RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

OK so I finally agree and just purchased a , http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/portable-50-amp-surge-protector-with-voltage-protection/56422. What else do I need? After a little thought, we still need power protection even if we have solar as we are not always dry camping. Still enjoy a good campground! Now if the OP had used the Progressive Protection Device, would he still had his burn up? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Power Protection Device, Do you?

Do you use a Power Protection Device when you hookup to power (anywhere, not just in a campground)? And what type? Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

Sounds like solar with the gen as backup is the way to go! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

We have run into many people in Mexico who have had to disconnect circuit protection devices because they are just too sensitive and refuse to pass current most of the time. We have never used one and have overnighted in RV parks in every state of Mexico without a problem. I remember to use my multimeter or simpler plug in device sometimes but not always. We too have ran into the same. Stayed at one of the better parks in Kino near a high end coach that could not keep the power connected. We had no problem but had no power protection. This has been the primary reason we have not coughed up the dollars for a power protection device. We have considered going the solar route and not connecting at all as you can't use your AC in most the RV parks in Mexico anyway! So wouldn't the dollars be better spent on solar than on power protection? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Follow-up to our troubles at Freedom Shores (Isla Aguada)

Which is better the Progressive Industries RV Power Protection Device or the Hughes Autoformer? Or the same? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: New Map!

What I found interesting was the two reported cases of Dengue Fever in Nogales, Son., MX of which is near where I live in So. AZ. Worked outside this morning and sprayed myself with a good Deet spray. NOTHING has been in the local News (Tucson or Nogales, AZ) about dengue fever being on our doorstep. Tho cases were reported on our local News of the first cases in Florida. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

New Map!

Just found this site today, healthmap.org. More info than most will want. It is a health map of the world that can be zoomed-in to a single country, region or town. http://healthmap.org/en/ rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Insurance Shopping

Nationwide here. I always shopped around every couple of years. With RVs I have only found Progressive & Nationwide to be competitive in my part of AZ. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

When reading posts during my searches I read that CoachNet had added nearly all the same features as GS TravelAssist to their roadside service Platinum Plus plan, http://coach-net.com/assistamerica/CNETAssistAmerica.pdf . This is great since we already have this plan so at least we have some coverage! We carry this plan because it covers trailers and there are times we are pulling a car trailer with the Jeep on it to Utah (just in case I break it playing in the slick rock). rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

After a fair amount of searching, I have not found balanced posting about GS TravelAssist so I am not going any further with this comparison. GS TraveAssist is a product of the owners of this Forum and hope they will respond to our concerns. I also looked up the premium for SkyMed and it is expensive when comparing price. They really are not the same product IMHO. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

I am doing some searching trying to find travelers that have used GS TravelAssist. I will post links as I find them. Here is the first, https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27396768.cfm. sunkatcher posted, " In November, 2009 I received a mailing concerning membership in Good Sam’s Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program. This program promised to get you home with your RV or get your family to your bedside in case of an illness. We were going to South Texas for our 13th winter and decided that this was a good idea to have this coverage, so we purchased it. Even though I was in good health, never been ill and had a complete physical before we left for the Valley in December, 2009, I suffered a “Brain Bleed Stroke” on January 30th, 2010. I spent 18 days in Weslaco’s Knapp Hospital and I was in no condition to drive our motorhome and Martha had never driven it. NO PROBLEM! We had Good Sam’s Insurance for this type of situation, RIGHT? We called Good Sam’s and they faxed us an 18 page questionnaire. WE RECEIVED NO HELP FROM THEM! I had to fly my daughter and her boyfriend to McAllen to drive us and the motorhome back to Paris, Texas. I had been a Good Sam’s Member as well as a Good Sam’s Roadside Assistance member for many years and trusted them fully. After all they were Good Sam’s. Who would have doubted them? After 2 months in physical therapy I took the matter to my Attorney, Bill Flanery. He contacted Good Sam’s and after speaking with them he informed me that I had “wasted my money” by joining this program. If I can prevent ONE person from making the same mistake that I made then writing this will be well worth it. Sincerely, Bruce Raney" I will link/post both good & bad! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

rocmoc: GS neglected to tell you that they do not fly you home. Only to the nearest suitable facility. That could be Guad or some other Mexican city. No one can provide a home service for under $100. Moisheh That is the kind of info I am looking for. I know you have mentioned it before but wanted to see you direct your response at the actual plan. Is this the only reason / difference? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

Attached is a chart comparing Good Sam TravelAssist, SkyMed Family & MedjetAssist Family insurance plans, http://www.goodsamtravelassist.com/compare.aspx . What am I missing as Good Sam appears to the deal? I was told today by two different Good Sam Reps that there is no difference in coverage between the USA & Mexico. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Trouble at Freedom Shores in Isla Aguada

On the positive side of customer service, We stayed at El Mirador RV Park in Playa Hautabampito, Sonora Mexico, http://ontheroadin.com/Mexico%20West%20Coast%202011/El%20Mirador%20Hotel.htm in May a few years back. We have always had to stay in one of the back rows away from the beach in the winter as we passed thu as the front row is always full. Well, in May the whole front row was ours. We had the 5er then and they said I could pull in forwards, drop & jockey the pickup out. Well in the jockeying out I took the hookup post out including the water. They were so nice, said they would have it repaired in an hour. When completed, they would not take a cent. No matter what they would not allow me to pay. So we spent every cent we could in their GREAT Restaurant. El Mirador has always been on our favorite list along with the great owners. As a side note, I still have the dent in the door of the pickup! Most of the places we have stayed have been like this, just sad the OP was not taken care of because that park was on our future bucket list. Now, maybe not! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Update for camping in Arizona

By Douglas Kreutz 0 Fire restrictions will be lifted, effective today, ? on the Coronado National Forest, Saguaro National Park and other public lands in Southeastern Arizona — thanks to a bounty of moisture from monsoon rains. Restrictions had been imposed on building campfires, smoking, shooting and other activities because of severe drought conditions that raised the risk of wildfires. “Due to widespread precipitation across the area, additional rain in the weather forecast, increased relative humidity, and a rise in moisture in live and dead trees, brush and grass, it has been determined that the likelihood of wildfire has lessened to the degree that the restrictions can be rescinded,” said a news release issued by land management agencies. Even with the restrictions lifted, officials emphasized that visitors to public lands should take measures to prevent wildfires. Among them: Before going hiking or camping, check with public land management agencies for fire regulations, restrictions or area closures. Metal fire rings or grills should be used where present. Wood placed on a fire should never exceed the size of the grill or fire ring. If you’re building a fire on the ground (in areas where it’s permitted), the site should be away from adjoining or overhanging flammable material, and the ground beneath and around the fire should be cleared of all flammable materials. On windy days, fires should be avoided if possible. Make sure a campfire is fully extinguished before leaving. Fires should be doused with water and dirt, and stirred with a shovel until completely cold to the touch. Contact reporter Doug Kreutz at dkreutz@azstarnet.com.com or at 573-4192.

Arizona State Forester Scott Hunt says fire restrictions on state-owned and state-managed lands in several counties will be rescinded Friday morning. Hunt says the weather has led to a decrease in wildfire danger. However, restrictions will still be in place in Mohave, La Paz and Yuma counties. People in those counties will be prohibited from starting or maintaining a campfire, coal or wood stove other than in a campsite or picnic area. Prescott National Forest officials are also lifting restrictions in the wake of recent rain and humidity. Fire Staff Officer Pete Gordon says significant rain across the forest this week and more forecast for Sunday factored into the decision.

RE: generator

When we had a 5er and was having the same problem we spoke to the Onan Dealer/Shop in Tucson, AZ. They told us they were having problems with the carb & the E10 fuel. They said they were unsuccessful in getting the carb to clean up and had gone to a Replacement policy only. The Cleaned carbs just would not work. This was one of the major reasons we went to a diesel rig including gen. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: What would stop you from RVing Mexico?

Guess it is time for our response. We plan / hope to find a single location to leave an RV and drive the car down. Problem is we are still exploring and enjoying! We still love our Arizona home and have no plans of letting it go. Love the monsoon season in AZ. BUT, being a desert rat the 60 degree winter temp is just toooooo cold. Have to head SOB to find the right winter temp, above 75 degrees. Want to also add we love our summer trips thu the Western USA. So many great places to see in this world! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
