RE: Park Recommendations in the Rio Grande Valley

Have a question about your park does it seem well managed? It is really not "My" park, I have stayed at others. Not particularly bad or good. Much cheaper than the big fancy parks, if that matters. I admit that I am not familiar with the woodworking shop except to know there is one and where it is located. I can find occasional errors in the newsletters, but that is not very important to me. Good location in the middle of a dozen weekly dances. (When there is no pandemic).

RE: Park Recommendations in the Rio Grande Valley

Doe's anyone know of a RV park in the Rio Grande Valley that has both an indoor pool and a woodworking shop? Alamo Rec-Veh in Alamo, Texas has both along with three RC race car tracks, a lake, and reasonable rent.

RE: Having Fun in the Sun!

There must be a lot of people who have been waiting for a South Texas cool down. Got a call from a friend in Missouri who was happy that we might get some frost this weekend. (It was 12 F there). Texas is a great bargain for the temperature per dollar spent. Been above normal most of the Winter with many Air conditioner afternoons.

RE: Puma trailers. Any good?

I had a 25 foot Puma travel trailer and I would give it a 4 out of 10 in a field of 5's. Typical entry level unit, maybe a little below average.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

We can all hope that the 1930's come around again with coal fired freight trains and all that goes with it. Or, we can hope and plan for a better future. Foot draggers are foot draggers, no matter the generation. They never win.

8-track is the only way to listen to music. It will be around forever, just like $0.23/gallon gasoline.

Glad the Negative Neds are not in charge of our progress. What if they discovered a way to charge wirelessly? Machinery could be used and charged at the same time. Oops! You mean we can already do that with our cell phones? What will they think of next? One thing for sure, it will not be Ned's invention.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

Fact: I'm an advocate of clean air but rationality trumps pipe dreams everytime, petroleum and it's major impact on the economy is here to stay. And dinosaurs are dying every day to create future supplies of oil. Not. We will run out in the future. It will get more expensive along the way. We are in a temporary glut which is fooling people into thinking it will last forever. We will choose oil over fish and animals to keep the tap on, but there is a finite amount of oil.

Lots of time wasted talking about EV's here on a rv forum. Yup. Quit thinking about the future.

Don't insulate your homes either. The forest will provide "free" fuel forever. Until it doesn't.

RE: Jay Feather 22RB Alternatives

The Jayco 212QB has a nice layout and dry weight of 4,400 pounds. Mine is 5,400 loaded but with only 5 gallons of fresh water.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

I don't think we will ever stop burning all hydrocarbons. Although much could eventually stop. We are still picking the low hanging fruit. Agreed, let future generations figure out where it all went. Cheap energy is good for us now. It will last forever. (Might want to look up the definition of "finite")

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

Pick a year. 2040, 2060, 2080. At some time oil will become scarce and expensive. Won't affect those on here knocking renewable energy now but will matter to their grandchildren and future generations. Denial will not change the outcome.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

Oil has a multitude of uses. Burning it up to go to Walmart five miles away may not be the best use. I can take my trash to the dumpster with my pickup, my golf cart, or walk. Which is the best use of oil? Farm ground has a multitude of uses. Building strip malls and parking lots may not be the best use.

RE: Harbor Freight Tailgator generator review

The Tailgator is a fun little generator that doesn't mind bouncing around in the back of a pickup. No oil changes. Will run a nice sized battery charger. Lightweight. Cheap. Did I mention Cheap?

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

What if-- ...snip.... What if our electronic infrastructure is disrupted by the sun (solar storm) or from an attack from an enemy (China/Russia/North Korea/Iran)? No electricity, no electronic infrastructure, no power to recharge our battery powered devices/vehicles. ....snip........ You are disregarding that such a shutdown would knock out all fueling stations of all kinds. Too horrible to imagine, but using fossil fuels is not going to help. Folks with guns would be coming after our five gallon fuel cans.

We don't need no stinking electric vehicles, airplanes, smartphones, or Internet. Backward Ho!

Whale oil lamps will be around forever. Nothing cheaper or more reliable on the horizon. (1892)

RE: Towing capacity vs max cargo weight rating

4) (sniped).. "Front and rear GAWRs will, in all cases, sum to a number equal to or greater than the GVWR for the particular vehicle".. (sniped). What Ford is saying is if they wanted they could sum the axle rating for the trucks GVWR. Now anyone can guess why they do or don't do so. What's there to guess? It is reasonable to assume that things like engine, transmission, brakes, or even steering could result in a Gross rating less than the sum of two of the components. It "might" be the the sum of the axles but is often less. What Ford is saying is that the GVWR is the rating of "all" components taken together. If only rawr matters they could simply build a fleet of F-150's with ten different rear axles to handle any conceivable load.

Ever notice how people advocate for terminating a thread, as long as they get the last word?
