Someone had an older vehicle? I can't say I really miss points and condenser sets. I still have a tach/dwell meter and strobe timing light in the shop. You never know.

2015, it was the two Fords that both had fails...
What brand(s) were these...?
Hope the rest of the mission goes well!
I see on the inReach that you made it to the San Felipe area.

You may get more of an idea about the Pole Line Road from my article (photos and map included) when I went on Ken's 2015 run: https://www.bajabound.com/bajaadventures/bajatravel/pole_lin...

I am not Ed, but I did the run twice with the new route. IMPO, your Nissan would do fine. Our new route will deliver pinstripes, but not physical damage. The carnage you have read about would have happened any place.

Did any Fords need to be pulled? Larry and TW rule that department!

The Bronco guy was back with a different Bronco. Rich gave everyone a lesson on plugging the Bronco tire at the top of BB hill.
What Ed said. PLR was real easy compared to previous years. No rocks were stacked or moved. No deep erosion trenches, and no off camber ramps.

That was Will with the soft top Bronco in 2015... bad coil.

TW went back a few miles to the wrecked Suzuki to salvage its coil, but that didn't help. Here is TW presenting Bronco Will with then salvaged coil on top of Bad Hill down grade >>>

New entries into THE CARNAGE FILES

1. David - REAR STOCK TOYOTA AXLE HOUSING. David needs to depart early today due to rear bearing noise becoming more noticeable.

2. Richard - Rear shock mount and rear limiting strap. Shock removed. We will take it easy into San Felipe today.

3. Victor - DOMETIC FRIDGE wiring completely inoperable. Food became the casualty. Buy some ice??

4. Victor - interior rack mount broken. Another must be fabricated.

Is this a built-in Dometic fridge? 12/120v and/or propane powered?

Even if it is not a three-way fridge that can operate the cooling process on 12v, the control board needs 12v to operate. Check to make sure there is no blown fuse leading to the fridge. There is also often fuses on the control board itself. Some have a spade type 12v fuse.

Are the panel lights lighting, at least? Just not cooling?

Or are you guys basically headed home and it is no longer a priority?

On the way home from the 2nd Pole line run this season I had a complete failure in the rear. It is still in the shop in San Diego getting new housing, gears, locker, and bearings. Getting all the needed parts accounts for the long delay. Parts order error created the delay.
