  1. Dave I have had several vehicles that run on LPG and it is a great fuel however I am talking about Natural gas that comes to most homes. Trucks are running on Natural gas also. There are several truck stops selling nat gas to the more regional trucks by that I mean 150 mile one way stops.
  2. I can say that I travel a 200 mile stretch of I-80 in Nebraska regularly. It has at least 4 charging stations in that stretch of road. I almost never see any one charging. I would not want to have money invested in this venture. If or when diesel is phasing out natural gas will replace it. UPS is running some trucks out on the interstate on natural gas now. It is coming to a place near you!
  3. x2 on the battery minder. The results are not in yet but I have some batteries that are getting pretty old and still working.
  4. I paid $3500 4 years ago and they pulled the Herrin bed off to mount the hitch then put the bed back on. Seems way high.
  5. Why try to reinvent the wheel when someone already has one that is tested for only $160
  6. have a accident ( not even your fault) and your insurance co can say sorry your account is void. And if someone is killed in the wreck you will wish you had a larger truck.
  7. You need to fill the trailer with your gear and the amount of water you would haul. Now go weight the whole rig at the cat scale then unhook the trailer and weight just the truck. Now you can calculate the weights to see where you are. Remember just because you can pull it doesn't mean you can control the rig in an emergency situation.
  8. If you get all the way to the tee do not just reteflon but replace the tee with a brass tee.
  9. I have a question. If you are so concerned about carbon why don't you drive a toyota prius instead of a winnebago and a colorado pickup
  10. Back to the original topic, why are we so concerned about renewable energy anyway? The world has tons of clean burning natural gas but it is still off limits. Every semi truck in America could run on Nat Gas but why not? Finally the United States loves ethanol but do you know how much diesel is used to truck corn to the plant and then truck the mash back to a feed lot to be fed to cattle? Not to mention that ethanol plants use large amounts of water. So much could be done about energy conservation but instead we focus free non polluting energy instead of making the system more efficient.
  11. I do some reading on Prevost sites. These guys figure $10k per year plus depreciation. That's a "Money Pit"
  12. I think it depends on each coach. Not even by brand because each floor plan is made different. Now getting a shop to even work on major repair might be another story.
  13. Sir, I don't want to argue BUT last month midwest electric lemoyne,NE I paid 41.52 plus tax for 155 KWH. Now this includes their monthly service but they can keep the rate lower by charging a service fee like most do. In Hastings,Ne I paid .12 per KWH and no service fee on coal fire electricity. So when reporting the KWH price you really need to ask if there is a monthly service fee. Again, just from my bill not off the internet.
