RE: Question Toll Fees Durango To Mazatlan ?

The toll prices in the www.sct.gov.mx site in Mexico are in Pesos and not in Dollars, with the exchange rate going up and down it is better to use Pesos. I normally figure on 10 Pesos to the Dollar and have a pleasent return, it is an approximate exchange rate of about 13.30 for one Dollar. navegator

RE: Driving around those stupid roundabouts

Round and round we go! When you enter one of this round abouts, sight the exit and aim for it, close your eyes and everyone else will take care not to hit you! Yust kiding. They actually keep trafic fllowing a lot smother than other methods, drove them in France and the one that unnerved me was in England, they really do not like it when you by mistake try to go against the LEFT HAND traffic, OH! well they reallised we where visitors, Swedish International plates. Round and round....... navegator

RE: How's your A/C working?

The RV 24 foot long came with a Dometic roof unit and worked very well even when the temps outside where 118+ outside and no shade, this year the unit quit and was replaced with a Coleman Mach unit of the same rating, not as good we have to keep it runing all the time in order to have inside temps of 75 to 80 with no shade and all the blinds closed. The Dometic unit was much better a little noisier but cooler when needed the most, the new unit is a little quieter but it does not cool as well and needs to be on cold setting all the time. navegator

RE: Windshield Washer Nozzles

Take sewing needle a big one and use that to aim the small ball with a hole on the plastic housing to align the pattern of squirt, aim the jets to the area where the upper part of the wipper passes, if there are three balls aim the center one a little higer and the other two a foot to a foot and a half on both sides, take unit out for a spin and test, if not good, reaim until you have a good spray patern at the speed that you normally travel on the highway. navegator

RE: Front wheels locked

If the transfer case and the front locks are electrical or electronically controled check that also, I had a Mitsubishi that the front locks where electrically engaged by a solenoid via the 4 wheel lever never had a problem until one day when I accidentally left the transfer lever in neutral and the front locks worked, I found out from the heat of the front pumpkin did not lock so was lucky. navegator

RE: Qualified apology to olbaby30

This person is probablly a foreigner visiting and evidentlly does not have the complete comand of the English language, at least he is trying to do so in English, so do not be so jugmental I wold like to see some of you trying to comunicate in a language that you do not know. Have a little more tolerance, if you travell to other countries you will not know where to purchase a lot of services or things that you need. Please do not tell me that you do not travell to other countres I know some of you do not and I respect that. navegator

RE: flat towing 2001 Chevy Tracker Manual shift 2 wheel drive

The Tracker is a Suzuki Gran Vitara, with a Chevrolet emblem and yes you can tow in four down, make shure that the shifter is in neutral, turn the key to the first position to unlock the steering wheel, and the hand brake off and youre good to go. The manual recomends to stop verey 200 miles and start the engine ETC, that is for the automatic transmition to lubricate the seals and rings etc. navegator

RE: Window screen on refrigerator vents

The screen will reduce the air speed a bit, take the upper fridge vent, four scews and install a 12 VDC fan blowing up, you can pick the electric current from the power supplied to the refrigerator by running a couple of wires down and install a fuse and a turn off switch. This fan will compensate for the screen and actually help in the summer and you can also place a screen on the chimeny area. navegator

RE: Trouble at Freedom Shores in Isla Aguada

Was that a 50 amp or a 30 amp outlet? Most 30 amp outlets are 120 V A/C and the 50 amp outlets are 240 V A/C. And please do not give me a lesson on A/C cirquits. Moral: Always check outlets before pluging into them not yust in Mexico but every where! navegator

RE: Search on bathroom smells

Shower and sink "P" traps some times retain residual soap that rots out even if you constantlly dump water, I use a small thin hose that I attach to the shower hose and spay and snake the traps clean, water on the toilet shoul hold and not drain, if it does the seal is compromissed. navegator

RE: gas mileage with a v10

FORD V-10 mailage will be approximate depending on the speed. At 55 Miles per hour speed. Between 7 to 9 miles per gallon flat land small hills, more miles if going with the wind less if going against it. Mountain driving is not possible due to the amount of terrain variation. City driving is approx 4 to 6 miles per gallon less in stop and go. Most of this is from my 2001 E-350 FORD V-10 24 foot motor home pulling a Suzuky Grand Vitara 2001 4 X 4 standard shift. Chevrolet based RV's have diferent engines and rear end configuration and will have diferent milage. navegator

RE: Tire Trade-in Value

Your tires are worthless in 2010 they should have been replaced, tires are good for 6 years max with out being used as in parked. I am replasing tires that I installed in 2007 and maybe have 6 to 8 hundred miles on them last trip right inside sidewall blew out, I will destroy the tires rather than having someone maimed or killed because the tires where used by an inosent person. Replace the tires and cut the old tires on the side wall so that they can not used. navegator
