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!

RE: All these questions on routing???

I ask her because I value the input of others! Sure I can find My way around every Place on the Planet, there are as You say Maps and Guidebooks. Not to mention Google Earth and Our Faithful GPS! All that being said none of these resources is as informative as the various opinions expressed by People who have been there recently or who know the various current weather conditions and Routes! Isn't this the place to exchange useful and informative information? I thought it was !

RE: Eagle Pass Texas to Gateway Colorado in April

We are just passing through Eagle Pass on Our way from Mexico ,home to Western Canada! You are right,there isn't much there besides a Casino Parking lot with a small RV park. We will head right through to A nice place at Rio Frio .

RE: Eagle Pass Texas to Gateway Colorado in April

We would like to see and compare Carlsbad Caverns to the Karchner Caverns in Arizona! We have visited Kartchner in previous years. Hard to beat,but Open to comparison for sure. We will spend a couple of Days At Rio Frio visiting friends then head West and North! Hoping that all the snow has melted by the time that We get there!

RE: Stainless propane hoses

I have had one of the stainless armoured hoses for several Years! It is certainly more flexible than the straight Rubber ones used on most Barbeques ! To be honest I haven't given it much thought! I only bought it because it was all I could get at the time I needed a hose.

RE: Satellite TV

Each receiver requires its own cable to the LNB on the Dish or Dome! If the receiver is a PVR it will require an additional RG6 Cable .

RE: Ceiling Stain

Try some of that 1000+ Stain remover . Apply and scrub with a white Towel. Our rig had some Red Wine sprayed ....Don't Ask! On the Window Shade ,that had dried for quite a while. It has now vanished !

Any suggestions on which route to take! Looking for Scenic attractions and such! Will be stopping at the Gateway Auto Collection to see that Olds F88!

RE: Two Questions

It's Coconutz at Cuyutlan! At this point in time I would give them a A for effort! A wee bit too exposed for our taste,but certainly clean and there is potential for a small RV Park. If My count was right there was a total of 4 RVPads . Very Clean Washrooms with an observation deck on the roof!

RE: outside shower

Over the years there have been hundreds of shower stalls built using PVC tubing! And a Tarp or two ,A Simple design for any handy person ,but realistically a Garden a Hose with a decent nozzle and a couple of fatigue mats or pieces of same will work just fine ! Keep the bathing suits on ,or Not depending where We are and who We are with works fine! Most RVs have an outside Shower ,but the garden Hose left in the Sunlight works as well! Put a plastic wash pan outside the door to clean off the sand on their feet!

RE: RV Parks in need of a Plug!

So get down here and patronize these Parks and all the other Rv Parks who are struggling to stay alive! A message to those People who are still on the fence about RVing to Mexico! Get over it! Things are great down here and although there are a few Miles of Rough Roads the Beaches, Coastal Communities and those Fantastic Colonial Cities are well worth any inconvenience! Why are You freezing Your Butts off in Arizona ,Texas,and even Florida when You can be Visiting Sunny ,Happy, and RVFriendly Mexico! Get with the program , escape the ghettos of Surrey and Abbotsford ,chase the Sun to Mexico! Join the few of Us that Know the real Mexico! Caravans are available!

RV Parks in need of a Plug!

For any of You Brave Travelers to Mexico ,wishing a safe haven ,where the water is pure and clean right out of the Tap. That has good 30 Amp Electricity, and numerous nearby Restaurants and Stores. Look no further than Valle de Juarez/ Mazamitla. There are Two excellent RV Parks located within a half mile of each other that can certainly fulfill Your needs! The largest of them is Hacienda a Contreras .www.haciendacontreras.com...excellent value ,super clean with easy access to both Towns. The name of the other park is Hacienda El Retiro. They have a Restaurant that serves up some yummy dishes! Either park is strategically located between Guadalahara and Patzquaro,or the West Coast . I highly recommend visiting and staying for a night or even a week and NO ! I do not have any financial interest in either location.

RE: Port Angeles to Victoria

I have lived on Vancouver Island since I was 16 ,. Apart from a couple of Years working on the lower mainland and travelling all over BC as a part of My Job I would say that that is most of My Life! I'm now nearly seventy? There are still places on the island that I haven't got to yet! If You just want to see Victoria and do Butchart Gardens in a couple of Days ,leave Your Vehicles in the US and walk onto the Coho ! Ride the City buses or take one or two of the numerous Tours! Unless You have a Few weeks to spend don't bother bringing Your Rig over at all! What You will save in ferry fees will pay for some nice meals and a decent Hotel Room!

RE: Would you buy a 200k miles Pusher?

300 Cummins and with it being a 1996, it does not have a computer controlled fuel system. Manual fuel pump to feed the manual injection pump. HP can be turned up in about 30mins for free. I see my first Diesel Pusher as a step for me for moving up later. Since it's the 8.3 and you know how to turn it up for free or regrind the fuel plate to a #10... you are way ahead of most on here and doing your own work will not be a problem. May take more than 30 minutes if you have to drill one of the four bolts that hold the end on. That's a lot of MH for $15K or maybe less and for the amount of use you posted and if everything works, I'd go for it. Is it really as simple as modifying the Fuel Plate to increase the HP? What will this do to Fuel consumption and reliability?

RE: Hermosillo RV Park.. OPEN .Fausto

It would certainly be a game changer if You were open from Nov 1 thru the end of March. The only problem is the deplorable condition of the Highway 15 and High Fuel Costs is causing some of Us to reroute via Texas. I will continue to base Camp at Boca de Iguanas..Boca Beach RV Park but will not subject My RV to the cruddy road conditions that unfortunately plague Highway 15 / 15D!
