    Best RV forum

    We are considering getting a travel trailer and hitting the road this summer and looking for some (a lot of) information. How many here are into RVing and what forums are you using? This is a fairly new interest, we have no RV experience and are literally at square 1. We are going to rent/borrow...

    Trying to spec out 2021 Expedition Max and I’ve run across two options that can’t be selected together: Heavy Duty Tailer Tow Package ($795) ControlTrac with eLSD ($1100) Can someone fill me in on why to go with one over another? I don’t currently tow much outside of the occasional open top...

    How long will gas/diesel be available

    With multiple vehicle manufactures committing to go all electric within the next 5-10 years, how many years after that do we have where gas/diesel is as readily available (and relatively affordable) as it is now? I’ll be in the market for another vehicle in the next couple of years and an F250...

    How do you guys shave?

    I switched from cartridge razors to a safety razor a few months back and love it. It’s a little more time consuming and at took a little to get the technique right. But once I got it dialed in, it’s just as close, if not closer of a shave. The upfront cost of the razor and blades was obviously...

    Is this salvageable?

    This is the hood of my wife’s Suburban. Not sure how it happened. Doesn’t look like normal Florida sun wear and tear. And we don’t use drive through car washes. But here we are. Can this be salvaged? What does it need? Paint correction? Clay bar? Complete repaint? Also, how much should I expect...

    Anyone considering an Explorer ST?

    Test drove one today and was very impressed. I think they nailed the exterior looks and the interior was very well laid out. I know the tablet interface is getting a lot of hate, but I love it. The move from bench seat to captains’ chairs is a game changer. As someone that uses the 3rd row and...

    Considering 2016-18 Cherokee Trailhawk. Thoughts?

    My needs have shifted and find myself more in need of an SUV than a pickup. Ideally, I'd like an Expedition EL (or Max as they are now called) but even used, well equipped 2016+ models are out of my price range. So I find myself in the market for a mid-size SUV. I like both the Edge and CX-5...

    Anyone looking forward to Anthem? (video game)

    I’m interested in getting into the online multiplayer co-op shooter genre but I feel like I’ve missed the boat on Destiny and The Division series (I know The Division 2 is coming out soon, but I’m talking ground floor on a new IP) and god only knows when Borderlands 3 is coming out. Everything...

    Alec Steele: My new favorite YouTube channel

    I found myself in a YouTube vortex the other day and somehow ended up on this channel by some British wunderkind that is making some awesome videos about blacksmithing. He pretty much does it all, but seems to specialize in Damascus steel. The first link is to his channel and the second one was...

    Opinions on Googe Chromebooks

    Looking for something portable that will be limited to word processing, creating power points and spreadsheets, and internet browsing. How is Chrome OS? Does it work offline or is the Chromebook nothing more than a brick without wifi? (I did a search and found a thread on the topic from May...

    AntiVirus recommendations

    I have been using AVG AntiVirus Free for years and thus far, it has served me well. Well, last night, AVG notified me of a threat and recommended a full computer scan. After the scan, it revealed 215 threats (all under the same name, some sort of "rootkit"). I contacted them and they located the...

    Silicone wedding bands. Qalo or Groove?

    I've been looking into getting a silicone wedding band for a while but haven't gotten around to ordering it. Does anyone wear them? Any input on either Qalo vs Groove? Is one better than the other? Do the carvings in the Groove really make a cooling difference? Or is it 6 in one, half a dozen in...

    Evolve relaunched as Evolve: Stage 2 on Steam as F2P. Anyone else playing?

    I thought the original Evolve looked pretty cool but never got around to picking it up . When I finally decided to, everything I read was that it was a complete flop and to not waste my time and money. Well they completely revamped it and relaunched it as a F2P game (currently in Beta) on Steam...

    Credit cards with cash back or points?

    What type of credit card rewards do you guys tend to lean towards? What are the benefits of one over the other? I've never really given any thought to either until recently. But then I purchased a fairly expensive item using points and my eyes were open. I know that it's going to vary from card...

    Who's picking up Forza 6?

    I made the move from console to PC about 3 years ago and haven't looked back since. I have been very pleased with every genre except racing. I had high hopes for Project CARS, but was left somewhat disappointed. And I'm not looking for something with a subscription like iRacing. So a couple...

    Recommend me a quality single ear headset.

    I've got a couple of different headsets (Turtle Beach X11 and Kingston HyperX) and they are great, but with a wife and kid, I always have to keep an ear out. So I end up leaving one ear cup off and it's not comfortable nor does it always stay in place. Plus, with anything in stereo, I miss out...

    Need help finding a power seat switch

    Does anyone have a part number for the power seat switch? My knob snapped off some time ago and since I'm going back to DD'ing it soon, it's time to get it fixed. I assumed that it was just the 2 philips head screws, pull it out and unplug the connector. But when I went to my parts department at...

    Anyone playing Project CARS?

    I've been following it for a while and have got to say that I'm pretty impressed. I've been looking for a good racing sim on the PC for as long as I've made the switch from console gaming (about 2 years). I'm very happy with the physics and racing layout (practice, qualifying, then race...
