RE: San Blas bypass route

We came down that way in November! The Road was in pretty good shape then,but this is 4 months later so it might have washed out and or grown over by now!

RE: Tool: how far can I travel in x hours?

Back in the Days when Triple A Maps were the King ,They published the average times along with the Mileage between Key Points on their map. They were pretty much bang on if You were driving a Car,but Towing a Trailer usually needed twice the time. Nowadays we have better Cars that are capable of greater speeds and it seems to take even longer to get from A to B . I guess that the increased traffic has a lot to do with that.Or maybe it's My Age! In any event We no longer worry about how long the journey takes,but rather the quality of the experience. Drive Safely out there!

RE: Duo-Therm Control unit will not come on

The problems that We had affected the Female Sockets on the front Air Conditioner Penguin Unit . They corroded badly so needed replacement. Use a very fine Soldering Iron to de solder from the Board then resolder a new Socket into place on the board. The male Wire Ends were fine but We replaced those as well ! As Chris indicated they are not wired like Normal Telephone wires but rather as Data Cables. Pay attention to the arrangement of the coloured wires.

RE: Beware the gas-station scam in Mexico

There are crooked Gas Station Attendants and Operators in every Country in the World! Always have been and always will be more! I have been stung in Canada,in My Home Town on more than one occasion . Yes it happens in Mexico and the USA!

RE: Duo-Therm Control unit will not come on

The Telco connectors in the Roof mounted Air Conditioners are problematic and are a bit difficult to change. Download a trouble shooting chart from Chris Bryant on the net! The connectors are available from various on line sources . There are several styles Tyco is one supplier! Also there are two In line Fuses located under the refrigerator on top of the Furnace that may have blown. Make sure that the Blower Switch located in the Water Bay is in the Off position as they also have an occasional problem which will blow the fuse!

RE: Overnight in celestino

Do Yourselves a favor this Year, by staying in Mazatlan and getting a decent Meal at one of the many good Restaurants! Then leave early the next day! Celestino is more Cerrado then Abierto this Season!

RE: South America??

I have not made the trip myself ,so can't offer any first hand information,however we do come across a rig or two who are mostly from Europe that are either heading to or returning from South America that stop in Mexico. They are usually German or Swiss although presently there is a Couple in Our RV Park who are Australian/Canadians who are intending to take their 34 foot Class A Motorhome all the way to Patagonia. The Internet is not cooperating Today ,so I will ask Them where they obtain their information and get back to You.I will also ask them to contact You via a PM !

RE: Pemex number for overnighter in Los mochis

I can't remember the Number,but it is located on the South end of Los Mochis. There are two Large Pemex Stations and a clearly marked EXIT indicating a Truck Stop. We have had success staying at the Complimentary Pensione at the Station on the East side of the Road! We always fuel up before entering the Parking area and Tip the Escort $50 Pesos! Like every Large Truck Fuel Stop there will be Rigs moving about throughout the Day and Night! That said it is quieter than the alternatives including the Chicken Farm near the RV Park further North.

RE: Tofino/Ucluelet or Port McNeill/Campbell River?

You could do both! Both of Your picks have multiple sights to see! One is not better than the other,just different!

RE: Breakaway car

I reported on a similar incident that occurred three Years ago. The Car was an Equinox the Tow a Bar and Baseplate were Demco! The Owners got a decent settlement for the damage to their Vehicles! Basically the. front Facia fell off the Car! Poor design of both Vehicle and the Base Plate ! Incidentally their Auxilliary Braking System did not activate ! Fortunately they were on a divided Highway and at the first Hill the Car stopped then rolled backwards into the divider! Traffic was light at the time of the incident so no one was injured .

RE: Old Toad/New Experience

We towed a 92 ,Tracker 2 WD with 5 Speed Manual Transmission for nearly 12 Years . The Book said it could Not be Towed 4 Down! Our good friend and Mechanic looked it over and said that it would be no problem! Apparently there were a few different Transmissions used ,Ours was the same unit found in Toyotas of similar vintage. The only problem that We ever had was the typical Synchromesh issue that plagued just about every one of those Tranmissions! In all those years That wonderful little vehicle never let Us Down!

RE: Cerritos Beach RV Park

Tres Hernandos is a chain of Shoe Stores! Emiliano Zapata was one of the Heros of the Revolution . In any case The OP never did indicate which Playa Cerritos !

RE: Dealing With Unrest (tips)

The same thing applies everywhere in the World! In Vancouver BC Canada We have experienced Riots and Mob Mentality on several occasions ! I imagine that foreign Visitors caught up in these were terrified as was I and I speak the language! Avoid this sort of situation at all costs!
