RE: LED light bulbs and electricity savings question

We we replaced our RV lights with LED some months ago. I can't speak to the electricity savings issue but I can tell you that LEDs are MUCH brighter than the old lights. Don't know how the poster thought they were not good enough for reading. We need to use fewer lights on in the evening and sure the light over my chair is much better for reading. Maggy

RE: Who do you have insurance with?

National Interstate for our fiver as they specialize in full timers and have coverage not always offered by others especially full timers. They also cover Mexico as long as we purchase liability with a speciality Mexico insurance company and some others dont. Two claims with satisfactory outcomes and no premium increase. We use Hartford for our truck as they offer an AARP discount. This is our third truck cover company since we went full time. Same coverage but much cheaper.

RE: Taking your dog into Mexico?

We always travel with our dog and have always carried health certificates although have seldom been asked for them. As for the new law we will be sure to leash him in the back seat next time we cross. As an afterthought US Customs won't let you bring back more dog food than enough for one day. Maggy

RE: Things changing for the better

As Mike: that is just plain nasty. Did you get out of the wrong side of the bed? I live in Kino Bay in winter and often visit PP and San Carlos. Information on this site from other places is valuable and much appreciated whether or not it is exclusively RV related. Maggy

Paint

Not sure if this is the right place but here goes. We bought a motor that needs to be painted. It was used as a traveling office and has the company logo all over it. White letters on red paint. My question is does anyone know an approximate cost, ballpark, to paint a 30ft motor home. Maybe Hermosillo as we are based in Kino Bay. Moisheh, any ideas? One contact in Kino has suggested around $8,000 which seems very high. Maybe we will just leave it unpainted, Maggy

RE: TIP

Thank you. That's what I needed. Traveling with a pickup truck and mh. I know there is no charge for the truck. We have a TIP for our fiver. Its in my husbands name. Hoping we can get the TIP for the motor home in my name only. We will see when we cross. Thank you all for your help. Especially you Moisheh. See you when we get there but that's not planned till May boo hop. Maggy

RE: Kino Bay or Guaymas/San Carlos

We have a timeshare in San Carlos and used it for many years. We now spend our winters in Kino Bay. Given 2-3 weeks, I would follow the above post recommendations and split the time between both. If this is a hotel/car trip you won't need to worry about RV parks. The hotel in Guaymas is gorgeous and I would gladly stay there.

RE: Kino Bay or Guaymas/San Carlos

Hassle Free zone still exists, but you will need a visitors permit. As for the back road, it sure is bumpy, but interesting (watch out for animals etc on the road). But going into Hermo will take no longer as you can take the bypass around Hermo to SB 15.

RE: Trailer Tires, San Carlos?

If you want to order on line, DHL delivers to Mexico. We have had parts delivered by them from the US. Probably will deliver to Totonaka.

RE: language barrier

Never let a lack of language skills restrict you. The world is too big and too interesting not to travel anywhere. Lack of local language leads to all sorts of kindly and interesting people you would never have met if you had not travelled. Life is too short already. We spend winters in Mexico and have been going there for many years. Still have no strong language skills but we still communicate well with everyone. Except maybe some Americans lol. (I am British and they sometimes have a hard time understanding me.)

RE: Company in US which ships to Mexico

DSL ships to Mexico, but you would have to get the replacement to their offices. Maggy

RE: Just checking

we used volunteer.gov a lot. Go to the site, choose which state you want to go to, then click on the state. Shows state, federal, county parks etc. Be careful, some want more hours that others. Federal parks want 32 hours per site, Army Corps of Engineers varies according to where you are and what you do. We did this for 4-5 years. We are old enough that we don't want to clean toilets, our kids are grown up and we don't want to start again with that.
