RE: Lukeville crossing, Today!

We have crossed @ Nogales for over 20 years. Never been asked about the cat or meat. Never heard of anyone else having those problems @ Nogales. We will never cross @ Lukeville. We do not bring much meat other than cold cuts ( Kubasa!). Always have lots of cheese. Never bring fruits or veggies. We are in the land of produce! Moisheh

RE: El Pozo, Patzcuaro

Great spot: The owner got tired of electricity hogs and solved his problem the Mexican way. Each site has a 15 amp breaker. Not 20's and 30's like some places. Quickly limits your power usage. Great location and we too used the cooperativos taxis. Water was a problem. Moisheh

RE: ISB 300 Power loss / Turbo Failure

moparmaga2: You are having problems because that engine has an emission system that never worked properly and Cat will not do anything that will correct the problem. Your DPF is also problematic. When Cat left the OTR business they stopped doing any fixes for their problems! There may be some trucker hackers that can eliminate that junk! Moisheh

RE: Fuel Prices

There is no such Bank as the Quebec Bank. It closed almost 100 years ago. There is a bank of Montreal but I do not think Banks in Canada are allowed to speculate. There is a Caisse Popular which is like a Credit Union. Very wealthy and they might be speculating but I am not sure if they are allowed to do that. ??? Banks in Canada are heavily regulated. Moisheh

RE: Pex fittings on our 07 Fleetwood

I went on a tour of then new FW MH plant in PA a number of years ago.. They showed us the Pex assembly procedures. Every employee who worked on that part of the line was trained by the mfr. of the Pex fittings. All water lines were pre made on a bench. I don't remember the whole assembly but they had a special tool that expands the pex tubing and then the fittings are inserted. Pex has a memory and will always apply pressure to keep the fittings tight. I was impressed! One rarely hears of anyone having leak problems with this system. Moisheh

RE: Monaco Recalls

There was a recall on one type of steering box and another that had something to do with the movable pedals. Neither were serious. The models well below the Dynasty had the trailing arm recalls. Moisheh

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

I am a business person and if you are dealing with the public you have to be aware that customers are easily lost. One bad meal and they all go elsewhere. One pushy electronics sales person and they complain. BUT if you are dealing with non Mexicans in Mexico then you must provide service. Mexicans rarely complain and customer service is a new phrase to many businesses.. The management originally started doing the right thing. They offered to pay for the damages. Then they back tracked. That is a horrible business practice. Perhaps after they lose business after LYING to the Rv'r things will change. There will be a loss of business that did not have to happen. As for American appliances in Mexico: That is an old wive's tale. Mabe ( GE) builds fridges in both the USA and Mexico. They use the same compressors and the same electronic boards. Major differences are fridge size and Spanish labels. Most of today's appliances are labeled for higher voltages. We have a Mexican fridge in the house that has been running 24/7,365 for 4 years. It is made and sold in Mexico and labeled for 115 volts. We have 2 freezers and 2 small fridges. All American. They vary from 6 to 14 years old. All still running. Our American TV is labeled for 110 to 120 volts. 3 years old and still running. The TV's sold in Mexican Costco's are labeled the same. When you get a REAL surge in Mexico it is not 135 volts. It can melt home surge protectors and fry TV's and appliances. Even Mexican units. We have transformers on our street that are adjustable. They are normally set to around 135 volts. If there are a lot of people here on the weekends it drops to less than 130. Our local lineman told me that 135 is normal! I just checked our voltage and it is 128. There are tons of Mexican tourists here this weekend. Tepetapan: I do not appreciate your snide remarks! Moisheh

Lack of manufacturers

Why are there so few companies making the Super C units. I only see one that I would call high end or even mid range ( Dynamax). The rest are Thor and Jayco. I would call those basic entry level units. Is there a lack of demand? Moisheh

RE: Crossing Lukeville/Sonoyta Information

For those who use Lukeville here is something I gleaned from our local newsletter:"However, there's a new Aduana/Customs station just east of Caborca. They are quite aggressive about checking vehicles for anything imported." Moisheh

RE: "Twilight" dentistry in Mexico?

2oldman: What makes you think that Valium is available at a pharmacy in Mexico? Not so!!! Controlled substances are not sold in pharmacies! From the US consulate: Information for Residents and Visitors Victims of Crime How to Avoid Being a Victim of Crime in Baja Guns are Illegal in Mexico Buying Prescription Drugs in Mexico Mexico’s New Drug Laws Info for Seniors and Disabled Warning: Dangerous Wave Conditions in Coastal Areas of Baja California Sur Smart Traveler Enrollment Program Passports Citizenship/Reports of Birth Abroad Death of an American Notary Services Federal Benefits Contact Citizen ServicesBuying Prescription Drugs in Mexico 12 Mexico’s laws governing medicines are similar to those in the United States. Any drug classified as a controlled medicine cannot be purchased in Mexico without a Mexican prescription. This prescription must be written by a Mexican federally registered physician. Purchasing a controlled medicine without a valid prescription in Mexico is a serious crime for both the purchaser and the seller. Purchasing a controlled medicine with a U.S. prescription is not sufficient and is illegal, regardless of what the Mexican pharmacy may be willing to sell to the purchaser. By law, Mexican pharmacies cannot honor foreign prescriptions. In Mexico, medications such as Valium, Vicodin, Placidyl, Ambien, codeine, pseudoefedrine, Demerol, morphine, and Ativan are not legally sold over-the-counter without a valid prescription from a Mexican physician. If the purchaser succeeds in purchasing controlled medicines without a prescription, Mexican police can arrest the purchaser and vendor and charge them with possession/sale of a controlled substance. The sentence for possession of a controlled substance runs from ten months to fifteen years in a Mexican prison.

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

You usually get the reputation you deserve. Yes this thread has been long but how long did it take for the owner to ante up? If he values his rep. he should have done the right thing RIGHT AWAY. His reputation is tarnished and rightfully so!

RE: Fuel Prices............WHY ??

Some interesting comments that I never considered. Also some that are off the wall. The poster who said that Europe does not mfr. ULSD should do some research. Europe has been using ULSD long before we did in N.A. Moisheh

RE: Nogales crossing report

Today's El Imparcial had all the statistics on the new Mariposa crossing. 12 lanes for cars. 8 for trucks, 24 secondary spots for cars, 56 for trucks, cost 187 million, 60 % of the vegetables consumed in the USA cross @ Nogales, 4000 trailers cross daily. Moisheh

RE: Nogales crossing report

This discussion has been about the Mexican side not Mariposa. I might add that there is talk in AZ about most of those lanes not being open as there are not enough agents! Moisheh

RE: Nogales crossing report

RonY Vickie: As is most things in Mexico it can be confusing! Cross Country. It is marked but I would not call it clear. After you exit the toll booth the inspection area is less than a KM ahead. The signs show that cars stay to the left. There are Jersey barriers to keep the big trucks to the right. You will see the typical lanes for cars with those infamous traffic lights. DO NOT enter that area.To your right you will see large lanes for trucks and one that is marked in smaller print" motor homes" Go slow it is wide enough but some of the concrete posts have someone's paint on them! I always have the wife watch her side and I watch mine. On most MH's if the mirrors clear you are good to go. An Aduanero will approach. Good Luck. Where are you staying in Maz. Congrats on the Foretravel. You really have moved up! Moisheh

RE: Fuel Cost in Arizona?

Wow: Cannot believe the Reponses. The head of the gas tax enforcement has posted that this tax does not apply to MH's. But still the experts know better. I fueled in AZ last week at the RV pumps! Moisheh

RE: Nogales crossing report

Cross Country: Yes we tow our extended cab Silverado and the MH is 42 ft. They removed those concrete topes that were on the bias last year. It is no tighter than the US side. Our unit is 102 wide as are all the 18 wheelers that use that crossing. You do enter to the left and have to swing over to the MH crossing on the right but it is easy. The concrete barrier snakes are on the US side. But still very doable. I think they use these so that some fool does not try to "run the border " at a high speed. It still amazes me that in the crazy world we live in not one Aduanero asks for ID. You could be the head of ISIL and cross with a smile on your face! Cross Country: What are you driving? Did you sell the Coachman? Moisheh

RE: I have a scangauge code that Cummins doesn't recognize.

J&A: I was having a similar problem and it turned out to be the coolant low level sensor. Amazing at how much power you can lose when it derates. Moisheh
