RE: Hanksville, Moab or Green River, UT- Free Dumpsite?

Thanks, that was my fall-back plan. Sometime it is just more interesting & detailed when you get feedback from RVers who have been there. Thanks again, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Motorcycle in Mexico - Pros and con?

I also purchase Mexican Liability Insurance for my bike just in case! I also did the same when I took a UTV SOB. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Hanksville, Moab or Green River, UT- Free Dumpsite?

Thanks for the responses. All ready use the site Gary but when I went on to Google Earth to check out the Maverick Station, it was impossible to tell if and where the dump was. So was hoping to get first hand info, Thanks Semperfi. First choice is free but have no problem paying if not available. Thanks again but would love more first-hand knowledge / info! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Hanksville, Moab or Green River, UT- Free Dumpsite?

Need a free dumpsite in one of the three locations. Online I have found Maverick Gas Station in Moab but anyone know for sure? Also found online Goblins State Park's dumpsite is free even if you aren't staying there, again anyone know for sure? Will be Boondocking enroute and need to dump before spending time in San Rafael Swell. Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Motorcycle in Mexico - Pros and con?

I dirt bike (motorcycle) / off road and the only concern is Lock Up your bike when you are not on or with your bike. I put a lock thu the rear sprocket and cable lock to a pole (or something permanent). A couple of guys I know (first hand knowledge) have returned from being in a store and found their bike gone. Of course I do the same with our bicycles when we take them out also. I also do the same when out in the desert of the SoutWest USA. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Strange weather pattern Rockport Tx

Yes, El Nino has returned in the Pacific. Here in AZ we are already have some storms that are more like early monsoon type. Where we live, we had record rainfall last week. Expect it to continue and also the NOAA long range for the SouthWest is for a wetter than normal spring. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Short day trip drives Heber City Utah

Beehive Hotsprings, http://www.dtmag.com/dive-usa/locations/HomesteadCraterUT.html . Best hotspring we have ever been to. Nearby resort is worth the money, IMHO! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Glacier-How many days on each side

Agree, we loved Glacier over Yellowstone also. But there are 3 sides, the Northern end of the Lake in Canada is great. There is a tour cruise of the lake from the North end of the lake is well worth the expense. IMHO, at least 3 days at each side not including travel time is really required. Sadly a late spring / summer snow storm hit the week before (late June) and the Going to the Sun road was still closed. SO we have to return, still on our bucket list. Next time will also include Banff National Park in Canada as well. Just remember if you cross into Canada, any firearms have to be left in the USA. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Solar on when shore power?

Thank you everyone! I'm not going to worry about it since I have breakers between panels & controller and batteries & controller. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Solar on when shore power?

Solar Controller 14.8 Inverter/charger 14.1 Currently MH is in covered garage so zero output from Solar and the Shore Power is plugged. Figured that was OK but more concerned about when it is at a park with power. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

Solar on when shore power?

Do you leave you solar power on when you connect to shore power? Or throw the breaker between the solar panels and controller? AND/or throw the breaker between the Solar Controller (Morningstar MPPT 60) and the batteries? Just turned my system up yesterday and it's working great!!!!! Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: HELP! Financed Vehicles and Vehicle Permits?

Years ago I attempted to get a permit at K21 south of Nogales, Son with a computer generated copy, from my computer, of my current registration from Arizona DMV online site. They would not accept it and I had to return to the AZ DMV office in Nogales, AZ and get a copy from the office with their stamp/seal. AND I have always had to provide a letter from the lien holder. If I owned the vehicle outright I had to have the title & registration with me. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Snowdocking in the Sierra: are there ungated areas?

I can tell you from experince, even if a road is not gated it maybe closed. You have to ask the local authority in charge of the land the road/roads are on, National Forest, State Forest, BLM & etc. Cost me a court appearance in South Lake Tahoe and $250. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Battery Trojan vs. LIfeline

I used this site and paid $300 for each of my LifeLine batteries, http://www.powerstridebattery.com/lifeline-agm-batteries/lifeline-gpl-4c-6volt-deep-cycle-agm-battery Since the batteries are sealed they are non-toxic and shipped FedEx without any extra cost. Shipping is FREE at present and was also when I purchased mine. Batteries arrived in just a couple of days and they are GREAT! Bought mine in Jan. '15. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: I 10 in Texas

Have driven this route many times with current Motorhome and past 5er. Both can be a pain weekday rush hours. I recommend going thu on the weekend and timing is everything. Go thu San Antonio mid-late afternoon Sat using the North Bypass loop and stay the night at the Rest Area about 30-40 miles East of SA on 10. Get up early and go thu Houston Sunday morning as early as possible directly thu downtown 10. Worked for us every time. Texas has Rest Areas as nice as a lot of campgrounds with Wifi & Security in some and far from the road noise. Good luck! rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

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?

What is between your Solar Controller and Batteries? Fuse, Breaker, Disconnect, nothing or what? Med to larger system; 720 watts, MPPT Controller & #4 wire to Controller and three feet of #2 to Batteries. Already have breaker between controller & panels. Thanks, rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

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
