RE: Stop Guesswork Different Banks Different Tipos de Cambios

I noticed all the Ricos with their cell phones scanning goods at Costco. Mexico has gone from a country where less than 30% of the homes had phones to where almost everyone has a cell phone. Even in the little villages they all have phones. The phones are cheap and the service costs have gone way down. for 100P I get 21 days of service. Includes unlimited calls, texts and 300mb of data. You can call to and from any of the 3 countries. I find that there are lots of dead zones in AZ. I buy extra data and it is inexpensive. I bought a no name Lanix big screen. I forget the exact cost but around $1600P. Moisheh

RE: Stop Guesswork Different Banks Different Tipos de Cambios

Thanks Navegator. I tried 2 nites with just Supridol but am about to give my soul back to the Devil. No wonder I did a lot of bad things in my youth but drugs was never one of them. Peyote was a favorite of Cheech and Chong! BTW: Anyone looking for a major appliance today was the beginning of Buen Fin, Mexico's answer to Black Friday. Ends sometime next week. Costco was a zoo today. Fridges stacked up all over the store. I saw some excellent prices. Moisheh

RE: What documentation is needed to rv in the Mexican free zone

The OP should start over: Tell us about your rig. Then where you would like to go and for how long AS Russ posted Kino and San Carlos are not part of the free zone. They are in the no hassle zone. Different rules. Good questions get good answers. Moisheh

RE: What documentation is needed to rv in the Mexican free zone

You will need the 10 year RV permit in the no hassle zone. But no deposit(bond). There is no charge for the good times! Moisheh

RE: New trailer, on line new 10 year TIP problem

It has to be an RV. NO UTILITY trailers. But sometimes you can put a small trailer on your vehicle permit. Moisheh

RE: What documentation is needed to rv in the Mexican free zone

You should explain what you mean by the free zone. Where will you be going and what do you have for an RV? Have you looked at the excellent articles at the beginning of this forum? Lewis and Lewis are my choice for insurance. Moisheh

Must be the drugs affecting the exchange rate. Some authors can really write a story while under the influence ! Moisheh

RE: New trailer, on line new 10 year TIP problem

Please correct me if this is wrong: If a trailer and truck are crossing the truck gets a regular 6 month TIP. BUT the trailer gets a 10 year TIP. Trailer has to be an RV. Not a utility trailer. Moisheh

RE: US Gear power module failure (Unified Tow Brake system)

It is a great system but that module is the weak point. Our system is about 12 years old and am on the second module. Luckily I bought a couple of used systems so have lots of spare parts. Moisheh

RE: Colonial Cities and big RV'S do not mix

We once stayed on a Hotel parking lot near La Ventana. There was a large field next to the parking lot wall. In the morning an Ox Cart pulled up. They unhitched the cart and attached a one share plough. A young boy with a canvas bag followed the plough and he sowed seeds into the furoughs and kicked the soil over the seeds. I watched in amazement. Was like stepping back in time. We left later that morning and a half mile down the road there was a John Deere articulated tractor ploughing a multi acre field. I didn't know John Deere made that type of tractor. Could have been locally modified. From ancient to ultra modern in 1/2 a mile!! Moisheh

RE: Stop Guesswork Different Banks Different Tipos de Cambios

Talleyho: I think you are speaking of Jennifer. She was the moderator for years. She was from Chicago and was the editor of a law journal. We stayed at her house once. The Dogs were quite tame. It was her Mother's house and was complete with an elevator. Nexconnect gave up on the annual fee. The forum owner was a Canadian. He was trying to sell the forum a few years ago. They had the most interesting articles. Moisheh

RE: Stop Guesswork Different Banks Different Tipos de Cambios

My posts are based on my own experiences as well as neighbor's. When we first came to Mexico I was not fully retired. My wife would be here all winter and I frequently returned to Canada. Being a businessman I immediately opened up a bank account as a safe haven for cash. Big mistake. No ATM's. When she needed money had to drive 30 miles to the bank. Line up outside for withdrawals. At noon they closed the withdrawal wickets until the next day1 We left about 1000 pesos in the account at the end of the season. peso was around 4 to the dollar. When we returned in the fall it was half gone. They charged a fee if the account got too low!! She also had a CETES account. It renewed every month but you had to come on the last day and stand in line to renew! Worst bank I have ever seen! I do know people that tried to open accounts but were told to get an FM3. As for plastic : You would starve in Kino if you only had plastic! Neither the CFE nor the municipality will take foreign credit cards to pay online. We have been in the Guad market and they would take plastic for expensive items. BUT only if you paid a 5% fee. Contractors in HMO do the same. I asked why and the explanation was that the banks charge merchants horrendous commissions. Regardless if one has a US or Canadian CC the home bank charges a foreign exchange fee. There are a few that forego that fee: Amazon and Charles Schwabb come to mind.I do not pay any ATM fees imposed my bank. Just the 20 +pesos to use the ATM. Moisheh

RE: Mordida in Hermosillo

Sometimes these are not actually traffic rules. Just a way of getting mordida. Transitos are the lowest form of LEO's. I doubt they have ever read the traffic laws. Federal police are the real thing. They remind me of Mounties or Highway Patrols. Professionals! Moisheh

RE: Colonial Cities and big RV'S do not mix

Great advice. One year we entered one of the small villages and it was market day. They had the main street closed off. We were in a CC duallie with a 12 ft. camper! I started to back up but a local had parked his ox cart complete with 2 oxen in the middle of the street. We laughed when my wife asked him to please move his oxen!! Moisheh

RE: RV Park Price Survey

I have never been able to understand the commerce involved with ATM's It seems the location of the machine affects the fees and the exchange rate. I often wonder if the Banks pay a commission to the owner of the property? Fees for the same bank vary from one location to another. I have seen Scotiabank ATM's at an OXXO that charged around 80 pesos to use the machine and had a very low withdrawal limit. Mexican banking laws are quite different than those in Canada or the USA.

RE: Stop Guesswork Different Banks Different Tipos de Cambios

I cannot think of worse advice than for an RV'r to open a bank account in Mexico. Mexican distrust the banks for very good reasons. Some banks will not open accounts for anyone with just an FMM. In the small villages they do not accept plastic. We cannot pay our water bill or taxes with plastic. Most of the small restaurants here do not take plastic. Some will take CC's but charge a fee. How would an RV'r get the cash into a bank account. They do not take foreign checks. Cash is king! The banks are almost thieves! If you LIVE in MEXICO and get a Mexican salary then a bank account is a good idea. Moisheh

RE: Spare Tire carrier

There are plans for a Frtliner chassis underslung carrier. Why bother with a wheel. Get road service to change the spare tire on you existing wheel. Moisheh
