RE: Copper Canyon

IMHO, the best RV trip is traveling to Creel and camping in the old KOA park. We had a Ball taking the train to the coast and driving down into the Canyon to the Lost Mission. We went in May. It can snow in the winter in Creel. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Los Barriles and Todos Santos RV Parks - Been There?

Stayed in Las Palmas Tropicales in Casita del Mar a few years back. They were talking then about opening the park. Very nice people and we had a GREAT stay. At that time there was NO RV park in Todos Santos I would have stayed at. We did drive around and check out the parks. The beach is a surfer beach. Very rough, BIG surf. The Casita would shake during the night when the big wave pounded the beach. Made you wonder if they were coming to where we were. We also checked out Los Barriles but found most parks packed in smallish spaces. Most were located on the beach but the campsites are well back with no view of the water. There is free dry camping/boondocking North of town. At the time there were plenty of people staying there and you could SEE the water. You are exposed more to the wind at the boondocking location. Los Barriles is very windy and a sail boarding location. There are off-roading trails. Good luck, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico "I should proof my post, sorry about that."

RE: Nogales Mariposa Crossing!

Hi Moisheh, Maybe it was the time of the year! While the lights over the Bus/RV lane said it was Open, Customs had a Pickup parked across the lane so you could not enter. Watched a Bus wait over 20 minutes before anyone came out to inspect. Pickup was still blocking the lane after we passed thu. After you get pass the gate there was a large Xray machine the Bus/RV has to go thu. Backing up before the gate, there is now only ONE lane coming in from the toll road to the lanes for the crossing. Buses take the bypass road thu/around the West side of Nogales avoiding the Toll road and the need to cross lanes. IMHO not an improvement over what was there before all the big bucks were spent. Only good thing was the smaller number of vehicles attempting to cross. May be just me not liking the changes. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Nogales Mariposa Crossing!

Just a short trip across the border without the Motorhome. For RVs: Going South is fine, stay in the Right Lane (Truck Lane). Problem is returning North, INSANE! RVs are required to be in the RIGHT Bus Lane. We live North of Nogales and I will NEVER bring the Motorhome back north thu Nogales. This is IMHO. Too many issues with the crossing for me to waste my time. Problems are on the USA side except getting into the Bus Lane. I will travel to Lukeville or Santa Teresa. Good luck! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Mexico RV tourist....

Rocmoc: tolls, the price of fuel, hurricane damage and media is not stopping Mexicans going North to shop. And they are not stopping Mexicans from vacationing in Mexico.. And they typically earn less money than the people in the US. There are a few reasons that no one whats to touch. IMHO, we are seeing more Mexicans coming North to shop & vacation because of the growing Middle Class in Mexico. Yes I know there are many in Mexico still living in poverty. And the higher cost of goods in Mexico including FUEL. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Mexico RV tourist....

In general, 50% plus decrease! Reasons, COST (fuel, tolls, insurance & campground fees - in this order), bad press and hurricane damage from monsoon season - again in this order. As a side note, here in Arizona we have more Mexicans coming North to shop & vacation than ever. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Furnace repair update!

Posted about 3 weeks ago furnace pushed air but would not light. Turned out to be the Limit Switch. Repaired at All RV in Tucson for $187. This is the second time they have completed work for me and I recommend them if you have an issue while in the Tucson, AZ area. Their hourly rate is (at this time) $88/hr compared to the Big Boys $100-$125/hr. http://www.allrvtucson.com/ rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Mexican Insurance How Much $$

4X4Dodge, If you have Progressive or Nationwide Insurance in the States, you may only need to purchase Mexico Liability Insurance. If You have either Progressive or Nationwide, verify with your Insurance Company first you do have the Mexico Comp & Coll coverage. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico with Nationwide Insurance

RE: tolls

For planning/budget purposes we have always budgeted $1 toll / $1 fuel cost. Fuel & tolls will be one of your greatest adventure cost! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico__

RE: Mr. Heater Buddy use question!

If you want a safe heater look for the Platinum Cat. It has a chimney. It has a thermostat. It has an igniter. It is more expensive, but is the only one I would consider. Thanks but already have a Mr. Heater that came my way for nearly FREE! Have used it in the past outside the MH and worked very well. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Mr. Heater Buddy use question!

I would be trouble shooting why the furnace stopped working. That is a real problem. If it was just that it ran your battery down, you have it set too high. The furnace fan takes a LOT of power. When we camped in Yellowstone in Sept 2011, we QUICKLY learned to turn the furnace down to 55 at night and sleep under a lot of quilts. First thing in the AM, we would turn the furnace back up and stay under the covers until the RV warmed up. Little off topic but fan blew but did not ignite. Already checked the sail switch, it was good. Either the board or the valve. Boards normally fail before the valve so will go with a Dinosaur board. Much much better reviews than the Manufacturers' boards. We have used the furnace many times before in freezing temps without problems. It was just time! Thanks! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Mr. Heater Buddy use question!

Yes furnace is being fix! Yes would have an outside air source! Grew up in cold winter Kansas with a single big stove in the center of the house. Forgot that none of our cat ever burst into flames, LOL! Thanks everyone! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: San Rafael Swell

I was there last week and had no problem driving my heavy DP Motorhome pulling a Jeep & dirtbike on the front in 7 miles on Temple Mountain Road from HWY70 to the 5 Miles of Hell Trailhead. Camped there for 3 days while we rode the trail and headed out back South to Warmer weather. It was Wet and Cold with 30s at night and mid-50s during the daytime with a couple of showers a day. Not normal weather! Last time I was in the area a few years ago and same dates it was 102 running the AC 24/7, can't win, LOL! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Mr. Heater Buddy use question!

Just returned from a trip to Utah. Weather turned out to be much much colder than normal for this time of year. Would have been a problem but temps went down to near freezing and the furnace stopped working. Our heat pumps don't work below low 40s and are our normal backup. Had a little electric heater and with the use of one stove burner we survived (not happily). Competed the trail ride (5 Miles Of Hell in San Rafael Swell) and headed back South to warmer weather. Sadly we cut what was to be a great trip short. Next time we will pack the Mr. Heater Buddy for use. ONE problem, our Cats! What do people do or how do you use your Mr. Heater or other brands of the same type of heater when pets are around? Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
