RE: zacatecas

Such an amazing City! The Cable Car is a Must Do! The Shopping Mall is as nice as Any that We have visited in anywhere in the World!

RE: Is 12.5 volts sufficient for battery maintenance?

Try 14.8 on a decent pair of Golf Cart Batteries! A quality Charger will bring them up ,then taper off!

RE: TV Choices?

Go to Costco and take a look at these Side by Side! Make Your decision that way! The specs are pretty similar ,but the one with the best picture would win!

RE: LTH Batteries in Mexico

Distilled water is available in Pharmacies however it is very sporadic finding it even in the Larger Cities! As a side note it is getting harder to find true distilled water even in BC Canada. When You do it is often 2 to 3 times the cost of Purified Bottled Water! The Best Prices that I have found were in Arizona!

RE: Anyone going from MN to Los Algodones?

We have used a couple of different Dentists in Los Algodones,over the Last 12 or so years. Last Spring My Wife my Wife had a Filling replaced by Doctor Navarone. There are several ,all relatives named Navarone. Take Your pick ,they have a good reputation, modern equipment and clean offices.

RE: Where to place TIP

Mine started on the lower left corner of the windshield . Then I collected a Rock which split the windshield resulting in an Insurance claim here in Canada. The Glass Replacement Company kindly Cut the Corner Off the Broken Glass . So Now I carry the Hologram on the Dash while in Mexico and in an overhead Bin everywhere else!

RE: Driver side wiper Goes too far to the left.

I had a similar experience, the Drivers side Wiper actually was slapping the forward mounted Mirror . I tried all the suggested adjustments with little success until I discovered that the Knurled ,Tapered Driver which is on the wiper drive shaft had worn out so was slipping on the shaft. I was able to rebuild the "Flat side" using JB Weld ,which got Me Home . Then I ordered a few replacement Knurled Drivers from School Bus Parts on Line! Such a Simple fix for a frustrating problem!
robatthelake 11/16/15 10:13pm Class A Motorhomes

I saw one once in Mesa ,while waiting for some repairs to me done to Our then Trailer. Size wise it wasn't much if any bigger than those other Cool Small Motorhomes made by General Motors. It was really nicely finished.

RE: Scam or bureaucratic nonsense at 28th parallel

That Spraying Staion has been in operation since long before the first trip that We made down the Baja in 1999! It was ten Pesos back then!

RE: Value of aftermarket Xenon Headlamps

I'd sure go through any new model motorhome and make sure it does not have Samauai technolgy - at the first sign of trouble it sticks a knife it its belly and yanks upward. The power goes off and the rig mimics a 1940's travel trailer. Check for adequate battery space, the roof area for solar panels, and if the headlights are more than four feet lower than the driver's eyeballs I would try them at night before I bought a rig. One of the modifications I made to my Crown was to raise headlight height 12". I have new and improved Projector type Headlights installed on My 98 Dutch Star. That are much better than the Dull ,Yellowed 96 Ford Pickup Originals but still could be better? I haven't measured them to see if they are 4 Feet or more below My Eyes, but that is a good point . I have suspected for Years that there is a correlation between sitting on top of the Headlights and sitting behind them. Just might be worth while doing some Mods to the Front end! How did You do Yours?

RE: Road Report Nogales to Perula

I just read on the San Carlos forum that some Pemex stations took water in their tanks from the storm, so watch where you fill there. Great! I usually fill at the Pemex Station on the Highway north of the By Pass. Any word if that one was affected

RE: DIY RV Macerator Pump

I built one because several RV Parks that We frequent have inadequate Sewer Lines. They as People to refrain from flushing Toilet Paper. I prefer to not have any used TP smelling up My Rig! Yes I have a sensitive Nose! The Macerator does a great job of grinding up the Black Tank contents and helps to keep the Park lines flowing freely! There is an Electrical Outlet in the nest Basement compartment to the Wet bay!

RE: Road Report Nogales to Perula

It sounds like things have improved since last Season! I'm undecided at this point .

RE: Libre / Free road Nogales to Mazatlan.

I once attempted to follow the Libre All the way but it was next to impossible for Us! Of course back in the Day a lot of the Tolls could be avoided simply by driving around them. That's no longer Doable! It will be interesting to follow Your Journey,so be sure to keep Us posted .

RE: Top down day/night shades...

If those Day/ Night shades have been correctly installed,removing them is relatively simple . Reach up behind the Valance with Both Hands. Gently pull the shade top box toward You and rotate it downward on the side facing the glass. If on the other hand the Manufacturer has driven screws into the top box ( been there ) then You may have to remove the Valance or literally stand on Your Head or use a Mirror or Digital Camera to locate those screws, remove them and rehang the repaired or modified Blinds properly!
