RE: When to change oil

I usually reset the meter when it displays change oil soon … then the next time it comes up I change it if I still own the truck. Honestly why change oil at all on your rigs. :B I change it 100% for the benefit of the next owner. There is absolutely no value in it for me. Probably a lot of us are in this same boat, only difference is some think they're doing engine oil changes for their own benefit. Let me understand this? You spend 5 figures on a vehicle and drive it 10k or so and sell it? How does that pencil out?

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

Every body, I mean everybody sells your information. In New York and I imagine many others state,motor vehicles sells you information. I had a serious motorcycle crash in '81. I lost every shred of interest in the things. I keep the endorsement on my license just because?,and my feed is inundated with cycle content. Wegmans knew though my courtesy card that I had bought a can of recalled Manwich.(months after the fact) It is really disheartening to me when folks express surprise or dismay at the level of information that is gathered. Please educate yourself.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

There's a simple solution...go out and buy 10's of thousands of acres of range land. Build a road into the center of it and post no trespassing signs. Then you can set whatever rules you want for appropriate camping activities. As long as it's public land and they are following the rules (official rules, not the ones you make up in your head), they have as much right to use the land as you do. You probably are seeing a new crowd. If there is cell coverage, they may be out camping and working at the same time. Did you go over and talk to them...get to know them? Or did you sit their stewing over the newbies who don't know how to camp the right way? Yes oh yes oh yes Preach truth brother!!!

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

Nothing at all wrong with Facebook. Facebook is wide open and there is no secret that it is a data mining site. Every thing in our modern tech driven society is using and abusing your information. If you are naïve enough to think that it is all innocent fun,well then I am sorry. Most of us that use Facebook and the myriad of other social media platforms know exactly what we are getting into.

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

I use a small 19.89 grill from Walmart. Table top model. Sits about six inches from the surface. Does get hot and I once melted a plastic table.

RE: Places to fill with fresh water and clever ways to fill ..

You just need to get brave. I only remember one time I was refused water in due too meaness or policy in my travels. All buildings have outside spigots. You just need to be confident enough to walk into a business, be it a store,gas station,church,diner,whatever,and ask. Cemeteries usually will have spigots available. I once even stopped and asked a woman watering her lawn if I could fill up. Just get brave.

RE: Walkens Glenn

Watkins Glen KOA is a nice park, pricey but nice. If you have kids it is heads and shoulder above Clute.Up close to the track and the upper park. Watkins is walkable,but it is quite the hike from Clute to the park. Plenty of walking to be done in the gorge,don't know that you would want a fifteen minute walk on top of the hike. You are going to drive or bike to get to the park from either choice.

RE: Plug or unplug that is the question

I always unplug, if just for an overnite. I also drop the stabilizers. Don't know or care what could go wrong,just know that it can't if there is no connection.

RE: Inflated hopes for EV P/U

EV or ICE, "fuel economy" ratings are often fudged numbers. Had a 2018 Camry ICE that came close to the EPA numbers. Traded it for a 2019 Highlander with a V6 rated for 21 city, 26 highway. Haven't seen either number yet; vehicle is the biggest gas pig I've had in some time. Just too many variables to take into account no matter the fuel source/propulsion method. I have never had a problem meeting posted figures, usually even surpassing them with any vehicle I've driven.

RE: Inflated hopes for EV P/U

Inflated hopes? Really? Did you really expect this technology to fly out of the gate fully mature and capable? I think that if your hopes were dashed it is you that needs improvement. No reasonable person expects full capabilities from the get go. Did any one ever dis the Model T because it couldn't tow 12k? I doubt it.But yet its great great grandchild the F 150 can. Come back in 108 years and state your case!

RE: 2021 Grand Cherokee?

You cannot go by a website,promotional materials, commercials, or even the owners manual. You need to look at the particular vehicle by VIN to see the actual capabilities,and installed equipment.

RE: Retirement

I didn’t retire at 52.... no regrets. Now 58 and still not retired .... still no regrets. I’m waiting for a worthwhile reason to retire. Some work to live, some live to work. Thank the Lord I am the former!

RE: Avoid Silverton Colorado

How much are yo willing to bet that this action was taken due to the actions of the OHV community and their disrespect for traffic laws.

RE: Coffee Survey

I buy green beans of different varieties and roast it myself. an hour a week roasting keeps us happy about 2 lbs. There is no way I do a hundred pounds. I buy 20 lbs at a time. One I use a lot is Indian Monsooned Malabar. Finicky to roast, does nothing then jumps from first to second in a heart beat. Kind of an earthy smokey tone too it. Really good.

RE: New camper towing

Just purchased a 2013 Flagstaff 205 pop-up and would like to tow with my Chevy Traverse that didn’t come with tow pkg. I want to make sure I can tow the pop-up before I get a hitch added. Owners manual says towing capacity is 2000 and camper dry weight is 1900. I’m sure it’s not that simple and was hoping some experienced campers could advise? Tina I am hating to say this,but you are under vehicled. I see no way to make that combination work if your numbers are correct. Open your drivers door, there will be a sticker, either on the door it self or the sill. It will say something to the effect of "Weight of all cargo and passengers shall not exceed xxxx" And that means everything, from your cooler to spanky to the chicken nuggets under the seat. Your empty trailer will be putting a bit over two hundred pounds of weight on your hitch before batteries and propane. I know I am just some guy on the interwebs,but I would not operate that combination.

RE: Retirement

Retired at 56, took SS at 62. first couple of years I took day work and a couple partime jobs. Decided that I did not want commitment and a schedule, since then I putter around, travel, play with the grandkids,nap,and whatever else I feel like doing. I have proudly enjoyed being a taker for the last 7 years,and I hope to take much more in the next 20 years.

RE: TV tire life

Thanks for the tips.. I've been planning to get new tires at 4wheelonline to tow an RV. I'm thinking if Nitto Ridge Grappler will do the trick. But it would be great to see more ideas and suggestions with regards to towing from you guys. Starting your own threadin beginning RV would be the best way for you to have your questions answered.
pitch 05/17/21 06:13am Tow Vehicles

Your right that is a little different scenario. I'm more or less OK with the SRW for what you are proposing however 18K combined becomes a lot of weight for the SRW to stop....Especially a panic stop. In the end the main reason to get a dually is for the additional braking power. Not trying to be difficult, Where is the extra brake power? Brakes are the same?

RE: Running Inverter Generator Safely From Pickup

First off I think I am definitely going to get a second (and maybe third) CO alarm in addition to the one that is built into my trailer. I run our Hondas regularly from the bed of my truck. I drop the tail gate start the generators,spin them so the exhaust faces out. The tonneau cover stays in place one fold open, depending on expected weather,if rain is expected I leave it flat. I have a trifold. I have set my extended run tank on top of the cover. This is for overnites only so I normally do not unhook the trailer. Once set up in our spot the generators sit on a piece of plywood on the ground. By spin them out do you mean blowing perpendicular to the truck as in not towards the hitch and not towards the cab?. Say wut? Generator won't melt if it gets wet. Why on earth would you direct the exhaust back into the enclosed truck bed making the bed all stinky and hot? Do you think it's going to trap the exhaust and keep it from getting out? Point generator exhaust away from the truck bed and if you smell exhaust in the camper, it's not working, get a longer extension cord. I felt this wasn't a good idea but read about others doing this so just wanted to ask. In regards to the rain I have read about people using it exposed to the rain and others covering it up so not sure what the exact protocol is. Yes face too face
