Lemon Laws, some things may be changing

Just had a new item pop up on You tube. The RV show on there had a segment on lemon laws, and apparently a case in Illinois has signaled something that may become more frequent. Dealers failures to PDI units upon arrival at the dealership may place onus on them for repairs. Interesting clip for any who are interested. You tube This is one case in one state, but apparently involves a sales law that is common in most states and is outside the specific "lemon laws" pertaining to vehicles.

RE: What air compressor do you carry?

I have had one of these from Lowes for a couple of years, works on either 120 AC or 12 DCisn't as noisy as a lot of these units, doesnt take a lot of space. Kobalt

RE: Boycott campgrouunds that allow campfires.

There was a thread on here just last week where some folks were voicing their dislike for losing the authentic camping experience due to parks not allowing campfires. Point is, you cant please everybody.

RE: Suburban IW60 Nautilus Tankless Water Heater?

Here is the data from AP tankless that makes a lot of these units. This is not a specifically RV model. tankless The AQC 3.1 is the only 120 Volt model, it will warm a half gallon of water per minute, 40 degrees F. And will be drawing 25 Amps doing it.

RE: Winnebago investing heavily in Electric powertrains

A Prius for example has a 121 HP, 1.8 liter gas engine for when the battery can't keep up. Trying to use a small engine to recharge a much larger battery bank is going to require many hours of generator time to provide a short driving time. If you were to boondock for a week with a lot of solar, supplemented with several hours a day of genny time you could recharge a sizable battery bank. But who would want to spend the amount of money that this rig would cost to be limited by its characteristics?

RE: Winnebago investing heavily in Electric powertrains

Either way on these last two items, doesnt that defeat the purpose of the "Clean" vehicle? Both gas and diesel vehicle drives have all forms of clean burn tech built in, from catalytic converters and fuel injection to DEF systems, Portable generators and small non vehicular systems have none of those supposedly "clean features". They produce more emissions and have a higher pollutant level of exhaust than vehicles designed to minimize those items. You would be eliminating a cleaned system to run electric, refueled by a dirty system. And you are now adding the weight of an additional generator and the associated fuel to your "Clean" system taxing it even further.

RE: Suburban IW60 Nautilus Tankless Water Heater?

Can not speak to your specific question but i will point out, propane provides a maximum burn of 91,000 btu per gallon. consider how the run times will change how long your propane last as well as water availability. If you are in an rv park with full hookups, you may love the "unlimited hot water" Does the tankless offer any form of electric water heating when you have electric available? Just points to consider.

RE: Winnebago investing heavily in Electric powertrains

Curious how the CCC numbers will work out. Teslas batteries weigh over 1200 lbs, don't know what these will weigh but have to believe it will be a lot more, am curious if you can put much in one, especially after filling a fresh water tank.

Enjoy shopping for your new van and tt.

RE: Why aren't Truck Campers popular in W. Pa.?

Dealers carry what experience has told them they can sell. But if its any help again about 7 hours from you there is a TC dealer near Raleigh NC that you may want to scope out. D&H Good luck in your hunt

RE: SS Agile Solar question

I think your referring to a Roadtrek camper van. If so it's considered a class B. As to how quiet, Road trek is a premium builder, they are known for quality products, but remember you are looking at a very small space. An AC unit or even a refrigerator may seem quiet in a house, but if you sat two feet from it, it may seem very loud. Inside a camper this size, you are sitting within 3 to 4 feet of basically everything. If an appliance has moving parts, you will likely hear them. Also the windows on this are no different than those in an automobile, sounds from outside will be heard inside much more so than in a house with thermopane windows and 4-6 inch thick insulated walls.

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

I dont know if I'm just over gentle on my old Dodge/Ram but my 2500 with a 360 gets about 14 to 15 mpg now @ 212k miles, I got closer to 16 when it was new. Thats running unladen. I am in flat land and mild hills only, with occasional trips into the Blue Ridge areas. When I take the TT it drops off to 11-12 but again I'm gentle keeping speeds to 55 or so. The higher mileage would drastically affect the chart for mileage your using for comparasions, I dont know if Diesel would improve enough to cover the difference.

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

Have to believe the Ford will blow this one away, maybe not on fuel economy, but if the claims on width of torque range are true, and the supposed tranny improvements for 2020, the 7.3 should not even be close. Will be interesting to see this done as a shootout in a few months.

RE: Different kind of Jack-knife

With it appearing that all the truck makers are building them taller from the factories with 18-20 inch wheels and taller off road suspensions, this will continue. How many now have a problem of not being able to lift full profile 5ers any farther without going above the 13'6" mark? Folks either are already are or soon will be forced to reduce side rail clearance to stay lower overall.

RE: Urine odor eliminator

While i believe most people would agree that it's preferred to take them outside the areas where kids, families etc are expected to often be barefoot as well as living, cooking, eating etc. IF you can not for whatever reason I will suggest a product for neutralizing it as much as possible. Natures Miracle is a product we sold in our pet shop and it has a good following. For use inside when accidents happen and could be used in a small outside pen as well. It is one of the safest products around as well. For your use, a small garden sprayer should work with this product, but you do have to well coat whatever material you are sanitizing.

RE: Modern Food?

Slow versions of what was fast food can be answered easily, menu additions. Look at the size of the menu and then check out the drink selections, sodas, tea, and now milkshakes competing with smoothies and every kind of crappachino they can dream up. There literally isnt room enough in the back to staff all those stations and turn out food that is prepared on site.

RE: Where do you find water

Not always, but often the same places offering a dump station have a potable hose outlet nearby. If you havent used it, Sani Dumps may help with both task.

RE: Modern Food?

I know it seems counter intuitive, but at Texas Roadhouse, try the chicken sandwiches. Some of the best I've had.

RE: I want something different!

Since you are on the road travelling, why not start following the Dutch Oven groups? Learn some new dishes and methods or, start researching food festivals and visiting them? festivalnet

RE: Allowing non-housebroken dog to move in

You mentioned have a dog of your own, do the two get along? Yours could be a help in training hers. The older Chihuahua may want to go outside when it has a running mate. If they dont get along, you may have an even greater problem with a territory battle rising between them and your floors being the battlefield.
