RE: ANWR Drilling Stopped

I remember when the alaska pipeline was being built hearing folks crying how it would destroy all the caribou by blocking their travel routes. Then when I saw it I saw caribou hugging the pipeline, they werent afraid of it, it provided a windbreak in some spots, and since the oil is kept at 140 degrees, it ended up saving thousands from freezing. Saving the wildlife is a fallacy in many cases, and good fodder to feed the misinformed. Usually the same people who would block the safest method of moving oil (pipeline) and force the same oil to travel by rail or barge.

RE: Fuel Costs

Get ready for the increases, gas prices And this was from Politifact, NOT a right leaning organization. Contrary to a lot of the drivel from politicians who want to downplay their role, increasing regulations causes extra cost which shows up in the final price, as do restrictions on exploration, and the increased cost associated with transportation ie; truck/train/barge vs pipeline all help jack up the cost. No, a President does not control the price, but like everything politicians touch, they can muck it up so nothing flows smoothly or efficiently.

RE: Federal Mask mandate

The article only restates what the order says. And calling it a Mandate vs a suggestion is be coming. in line with what its authors called it. The order doesn't differentiate where it does or does not apply. AS I said, it was written by cubicle dwellers, with no thought or understanding of any other type or kind of lifestyle. And this was on day one, more "one size fits all" decrees will be coming. I just bought a small A, I just want to be able to use it, somewhere other than my driveway.

Federal Mask mandate

I've read several articles and cant find any out for folks boondocking. Again city folks think everyone lives in an urban cubicle. One size fits all I guess. Hopefully the rangers out there have better sense than the DC insiders.

RE: Crummy headlights - Can't see, need upgrade

Bob... Upgrade to a 2020.. the Ford's headlights were pure TURD.... I love the new LED's in the new trucks ! ! ! :B Well, due to fiscal irresponsibility in my life and a divorce, a 2020 isn't in the radar for me yet! I too love the new LEDs in the new trucks. Awesome! My only option is to replace mine, the entire assembly, not just a bulb upgrade. Good tips about the voltage at the bulbs. I am going to get in there with a meter and check. I can build a relay system and hard wire to the battery. If you are changing to LED note that the wattage requirement is much less than for Halogen.

RE: Crummy headlights - Can't see, need upgrade

I just replaced the assemblies on my ladies little 06 Cobalt with a set from here They were an easy install and seem to be working well.

RE: DP or Gas? DW vs DH

Not trying to ignite a gas vs diesel battle, a couple of things to consider. If looking new, gas fords are now coming out with the new 7.3 v-8 more torque, makes its power at lower revs and is mated to a tranny with at least and 6 s speeds and 10 are coming if not already on the dealers lots. Maybe drive on from a better line with the new drivetrains and decide for yourselves.

RE: Help me plan my trip please! RI, DE and MD

Normally, I would recommend Chincoteague/Assateague island as others have and then down to Williamsburg Va for the historic areas as well as Busch Gardens/Water Country USA, maybe even staying at Newport News Park. But we still dont know what will be open, Md and RI are some of the more restrictive states, they may not be good choices this year, or at the least access to many attractions may be spotty. Since your in Detroit, a trip to the west,, The Dakotas, Mt, even Wyoming may be a safer bet on having your plans stay intact.

RE: What is the best way to deal with snail mail?

Use a Fl based service, and as mentioned above, go ahead and change the domicile. Save 6 months of state taxes.

RE: solar

A resi fridge will draw upwards of 1000 watts on start up, a smaller unit (10 cuft) may draw a little less, you'll likely need a pair of GC batteries and two 100 watt panels as a minimum, and will not be able do much of anything else from them. and a couple of rainy/cloudy days will likely overtax that. Better to look at 4 batteries, and at least three 100 watt panels and 4 would be better. A very rough rule of thumb is to try to match watts of solar to amps of battery, ie for a single battery with almost 100 amp hrs capacity to a 100 watt panel. An audit of your actual usage, and then sizing a system to be 50 to 100% above your indicated usage is preferred to allow for partial shade or overcast conditions.

RE: Calling on Solar Techies

If the secondary heat source is a must, look into the Wave heater search No noise, propane heat, no fan. Some ventilation is needed, but these are very popular/common with rv usage. You can find plenty of threads in here as well as a lot of you tube videos on them. even the little 3000 btuh is impressive in an rv. Just changing this makes your success at the rest of the setup much more likely.

RE: First camp trip?

Is that some new model of Phoenix Cruiser? Hadn't seen that one before. Not too sure about that style, but the accessories are attractive.

RE: SD Address, yay or nay?

If you will be travelling extensively, having a mail service like Dakota Post has benefits, my meds are delivered to them in 3 month batchs and they forward to where I wish when I'm ready. The registration of your vehicles there, eliminates a need to return for state inspections and no emissions test. Yes you pay more for registration on larger vehicles, (my MH is about $260 a year) but no income tax and the conveniences i mentioned make it worthwhile to me.

RE: T-Mobile Coverage

One suggestion, dont change both lines if you have two. Having one on each system will help occasionally.

RE: Gander Outdoors

I think the difference now is politics. And before the Mods go off, I'm not promoting either side. Gander has always sold and promoted hunting and fishing along with the non rv camping gear. CW has always catered to the rv crowd. While on the surface the two clientele's may seem similar, many RV types hate guns and hunting and will boycott the business. So they are trying to figure out which side to pander to on a local basis.
