RE: Florida Camping

Don't want to be the wet blanket, but it is highly unlikely that you will just happen to find a spot at any Florida state park campground this time of year. While they take walk-ups, most if not all, do not reserve any walk-up sites. You have to reserve through Reserve America to ensure a spot. If you don't have a spot reserved, you will want to have a solid plan B because you are likely going to need it. Of course, I'm exactly the opposite. I want to know I have a spot and I don't even really like the places where you don't reserve your specific site.

RE: GM to introduce electric Hummer

Looks like an FJ Cruiser with the back trimmed down. I'll be interested to see if they can bring it to market.

RE: Proposed new gun law for interstate travel

I agree, that with the current make-up of the legislative branch, this is DRT (Dead Right There). I don't have a particular concern with bill as it only protects the transportation of the unloaded and secured firearm. It isn't allowing for concealed/open carry of a ready to use firearm.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

I would just pay for it and move on. As was said, you aren't handing over the cash until the RV is waiting on you and you have inspected it.

RE: IRA and new SECURE Act

I DO resent being told what I can or can not do with our hard-earned money, though. Especially when you may have already paid taxes on the money one time.

RE: Everyone's gotta see this VW.

I can appreciate the work that went into it. I wish I had that kind of talent. Mine would look more like a cartoon drawn by 5 year old...

RE: Remanufactured parts rant.....

Interestingly, the only reman part I've ever had a problem with was a alternator for a Toyota Sienna. O'Reilly replaced 2 under the lifetime warranty (or should I say "provided the replacement"). I don't know if you've ever worked under the hood of a minivan, but there ain't much space to spare under there and the alternator takes about an hour to get out. First one didn't work right out of the box. Of course, you don't know that until it is installed. Second one, had a bearing going out after about six months. Thankfully, the third was still going strong when we sold the van. At least it never stranded us anywhere.

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."
