RE: Camping Florida for 1st time

Florida State Parks are some of the best. Don't over look them but you will need reservations. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Rocky Point or San Felipe?

As a first trip you will enjoy either. San Felipe is a little bit more expensive with more camping choices. Rocky Point is a short drive in Mexico. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: To solar or not to solar? That is the question....

Installing solar is a lifestyle choice as it is always cheaper to run your gen if you already have one (I did investment cost studies in my working days). If you have to purchase a gen the economics are closer but still cheaper to purchase a gen and run. After traveling around Mexico a few times the only wildlife you will find 99% of the time is noisy chickens & dogs and personally my gen is quieter. I do agree with carrying a battery charger with you and mine has come in handy a couple of times. As a secondary note if you are a full-timer then the solar is more practical but at best a push. What do you do if you don't have sun for a few days, run the gen! There goes the economics again. I would love to be able to justify an installation on our RV but since most of the time I have a motocross bike & 4X4 with me the quiet is lost anyway. Best / least expensive at this time is run the gen in the daylight hours and use your batteries in the evening & night hours, IMHO! Sooner or later you will use shore power so get a power protection device as was discussed here about a month ago. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Quartzsite

Grows by over a million in the winter season? And I have some swamp land in FL to sell you as well! :-) There is pretty good reason for many of the negative comments; I did not make any but would tell you - living in AZ and been by there plenty - I would not spend a night there; not one. But to each their own. I have a different opinion and also live in Southern AZ. Quartzsite is an adventure you should include on your bucket list. Have been there before and am going again. Keep an open mind, try it & you will like it! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Trading up to Diesel

Most important is, Purchase what you can afford. Second is, Motorhomes are a bad investment so spend no more than you are willing to lose in depreciation in the future. So find the best deal you can. Finally after you purchase, Forget everything I have post and ENJOY! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Florida to Arizona

August heat is not as bad as June heat in Phoenix. Once the Monsoon Season has started it is cooler. BUT now you have to watch out for Thunder Storms and the wind they produce. This is true all the way along I10 in the summer. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Convoy to Tucson Az

We have traveled / RV'd across the country many times. There is no reason you need to travel in numbers because of safety. If you just want to, that is different. Do make sure you have some kind of road service, eg Good Sam, CoachNet or something. You will have a ball. Don't worry, enjoy! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico ( near Tucson!)

RE: Power Protection Device, Do you?

Thanks for the responses. Pushed me to do something so yesterday I purchased this, http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/portable-50-amp-surge-protector-with-voltage-protection/56422 . rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

OK so I finally agree and just purchased a , http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/portable-50-amp-surge-protector-with-voltage-protection/56422. What else do I need? After a little thought, we still need power protection even if we have solar as we are not always dry camping. Still enjoy a good campground! Now if the OP had used the Progressive Protection Device, would he still had his burn up? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Power Protection Device, Do you?

Do you use a Power Protection Device when you hookup to power (anywhere, not just in a campground)? And what type? Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

Sounds like solar with the gen as backup is the way to go! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

We have run into many people in Mexico who have had to disconnect circuit protection devices because they are just too sensitive and refuse to pass current most of the time. We have never used one and have overnighted in RV parks in every state of Mexico without a problem. I remember to use my multimeter or simpler plug in device sometimes but not always. We too have ran into the same. Stayed at one of the better parks in Kino near a high end coach that could not keep the power connected. We had no problem but had no power protection. This has been the primary reason we have not coughed up the dollars for a power protection device. We have considered going the solar route and not connecting at all as you can't use your AC in most the RV parks in Mexico anyway! So wouldn't the dollars be better spent on solar than on power protection? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

Which is better the Progressive Industries RV Power Protection Device or the Hughes Autoformer? Or the same? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: New Map!

What I found interesting was the two reported cases of Dengue Fever in Nogales, Son., MX of which is near where I live in So. AZ. Worked outside this morning and sprayed myself with a good Deet spray. NOTHING has been in the local News (Tucson or Nogales, AZ) about dengue fever being on our doorstep. Tho cases were reported on our local News of the first cases in Florida. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

New Map!

Just found this site today, healthmap.org. More info than most will want. It is a health map of the world that can be zoomed-in to a single country, region or town. http://healthmap.org/en/ rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Insurance Shopping

Nationwide here. I always shopped around every couple of years. With RVs I have only found Progressive & Nationwide to be competitive in my part of AZ. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

When reading posts during my searches I read that CoachNet had added nearly all the same features as GS TravelAssist to their roadside service Platinum Plus plan, http://coach-net.com/assistamerica/CNETAssistAmerica.pdf . This is great since we already have this plan so at least we have some coverage! We carry this plan because it covers trailers and there are times we are pulling a car trailer with the Jeep on it to Utah (just in case I break it playing in the slick rock). rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
