2021 Feb Cruise Rescheduled to 2022

At least it's completely paid for ... I said I would never ever go on another cruise. Current wife really wanted one, and found one that made me say yes. This may be closer to retirement, and we may have our 5th wheel by then.

RE: Rivian 1/2 ton high temp, grade test. Good read/video

hook up my travel trailer, tow it from MI to FL and see who gets there first. Not permitted to set up charging stations ahead of time. I wouldn't be surprised to see the electric take a week to show up.

RE: Wine Refrigerator; Not RV related

we had a brand new one that stopped within 24 hours of startup. Manufacturer admitted they had a problem and sent us a check. I bought a different brand on sale at Lowes and haven't looked back

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

You would have really hated life 22 years ago, before the internet went WIFI. My first use of remote computing, 75 baud acoustic coupler :) I couldn't get a straight story out of AT&T on directly contracting with them. Three different reps, three different plans/costs. I get the unlimited isn't truly unlimited. So far, haven't seen slow downs, even during heavy use months. Problem with T-Mobile, getting too many cell resets.

OTR Mobile - GRRRR

I "was" a fan of OTR Mobile. for $60, seemingly uncapped data and speed on AT&T network was IMO affordable. Back in April they did a forced change to T-Mobile AND raised the price to $70. Service has been less than stellar. Now they are doing another forced change back to AT&T. Price now going up to $90 per month. Working from home (Covid), this has been a savior to allowing me to be virtually anywhere, but a 50% increase in approximately 6 months! I've looked at other solutions, and they all seem to be even more expensive.

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

Going to take a LOT of electricity to charge those trucks. Look at CA with their blackouts. Batteries don't charge so well during blackouts.

Powering multiple low voltage devices in the truck

It's getting to be a wiring mess in the F150. In a year, we're ordering a SD. When towing, I have Rear trailer cameraGPS (like to run both this and Waze when towing)Front dash camTPMS (is the Ford Kit worth it?)2 phones Would it make more sense to get the overhead switches on the SD and wire things back to the fuse box? Any other suggestions to control the explosion of wires

RE: Half ton towing

Bottom line you need side wall stability on any tow rig! I followed a F150 towing what I would guess to be a 30' 5th wheel. I forgot to get the name of the 5er. The truck was definitely squatting, and best way to describe it, wallowing. I know when I went to 10 ply tires on my F150, towing my TT was much improved.

RE: Upgrading to a better phone

I went from Samsung 8 to iPhone 11 and HATE IT. The apple koolaid is poison. Don't do it. Loved my 8, had a broken screen (user fault), and a literally failing battery (age issue). Should have stayed with samsung, or repaired the prior unit.

RE: Tow mirrors and rear camera

legally, yes Video operating in your tow vehicle, very likely illegal

RE: Oil Change - synthetic oil

There's always the failed engine a dealer mechanic friend dealt with. Woman came in with a non running vehicle. Sludge poured out of the drain pan. When challenged on never getting her oil changed, she said it was changed every 3,000 miles, just like her daddy taught her. Even produced receipts, all from the same oil change place.

RE: Will honda 2000 start a 15k BTU air conditioner?

Aren't the easy start, soft start and hard start all functions the same on the start-up? Microair easystart electronically spins up the compressor at a slower rate. I believe the hard start is a big capacitor that may or may not work.

RE: Oil Change - synthetic oil

You can always test the oil. I do, and towing has ZERO impact on results. What does impact the oil and really showed up on the truck, frequent short trips is horrible on engines. I run to 10k+ plus on all my vehicles. The oil analysis is not only piece of mind, but provides good information too.

install a microair easy start and you'll be fine on the smaller generator
