    • Excellent news, Dave.  I'll have to add AR to my library.
    • Howdy All, If you have an older Truck and need to have gauges or the speedometer repaired I highly recommend this shop, AR SPEEDOMETER 3014N 74th E Ave. Tulsa OK, 74115 Phone number, 918-835-3300 Some of you may remember that I posted looking for a functioning old style Peterbilt speedometer as mine had stopped recording over all mileage and trip mileage, I sent the speedometer to a recommended shop in Arizona, Precision Speed, they told me it was NOT repairable.  One of our members posted to that thread with an ad from an EBay outlet that said they could repair this type of speedometer, I contacted AR SPEEDOMETER, that said to send it to them that they would fix it. Today I received in the mail my old speedometer totally rebuilt, showing the original miles plus a few for testing purposes with a one year warranty total cost to include shipping $162.00  That's 30 bucks cheaper then the new style speedometer which in my opinion looks like crap when compared to the old style.  Tomorrow I'll put my dash back together, I am a very happy camper.   Dave
    • Kirk I visited the escapade 2020 link, it says cancelled, but I didn't seen a link to the CG. What did I miss? We could not attend anyway, we don't know when Mayo Clinic will call to schedule Lin's appt., I was simply curious.
    • I think you get to teach us Glenn!  It's mobile and it is over 60V DC, would it need to fall under automotive high voltage rules?  Orange cables (or convelute), servicing disconnect connector, HVIL high voltage interrupt loop (does that apply to an only two item 'loop'?), tagged cut loops, etc, etc.  Do ya wear your linesman's gloves or do ya put trashbags over the panels?  Buy these parts out of the Leaf too?  Be very careful putting that part together! Google the hell out of it! Some automotive stuff to think about: https://ncdoi.com/OSFM/RPD/PT/Documents/Coursework/EV_SafetyTraining/EV EFG Classroom Edition.pdf
    • SOAP BOX TIME Golly, if I had a nickle for every tire discussion I have had over the years I would have enough money to buy a brand new set of Michelins.  BTW - the Goodyear Marathons had a manufacturing site in Canada before moving to China.  As consumers in the USA we must consider rules by the EPA, Unions, wages, facility taxes, OSHA, unemployment insurance, and availability of environmentally unfriendly materials that add to the price of the tire that may not be present overseas.  Our own need for a living wage, benefits and protections have driven tire manufacturing to countries where rules and needs are more lax.  If you remember, the big tire debacle that was back around 1996 with tires made in the USA by Firestore/Bridgestone and used on Ford Explorers was over "Made in the USA" tires.  In the RV towable industry manufacturers do everything they can to save a buck and keep the price of their trailers at or lower priced than the competition. For example, trailer A has "C" load rated tires rated for 2,623 pounds at 50 psi.  These tires will end up on a trailer using 5,200 pound axles with a total maximum weight rating of 10,200 pounds.  Let's see, 4 tires properly inflated = 10,492 pounds.  Two 5,200 pound axles = 10,400 pounds.  Yep, should be OK since the tires are rated for more than the maximum allowed weight of the trailer - right!  Next, the "C" rated tires come from the lowest cost supplier, maybe KungPo in the smog district of an Asian city mounted on a spec wheel with lug nuts and center caps at a cost of only $35 US (including shipping and duty tax) per tire when bought by the container load.  Most ( not US!) don't look at the tires, check pressures or avoid tight turns, potholes, speed ratings or weight to see if they are over the rated load - then BOOM - the tire fails and it is named a China Bomb.  The RV industry sets up the consumer and it makes me mad!  YES, there are bad tires made with recycled and inferior materials, insufficient adhesive under the tread and poor quality control.  But, Michelin could make the same tire it makes in the USA in China, Japan, Canada, Mexico or anywhere as long as the same quality standards were met.  Where a tire is built is not as important as how it is built.  You get bad tires made in the USA and with 65 million tires coming out of China (compared to less than 4 million in the USA) every year you are bound to have China Bombs.  BTW - what percentage of USA consumers buy tires by quality, reputation and place built rather than a lower price for a tire that looks the same?  We want living wages and benefits but also the lowest possible price.  Think about this:  When the Coleman-Powermate plant that made portable generators closed  in 2008 (Kearney, Nebraska - 200 employees) it was learned that of those employees that owned portable generators few were Coleman-Powermate.  Most of the ownership was of lower cost Chinese built generators that were hundreds of dollars less than their product.  Go figure?
