RE: This net is dying!

I suspect that a part of the reason there are fewer and fewer posts has to do with how slowly one gets a response to questions here. That other social media forum gets virtually instant access to answers and that’s what most of us are interested in. I’m as guilty as anyone in dragging my feet to respond. Heck I even have found answers to my questions on the other site before I even got the question typed! As far as crabs go I don’t think anyone has called me one and if they have I don’t really care!

RE: Tourist Permits (FMM) and Vehicle Permits (TIP)

The issue getting through to register for the TIP and apparently you can now print the document at home. Is that your device probably has a no cookies setting in place.

RE: Starlink

I wish that I had known about the pricing difference. Maybe our monthly fee will drop while we are in Mexico to cushion the blow. It is what it is and as long as it works we will be happy. The dish which is a rectangle is 17 x 24 inches aprox and is actually flat contains all the Space X electronics. The power supply/ Router is a pretty universal piece of equipment. Everything you need is in the box . Just follow the on line instructions and hey presto! I say this because most of us are used to the satellite Dishes used by Shaw and all the other Satellite TV providers. Where you could virtually use any curved surface to reflect the signal to your LNB Star link is entirely different ,it aims itself so regardless of where you may be in the World it will find the correct signal and adjust to provide the best signal. The only issue being obstructions. And unlike the satellite bands in geostationary position above the equator . Their Satellite's are only a few hundred miles up and are constantly in motion relative to your ground position.

RE: Warning for Blue Ox base plates on Honda CR-Vs

It isn’t only the Blue Ox Brand that has questionable design issues! We have an Excalibar by Demco Tow Bar and Baseplate which separated from the front of our 2007 Honda CRV! In our case I chocked it up partially to the inability to check the various bolts to see if any were becoming loose. And the attachment design of the baseplate. The Base Plate and Hitch assembly always felt secure and towed well for about 40,000 Miles. Then during a slow turn while proceeding left at a Stop sign with a loud rendering of metal the entire Base Plate and lower Plastic Bodywork tore off . The only thing connecting the car to the Motorhome was one extra cable that I had attached to the tie down ring on the Honda and the safety chain loop on the Motorhome. I have photos but am unable to post them to this website! The design flaw is that the Baseplate was not properly designed to utilize the Hondas Bumper mounting points but rather was attached to the Sheet metal of the unibody ! From what I have read this same issue has occurred on other makes of vehicles that are unibody.

RE: Road from PV to Barra de Navidad

Ok so we have been down here in mexico since November! Highway 200 south of PV is in decent shape all the way through to Melaque.There are a few unfinished areas so be aware. Hwy 80 from Melaque to Villa Corona is terrible lots of tight turns and huge potholes on much of it! Autopista 54D which runs from Manzanillo up to Guadalajara is in good shape but has tolls which are not the bargain they were 2 years ago! There are still plenty of us down here and lots of newbies this season,but yes the traffic is less than in years past! Obviously COVID has had an affect . Interestingly since we came down in the late fall the Tolls have increased along with The price of Fuel. We have elected to bypass several sections of 15D on the way north. The Libre sections that are available through Sinaloa are a bit slower but in very good shape .
