RE: What are your opinions on the new Ekko ?

If I was to order a new AWD Ekko, I'd insist before I closed the deal .... that the dealer check with Ford as how much larger diameter tires could be used on it and still clear the fender wells and front suspension components and, if blessed by the factory ... deliver my Ekko with those tires on it, including a spare tire of the larger size. That would be interesting to know but I expect dealer or Winnebago would have zero interest. Probably say "Thanks for stopping by, we'll just sell it to this next guy on the waiting list.";)

RE: A top to bottom look at green energy

Most of us enjoy lives much more comfortable, healthy and secure than those of our grandparents. Thank science. Think about who is promoting this current anti-science insanity and question their motives. Why is it so threatening to admit that there are folks who are smarter, better educated and have more understanding of these issues than a bunch of us sitting around the firepit? The debate over human caused climate change was over 10 years ago among legitimate scientists. The idea that corrective alternatives have to be cheaper than what we are doing now is absurd. We'll do what we have to, pay what we have to, or we'll be screwed worse than we already are.Y'all like the red? Shows I'm special too.:R

RE: Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

^^^That's pretty close to what I was thinking of. And wow, the Tiger looks great! Seems to be priced about half again what I was hoping for but who knows? Thanks, guys.

RE: Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

^^^That's the idea but probably 10' longer than I'd like!

RE: Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

I see them on E450, wondering if F450 exists. Thinking maybe better handling, engine placement, 4X4 etc. I'm thinking very small, closer to B size.

Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

Do these exist? Current models on truck rather than van chassis? The smaller the better as long as it has a toilet and holding tanks.;)Thanks!

RE: Value of Spare Tire and wheel

Lack of a factory provided spare is one of the most annoying nonsensical developments. During my B shopping I found the ProMaster based vans didn't come with a spare. No good options for adding one other than a hitch rack that interfered with the back door. I think the Transit vans may come with a spare but the Covid put an end to my shopping before I could verify that. Our new Prius doesn't have a spare. I've got a plug kit and a compressor and AAA but I still feel it's an unnecessary roll of the dice.

RE: Save Your Atwood Furnace

Good info, thanks for posting.

RE: Tow Haul Mode

Actually, what I have read is that with Tow/Haul engaged the alternator is programmed to keep providing a significant output rather than dropping down so much after it replaces the starting draw. This may not be true with all brands or years. I haven't verified if this is the case with my Ford, it's just something I read that I thought was interesting and a welcome feature. I have a little meter I can plug in to the 12V receptacle, maybe I'll investigate the next time I drive the truck.

RE: Tow Haul Mode

I think engaging tow/haul will also keep a good charge going to the trailer battery.

RE: And Texas Caves In

"If it's someone's time to go, I can't save them. Some people simply will die from this virus, like it or not. Everyone dies eventually, like it or not. However, the people who are most susceptible are still free to stay away from the rest of us (self-isolate) as we resume our own survival tasks." Since the Michigan rallies, I’m all for this because it looks like support for this mainly comes from a particular political bent, and if they want to race for the exit, have at it!We can only hope....

RE: Long arm of the law...

What's an "entitlement?" The 'free stuff' expected by some members of out society.Well heck, I decided to look it up for myself. Paint it anyway you want. Everyone knows which 'entitlement people' we are talking about. ;) Yep, y'all know to respond when they blow that dog whistle! Some folks just have to think their own "entitlement" is somehow more legit than the next guy's. Sad....

RE: And Texas Caves In

Epidemiologist: Coronavirus could be ‘exterminated’ if lockdowns were lifted Good read. And from an epidemiologist too.This guy's credentials don't compare favorably with Drs Fauci and Birx, FWIW. Those epidemiologists actually working on the pandemic have made it clear there is no evidence at this point to support the hopes of herd immunity. Also that's a crackpot website that makes no secret of it's bias. Let's check back in a couple of months and see which of the "experts" knew what they were talking about. My money's on Fauci and Birx.

RE: Long arm of the law...

What's an "entitlement?" The 'free stuff' expected by some members of out society.Well heck, I decided to look it up for myself. From the US Senate website, "entitlement - A Federal program or provision of law that requires payments to any person or unit of government that meets the eligibility criteria established by law. Entitlements constitute a binding obligation on the part of the Federal Government, and eligible recipients have legal recourse if the obligation is not fulfilled. Social Security and veterans' compensation and pensions are examples of entitlement programs." Hits close to home doesn't it? Social Security and Medicare are the largest.... Edit- I forgot to add that apparently 90% of "entitlement" dollars go to working families, the elderly and the disabled.

RE: Texas to reopen State Parks

I go to the store NO gloves. I keep my CC in a shirt pocket with nothing else. Once done shopping I touch the bottom of my door handle and truck unlocks. I open back door and place goods inside. Close door and open drivers door and pump hand sanitizer into my hands BEFORE touching anything else. Once home I bring everything inside to one counter. I then remove all my clothes and place in washing machine. I also place cc with items to be cleaned and use sanitizer on it. I put produce away and frozen goods. I then take wipes to everything else setting them in a clean area one at a time. Now I clean surface those goods were on and thoroughly clean my hands. Now I put away those items. When removing produce I place in sink and thoroughly wash and clean hands and surfaces again. I also wipe my door handles on truck and RV that I touched so when all done I say "BACK TO SAFE ZONE AGAIN" So gloves do no good IMHO. Leaving gloves on you are contaminating everything you touch inside the vehicle along with everything you touch, FALSE sense of security!!! This seems like a good system and is very similar to what I do, with the exception that I order the groceries online and they bring them out to my car. If I went in a store I might wear gloves to help remind me not to touch my eyes or face, then discard them when I got back to the car.

RE: And Texas Caves In

Budget shortfalls = Lets raise taxes!!! Just wait. Maybe they can reverse the damage done with their "tax relief" that happened a year ago. I'll give up the pittance if the rich return the trillion. Funny how the $1.5 trillion given to the richest individuals and corporations meant the economy was going to ZOOM! Now, give $2trillion to the other 99% and we are bankrupting the economy for generations to come.Not to mention that way less than half of the current $2 trillion will ever come near the 99%. Sad that folks are bamboozled into directing their resentment toward some other poor sap making minimum wage or getting by on unemployment.

RE: And Texas Caves In

Good news it's April and the virus should be forgotten about.It was over by Easter, right? I don't know why we are still screwing around at home two weeks later. Let's get out and paarr-teee!!!

RE: Long arm of the law...

If the “Mother Earth” logic is true, then “Mother Earth” will correct itself through famine, flood, fire, or whatever other cataclysmic event is required to reduce the population to such a point that we all reset and begin again. Maybe we are in the midst of just such a correction? I applaud pnichols for his unselfish life choices. I hope that all who chose large families have produced at least one teacher, scientist, farmer or health care worker to mitigate the damage. ;)
