Yeah, the 2-prong/3-prong thing probably not a problem, but add the hose and now you've got something.I feel like there is another with the waters proximity to the illegal electrical situation, but I'm a consultant now and got to delete OSHA requirements from my brain after taking the PE exam.
We bought a 33' Keystone Passport- I picked it up in Kansas yesterday and dragged it back to Denver (we have RV dealers here but the one in KS was $6k cheaper). I averaged 21 mpg on the way out and 7 mpg on the way home. There was one particularly horrible section (probably 3 MPG average) between Colby, Kansas and Burlington, CO where I almost quit because the wind was so bad. Of course, that is the section with wind turbines right next to the highway. Those engineers definitely did their research and put them in the right place.
1/2 ton Silverado with a 5.3. I am aware this is not ideal, but I am within my limits and it is safe (maybe not when the wind is that bad). We are going east from Denver so the wind and elevation should be advantageous.What are you towing with?
Sorry...what are these "emissions" you speak of?1/2 ton Silverado with a 5.3. I am aware this is not ideal, but I am within my limits and it is safe (maybe not when the wind is that bad). We are going east from Denver so the wind and elevation should be advantageous.
I was ready to get a bigger truck (would have gotten a trailer with more slides too) and a diesel but I couldn't bring myself to drop that much money and get half of what I wanted for options. I looked at used ones too, but they are skyhigh and we are in that life cycle where the affordable ones for people like me that would use them sparingly are basketcases of emissions BS. I seriously considered an old 7.3 F250, but envisioned everything but the engine failing as we try to drive across the country.
I have not had that issue. I have found www.gm-trucks.com to be a really good resource to keep mine in check. Search the forum, I bet someone has had the same problem. Persistent electrical problems are the worse, especially on these new vehicles that are so tied to the electronics.
I get along pretty well with the 5.5 ft bed. Helps to have an 18ft trailer for the times when the truck by itself won't quite cut it.If the used market wasn't so ridiculous right now, I'd probably sell it (it's crazy low mileage), and go pick up something with higher mileage crew or quad cab and a 6.0 since all I use it for is hauling/towing. But that 8 foot bed sure comes in handy more often than not.
It would be an easier decision if I had my trailer here. Because of the damned HOA, I have to store it at a friend's house, which means an hour round trip just for trailer retrieval/storage. Which is yet another reason why I need to escape this hellhole.I get along pretty well with the 5.5 ft bed. Helps to have an 18ft trailer for the times when the truck by itself won't quite cut it.
I've been thinking about upgrading to an F250 but the ones my friends have seem to spend a lot of time at the dealer dealing with computer issues. Also, my F150 has two things going for it: 1) everything works right now, and 2) It has the "paid-for" option installed.
Uhhh, hello...where at?So we are at my in-laws outside Cincinnati. I checked the credit card statement a couple days ago- currently averaging $0.50 per mile over ~1700 miles all but 300 or so were towing...
Honestly, not really sure. Liberty Township I think. Maybe Hamilton. Potentially Princeton. Almost Fairfield. Is Bridgewater Falls a town?Uhhh, hello...where at?
Whatcha get? *Ears perked upI figure the automotive thread is the best place to post, since my addiction to cars has been a big reason for my absence on the forum.
I’ve picked up a few additional classic cars over the last 6 months.
I have enough small projects now to keep me busy for quite a while.
hope everyone in here is well and keeping the driving to a minimum with these fuel prices.
I'm not "in-the-know" on Cincinnati suburb pecking order/class order, but how does Hamilton turn into Hamil-tucky? It's the one of the furthest suburbs (you can make an argument it is not a suburb) of Cincinnati from Kentucky? Is it purely because Hamil-ianda doesn't sound as good? Geographically the Hamilton/Indiana reference makes sense.Yeah...that's not Cincinnati. That's Hamil-tucky. We don't go there.
