RE: Home Depot

The last time I shopped at Home Depot, I got it. If they deny me any time, I'll just write an e-mail to their home office telling them that from now on I'll do all my buying at Lowes Jack L

RE: Kind of interesting on mold

My wife happened to notice that our parked trailer had mold growing on the cabinets and factory wood paneling and decided to wash it all down. Since we have had the trailer, I have built a lot more cabinets and installed them every where there was empty space along with other modifications using matching wood work and panels. I finished all my work using polyurethane, and she found that every thing that had my finish did not have any mold and all of the factory stuff did. Needless to say I am adding to my "to do list" to polyurethane all the factory panels. Jack L I know you said you polyurethaned your wood cabinets but just want to check if it was water based or oil based. I find that sometimes people use the term interchangeable. I agree that you prolly need more/better ventilation. It is oil based Jack L

RE: Kind of interesting on mold

Are you going to poly your mattress and cushions too? If you have this much mold then you need to ventilate your rig. Do you have covers over your roof vents so you can leave them open a bit? If not then this should be your first step. Mine is parked in my yard and we are a mile from the Atlantic and except for a little growth on the rubber roof, my rig stays dry. All the vents are opened and it is under a roof. You evidently didn't glean what I wrote. The only place that has the mold is the factory wood work. Jack L

RE: residential refrigerators Iin a TT

My thoughts: 1. It is nice to have both the electric and gas option which you won't have with a residential refrig. 2. A residential refrig will add way too much weight. Jack L

RE: Winterizing pump hose attachment

Just disconnect the incoming hose to the water pump, (the one that comes from your tank) and connect your antifreeze hose there Jack l

RE: 2 5/8" ball hard to release

Simple solution that some one posted here about five years ago, and I have to do every time I unhitch. After you remove the weight distribution bars and any sway bars. Just jack the trailer all the way down and then remove the hitch pin. Jack it up again, and the hitch will move just enough to take the tension off and the trailer should come right off the ball.

RE: Lexel

I use Lexel a lot on our kayaks. It is far superior than silicon, but it costs a third more. It is used as a sealant, but I would not use it in place of contact cement or a marine glue. Jack L

I drive that route every year and never worry like every other route in the country that I drive on because I don't speed. Jack L

Fun at the picnic table

My biology teacher daughter brought this interesting tidbit to our annual labor Day outing yesterday. She had our many grandchildren as well as her brothers and sisters and us old grandparents playing with termites. Yes termites! All that is required is a small cheap artists brush, a piece of plain white paper and a Bic red ball point pen. And naturally termites -just go out in the woods with a jar and turn over some rotten logs until you find some and then scoop up a bunch with the jar. Place the paper down on the picnic table or any suitable flat surface. Shake some termites onto the center of the paper. Before they can crawl off the paper, draw a circle around the outside of them with the red pen, making sure you touch the end where you started with the end, (in other words make sure the two ends touch) Then watch the termite round-up! -If some of them made it outside the circle before you drew it, just brush them back with the artist brush Once you see what happens, start a few experiments using the red pen to add smaller circles that touch the large one. Then play around around by trying some with a black ball point pen. Report back after you try it and see if you get as entertained as all of us did Jack L

RE: leaving fresh water in tank?

Drain it. You'll end up with some gross water Jack L

RE: Question to physitists

That is odd ! I have a similar problem. Each year my canoe and kayak is harder and harder to load on my vehicle roof. I figure they must be getting water logged. Also my high end road bike and mountain bike get slower and slower. I figure it must be time for new wheel bearings Jack L

RE: Lift trailer under frame or axle

I always lift mine with the jack under the axel schackles, but last year after ten years of doing that, I found a much simpler way. Just hitch up and drive one wheel up on blocks until it is high enough to lift the other. Jack L

RE: Enclosed trailer to be camping trailer?

If you can't afford a factory made one, and are handy, I would do it in a heart beat. Get all the dimensions, and then design the interior on paper to scale and then go for it. Good luck Jack L

RE: Stabilizing my Trailer

At that length, if it was me, I would add a couple more stabilizers, and then I would use home built eight inch tall boxes under all of them. Jack L

RE: Question about Eazy lube axles

I am on my second trailer with the EZ lube, and that is all I use. I have never had a problem. As soon as I see the new grease coming back out I stop. I think it is imperative that no matter which method you use, you should do a walk around at every gas stop or pit stop and feel each hub for overheating The EZ lube bearings are put there to make life easier and a lot less messier and that is why I use them Jack L

RE: Colorado or Tenn campground advice wanted.

Roan Mountain State Park in TN. is as beautiful as any state park you could go to. the campground is along a small trout stream and if you luck out, you could get a spot that backs up to it. It is right at the base of 6000 foot Roan Mountain, where the Appalachian trail crosses it at Carvers Gap and in October it is beautiful. I highly recommend it. Jack L

Yellow jackets (the stinging ones)

When I am elected president my first law will be to banish all Yellow jackets from the face of the earth. I don't think a year has gone by when I have not been stung by those little buggars while doing my yard work, and today was my day for this year. Jack L

RE: Stabilizer Jacks

You get much better stabilization if they are not extended. I made up four boxes that I use under mine, and my 26 foot trailer seems rock solid with them plus a larger box for under the tongue jack JackL
