There is a great deal of overlap in price between the Hummer and the F150.If price was the same, I would take the mustang over bolt and Hummer over both F150 and CT (I know this is going to put me on the crap list of many members but I just like the damn thing, it does not have to make sense)
I much prefer the low hood of the Cybertruck, but I do like the fact that the F150’s Frunk wraps around so it opens nearly flush with the base of the frunk so you don’t have this big basin you have to lift things into and out of.Cybertruck has the most cargo space. (well, cargo space that doesn't block your view of the road, anyhow.)
So uhh... It kinda wins for me. That's what I want a truck for.
I do like the Hummer style frunk (F150 stole it from Hummer) but I don’t mind lifting stuff a bit for CT. People have been doing it for sedans for years and we have not lost anyone yet because of it.I much prefer the low hood of the Cybertruck, but I do like the fact that the F150’s Frunk wraps around so it opens nearly flush with the base of the frunk so you don’t have this big basin you have to lift things into and out of.
But the under the vault storage and the sail pillar storage is pretty awesome.
Of course any time I start thinking of value, the air suspension is top of my mind. Being able to raise and lower the bed is the killer feature of killer features in a truck. I just can’t believe the people covering these trucks don’t talk about that at all.
just curious how it would be dangerous? it seems like everything would be protected and as long as you shut off the main you wouldn't electrocute the utility workers, but even installing a basic transfer switch, which I don't think is illegal or out of code carries the same risk. Obviously an automatic transfer switch removes that risk.
This is a manual transfer switch. It has a line in and a generator in via a plug in cord, the toggles between the two or turns it off.For someone who didn't understand electricity it could be very dangerous. Imagine someone having a live cable with two male ends and didn't understand how important it was to kill power before unplugging it, like any other power cable. Or didn't understand the danger of not flipping the circuit breakers in the correct order. Most of the things covered in codes are there because some got killed, or killed someone, doing it.
This would be the correct/legal way to do it, not the illegal shortcut we were discussing before.This is a manual transfer switch. It has a line in and a generator in via a plug in cord, the toggles between the two or turns it off.
The exposed male plug is inside the protected outlet box. The male plug is *never* live when it is exposed. When the switch is on line, there is no power to that plug. When the switch is on "GEN", the only power is coming from the power cord. If the power cord is plugged in, the male portion is covered and the live circuit is protected.
There is no order to flip breakers in.
There is another style where each breaker is switched separately, but even with that order doesn't matter. Each circuit is either running from the generator (battery/ truck in this case) or main power from the utility.
