RE: Gas 11 years ago from a Forum memeber

"So.. why you bellyaching about the price of gas?" Because I don't buy bottled water?

RE: Dino juice v Electrons....

Generalissimo Franco is still dead.... Is this some weird inference like Yosemite like to toss out there to sound like he's really in the top 2% of the IQ chart like he claims? (PS, mods you can't delete this...ole YS1 made the claim, not Ha! It's an allusion to an old SNL running joke. Used here instead of the beating a dead horse emoji. Just establishes I'm old, not smart!:WCan't believe it had to be explained, these people need to get out more. :) And segued very well from the not ready for prime time reference.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

Okay, I'm confused, is this about politics, or EV vs ICE up a hill? I mean I've seen thread drift, but this has gone waaaaaaaaaaaay beyond that.

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

Unless you spend your time in RV parks that provide refills on site you have to find a place that refills portable tanks. 20# tanks have the added benefit of being able to trade them in just about anywhere nowadays even though they don't fill them all the way.Good point, then you're trading 30# tanks for 15# tanks. :)

RE: UH-Oh! Akin Cancer

I've had the Mohs procedure a few times, no biggie. They cut out some of it, check the surrounding area immediately, and remove it all, with frequent checks to make sure they get it all. Melanoma is the bad boy, it can metastasize while the small cell skin cancer rarely does.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

How long has that "prototype" semi been around. Seems like so long, it's now old technology. :) But still no production types.

RE: Dino juice v Electrons....

Telling the truth about the ability of EV's as towing vehicles is EV bashing? They aren't ready for prime time towing. Live with it.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

But, then again, with no trucks, you don't need 'em. :) But I guess this is one of those "Hope springs eternal" moments. :)

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Kind of putting the cart before the horse? Got chargers, but don't got semis to use them? Ah well, maybe someday.

RE: Recommendation for New or Used Bumper Pull Toy Hauler

Do you have your heart set on a bumper pull? The reason I ask is that bumper pull toyhaulers can be a pain to pull sometimes, more so than a fifth wheel. Getting the tongue weight right on a toyhauler seems to an issue. This is JMO of course, not based on actual usage, I could be dead wrong.

RE: Fuel cost in your area

Damifino, I just put fuel in when it needs it.

RE: Tight turn across narrow culvert?

Unless you plan on putting the trailer in there and never moving it again, you'll need a relatively easy way in and out. I agree with just bite the bullet and put in a wide enough culvert make it do-able. It would probably cost less than trying to get the trailer out of the ditch and repaired. :)

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

We use very little Propane, current tank in use was opened in 2019 and still has gas. We have a Residential Fridge and an Induction Cook Top, so only Propane appliances are the Furnace and Hot Water Heater. Wintering in Central Florida for the cool weather we use the Electric Fireplace Heater and Heat Pump on both AC. So filling and lifting our 40 Lb tanks isn't very offen.A pretty informative post, but not really germane to the thread title, and content. :) I don't really know of any way to get them into the spot short of horsing them up there. Maybe some kind of hydraulic lift that they can be slid off and into the spot?

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

"In my opinion, we have as a country, gotten meaner and more tribal then anytime I can recall. Pretty sad." I beg to disagree, it's just reported more often, and in greater detail than it has been in the past. Many things simply didn't get told in the past, now it is much tougher to hide things we would rather simply not see. As far as more tribal, consider the KKK from around the turn of the century, the Black Panthers from 50 years ago, and now the local out-there militias. They've always been around, but now there's so many cameras out there, very little doesn't get light shone on it, like it or not.

RE: Camping Safety

WOW, the OP just wanted some info on safe camping. Hopefully all this and that didn't or doesn't discourage them. OP, just do it, and enjoy it and like said a number of times, be aware, use your gut and eyes, you'll be fine. so safe travels,You ask an open ended question asking for opinions, you may get a lot more than you figured. I didn't see anything in any posts that would cause someone to be discouraged from traveling or RV'ing.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

I'm kind of looking for something for my Ram. I have a Weathertech tool box, but no auxiliary fuel tank. At the present time I'm using 2 5-gallon plastic fuel cans in the tool box. I don't carry much in the way of tools, so I've got lots of room. My old truck had a 35 gallon OEM tank, and a 35 gallon auxiliary tank. The new truck has a 32 gallon OEM tank, which is a bit small. I hate truck stops, so I prefer to fuel up without the 5th wheel attached. We rarely travel over 300 miles in a day any more so the OEM with the extra cans works...but barely. I'd like to have a bit more cushion, and an easier refuel than the fuel cans.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I've looked, and posted a bit on those two forums, not much different than here, albeit a bit more heavily moderated, so it stays all nice and squeaky clean. I like a bit of dissension now and again. :)
