    Toll road transponders

    It was two years ago that we couldn't use our EZTag in Oklahoma.

    South Carolina State Transport Police encounter

    Randyretired "I also haul a dump trailer and a flatbed trailer to transport a backhoe and skid steer. All if it is for personal use." If the backhoe and skid steer are only used for your own property, you should be OK. If they are used in conjunction with any work that you receive income from, you may not be.

    Moresmoke, I'm not an expert in this field, but my impression is that the amount of winnings and expenses like fuel are irrelevant in many states. For example, in CT, it's only about ANY income, not profit.

  7. This is a great primer for folks looking for the next big thing, and like Tesla can stand volatility and tolerate folks using opinions in place of facts naysaying. recreational pot is legal in 10 States, and soon all like Canada. Some things are just inevitable. Excerpt: "Aurora Cannabis (ACB) continues to be the major cannabis company that gets the least respect, and there are several reasons for that being the case; all of which provide a terrific opportunity to get the company at a bargain price before it takes off again. Among the major reasons for it being underappreciated are the broader market correction, many investors misunderstanding or overemphasizing the recreational market in Canada, the wrongheaded idea that Aurora can't attract a larger partner, and not pricing in the tremendous deals the company has been making in relationship to production capacity, medical cannabis and international expansion. All of this things will result in it outperforming its peers in the years ahead, with the obvious caveat its competitors could make some deals that alter that thesis. But as things stand today, and are likely to remain in place for several years, Aurora Cannabis will without a doubt be the strongest performer in the production side of the cannabis sector." The article goes on to show the reasons we see and the facts behind them in the whole article on Seeking Alpha here: Full Article

    Dutch_12078, I do see value, and I provided it. The link I provided in my original response covered your concern. Here's the link again: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-ZPass

    South Carolina State Transport Police encounter

    Phil was apoplectic about my demeaning suggestion that he adopt a new handle: "Commercial Intercourse Officer". We had a private conversation. I fought back, correcting him. It isn't demeaning, it's accurate! He said maybe so, but that doesn't make it right. Then he came around and changed his mind and decided he wanted to change his Escapees ID. By this time I was seething. I electronically yelled at him saying you can't. I just trade-marked it. He threatened me about never setting foot in TX. --------------- Just kidding. We had a delightful conversation, and I learned some things. We agree (but Phil won't be adopting my playful suggestion for a new hande).
  10. The Escapees tire discount leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn't cover motorhome tires, medium duty truck tires or even most sizes of pickup tires. It is good for trailers and autos. That's about it. I've asked repeatedly about when they may include medium duty truck tires but Escapees just says "they're working on it". FMCA and Coach-Net have very good tire discount programs. FMCA's discount will more than cover the cost of a one year membership. FMCA's program is also very user friendly so you can see exactly what you pay. They send you to a dealer in your area after you get a price using their online tool.

    M2-106 Air leak

    Not sure if this will help but I had an issue with the cab bags leaking down. I never found a leak to fix but I put a check valve in the line before the bags. Never had in issue since and all it takes is to cut the line and insert the valve. Compression fittings so no tools needed only cost a couple bucks so very cheap fix.

    My Texas EZ-TAG worked in Oklahoma last year when I went from Hutchison, KS to Elk City, OK. I'm with Jim...maybe they quit accepting it (or their web site is out dated). Jim, are you near me??
  13. Hi   Been lurking and member for awhile but never posted. Have had a 05 Freightliner M2 as tow vehicle for a few years and recently bought a 14 Volvo 730. Going to try to work it for a bit then convert it to only RV hauler.  Always looking for info about the rigs as I find them interesting.  Involved in trucking industry for some time although never as commercial driver although licensed as such for years.  Did lots of mods to the M2 so now its time to do it to the volvo,

    It's changed since this spring then. We ran some of the OK toll roads because of less traffic with the EZTag. We were billed for it like normal on the statement. It's an EZ Tag. I had to put more on the account today.... or they took more today when we went around 99 east.

    I don't have a smart but i do have two motorcycles and have never been charged extra for them in any parks i have stayed in that area.
  16. Tracking occurs when you have your "Location Services" set to "on" and your "location history" also on. I think the recent stink was that Google was collecting data on people even when their location history was set to "off". But if you have your GPS location service set to "off" then no tracking will occur except the coarse tracking that can occur by knowing what cell tower you are logged into. But that means you can't use turn by turn navigation or search Yelp for nearby restaurants, etc.

    With all due respect, the Oklahoma Pikepass website says that EZTAg and TX Tag are not currently accepted on Oklahoma highways. Maybe you have a North TX Toll Authority pass and don't realize it.

    From a past experience with Cliff Jones in Sealy, TX, I would advise you to be very careful in dealing with anything associated with Cliff Jones. Ken

    No, they don't. They sell the EZ TAG. It is completely different than the EZ Pass. The EZ TAG works on toll roads in Texas, and apparently in some adjacent states, but most certainly does not work in the Northeastern US. The EZ PASS, on the other hand, works in the states that I listed in a previous post, but does not work anywhere in Texas. This is an important distinction when discussing various toll tags. Accuracy counts...

    I found this info very helpful. Thanks folks! This is a link to the shop manual but it's lengthy. Webasto Shop Manual Air Top 2000STC
  22. It would seem to me that when you give permission for them to get your location so that you can find restaurants near you that could be how they track you? I do tend to think like above why would I care if I was tracked? Who would want to?

    I've seen this same post of yours with a link to your blog on several other forums now. Seems you are trying to get readers to your blog??

    The Three Sisters are twisty mountain roads - very nice. There are non-paved ranch roads all over the area that are fun to explore. We love to ride both, so we have dual sport/adventure bikes. Jim & Teri

    Cummins ISL 9L Problems?

    I will add that if I could find a programmer out there that would allow me to delete it I would!!!!!

    I just checked and all I saw was EZ Tag, would love for TX to accept EZ Pass.

    Cummins ISL 9L Problems?

    I have a 2017 Freightliner with isl9 in it. Bought new in July of 17. It now has 70k on it. The def header has gone out twice in it with the last time being near Denver. I barely made it to a Freightliner shop before it derated and I had horses behind me. It’s a long story how it was eventually repaired but trans west in longamont treated me right. It was still under the emissions warranty. I’m tempted to sell it and find a pre emission truck as I don’t want to pay 2k per year on a new def header.
