RE: wood weight

Are you really sure you want a full face cord? An average seasoned cord of hardwood weighs more than 2 tons!! Unstacked it will take up to 200 cubic feet in space. An 8 ft. pick up truck would have to pile the wood uniformly at 5 feet tall to fit an ustacked cord. The average pick up truck can only haul 1/2 a cord of firewood at a time.

RE: Old Trailer? suggested I post this here?

I concur with the other posts. Even if you manage to find a manual it probably won't help you all that much.

RE: Trekking poles

Don't forget good hiking shoes. Cheap hiking shoes/boots will kill your feet.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Are any electric vehicles currently profitable for the manufacturer? Simple answer..... NO. For the most part not yet. As EVs become more common and there are more models available (platform sharing) then they will start to see the profits. Hi, The simple answer is wrong. The Nissan Leaf makes money, and has since 2014. Link please. I think that it's profitable now, but not in the beginning. Keeping in mind that Carlos Ghosn is going to prison and anything he said about the company is suspect at best. What the Leaf did do is boost their CAFE numbers which helps sell cars and boosts overall profit.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Best part, less stopping for pocket-busting fill ups. Less expensive, probably. Got a line on low cost or free electricity? Yosemite can just deal with the pocket busting electric bills instead. And don't forget the fuel tax / road tax shift that will be coming once EV's reach a high enough percentage of what is on the highway. Guess what happens to the cost of electricity when demand increases and supply decreases? Less expensive? ROFLMAO. I'm the one who's laughing now! Evidently you haven't kept up with the technology and how it works (Google is your friend), or really thought any of this through. It's really not expensive at all to recharge electric vehicles. Not to mention that most of us are already paying for it at most CGs. People are happy to pay extra for running their AC at some CGs, so even if they want a couple extra bucks a night to recharge a vehicle battery it's still far cheaper than gas. Yes, at some point they are going to have to shift the tax burden. Half a dozen of one, six of another. Roads aren't free. We're going to pay for it no matter what motive power is used for vehicles.

RE: Getting very frustrated with this site!

I had so much trouble with timeouts that I switched to probably a year ago. For the past few months that's been horrible too. I'm under and it's working just fine. I think they are letting it fall apart. One day it just won't be accessible and that will be the end. Also they used to show anywhere from 5-8 pages of recent posts. Now only 2 or 3. Even though people are still replying to posts it's made to look like it's not as busy as it used to be. Purposely discouraging posting.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

Interesting responses. There is a bit of science behind why water doesn't completely freeze even when it gets into the teens at night. Those who use air only are mostly in warmer places that don't get deep freezes for days, or even weeks at a time. Anyone living in the northern states or Canada knows what I'm talking about. In SE WI we had days of -20 over the winter. Not the wind chill, the actual temperature. With day time highs of -10. The issue I've seen, and have had myself, is getting the water out of all the valves and faucets. Even a small amount of water in a valve can cause cracks. I had this happen in a previous trailer. I failed to open one of water heater bypass valves and allow pink stuff through. The next spring I had a leak.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Best part, less stopping for pocket-busting fill ups. Less expensive, probably. Less stops? Not until they get to the point where range while towing is extended. Towing a box still uses more energy whether it's an ICE engine or electric. I do see electric PUs as being viable to towing a travel trailer. I just think it's going to be another 5+ years before it's practical.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

Not too many as hep as I am.Sorry, but using "hep" instead of "hip" puts you waaaay into the non-hip group. Most of the "hip" folk will figure you simply can't spell. :) You old hep cat you. Hep, and hip. There's two words most people under 50 have never heard. The reason most RVers are white is because 90% of the population is white. Wow. Your facts are a bit old. From 1950. Google is your friend.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

I know lots of people of many different races. Some acquaintances, and a lot of friends of varied cultures and colors. I don't know the reasons or if any of it has to do with culture, but aside from Hispanics and whites, the reaction I get from most other people is "why would I want to do that"? I even get that reaction from most white and Hispanic friends of ours. I do know one black man I used to work with that loves camping, in a tent. And fishing. He's retired now and has been traveling a lot, around the world. He had no desire for an RV, and trust me this guy can afford anything he wants. Regarding KOA being involved in these discussions, maybe they are trying to boost their credibility after this incident.
