RE: Changing Screen Mesh - No-See-Ums?

With years of use, I thought the screening in my RV worked well. I camped next to the Colorado river near Moab and was plagued by a hatch of small gnats. The first night I gave up, turned off the lights and went to bed early. The second night I sprayed DEET on the screens. That works pretty well and I was able to stay up and watch a movie on my laptop. Added protection, thanks!

RE: Changing Screen Mesh - No-See-Ums?

Thanks, everyone. It is worth a try should we go to the Mexican coast.

Changing Screen Mesh - No-See-Ums?

Has anyone ever changed out their screens with mesh sufficient enough to reduce no-see-ums in the RV? If so, what type or size of screen mesh did you use? Thanks in advance.

RE: Anyone heard of LIV trailers?

Great for boondocking. Who wants to haul around a 13.5 btu boat anchor you can't use? Can't use? They do make bigger generators. 3500w runs a 15k a/c just fine. In a small TT, the noise and vibration generated by a 13.5 are unbearable not to mention the revving and fuel consumption. A 2000 is very practical for a small TT, easy to carry, uses less fuel and less noise.

RE: Anyone heard of LIV trailers?

Window air is a nice option in a 19 foot trailer , it should run on a 2,00 watt generator with no mods ! X2 Great for boondocking. Who wants to haul around a 13.5 btu boat anchor you can't use? A window unit is quiet, efficient, and sized properly for the size. I can run a 6000btu window unit for up 12 hours using a Honda 2000 and one tank of gasoline.

RE: Google Maps Toll Prices

But this is an RV forum and car prices do not mean much. Dually trucks are considered 3 axles. A MH with a tag is considered 4 axles So a tag mh towing a regular truck may pay as 2 separate vehicles or they combine all the axles. I paid 200 pesos at the Nogales toll booth going south! They are car prices that are valid for class B motorhomes. I was hoping that someone else might have additional knowledge on how to find the dually and additional axle prices on a map app for travel trailers.

RE: Google Maps Toll Prices

....anyone ever try out TollSmart? It advertises as a free toll calculator (Apple and Android) for passenger cars (2 axle) Canada, USA and Mexico (and Brazil). here--> I'm going to try it in a month for Canada and USA accuracy. Reading an article on TollSmart providing its toll price data to Google Maps for drivers in the US... On edit: .....I'm trying TollSmart's web browser app to calculate a US stretch of tolls that I already know. 100% accurate. Now, I'll try Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey, via 85D.....drum roll....282.00 MEX. Does this sound correct? TollSmart trip calculator here--> According to the SCT website, Traza Tu Ruta, the exact amount for an automobile from Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey is . . . 282 pesos BINGO!

RE: Google Maps Toll Prices

Here is a picture of the Google map showing the toll price. It is the total price from SMA to Oaxaca. Not sure how to show each toll booth or if it is even available. I guess you would have to map different stops. After choosing the destination, select directions, and then click on the three dots choosing options and toll fees. The price will appear on the map.

RE: Google Maps Toll Prices

I just saw that and updated my app. Where do you see toll prices? I am going to be leaving Zihua and heading to Playa in the next couple of days. I would like to try it and see if it is accurate. On my Samsung, they appear automatically but only for autos. On my patito it doesn't. You should be able to click the three dots in the upper right-hand corner after choosing your destination and then click on show toll prices. I'm new to this so it will be a learning experience.

Google Maps Toll Prices

New to me, I tried Google Maps toll cost (for example Monterrey to Saltillo 121 pesos). It only shows one toll price so I am assuming that is for a car or van. Is there a way to check all the toll prices on an android?

RE: Our BC, Vancouver island & sunshine coast tour. Lotsa Pics

Cool trip! We thought about your Tesla travels driving to San Miguel de Allende this week. We passed several Tesla charging stations along the autopista. It won't be long before we'll see EVs towing around these parts. Tesla is selling quite well here along with the Volvo EV. We were on Vancouver Island in 2014. What a great place to rv.

Changes to Mexican Immigration Procedures

U.S. Embassy, Mexico City Mexican immigration authorities (INM) have implemented a pilot project to eliminate the Forma Migratoria Multiple (FMM) in select airports across Mexico. Under the new pilot program, INM stamps the visitor’s passport with the period of authorized stay instead of issuing a paper FMM. As of the publication of this alert, INM has not yet updated its website to reflect this change in procedures or the pilot program. Please follow the instructions provided by immigration officials and your airline. U.S. citizens are reminded to carefully review and abide by the period of admission authorized by immigration authorities upon entry. Visitors to Mexico are required to carry their original passport—not a copy—at all times. If you received a paper FMM upon arrival, you are also required to keep that with you and should be prepared to provide it to immigration authorities when you depart. Visitors not carrying their passports or who remain in Mexico beyond the authorized period may be detained, fined, and/or deported.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

Meh, this whole only being able to tow 100 miles and then having to charge thing is bogus. That’s for a specific size, profile and weight of trailer. There are thousands of EV RVers on the Facebook towing groups who are getting double that towing smaller, low profile and lighter trailers. There are lots of different sized RV’s. If you have a bigger trailer with a larger profile then stick with gas or diesel. Nobody is making you choose otherwise. But for those towing smaller RV’s you simply have a third option. Towing with an EV is a very good experience. Torque, power, centre of gravity and braking are just a few of the advantages of towing with electric. Personally I think the towing ranges will double in the next 5 years. Maybe sooner. Thank you for putting things into perspective.

RE: Dying in Mexico

My brother died in Playa del Carmen four years ago. I was in Ecuador and she sent me the police report to translate. They offered to do an autopsy but that would require keeping the body for a couple of weeks. My SIL opted for cremation and was back in Idaho with his ashes three days later. No problems. I believe authorities are sympathetic to foreigners and Mexico has or had good relations with the U.S.

RE: Dying in Mexico

To obtain my Mexican pension I needed an apostille. I had one but after 38 years they wouldn't accept it. I called the state of Missouri and they had it to me in less than 10 days via U.S. mail (sent to my Mexican mailbox in Texas). The translation was even quicker and cost 1700 pesos from a licensed and registered translator.

RE: Starlink

A fan of nomad rvers in the U.S., many have done videos on the inefficiencies of Starlink on the road. I don't know how much of that is true but the reviews are out there. We've been doing well with our Telcel hotspot.

RE: Las Jaibas

I sent them an email and this was their reply: Buenas tardes! Si estamos trabajando y si aceptamos reservaciones para invierno. Necesitaré su nombre completo, tamaño de su vehículo y fecha de llegada. ¡Saludos!

RE: Best security cameras for travel trailer?

Nomadic Fanatic uses security cameras on his rv to keep an eye on his pets while away, people who may walk by or near his rv at night, and overall security. He can see what's happening via his cellphone while away and can check his flat screen when he thinks something may be happening outside. Installing 8 Camera Mobile Security System on RV
