RE: Fuel Costs

It's only going to get worse, when we are held hostage by foreign oil. I don't see anything political in this post, so we'll see how long it lasts.The US has been a net exporter since November 2019. https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/images/2020.02.06/main.svg width=450

RE: Federal Mask mandate

And much of the time when reporting the news, they are ALL bending the truth to fit the agenda... either Right OR LeftThe agenda has always been ratings and profits. True, false, right, left, center, is just the method to get the ratings up.

If it turns out that bad the gears can be changed.

RE: Federal Mask mandate

All BS - not enforcable.Oh it has already been under strict enforcement for a year now. Many have paid the ultimate price. The mask is for you to avoid enforcement along with the people you interact with. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

RE: Build my TV

Build? Get something built a few years ago. Or if you must custom order pick a color that semi matches the trailer ;)

RE: Truck Registration Weight

In Nevada at least, that would cost a bundle. If I remember correctly my 17 year old Dodge is registered @ somewhere around 12,000 lbs and I'm still paying ~ $300 a year for registration. Price goes way up for every 1000 lb! A new truck registered for 14k would no doubt cost $1000 a year or more...my 5 year old F150 is $500 a year!My 20 year old F150 in CA is $240 + smog every other year for another $60. This includes a weight fee of $80

RE: Building a power pack. Need a battery recommendation. T

It actually started the fridge but didn't like it...which is fine as we won't use it for that. Consider heavier copper on the 12v connection to improve surge performance. #6 wire should be plenty, keep it short and neat.

RE: Calling on Solar Techies

Get the MPPT. 40 amps should serve you well. Generally you can overdrive an MPPT and it will just self limit to the rated 40 amps. You could put 600-800 watts of panels up and still produce 40 amps in less than ideal conditions. Just don't put too many panels in series that would put the controller over the rated Vmax.

RE: Federal Mask mandate

I've read several articles and cant find any out for folks boondocking. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bidens-executive-order-mask-wearing-federal-land Again city folks think everyone lives in an urban cubicle. One size fits all I guess. Hopefully the rangers out there have better sense than the DC insiders.So what is your point? Do what you have to do.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

You could make a platform of wood to place the bottle jack up to the frame. You will need to lift the frame much more and if all is not square could be a safety issue. Nothing will bend if you jack on the u-bolt and you just need to raise the tire one Inch. Practice at home and see what works for you while you are servicing the bearings. Your jack in the tow vehicle might even work fine.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

For a single tire I jack under the U-bolt near the spindle. (bottle jack) For a frame lift I cut and stack 2x4 lumber to crib the gap. (floor jack) There are also some tire ramps made to run up the good tire to change the bad.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Engine oil heater/block heater is most important so that you can actually get the engine started. As soon as the engine is running smooth you can pull away and drive moderately to warm up the rest.

I grew up on a dairy farm. In the summer time we ran many hardware store garden hoses to several different areas watering livestock and chickens. We often drank from those hoses and never gave a thought about what the hose was made of. Now 50-60 years latter it's hard to find a hose that does not put a bad taste in the water when hooked to an rv. full time.Makes a big difference if the water is flowing all day and you take a sip vs. if the water is stranded in the hose for an extended period. Sure I drank from a flowing hose as a kid. Always let it flow cold before I took first sip. You would never grab a hose from the garage and drink the stale water.

RE: Truck Registration Weight

Register it for 14K then go camping and enjoy the new truck+1 Either way better to be a bit long than short.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

You get a nice piece of yellow paper, with the charges listed as well as the court date. At the end of the court case, done over video link, you'll be told what the fines amount to. You may also be informed that you are no longer admissible for reentry to Canada. Chuckle, chuckle, indeed.If you stay the direct course but are delayed for mechanical trouble... keep your receipts and a daily log to show the authorities you did your best. Nobody is out to throw the book at the honest person doing their best.

RE: best propane hoses

I like the Cavagna brand as they have superior crimps.

If the zero g is coiled and connected... will it stay coiled as I turn on the water pressure? or does it flip out?

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

Not sure first matters all that much. Producing a compelling vehicle people want to buy instead of another gasser will make the market. And the market is plenty big for all to have a slice. Great to know there will be different trucks for the likes of different people. Competition is good.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

If you must use the ezlube... pump very slowly while the wheel is turning. I would just go. I don't like major maintenance right before a long trip.

RE: solar

Start with an energy audit. Decide how much reserve capacity you want. From that design the battery bank. Build a solar panel system that will recharge the battery bank.This is the proper way to go about it.I prefer to max out the solar and deal with the consequences. Solar is so inexpensive today there is no reason to aim for the minimum.
