RE: Can trailer tires be patched?

First trip out in our last camper we picked up a 1/2 inch bolt. Discount patched it up and it worked fine. https://i.imgur.com/fQj6H5Al.jpg FWIW, if the hole was greater than 1/4" then the "repair" was not in accordance with Industry Standards for a highway tire. Under some exceptions, repairs can be made on punctures up to 3/8" ( LT Steel Cord Body) tires. Of all the tire stores out there, Discount Tire has had the reputation of playing fast and loose with tire repair guidelines. For years they use "rope type" tire plugs from the outside for almost all there puncture repairs. Here's a link to the Tire Industry Association and their guide for PROPER tire repair: Tire Repair/Tire Industry Association The tire I had repaired was done by BigO about 10 years ago. They did recommend I only use it as a spare until I got home. I still had about 1000 miles to go on that trip. BigO did not have a tire of same size so that was my best choice at the time.I would skip the dismount, push in the plug, check pressure and roll. If it is loose push in 2 - 3 plugs.

RE: Old tow rig about ready for duty again!

A bit lifted for towing but great for around town or a trek through the weeds ;)

RE: Traveling with Propane on

Fridge, furnace, water heater is all on if needed. Fridge is aways needed. Never left the stove on while in motion although if it was a MH I would not hesitate to use it if needed. Conveniently the fuel port is not close to any of the propane items so all can run continuous.

RE: Low Battery Voltage

I would start with charging the battery 72+ hours with the converter. Once charged, disconnect the cables and wait another 48 hours with nothing connected. While disconnected and resting a couple days the battery should hold 12.6+ volts. Post the results.

RE: Fuel cost in your area

I plugged my car in five hours while at work today. Not sure what the company cost was. Maybe $4 to pick up 50 miles of range. So, plugging in for 5 hours gives you 50 miles of range? At 6 gallons per minute (the pump capacity of most commercial gas stations) I can pump 1800 gallons of gas - a LOT better range than yours!Fueling speed only matters while waiting. My wait time was zero.

RE: The cost of a Diesel Truck

Good to sell into a market of vehicle shortages. Nov 2008 was around the start of the great recession, must have gotten a good price to buy. Impeccable timing can work wonders. Not many can double end it.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

It was not pressure building over the past 10 years. The increases in the amount of circulation coincide with the covid stimulus packages. The first few packages, the left filed it with so much pork barrel spending(that had nothing to do with covid) that the previous administration fought to remove. The next administration wanted to add even more money than what was in the bill. This spending is was caused the need to print more money.Well if it is all because of the infrastructure bill you better hold onto your hat. We are just six months into a five year plan. I am actually amazed that this has actually resulted in the world wide inflation at the same time. Who knew we had such influence from building a few local projects.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

More like get vaccinated and get back to work far more than any shutdown. I remember there would be vaccinations available to everyone and 4th of July 2021 was going to be the new freedom with 95+% of the population vaccinated. Of course there was a lot of resistance to getting vaccinated and any mandates went nowhere. We have seen the enemy and it is ourselves ;) The last administration printed more than any one previous or since. But that was not the case. Many blue states still shut down or shuttered even after the vaccine(unless you were rioting). The current administration supported these shut downs and even chastised red states like mine who stayed open. Also, as you can see in the link federal reserve showing the amount of money in circulation. The money in circulation exploded in March 2020 after the bill signed by the current administration and the amount put in circulation during the previous administration was no where near the increase in the past two years. So I am not sure how you can say more was printed with the last administration when there wasn't that much of an increase in circulation unless they destroyed trillions of currency. Currency in Circulation I looked at your graph. Jan 2017 to Jan 2021 1504 to 2093 is 147 average annual increase Jan 2021 to jan 2022 2093 to 2233 is 140 during the first year. The pressure has been building for probably a decade.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

Oh, AND its not socialist...Of course not. Controlling prices directly is the socialism. There are already too many controls like rent control(stabilized) in some areas.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

I was just naming a few ways a president, governor, and/or legislator has an effect on prices. The current administrated supported the "shut everything down" policy even though many economist said we will pay for it later down the line. He also supported and pushed the Covid spending Trillion dollar spending spree bill where more than half went pet projects that had nothing to do with covid which causes us to print more money which in turn causes higher inflation because the dollar is worth less. There are many more ways that these people can effect current prices. Many new or special edition vehicles are bought out by those who can afford them so they can sell them at exorbitant prices later on. That is nothing special or new.More like get vaccinated and get back to work far more than any shutdown. I remember there would be vaccinations available to everyone and 4th of July 2021 was going to be the new freedom with 95+% of the population vaccinated. Of course there was a lot of resistance to getting vaccinated and any mandates went nowhere.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

Are you implying that along with fuel the president also controls the price of trucks? What about Milk, he control that too? Control? No. Influence pricing due to policy, legislation, and regulation? Yes. You can have the EPA make up new environmental laws that force refineries to shutdown or close the economy due to aggressive covid policies causing many energy companies to lose profit for a few years meaning they had to shut down at least five refineries in the past two years. You can force states to go renewable energy like wind mills that are more susceptible to harder climates, then when you have a freak cold snap for two week, then refineries that are making the additives for oil and fuel are forced to shut down due to no power. There are many more things that a president, governor, or legislator can do and have done that effect costs.So a few marginal players went bankrupt during the extreme drop in fuel demand during the pandemic and during the previous administration..... now the economy comes back and it is the fault of the current administration? This is just part of our economic system more than the administrations. JMHO. Same in other areas. We were unknowingly living in a bit of a bubble that has now burst. Either way the terrible fail Ford Lightning is sold out for at least three years.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

And how do we control the entire world having increasing costs? What is the solution? Nationalize the oil industry and hold the price down? Sounds like socialism. :(

RE: More on LFP Charging

I have a 100a pass-thru charger and a PD 9245 - the highest combined amperage I ever witnessed is 82a (usually a bit lower as it tapers down), this feeding into 400a/h of LFP (cylindrical cells = air gaps), mfg’s ‘C’ rate is 1.0, but I can’t even get close…With just the lowly PD, I can’t hardly imagine exceeding most other mfg’s C rate… 3 tonsWould seem like a charger issue or the wiring is inadequate more than a battery limitation.

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.Review the title of the thread and date of post #1.

RE: More on LFP Charging

At 0.3 C the "rapid charging" feature disappears compared to my favorite chemistry. 166 amps is too slow? On a 100 amp Li it would be 30 amps yes? So where does 166 come from? (scratching my head)Check your signature ;)

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.Actually the prototype Semi has been around for a while using an adapter to charge from multiple superchargers. About time the Mega Charger is brought out for testing.
