RE: Is your S&B the Land of Hard Work?

One reason we have cut most trips to 3 weeks. For us, multiple 3 weeks trips are working better as we can return and keep the B&M in good shape. Works for us because we are already in the SouthWest. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Starting to plan an Alaska trip what are the boon docking

Do a search on youtube. There are a couple of good channels of the journey with boondocking locations. Here are a few, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiCG0ehE-Zc9GnwCcFqtAhw https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtA9_KrZQLVzUN_OFovA8iA https://www.youtube.com/user/gonewiththewynns You will have to search their channels for their Alaska trips. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Escaping summer heat while in the southwest?

RE: Negative dew points in AZ

Really not a problem. We run the evaporative / swamp cooler until monsoon season then switch over to AC. Ave daily temps drop when monsoon season starts. House currently 75 degree with 31% humidity and 102 degrees 12% outside. Today high suppose to be 105+. When you jump out of the pool at 2 - 12% humidity and a little breeze, It is COLD! Would rather be here! Work in the morning when it is cool. Woke to 61 this morning. Took a bike ride, worked in the garden and now watching motocross & swim after. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Road to Creel - Copper Canyon

You can take your TIP and FMM anywhere in the country but you have to obtain at the border. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Entering Baja California 10-Year Tip Required Now?

My experience has always been you had to obtain your FMM (Visa before) at the border and could obtain the TIP further into Mexico. BUT if you did not obtain the FMM at the border, you had to go back to the border or obtain one at an International Airport with a stiff penalty. This occurred to friends we were traveling (RVs) with a number years ago. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Road to Creel - Copper Canyon

We stayed in the Old KOA and had a great time. We traveled 16 and the only problem was the double & triple parking in Cuauhtermoc. There were times we were in the oncoming lanes or barely able to pass. The last 20 miles or so is a beautiful drive winding into the mountains. We were there in May with perfect weather in Creel, 70s and no bugs, but a bit warm at the canyon floor, 90s. rocmoc n AZ

RE: COE Parks

Beware not all COE campgrounds are ran by the COE. Here in AZ they were turned over to AZ Parks Service and there are no dicounts, full price only. If you are at a COE ran Campground, they will have a DVD that shows COE built facilities. DVD is named "Your State by State Guide, Recreation opportunities with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers" www.CorpsLakes.us Got the DVD at a COE Campground in New Mexico. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Are there any locations near Yuma with shaded parking?

Do you have the silver reflective material in your windows? I hope that doesn't mean they're opaque. You can not see thu but the material just goes in the window temporarily. Once the sun is off the window and/or the temp cools you can pull the it out. This is what I use, http://www.homedepot.com/p/Reflectix-48-in-x-25-ft-Double-Reflective-Insulation-BP48025/100052556 rocmoc n AZ

RE: Are there any locations near Yuma with shaded parking?

Do you have the silver reflective material in your windows? This helps a lot and can be purchased at Home Depot. We have it for all of our windows for summer boondocking and also use it in cold winter weather. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Solar combiner box questions

Using the PVC boxes and tubing on the roof will be getting alot of the SUN UV rays... The PVC Electrical lines and products sure don't do well over time having to be sitting in the high sun like that... I still however like the LOWES/HOME DEPOT PVC Electrical Boxes idea with weather tight lids and PVC tubing. On the edge of the trailer roof line you can drill out a large hole in the center of the PVC Electrical box and route your solar lines into the trailer coming inside on the ceiling mounted cabinets we all have... Then you go from there using the PVC lines to where the cables need to go to... This allows all of your solar cabling be inside PVC boxes and tubing... I am referring to these type of PVC ELECTRICAL Boxes with tubing connections on their sides. These come in all sizes and multiple number of tubing connections to suit your needs... http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/400_compressed/94/94b417c8-4a13-47e1-a0e2-aae9d4abe824_400_compressed.jpg height=300 https://static.grainger.com/rp/s/is/image/Grainger/4FYY4_AS01?$mdmain$ height=300 This is the way I am going to install my solar install on my off-road POPUP trailer roof. No drilling on the roof line at all... I can only drill into the wood side portion of the roof and will want to do that on the side of the trailer - not on the top... I think I would want my electric components inside my trailer near the tie-in point for the batteries with meters and controls etc... Mainly so I can easily see what is going on. The combiner boxes will up near the roof and all feeding a solar panel inside the trailer near the battery install area.... Just my thoughts... Roy Ken This is what I used for 6 panels and I also place aluminum duct tape on the top and sides to reflect sunlight and heat. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Rim Rock Drive, Co. Nat. Monument

We stayed at the park on top and drove the tunnels last summer in our 12'6" tall 36' MH pulling a toad. You have to drive down the center of the tunnels to clear the roof. NO problem, just watch for oncoming traffic. The tunnels do have a curve in them so you can not see the other end so take a deep breath and hope. Speed limit is 25mph but the cars speed. Came down early Sunday morning and no more passed thu a tunnel and met a tour bus coming up. Luck has to be on our side. BUT I would do it again as the stay was worth it. Temps can be hot and the flies were bad. This was in June and the Camp Host said the flies had just arrived. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Ft.Pickens, Florida. WiFi ?

2 1/2 years since we were there but at that time NO Wifi anywhere. Not much to the campground except the sites and a little store as you enter. Everything else is further into the Park, Fort, Tower & Gun Emplacements. Yes 30 amp in our site but was cold so was plenty for our 50amp rig. Sites were tight with a small area to store trailer/dolly as there was not enough room in the site. Campground office is a couple of miles before the Campground (may have been wifi there, never tried). Enjoyed the Fort and moved on. rocmoc n AZ
