9 pages now and still no one except Reisender who is singing the praises of EV towing and no one even has an EV truck or tow rig.
My point was clearly made….
Sorry I did not get that from the title or the OP.

Virtually no EV trucks or EVs with a high enough tow rating are available. Give it another couple years.

I gather from another thread that OP has sold his RV and moved on. I'm sure someone else will step up to perpetuate the EV panic.

How is simply asking a question about who owns an EV akin to perpetuating a panic?

Seemed a logical discussion to me given the myriad of chestpoumders that appear in various threads.

Never owned one, but drove a shuttle car in an underground coal mine off and on for several years to pay my way through college. Probably a couple of thousand hours of total time. Five tons of coal at a time, shore powered, with a battery back up.

Anyone else got a couple of thousand hours driving an EV? Good technology, low fire danger, 4 wheel steering, and just flip yourself around to go the other way. Any other miners? It would be easy to beat my time. What do you want to know?

I put down a deposit on a Volvo XC60 plug in hybrid. Best of both worlds - at least with current tech. Over 400 hp and a powerful gas engine.
