When owners of fully paid-for little shops decided to hike rents to their shop tenants from $200 month to $800 month (that's US Dollars) I bailed out on Quintana Roo entirely.

Increase my profits a thousand percent -- they will still come

The shop owners have little choice but to raise prices. When forty foot RV's pull in and start using five hundred dollars a month in power to save LPG, they are going to pay for the power in rent, and reduced park service maintenance.

This life-style is too rich for me.

If I ever opened another park down here, it would be an electrical boondocking park with a 350 watt solar panel at each site. And have Mexican prices.

There are a few ways to limit power usage. One is to install meters at each site. Better yet is to have a small 20 amp type fused disconnect at each site with a 15 amp breaker. You can only get 15 amps!!
