RE: Do you need Commercial Plates in NY to tow a trailer?

I spent hours searching the website for a blank form that I needed, walked in to the rural office and walked out 3 minutes later with the form that I needed. She stated that the website was way behind, she blamed Covid. Here in NY my experience was just the opposite, they also blame covid :) At the end of 2019 we had a new law go into effect in NYS called the Green Light law, which allowed illegal aliens to take the written exam and road test to apply for a drivers license. DMV offices got so crowded a 3 hr wait just to get to the information desk was typical. DL exams are the one thing you can't do on the website. Just as that surge started to taper off in March covid hit and the offices closed. Thankfully NYS does a good job with the website, so anything you can do online is faster. Please no political comments on this, I'm just stating the facts here. You need to get out of down state. Here in Seneca County a DMV visit is 20 minutes in and out!

RE: Do you need Commercial Plates in NY to tow a trailer?

No you don't cuz you don' have a high GVW to warrant commercial plates. Plus based one what you said, you don't plan on towing heavy/crazy. Have I seen comm plates on a 1/2 ton? Yes, but the truck have be used for comm biz. With pass plates, you'll be able to traverse roads that comm trucks cannot and MAYBE exact same truck cuz they have comm plates. Here in Syr area, comm trucks/plates banned from a road along Onondaga Lake, BUT a p/u w/ pass/town gov't plates can go on the same road. Go figure. Wow how much misinformation can you fit into one post. In NY a pick up having an empty weight of 6000 or less can be registered passenger. Registering passenger means that you will never use the truck for hire.If you put a ladder rack on or carry a tool box, you may get looked at. It is not a primary offense so it is doubtful that there would be a problem. But an accident or roadblock put put a hurt on your day !/2 ton with commercial plates does most definitely not mean your half ton needs to be used in business,I would guess that probably 80 percent of half tons are tagged commercial Only difference is commercial lets you pick your weight up to ratings, whiles passenger automatically goes to ratings. Onondaga Lake Parkway, In NY trucks are prohibited from using parkways. Don't matter what your plate says. How ever that is another law which is pretty much ignored, However do not tow a trailer or have business markings on the truck. https://dmv.ny.gov/registration/register-pick-truck-passenger-class-vehicle

RE: What do you do?

Why is the drinking so important? I never drink, but I do enjoy a good joint. People seem to object to my choice of relaxation, but yours is OK?

RE: Stimulus Payment Questions

Under the law the money isn't payable until Jan 4th. Some banks are posting it to your account when they receive the ACH info with a "pending" status, others are basically advancing you the money and show it as available right away, while others are waiting until the 4th to post it. And of course there will be the inevitable delays for some for a variety of reasons. Yes ours showed up yesterday as pending, payable 1/4.I collect SS, my wife is not eligible yet but both payments were noted.

RE: Employment VS Unemployment

If the hotel pays so little the housekeepers do better on unemployment Then the hotel is exploiting their labor force. No one should need 3 jobs or get more for NOT working than for working. THIS a thousand time over!

RE: Employment VS Unemployment

Where can an employee quit and still be eligible for unemployment? I thought that you had to be laid off. Heard this stuff last round also.

RE: A top to bottom look at green energy

Zero Emissions is an outright lie and really has hurt more than helped the agenda as most logical people can see it's a lie. EVs do offer an option at least for a significant percentage of vehicles to reduce emissions but don't lie about it. Another issue largely ignored is pavement. If we are successful in converting all the vehicles to battery electric, we will oil consumption by a huge amount. The vast majority of pavement is asphalt concrete...guess where the asphalt comes from. You may have a wonderful new EV that runs on unicorn farts but no roads to drive it on. What? If we are no longer using petroleum for fuel, we would have a **** load to build big beautiful roads, the biggest most beautiful roads you have ever seen. This whole discussion is bull ****. Mostly political opinion. No one has a clue where we will be in fifty years. Battery technology is in its infancy. Yes we have had batteries for hundreds of years,but only now has there been the impetus to improve. Green energy is in its infancy, and we will get it right in the next couple of generations. You are a fool if you deny anything that hasn't happened yet!

RE: More Reminiscing Part 2

I also remember, needing an engine rebuild at 70k,carbuerator freezing up,dieing in what should have been a fender bender, due to no crumple zones or air bags. Changing plugs and points at 8 k miles. Nope give me a modern low maintenance vehicle!

RE: How will my new F350 behave in cold temps?

Why is it a problem? Go to Wal Mart or any auto parts store and pull out six bucks for some anti gell. Ain't gonna hurt a dang thing, but may save you several hundred if you do catch a very cold spell and freeze your fuel. Fuel distributers are in business to make a buck, so they put the bare minimum they feel effective in the fuel. Better safe than sorry, treat your fuel!!!

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

I dropped AAA years ago because they don't offer RV service in my area. I wonder how folks passing thru this area are served if they call for service. I don't plan on calling anyone for a trailer tire change, towing would be my only need for a service plan. Even though I have air and electric impact wrenches at home, I do all wheel work with manual tools, and I am 3/4 of a century old. Well yahoo for you!!!! Ever hear the expression work smarter not harder? Why on earth would you do that when labor aids are available? Just for internet braggadocio? You won, I concede. Give me my pneumatic,and electric tools. I have nothing to prove even to myself!

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

If the issue is getting older then ditch the breaker bar idea. Break them loose and then ratchet them off by hand? Screw that. Get an electric impact. Cheap or expensive. Dont have to trust their claimed torque rating but got to think its ballpark. Good enough to compare models. x2

RE: Hit a bump and lost my transmission

I would be concerned with the rebuilt. Just dropping the valve body out a popping a new one in is not a rebuild. Nope transmission ,needs to be diassembled and cleaned,cleaned,cleaned.

RE: Propane tank

Top them both off. Why worry about something that is such a simple fix. RV furnaces suck propane like someone else is paying for it. If you are at a campground electricity will be the key to conserving propane. Run an electric heater,an use the furnace as a supplement,

RE: Reservations

I guess I am just a free spirit. On a five day trip especially in a class A,just find a wide spot in the road! That's is why you spent 6 figures on a big ugly box correct?
