RE: Trains

When travelling on secondary roads and encountering a railroad crossing I stop, roll windows down and listen for any horn, wait a bit to see if I did not miss a warning and then looking at both sides proceed, specially if there are more than one track, specially when there is a small town that we are traversing and a rail line goes trough town, some times signals will fail and the locals seem to ignore the danger, been honked at plenty of times and had idiots let me know that I am number one with the middle finger! navegator

RE: TIP problems

Some of the stories that are published on Face book, Twitter and YouTube and some of the blogs contain and have so much misinformation and false accounts that you need to take them with a grain of salt. I do not use Twitter or Face book, do use YouTube for some items of interest. On one occasion I found some videos on Mexico, first one was by an amateur fellow about an area of Yucatan, very well done, narrated and shot, none of this vertigo panning zoom in zoom out stuff, second one seemed to be semi professional and rather good, until the narrator stated that Acapulco is in the Caribbean sea and San Cristobal de las Casa is in Yucatan, as far as I know Acapulco has not moved from the Pacific coast of Mexico and the state of Chiapas has always had San Cristobal de las Casas in it. The other item missing in the original account is what type of "cargo" were this trucks carrying or pulling, did they have a full camper shell, a simple shell or what type of trailer were they towing, as far as I know Sonoyta is the only check point that happens to be inland all other "retenes aduanales" have been eliminated, it has been a very long time since we have been stopped for immigration or customs checks away from the border, we have been asked were we are going at some military check points but no documents or TIP checked. This might be someone trying to scare and misinform. navegator

RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

Japanese vehicles with a "J" in the VIN "Vehicle Identification Number" can not be permanently imported in to Mexico and they can only be brought in with a Temporary Import Permit "TIP" for a 180 days once in 12 months by the same person. navegator

RE: How do you store your power supply extension cord

I will sugest that the connecting ends be pluged so that while being stored they do not deteriorate and make bad a connection, this storage method is good just make shure that if it rains water does not sagnate in the bottom. I roll the extention and clamp a plastic hand cuff purchased at Home Despot. navegator

RE: New phone dialing requirements

Calling from Mexico to the US you still need the 00-1-(area code)-number otherwise just the 10 local numbers for calls within Mexico, and all 800 US numbers are charged as toll calls again use the 00-1-800-number, some of the toll charges can be outrageously expensive. navegator

RE: Trailer wiring

Has any one of you actually cheecked the plugs that connect the trailer to the motorhome, 80% of the time theese connectors fail due to the vibration of the cable, the screws that hold the wires are minuscule and most technicians do not solder the ends, they just jam the wires on and tighten the screw, this also has the added benefit of severing the wires and the end result is a loose wire. Also take into consideration that theese connectors are open where the cable enters and water does get in, corrotion will take over and you loose connectivity, the other culprit is actually done by the person(s) vigorously either yanking on the plug and cable or moving up and dow and sideways on the connector and spreading the female receptacles in a manner that connections are either intermittent or non existing. I start at the connector on the trailer and then on the tow vehicle, then the trailer and finally the tow vehicle, I solder the wire terminals and protect both connectors with liquid rubber to prevent any water or moisture from getting in, I have not had an electric failure between the RV and the toad in 17 years. navegator

RE: If you had a month...?

You might want to try for the Grand Canyon North rim, then to the valley of the God's that area, then East to the Arches with Mesa Verde then to Durango, Silverton, Teluride, Montrose and back down to Holbrook petrified forest Flagstaf and Sedona and Jerome, Prescott and then back home. navegator

RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

Some times even lending an item can be returned in a broken state, wife lent her slicer to the neighbor and she managed to close it backwards breaking a small plastic pivot, how she managed that is a complete mistery to both of us. navegator

RE: A/C died in NY at 95 degrees......what brand to buy?

Coleman A/C units do not work when temperatures reach more than 90*F, we had a Dometic for more than 15 years and worked great in the California desert with temperatures well over 90*F to 120*+F, it eventually was beyond repair so the RV tech sold us a Coleman, that lasted a little over 3 months and never worked well over 90*F, got a new Dometic and is working great in high heat and humidity in Texas. Get a Dometic, they are easy to clean and maintain. navegator

RE: Front steer tire blowout analysis 2

Keeping both hands on the steering wheel and paying attention to the road is higlly advisable! On the other hand loollygaging along, smoking, eating, simply talking and looking at the passenger or trying to see the GPS or phone, when the tire blows the startled reaction is to slam on the brakes, and it gets worst by having only one hand to control the steering wheel and the vehicle, that and having tires that are past due because they look good, or under inflated is also bad. navegator

RE: Anchor bolts or boats

Just strap a couple of pontoons to the RV and overboard motor and purchase a Damford anchor, that way you will be ready so that if California sinks you now have beach property and a vessel. navegator

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

The stuff of hollywood fiction, the movement on the fault lines is parallel, and if there is a crack it will only be maybe a foot and a half wide and maybe a cuple of feet deep, this nonensence of being swallowed by a crack is holywood fiction, not in California, on subduction plates yes it can happen but not on slipfaults. You guys are to traumatized by the quake, they are actually fun to feel, I much rather be in a quake than a hurricane 'been in one" or a tornado. navegator
