RE: warning, avoid nogales on Jan 10

Tequila , There is only enough room at Km 21 for about Four Rigs! We plugged it up with three larger units just this past Wednesday! The Station at Guaymas was Not Open either !

Eagle Pass to Villa Corona Current Road Reports!

We have travelled Out of Mexico along this route on a couple of occasions ,but have not Entered this way. The recent weather has played havoc with many Roads in Mexico ,so wondering if anyone can report on the current condition of Highway 45/49 and Highway 54 to Guadalajara. We understand that the Periferico around Guad is in very rough shape ,but that has been the case for the last dozen years. Any recent reports welcome!

RE: ARe these Mexico RV Parks still open and more

Unfortunately the Terms Good and Not Expensive do not go together in Mazatlan these days! I understand that the going rate is around $50 USD per night for short term stays! There may be a couple for a little less ,but none that I am aware of from friends recent stop over there! Copper Canyon in Los Mochis is still there and so are the Roosters! A better stop is the Pemes Truck Stop on the East side of the Highwat just over the Bridge on the South End of Loa Mochis. Not glamorous and can be busy with Transport Trucks but No Cockadoodle Do! Los Pinos is still open in Tepic though not easy to get into for larger rigs. San Jose Del Tajo remains buried in the Sprawl of Shopping Centres and Upscale Housing projects along the busy Highway leading to Villa Corona and Jacotepec. As a previous poster put it the condition is poor! Chimulco at Villa Corona is Open and still welcoming , but You are heading for Lake Chapala ,so not of much interest to You! The Outer Ring Road described by briansue2 is Our preferred route around Guadalahara and will likely work best for You. It does get very close to Villa Corona! Safe travels and be sure to post the Road Conditions South of San Carlos?

RE: Correction to Directions for La Paz bypass

RE: El Mirador RV Park

Both Perifericos are reported as being in poor condition. So going through The City Center is easier on the rig. I have been told that there is a way to bypass Navajoa entirely by going South somewhere South of Obregon on a secondary Highway ,perhaps through Bacobampo! Maybe someone has more information on that route!

RE: For those that stayed north this year.

Decided to wait until after Christmas this Year. Several reasons none of which seem important right now as the weather here in BC is so darn dreary! We won't make the same mistake next year!

RE: Bodies of Australian surfers found in Sinaloa

Those of Us who regularly visit Mexico are saddened by this latest report and offer Our sincere Condolences to the Families of the Two Young Men. I suspect that this case will end up as an unsolved suspicious event. Regardless of what the Official findings may disclose. we must All be aware of what We are doing and the Places that We are considering to Visit while in this beautiful Country. I'm so sorry that this has happened to these Young Men, Please don't let this incident spoil Your positive feelings about travelling in Mexico .

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?
