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

RE: Tres Amigos RV Park

We just arrived yesterday by air and are staying at the hotel next to the rv park. All the road is paved except for one 1/2 mile stretch. Lots of things going up on the island. New construction. The place looks great and there are still some sites available in both RV1 and RV2. .4 miles not paved on both ends, so .8 mile not paved I beg your pardon. Last weekend I drove from Tres Amigos to the airport. "All" of the road is paved except for the 1/4 mile which is in front of the golf course coming from the airport towards the rv park. Pretty sure the hotel you stayed in is on dirt and section of road from there to the main road is not paved and is right at.4 miles. Correct but the dusty sections were/are on the main road to the turnoff to the park in the residential area. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Driving on the lateral with a MH (in PV)- What is the rule?

In some / most Cities you can not take a dual wheel vehicle downtown. On the City main arteries AROUND the city you can only drive in the Right Lane AND each lane can have a different speed limit which is Painted on the road surface of the lane. rocmoc n AZ

RE: If in Tucson...Real People and NO Pickleball-A Good Place

They have cleaned up the area some but Anything on Glenn is not an area I would stay in. Glenn is a great by-pass for Grant but not much else, IMHO! rocmoc n AZ

RE: Colima RV park

Not by the volcano but short drive from the Beach RV Parks. In fact it is an easy longer drive in / with an RV from Guadalajara to where you can see the volcano. rocmoc n AZ/MX

RE: Thoughts on oil change intervals (time, not mileage)

Ah, it's posts like this that remind me of why I don't purchase used vehicles. My thoughts exactly! -Michael LOL, no one wants mine when I sell as always have around the 300,000 mile changing 20,000 miles plus. All my vehicles use 11 or more qts(MH 24 qts) so think of all the oil and $ wasted if changed per the early oil change myth. One exception and that is our Ford Hybrid which is changed @ 10,000 but has lifetime dealer supplied service. rocmoc n AZ

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

Alamo Lake is a great place. You really feel a sense of being out in the middle of nowhere there. We especially enjoyed the drive there. I wonder how the fishing is? Were about 6 people fishing but did not see their catch. About 10 off-roaders / atvers. Talked to one guy preparing to go out with a group and said the off-roading had been great. We will be returning with our SXS. Scoped our how / where the trails start. For those who are interested, they start in the first / easterly campground. Two points where you leave the campground to the mass of trails. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Big change for Baja

Some web sites beg to differ - for trips exceeding 7 days http://www.discoverbaja.com/go/fmm-tourist-permits/ Mexican tourist permits, or FMMs (Forma Migratoria Multiple), are required for all non-Mexican citizens entering Baja. As of September 2015, the “free zone” for FMMs (trips within the 20 kilometer border zone for less than 72 hours) is no longer valid and everyone entering Mexico will need to obtain an FMM. A passport or passport card is required to obtain an FMM. FMM tourist permit visa baja mexicoIf you are driving to Baja and will be there for seven days or less, you may obtain this document for free at the Immigration office at the border. For visits of eight days or more, paid FMM tourist permits (from Discover Baja or the border) are required. Children ages two and older must have an FMM. or has that changed again? TVIP is not required though YES, FFM req'd for Baja Sur. Not for Baja Norte. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Thoughts on oil change intervals (time, not mileage)

Go on Trucker Forums for the real scoop. Ave guys changes oil way too often. I change every 20,000+ miles. More important to change filter which I do every 10,000 miles. Oil does not wear out! rocmoc n AZ

RE: Route from Bahia de kino to Puerto Penasco

If you do chose this route, Puerto Libertad is a great stop. Take the time and drive down to the coast just South of the Naval Base / Power Plant. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Big change for Baja

Baja is part of the Free Zone. No FFM req'd. Keep in mind how much $20 is when you total the expenses of the trip. Enjoy, $20 should not make a difference in the trip but does make a big difference to the people of Baja. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Passport needed for Mexico

RE: Arizona Winter 2017

OMG!! Where are they getting these numbers from or am I reading it wrong? It shows being in the teens or low 20's for months!!! I can assure you that isn't the case. http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/green-valley-az/85614/january-weather/2141944?monyr=1/1/2017 I will let the numbers do the talking. Was 23 degrees this morning and I am just a short 18 miles from you on the Santa Cruz River. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Arizona Winter 2017

Our heat so far has been much less than last year. According to this chart for Tucson December had a low of 44 and a high of 80 for the month. We've been able to play pickleball daily. I'll take it! https://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/KDMA/2016/12/1/MonthlyHistory.html?req_city=Tucson&req_state=AZ&reqdb.zip=85701&reqdb.magic=1&reqdb.wmo=99999 DM and TIA are not good data locations. Always hotter and dryer than the rest of the city from the concrete / blacktop weather effect. This is closer to home. http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/green-valley-az/85614/december-weather/2141944?monyr=12/1/2016 16 days below historical average including Xmas @ 52 degrees. Already 11 days below normal for Jan. http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/green-valley-az/85614/january-weather/2141944?monyr=1/1/2017

RE: Arizona Winter 2017

Wow! One week of cold in Arizona and folks are complaining about it being a cold 'winter'. One week folks...... and the future is warming up! Hang in there. December was a gorgeous, warm month. Christmas - no jacket. :) Live withing 20 miles of you and have lived here longer. Dec had 14 days that were below historical average. Jan & Feb are the COLD months with the most freezing and hard freeze night time lows. Jan has really been cold per my utility bills I am paying for the last month heat. Tucson rarely freezes but last night froze. Wonderful place to live and visit but this winter is COLD. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Interstate 10

I10 is a good road all the way except thu a few SouthEastern Town. The section Benson is always work in progress as that section is built on unstable river soil and is always moving and settling. The heavy truck traffic doesn't help either. No potholes, just up & down dips. I always slow down for that section. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Arizona Winter 2017

Hay I understand. This is our brick & motar location and this has been a cold rough winter thus far. We normally head out for Mexico mid-winter as it is too cold for this desert rat in the winter but rotator cuff surgery killed the trip this year. BUT next year back to the norm. Early Feb can be the coldest but by end of month AZ always starts to warm. All tho it was a late spring freeze here when I slipped on ice and tore up my shoulder. Hang in there, Yuma is the warmest. rocmoc n AZ
