RE: Price of gas is the least of the problems

There are lots of areas in Mexico where the dangers are almost non existant. But you have to get from here to there! When people get robbed on highway 15 from HMO to Guaymas that is a bad sign. We get El Imparcial delivered to the house. One has to be careful reading Mexican papers as they are very political and have an agenda. However within a 100 mile radius of HMO there are serious incidents almost daily. Usually it is Mayors and Police Chiefs but sometimes ordinary citizens get caught up in the fights. Bullets do not ask if you are a tourist. Our Bluebird is ready for the south but we will wait and see. At my age time is precious! Thanks for the comments on La Reina Gitana II. I am the 3rd owner. The first owner used it for his NASCAR statistics contract. He never ate in the unit. The microwave was never used. Some of the manuals are still in the factory plastic. Should really be in a museum!

Price of gas is the least of the problems

http://i67.tinypic.com/2qtzad4.jpg The above image is of our NEW 1988 Bluebird. We have not really travelled Mexico past Kino for a number of years. Mostly due to health problems. I am doing much better and for the last 12 months I have been looking for a nice unit that can withstand Mexican roads and Topes. Now that I finally have something I don't know if we will ever get to travel to the south. Our Mexican friends that often go to Maz for Semana Santa now fly as they are afraid of road travel. From Kino many do not travel beyond Guaymas. Without stirring up something against the rules crime is up double digits. The differences is not that crime is worse it is that the problem is not usually drug related. It is the common criminal or Wanabees. They jack cars, rob bus passengers and more. Even in old Kino robberies are on the rise. This normally Sleepy Hollow. We are considering selling our house and moving into one of the Trailer Parks. Some have closed and others are at less than 50% capacity. It is true that RV'rs are not normally the targets of professional criminals. But these 2 bit nut cases do not really care. RV travel in Mexico will just disappear. I am hoping that with the change of Government policing will become a priority. In the meantime we will go to Penasco, San Carlos and Arizona/ California . maybe some of the mission routes in Sonora. What a shame. Moisheh

Sometimes when your Telcel does not work it is because they do not have partner in that area. This applies to all cell services. Moisheh

RE: Northbound Nogales Crossing

I have the route instructions from some SC residents as well as Rocmoc from this forum. I will post them later this week. One person stated that they removed a number of the Jersey barriers on Sunday late PM. We are heading North next week and will post my experiences. Moisheh

Northbound Nogales Crossing

Crossing at Nogales has always been a little challenging. We have a 42 ft. mh and tow a full size truck. You can only use the RH Bus lane. Usually one of the vendors assists by stopping the traffic that is coming from downtown Nogales. However things have changed. beginning sometime in January the CBP installed concrete Jersey barriers to keep that downtown traffic in 2 lanes. They left one out for the highway 15 traffic to cross into the bus lane. But there is not enough room for larger RV's. I am hoping that the easiest solution would be to turn off the toll road and head towards the central part of Nogales. There has to be a road further up that would take you with that downtown traffic and pass under highway 15 directly to the bus lane. This is the route the buses use. Does anyone know how I get onto that route? Thanks Moisheh I know that some RV's can make that crossing but I doubt our unit can do this without damaging the unit.

RE: Hermosillo Libramiento Started!!

Nice to know you still read the forum. You have always been a friend to Rv'rs. Moisheh

RE: Trailer Search Observations

Talleyho: Did you cross at Nogales? I am wondering if the Border people removed one more Jersey barriers so that MH's can switch lanes? Moisheh

RE: Goodyear Tire Deaths for RVs

From one of the law firms that are/were suing GY: Lawyers in the section that handles Product Liability cases have handled several cases and learned that Goodyear’s own documents showed the company was aware the tire would fail when operated at highway speeds when used on RVs. Goodyear learned through numerous field complaints and failures that this tire was not safe for RVs. In fact, Fleetwood, one of the largest RV makers, instituted a recall in 1999 that mandated replacing the G159 tires on its large RVs. Despite Goodyear’s knowledge concerning the safety issues with the G159, it continued to sell the G159 as RV tires until 2003. RV mfrs. do not spec tires. They go to the tire mfr. and get specs and quotes. GY marketed these tires as RV tires knowing that this was false. And they kept that up for many years all along denying any liability!!!! Moisheh

RE: Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon

I test drove one and I still like the Silverado! The Colorado weighs just slightly less than a full size and the MPG is almost the same. I do not know if GM ever cured the shifting in or out of neutral problem. Moisheh

RE: Goodyear Tire Deaths for RVs

But this should be a warning to stay away from GY RV tires. The replacement for the 159's is the G670. Another GY piece of junk with no warranty!!! Moisheh

RE: GASAHOL Wanted Or Not

Before Magna the gasoline was iffy. Sometimes your car would run OK. Other times it would knock. Often the fuel was so bad your car would blow white smoke. But the diesel was great! Before the electronic pumps the gasero could wiggle the reset lever and it would start at the current pump reading!! Moisheh

RE: Please help with a tire question.

One should never buy tires from anything other than a tire dealer. RV dealers know nothing about tires and will charge you a lot of money. A Good year dealer can call the warehouse and request newer tires. Personally I would never buy GY tires.

RE: GASAHOL Wanted Or Not

You have to be careful with those figures. The discussion was on gasoline. Pemex hardly produces any premium fuel. They import almost all of the premium and lot of Magna as well. You are forgetting about diesel, kerosene, fuel oil and industrial products. In February 2018 they produced 164,000 barrels of gasoline. Personally I don't trust their statistics. Maybe Mex can jump in with more information. Moisheh

RE: residential refrigerator, how long will it run on batteries?

We have gone 24 hours but did not open the fridge. If needed you can set your auto start on the genie to come on. BTW: many do not realize that if your batteries are depleted it is not a good idea to start the MH and hit the road. Too hard on the alternator. You should run the genie and let the inverter do the charging for at least an hour. Moisheh

RE: GASAHOL Wanted Or Not

I read in the paper that Mexico has been importing Premium gas from not just the USA: Venezuala and 2 other countries. They are able to produce less than 2% of the Premium locally. alcohol gas is horrible stuff: less power, worse fuel mileage. AS well it leaves a larger carbon footprint than pure gasoline. I think that eventually Mexico will just give up on Pemex. What a shame. Moisheh

RE: Navajoa

If there ever was an unsafe spot that dump fits the description. We prefer one of the Pemex's. Moisheh

RE: Extended Service Plan for older Class A

Why would anyone go to an RV repair shop for tires?? BTW: They are 295/80's and I have never heard of anyone paying that price!! GS is the worst of any of the extended policy issuers. They look for any excuse not to pay. If you complain they pay. Moisheh

RE: GS Roadside in Mexico

I never heard back from GS. Really bad service. However I found the policy online and they only cover $250 USD for one year! Not per incident. You sure would not be towing your unit very far for $250. My new MH for Mexico is 38 ft. long and weighs about 36,000 lbs. Needs a Kenworth wheel lift or a Landall. They wont even come out for $250.00 I had a smaller motorhome towed with a Med Duty wheel lift in Mexico about 15 years ago. Was $5.00 a mile. Probably $7.50 or more today! Coach Net will reimburse you up to $1000. I use Progressive for my RV insurance and they will tow you in case of an accident all the way back to the USA ! But I don't think they have Roadside in Mexico. Moisheh
