RE: Summer RV'ing in the Southwest

OP, there is some incorrect information here. A lot of Southern AZ does not even get into the 100's during the day light hours let alone night time. Even Tucson has a limited number of nights that hot. It is HIGH desert so it cools quickly when the sun goes down, you will/can need a blanket even in the summer. The high desert locations can have a 40+ degree temp swing in a single day. The summer popular camping locations in the SouthWest will require reservations. It took us TWO years to finally get a site in the North Rim Campground (large enough for our Motorhome/reservation made in Dec and it was the last one). Sometime you can get in but be prepared with a backup campground or a boondocking location. You should have a great trip as each state has great places to see & visit. Most back roads are drivable and more enjoyable than spending time on a freeway. BUT beware of summits/passes. On a single trip thu UT & AZ a couple of years ago we crossed over 18 summits above 6,000 feet of which 8 near or about 8,000 feet. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Shorter Border Wait Times!

At the Nogales crossing, I am guessing 2/3 or more of the new personnel will be for the new truck traffic coming from the port expansion in Guaymas. Traffic on Hwy 19 is like I10 was 10 years ago and only suppose to increase. This new increase in truck traffic will and is badly effecting road surface condition. I19 is still very good but can see cracks starting in the road surface. Last report from ADOT, nothing was planned for road surfacing. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Valley fever

Live in AZ full-time and play/work in the dirt nearly every day. Have known a couple of people who have had Valley Fever and they all were older with weaker health. Not saying this is the only group but would be interesting if someone has data broke down by age group and/or health condition. If you look at the raw numbers above, it is a small percentage of the population. BUT we do take precautions. We avoid activity outside in dust storms and fortunately we live in an area that does not get many (one in the last 10 years). Most of the big dust storms are in an area between North of Marana to Phoenix and around Willcox. Our winds normally are from the South to the North. Also pets can catch Valley Fever so watch your 4 legged buddies. Valley fever is not just in AZ but is in all of SouthWest, California, Texas, Mexico and Central & South America. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Who were they?

Yesterday while traveling South on Hwy 19 near Nogales we were passed (we were pulling a trailer) by a caravan of 6-7 old Ambulances & Airport buses headed South. They were marked with a Rotary Club sticker on the door with Canadian & Mexico flag decals. Plates were from Alberta. Any idea who they were? rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Hwy 50 from Tahoe to Sacramento

After living in South Lake Tahoe & Placerville for YEARS, I grew to really dislike the drive. Easily doable with your rig but slow going because of a couple grades, traffic, curves and small towns/offs along the route. In the past there were a few areas of rough road surface, depends on the winter. If you are on the South end of the late, better to take 50 than to drive North for 80. If midway, head North and take 80. Just give yourself plenty of time. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Cat engine maintenance Tucson,AZ

Two places I recommend are Empire Cat, http://www.empire-cat.com/?utm_source=tucson-powersystems&utm_medium=maps&utm_campaign=local in Tucson and WW Williams,http://www.wwwilliams.com/ on Glenn in Tucson. Both are excellent, prices are nearly the same and per hourly cheaper than the RV centers. Empire took care of my Cat Cooling system & WW Williams my Allison service & Air Brakes service. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: I-10 Through Phoenix

Yes! After 10am, the traffic will start to thin out. It starts getting heavy again between 2-3pm. I agree with Jim. When we have to go through Phoenix, especially on a weekday, we leave Tucson around 8 which puts in downtown Phoenix a little after 10. Takes about 30- 45 minutes to get across/through the downtown area. :C I agree with Jim & Captain! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Help with Verizon - Out of Service Area

When in NC we live in an "out of service" area for any kind of wireless. Verizon terminated our service with no problem or fees. lizzie Same here! We tried to go wireless at our AZ S&B home but found we could not get data at a level above old dial-up. We barely get a good/fair voice signal. Worked with Verizon Support and they cancelled our USB modem data plan & contract with no fees. They even told us to keep the modem for when we traveled in the RV away from home. So now we have had wireless voice and landline internet at the house. Work with Support as they have to power to change & cancel. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: trip report-- San Felipe/ Sonoyta

About how long is the drive. I intend to do it in reverse next month. What about using the road from puerto penasco along the gulf. My problem is i am coming up 15. I have to camp at santa ana, turn back my vehicle permit at caborca then get across to san felipe. I am not confident that can be done in one day, and I know of no RV parks, except in PP. I know i can get from santa Ana to PP in a day, I did it last year. I suppose i could go from PP to sonoyta and across to San Felipe in a day. can I? From Santa Ana it would be a long hard day. Easier to stay a night, day or two in Puerto Penasco as the new toll road starts on the North edge of town. The toll road starts just a few miles from the PP RV parks. Texan posted a trip report on here when he drove the new toll road. Can do a search of his post back about 3 years ago. Bottom line is he reported it was an easy drive. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: MH Licensing costs in NV, AZ and Utah?

I am surprised that no one has suggested a LLC from Montana. :b Or South Dakota....:) Problem is OP really did not indicate if he/she was going to full-time in an RV or move to a S&B while taking the RV for recreation. If full-time you both are spot on but entirely different if you are going to live in a S&B. As noted earlier take a couple of trips to determine where the new home state should be located. We took 3 trips across the Northern part of the USA coast to coast and 2 across the South coast to coast. After narrowed down to AZ we took 3 trips and input from friends who were also traveling AZ looking before we found our new home. Also made charts of taxes, fees & weather to use in the finally decision. Weather was a biggy as we lived in California Snow Country, yes there was snow then (LOL), and was not going to live in SNOW at our new home S&B location. Also wanted to be able to leave from the house with the dirt bike & 4x4. More to look at than just RV registration & other RV fees. Consider Weather & Good luck! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Campground wi-Fi

Agree Zero or less! We even tried using our Verizon usb modem thu our Cradlepoint router. Successful but burned thu our data allowance too quickly. So while we use our Roku & OTA antenna at home ONLY, we use Dish with a Trav'ler on the road in the Motorhome. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
