RE: Beware the taxman

Nothing has changed as far as the rules from the IRS. EXCEPT it is niow easier for them to nail cheaters. They have always had the option of turning away Canadians suspected of over spending time in the USA. They really do not have to check any shared information. If the fellow at US customs dos not like you he can simply send you back because he thinks you will be staying in the USA. That form has ben around for years. Canadians who follow the rules have no worries. Interseting that the net is full of articles on this subject lately. Almost all of the stories come out of BC!!! Moisheh

RE: Turning in your FMM

But if they do not give you a receipt the system is flawed ! You have no way of proving that it was returned. And if you say it was turned in they have no way of proving you wrong. I will have a better idea next fall as I know a few who do not return the forms. Moisheh

Turning in your FMM

This has been discussed beforeand many of us thought that because they have computerized the forms you should stop and turn in your FMM when leaving. I think we are all wrong. Ours were expired by 3 days but we stopped to return them anyway. The Migra guy looked at me as if I was nuts. They were folded and he took them and stamped the back. Then threw them into a box. He never looked at the face of the permit. Nor did he give us a receipt of any kind. No info was entered into the computer nor did he ask for our passports. I would bet they get tossed ! BTW. If a few units arrive there is no place to park on the Northbound side of the highway!! Moisheh

RE: How to repair "wing" window Mechanism?

The op should post this in a Fleetwood specific forum. The mechanism is really not designed to be fixed but I have seen reports of a workaround. It is not sturdy like the link provided above. Moisheh

FW uses a very poor window. The gearbox is junk. I was never able to repair mine. Moisheh

RE: New Monaco Diplomat Nightmare

Chris: Which Navistar POS is in your unit? Some Navistar power plants have serious problems with the DPF system. Truckers won a lawsuit over this issue. I though that the engine used in the MH's was OK?? Moisheh

RE: CoachNet changes??

I wrote them and got a n answer to some other question. They avoided any explanations. I have googled to see if there are any other service providers but it is a joke. Other than your own insurance company the rest are hopeless. Moisheh

RE: CoachNet changes??

down home: Good idea but it is not going to happen. CoachNet was almost what you described but something happened. I think they amalgamated with another company. Even GS could not do this on their own and they use Allstate. That is scary. If you have a Class C or smaller any of the providers would be OK. But if you need a Class 8 tow truck with a proper wheel lift or a drop deck there are only a few that can help. CoachNet can do this. GS used to have that capability but I wonder if they can do this now? To those who talk of having spares and tools. Not everyone has the space for a large 200 lb. wheel and tire. Or even just the tire. Many posters do not have the mechanical ability nor the strength to handle the tire/rim. One should also be aware that the most dangerous place on any highway is the side of the road. Do you really want to change a tire on the Drivers side while your butt is sticking out on the road? Good way to die. EMS have pylons, flashing led lights and they are aware of the danger. You also need at least 2 jacks. Not for me! Moisheh

RE: CoachNet changes??

et2: Thank you for that post. I was NOT interested in stories about one of the services being great or bad! I was interested in finding out about CN's plans. I did send them a message. Moisheh

CoachNet changes??

I have had ERS for over 25 years, I started with Good Sam and it was alright. Used it once. Switched to CoachNet through FMCA a few years later. I have used it maybe 3 times. One was a tow in Mexico that cost over $400. It was covered. I have had zero complaints with the service. BUT: Things have changed. FMCA dropped Coach Net. Coach Net modified and renamed their plans to where it is like buying aluminum siding. Almost a scam. I always had the Platinum plus which has very good coverage. It is pricey at $129.50. They will renew at that price. But if you go online and look at the offered plans they show a Ltd.,Basic and Premium. The Basic looks like the Platinum Plus but it is only $89.00??? What gives? Who's on first? Very Confusing. I am almost tempted to switch over to GS but worry the service will not be the same. Moisheh

RE: Permit for Toad and RV - Owner

Kidoo: Be cautious in reading some of the online info re border crossing. Ay the end of your post you referenced a web site that is run by one of our forum members. I would not accept his info as gospel! In the end it is up to the agent to determine whether you need more paperwork or 2 permits, etc. Same in the USA and Canada. In Mexico many of the rules are politically motivated. The Auto dealers want to make bringing in foreign vehicles very difficult. It's all about the $$$. Truck campers are not vehicles and do NOT fall under the legislation for cars, trucks and RV's. Apparently one agent insisted that a camper needed a permit. But hundreds cross into Mexico with no permits. You will find that the sticky in this forum by Turtle Toad is well researched. Moisheh

RE: Workhorse 8.1 liter poor fuel mileage

Lots of fairy tales when it comes to MPG. But have you hooked up a scan gauge to see if there are any trouble codes? maybe have a good shop have a look. You still will not get 8 plus mpg! Moisheh

RE: Permit for Toad and RV - Owner

Rv's can only get a 10 year permit. Cars have always had 180 day permits. Moisheh

RE: Mexico hands ourt 13 million digital TVs

If they hand out the TV's like they hand out dispensas most of the recipients are party members who are far from poor. There has been criticism that the TV's are of poor quality. Same problem with all the free laptops. They run some strange software. There is no tech support and the laptops are junk! Besides many of the schools do not have an internet connection and most that do have a connection cannot handle more than a few laptops being used at the same time. Governments should stick to law making!! Moisheh

RE: 04/04/2015 San Quintin

Mex: You are way off. I assume you were being sarcastic when you spoke of cheap produce in Canada. Maybe you should have mentioned the Mexican farmers in Sonora and Sinaloa who treat their workers like slaves. I somehow doubt they are all Canadian. Next thing Mex is going to sing Woody's " Deportees". Calma te. Chris is right on. Don't sit in the background give it to them!!! Is Mex the reincarnation of Cesar Chavez ! Excuse me while I suck on a Mexican tomato! Moisheh
moisheh 04/07/15 05:19pm RVing in Mexico and South America

Russ's posts illustrate how the border personnel actually have a lot of power. They often make their own rules. To call a caravan a commercial vehicle is ludicrous! I was at the Nogales crossing about 3 year ago. Lots of construction. They had built a temporary chain link fence with the barbed wire brackets installed backwards. The fence was not straight . As I entered the brackets scraped the top of the left side of the unit. The Jersey barriers prevented me from moving to the right. I stopped immediately to assess the situation. 3 Gestapos came up to my unit and told me to move ahead. I told him I cannot as my unit will be damaged. He gave me a choice: You will either move ahead or we are going to arrest you and have a tow truck move your unit. I moved and it cost my insurance company $10,000. I later learned that a 5th wheel also damaged his unit. Later that week the fence was moved! Moisheh

RE: RVing into Bahia LA

navigator: By law no foreign company can sell liability insurance in Mexico When they extend coverage into Mexico it covers comprehensive, etc. American policies also do not cover legal fees. If you read Turtle Toads excellent sticky I think it covers this info. Anyone who travels into Mexico without liability insurance is looking for trouble. Moisheh
