RE: Bringing a motorcycle or not to Mexico?

I have many times but only ride in rural areas & off-road. No TIP required for 250cc. I cable lock EVERYWHERE to an anchor/post or something unmovable or the bike/motorcycle/scooter WILL disappear. Also cable lock my UTV when taken SOB. Of course I also cable lock everything at night in States. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: 40 days Boondocking / Dry Camping

Just returned from a 51 day trip thu Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Nevada. Boondock & Dry Camp 40 days of the 51. Would have been more but someone caravan back with us to AZ who needed shore power since the Temps were 100+ degrees. Drove only 200 miles on freeways on the way to Pacific Northwest but drove freeway 700 miles of the homeward bound leg. Used Free Campsites, https://freecampsites.net/, and US Campgrounds, http://www.uscampgrounds.info/ for all the camping. NO Walmarts, LOL! Great Trip! rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja 720 Watts Solar 660 amp hours of Battery excellent ! I'm looking for possible boondock sites in Utah.. would appreciate a pm with lat/long and any other info you might share.. thanks PM'd all sites we stayed at came from the two websites posted on here and checked on google earth. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: WOW!!

Good argument for not letting older RV's into a park. Older RV does not mean someone doesn't have $. I chose not to put no more money in a bad investment than I have to. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: 40 days Boondocking / Dry Camping

Sounds great. I have 540 Watts Solar and 500 amp hours of Battery. Have portable solar generator. Couple questions: 1) Is your 720 watts on top of your rig? 2) You mention friends needed AC...which implies you did not. Are you able to run AC for short periods All solar is on the roof. Have to run the gen when using AC, takes two units to cool the rig. We tried to stay high enough in the mountains to limit gen use. Mostly successful. No replacement for a gen when it is hot and you need AC. Leg home was just too hot so we also used the shore power. Sorry about not being clear. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Which route to San Carlos

IMHO, Coming from the East cross at Nogales when going South to San Carlos. Return thu Douglas. Coming from North of Nogales use Nogales for both going & return. Coming from the West cross at Nogales or Lukeville but return thu Lukeville. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Heart fluttering, skipping beats

RE: highway 191 from Green River Wy to Vernal Utah

Camped in the Green River CG at Dino Nat Mont two weeks ago. River is running at max so the Bugs were really bad. Only stayed one night and moved on up to Flaming Gorge. Did enjoy the Dino bone wall. Arrive early as the campground was full before dusk, even the first come side. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: What's your Boondocking Temperature?

We turn the gen on in the high 80s, just gets too hot in the MH without a lot of shade and/or breeze. Outside is fine to 100. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Florida SP's Still Available

Just as a follow-up to my recent posting in which I voiced surprise at how some Florida State Parks are booked solid for next winter, I've been able to work my way down the east coast, over to the central area, and up the west side by booking pretty well state parks only (my preferred type of camping), all just by staying north of Highway 70. I've done this before and while yes, it can be cool at times, generally it's still quite warm. (I guess having worked many years in the Artic helps.) By the way, if you attempt this, don't expect to finish in an afternoon. :) Ron, what parks did you get in? When we made our reservations months ago there were only one or two spaces remaining in the parks we will be staying in. One of our parks we normally stay in was all ready full and others parks we were not able to get our normal space and had to accept a lesser space. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Pickup truck permit issues

When did this start? Had no problem getting a TIP for my 3/4 ton heavy duty pulling the 5er into Mexico. Wasn't a 10 year like the 5er had but was good for 180 days. OR are we talking about a different issue? rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Extreme Newbie question

I have camped at the Reef RV park at the end of May and the first week of June. Used my AC only in the afternoon, opened up the windows at night. It may get to 100 in town, but the breeze off the sea is nice. Water temp is great for swimming (watch for stingrays). Easy drive-I have done it alone many times. Reef is in Rocky Point and we also have stayed there. Good location (the new pier has messed things up a bit) but there are a couple other locations if you want to be closer to downtown! rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Extreme Newbie question

May / June is hot in Mexico and in some areas a lot or the RV Parks are closed for the summer. Must check ahead of time with the park to make sure they will be open. Have been South of AZ in Mexico in May on the beach. On the beach can / may be OK but when you go inland the heat becomes overbearing and that is coming from someone who lives in AZ full-time. This time of the year I would make it easy on myself for a first trip and go to Rocky Point / Puerto Penasco or San Felipe. Both are easy drive (Rocky Point the easier of the two) and require NO Paperwork, only Mexican Insurance. Maybe Kino Bay but a harder drive but still a nice short summer location. Some of the Parks in Mazatlan close and depending on the location a bug problem (no-see-ums). Takes a few days to Mazatlan vs same day arrival for Rocky Point and San Felipe and easiest border crossing is Rocky Point. Just a little note, Rocky Point is some time referred to as Arizona's only Beach. If winter further South into Mexico would be best. Good luck and enjoy! rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Extreme Newbie question

Great suggestions here but the OP is going on to the Pacific Northwest. RVers don't normally head to the Pacific Northwest in the WINTER (best time to be at a Mexican Beach) so OP must be considering Summer. Mexico beaches are not so great during Monsoon Season or in the heat of the summer with humidity. Even in Spring & Fall most Northerns can't take the heat. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Extreme Newbie question

First question is when / what time of the year? Makes a big diff as temp can become an issue. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Do not use credit cards for fuel

I got a better recommendation. Don't rv or even take your car to Mexico. Horror stories go back 50 years. You are prey down there in more ways than one. I personally know two people with horror stories including vehicle theft, extortion/bribe requests from police 25 years ago, and armed robbery 15 years ago. But do what you want. In Canada I was chased for blocks by someone intent upon returning something i had dropped.. last story not true. I was shook down in Goodland, Kansas by the LOE, "Pay me $ and you won't have to go see the judge" and the ticket never showed on my driving record. Had my credit card over charged at a restaurant in Nevada City, Ca and info stolen at a Chevron station in Tonopah, Nv. Stopped in Alabama by a LOE and told I should go have his buddy work on my trailer when there was not anything the matter with it. Said OK but kept heading West. Guess I better avoid the USA. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Solar combiner box

Should I run 10 awg wire from the box down to the controller or bigger can't find uv protected wire in larger sizes I used #4 as recommended by HandyBob's Solar site, https://handybobsolar.wordpress.com/rv-solar-quick-answer/ and ran the wire enclosed in Conduit. Easy purchase at any local electrical supply. What is critical is the length of the wire from the junction box to the controller. Longer the run heavier the wire. All explained on Bob's site. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja
