    Anyone here go RV'ing?

    The real problem with any vehicle, including motorcycles and ATVs is that if you cannot fix and maintain it, you are at the mercy of a dealer and that can make any hobby expensive and frustrating.

    That sounds like a nightmare. I always thought that they were money pits based on fuel alone, and not practical because of maneuvering and parking. I liked the Class B Van, hopefully it is not such a disaster.

    Yep, my car takes premium at about $3.50 per gallon and diesel is about $3.20 to $3.30.

    The RV that I used gets 18 MPG and accelerates uphill. Small turbo diesel. That is a big selling point.

    No, only you so far...

    A car will hold together, even with a sunroof, trunk, doors, etc. but they are made by robots nowadays and QC is quite high on certain models (I have an old Lexus that is like new). RV's are still "hand made" so issues come up. The chassis on this is Mercedes and the insides are installed by Airstream. The penetrations are going to be the issue (like on a house) for the AC, solar power, etc. on the roof. I would expect the seams of the vehicle to hold together. I fixed about 5 or 6 interior items that were broken. Very easy for me to do as it was just using better screws, fashioning spacers, things like that. The owner should be happy. There is one item left but it needs an inexpensive part ordered. On the negative side, someone rear ended me in a roundabout so I will have to fix a small dent in the side of the bumper.

    Good advice. I did read the owner's manual. The van has a bath, kitchen and shower, but I want a bike rack to go biking when staying. My friend likes to stop and crash in hidden places. He loves it. The water thing is in the manual. The grey water is really nasty too. I had trouble emptying and then there was a line at the dump site so I finished in a bucket in my driveway. If you ever do any plumbing you know what the grey water is like. I put it down the toilet and it was gross. Stunk to all hell. Jeff, the manual did say something about the seals begin checked regularly. Hmmmm....

    Old School Beast Returns

    2002 is old school? Mine is a 2006 and still seems like a "new bike" to me.

    "Final" Configuration of System

    Is that an Empire TT? I have one un-restored but in great shape. What do you think of it? Looks like the stock arm. I love the high tech space age auto pickup at the end of the record.

    These look interesting

    I thought that these were your speakers, that is why I posted the ad. Those Jubilees are hard to miss.

    Sorry to hear this. He was always very knowledgeable and helpful to all. A class act and he will be missed.

    Uh, he was too lazy to re-veneer the doghouse and wants a premium for them...

    Klipsch orn Floor Standing Speakers

    I was going to buy these but then I saw these B&W 801 Matrix for $8300 on the same page: https://www.ebay.com/itm/B-W-MATRIX801-Series1-801M-Speaker-Pair-w-English-Manual-Date-Sheet-Jumper-Cable/263688649159?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D52473%26meid%3D77ac099fd1ed4ea6bf4f99eb9b1010ed%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D302760716899%26itm%3D263688649159&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982 Why do people list these so high? Ebay charges for ads, right? How is it worth their money and more over, their time to set up an ad.

    Check out the corner placement, I bet they sound fantastic, $9000 worth!
  19. I don't know much about this, but the buyout horns have a straight section and then a flare.

    A nice stack of LaScalas in Los Angeles

    If you plunk down $3K for a pair, make sure you don't get the one that is delaminting.
  21. How about the midrange horn? https://www.parts-express.com/sh450-2-horn-9-3-4-x-17-3-4-4-bolt--299-2305 Is this a big improvement over the K400? Compare to a tractrix?
  22. Anyone know the flare of the horns? Are they an improvement over the K400? Are they similar to the Tractrix?

    Klipsch Quintet 5.0 Home Theater Speaker System

    Yes, you must have a subwoofer with the Quintet
  24. Is this B52 a good replacement for the K33? https://www.parts-express.com/b-52-15-85-15-professional-woofer-8-ohm--299-2312 EDIT: I checked the Eminence Kappa 15 and this does not look like a good fit.
