RE: What toad is small enough to carry on the back of a Class A?

We're here at the Quartzsite rv show in Az. I've seen two smart cars being carried by lifts on the back of 40 ft Class A rv's with tag axles. There is a vendor here selling one. I'll try and take a picture of one when I see it again. The smart car is being carried sideways much like you see motorcycles being carried. The OP does not have a 40' motorhome with a tag axle. Even if he did, just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Can you image the engineer when they find out that somebody cantilevers an extra ton off the back of their DOT approved RV design. :S No......go on . Say it isn't so.

RE: Rocky Point

Hey bill, Yeah the insurance varies . We use a company in town. Yes thatvroute is still good. If you miss it. Don't sweat it jus continue on until you hit the road construction on the main drag . They are doing new paving. Make right turn and continue on to the Pemex station at the traffic circle. Follow the road along the high rise hotels until it turns to dirt and look for the reef on the left Rates are 35 a night for beach front and 23 for non beach. Cheaper by the month

Rocky Point

Got here at the Reef RV park two days ago. Park has about 30 or so rv's in it. Weather is great. In case anyone's interested, the dry camping area at Sandy Beach, next to the Reef.................is closed. We saw alot of rv's over at the other dry camping area next to the Playa Bonita. The Wrecked at the Reef restaurant is supposed to be open this weekend. The park is open. The construction of the Marina continues. Looks like they're taking a break today and having some type of ceremony on th abit, but we don't think its that bad. If anyone's interested, I'll post some photos.

RE: KVH Sat dish won't connect w/Direct TV Reciever

Snomas, They haven't supported those for some time now. You've been using yours on borrowed time. I had the KVH L3. Did the same as yours. Worked great for about 6 years then quit locking on the signal. KVH advised that it probably had what they called a "brown out" and need software upgrade> it would have been about $150.00 with no guarantee that it would solve the problem and they added that they no longer made my unit. That was about 3 yearrs ago. I got the Wineguard carryout. works great.

RE: Possible to run heat at night without killing your batteries

More batteries. We have 4 house batteries, been watching movies the last couple of hours on inverter power and will still enough to run the furnace cause it gets cold out here at Quartzsite Az at night. More batteries.

RE: Fuel Costs

Thanks for the rest of you attempting to answer a question for me. I figured those who were actually there might be able to give me a better idea what the prices might be from your personal knowledge. \ Appreciate it.

RE: Fuel Costs

This is not available on the web? If you don't know or care, Why do you bother to answer with a question? To quote one of your own posts "Wow.. that's really helpful."

Fuel Costs

I'm trying to save a buck. Just like I choose fuel places in the US based on price. Here in Las Vegas, I can get diesel for about $3.69 a gallon. We sometimes fill up North of the border. Last year it was south of the border. We're heading south next week. Anybody got the current diesel prices south of the border I can use? Thanks
Galvanizd 01/18/14 09:23am RVing in Mexico and South America

I too have that insurance that I purchased through FMCA affiliate . I've never had to use it but through mine approval first has to be obtained from the parent company. I would prolly touch base with the insuring agency and proceed with their advice and approval.

RE: Bringing alcohol in RV to Mex.

Crossed at Lukeville in our Rv for the last 10 years. Coming back into the US no one ever asked, let alone looked for alcohol. That was our experience and we were stopped and spoken to every time .

RE: Bringing alcohol in RV to Mex.

I don't know where Mickey of that info and it may be correct, but I am concerned when they don't know how to spell tobacco. Just an observation. Wow, harsh, doin da best we can heah. Jist tryin to giv our opinoin Might want to check sentence structure/coherency on your own first sentence. Gottahaveit, A lot of what we' ll be able to tell you is personal experience. We've always taken quantities of wine with us heading south. Never a problem going either direction, but , we were asked once going south about alcohol but no enforcement. Our crossings have been at the Lukeville crossing Can they enforce more, yeah so might want to do a little research .

RE: Puerto Peñasco Helicopter Gunship Action

So now the plot thickens!!!..........well not really. Everybody knew those guns from fast and furious were gonna show up somewhere in mexico. It seems that somewhere turns out to be Rocky Point. One of the weapons found at the shootout scene was from that caper.

RE: Puerto Peñasco Helicopter Gunship Action

Hey wow. This is great . Let's keep this post going I travel to rocky point but missed this shoot out . I was there for the other one awhile back in town so maybe that gives me a bit of street cred My Canadian friends were one of the 4 rv's at the Reef when they got a low flyover by the Mexican Air Force . Dunno what the folks at the playa Bonita saw or heard. This time of year, there aren't capacity crowds at either park. Dunno about the drugs or who did what to whom but our friends said it was loud and quite a show from their location at the Reef. I'm guessing it put a damper on beach walks for a bit. Prbly gonna be some vacancies when we head to the Reef next month.

RE: Quratzite, AZ

Kid kasha, As you can see we motorhomers always agree on stuff related to rv's . Some like quartzsite , some don't . Some have never been , some wont go again. If you want to really get some responses, ask if you should buy a campground membership at the quartzsite Rv show or better yet what the crowd thinks about buying an Alfa Cya at the show or the best one , ask about traveling to Mexico in your Rv. They have travel caravans at the show that will sell caravan passage to Mexico . Then check your fire extinguishers and make sure you have your asbestos suit on. Try the quartzsite Rv show, you might like it............ Or don't .

RE: Quratzite, AZ

Kid kasha , here's what we do. I-10 from LA past Blythe into Quartzsite. Rose Rv park, easy to find on net . January it was 7 bucks a night to dry camp , more for hookup. We usually spend 3 nights cause that's what it takes for us to see the show and relax . Bring firewood for small campfire at night. Class A Rv, self contained , we go to the camp full of water. Dump station available at camp for a fee. Honey wagon and fresh water delivered / picked up for a fee. You can last 3 days easily with full tank of water and your generator. Rose Rv is fairly easy walking distance to the event and it will spare you having to find a parking spot cause you won't believe the traffic and how tough it is sometimes to find a parking spot. That's for short stays . We've done that for the last 10 years we've been going to the show. Longer stays Blm property but ya gotta drive to show. Plenty of eaten at the event. Stuff you never imagined you needed. Some good deals. Some not so good deals. Parts for the Rv . Stuff for the wives. Stuff for the guys. Bring good walking shoes/boots , hat and cash. Some take credit cards. 10 years later we still enjoy it for 3 days. Is it dying out? Was it better 10 years ago or 20? Dunno, but you decide. Go, have, a good time. Gas/diesel fuel available

RE: Will The Reef in PP Be Gone?

Maybe , But in Puerto Penasco the, Playa elegante, La Jolla de Cortez, Bonita and 2 others who's names escape me, shut down when the high rise, carbo like hotels started up and have not been replaced nor have any new, full hookup beach parks, opened. Playa del Oro, Playa Bonita and the Reef are the only full hookup beach rv parks and the del Oro has cut back a lot on their operation. Good luck getting a long term beach front at the playa bonita and then its pretty tight parking. I can't speak for the summer months but the Reef , during the months of Jan, Feb, and March has never been close to full capacity with Rv 'rs. We're pretty spoiled, we' dry camp for a bit but prefer full hook ups so the 2 or 3,dry camping areas on the beach are great but not for us long term. My point. I don't believe we Rv people have that big of an impact on Rocky Point. Not sure we count that much when the talk of tourism comes up but I think they'd rather fill the high rises with people than the Rv parks. Sure we contribute to the local economy but not like we did 10 years ago pre highrises, pre economic slump in Arizona . And before the Mexico purists jump in . I've lived full time in 2 different countries and visited over 23, I like Rocky Point. It's enough of Mexico for me. I've don't want to go a whole lot farther south. So to the original question, no I don't believe the Reef will survive. I think they're gonna shut it down Open a new beach front, maybe but I just don't think rvers have that big of an impact economically so I don't believe we are the answer to saving Rocky Point

RE: BofA 3% ATM fee

Disregard, found my answer, Bank of America International Transaction Fee (Foreign Currency Conversion Fee) For transactions in currencies other than U.S. Dollars when using a Bank of America ATM card or debit/check card, Bank of America may charge its account holders an International Transaction Fee for purchases or ATM cash withdrawals regardless of whether the transaction occurs within the Global ATM Alliance or outside the Global ATM Alliance.For each ATM cash withdrawal, this International Transaction Fee is 3% of the U.S. Dollar Amount (as of November 8, 2013), and for each purchase, this International Transaction Fee is 3% of the U.S. Dollar Amount. This fee appears as a separate item on the Bank of America account holder's banking statement for each international transaction.

RE: BofA 3% ATM fee

As most of you know by now, Bank of America is, as of November 8, charging a 3% fee for ATM use at Santander. Here is a link to an on line petition protesting it. http://www.change.org/petitions/bank-of-america-eliminate-the-3-international-transaction-fee-imposed-on-11-7-2013-on-atm-transactions-within-the-global-alliance-banks?share_id=tsKqTLdtCx&utm_campaign=autopublish&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition I'm a little confused. I realize what actually happens at an ATM machine and what a website says might be entirely different . So are you referring to credit cards or debit cards or both that Boa is charging a fee. Boa has always charged a FTF when we used a credit card in another country but not a debit card fee when using a Boa affiliate. Just looking for clarification . Here's what the Boa website has posted. You can avoid the Non-Bank of America ATM usage fee and ATM operator access fee by using one of our international partner ATMs in the corresponding countries listed below: Barclays (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Jersey, Guernsey and the Channel Islands) BNP Paribas (France) BNL D’Italia (Italy) UkrSibbank (Ukraine) Deutsche Bank (Germany) Scotia Bank (Canada, Peru, Chile and the Caribbean including: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Maarten, Puerto Rico, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks & Caicos Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands) Westpac Bank (Australia and New Zealand) China Construction Bank (Mainland China) Santander (Mexico)
