RE: Can a 10 year TIP be obtained for a truck camper rig?

Silver: The 6 month is removed and you get a receipt showing it was returned. If you paid a "bond" the process of getting a refund is started. It must be returned when you leave the country. If you exceed the expiry date of a 6 month TIP you lose the bond! The 10 year stays on the vehicle until you don't want it anymore or it is about to expire. There is no bond on the 10 year. You can exit the country with the sticker attached. I still think It is a bad idea to get a 10 year for an item that is not a vehicle. One never knows what will happen if you are stopped. No one can give you a definitive answer to your problem. One Aduanaero might give you the permit. Another might not. But technically it is not eligible. Or at least that was correct . Things do change so who knows. Moisheh

Pemex pensions!!!

If anyone is wondering why Pemex is almost bust read this article. http://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/generous-payments-for-pemex-pensioners/?utm_source=Mexico+News+Daily&utm_campaign=b06a8c5fa3-March+21&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f1536a3787-b06a8c5fa3-347993029

RE: Can a 10 year TIP be obtained for a truck camper rig?

I have been advising travelers NOT to try and get a permit for the camper. This could open up a can of worms. If the camper is not considered a vehicle then it could be subject to import duties. I would just get the 6 month TIP. If you left the camper in Mexico and tried to turn in your TIP they might ask for the camper. Or they would not refund your deposit. Why would you want to leave a nice camper in Mexico. It will rot! Moisheh

Tequila will have the latest but TIP's are for vehicles. A camper is not a vehicle. Moisheh

RE: Water?

If one does not want to bother with filters the simplest method is to fill the tank with Mexican water. Use it for showers and dish washing. Use garafons for drinking and cooking water. We keep a gollon jug in the fridge and refill as required When in area with known bad water we do not use it for any purpose. We have been sick many times from food. Never from water. No big deal to sanitize the tank when you return NOB. Reed; @ 2.5 gallons a day you must not have been showering in your unit. I would be worried about getting a skin disease from some of the CG showers. In some CG's they are NEVER cleaned. Moisheh

RE: Best Filter Prices?????? Tell us your secrets.

Eddie: What a crock of you know what. Fleetguard are one of the best filters in the marketplace. I would place them at the top. They told you that story as they cannot get the FG filters at a wholesale price. When it comes to fuel filters for a Cummins there is nothing better than an OEM Cummins Fleetguard. 3 years ago I was unable to source one of my fuel filters from Filter Barn. I went to a Donaldson dealer in Tucson. I installed the filter and drove 300 miles. Kept getting a check engine light. Naïve me never considered it could be the filter. Engine was derating. Went to a Freightliner dealer. Mechanic checked everything. Replaced that Donaldson with a Cummins filter. problem solved. It was sucking air. Tech gave me a big lecture about Donaldson fuel filters. I was still a doubter. 2 days ago I changed my oil and fuel filters. This time I substituted a Baldwin for the Cummins filter. Could not get the engine primed. Removed that filter and it was only 3/4 full. Dug into my filter stock and found a Cummins filter. Again problem was solved. Could this be a coincidence. I suppose but I will never use anything other than a Cummins filter!!! Moisheh

RE: Best Filter Prices?????? Tell us your secrets.

There was a filter expert that used to post on IRV2. He worked for Cat and Cummins for years. Now retired. He wasn't an engineer but knew more than the engineers. He stated that filters do have a shelf life. BTW : also stated that you should never undo the hoses to your air filter on a DP to see if the filter is dirty. This exposes a lot of dirt to the clean side of the filter. I used to use Filter barn but lately they do not have a full selection of Fleetguard. Some of the FG prices were no better than Amazon. What a shame. I think there sources for overstock filters has dried up. Moisheh

RE: Canadian prices too high on used units? Cheaper to import?

cvbdsl: Be careful what you ask for. He will bombard you with a bunch of malarkey. I really do not understand his motive. All the posters are just asking for some info. He disagrees which is fine. But after awhile you have to move on. What does he care if thousands are breaking the law ( they are not!). He will never quit. But thousands of units are imported every year and no one has any problems. Some provinces have even changed their regs so the RVIA sticker becomes equivalent to a CSA. Of course he will disagree. cvdbsl: Enjoy your nice Dutch Star!! Moisheh

RE: Pemex Diesel Fuel Update

Thanks Ed. At least on the big trucks ( most) you can force a regen. On MH's that is not possible. But plugged DPF's on class 8 are still a problem. Some can be cleaned but others need to be replaced. When they are selling used tractors at a dealer they often advertise that the DPF has been changed. We RV'rs are lucky. We have very few emission system problems. How many MH's have over 300,000 miles? In an OTR truck that is 2 years! The big carriers buy say 1000 trucks when they only need 750. That way have a truck ready to go. It can take up to a month to get parts for a new truck emission system.. They often have to engineer a new sensor to solve the problem. Down time is a serious problem. Since DEF began the systems are much better. Moisheh

RE: Pemex Diesel Fuel Update

I drive long haul for an O/O in the summer. He and his brother have a very good repair shop that is open to the public. One day they had a DPF from a Kenworth that was plugged solid. The truck was used in the North near Hudson Bay. They were using regular non ULSD fuel Probably intended for barges. The inside of that DPF looked like it was filled with concrete. Cannot be cleaned. I think a new one is around $2000. This truck was a 2008. The 2010 and up trucks use DEF. Regular diesel plugs up the sensors. Costs big bucks to diagnose and repair. Add in the down time and you cans see that no Carrier with half a brain would take a chance on fuel not being ULSD. Mex is right . It costs a lot of money to delete a DPF system. 18,000 pesos is cheap. If the truck is new and you remove the system your warranty is gone! If I have time next week I will go a truck dealer and look at some new tractors to see if they have DPF's. Moisheh

RE: Pemex Diesel Fuel Update

Since NAFTA vehicles have been a good example of how free trade works. Parts and vehicles cross the border. Sometimes a part may be mfd. in the USA , sent to Mexico and comes back as part of a whole vehicle. BUT vehicles are manufactured to the requirements of the importing country. Mexico and Canada get metric odometers. Mexico gets an emission system that is very much like a 2006 vehicle. Lots of EGR and the ECM is programed differently than say a Canadian vehicle. Canadian cars get a very robust anti theft system. Although this strays from the original thread it shows that just because you see a Cascadia in Mexico it probably is not a USA vehicle. Mexican trucking companies are just as sophisticated as those NOB. No CEO is going to risk having a truck that requires ULSD unless he know it is widely available.Presently it is not widely available! I might add that we were in Oaxaca once and stopped at a huge Pemex. On the lot was a van that was checking the emission systems of inter city busses. I have also seen those vehicles at the mostly closed weigh scales in Sonora. I doubt they check the chicken busses as they could never pass!!! Same for the old Dina 10 tons. Moisheh

RE: Canadian prices too high on used units? Cheaper to import?

Jaxdad does it again. He writes well. Almost convincing you he knows something. Saskatchewan, Manitoba and BC have Government auto insurance. When I bought my last motorhome ( and others) the Government insurance ( Autopac) provided me with a paper plate and insurance so I could bring it to Canada. It was temporarily registered and insured! I don't remember how long it was good for but I think 10 days. It was enough time to drive it home, get an inspection and do the paperwork. I think the 2 other Provinces do this as well. So once again Jax is wrong. No insurance agent would ever ask you if your unit was CSA . That is just bull. I too am convinced he is a dealer. If not why does he constantly get into these discussions. Does he report his neighbors if they park an RV on the street. Does he call building inspection if he sees a fence that is too high. Get a life. What do you care if someone imports a vehicle and you don't agree with the way it was done. The rest of us are just giving our knowledge of the procedure. It is obvious that 90 % of posters are not interested in your input. It helps no one. Waste of bandwidth. Moisheh

RE: Pemex Diesel Fuel Update

Daniele: Your post is so far off it is almost comical. Navistar was building ALL of the Prostars and another Class 8 in MEXICO for export to the USA. I don't know if that is still the case but as recent as 2010 that was true. Freightliner builds the frame rails for their Motorhome chassis in Mexico and may even build the whole chassis less the drivetrain. Truckers who are real buy American guys complain that the Freightliner trucks are made in Mexico. Here is a post from a Daimler worker. It is old but may still be true. I think only certain models are exported to the USA. Quote: "I am writing on behalf of approximately 3000 laid off American workers . These workers were employed at Freightliner's US plants located in North Carolina. We are aware that most Freightliner Trucks are being produced at Freightliner's Santiago Mexico plant. We are asking that you contact Daimler Trucks North America ( Freightliner ) and demand that your next be produced in the US , thereby supporting unemployed Americans who desperately need and want to work in order to support their families and their communities. We believe the decision to build your truck outside the U.S. does nothing to strengthen the US economy at a time when the economy is in undeniably bad shape. We have workers who have been unemployed for over two years now that want and need to work. Please contact Daimler now and ask them (Freightliner) to support the U.S. economy where their own fortunes have been made in the U.S.A. since 1942. We are asking that you support our "Buy American Campaign " Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration of this very serious issue to the american worker . Will Davis Bessemer City, North Carolina" end quote 2 years ago I went to a Mexican Navistar dealer. They had trucks that looked exactly like the USA models. But when I looked underneath there was no DPF. So those trucks you are seeing may be produced with Mexican emission systems. I have no doubt that Mexico will eventually have ULSD but when is a whole other story. I don't know if you have been travelling in Mexico for a long time but it took forever for Mexico to offer lead free gasoline. Before 1991 there was no magna sin. Just really bad gasoline. Mexican cars sold before 1991 did not have catalytic convertors. As for corruption I will bow to Mex. He knows more about Pemex corruption than any of us. It is shocking. Moisheh

RE: Pemex Diesel Fuel Update

DANIEL: Tell me the name of a carrier using NEW USA made trucks that are equipped with USA emission systems. American trucks are often sold in countries without DPF and DEF equipment. Any new USA class 8 truck that is running on Mexican fuel would have so many problems the truck would be unusable. These are not RV's. They run a minimum of 150,000 miles a year. Where would they buy DEF? I know that Kenworths are all made in Mexico. I do see some Volvos and they may come from the USA. Freightliner has a Mexican plant. Like Mex says they must be removing the emission systems or they come without the DPF and DEF. Quote"Like ED every thing I hear is that ULSD will be widespread sooner rather than later." Where did you hear this info? hearsay or do you have a credible link? Moisheh

RE: Canada Trip Planning

The best CG near Winnipeg is Bird's Hill Provincial Park. Hundreds of Acres of forest yet civilized. Huking trails, man made lake and riding stable. They take reservations and have some very nice FHU spots. About 12 miles to the city. Moisheh

RE: Canada Trip Planning

There are 2 different highways through Northern Ontario. Both have lower speed limits. Lots of Moose! The Northern route has less traffic in the summer. All the RV's are on the other highway! You won't have any problems with your rig. I have driven an 18 wheeler with a 53 ft. trailer on both highways. Would you like some info on Winnipeg? Moisheh

RE: Pemex Diesel Fuel Update

Mex: That is the first time I have seen anyone stating that ULSD gets lower mileage than say LSD. 2007 to 2010 ( no DEF) do get lower mpg than say a 2004 truck. But that is due to a lot more than just the fuel. Newer trucks( 2011 and up) are getting better mileage than pre emission vehicles. BUT they have so many emission system problems the fuel savings are quickly canceled out! Mexican truckers with those old Dina trucks will have pump seal problems with ULSD. Our Old Bluebird loved Mexican diesel. High Cetane! Moisheh

RE: Canadian prices too high on used units? Cheaper to import?

Jaqtech: No matter what you use for logic that lone wolf poster will never stop his rantings. He has been on many forums with the same mantra. Usually posters just start to ignore him. I can never understand his logic. I really think he is either connected to an RV dealer or maybe is a dealer. It would be a shame if a forum member was planning on importing a vehicle and changed his mind due to those erroneous posts. Moisheh

RE: Mexwanderer in accident

Chuck: Actually we have lots of drug users and low level dealers. One family that is rarely here with legit businesses but dealers nonetheless. One local who is connected but he works hard and is a nice person. Cartels? None. There was a bunch many years ago but ended up in jail. Kino is like the middle of nowhere! I bet our BC forum members have more drug activity than Kino in their home towns ! Moisheh

RE: Canadian prices too high on used units? Cheaper to import?

The odometer does not have to read in km. The vehicle does not have to meet Canadian standards. It has to have a US Federal plaque that states it meets the US standard. If it is on the list provided by Registrar of Imported Vheicles it is OK, I think a 1996 may be allowed today without all of the above due to age. But not sure. Moisheh
