RE: Satellite question

There are HDMI/coax converters but they are expensive. You can find them on Amazon or any really really good electronics store. Maybe cheaper to replace the coax to the TVs with HDMI cables. Does the receiver have RCA connectors? If it does you can get a converter/combiner. This is what I did. Much cheaper, easier to use and find. BUT the combiner/converter needs 110v. OR if box has RCA connectors, replace coax with RCA cables. RCA is better than HDMI. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Seek advice about towing my car behind my A-Class

I doubt you will be able to dolly with the rear wheels as the front flaring / air dam is too low and will be tore off soon or later. Simply jack up the rear of the car as high as it would be if on a dolly. Then check the front to see how close the front flaring/air dam is to the ground. Remember it will be even closer going thu a dip. We had the same problem with our BMW. Had to use a trailer with all 4 off the ground as they do not make base plates or trans pumps for the these cars either. We finally got rid of the BMW and went to a Ford C-max Hybrid as it could be towed 4 down. Using the trailer was a PITA to store when in a park. 4 down is the best way to go IMHO! rocmoc n AZ

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

The SW deserts of the USA offer a lot of interesting places and spending the rest of our lives just visiting those wouldn't exactly be a penalty. So if it costs just as much to go into MX plus having to put up with the paperwork, the corruption, the bad roads, the potential for danger and crappy RV parks we're probably going to pass. Sure, there are crappy RV parks in the US, and it can be expensive, and there is corruption and potential for danger here, too but since it's our native culture (and language) we can mitigate a lot of it because we understand how it works. For many RVers who do not understand how it works in Mexico that can be a big issue. So it's the total package is that would deter us. The cumulative annoyance of all of that would do it. And perception, just as often as not, becomes the reality. WDR Agree, for the same price, with all the problems you mention, I do not know if I will take the plunge and go to Mexico. In the US, I have many many places to visit yet, even if I did put 60,000 miles in the last two years 1/2 traveling across, up and down. But again, there are many different things to see in Mexico and I would like to see it, even at the same price. You guys hit the nail on the head. Plus if you throw in the ability to boondock and stay at National & State Parks, the Southwest starts looking mighty good. Those of us who have the Senior Pass for the National Parks think twice about going any place else. We will watch the weather and move to the warmest location, maybe the desert outside Yuma. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

Wow one of the few times I don't agree Moisheh. I don't think anyone was being a snob or said anything bad about Rocky Point or any other part of Mexico. People just pointed out there is a difference between Rocky Point & Mainland Mexico and today vs 5 years ago. AND of course this post is ALL IMHO!!!!!!!!!! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

no matter where you go you will be a victim ..... poor babies .....travel smart dont be a dumass....... good grief! A lot of people of said they still love Mexico but conditions have changed in Mexico that have led them to rethink their trips down. Nothing is wrong with that. You are in Mexico Light so what you experience and/or offer is different than Villa Corona, an off the path location or Real Mexico offer. You don't have to deal with the border crossing hassle that is required to go into Real Mexico. Visiting Rocky Point does not requiring purchasing over priced fuel as most RVs can reach RP with the fuel purchased in USA and return. You don't have any tolls (yet) to RP which nearly doubles your per mile cost of travel into Real Mexico. The road to RP is built to USA standards which is not the norm in the rest of Mexico. Our livelihood is not dependent on the tourist & RVer so we can be very objective. Do hope you have a very profitable season as Mexico needs every successful business and business person it has. It is like the saying, "I love you but I am not in love with you", so the divorce goes forward. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: RV Tourism in Mexico

We have always RV'd SOB for one main reason, the weather. That has not changed. BUT we are having more difficulty in justifying the trip as cost rise, more safety concerns, dengue fever and the pain of crossing the border in both directions. Honestly we are looking at more options NOB in the Southwest, Texas & Florida. OR even staying home since our Brick & Mortar home is Southern AZ. It is Sad as we have loved our adventures in Mexico. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Rainbow Village - Largo Fla.

We stayed at West Bay Oaks, http://westbayoaks.com/ a couple of winters ago. Was much much nicer than what the reviews say and would stay again. It is also a Passport park, http://www.passportamerica.com/campgrounds/fl/westbayoaksrvpark2892 and was a deal. Check it out! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Safe passage thru Mexico

Not as you have been told but Corporate has a responsibility to error on the side of your safety. There are many places in the States where you would / could be at more risk. As anywhere there is a large population of people there is a need to use common sense and watch out for thugs & scams. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Super Storm in North Pacific

Saw on Good Morning America weather this morning that a HUGE Super Storm is in the North Pacific. They were already warning about the early sub-Zero weather that will hit North America in the near future. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/remnant-typhoon-nuri-headed-aleutian-islands-26746206 rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Destination alternatives to Mazatlan?

El Mirado in Playa Hautabampito, Sonora Mexico with day trip to Alamos,http://www.ontheroadin.com/Mexico%20West%20Coast%202011/El%20Mirador%20Hotel.htm . Food is incredible at El Mirdado but cannot go in the water. We have traveled SOB just to stay in a B&B in Alamos. Worth a stop if any of the Campgrounds are still open http://www.ontheroadin.com/Mexico%20West%20Coast%202011/Real%20de%20los%20Alamos.htm http://www.ontheroadin.com/Mexico%20West%20Coast%202011/Dolisa%20Motel%20and%20RV%20Park.htm. Alamos can be very romantic if you play your card right!!!:@ :B rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: RV parts in Guaymas?

Hate to say it Steve but your best bet is to run back to Tucson. You will lose two days but that maybe the best choice. Look at the silver lining, you are still within one day of Tucson. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
