  1. Just read your post. Agree that a funnel will not handle 30-60 gal/min. Are you telling me the slowest rate on any variable pump handle cannot be held down to accommodate a funnel?
  2. I believe the top 2 are Boondockers Welcome and Passport America. No other organization I know of can come close to their discounts.
  3. We have been members of Boondockers Welcome since Oct 2018. We have hosted around 50 times since joining. Used it almost exclusively on a 2 month trip last summer as guests. The money we saved on campground fees kept us on the road for the 2nd month. You get a 3 month guest credit every time you host. We have met the nicest and most interesting people. All that is required of a host is that they provide you with a place to park overnight. Most also provide water and electric and depending on the host you can stay up to 5 nights. Some charge a nominal fee for hook up. A 38' 5th wheel with 2 ACs uses less than 2 kw/day here in Florida. That is about $2.20 from my electric company. I see charging a fee as "gaming" the system. there are a few who do. We never charge anything. There are well over 2000 hosts in the United States! Without Boondockers Welcome we probably would quit RVing. It has spoiled us.
  4. Have had several accounts over the last few years. Always a nom de plume. Zuckerberg usually uncovers me after awhile and I resurface as someone else. I have no "friends". Only use facebook to read the homeowner's association page. Also, I use the Tor browser (black web) when logging on to facebook.
  5. I get the impression Pappy Y thinks his post was clever. Unfortunately Pappy Y, it reads as sarcastic. Him and others may not be versed in the rudimentary art of controlling variable pump flow rates. I for one am and so therefore I believe the funnel idea has merit.
  6. Well Linda et al, looks like you are spot on. I called the Loves in Hawthorne FL where I have been fueling with the TSD card for the last several months. Sure enough they have a small nozzle pump at the far end of the truck lanes. Wonders never cease!
  7. Well that is a well kept secret. Never crossed my mind nor had anyone mentioned it to me. Assumed they were all the large nozzles catering just to professional drivers and their big rigs.
  8. We have guests here with their Class C RV. Nice unit but......the fuel nozzle is the small one found at the auto-diesel pumps. They cannot use the truck lanes with the larger nozzle. This came out in a conversation about TSD Logistics. The program would be of no use to them as they cannot use the truck lanes. So we talked about a conversion or adapter. Anyone have any experience or insight into the feasibility?Thanks, Friz
  9. If you read it on facebook it must be true. Apologize for besmirching Marcus et al. Oh, almost forgot, my info also comes from facebook.
  10. TSD Logistics for diesel fuel as discussed. Hands down the best program out there. 100% legitimate. That is not an eye opener? um. Recent development: Our good pal Marcus has forced Pilot/Flying J to drop TSD Logistics. Apparently the paltry Good Sam discount could not compete with TSD Logistics. Marcus' contract with Pilot.Flying J has an "exclusivity" clause which pal Marcus enforced. Another reason I see GS going down the crapper. The old gray mare just ain't what she used to be. Shame.
  11. Unbelievable. Two days ago at Love's in Hawthorne FL diesel was priced at $2.43. I paid $1.67! First use of the card. Fortunately there is a Love's about 8 miles away from home.
  12. 0% interest? That is strange. You would think that someone who lent you money at 0% interest would encourage early payoff. Auto pay - no no. Actually it is auto access to your bank account. You may believe you are giving the vendor permission to withdraw a set amount from your bank account but actually you are giving them an open door to withdraw whatever amount they please. Normally not an issue but if there are objectionable charges you pay first then try to recoup your money.
  13. First time out ours overheated after about 30 minutes and stopped. It ran fine when sitting on the driveway. When I realized what had happened, I had it all the way forward in the truck bed up against the box wall, I moved it back to the hitch and it ran fine. Even considered plugging a 20" box fan into it to increase air circulation but have not had to yet.
  14. We did our 5th wheel, back to front with Traffic Master, African Wood Dark vinyl planking. Easy to work with and looks fabulous. May be a little on the soft side. Slide has put 2 good scratches in it.
  15. Well, I am not sure "How did I not know?" Per chance I am just not as sharp as you two. Please do NOT be so condescending. If I may restate my observation, why is fuel such a large percentage of cost? I researched a bit and found that diesel cost no more than $1 to $1.50 when we quit camping say 2005. That would be a 200% -300% increase. May possibly have something to do with my perception.
