My first thought too. I just don't see this going well.

It's not just the charity per se. It's the subject matter itself. And that will be my last post on this thread.

I think there are enough environmental forums out there if anyone wants to continue this discussion.
Cheers

I think the topic is relevant to RVing ( might want to discuss towing with an electric vehicle too ). I don't see it as political unless you deny climate change.
In the future, you may not be able to buy a tow vehicle that will tow a trailer. If that isn't relevant, I don't know what is.

Don't get me going on carbon taxes and carbon offsets. If I said what I think of them I'd be banned for life.

I have wondered, if people travel by car and trailer instead of plane, what the difference is on energy consumption. If there were a plane-load of people in the average-sized plane used in NA, how much energy does the plane use instead of those people going by TV and trailer, or just going by car.

I suppose the plane is less, but the trip is shorter and completely different. Nothing is seen with the plane.

A big percentage of RV owners simply go from Point A to Point B and stay there, and back again. They do not travel as many of us do.

Yes, an electric TV occurred to me but those are too small for our Escapes.

I'd have more to offer if the title was Cleaning RV instead of Clean RVing
