RE: Will Your Next Tow Vehicle be Electric?

Maybe build highways featuring touch less Induction charging lanes along every on ramp or at 50 Mile intervals! Just drive and charge at the same time! Just thinking Trolley Buses and Slot Cars combined with current Induction charging pads! Possibly installed along Toll Roads would be the proper way to go! Not likely in my lifetime!

RE: Lukeville crossing

If you miss the huge New and pretty obvious building and it’s three entrances there is always the Empalme Facility on 15D just South of San Carlos/ Guaymas and Empalme! The building on the right side of the Highway will help you out even though the Sign says simply ONLY SENORA !

RE: Shaw Satellite

Chuck ! You are cutting pretty fine getting your setup upgraded! The LNBF that is current is a Triple Satelitte,Quad output one! To Test your existing setup get things Refreshed by the folks who have you on their account! Then try to get Channel 988 which will tell you if your existing receiver is up to date! The newest LNB was introduced about four or five years ago so you might be good to go! If not you will need to not only get a new LNB ,but also to have Shaw do a service adjustment in order to make everything compatible! They are not allowed t to offer any service outside of Canada! BTW there is a 60 Cm and a 75 CM LNB it must match the actual Grey Dish !

RE: Looking for Recommendations for a Replacement Water Pump

One thing for sure check around for the best price and compare the exact same model number on the Pump as well as on the Box! Recently at the Arizona Marketplace in Yuma I found the exact same item for Three different prices at the Three Vendors of RV related merchandise! A Hint ....don’t buy from the First Vendor you come to! Shop them all and compare the items you need! My Pump cost Me $69.00 US + Tax I saved $40. But could have only saved $20.

RE: Mr Morro !

Thankyou! Coming back to the highway just retrace you’re steps! The on ramp isn’t clearly marked but is obvious and like many along Mexican roads quick ,short and kind of scary! Incidentally highway 15 D is in pretty good condition all the way to Mazatlan. There are a few rough patches in the right hand lane but when traffic is light you can easily switch lanes and or straddle the potholes! We made it down this far with no issues other than torrential Rain that made visibility poor!

RE: Mr Morro !

Just before you reach a Gusave there is an Exit on the right called Gusave /Sinaloa de Leyva! It runs parallel to 15D along side the elevated portion of the main highway. You reach a traffic light with a sign reading Playas las Glorias 42 Km. Follow that road for a few Km in the right hand lane. You will reach a traffic light and will notice beyond it that the road turns to dirt! Hang a right on pavement ( no signage) you will slowly enter an S turn and then will see a Playas las Glorias 38 Km ! Keep headed along that road which eventually comes to a T! Go left at the T and keep going until you reach the Boulevard de las Glorias ! Turn right and continue to the end of the bricks .Mr Morro is on the Left the gate will be open the sign is not visible from the road but the owner Tobo will meet you !

RE: The first fewDays !

Southern exit to the Main Highway is smooth all the way! Do watch for Topes However!and a couple of Tractors ! Mr Morro is the better destination for a two or three night stopover!

RE: The first fewDays !

We will be exiting that way so will post about it! Last year it was in good shape having been reconstructed the previous year! I will report from the next place with WIFI! BTW The mosquitos and other biting and crawling critters are awful so bring OFF and After Bite!

RE: The first fewDays !

They stopped us and said that we needed to follow them ! We have been here numerous times over the last 20+ years so did not need to be shown the way! I suspect that since there were 5 Rigs together they figured One of us would buy them a cervaisa!

The first fewDays !

So we arrived at the Nogales Mariposa border crossing on Wednesday morning after spending a night in Tucson! There was absolutely nobody paying any attention to the three of Us as we drove slowly through the Border area! We all had our passports ,Visitor Papers and TIP documents as well as our Insurance papers ready for inspection ,but not a single soul so much as waved at us! The highway 15 D was in very good shape this year and the By pass around Hermosillo is fantastic!! The signage is good so anyone who can read should have absolutely no problem getting on the right road! Many of the Toll booths were taken over by the locals so the toll cost has been pretty easy on the pocketbook. Fuel prices are as stupid here as they are in BC ! The Western Periferico around Navajoa was in excellant condition .apparently the Eastern one sucks! We were headed to Huatabampito so enjoyed the ease of access! We managed to pickup two more rigs while at a Totonaka! We were escorted from the Periferico around Huatabampo and all the way to our RV Park at Huatabampito by the State Police! That’s all for Today!

RE: tv

Boca De Iguanas Access Road hwy 200

This just received from Tom and Tanni please share that Hwy 200 from Bahia Azul to 2 mi on the other side of the La Manz entrance is under major construction. Guess it will eventually go all the way to Melaque. Anyway, the entrance to Boca is really a mess at the moment. Getting RV's or 5th wheels in will take diligence and patience. The north bound lane is now what was the south lane, and the south bound lane goes behind the triangle/bus stop and then winds around to join 200 at the point of entrance to Boca. All is well as there is NO oncoming traffic, can take the entrance as we always have. However, if cars are coming , think one will have to come to a complete stop at the Y they have formed and wait until no traffic is coming. The entrance they have constructed is very tight with a pavement drop off. Anyway, just wanted to let a warning go out.

RE: Shaw channel update

Apparently it’s a Winegard ! I’m thinking it won’t work without the recent upgrade!

RE: dometic thermo prob

there is a work around using just the Furnace wiring and an everyday coil type of Thermostat! It takes a bit of effort and a schematic to see which wires to splice into. I can say that the Telco Wire is not used to perform this ! I just followed the installation instructions that are available on line for the furnace itself ,mine is a Suburban! A Thermostat is just a Switch that opens and closes automatically to a set temperature!

RE: MaxxFan (Smoke with Remote Control) Best For Ventilation?

I had never had any issues with Fantastic Vent Fans until they were bought out by the current owners! Now looking at the changes that they have made to the product that needed no changes , I reluctantly will have to buy something else! They used to guarantee their products virtually forever and seldom were there issues with quality or parts failing. This new crop of products will not stand the test of time! Like most products on the market today it’s all about the Bling and nor about quality of construction!
