RE: Between Solar Controller & Batteries, What?

Thank you EVERYONE for the responses. A special thanks to bka0721 of the fuse/switch I wanted to use but had not found any mounting Pics. Wiring is setup for more panels in the future if desired. Also found little cost difference, IMHO, between the heavier gauge wire and the lighter so went with the heavier as recommended by HandyBob. Thanks again, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Ok to run a generator at night if no one is around?

Run the gen, we do. BUT have new alarms, smoke & CO2 as they are only good for a few years. But we are always not near anyone. We camp mostly in warm locations so this is normal for us and the people we have been around. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Between Solar Controller & Batteries, What?

RE: PAL Rv Park

We checked out an RV Park on the West end of the lake once about 6 years ago. Didn't stay there as we like Chimulco. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Slabs and other sorrows

Let's have a reality check here. The people at the slabs (that live there full time) pay sales tax. Which is a pittance compared to the services they have received up to this point. Fire, Police, Water, etc. I'll take that deal. If you have read my previous posts I have excluded full time RVers. Why if they are also boondocking, dry camping or stealth camping? What is the difference? Just wondering! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico Because generally speaking the full timers are not going to be there long enough to freeload on the public services such as the Police and the Fire Department like the people living at the slabs do. So what is the difference (in your words) of a full timer freeloading multiple locations adding up in time and a person at the Slabs staying put for the same amount of time? Both depend on public services should they be needed, don't pay Property Taxes or State Income Taxes. Respectfully still just trying to understand the difference! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Mexico newbie questions

A good place to start is http://www.rollinghomes.com/mexico%20book.htm and their book. Church's book, in the past, has been considered the Bible for RVing in Mexico. Can be purchased on Amazon and other sites. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Parking for Copper Canyon Train

There is a campground at the South end of town on the Left. This is where we left our RV. They will take you to the train station or you can walk. We loved the train but only went to the Pink Hotel / Posada Barrancas Mirador , http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g151927-d1163899-Reviews-Posada_Barrancas_Mirador-Copper_Canyon_Northern_Mexico.html a little over halfway. We took the First Class train and made our way to the Wine / Drink car. Had a great time. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: 2 - 2000 watt vs 1 - 3000 watt noise level

Camped near someone running 2 Yamaha 2000s last month. They were loud! Much louder than my Onan diesel 7500. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Video Blog / Vlog in Mexico

Anyone have any Vlogs / Video Blogs in/of Mexico that they follow? I have found a couple in the States I enjoy but nothing in Mexico. Found these things on Youtube and they are a great alternative to Blogs. Still enjoy a good blog but the video takes the blog to the next level. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Quartzsite snowbirds not here..Update They have arrived.

Could be our weather this year, even tho it is better than most of the States. The weather has been either very cold, very wet or very warm; very little moderate weather. Today Tucson was fogged-in which never happens & there was snow a few weeks ago! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Pack Rats

d-CON in the pest section of hardware or grocery store. We have them big time also in AZ and killing them works best. Just put containers around the tires so they will eat it instead of coming in your coach or going after the wires of your vehicles. Have many friends that try to do the nice / right thing and have big bills repairing their vehicles and outside wiring. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Slabs and other sorrows

Group I hang with out here at the slabs have been checking other areas for next winter. The LTVAs look promising even though it's $180 for 6 months. Areas are clean and I saw none of the "throw away" "run away" types there. Each LTVA has it's own amenities and will probably become my home next winter. David Slab City Lifestyle will not be the same. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Things to try in 2015

Was there 13+ years ago while diving the local reef. Was one of our best Mexico trips. We were in the area before the cruise ships started stopping and were the only ones in the whole place the day we were there. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

How many watts of Solar do you have?

Curious how much do you have mount or portable on/for their RV? We are getting ready to add a system so for now we have ZERO. Looking at trying to arrange around 600 watts on a very crowded roof. Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Quartzsite Arizona, 2015

Hi Russ: I know you will charm them all @ Q! You are one hell of an Ambassador. Is Alamos part of the free zone? I thought you needed a TIP for that town. Moisheh No Alamos is free as well Russ, are you sure? When did it change as it didn't use to be. I just did a search on Google and could not find any where a change had occurred. Here is a map of my understanding, http://www.mexadventure.com/MexicoTravel/Sonora/Puerto-Penasco-Tourist-Cards.cfm#sonora . rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
