By that token, even though I'm an engineer by training and profession, virtually everything I post here is opinion, because I didn't crunch any numbers.

I tend to assume that the same is true for almost everyone elseó I will believe Lewster implicitly when it comes to all things electrical, but that's one of the few exceptions.

We need to learn to disagree gracefully. We gain more from doing so than either capitulation, bowing out, or taking things to a overtly personal level.
Oh yes. I swear there are people here that are constantly scanning for things to be annoyed at. I just want to say, Wow, relax.

John how many times are you going to keep changing your user name? That's getting confusing.

Ha ha, I love this Forum but the OP's not going to get a definitive answer on anything! Well, almost nothing.

I enjoy reading everyone's experiences and their opinions, no matter how diverse. The world would surely be a poorer place if everyone agreed and did everything the same way. Perhaps we should be calling the the Forum "The Airstream Spectrum"?

IMHO FWIW YMMV.

But on the serious side, for me it's all a chance get some sightseeing, campfire and cooking time.

Did gas vs diesel make it to the top ten over discussed unanswerable questions? What about magnetic brakes (yuck) vs 16 piston hydraulics!

See ya round the campfire.

Diesel vs Gas might as well be like discussing football.

You've got that right! Both of these things put me to sleep during the first few minutes of the game!
