RE: ULSD in Baja

There are Mexicans that advertise in some of the local papers " We buy Catalytic Converters". They remove them and install a pipe in it's place. Often done to new cars as some of them are very valuable. Blatant disregard for the laws. DPF's require some expertise in deleting the filter from the ECM. Moisheh

RE: ULSD in Baja

almcc: I think you misunderstood. Any buses built in Mexico would be pre ULSD. The state does not want to buy units that will be polluting the city when ULSD is finally available. Remember Mexico city has a huge air pollution problem. No vehicles in Mexico that are for the local market are produced with 07 and higher pollution equipment(DPF & SCR). This has been a battle for about 3 years. I thought they were going to import the ULSD to Mexico City?? Moisheh

RE: Canadian Mail Forwarding

OP: Have you considered a private mail box in Canada? There are some independents and UPS is everywhere. Canada Post is a hopeless organization. For almost 3 weeks my business was not receiving much mail. Normally there are at least 15 items plus magazines, Then magically the truck started coming with 20 or 30 pieces. Apparently Canada Post was doing a survey on the amount of mail for this area. If the volumes were high we would continue with a mailman. Low volumes would get us those stupid mailboxes. So Canada Post just held the mail as the count was for delivered mail. My American friends get great service. The mailman even picks up your mail for delivery! Moisheh

RE: ULSD in Baja

"Welders must be certified, Gamma Ray inspection is performed on all welds. Process control must be computerized. Mexico has none of this in place" Mex: I am surprised you would make that statement. Mexico has lots of pipeline certified welders. When it comes to non destructive testing it is normal to bring the specialists from countries that do have the technology. Not a big deal. I think the problem is a lack of political will. Moisheh

RE: Nogales Border Crossing

I have never tried that. I usually stay off the highways from the Wednesday to the Monday. There will be lots of paisanos going south and lots of shoppers going North. I am heading back south in my truck and I will cross on Monday. Moisheh

RE: First Time Buyer for Revcon 1972

Having restored 2 Classic MH's I can offer some advice based on experience. Owning one of these beauties is not for everyone. Do you have mechanical experience? Are you prepared to spend up to $5000 in the first month of ownership? Is the seller the first owner? How long has he owned this unit? You need more pics of the exterior. Often the lack of photos for a given area is indicative of problems. Why is he selling. The description is very positive but sellers do enhance sometimes. Does he have invoices for the recent repairs. I seem to remember that front wheel drive system is weak and very hard to repair. Parts should be available but I am not sure about brake calipers and master cylinders. The engine area looks neglected. Those plug wires are garbage and look very old. Someone has rerouted them. Has the unit sat for a long time. Sometimes people use old units as a storage container. When they decide to sell the interior is staged for the pictures. Is that contraption on the rear bumper a cheap old generator? I wonder if there was a genie installed behind the rear grille? If you have to take this to a mechanic and he is not familiar with the FW drive you will pay dearly for his education. There are experts for these who work on the GMC motorhomes. Is the roof aluminum or fiberglass? Is it one piece? Leaks can make it worthless. There is my 2 cents worth. If you are not too far away it might be worth the trip to see it BEFORE any deposit. Start with asking questions and getting more pics. If he cannot comply walk away. Moisheh

RE: bleeding air breaks

sahneperch: Why are you against it becoming law? You were being very responsible in worrying about the lives of the people in your bus. I can never understand the attitude Americans have when it comes to Gov. intervention. Many times I concur but an air brake license?? You need a special license to operate a motorcycle why not an air brake equipped vehicle? I was at a Nebraska rest area about 3 years ago. A fellow DP driver saw me pull in and asked if I could help him. He wondered of something was wrong as his compressor was running almost constantly. ( at least he knew it was his compressor making that noise!) I asked him if his air pressure was normal. He could not answer that question! Turns out he had only owned this unit for 3 weeks. Knew absolutely nothing about air brakes. I went over and he had a leak underneath that was so bad I could hear it from the step area. The unit was low slung and I was not going to go under a vehicle with an air leak. Neither of us had any air line or fittings. I suggested a mobile diesel mechanic and that he not drive the vehicle as it is dangerous. There are probably hundreds on this very forum who also have zero knowledge of air brakes. It is not difficult to learn the basics. One does not have to be a mechanic. I would not trust an RV dealer to teach the course. Their business is selling not teaching. Moisheh

RE: Dodge 440 ,miss firing

Although this may not be the problem make sure you replace the ballast resistor. They go bad often. Many owners replace the whole distributor with an aftermarket HEI system. I bet your plug wires are shot. Unless you have some fancy wires the underhood heat kills the wires. Moisheh

RE: Problems towing a Ford Focus

I thought of buying one to tow but after reading all the reports on that fancy trannie I passed. One would have thought that by now they would have fixed the trans but according to consumer reports it ranks in the list of worst cars on the market. Mostly because almost everyone has trannie problems. I am surprised as I thought Ford was producing some nice cars. Moisheh

RE: 10 year trailer permit (mexico)

TIP's and 10 year permits have been computerized for a long time. They are networked so you can return your permits at any crossing with a Banjercito. Moisheh

RE: Peace and security in Mexico

briansue: The fact that one country has a worse crime rate or car jacking than Mexico does not affect anything that happens in Mexico. Twisted logic. If 10,00 people were murdered in the USA and only 9000 in Mexico does that make Mexico safe? Statistics mean nothing. It is all about perception and unfortunately Mexico gets a bad "rep" for anything that happens. Stop in any RV park in the Southwest and start talking about Mexico and you will get some wild stories and comments about safety. Of course they are not factual. But those old folks think that bandits are behind every tree or cactus. No amount of posting statistics will change that perception. Moisheh

RE: 10 year trailer permit (mexico)

darbone: That is true if his permit has not expired. Once it has gone the 10 years and not cancelled it becomes a problem. But this is Mexico so I will add "maybe". Best to do all future paperwork in his wife's name. Moisheh

RE: 10 year trailer permit (mexico)

Where is your paperwork for that permit? Some on this forum claim that because you have a new passport they will not find the permit for your old trailer. I do not think that will be true today as everything is computerized. You can just use your wife's passport and get the new TIP in her name Cancelling your old permit can be a nightmare. Without the old sticker and the paperwork it is impossible .If they do find that permit has expired you will be denied entry into Mexico. Or you will not be able to get any vehicle permits. Don't know about fines. I find it hard to understand how people can be so casual about car permits. When you sold the trailer the sticker should have been removed and at that point you could have cancelled the permit. I was fortunate to have mine cancelled after the fact but it was difficult and expensive. I had the sticker and the paperwork. Moisheh

RE: Castrol GTX Diesel 15W-40

Most Castrol oils are HIGH quality. They meet the tougher European standards. The question about "luck" with oils makes no sense. NO RV'r drives enough miles to determine that an oil is good or bad. You would need many millions of miles to come to a conclusion. When was the last time you heard of an RV'r that had engine problems due to an inferior oil? Moisheh

RE: Peace and security in Mexico

tplife has posted mostly jibberish. The race team incident was posted here. They did not lose all their trucks. But one of the crew with his wife had their truck and trailer stolen. Then the US Border people treated them like dirt. I keep wondering how many times this story will be recycled? It keeps changing!! Happened in 2007. Apparently the thieves were Mexican Special Forces. I might add that stealing race cars in Baja ( and in the USA) is not unusual. Moisheh

I think they take the same size opening. Just deeper. The Camping World catalog may have the dimensions. Moisheh
