Beach weather, sand, salt, wind are absolutely brutal on beach homes and equipment but it is even worse and more expensive if they are not given adequate periodic maintenance. Trust me on this.Yeah, we keep saying we’re going to do it but there’s always so many other maintenance problems that take priority. Damn salt air! Radiator probably needs replaced by now, everyone else’s did, salt and aluminum don’t get along. Battery, hoses, coolant, oil change... Makes me appreciate the propane fridge’s we used to use.
PerfectI kept up on my generator that runs on propane (1000 L tank) and run it every time I come down. Just had it running last weekend. Also kept my solar and updated it a couple years ago to bidirectional so I'm always selling power back to CFE besides. So I s/b good no matter what.
Very true, but due to CFE being unbelievably dependable the generator maintenance has been moved to the back burner. We have been budgeting 11K annually for maintenance and the account is running on empty more times than not. That’s doing the maintenance in-house and hiring contractors only when needed. But the current incident reminds me that we need a backup plan in case of extended power outage so I’ll bring a battery down next week and get busy.Beach weather, sand, salt, wind are absolutely brutal on beach homes and equipment but it is even worse and more expensive if they are not given adequate periodic maintenance.

They have to leave them if it’s in the community. There’s no getting them out of here. Several had left their vehicles on the incoming road on the other side of where the river washed out the road. They will be able to retrieve them and drive back out to the highway.We were scheduled to come down on Saturday but held off, glad we did. I am wondering if the evacuees will have to leave their vehicles behind.
Just got back to Phoenix.I talked to people this morning who saw what was posted , drove from Encanto to Luna Blanca on the beach and took the Mayan road out. Not sure if they went to caborca then sonoyta or penasco then sonoyta
