Did you check the outside outlet?

RE: What do you think about this set up?

Quite a few years ago I had a very similar set up with a Chevy Tahoe, 350 CI engine and 3:42 gears. I did tow a 19' Wilderness and did two things. Ran out of power in the hills and burned up the rear diff. You will find out it is driving you and you are not driving it at the end of the day. The gearing is not right for the load you want to tow in my opinion. CurlyWhat does a "burned up differential" mean? It either turns or it doesn't,there is nothing in there to burn up. Now if you burned up a transmission that would make sense.

RE: Can I rent your RV?

Mines for rent, about $5K per day with a 1 week minimum. Actually, everything I own can be yours if the price is right.

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

It had nothing to do with me - it was all about the bull. But carry on, You undoubtedly got your boots on. You’re still stopping, you have no other choice, regardless of what kind of gilded frame you want to put around it.

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

We don’t stop to charge, we just charge while we are stopped. That’s bull, try doing a 600 mile trip sometime without stopping and see what happens. Your stopping one way or the other and there is no other choice. I stop when I want to, your stopping cause you have to, and you have to have special amenities to boot.

RE: Generator Repair

Turn the mixture screw all the way in then back it out 1 - 1/2 turns. Then dump out the old gas and put fresh gas in it; including draining the carb. Little shot of ether may help get it running.

RE: Great Tow Capacity - Bad Payload Capacity... Increase PL?

Your problem is tongue weight vs. pin weight. For any given weight trailer, the tongue weight of a TT will be approx. half the pin weight of a 5 er. So tell me again why do you want a 5er - so you can buy a new truck?

RE: New truck pricing

So... is there any negotiating when you order a truck? Sure there is a negotiation, they ask you how much over sticker you’re willing to pay.

RE: New truck pricing

Right now the demand is way high and so are prices; and prices continue to rise. Yes one day you may be able to get a better deal (or not) - that day is not today. Some day prices may go down, but it could be 6 months, a year, 5 years, who knows when. So the question is do you want to bet those trucks sitting waiting for chips where built on speculation that is higher then the demand? The reality today is they’re sold before they can get them off the delivery truck. I’d bet that trend will continue. YOMV.

RE: Speed limits

"but as you increase speed you also need more distance to give enough time to react" My statement does exactly that! Faster you drive there will be more distance between you. Two seconds at 90 the distance between will be greater than at 55. I stand by Mr Purvis' drivers ed recommendations many years later. Exactly...I knew someone would question this, not thinking it through! I drove to drivers ed, but was not old enough to have a license yet. D's ed was fun, and I did learn from the experience. JerryWhen I took Driver Ed if any of the instructors caught you driving to Driver Ed, you automatically failed and had to wait a year to take it again. Many of us grew up on farms and had been driving big equipment and trucks for years before we were old enough to get a license.

RE: Speed limits

Asking for a Friend - If I go through the same driver training course cops do can I now drive 10 over without getting a ticket? I"d have the same advanced training they had.

RE: Speed limits

While there may be no evidence that differential speed causes accidents, there is certainly empirical evidence that the greater the differential speed, the greater the potential for having accidents and the greater the severity of the accidents. Hence there is a reason why there is a minimum speed limit on freeways and why you can't drive your moped on them.

RE: Travel trailer battery not charging

So when your trailer is plugged into shore power, and the battery disconnect in the on position, what voltage do you get when you connect your volt meter to the two terminals of the battery

RE: New F-150 Electric P/U

OKAY,Thanks all of you posters. I will immediately write Ford and tell them that the experts on RV net have proven beyond any doubt that their electric truck program is just totally not feasible. I will refer them to this thread and I am sure that they will discontinue this un American immediately. Thank all of you for saving Ford and its investors from an catastrophic failure and probable bankruptcy! True Americans one and all!Save yourself the postage stamp. I'm pretty sure Ford is smart enough to know the average RV'er isn't their targeted market and that most the people that buy a pickup truck don't tow RV's with them.

RE: Thoughts on a weird/unique way to empty holding tanks.

Ahh - yes, I'm the problem; you on the other hand are doing everything right. Does that about sum it up correctly?
