RE: Are there any locations near Yuma with shaded parking?

Do you have the silver reflective material in your windows? I hope that doesn't mean they're opaque. You can not see thu but the material just goes in the window temporarily. Once the sun is off the window and/or the temp cools you can pull the it out. This is what I use, http://www.homedepot.com/p/Reflectix-48-in-x-25-ft-Double-Reflective-Insulation-BP48025/100052556 rocmoc n AZ

RE: Are there any locations near Yuma with shaded parking?

Do you have the silver reflective material in your windows? This helps a lot and can be purchased at Home Depot. We have it for all of our windows for summer boondocking and also use it in cold winter weather. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Solar combiner box questions

Using the PVC boxes and tubing on the roof will be getting alot of the SUN UV rays... The PVC Electrical lines and products sure don't do well over time having to be sitting in the high sun like that... I still however like the LOWES/HOME DEPOT PVC Electrical Boxes idea with weather tight lids and PVC tubing. On the edge of the trailer roof line you can drill out a large hole in the center of the PVC Electrical box and route your solar lines into the trailer coming inside on the ceiling mounted cabinets we all have... Then you go from there using the PVC lines to where the cables need to go to... This allows all of your solar cabling be inside PVC boxes and tubing... I am referring to these type of PVC ELECTRICAL Boxes with tubing connections on their sides. These come in all sizes and multiple number of tubing connections to suit your needs... http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/400_compressed/94/94b417c8-4a13-47e1-a0e2-aae9d4abe824_400_compressed.jpg height=300 https://static.grainger.com/rp/s/is/image/Grainger/4FYY4_AS01?$mdmain$ height=300 This is the way I am going to install my solar install on my off-road POPUP trailer roof. No drilling on the roof line at all... I can only drill into the wood side portion of the roof and will want to do that on the side of the trailer - not on the top... I think I would want my electric components inside my trailer near the tie-in point for the batteries with meters and controls etc... Mainly so I can easily see what is going on. The combiner boxes will up near the roof and all feeding a solar panel inside the trailer near the battery install area.... Just my thoughts... Roy Ken This is what I used for 6 panels and I also place aluminum duct tape on the top and sides to reflect sunlight and heat. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Rim Rock Drive, Co. Nat. Monument

We stayed at the park on top and drove the tunnels last summer in our 12'6" tall 36' MH pulling a toad. You have to drive down the center of the tunnels to clear the roof. NO problem, just watch for oncoming traffic. The tunnels do have a curve in them so you can not see the other end so take a deep breath and hope. Speed limit is 25mph but the cars speed. Came down early Sunday morning and no more passed thu a tunnel and met a tour bus coming up. Luck has to be on our side. BUT I would do it again as the stay was worth it. Temps can be hot and the flies were bad. This was in June and the Camp Host said the flies had just arrived. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Ft.Pickens, Florida. WiFi ?

2 1/2 years since we were there but at that time NO Wifi anywhere. Not much to the campground except the sites and a little store as you enter. Everything else is further into the Park, Fort, Tower & Gun Emplacements. Yes 30 amp in our site but was cold so was plenty for our 50amp rig. Sites were tight with a small area to store trailer/dolly as there was not enough room in the site. Campground office is a couple of miles before the Campground (may have been wifi there, never tried). Enjoyed the Fort and moved on. rocmoc n AZ

RE: From El Paso to PV

Last time we went thu was from Creel to the Pemex I noted earlier. Just looked over at the KOA RV Park behind the Pemex as we went pass and was still there, 8 years ago!!! We generally stay at Pemex until we get to our end destination. rocmoc n AZ

RE: AZ allergies

When we move to So. AZ 15 years ago the Allergy Scale went to 10. 3 years later we max'd out the scale and they added two digits to the scale making the top 12. Now we are bumping the 12. SO I started allergy shots this year as meds were not holding last year. Results after 8 months of shots are this is the best season I have had in 5 year in AZ. The shots are working for ME. rocmoc n AZ/Baja

RE: From El Paso to PV

Try the Santa Teresa crossing in New Mexico, a few miles west of El Paso. Bypass the questionable El Paso area. X2, First night after crossing stay at Pemex at N29deg24' 02.06", W106deg25' 01.45", park under light and go inside to ask permission and offer at least 5 pesos. Next day easy to RV Park in Chihuahua. Then next night you will make it to Durango. More campsites on "Travel with Kevin and Ruth", http://www.travelwithkevinandruth.com/. The travel down to Mazatlan. rocmoc n AZ/Baja

RE: Winter area

All depends on what you consider cold. Since we are full time Arizona we think the winter is cold and head South into Mexico. You may think So. Ut. is warm enough. rocmocn AZ/Baja

RE: Huatabampito

We we drove the south road in Dec '15, the local Police escorted us waving back an forth across the road trying to find a path thu the potholes. They were very kind to try and help but there just was NOT a clear path. Said at the time we sadly would not be returning until the road was repair. SO we were very excited to hear about the repave! rocmoc n AZ

RE: Nogales, MX safe to visit

Live just north of Nogales. No problems. Park in a lot near the border crossing and walk across. Most people never leave walking distance from the crossing. BUT, you can take a taxi down near the Mexico Walmart to some Excellent restaurants that are much better than La Roca. Cheaper, better food and where the locals eat! Be prepared to wait when crossing back into USA. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Mildew prevention question

We do have a similar problem during monsoon season in AZ. Yes we have a big time wet season from the beginning on July to the middle of Sept. What people do that leave their RVs here in the summer is leave the AC on at 80 degrees. If you don't have power you have to use a moisture removal product that can be found at any local RV supply store. Don't just close the door and walk away, you may be very sorry when you return. Also try to arrange for a local to check for leaks in the inside thu the rainy season. We do this all for our friends from Id who leave their Airstream thu the summer. rocmoc n AZ
