what defines a 3/4 ton?

If it's payload capacity, then why isn't a properly equipped F150 considered a 3/4 ton truck?

RE: Social Security disability

My very limited knowledge, you can only collect disability if you can't work. Since she's already voluntarily not working...

RE: I have a question too ask

you do not want to be there when this "mess" implodes, and it will. I miss the old D&B reports. They were amazing at picking up company issues.

RE: What options?

Full Body Paint. Is it really worth the 10k additional cost?

RE: Modifying roof a/c cover

I previously watched it, and it made sense to me. Increasing air flow is a great idea, and due to molding constraints, they are balancing cost, mfg, and performance. I haven't done it, because my AC is working really well.

RE: shutting down generator with air conditioner running

Best practice shut down the air conditioner. Wait a while (5 minutes) and then shut down the generator. The same applies to large inverters. My Yamaha has a switch to shut down the power. Why wait 5 minutes?

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Fires fires Didya know that Every three minutes gasoline or diesel powered cars catch fire someplace in the US Why arent any of those carmakers being sued ? Do tell https://youtu.be/t84J5L6SZ68 Your number sounded way high... Luckily Google helped me out :) while the number is somewhat misleading it's mostly accurate and surprised me. Vehicular fire data One of the differences, When a Tesla catches on fire, it's very difficult to put the fire out. Fire dept are generally not equipped to deal with a battery fire. We had a battery pack being transported in the detroit area. They had to drive a fire truck from the airport approximately 30 miles to the fire to put it out.

RE: Do we or don't we?

I've also seen statistics that the sooner you retire, the longer you live. I can't explain that. Steve Let me count the ways! In the organization I work in, there's a bi-modal age distribution, large group in the middle 50's to early 60's and another group in the early 30's. Among my peers, most (but not all) are trying to figure out how we're going to get out and survive. All of us have the insurance concerns. I did have a financial planner tell me to burn through my savings and don't collect SS until (IRC) 72. Even if I get the insurance issue resolved, don't see getting to retirement before 63... too many things to do before then. For me, wildcard could be workload due to project status. I may have a choice handed to me... but with my "reputation" for getting things done, there are others that may go first. IDK, right now, have to get through my wife's upcoming surgery {major}, followed up several weeks later by my surgery {moderately minor}.

RE: On Call for Work While Camping

I can work from home most days... when away from the office, i generally have three internet sources, home or park wifi, work cell hotspot, and personal phone hotspot. I've never been in a spot where all three were inop.

RE: Camco EAZ-LIFT R6 TT Hitch

I have the R3, and in general love it. What I don't like about the R3, and is different from the R6, the R6 has a cam lock for the friction. R3 requires an allen wrench. If I have to disconnect with the trailer being at an angle to the truck, I have to loosen the bolt so I can straighten the hitch out later. What ends up happening, I just leave it loose most of the time.

RE: Can’t get dealer info I need on battery charging

Panel mounted digital volt meters are cheap on the internet. I installed a on/off switch on this one. Have a similar one in our 48V golf cart. I like it! Gives me another idea. In my golf cart, it shows level of charge. I could probably take the exact same meter and install it.

RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

No way China is using more coal... their use of BEV has increased substantially and continuing to grow. BEV's don't use coal. Almost typed that with a straight face.

RE: Do we or don't we?

Your personal health is also a factor.. Insurance is a big factor.

RE: Can’t get dealer info I need on battery charging

If the charger/convertor is WFCO, replace it. Install a 12V digital meter somewhere you can view.

RE: Pictures from Upper Michigan

Killing me... we had to cancel our UP trip that was supposed to happen last week. At least doing Mackinaw in a few weeks... assuming wife's somewhat urgent back surgery goes well.
