the test points and voltages to test the individual boards other than inspecting them for burned areas. You might want to fire up the fridge with a thermometer inside to make sure that it is cooling adequately and not just "running" though.

RE: fb/cell phone notifications

You should be able to go into the notifications area of your phone and turn off notifications for Facebook.
