RE: Best route

As long as the VIN (vehicle identification number) located on the left, lower corner of the wind sield (steering wheel side) and/or sticker on left front door maches the one on the vehicle's paperwork AKA "tarjeta de circulacion" or bill of sale you should be OK crossing the border, US customs might take a closer look at the vehicle if the plates are not on it and register the VIN number, be prepared for a thorough vehicle search. As far as I know if you have a Mexican resident card you do not need the FMM, that is for turistas. navegator

RE: Be careful with engine block heaters

Why would an engine block heater in a vehicle, in a garage start a fire in a bush outside of the garage? That makes no sence at all! Unless the extention cord or the wall outlet caught fire and the garage wall whent up in flames and the burning wall burnt trough and ignited the bush outside which in turn helped to spread the fire..... get the idea? I sincerelly hoppe that both recuperate from the inguries. navegator

RE: Tourist Permits (FMM) and Vehicle Permits (TIP)

Just be very carefull of counting the days from when the FMM and the TIP is issued, both are for one hundred and eighty days (180) NOT six months, that can get you in trouble. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Hare you also calculating for the stress cracks induced by the vibration of the sink while driving, I had the head sink crack horizontally from road induced stress, found that the "P" trap vibrated just enough to induce tension, replaced sink and anchored the trap. navegator

Now you all you need is a place where to store an extra roll of TP and a magazine rack instead of the Sears catalogue. navegator

RE: pocket knife

Dad gave me a small folding pocketknife for my birthday when I turned 6 and had two blades one was 1 1/2" and the other one was 1/2", I found real fast that the small blade inserted in the ignition of my dads 1948 Jeep would start the motor, my brother and I learnet to drive on the front yard that day, still carry one today and have several knives from Sweden "Mora" and one made by the Laps with a raindeer horn with a carving on the handle, still have my little knife. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

We used 2 wood bread boxes turned up/side down in the C, one over the toilet and the other over the head door with laches to keep then closed and door struts to keep them open, wife definitly used them. On the pantry I used the 90 degree metal that is used for the corners in houses with driled holes so that bungee cords can be attached when travelling and one side off when parked for a longer stay, so far they work great, with 3 bungee cords per shelf, also used them for the overhead bins to keep loose items from launchin when the over head bin door is opened up, got tiered off playing catch. navegator

RE: Reducing push/pull from tractor trailers passing

If the RV has the air tabs, what is the effect on a towed vehicle in the generated votex, does the toad swerve constantly or does it track true? Or does the toad venicle need to have the yabs also to mitigate the vortex generated by the RV? navegator

RE: Stability control

Another item that un-stabilizes the RV'S is to much weight in the overhead bins, higher center of gravity over all specially galley items as an example plates made of porcelain, caned goods ETC. rather than using some thing lighter, we started off with plastic dinner ware made by Ingrid LTD. and wife latter bought a set of Corelle and substituted for the plastic. The plastic dinnerware weigh more than the Corelle and all glassware is acrylic, all coking utensils are aluminum made by Tefall they ride under the sink in cloth bags for rattle abatement, the BBQ rides in the toad, and all heavy items ride low this ensures that the center of gravity is as low as possible since a good gust off wind will push the RV and being top heavy will tend to steer to the opposite side of where the wind comes from or the bow wave push is, this motion is amplified even more than when the center of gravity is lower, that leads to stability problems. navegator

RE: Pandemic in Mexico V USA

I live in Ciudad Satelite a suburb of Mexico City and it is rare to see someone without a mask, my little 3 year old grand kid goes to pre kinder and wears a mask while in school and goes shopping with dad to the supermarket and Costco, they only let one person at a time from the family to do the shopping, in 2020 no children were allowed in 2021 yes with masks on otherwise no entrance, I guess that Mexicans take the pandemic more serious than other places. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

And then you need a 1/4 moon cutout on the door to let the eau d toilett aroma permiate trough the RV. P.S. Eau d toilett is a type of perfume French of course. Translates to toilet water, go figure! navegator

Feliz Navidad

Today is Navidad, that is when Mexicans enjoy a late dinner with family and then open the presents, some go to midnight mass and upon returning from church place the baby figure on the nativity scene. Feliz Navidad and yes I am politically incorrect and corrupt. So here it goes MERRY CHRISMASS! or in Swedish JUDD JULE! navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I used two bread boxes turned upside down on the tiny head above the door and the loo, with rv overhead springs, wife used them for everything that she needed, finding small spaces in an rv is a chalenge, I found other spaces behind the speakers in the cabin, under the couch, the pilot and copilot seats and the "shower/tub" for that space I had to cut tbe side and instal a door outside, that is where all the potable water conectors, hoses, preshure regulator, etc. recided. As you go along you will come up with more nooks and cranies to use. navegator
