RE: Looking for info on Insurance

Good Sam for 25 years , switched when I could not not get through their phone system . You can spend weeks trying to talk to a human .

RE: Anyone have an all elec. car

The truck stop in Perry Fl. is adding six charging ports over by the restaurant . I must assume many locations will be opening up charging sites . There are several TTs in Florida being pulled by Tesla s.

I am glad that I do not live in California !

My wife and I shoot 2 or 3 thousand pin nails a month in our craft business . My new shipment came with this warning " California - use of this product may cause reproductive harm ". Where do they think that I shoot them ?

Far wood on cold nites , on REALLY cold nites we burn Tars . Sometimes it will get down into 40 degrees .

That is what we call them in the backwoods of Florida , TARS . I just bought 4 new tars , was not a whole lot wrong with the old ones except . Last week I went out to check the air pressure and the two tars on the sunny side , both had OK pressure but you could spin the tire stems round and round . Never heard of that before , they were 5 year old Goodyear with 18 K miles . I figgered if I gotta dismount em I might as well put new shoes on . Man at Discount Tar in Tally said he had never seen that before .

RE: How old is too old?

I am 77 and we travel all the time . My 79 YO brother just turned in his drivers license , he went to sleep twice at red lights in one day . I would guess that we all will know when its time !

Electric bikes !!

Lets talk about your electric bikes and what you think about them ! We have had our fat tire , twenty inch , folding bikes for two weeks and have been riding them 8 to 12 miles per day . We pedal constantly just because it feels right although I assume you can go on battery twenty some miles . We maintain 14 MPH pretty easily and with more throttle we can get up to twenty ! Our brand " Ecotric Dolphin " , about $ 850 . We like to wander around small towns and some time have to park far away , out in the boondocks because of the length of our rig , we hope this will lead to more exploring and some trail riding . We tend to always pedal and use the battery when these 77 year olde legs get tired ! What kind have ya got , do ya use them as much as ya think ya would ?

RE: Helper springs or air bags?

The volume of air required in air bags is very , very small . I have used a manual bicycle pump to blow up my bags , takes less than 30 seconds . No need for an installed compressor system at hundreds of dollars . My neibor spent about $500 for his system and is so proud of it , only ran his truck payment up $ 16 per month for seven years !! I need the exercise and the five hundred dollars !

RE: domicile confused

Many people " Domicile " in states that they do not visit for years and years . We claimed domicile in Florida for thirteen years . Foreign service people , military ,travelers . Do ya need to prove anything , in Florida you do not . Go to any courthouse and file a " Proclamation Of Domicile ", you are done . But lets assume that you will want a drivers license and registration of autos , get one ! It is a separate action and they do not have a whole lot to do with domicile . Matter of fact why would you want a domicile , what you might want is a address for documents , forget domicile , get an address for all your needs . Do not confuse " domicile " with what you need/want !

RE: The Bowlus is Back

generator !

Guy on another post said that they tried to sell him a generator that ran on gasoline , he said he wanted one that ran on electric ! When the power went out couldn't he just plug it in ?

RE: Gain setting

The adjustment is something you will do many times as conditions change , low line voltage , corrosion on the multitude of connections in the hundred feet of electric wiring , wear on the brakes , load !

RE: Recycling engine heat for hot water tank

I had them on two boats . Really not worth the expense , lot cheaper to heat the water when ya need it . Huge potential for leaks , both into and out of fresh water and engine coolant . But that said , many marine engines do something similar for engine cooling , run sea water thru a heat exchanger to cool engine fresh water !

RE: Annuity Maturing...

I have found that investment advise is a lot better on lawnmower forums than RV forums .
