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

Did someone mention demand issue? Tesla website order page now lists 6 to 10 weeks delivery for US market. Where did all T&P's stashed vehicles go?

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

Not what the article says. Blank screens and fail to charge is listed extreme result. No mention of locking up, skidding off the road, rolling over and self igniting the battery. In fact there is no mention of even one example....

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

Opinion...my point of view is that a guy who 'personally' reaped tens to hundreds millions from his sale of PayPal and personally listed as worth north of $23 BILLION says he (yes, grocery/rent/etc money) has a cash flow issue and is illiquid... And his corporations a ditto in cash flow issues and may not be profitable says he shouldn't be running that corporation using other peoples money... He can burn his personal money as that is his own...but...when his corporation has IPO'd and gone through several public bond issues...he is burning other peoples money...albeit fan base who are gambling on his business acumen..This is exactly how much of America was built... using OPM. It is a free country. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Roads and Routes would have been a better sub forum. How did you drop into help on posting?

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

Not personal at all. Endemic in US culture. JMHO. I did not direct my comment at anyone. Here is a graph to keep it real: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/5f/US_Electricity_by_type.png/1920px-US_Electricity_by_type.png width=800 Note growth has been normal and ordinary since 1949 to 2005 and then it just stopped. Increased by a factor of 10x. We only need 0.2 for EVs. Surely we can start moving ahead again as needed when needed for the EV parade.

RE: Is this forum going to get fixed???

Error messages up the wazoo. Can’t read post and cant reply to posts. This has been going on for months. What say you moderators, what’s the status? ThanksAll this and still tons better than the first couple years. Back then we had near constant inability to get into a thread with daily outages lasting a few hours at a time. Sometimes days. Fixed? Probably never. Patched periodically is more the norm. Just take it for what it is.

RE: Modern Food?

If the food is so poor, how do we explain our fat asses? I think most of you just resent having to pay for restaurants.Most plates serve 3x what you need. We feast virtually every day.

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

Just find a grid expansion graph from the 1940s to current and today's work will seem rather inconsequential. With all the modern technology today the extra 20% should be relatively simple. How on earth did the transcontinental rail get built with hand tools and dynamite even while we fought the civil war. What a bunch of wussies we have today.

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

In the old days we would call that a hand job and charge a bit extra. Actually had to use the creeper or just crawl under. Today there are plenty of fast lubes to drive over the pit. No lift needed as long as the headroom is good. But honestly I would just top it off and keep going. Hiway miles are easy on the oil.

RE: Electrical Question

Get out your voltmeter and post the battery voltage.

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

whatever type you purchase please follow the quiet hour rules. We boondock primarily and it is getting old to listen to genny's being run 24/7.especially annoying when you know the generator is running into the otherwise quiet evening just to watch a movie. Just as easy to have a small inverter. If recharging batteries verify your converter is charging at 14.2+ volts to minimize run time. Ryobi makes a small and reasonably quiet propane generator (700 watts) if that is enough and you prefer to avoid storage and carburetor issues along with general gasoline issues.

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

Lead Tesla Semi engineer quits. Rut row 8.1. The lead engineer for the Semi project quit Tesla. :E Can any fan boi tell me why the lead engineer for the Semi project would quit right before it starts hauling freight down the road? 8.1, I see you waving your hand in the back of the room. Please answer this question! You have the floor!The link you posted actually answers the question! :R BTW how long was he at Tesla? Appears 2.6 to 4.3 years retention (only) is pretty normal for these companies. This is how long employees typically stay at Tesla, Apple, Facebook, Cisco, Nvidia, Oracle and more

RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

Hopefully the NPS will retain perpetual naming rights and not have a repeat of the Yosemite fiasco. I am OK with no discounts during peak season. In fact the fees currently for weekends could probably be doubled during peak season. Someone has to pay and best to be the users.

RE: How cold can you go?

Guys, my question was strictly related to whether the pipes and tanks would survive if we camped with water. There are plenty of campgrounds open in NY at that time and I've backpacked into the teens at night, so a heated and insulated (as wimpy as the insulation might be) will be dreamy. Thanks for the suggestions. We will keep an eye on the weather and see what it looks like when we get closer. If it appears it might be a dicey temperature then we'll plan on dry camping with jugs of water like the tent and 1980's Jayco popup days.Most RV water systems are fine down to about 25F overnight while in use. Dump late in the afternoon and don't force the valves open. Keep a close eye on your propane level and what time the propane store closes for the night.

RE: Modern Food?

I believe the poor food is also a product of speed production to both satisfy impatient customers and to turn the tables over faster. Too much frozen food and microwaves. I remember going out used to be an event that was an hour or more. Now it is serve in 10 minutes and gone in 20. Maybe 30 max.

RE: Solar or generator for older camper?

Thanks pnichols, I appreciate the info. Do you have any info on the EX700? There was one on Craigslist other day for a good price and I missed it.Also consider a Ryobi 700 watt propane generator if you are OK with small. None are silent like solar.

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

Also, I have decided that I want an inverter generator as opposed to a conventional generator as I plan on using it with sensitive electronics and also want it to be as quiet as possible. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, folks!That is all you plan to run? I recommend 200/300 watts solar and a small maybe 300 watts sine wave inverter. Maybe an extra battery.

RE: Wiring neutral/ground when splitting panel for MultiPlus?

Yes. This is same as we discussed earlier. Single phase 120v will feed L1 & L2 and close the relay for normal operation on 30 amp service. Thanks Time2roll. Let me follow up on something you said earlier: "I believe Neutral needs to be switched during inverter operation to prevent back feeding" How does that relate to the above diagram from Victron? Do you think an extra transfer switch needs to be added, or do you think the Multiplus will safely handle it on its own?NO. My original comment was a reply on your suggestion to have two neutrals with one of the neutrals not going through the inverter. As shown in the diagram the single neutral goes through the inverter and all is good and properly switched.

RE: How cold can you go?

I have been down -10F with minimal issues. Open belly with added Ultra Heat tank pads and circulating hot water. Had 30 amp utility power. Most RVs are fine down to at least 25 while in use.
