RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

I thought I would just float this out here in internet land. Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco is open for RV tourism. Or Not. A local Arizona physician was charged $300 fine for not wearing a mask in his car with his family a day or two ago. thats a little hard to believe. 300 us or 6000 pesos? I would have heard about that as is so far out of the norms it would have been discussed in our local boards It's a funny story from a friend who was getting checked out by her GYN.......He was the one who paid the fine :) I would have liked to have been the fly on the wall. How would you have heard about it?

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

I thought I would just float this out here in internet land. Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco is open for RV tourism. Russ, what are the current driving/mask restrictions? Does the second person in the vehicle still have to be in the back seat with a mask on? What about beach access, is it still restricted entry and exit points? Other mask limitations? Can I load up 6 people in the same vehicle now? Restaurant restrictions?

RE: AV gas for the generator

What's the point of paying for / running AV gas? If you want ethanol free then just buy ethanol free. It's readily available just about anywhere. Ethanol free is nearly impossible to find in some parts of the country. Marina boat fuel and racing fuel is about it. Airplane spark plugs accumulate balls of lead from 100LL avgas. The only advantage I see is if you plan to leave the generator sit unused for years.

RE: Freightliner chassis

I have noticed some owners who seem to detest Freightliner chassis that is used in our choice of motorhome. One said he would rather walk and others with some horror stories how Freightliner wouldn't help them now that their motorhome was off warranty. It's similar to the Ford, Chevy, Chrysler argument. With the Freightliner Serial Number they can get every chassis part in short order. Their parts and owner support is excellent. I wish I could say that about my Monaco.

RE: iOS 14

My aviation app, FlyQ EFB advises do not update to 14 as they have not finished testing the software.

RE: Bad air quality--finally taped a house filter on the A/C

Is that on the Return side? YES...then you will end up with diminished return airflow which can lead to Evap Coil Icing up especially with fan speed on low And make the compressor run at higher temperatures and pressures reducing its life. It's a bad idea.

RE: Duracell Golf Cart Batteries GC 2

I have a 2001 National Tradewinds and have been using GC 2 Duracell batteries for years. My current ones are 4 years old and I'm thinking of replacing them. When I pulled them up on line at Sam's club The ratings were like 2. What 6 volt batteries are you all using, I need 4. There is no Sam's Club in Saint George Utah. There was a height difference in the more expensive ones which is what I use and 235 amp hour rating. Batteries plus Bulbs sells them, order online & pick up at store with 10% discount.

RE: Latest travel warning

https://mx.usembassy.gov/mexico080620-travel-advisory-level-4-do-not-travel/ I hope the link works. The USA has issued the strongest travel warning I have ever seen . Almost like a biblical warning of 7 plagues. Very extreme and bound to harm Mexico tourism for a long time.I was shocked. There are a lot of things to consider when travelling South of the border. Residents of Puerto Penasco, Sonora have mentioned avoiding the road to Caborca which surprised me as I wouldn't have given it a thought otherwise. I suppose the economic pinch is affecting everyone. A group of us plan to visit Puerto Penasco in October but beach restrictions and travel restrictions may make it more trouble than it is worth. Sure wouldn't want to catch a cold there and deal with that.

RE: Dreaded EE code

Inline Coupler I think this is what Doug is referring to. This is 4 wire but they make a 6 wire that you may need.

RE: Leaving ceiling fan on while traveling

No reason to close the lid if you want the air flow. They are made to operate when moving.

RE: Tow Bar Age

I was given a Blue Ox 10,000lb tow bar by my neighbor. They full-timed for 7 years, then it sat in their garage for 6 or 7 years. Everything appears to be in working order. No binding, and the arms extend smoothly and lock. I emailed Blue Ox to see if they would refurb it for me (just to be on the safe side), and they said no, they recommend replacement after 8-10 years so I need to buy a new one. So who out there is using an older tow bar, and have you had any issues? Should I just buy a new one? Thoughts? Al Blue Ox has made a Corporate decision which may be to increase sales or perhaps the legal department wanted it. Blue Ox used to rebuild tow bars for about $20 which they raised to $125 recently. I have an older Blue Ox Aventa 10,000 lb. tow bar which was rebuilt by Blue Ox a few years ago and then put in storage. Although it is like new it is over 8 years old so Blue Ox will condemn it. That is a poor way to judge performance, IMHO.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

I think the thread has had a lot of great information but disrupted with some posts and perhaps egos. Overall some of us have gained knowledge which is what we are here for.

RE: 7.5 Onan Diesel Generator

Have you pulled the coolant fill hose with the radiator cap out and extended it above the top of the generator and topped off the coolant?

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

I've yet to come across one of these rigs that have 240v appliances. I'm sure they exist but kind of like hen's teeth Mine has a 240 VAC Dryer but no hens teeth. The AquaHot uses both sides with two 2000 watt elements but they are 120 VAC elements so I guess that doesn't count.

RE: Military & Customs

Is this any different from what I have seen the last year or two? Customs has been at the physical border and the Military inspection is about 100-200 feet inside the border. They both get to Meet & Greet coming and going.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

On an RV that has zero 240 volt appliances is there a reason to have the tied 50 amp breaker instead of two separate 50 amp breakers?

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

I can easily exceed 50 amps 240 VAC with 3 A/C units, AquaHot with a 2000 watt element on each leg, microwave, fry pan, hair dryer, 240 VAC dryer, instahot, etc. I have to watch it closely when DW gets busy.

RE: Why A Macerator Toilet Versus Regular

Fairly easy to solve that, guys go #1 outside. I would think it would be better to just use the other toilet when water is limited. After all, man has known for couple thousand years it is better to keep waste together, and away from people. Reading my post thoroughly will show I have two macerating toilets and no "other" toilet. Near as I can tell those "couple thousand years" were generally in the great outdoors unless urban.

RE: Why A Macerator Toilet Versus Regular

As navigator2346 says, location of the tank dictates macerator. Downside for dry camping is water usage, push the button and it's going to use a specific amount of water. Fairly easy to solve that, guys go #1 outside. In nearly 40 years of camping I've repaired many regular flush toilets. I'm in my 5th year of having two macerating toilets and had one problem, an intermittent controller. I think they are reliable and see very few problems posted on the forums.
