RE: Walmart overnight and running the generator

I ran my generator in of all places a downtown Tulsa Wal-Mart. With all the idling semis and tour busses and addicts and hookers wandering the parking lot my generator was more than likely not noticed.

RE: What's up with the DEF Delete?

Not really Germaine, but New York, all emissions equipment needs to be physically present. So even if it did clear emissions with the delete, it would still be a no go.

RE: Neighbors Wouldn’t Help

Honking your horn is probably the absolute worst way to request help. The passer-bys and your neighbor probably thought you were some kind of a yahoo being a jerk' I wouldn't be to judgmental. As earlier noted the VA has transportation available and so does Medicaid.

RE: GM HD Trucks Many with AWD instead of 4WD

I didn't know that there was only one kind of snow. Depends on moisture and temperature. Lake effect is wet and heavy, a shovel full may weight 30 pounds. Lake Effect will stop any vehicle dead in its tracks. Perfect for making snow men. Slicker than snake **** Cold temperature snow, may feel like nothing in your shovel. You can blast through a foot of the stuff in a dramatic cloud. Is not real slippery. will not pack for even a snowball. Western NY is in no way the beginning of the Midwest. It is solidly and proudly EastCoast Mid Atlantic.

RE: Best tow vehicle for our rig

You must have been misled about diesel upkeep; it really isn't much more than gas trucks. You're thinking of getting a gas truck with 90,000 miles; that would be barely broken in for a diesel. I'm getting 21mpg highway (not towing) with my 16' 3500 and between 10 and 12 mpg towing a heavy 5th wheel. I also use my truck as a daily driver. Its a personal choice but your reasons against diesel aren't legit. If you really want a good towing truck then you might want to rethink diesel options. Why oh why? The man said he is looking for gas engine truck. Why would you recommend anything else?

RE: Who do you use for Insurance?

I am I wrong or is everyone else. The insurance on your trailer is not in effect when it is hooked to your truck! Your auto policy covers it. The insurance on your camper covers it when parked or stored. The trailer policy covers in storage or use. Theft fire trees fallin hail,pretty much anything that occurs when it stand alone. Am I wrong, This was always my assumption!

RE: Class C vs Trailer for Cross country with family? Help

No you are not. There is no way you can do it in three days and no way you will be staying at rest stops. Why are you even bothering to go? Obviously you have no grasp of what is to be seen and experienced. If you insist on doing this insane act, do it in a class c so you can swap drivers and run it 24 hours a day. He;; you might even be able to set a land speed record.

RE: Should I connect my sewer line when camping?

I hook it up on arrival. Whether overnite or several days. Unless I am a a particular destination the only reason I am in a RV park to begin with is to catch up on services.

RE: Preference for one night camping

We stay in RV parks almost exclusively. If we were traveling, I doubt we would pass up a park close to the highway to travel to one further away. About the only circumstance that would change that would be where the highway RV park had terrible reviews and the other park had stellar ones. Even then, we would probably be more likely to just either stop sooner or drive further along our route than spend that time traveling off the route. Of course the million dollar question is just how far, how long, and how inconvenient is your definition of a "few minutes" to get there? Narrow roads, congested side streets or dense urban travel all work against leaving the main highway. And then there is the cost issue for many. With many rigs every 7 miles adds two gallons of fuel to the costs (7 miles in, 7 miles back). With diesel around $3.00/gallon that's adding $6.00 to the site costs. Plus those 14 total miles on side streets are adding 30 minutes to the trip (figure 30 MPH average with stop signs, turns and side road speed limits). On several levels it seldom pays to go very far off the beaten path for us. If you need to be concerned with six dollars, you may have the wrong hobby! We stop any place it is convenient where we think we won't be hassled.Very rarely do we get a RV Park for one night. We really don't even look at reviews if we choose to pay for one night.

RE: 2020 F250XL 6.2 V8

Why are people scared to let their machines run as intended? The engineers did not give you eight speeds intending the tranny to stay in OD constantly. Small block V-8 are designed to make power above 3500 rpm,why are you scared to let the engine work as designed? I love the sound of my 5.7running up hill in 3rd gear at 3700 rpm. Pulls like a freight train!

RE: Double Towing Length Laws

I double tow a little over length and so far haven't been ticketed. When I'm double towing I'm usually not terribly far from home so I could drop the back trailer and come back for it in the event I get pulled over by an unreasonable law officer. Unreasonable law officer hmm. If you are legal, you are legal, if not you are not. LE's job is to enforce the law,not to adjust it as the urge hits him!

Doesn't make sense not to let your engine work as it was designed to do.

RE: Several questions

I am just another guy on the interweb. I would not recommend a truck and trailer. They are a pain in the butt.especially for folks your age and one of you being a nondriver. I would recommend a large B or small c.

RE: Teaching to tow?

Teach them to be unapologetically assertive. I don't mean be a bully. I mean to confidently hug the center line for making a wide right hand turn.. Signaling well in advance and make a clean swift lane change. Teach them to use the amount of road they need. Make them understand that every driver behind them hates their guts,just for being in the way,and to be prepared to avoid or defend. Teach them that other drivers will tailgate and can't be seen in the mirrors. Depending on the conditions you can use shadows to tell if anyone is behind you. Teach them to keep a good eye on the mirror for trucks overtaking them and to get a firm grip on the wheel. Most trucks are non events, but every once in a while a particular truck will suck/push like a mofo. Not good for it to be a surprise!

RE: What's with Bio diesel?

They only run on bio diesel or can run on bio? Where are you finding these trucks? I think you are misunderstanding. All trucks from the major manufacturers come from the factory running on diesel, most will are allowed to run a certain percentage of bio such as 10 or 15%. I am talking out my azz here,but I think that 100% bio takes certain modifications.

RE: Any safety issues these days?

These protests and demonstrations normally take place in the "downtown" areas of cities,around the police station or their government buildings. Keep moving stat out of city centers, no reason for you to be there while traveling through anyway. My guess is that this trip will be a total non event for you. You are being scared for nothing!

RE: Generator for Rving, any recommendation please?

Why is the standard response from newbies and very oldsters always “generators?” Probably because most of us want an easy enjoyable experience. Most of us do not want an engineering project,most of us want to enjoy traveling and camping without a bunch of extra equipment. Most of us require air conditioning at times. Find me a solar battery array that will run a 13k btu conditioner for 8 to 10 hours, for less than a thousand bucks. All that being said, generator noise sucks. Even my Honda 2000 idling away is intrusive.
