RE: Sewer Pipe Question

Is it the same fatty substance that accumulates on those see through drain pipes and that lines the tank walls if not thoroughly flushed?

RE: Flipping Axle

If the trailer has shocks the mount will have to be re-positioned and a possibility the shock could be too short. The shock mount piece should be available at any trailer supply house.

RE: Mexico Medical

Thinking about going to Reynosa Mexico for cataract surgery, any comments? That's a procedure I would want to do as close to home as possible.

RE: Air brakes on Towed

Why not simply get the ReadyBrake/ReadyBrute?? Nothing to add, nothing to subtract. Just hook it and go. Easiest system there is and nothing hooked to the toad..I've had mine for 10 years.....Dennis Ready/Brute I am not a fan of surge brakes with an engine brake. Going down a hill the Ready Brake will be applying toad brakes constantly. They will be warm/hot on a long descent when I have not touched the service brakes. I stopped once after a downhill and checked, they were warm but not overly hot. I'm pretty sure you just agreed with me....:C

RE: Lukeville crossing

children sprayed something from a plastic bottle on our front bumper. When we got to the USA the K-9 barked at our front bumper. The assumption was the children were responsible. If so the US Border Patrol would have been inundated that day, you would not be the only ones. Perhaps that was the case though, who knows. I've crossed many borders and have wondered sometimes about the opportunity that could be taken by a smuggler using you and following you to retrieve whatever it was. Taking a camper across a border can be intimidating, it's hard to keep track of what may be prohibited items in the house you live in for many months. Each side of the border has a different list of prohibited items. If you normally travel with weapons, ammo etc. you may forget they are there. One empty shell casing can be a major problem. We were caught with a piece of uncooked Mexican sausage in the refrigerator. I have no idea how we missed that but it cost me several hundred bucks and the loss of my Global Entry and TSA Precheck.

RE: Seafood from mexico

"...............You are allowed to bring 50# of Mexican beef to the USA." Where did you get this info? I called the Agriculture agent in Lukeville at the border office. I also was secondary inspected by him later and asked if that was per person or per vehicle. He said per vehicle.

RE: Seafood from mexico

If you buy shrimp on the Malacon, be sure to take a weight with you. Their scales are a tad off and not in your favor. They usually have another scale under the counter. I carry a 1 Kg and a 0.5 Kg weight to check the scales. In the Malecon as soon as they see the weights they point me to the good scale! We prefer 3 Brothers by the harbor where the fishing boats put in. Their scale has been dead on every time I have checked it! Sonora beef is also excellent and actually has flavor! You are allowed to bring 50# of Mexican beef to the USA.

RE: Passports

The Mexican Military has been asking to see a passport when entering and departing at Lukeville whenever they inspect. It's hit & miss although I don't think they have missed us in a couple of years. Mexican Customs/Immigration isn't stopping us near as much as they used to but the Military checkpoint is just another 100 feet down the road.

RE: Ripped off at Chevron

Must be good to pull this on an experienced MX traveler :( Those guys are amazing! I have been cheated so many times at Mexican stations I only buy fuel in Mexico when I have to. They know every trick in the book.

RE: Transfer Switch

No damage inside the TS. Panel breakers are good. Power to one side of the points. It won't engage the relay to move the arm to power up the AC side? Make & Part number would help. Is it just a transfer switch or is it also a surge guard?

RE: Oops, Dodge just threw you under the bus...

For the first time the latest commercials from Dodge are now calling their Half ton Dodge Ram's "Light Duty Pickups". The commercials don't verbally say so but the print on the screen is quite clear. I know it is just marketing but then again many of the Ram so called half tons come with well under 1,000# of payload so maybe they have a point. Pardon my chuckling but after having a Doge Ram 4X4 crew cab guy tell me that my Honda Ridgeline was not a "Real truck" it is hard to keep a straight face. His "Real Truck" comes in at 977# of payload so maybe the new Dodge commercials are right. For the record... Ridgeline, Tacoma, Colorado, Ranger, Yukon and even the Frontier typically have more payload than the venerable Dodge Ram. :B Since I can flat tow a Ram, Chevy and Ford half ton I'm missing the point. I haven't seen any Honda, Nissan or Toyota trucks behind a camper.

RE: Locast adds Atlanta and Phoenix

Is the only point of this service to have local TV on a computer or when travelling? All I have to do is turn the TV on to get local TV, although rural folks don't always get a good signal.

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

Being Comanche, I'm just gonna start a campfire in the middle of the front area. My people, the original full timers, have been doing that for generations. GM That's funny! Seems like we all started out as full timers way back when.

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

The adapter might overheat. The 30 amp receptacle might overheat. It is really NOT good to exceed a 25 amp draw on a 30 amp service because you don't know how good the feed really is. Excellent advice. Grab the 30 amp adapter after using high amperage for a while. It will almost certainly be hot to the touch. That is going to start melting the adapter as well as overheating the receptacle. Campground electrical get a lot of use and abuse, the connections are usually well worn and not making the best connection. Poor connections = heat. Their circuit breakers are also well worn. I carry spare 30 and 50 amp plugs for that very reason. We were parked on a farm plugged into a grain elevator this summer. DW called and said we lost power. Turns out she tripped the 90 amp breaker on the grain elevator! Lets see; 3 A/C units, AquaHot 4000 watts, microwave & electric skillet etc. all at the same time! We had an impromptu class on electrical consumption....:S

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

I have read some RVs use the on board generator to power their home when needed. It's fairly easy. If you decide to power the house circuitry instead of extension cords to the refrigerator, etc. you have to turn the main breaker off to keep from back feeding the utility.

RE: Headlights blinking randomly

Daylight Running Light Module (Hamsar?) will also do that when it fails.

RE: Printer

Example, we used to print boarding cards for air flights...then they started letting you download them to your phone (plus you can always get a printed copy at the airport). Solved the problem without maintaining a printer. I used an airline app with a boarding pass recently. It showed on the app so I did not download it (that won't happen again). When I showed up at security after waiting in line the app wouldn't show the boarding pass and I had to go to ticketing, the kiosk wouldn't print it either. I had to get in line and get an agent to print one and start over. Lesson learned, paper if available always works.
