Re: Idea: January/February Southern Arizona Rally in Quartzsite

Looking forward to that! Out here where we are, dogs are able to be off-leash and traffic and dust are practically non-existent...yet we are only about 10 minutes from town. I know you have plans at the RV park but if you come early, you can holler at me and I can come in to town and meet you and b...

Re: Idea: January/February Southern Arizona Rally in Quartzsite

Folks, I'm out here at La Posa South, with the government shutdown there is nobody to give money to, so for right now, the LTVAs are free....of course the BLM land is free also for 14 days limit. Temps are mild, nights are cool, traffic around the big RV show is heavy...but it thins out some as you...

Re: How long did your oridginal battery last?

I wonder if the efi itself requires more "omff" from the batteries than just a regular simple "carbie"? Prior to detonation and actual start-up. Using the word "detonation" as it relates to Urals is probably bad karma. Howdy stagewex, In my opinion and I am NOT an electrical person the fuel injecte...

Re: How long did your oridginal battery last?

Howdy All, I think there are two things that contribute to long battery life, a GOOD battery to start out with and then regular use that provides enough charge time to make up for the use of the starter and lights. My batteries aren't lasting as long as they used for the simple reason I have to darn...

How long did your oridginal battery last?

Howdy All, For the last year my FI rig has been finicky when starting, sometimes it would fire right up other times it would crank and crank and then finally start. I checked the battery voltage it seemed to hold a charge but last fall it failed to start and the battery would take a charge but it wo...

My CDL is due for renewal in March. I was thinking I might drop it ... now I'm thinking I wont.
Howdy Lew,

If your driving a "motor home", as I am, you don't need one.

A short video, driving the Pete, home from my last big trip.

Howdy All, I was going through the photos I took during my last trip and ran across this short video that I had forgotten, if you have ever wondered what view from behind the steering wheel looking out over the "Hood" on a Peterbilt 379, is you should like this little video. If you don't like Classi...
