RE: Postal code

Unless you have a US address on file for your credit card it is likely that playing with zip codes will not work. Aside from that using a Canadian Credit Card in the USA will incur charges from 2 to 4% from Visa/mastercard. There are a few credit cards that will not have this charge. Using Vancouver and Nogales as an example: If you travel 2000 miles each way your unit could use 500 US gallons at a cost of say $4.00 USD per gallon. 8MPG. At 3 % that would be $60.00 for the privilege of using a CDN. credit card. For thrifty Canadians tat is a hefty charge. AS for postal codes: It depends on your postal code. If it is R2W2Z4 then 22400 may not work. +

RE: Roof sealing

I would not worry about who is doing the job. rather you need to make sure they use a good product. Look for one called IMPACT 5 year. Excellent quality. Any Ferrateria should have that brand. Don't let the worker water down the product. Moisheh

RE: Nogales to HMO

As a person that spends a lot of time in HMO if you can use a bypass take it! The traffic in HMO has become ridiculous. The trucks, including doble remolques, drive right downtown. Changing lanes like they are driving a VW. It is hairy in a PU truck but in an RV it is a recipe for disaster. Lane changing, jumping red lights, driving up on the sidewalk and more. Very few good drivers. Save your sanity and take the bypass.

RE: New, Easier Pet Importation Regulations

We always have our papers and maybe once in over 25 years have had to show them. Don't know what will happen with the new rules It seems every year they come up with some new requirement. For the last 2 or 3 years it has been one ton or 3/4 ton trucks. Now it is your pets. Mexico is a sovereign nation and can make it's own rules. But they should be more like the pet rules for Canada and the USA. Have you ever heard of an Ameican pet spreading rabies??

RE: New, Easier Pet Importation Regulations

What a crock of you know what. Would you leave your pet at some border station? This is worse that the old regs. Just another reason for tourists to go elsewhere. If I were a regular tourist going on vacation and was subjected to this BS I would just turn around and never come back. Neither Canada nor the USA do anything like this. These regs are coming from a country with probably a few hundred thousand wild dogs with rabies and very other animal illness that exists.Why don't they just close the border!!! talleyho: You are trying to make out like this is an improvement. How about supporting RV'rs not the country of Mexico!

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

We have used City Express in HMO when we have medical appointments. Great spot. Nice clean rooms and excellent breakfast. You can find discounted rooms on many of the online booking sites. Moisheh

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

Chris is right. Although Border cities can be bad once you are past that point things are usually fine. Right now I would not travel past Guaymas!!!! But we would sure like to get on a plane and go back to Oaxaca and Chiapis Guaymas has more murders than Nogales! Rotten cops that get replaced all the time. Moisheh

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

There are many areas in Mexico where boondocking is not recommended. Use a Pemex for overnighting. We once went and asked the Police if it was safe to stay near the beach. He said: NO,NO,NO. Asked us to follow him and we went to this large Motel with a fenced yard. WE stayed there overnight. Ate in the restaurant and swam in the pool. No charge but we tipped the velador> QTLA knows of lots of safe spots! Moisheh

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

A number of years ago there was an announcement in the Kino community that a couple who were heading to Mexico were missing. No one here had seen them. A few days later the story unfolded. This elderly couple crossed late in the day. They saw another RV parked on the side of the road somewhere between Nogales and HMO. Figured it was safe and parked for the night. The other RV was occupied by 2 couples that had robbed a bank in the USA. Texas I think. They killed the couple and stole their RV and credit cards. The RV was spotted at Costco in HMO. The killers headed to San Carlos in some other vehicle and tried to use the credit card. Store owner called the police and the rest is history. Moral of this story is that sometimes you don't have to be worried about cartels. Rather it can be a fellow American ( or Canadian) that can be dangerous. Also do not just park for the night on the side of the road. Moisheh

NothBound crossing @ Nogales

For the last 2 years I and others were recommending taking what is known as the bus route. I am no longer recommending that route. Even some of the buses are staying on 15 . I have not tried that yet but I have been told that the US has opened up the Jersey barriers so you can change lanes at the border. If you happen to hit that bus route on a day when there are lots of Mexicans ( long weekend , big sales in Tucson) the traffic is crazy. We were pushed over and did damage to our motorhome. Moisheh

Nogales to HMO

WE came in on 15 Wednesday. Nothing much has changed. Still road construction where you have to cross over. The first toll cost me 200 pesos ( 5 axles) My MH has a tag axle and I was towing a 1/2 ton PU. Outrageous. The other 2 toll booths were closed and they were taking donations. Moisheh

RE: What temperature do you leave your home at

Deoending on where you live setting the temp at under 50 might cause structure problems. If the stat is at say 45 portions of the house will be much less. We keep ours at 60. Our outside temps can often be close minus 40

RE: TIP problems

I also do not do facebook stan could gave provided more details Or maybe the klutz that posted the info on facebook could have provided more info. Awy eas the online tip cancelled. Maybe somone trying to import a vehicle that did not match the info on the tip. Stan. If you are turned away muliple times why go back to Mexico. Perhaps it is a sign that they do not deserve your business. Moisheh

RE: TIP problems

For yrars I gave sated that Mexico is the only civilized country that does not stop all vehicles,record plates and check passports I have crossed well over 200 times. Inspected maybe 10 times. If I already have a 10 year tip and my fmm can just go right through. Many times if it is cold or early the aduaneros are not even there. I dud notice this spring that the cameras were taking pictures of car tags. No one should complain about a normal inspectio but the 1 ton truck ban is a bunch of c___.Moisheh
