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

RE: Typical Fuel Mileage You Get With Your Gas or Diesel Class A

JCGibson, When you look at the posts and the reported mileage, take in consideration where they are in the States. East Coast & Midwest doesn't have the grades / mountains like the West thus East Coasters will post higher mileage. Have driven the entire USA found this to be true time and time again. Mexico has some grades that makes the West look like it is flat. I am primarily speak of the main traveled roads. Everywhere has some back road that should be only driven with a 4x4, not an RV. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Typical Fuel Mileage You Get With Your Gas or Diesel Class A

My past '05 Diesel Dodge Ram 4x4 pulling 19,000lb 5er toyhauler; 12.5 mpg to 15 mpg depending on pulling speed of 50mph in Mexico to 66 mpg in States. My past 29' gas A with 454; 6 mpg in most ideal conditions, 3 mpg pulling a trailer/toad or in less than ideal conditions. 60-65mph. My current 36' Cat 275hp DP 24480lb gross; 11 mpg in most ideal conditions @ 60mph. 9 mpg pulling toad or less than ideal condition or 66mph. Rarely below 9 except crossing 8,000' summits in Utah. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Minimum Wage

I don't always haggle as my time is worth money. Am I going to haggle for a 10 or 20 percent discount? Most of the time NO. A dollar of two means nothing to my lifestyle but can make a good day for a vendor and his or her family. I am just looking for the other person to be fair with me. Plus I tip, a fair tip not a great tip! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: No More Monthly Fuel Price Increases

For the money, I think Canada is the better value. BUT not in the winter, too cold. That is why the largest share of RVers in Mexico are Canadian. Heck too cold in AZ currently! If the increase in fuel is enough to keep you from traveling in Mexico when compared to the total cost then ya should stay put in the cold. Ya can't afford to drive anywhere then! When it gets cold enough there is no problem too great to stop me from looking for a campground with warm weather. Even if I have to travel to Mexico or Florida! Maybe a flight to Hawaii? :B :C rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Inverter/charger battery type setup question.

Hi, What is the average temperature you RV in? Set the charger for that value. Myself, I'd favor the above 80 setting as it is a little safer. It would mean longer charge times, so it depends on how the recharging is being done. Most of mine is done via solar. If it were generator I'd pick the below 80 setting. Batteries are in an outside compartment. We camp in freezing weather and nearly 100 degrees but almost always Sunny! At this time gen but hopefully solar later this year. Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Inverter/charger battery type setup question.

Unless you have an inverter/charger with optional battery temperature probe and it is installed, you will need to re-program for temperature at least twice a year. Should not take more than 20 seconds. Did have the optional temp probe at one time but not installed. Thanks will pull the manual and look into. Hopefully I can find the probe, has been a while. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Inverter/charger battery type setup question.

So I am replacing my old house batteries that came with the MH. Wanted to make sure Inverter/Charger is setup correctly to max the life of the new batteries. In the operations manual for Inverter/Charger under setup, you input type of the batteries. I have no problem with type but there is a setup for Wet below 80 degrees or Wet above 80 degrees. I am in both temps nearly equally thu out the year. Had the old batteries set on Wet under 80 degrees. What would you do; under 80, above 80 or change the setup with the seasons? Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico
