You are asking for French fries, in the United States of America they are known as: Freedom Fries navegator

RE: Ten things that give away this is your first time to Mexico

Or the ones that start talking as if they are speaking to a one year old or smaller using the O and A endings, they are really funny to listen to, they make no sense at all. All children in urban Mexican schools are taught basic English, not so out in the rural areas or where Spanish has to be taught as a second language after their native language. To all of you that are not fluent in Spanish, speak in English and try to pronounce each word clearly and slow down a little, believe me you will be understood. navegator

RE: Phone Scam/IRS

I received one that was supposed to be from the FBI, and I was going to get arrested if I did not clear the money owed immediately. So I asked if he was calling from the San Diego office, he said yes and if he knew Special Agent so and so, or another guy's name, he answered yes, so I said send my buddies down to arrest me, I will have the BBQ and beers ready, click. navegator

RE: Excellent Road report from Cabo to Tijuana (not mine)

Coming into to Tijuana from the autopista "toll road" from Rosarito and staying on that road you end on Calle Segunda that takes you directly to the overpass with out having to make any turns, just follow the street, no turns at all, and you end at the left side of the barrier, no need to follow the fence road only inconvenience is driving through down town TJ, I have friends that live in Playas de Tijuana and that is the way we always go back to the border. navegator

RE: Ten things that give away this is your first time to Mexico

So true you can spot a new arrival a block away, trying to speak Spanish by adding an "O" or an "A" to English words and not making any sense what so ever, if you do not speak the language take a dictionary in your native tongue and the language of the country that you are going to. Otherwise come on down we are in Mexico City fixing up the wife's inherited house and enjoy the good food and friendly people, where can four people eat a full course meal for $ 15.00 USD, granted it is not a five star restaurant but a comedor familiar just around the corner.

RE: Recomended oil for Onan 4KW generator

Some of these generators are splash lubricated, no oil pump and if the oil is to thin there will not be enough viscosity to prevent metal on metal, use 30W or what the manufacturer specifies. navegator

RE: Asian Beetles....again!

I have used Ortho Home Defense on the outside and inside my RV, no damage done, it will wash off and last about 3 months depending on the amount of rain. navegator

RE: Thief broke camper window, stole TV & wall mount support arm

If the theft is reported and you find your property at a pawn shop, notify the police and you will get the items at the pawn shop returned, most probable is that the thief bartered the items for drugs, if that is the case the items are gone. navegator

RE: Excellent Road report from Cabo to Tijuana (not mine)

On the trip North if travelling on the cuota into Tijuana, continue with out making any turns from the road this brings you into down town Tijuana, once the street becomes a one way move to the next to the left lane and stay on it, when you see the over pass continue and make sure that the concrete barrier is on the right hand side of the RV, the sign on the overpass looks as if you have to move over to the right, do not move from the lane, this takes you on a right hand turn up onto the over pass and straight on to the border crossing. All the right lanes are sentry and ready lanes, the lane that you are going too end in is next to the barrier stay in this lane and be careful of all the idiots that want to jump lanes, eventually you will get across. navegator

RE: Class C Construction Hackery

Check where the "house" portion sits on the frame some older units actually sit on wood and are bolted down with square "U" bolts, then as was suggested, lift house remove truck portion and lower on cinder blocks. navegator

RE: Filling water tanks - 2006 Jayco Greyhawk 31SS

Two of those valves are probably for actually filling the (one) potable water tank , one valve for filling the tank and the other when you are hooked to campground water source and the other valves are for draining the water tank the hot water tank and the lines, the water tank has a dump line that spills water on the ground when the tank is full. The grey and the black tank have handles on the black PVC pipes located under the RV, these tanks are filled as you use the potable water, when dumping first open the black tank valve, big pipe and after all the "water" has emptied then open the gray water tank valve, small pipe, that way you "clean" the sewer hose from toilet sludge. Word of caution do not put anything in the toilet that you did not eat other than toilet paper, and do not waste money in marine and RV toilet paper, use Costco instead they really dissolve fast. navegator

RE: turn signals in middle of trailer/5th wheel?

I installed turn signal lights on the side of my 24 foot RV, I realized that the rear lights were to far in for a motorist to notice that I am making a lane change, and they insist on blocking the toad that is behind the RV, I believe that some drivers get tunnel vision when they get behind a vehicles steering wheel. All vehicles should have this feature, I really like the mirror with the arrow, I placed turn signals under the mirror arm, they even have a recess for that. navegator

RE: Propane Problem

Make a cradle out off wood where the hose can slide, like the old wood shuts that logger's used to transport logs with water, it can lay on the ground if that is not to obtrusive or there is interference with doors or other obstructions, just a suggestion. navegator

RE: stabilizers while parked

I installed a couple of scissor jacks behind the fuel tank, making sure that when folded they did not touch the black water tank and when fully down the screws did not meet each other, buy the biggest ones that you can, some times you need the height when camping in National Parks. I brought two pairs, installed two permanently and the other two I use up front when we are staying longer, I also carry a smaller scissor jack that I place close to the door to avoid rocking the RV when going in and out I carry them in the toad. Do not weld the jacks to the frame, drill holes and use bolts if one jack gets bent it can be replaced easy. navegator

RE: Hott Rod Water heater element install

Before you install the heating element, make sure that it does not touch the heating tube, some times the welded fitting is off a bit and when the heating element is tightened it will touch or some times pierce the aluminum heat tube and you will end with a leak. Measure from the thread to the end and use a tape measure to probe for depth, be sure that the tape is going in the same direction as the heater element or use a piece of wood to probe for clearance. navegator

RE: Rain in Sonora

A tropical depression moved through Sonora from the gulf of California, NOAA Hurricane Center www.nhc.noaa.gov/ will report and track these depressions as they can become hurricanes in the Pacific coast of Mexico and the Gulf of California, we have had some good soakers in Mexico City in the last weeks, I hope that every one is safe. navegator

RE: Rving Chile - Rv Rentals

Mr: qtla9111, I would suggest a "C" class in the 22 to 28 foot size, some of the units made on the Sprinter chassis are to low to the ground for travelling in unimproved roads should you want to get of the beaten path. The other point to consider is the availability of parts should anything brake, that is provided that you carry some hard to find items, fuel pump, water pump, a couple of injectors, couple fuel and air filters, belt(s) and then you have the fuel availability, Diesel is some times easier to obtain, regardless of the fuel choice consider installing a Racor water separator and a filter that can be cleaned on the road. My first choice of vehicle would be a Ford, then Chevrolet, Ford parts and service is easier to find in Latin America. navegator
