RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

Japanese vehicles with a "J" in the VIN "Vehicle Identification Number" can not be permanently imported in to Mexico and they can only be brought in with a Temporary Import Permit "TIP" for a 180 days once in 12 months by the same person. navegator

RE: How do you store your power supply extension cord

I will sugest that the connecting ends be pluged so that while being stored they do not deteriorate and make bad a connection, this storage method is good just make shure that if it rains water does not sagnate in the bottom. I roll the extention and clamp a plastic hand cuff purchased at Home Despot. navegator

RE: New phone dialing requirements

Calling from Mexico to the US you still need the 00-1-(area code)-number otherwise just the 10 local numbers for calls within Mexico, and all 800 US numbers are charged as toll calls again use the 00-1-800-number, some of the toll charges can be outrageously expensive. navegator

RE: Trailer wiring

Has any one of you actually cheecked the plugs that connect the trailer to the motorhome, 80% of the time theese connectors fail due to the vibration of the cable, the screws that hold the wires are minuscule and most technicians do not solder the ends, they just jam the wires on and tighten the screw, this also has the added benefit of severing the wires and the end result is a loose wire. Also take into consideration that theese connectors are open where the cable enters and water does get in, corrotion will take over and you loose connectivity, the other culprit is actually done by the person(s) vigorously either yanking on the plug and cable or moving up and dow and sideways on the connector and spreading the female receptacles in a manner that connections are either intermittent or non existing. I start at the connector on the trailer and then on the tow vehicle, then the trailer and finally the tow vehicle, I solder the wire terminals and protect both connectors with liquid rubber to prevent any water or moisture from getting in, I have not had an electric failure between the RV and the toad in 17 years. navegator

RE: If you had a month...?

You might want to try for the Grand Canyon North rim, then to the valley of the God's that area, then East to the Arches with Mesa Verde then to Durango, Silverton, Teluride, Montrose and back down to Holbrook petrified forest Flagstaf and Sedona and Jerome, Prescott and then back home. navegator

RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

Some times even lending an item can be returned in a broken state, wife lent her slicer to the neighbor and she managed to close it backwards breaking a small plastic pivot, how she managed that is a complete mistery to both of us. navegator

RE: A/C died in NY at 95 degrees......what brand to buy?

Coleman A/C units do not work when temperatures reach more than 90*F, we had a Dometic for more than 15 years and worked great in the California desert with temperatures well over 90*F to 120*+F, it eventually was beyond repair so the RV tech sold us a Coleman, that lasted a little over 3 months and never worked well over 90*F, got a new Dometic and is working great in high heat and humidity in Texas. Get a Dometic, they are easy to clean and maintain. navegator

RE: Front steer tire blowout analysis 2

Keeping both hands on the steering wheel and paying attention to the road is higlly advisable! On the other hand loollygaging along, smoking, eating, simply talking and looking at the passenger or trying to see the GPS or phone, when the tire blows the startled reaction is to slam on the brakes, and it gets worst by having only one hand to control the steering wheel and the vehicle, that and having tires that are past due because they look good, or under inflated is also bad. navegator

RE: Anchor bolts or boats

Just strap a couple of pontoons to the RV and overboard motor and purchase a Damford anchor, that way you will be ready so that if California sinks you now have beach property and a vessel. navegator

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

The stuff of hollywood fiction, the movement on the fault lines is parallel, and if there is a crack it will only be maybe a foot and a half wide and maybe a cuple of feet deep, this nonensence of being swallowed by a crack is holywood fiction, not in California, on subduction plates yes it can happen but not on slipfaults. You guys are to traumatized by the quake, they are actually fun to feel, I much rather be in a quake than a hurricane 'been in one" or a tornado. navegator

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

Safest place to be in a big quake "IS" your motorhome, to ensure that the unit does not roll the actual parking brake needs to be applied and set, not just the gear lever in park, the parking feature on the transmission is there so that the vehicle does not roll while you engage the brake pedal, it will not hold the vehicle with the rocking motion and will eventually brake, and now you have a motorhome that is maybe only held by the jacks, they might bend. A motorhome will not flip on its side, quakes are shallow ground waves, some times you can see them on a strech of road, should the jacks be down it feels the same as driving in a wash board, if you are driving and you think there is a quake, pull to the side and ride it out. Quakes in California are due to fault lines moving laterally and some times vertical "rare" and unless you happen to be parked right on top of the fault when it moves vertical by more than 4 or 5 feet your RV will not flip. navegator

RE: 6.4 earthquake rattles Southern California

As long as there are small quakes the land masses are slipping by, it is in the area of San Bernardino that the San Andreas fautlt is stuck, maybe now it will creep along instead of ripping all of a sudden, that is why one has to be prepared to be self sufficient for at least 5 days until help arrives. navegator

RE: Antiglare Visors?

If you want a really good glare shield, go to a pilots and aircraft store and look at what they have, a little expensive but they do the job, the over hang and hood on ower "C" are painted a flat or mate white and that reduces a lot of glare, I wanted to paint the hood flat black, wife would not have it, as some older aircraft had. navegator

Mr: d3500ram, next time try one steak marinated and salt only no peper, the peper burns and gives that acrid burnt flavor, of course if you like your steak with peper ignore me. navegator
