RE: Removing Sharp Carousel Micro/convection

Thanks all for suggestions. It looks like it won't be too difficult to remove except for the weight. Heaven knows what I am going to put it on to look at. There is not Picnic table at the site; they are rare if not non existant in Mexico. The folding tables we carry with art light duty ones, in fact one collapsed a few days ago under the weight of a 20 litre water jug! I'm not going to take it out until I find a place that may be able to service it. We are an hour and a half from Lazero Cardedas, 4 hours from Uruapan, 4-5 hours from Acapulco and the same from Morelia. Might have to wait until we get to Puerto Vallarta or Mazatlan in a couple of months.

RE: Getting T.I.P. deposit when returning

We'll try Caborca (it appears from online discussions to be the the plaza at Pitiquito), but there is evidently an office close to the border at the link in the first post. There is conflicting discussion about whether the one near the border will accept TIP stickers. There wouldn't be a problem turning in our sticker then staying in Puerto Penasco for a few days, would there? We tried to turn in our FMM at km 21 but they closed at 4:00 PM That had to be done in Sonoyta. TIP at the southern point.

RE: Auto insurance recommendations

Lewis and Lewis. First hand experience here, paid out acceptably when our Jeep was hijacked at gunpoint and not recovered. Jim Lewis took an interest and helped facilitate our claim.

RE: December's Pemex fuel prices

We did January 2003 through March 2008 averaging 3 months per year in a 1997 Ford 460 30' Class A with no fuel problems, nothing but Magna.

RE: road from Palenque to San Cristobal de Las Casas

Us too, then the road was OK but lots of twists and turns and almost NOWHERE to pull off. I thought my bladder was going to burst! Unless you have a small rig I don't think there is anywhere to stay in San Cristobal de las Casas. Not far away, ( An hour or so)in Ocozocoautla there is an orphanage that has room for a couple of rigs, and welcome them at no charge.

RE: In Defense of Fahrenheit

Last time I looked the UK still uses miles. Does that count? But they sell fuel by the litre. :h

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Can you tell me the details about paint work in Mexico. I got burned by a US painter and need a full repaint on my 1988 Prevost. Any info would be appreciated. I can't go back over the last 550 pages to find one of your previous posts! There are many skilled boat/auto/motorhome painters and bodyworkers in Mexico, the hard part is finding them! Most are very good, some are superb. Doing what you are doing is the safest way to find one; Ask someone who has had experience. We are in Zihuatanejo, in southern Mexico and have been lucky. Last year I arrived to see a neigbours trailer having a crushed fiberglass panel being repaired. I was impressed so I asked him for a quote for some touch-ups on my rig. I was impressed with both the work and the price. Margarito did excellent work, matching the paint IN MID PANEL so you couldn't see the start/stop line We area long way south though. I know of an Excellent shop in Mazatlan, one Juan Salazar Jr who is not only a highly skilled body and paint man but a real artist. Also sent you PM

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

They finished the power buffing and waxing, removing the very bad oil stains on the rear cap from a diesel leak. The gel coat on the rear cap looks like new! Also buffed out old stained gelcoat on the sides. Painter says this will be the last time it can be buffed. Next time, new paint--the gel coat is getting thin! He's going to give me a quote for next year And they finished the cracked and scraped fibre glass on the lower part of the rear cap and repainted. 6500 Pesos. Under $450.00 Canadian. Looks not bad for a 2002 with over 100,000 miles. Photos in a day or two.

RE: 7" (or larger) GPS Units

Very happy with the Garmin RV760LMT 7" Use it in my F350. C.B. Another vote for the Garmin RV760 We use it all the way down to southern Mexico, though RV Parks are not supported down here. Note that it can be programmed with your rig's dimensions and weight and will sometimes tell you that you can't take a certain highway because of height or weight restrictions.

RE: Using toad to pull MH backwards

Wish we had had the nerve to try that when this happened 4 years ago in Queretaro, Mexico. Took three hours with a couple of Mexican lads helping (actually doing all the work!) http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TxxVU6GLQzk/UKradRqDfII/AAAAAAAAF7w/Sm7T6Orfk74/s320/034.JPG

RE: Thor Hurricane 34J vs Itasca 35B

We have a 32' 2002 Itasca Horizon with 110,752 miles on it. It had 27,258 miles on the clock when we bought it in April 2008. All the cabinets are in very good shape though the Corian counter tops in the galley and bath have cracked. Started a couple of years ago. We have replaced the heat pump, shower floor, one burner on the stove, the toilet and this year the fridge. The microconvetion oven is now starting to act up. We use it daily when in the rig. (We travel about 6 months a year) Would we buy another Itasca? Absolutely.

RE: Fridge door gasket/insulation

I made a tool to keep my door open all the time while not in use,but after about 15 years the seal would not pass the dollar bill test. I removed the black retainer latch and removed about .040 off the back of the latch, this allowed the seal to compress more and it passed the dollar bill test. that was 5 years ago and the Norcold still cools well. If that didn't work I was going to try to inject the seal with silicone without the curing agent added to keep it pliable. I did not see how that seal can be removed and don't know if Norcold even sells a replacement seal. They do. It comes complete with a new door!

RE: Removing Sharp Carousel Micro/convection

A picture of the MW in the cabinet would be helpful Is it an over the cook top hanging under a cabinet Or is it totally enclosed in a cabinet Bit of both! Here are the photos.

RE: Help from Microwave tech please.

Yes, I knew that but for some reason was not co-relating the 1500 Watt microwave with the watts or milliwatts of a colour TV. :E Thanks for pointing that out. I think a long plastic rod will be handy! Wish I had my nylon alignment tools with me!
