RE: Latest travel warning

https://mx.usembassy.gov/mexico080620-travel-advisory-level-4-do-not-travel/ I hope the link works. The USA has issued the strongest travel warning I have ever seen . Almost like a biblical warning of 7 plagues. Very extreme and bound to harm Mexico tourism for a long time.I was shocked. There are a lot of things to consider when travelling South of the border. Residents of Puerto Penasco, Sonora have mentioned avoiding the road to Caborca which surprised me as I wouldn't have given it a thought otherwise. I suppose the economic pinch is affecting everyone. A group of us plan to visit Puerto Penasco in October but beach restrictions and travel restrictions may make it more trouble than it is worth. Sure wouldn't want to catch a cold there and deal with that.

RE: Dreaded EE code

Inline Coupler I think this is what Doug is referring to. This is 4 wire but they make a 6 wire that you may need.

RE: Leaving ceiling fan on while traveling

No reason to close the lid if you want the air flow. They are made to operate when moving.

RE: Tow Bar Age

I was given a Blue Ox 10,000lb tow bar by my neighbor. They full-timed for 7 years, then it sat in their garage for 6 or 7 years. Everything appears to be in working order. No binding, and the arms extend smoothly and lock. I emailed Blue Ox to see if they would refurb it for me (just to be on the safe side), and they said no, they recommend replacement after 8-10 years so I need to buy a new one. So who out there is using an older tow bar, and have you had any issues? Should I just buy a new one? Thoughts? Al Blue Ox has made a Corporate decision which may be to increase sales or perhaps the legal department wanted it. Blue Ox used to rebuild tow bars for about $20 which they raised to $125 recently. I have an older Blue Ox Aventa 10,000 lb. tow bar which was rebuilt by Blue Ox a few years ago and then put in storage. Although it is like new it is over 8 years old so Blue Ox will condemn it. That is a poor way to judge performance, IMHO.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

I think the thread has had a lot of great information but disrupted with some posts and perhaps egos. Overall some of us have gained knowledge which is what we are here for.

RE: 7.5 Onan Diesel Generator

Have you pulled the coolant fill hose with the radiator cap out and extended it above the top of the generator and topped off the coolant?

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

I've yet to come across one of these rigs that have 240v appliances. I'm sure they exist but kind of like hen's teeth Mine has a 240 VAC Dryer but no hens teeth. The AquaHot uses both sides with two 2000 watt elements but they are 120 VAC elements so I guess that doesn't count.

RE: Military & Customs

Is this any different from what I have seen the last year or two? Customs has been at the physical border and the Military inspection is about 100-200 feet inside the border. They both get to Meet & Greet coming and going.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

On an RV that has zero 240 volt appliances is there a reason to have the tied 50 amp breaker instead of two separate 50 amp breakers?

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

I can easily exceed 50 amps 240 VAC with 3 A/C units, AquaHot with a 2000 watt element on each leg, microwave, fry pan, hair dryer, 240 VAC dryer, instahot, etc. I have to watch it closely when DW gets busy.

RE: Why A Macerator Toilet Versus Regular

Fairly easy to solve that, guys go #1 outside. I would think it would be better to just use the other toilet when water is limited. After all, man has known for couple thousand years it is better to keep waste together, and away from people. Reading my post thoroughly will show I have two macerating toilets and no "other" toilet. Near as I can tell those "couple thousand years" were generally in the great outdoors unless urban.

RE: Why A Macerator Toilet Versus Regular

As navigator2346 says, location of the tank dictates macerator. Downside for dry camping is water usage, push the button and it's going to use a specific amount of water. Fairly easy to solve that, guys go #1 outside. In nearly 40 years of camping I've repaired many regular flush toilets. I'm in my 5th year of having two macerating toilets and had one problem, an intermittent controller. I think they are reliable and see very few problems posted on the forums.

RE: Electric Bikes???

Beleive it or not they make conversion kits. Basically and electric powered FRONT wheel. the rear wheel is not affected so you can pedal assist. I'm leaning that way as there are some excellent used light weight bikes that can be converted. The e-bikes I've seen and rented are heavy. I'm not worried about the e-bike police chasing me and putting me in e-bike jail for having a throttle. :B

RE: Lay flat hose for macerator

I use a 30ft. one in. flat,works fine for me. What macerator are you using? I need at least 100 to 200 feet of run.

RE: Lay flat hose for macerator

The only issue I can think of is because there is no built up pressure in the hose because one end is open and the pump doesn't create much force, the macerator might have to work harder to get the material through the hose. The Flojet has a built in shut off if it gets too hot so you won't hurt it if that ends up being the case. I was going to get some 1.5" lay flat but the hose store discouraged me for that reason.

RE: Rocky Point Re-Opening Goofy Plan

They authorized use of the resort pools and beach but you cannot dip your toes in the sea at that authorized resort beach, walk to the waterline but no farther. They authorized rental houses but you cannot use the house private pool. Goofy! Russ, I am aware of your restrictions and am glad you are happy with them.

Rocky Point Re-Opening Goofy Plan

Apparently the virus is contracted from Ocean water and specific fresh water; "authorization was approved for reopening of pools at resorts and hotels, which does not encompass pools for commercial use or private residences. Similarly, authorization was given for use of the Federal Concession part of the beach, which will be monitored by security guards at each resort, this does not authorize swimming at the city’s different beaches."

RE: TSD Fuel Program Update

All of the Love’s discounts have been reduced to $.16. Basically useless because you can shop around and find for less. The only “real” discount left is TA-Petro. I saw that yesterday, now starting to plan for TA or Petro stops.

RE: Chinese Versus TAIWAN Hand Tools

I have used both and in my opinion the comparison is night and day. Some stores like Auto Zone carry TAIWAN mechanic's tools And then there is MEANWELL power supplies versus mainland garbage Yes I am angry My hand is bandaged A mainland ratchet stripped it's brand new teeth and my hand gashed across a 4" hole saw. The ratchet was brand new. I am going to STRIP every Mainland China hand tool and into the garbage it goes. Don't get smartass about branded tools. I am talking about Made In China unbranded hand tools I have a Snap On ratchet that broke a tooth but my mother told me to always keep the hole saw at a distance so I wouldn't get hurt. She was right, I just busted my knuckles.:E
