RE: Confused about different Tireminder systems

You really should ask a Trucking Company that runs a fleet of vehicles what they think is the Best system if any! Several Tire Dealers that I have spoken with think that they are problematic and a waste of money. Most of the products that I see advertised for use on or by RV owners are rarely marketed to Commercial Users, which doesn't necessarily mean they aren't worth buying!

RE: Bypass around Tepic

I guess I should have continued typing! What I needed to add was it would be nice to avoid P.V. and Guadalajara en route to Melaque/Bara de Navidad. The existing Routes through those Cities are not for the faint of heart! I'm sure that in the coming Years there will be a decent Autopista to connect through to the new developments near the Old Tamarindo Resort.

Bypass around Tepic

We heard a report first hand today about a Newly Opened By Pass around the East Side of Tepic! Also there are some other New Roads in the Area including an Autopista from Tepic to San Blas and another to Puerto Vallarta! These are all branches that head off from Mexico 15D! If Only We could get to Tomatlan and Melaque on a decent road and avoid PV completely!

RE: Tachos in PV raises rates to 450 a night

Another bit of information about Tacho's RV Park! They are now a Good Sam Park and although they have NOT Displayed any signage to that effect will honor the usual Good Sam Discount of 10% if You are persistent! We recently stayed 12 Nights for the price of Ten, but were asked not to tell any of the existing guests for fear of an insurrection!

RE: How many Snowbirds in MX?

Just a second here folks,what I'm seeing this year is a transition taking place in the more popular areas as the Mexican Nationals and their rapidly rising Middle Class have grown in huge numbers. These folks have lots of disposable income and are filling the Holiday Destinations all along the West Coast of Mexico! They are also discovering the RV and Glamping lifestyle so that They are the people filling the decently run RV Parks! The Park that We have been using as Our Base Camp for the past dozen Years has lost most of the Canadian and Americans who dominated these choice sites and as it stands today the park is doing much better financially catering to the Mexican Families who flock here every Holiday and weekend. It is no longer a niche market primarily supported by Canadians and Americans . Certainly there will still be a few more years for those of Us still enjoying the lifestyle, but Our Days are numbered.

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

Those are indeed Newly constructed Shopping Malls! Signage in la Paz has always been an issue!

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: Mexico mainland trip in 2016

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: zacatecas

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.
