RE: shower bath room conversions

We redid our bathroom, one per house I installed a jacuzzi tub with a heater and had room for a seat with hand holds, I also installed the faucets on the opposite wall from the shower head, I really do not enjoy taking a shower while opening the faucets, we also placed a couple of shelfs between the studs all covered with the tile for the soap and shampoo, the shower does not hit this area so the soap does not get mushy or vanishes. If you have a basement or crawl space, on the shower have the batroom floor gently rice before the sower door and have the shower stall floor slope away from the door, in other words there is no tresh hold or bump, easier to bring a wheel chair, this is how our new house is, no bumps in to the shower, we also have a bench with two steps, easier for the DW to shampoo the tow nails! We have hand hold bars for all the showers, bath tubs, toilets and the guest batroom, we are getting fancy and footloose in our old age in our new house. navegator

RE: Should we expect gas/diesel shortages from Nogales - PV?

Interesting it is in Tijuana living there no one new that that place is named el Chaparral, we just know it as the damed border, both sides, live and learn, now I can tell my buddy that lives in Tijuana what the thatplace is called. I finally opened the link, I am in Mexico and the internet is quirky, the photos are from the crossing at the new Mexican customs area in San Ysidro. navegator

RE: Should we expect gas/diesel shortages from Nogales - PV?

I belive it was in Ciudad Juarez and the crossing is at a place called El Chamisal, as far as I know there is no bridge called El Chaparral, the crossing at the end of freeway 110, local folks might call places by a different name from the official names, maybe someone has actually crossed on that bridge and will let us know. navegator

RE: Question about crossing with expired 10yr permit

On the new vehicles when one bulb goes out a light comes on the dash board, and actually two bulbs ahould be replaced, one on the right and one on the left, the reason is the new bulb will have a diferent resistance from the old bulb and that difference will triger all sort of mesages for the computer, that can and will shut engines down, or as this case lead the computer to shift out of drive into neutral, we experienced this with the new fire aparatus units when the firemen were replacing light bulbs burnt out, it took a time for them to understand that both sides had to be replaced. Word of caution chinese light bulbs have different resistance even for brand new units and the problems will continue, American, German, Japanese light bulbs have the same resistance by wattage. navegator

RE: Question about crossing with expired 10yr permit

The difference in this csae is that the vehicle was outside of Mexico and not in Mexico, therefore the vehicle was not ilegal in Mexican territory when the 10 year permit expiered, it is different when the vehicle is in the Mexican Territory and has an expiered import permit, that can get messy they are getting wise. navegator

RE: Puerto Penasco and fuel protests?

Most stores hide the American cat food cans for a couple of days and then bring them back at a higerr price, Walmart, Cherdraui, Comercial do that when the Dollar goes up or down about 0.50 cents of a dollar, nno big huppla, Mexican car food is made by Purina in Mexico, you can find dog and cat food from the USA just a little more in price. navegator

RE: Puerto Penasco and fuel protests?

Now that the President of Mexico has stated on the tely that everything is OK and that the price of the fuel is going up and that is it!, and he feels the pain of the public, it is for the good of the families! All is quiet on the Southern front! Mexicans have accepted the fact that life is going up, went to buy some cat food at Chedraui and the American cat food cans no where to be seen the Mexican packets 1.50 pesos fifty cents more than day before yesterday and all the store personnel were busy changing all the prices, asked the guys if all the prices in the store were going up and all said yes they are going up from 0.50 cents to about 2.00 pesos, life in Mexico always interesting.

RE: Driving from Guadalajara towards Mexico City

Apparently the unrest has subsided, the government sent a bunch of hoodlums to brake windows and create fear in the protesters and it has had the correct effect, today Thursday traffic was normal and the police is now out again as opposed to yesterday that you could not find one, traffic in to Mexico City has resumed so you should be OK, I am in Mexico City at then moment so gar so good, no shortage of fuel or long lines today at all or yesterday for that matter. navegator

RE: 76 Dodge Sportsman Class C, Brake Issues, wont hold pressure

I have had a couple of brake boosters that did that they can drive you nuts, the reverse can also be caused by internally swollen hoses, the brake caliper will not return and hangs up creating a hot brake and dragging to that side, most people will try to align the front end and it is a dragging caliper. I had an old Volvo station wagon do that did that after a hard brake on the freeway, by the time I got home the hose and caliper were on fire. navegator

RE: What can I bring into Mexico Food / wine / liquor / meat

Costco has at least 3 or 4 different brands of dog food, go to Google maps zoom in on the nearest big city and type the Word Costco, Mx. and the Costco's will show up and the address, if you bring medium sized bags of dog food have one open and the others in different areas in the RV, one under the dinette bench closed that is and one in the closet behind and under some clothes, as for the electronics, do not have them all on the dash board again have them scattered where you normally would have them, as for food items check with the customs site on the Mexican government sites, food items change constantly so it is hard to pin point, you can purchase just about anything that you need for a comfortable trip and camping at Costco, Chedraui, Comercial Mexicana, and Walmart and any big city or medium size, even at the "Mercado" or tianguis open air market. We even find American restaurants, TGIF, IHOP, HOOTERS, Chilis, and of course the local ones, then we have McDonald, Burger King, Dominos Pizza, stores 7-11, OXXO, Circle K, there used to be Dairy Queen and Piglly Wiglly although I haven't seen them lately. navegator

RE: What can I bring into Mexico Food / wine / liquor / meat

You can bring a bag of dog food medium size, there are dog food products in Mexico some manufactured in country others imported, your electronic devices are ok to bring since they are personal items, you can accses the web site from Secretaria de Hacienda, Aduanas, articulos de importacion prohibidos, they have an english version and have the forbiden items of the month. Dog food can be purchased at Walmarts, Chedrauii, Comercial Mexicana and pet stores in the major Cities, not in small towns. navegator

RE: Fuel Price protests

Wednesday January 4 in Mexico, Pemex is closing 1800 gas stations and not delivering any fuel at all since some of the delivery trucks have been high jacked and in some areas even shots have been fired, the unrest is really getting out of hand, try to stay put until the situation is alleviated, there is not much that we can do this is as of the news in Mexico city today in the morning. They did not say what or where those gas stations are being closed. navegator

RE: 76 Dodge Sportsman Class C, Brake Issues, wont hold pressure

Old brake hoses some times swell internally, they look ok but are restricted inside, when the pedal is applied there will be pressure on the pedal as the fluid slowly pushes against the soft internal walls pushing and creating a dam of soft rubber at the lower end of the hose where it is not damaged, the pressure is lost slowly as it passed the restricted area, bleeding the brakes will be normal since there is no pressure to push the soft internal walls of the hose towards a hard point blocking the little bit of hose, after a few seconds the fluid starts getting past the restriction and the pressure is taken up by the piston on the caliper, since it did not move to begin. The solution is to replace all the hoses and also check that the brake pedal and the booster push rod that goes into the master cylinder are at the correct length, the other possible problem area is the master cylinder if it is manufactured in China or India or some where else instead of the USA. Some years ago I had an auto repair shop and I had to specify American made parts or German or Swedish or Japanese made because the Chinese or other manufactured parts were nothing but junk, when time equates to money earned those junk parts are a loosing proposition, master cylinders, remanufactured generators, some brake boosters and power steering pumps as well as power steering racks that are made in Asia are notorious for junk, cheap does not equate with quality, specially when it pertains to brakes, to many lives depend on them. navegator

RE: Gasoline in Mexico

I am living in Mexico City at the moment, I have asked and spoken to the persons placing my purchases in the bags at the check out counter if they got a salary from the store, answer "no", the same conversation for the person offering to push my cart at Costco or the parking attendant at Walmart, so I give them 10 pesos, that is $0.50 American cents, that is not much for me but makes a big differenve to them. The traffic disruptions afect the poor more than anyone else, how many that live in the outlying towns and travell to work are not able to reach the job in time or not at all and are either docked the day or fired because of this dumb protests that the government does not even care, the politicos have access to all the fuel they want, they are the politicos. navegator
