RE: Traveling to San Carlos

IF you are crossing at Nogales, paper work is at KM 21. I don't believe you need permits for the vehicles if you only go as far as San Carlos. Hopefully someone who doesn't go further south will confirm that.

RE: fuel

We don't worry about MPG. We used to have a boat! Expect 8 to 9 unless you're a lead foot.

RE: new to us motorhome

We are pretty happy with our 2002 32' Itasca Horizon. 5.9 Cummins, 6 speed allison, 2 driver's side slides. Here's a link to our blog, goes back to 2009. Mostly from BC to Mexico and back, did it once the hard way, via Alaska.

RE: looking for a vehicle to tow.

We towed a 1991 Chevy Tracker for 10 years, a 2001 for 10 years then DW fell in love with a 2011 Jeep Wrangler 4 door soft top. All towed well, though I think the Jeep would have been a bit much for the gasser. It was fine with the small DP. Over all I preferred the Trackers, though DW loved her Jeep. (She did like the Trackers though). Both Trackers hit the 180,000 Km mark (112,000 miles) or more, still running fine. Tracker would be my preference.

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

Checked, emptied the water and topped up the crystals in the three DRI-Z-AIR units in the rig; 1 in the bedroom, 1 on the galley counter and 1 on the dash. All were 1/2 full of water after 4 weeks. (Rainy and humid up here.) In the rig there is also a 100 watt light bulb on the dash (also lets us know that the power is still on!) a 900 watt heater set at it's lowest--about 10F I think. The two roof vents are half open. Good news? NO SIGN OF MILDEW OR MOULD! The DRI-Z-AIR in the car (under a tarp-garage) was the same.

RE: Norcold 1210 quit cooling

Is it inn a slide? If so, the fans may have quit. Ours was just corroded contacts to the fan. (Thanks Doug Rainer)

RE: Strange radio interference situation

Someone still listens to AM radio?I judge what I listen to by the content of its programming, not the wavelength of its signal. AM is Amplitude Modulation. It has nothing to do with frequency (Aircraft still use AM in the VHF band) Since RFI is essentially Amplitude Modulated it's hell on AM Radios. IT may be conducted (power cord--un plug, don't just kill the breaker) or radiated. If radiated, you are likely just out of luck. Or turn the lights off. I had to take take the LEDs out and go back to incandescent in my ham radio room.

RE: Leaving seat while driving

We stay buckled. Though once DW stayed in bed while I began the day at 5:30 AM.She has also got up a few times when a cupboard opened! Or the dog got off his bed. Safest is to stay put. In the boat we would cook, make coffee, get drinks, visit the head etc but that was at about 8 knots, not at 80 to 100 Km/H

RE: Necessity of a spare?

We have put over 100,00 miles on our Itasca Horizon DP with 22.5" Michelins, from Alaska to Mexico. Never needed a spare. (Now on our second set) I wouldn't be able to change it anyway. even though my first full time job (50 years ago) was in a tire shop tha t specialised in Transport trucks.

RE: flooring options for gas motorhome

We used "Drop and Done", a vinyl product. In stick houses that's just what they do. In motohomes, the installer recommended that we glue it down. It's been in for several years and still looks good. There are some scratches from the slide but it's not noticeable unless you look for it. We used one of the blue/grey shades, like a barn board. That particular colour no longer available. http://www.laurentiansales.ca/drop_and_done_selection.html

Minimum Wage

Hope I'm not breaking any rules here; This is a quote from a poster on Zihuatanejo.net "As of today, the minimum wage rate for Zone A is MXP $70.10, for B MXP $66.45. At the current exchange rate, that's USD $4.76 and $4.51....PER DAY! I think it is important for tourists coming from another country to know this and to keep it in mind especially when tipping, "haggling", etc. We have always done our best to inform other gringos we bump into."

RE: Nine year old RV Fire Extinguisher Still Serviceable

Check out Mac The Fire Guy. Often found at rallys. We have the Hawk SS400 CAF Foam. If filled with DISTILLED water it can be used on electrical fire. The foam concentrate is non conductive.

RE: Staying warm

Perhaps Pianotuna will jump in here. He winters in Saskatchewan.

RE: Staying warm

Check out a Triple E rig, built in Canada for Canadian climates. We had a '97 Triple E Commander, their top line Class A. Said the furnace was sized to maintain 20 C inside when - 20 outside. That's 68F and -29F! A met a couple several years ago who had wintered in the Yukon in an older class C. They had extra (external) propane tank and went through a LOT of propane. When possible they ran electric heaters too. The furnace ducting also runs in to the insulated tank areas too.

RE: Charging Chassis Battery

We use the Xantrex Echo Charger which charges the chassis battery from the house battery when needed and the house battery is at 13.0V or higher. It will charge at up to 15A. Even when we're dry camped and on solar it keeps the chassis battery up nicely. One advantage of the trik-l-start charger though is that it is a sealed unit and impervious from battery charging fumes and moisture.

RE: Any one under 55 own a class A?

We did but I'm 68 now on my third.

RE: furnace runs but little air from vents

I thought ours wasn't working as well as it could so I had a heating tech come out. He checked the air flow and said it was well within spec, even for a stick house. It had just been bloody cold outside!
