RE: Leaking bath room sink

G-flex two part epoxy made by West Systems Epoxy. Follow the directions. It will adhere to anything you have and is completely water proof jack L

Keep in mind, those LOUD navy jets are flying over all day long just above your place at low level take off and landings. From one who also loves Similar Sound and the Saddlebunches for kayaking Jack L

RE: Best way to stabilize 40' travel trailer from shaking

I have mine rock solid. It is a 40 footer, and I have it on a permanent site. We will be snow birding in it for six months. Don't jack it up. Just get it perfectly level and then put down your stabilizers. Then use concrete blocks for piers. On some of mine I needed two blocks and on others places three. On top of the blocks I used shims, (cedar shingles)pounded in. On some of them I also had to use treated lumber, (2" x 6"'s) between the top of the blocks and under the shims. I used three piers on each side. It comes out as solid as your house. Jack L

RE: slide out

In. It only makes sense. Why leave their roof exposed to weather? We are six months snow birds and leave our long 40 footer when we return to our house with the slides in. While we are in it we close them and then open them again once a month, just to exercise them. Jack L

RE: your own camp sites

I don't know where that is, but if it was in the Florida Keys it would cost over five times that. The only difference being that you can stay year round in them in the Keys. I am guessing that the 180 days there keeps them classified as RV's Jack L

RE: Panel access ideas

Mine was that way, and I added hinges and a latch. That compartment is now also used to store items Jack L

RE: FSU Beats Mich. 33 -32 Orange Bowl

Thanks for posting the score. I went to bed after the first half and was rooting for FSU and was wondering how the second half went. For my take; the advertising making the games last so long has ruined football. That is both college and pro jack L

RE: Is any one here a stand up paddleboarder?

No, we jumped right in ! For what it is worth, make sure you don't get ones that are too small. They will be very unstable. Mine is a 12 footer and is 33" wide and hers is 31" wide and 11'-6" long. I think we took kind of natural to them since our kayaks are long skinny ones (mine is 18' and hers is 16' and we also race both canoes and the kayaks. We are hooked on them, but I won't tell you ours ages. You'll think we are nuts ! With all that said, why not rent them first to see how you'll do ? jack L

RE: Water filling at dump station

Might make for some tasty water ! Regardless to what anyone says here, that sure is a no, no ! Jack L

Is any one here a stand up paddleboarder?

My wife and I are long time canoers and kayakers and for several years have wanted to try stand up paddleboards. I kept watching on Craigs list for some, but they were all too expensive. A few weeks ago, I bought her one for her birthday and after trying it she got me one for Christmas, (we stopped giving each other presents a long time ago, but both holidays were a good excuse to get them) We now have been on them four times and love them. Yesterday we went four miles on them and even ventured close to a power boat channel to get the feel of waves, (small ones!). We find that for undersea viewing here in the shallows of the Florida Keys they are much better than the kayaks since we are higher and can see farther. We are still cautious and only use them on calm days, and don't dare move around on them, but gain more confidence each time out. The plus is that they are a great work out. Jack L

We sold ours 25 footer last month on Craigs list. The second people that looked at it bought it for $200 less than I had it listed for. The trailer was in perfect condition and they recognized it. We have had several calls from them since telling us how happy they are with it Jack L

RE: Question for you do -it yourselfers

If your sabre saw is variable speed, use the slowest speed. You also can spray it with a mist of water to cool the plexiglass. That "spray mist" might be just the ticket. I tried a bunch of different sabre saw blades at a bunch of different speeds, and none worked. What finally did was a hack saw blade by hand and forcing the turn. I did note on line that they do sell special sabre saw blades for plexiglass curves. I'll have to pick up one if I can find one. Jack L

Question for you do -it yourselfers

How do you cut large round curves in quarter inch plexiglass ? I have no problem cutting it straight with a circular saw, but every time I try a curve with my sabre saw the material just melts back together after the cut. Is there a special blade for cutting it ? Jack L

RE: Warming Up Your Car in the Cold Just Harms the Engine

I don't much care who says what. When it is cold out I want to get into a warm vehicle I'll run out to the truck -start it up and put the heater on. Then I go back in the house and wait until the cab is nice and warm before driving it. I guess I must trade in my vehicles before the engine gets hurt jack L

RE: Keystone vs Jayco vs Forest River vs Grand Design

We are in our third month with our new 2016 Forest River. We made the mistake of buying by a floor plan and not the quality. The quality and workmanship is terrible and their warrantee will keep you from using your trailer it takes so long to get anything done. It is not the dealers fault, but it is Forest Rivers. the dealer has to submit pictures to Forest River, and then they look for the cheapest way out and sit on the claim for ages. Do yourself a big favor and take Forest River off our list. I have been waiting for over a month for a simple rerouting of some water pipes that have been leaking because they were installed between the frame and the structure. Jack L

RE: Moles

Whack a mole ! Or better yet, what I do: Stand on the front porch with my 22 ten feet above them and every time one pops his or her head out of their hole down below, I have some good target practice. But then again, we are in the high country of NC on a dead end road, and I could set off a bomb, and it wouldn't bother any one. jack L

RE: Merry Christmas

Thanks from us two snow birds and the same to you. Having been born and brought up in the north east and had way too many years of commuting in and shoveling snow; the two of us who love paddling canoes and kayaks in the balmy Florida Keys really feel blessed to be six month snowbirders.
