RE: The Church Book - Camping Mexico's Baja

Nice write ups!!! As for the Moon book: Years ago we had the latest Moon book and it really was 10 years out of date. They simply added a few things and kept all the old Info. We still buy Lonely planet for local info such as restaurants. For culture information the AAA book is not bad. Free if you are a member. Now that you are writing about Baja you need to go to the mainland and give us more reviews! Moisheh

RE: Quick Truck Question

The ability to find something on Google does not always represent reality. Isuzu diesels are nothing like a Duramax. Cummins will carry some parts for the engines used in combines, pumps and generators. Dodge Rams are not exactly the same. The most common problems with diesels in PU's are fuel or emission related. The Mexican emission systems are totally different. Don't know about the fuel system. I would not go to Mexico expecting that parts are everywhere. If you are lucky and find something: GREAT. Today's dealerships use a computer tht is connected to the Mfrs. mainframe. The software resides in Mexico city or maybe Monterrey. If your vehicle was never sold in Mexico they usually cannot access the info. The ECM's are totally different. Any decent shop can read trouble codes but that is only a diagnosis not a repair.

RE: Hurricane warning for southern Baja & Mazatlan

The best fisherman in our area tells me there are fish here that no one recognizes. Normally they stay where the water is warmer. But our sea temps are very high. Heck the outdoor temp is 84 right now and has been close to that for the last 4 days! Normal is more like 70. Moisheh

RE: Thanksgiving in Mexico

The farther North you get the more it becomes like the USA. Last week the Mexicans( the wealthy) were all buying Turkeys @ Costco. They even make stuffing. Moisheh

RE: Lube pumps for towing

don: Where did you see that tidbit? Maybe it was just someone's wishful thinking? Those new trannies help Honda with fuel efficiency. More mfrs. are using that type of transmission every year. AFAIK there is no way to make that tranny towable. I hope I am wrong! Moisheh

RE: Lube pumps for towing

Although the Lube pump is a good piece of equipment unless something has changed the warranty sucks. I think you have to either send them the tranny or they have someone inspect it. I just remember it is a hassle. Moisheh

RE: 2016 Ford Ranger

2016 Ranger I was unable to get any photos of that Ranger. The dealership is on a busy 6 lane street and there was no parking. I will try early one morning next month. Robert Ryan: You keep talking about the 2015. The new Ranger is a 2016. If you dig around the link I provided there is only one engine listed. The 2.5 Litre Eco Boost. Maybe the Diesel is coming later but diesel PU's are rare in Mexico. Moisheh

50,000 people invade Kino. The highways are full of drunks and broken down vehicles! Moisheh

RE: Where to place TIP

I put our TIP on a piece of Plexi. One dab of silicone holds it to the windshield. If you sell the unit or break the windshield comes off in one piece. Moisheh

RE: Quick Truck Question

Why do posters insist that all diesel PU's are sold in Mexico? NOT TRUE. As Tequila stated the Chevs are not sold in Mexico. Lots of things are made in Mexico but not sold here. If you have a Ford or Dodge the Mexico version will NOT have a DPF nor DEF. The parts for those systems will not be easily obtained. If anything is going to go wrong with a diesel PU it is the emission system. This applies to Mexico and NOB ! Most auto dealers that are close to the border are "connected" with a US dealer. When they need US parts a Nextel phone gets them a direct line to the USA and the parts can be had in a few days. otherwise they order from the MFR. who ships first to Mexico city and then via a courier to the dealer. Can take weeks or more. Repeated usage of a US vehicle using Mexican Magna can plug the catalytic convertor. Seems to happen more with vehicles from the early 2000's. Using Premium alleviates that problem. Magna is loaded with sulfur. Sometimes Magna will leave deposits on sensors. Moisheh

RE: 2016 Ford Ranger

Robert Ryan: I am confused by your post. Some typos make it worse. The 2016 Mexican Ford Ranger is not a diesel. It is a 4 cylinder and looks like the Rangers from SA. No Mexican diesel engines are EPA certified. There is no ULSD in Mexico. No Mexican diesel vehicles have DEF. Moisheh On Edit: Baja does have ULSD and some border stations.

RE: IF Class A pusher needs to be towed off highway

Apparently Monaco does not want you to tow a tag axle Roadmaster. Flat bed only. Otherwise you can suffer damage to the rear frame area. Moisheh

RE: New Oaxaca campground

I would not consider Ioverland "cutting edge" More of a Wiki than a replacement for Church's book. More CG's missing than ones that are listed. Almost nothing for Kino. On this forum I doubt there is anyone looking for a tent friendly CG. They list Oaxaca RV park as closed. Not so! I could not find that new park in the listing. Church's book is written so that a person who has never been to Mexico could use that book and a map and have a great time. Lists things to do and places to see, A real description of the CG's not some tenter's opinion. Sorry but I think it needs a lot more. Moisheh

RE: Quick Truck Question

Do not expect to find a dealership with the software, parts or the knowledge to work on a USA PU with a diesel. The diesels that are sold in Mexico are more like a 2006 USA truck. No ULSD or DEF required. But I think they do use an EGR system. Moisheh

RE: Streets and Trips Alternative for Mexico?

This subject come up on forums for both RV'rs and Truckers. Short answer is there is nothing equal to S& T. I am lucky to have bough the last version. Moisheh

RE: DeMartini Sales-Service-Grass Valley, CA

demartini used to be a great place to buy a MH. Service was never their forte. Now even the sales dept. has a bad reputation. Most of the units are just auction vehicles. Moisheh

RE: Scam or bureaucratic nonsense at 28th parallel

In many of the small villages there are persons without any official documents. They may have been what we used to call illegitimate children or they never were baptized or their parents were very uneducated. If the Church never filed any papers you really do not exist. No pension, no voting rights, no dispensas and more. Very sad. Moisheh

RE: Scam or bureaucratic nonsense at 28th parallel

The Senior workers at the Supers are not working for fun. They either receive no pension or one that is very small. They should not be working but need that money to survive. This is another example of a government not meeting the needs of the people. Meanwhile there are thousands of retired or dead people still drawing a salary. Moisheh

RE: Crossing border into U.S. from Vancouver with 39' MH

rk 911: I have crossed in an 18 wheeler twice this year And once in our MH. The customs people are rude and almost obnoxious. In our 45 years of RVing and crossing into the US this was the only border where they treat you with disrespect. Was the same last year. In most other crossings it is just the opposite. Moisheh
