RE: Fed Cuts Rates: Will RV Rates Follow?

RE: Fed Cuts Rates: Will RV Rates Follow?

If stock market drops then for sure those who are Short Sellers win. The money doesnt leave, someone has it somewhere. The stock market is a valuation of the worth of the sum of the stocks, not the sum of the money invested. Stocks can go to zero, but the money is always the same value and it just changes hands. If you buy Apple stock, then literally Apple get that cash money, on that day or that second the stock represents that same cash amount, but then stocks go up or down and become worth more cash or less cash, but Apple still has the cash you initially bought the stock with, that cash does not change. Who loses? The ones with stock that lose value and who sell that stock at a lower value. You only gain or lose when you go to sell the stock, not during ownership. Very few understand what the fed is so I wont attempt more there.. Enjoy the new RV and enjoy our great country! I am speechless.......

RE: Fed Cuts Rates: Will RV Rates Follow?

The fed loans money to the banks who loan it to your local banks who loan it to you at interest. At low interest there is no profit to make loans to individuals who may or may not pay it back. Too low rate and the banks look for other investments to get a return on. Their job is not to make loans, it is to make money. This is why the stock market (prior the virus) was going so high - banks saw more return on stocks (even with the risk) than in making loans. The stock market is a dumb metric to measure the economy, but it is how "they" have always measured it, even for the last administration, so "he" is keeping and playing by the same rules of measure, and winning, lol. The stock market does not lose money, the money stays in the market, but it changes hands. Investors may lose money, but someone else makes money, the sum total is always the same. If you give me money for my stock and then my stock value goes to zero then I still have your money, but since the stock you bought from me is now valued at zero, then I owe you zero. I made, you lost. If that stock you bought from me doubles, then you can make double when you sell it, but I do not owe you double, I just owe you the original stock certificate, someone else may buy your stock, but not me, I have your money. You can get another person's money by selling at a profit or at a loss. We do not need a privately owned international central bank to tell us what the interest rates should be. Pure stupidity on America's part. If you know what to listen for you hear Trump talk about removing the fed for good and returning the power back to our country. You will hear him constantly harp on the fed all the time, saying they are doing it wrong, and hurting the country. He does this so when the time comes the citizens have heard a lot about how bad the fed is and when T goes to remove them the citizens are mentally prepared. The prez always tells us what his plan is, but in a more coded way, he gives hints all the time, and sends messages to our enemies in plain sight. Sometimes he says kooky things but to the intended target audience is very pointed and direct and not the least bit kooky .Dont agree or disagree with this, just put it on the shelf and when you hear something run it through this filter and see what drops out. Huh? If a stock suddenly becomes worthless who makes money?

RE: Graveside Boondocking?

In the 1970s after I finished my time in the Army I wandered around on my motorcycle. Small town cemeterys provided a clean, quiet place to camp for the night. It seemed like every one had a giant old oak or maple tree for shade and shelter. I was absolutely carefree...

RE: It is no wonder

No wonder the forum has so few posts. Every time you want to post something. You have to prove you are alive. I'm betting many just find that some what off putting, and not worth the hassle.. BTW. Y'all can move this any where you want. Well, ARE you alive?

RE: Fresh water on I29 heading south from North Dakota?

Not sure if this is what you want but a couple of years ago we used camping world to fill up our fresh tank and empty the grey and black tanks, as we had a good Sam club card Great idea! Many thanks.

Fresh water on I29 heading south from North Dakota?

RE: Protection Plans for new Entegra Odyssey 24b

None of these plans are worth the money.

RE: dumping tanks

I have a small creek on my property. It's a good place to empty the tanks.

RE: Uncomfortable Sofa

I put a few strips of wood in the bottom of my rv sofa. I also used upgraded foam from an auto upholstery shop and what a difference. All for just a few dollars....

RE: True Truck Payload

Everyone knows that salesemen are trustworthy and give accurate information. You're safe to ignore the manufacturer's weight rating and go by what the salesman says. Better yet take the advice of a complete stranger on the internet who says it's OK to overload the truck.

RE: Winterization

This is the first year I'm going to use compressed air to winterize.I would like to know how long to leave the taps open to make sure there is no water left.thank you I keep the air going until the water stops flowing. It doesn't take long...Maybe 15 minutes. I use about 35lbs and first open the hot water valves one at a time and then the cold water and toilet. I have the pump running during this procedure. I then put in antifreeze. Maybe the antifreeze is overkill but one morning last February I let the Labrador out to whiz and it was minus 41.

RE: Looking for a new class C

I'm trying to decide between Jayco Grey Hawk, and Entraga. Any comments or advice will be appreciated Same thing. Entegra has fancier trim but otherwise they are the same. Analogous to Chevy/GMC.

Valve extenders safe?

I have to remove the wheel simulators to reach the inside dually valve stems. Is there a way to check the inflation and get air to these tires without the hassle of removing the simulators?

RE: Mountain Towing

The wife and I are about to purchase our first camper. Most likely a 5th wheel. A friend mentioned, since we will be towing in the mountains some, to stay small for weight and maneuverability. Considering the steep grades is a 3/4 ton necessary even for something as light as light as +/-7200lbs? Any and all opinions on towing in the mountains would be appreciated. Not opposed to a 3/4 if we have to but almost certainly not going the diesel route. Thanks For a 7200lb trailer a 3/4 is an imperative under any circumstances. I misread Grayswain's post. What I stated is incorrect. Apologies to all.
