RE: Go Pats!!!!! Woot!

Second the "Go Pats" from this born and brought up in Boston Patriots fan. I watched the whole game, and that hit to Gronk was terrible. First that one idiot hit him at full tilt in his head with his helmet, and then when he was down the second guy kicked him in the head and that only showed up on the replay. With out that, I thought Jacksonville played a superb game and the Pats were lucky to come out of it in the fourth quarter. Jack L

RE: Trailer Jack

I use a bottle jack under the "U" shackle. I don't trust the thin base of the bottle jack so I made a ply wood base that clamps on to the jack base. Jack L

RE: Florida for those sensitive to mold

Thanks for all the feedback. We are in AZ this winter, but are both having a lot of allergy issues which I think are from dust. I have a feeling that FL might actually be more manageable for us. Possibly not much different from our summers in IL. We need to winter on a rock in the ocean, I guess. :) The locals where we are here in Key Largo call it "the rock" Jack L

RE: Camping World Financing

i preach against financing anything but a home but not too many listen. I'll second that and I am one of the ones who won't even finance a home any more. My wife and I built our last two from the ground up. A truly happy person is one who doesn't owe a penny to anyone jack L

RE: Florida for those sensitive to mold

We are snowbirders who leave our travel trailer in Key largo all summer long. We heard all the bad stuff about mold, leaving the trailer ventilated, etc. etc which all is false and wrong. Our neighbors who all have been here for many years clued us. 1. Don't waste your money on "Damp Rid". it won't help a bit. 2. the RV dealers carry a mold deterrent that you place (pouches) on the floor just before leaving. There are two different brands and one is more noxious then the other. Here is the kicker. You keep the RV as tight as possible with no ventilation. If you leave a vent open you will defeat how they work. When you come back in the fall, you air the RV out for several hours. It works and we along with all our neighbors don't ever get any mold or moldy smell. And zero bugs jack L

RE: Towing a pop-up vs. a self-contained

We went from a pop up to a nineteen foot TT and then from there to a 25 footer. The biggest difference for me was the worry about pulling in and out of gas stations We now have a 40 foot TT that is on a permanent side and we still have a 8 foot box PUP that we use to commute to the big one Jack L

RE: Toungue Jack Base?

I made a box out if scrap 3/4" plywood and 2"x 10"'s and painted it black. I put a new coat of paint on it every year. It not only looks good, but it is much more stable then just the tongue jack all the way to the ground. Jack L

Weight of the three steps of a travel trailer ?

Has anyone ever removed a set of three steel steps from their trailer? I am going to remove a set from my trailer and am wondering the approximate weight ? Is it doable by one man without blocking them up? Jack L

RE: Let's adjust pro football field....dimensions

I think the best thing to improve the game would be to get rid of the ads so the game would get over in the time it used to like the high school games do. Then I wouldn't have to sit with the mute button in my hand. Jack L

RE: Bahia Honda Status ?

Here's a pic from the road. I was going to stop in and take some pics, but when I got to the gate I saw that the concession and everything else is closed except the campsites, I didn't see any reason to pay $9.00 to get in the park. $9.00 for what LOL. No Drones, boat ramp, Concession, Oceanside, Alcohol, Fishing, Paddleboarding, or Kayaking. Sounds wonderful. I guess you don't own your own kayak. Bahia Honda is one of the best spots in the Keys for making it your base camp for kayaking. You can head south and take off from multiple places from Big Pine Key, Cudjoe Key, etc or head north back to Marathon and take off from Multiple places there too. Jack L

RE: Buying and installing a new 50 amp female receptacle

Thanks everyone. It appears that I could be wasting some big bucks if one that I got didn't match the one on the trailer, so I'll just live with the long one coiled up on the ground. Jack L

Buying and installing a new 50 amp female receptacle

I have a new 2018 Forest River trailer with a 50 amp twist lock cord and connectors. I have it in a permanent spot and never plan on moving it. The power post is only about fifteen feet from the trailers male twist lock plug, and I hate leaving all the cable that came with it coiled up on the ground. I have a short 50 amp cable with a male plug on one end and bare wires on the other and would like to install a female connector at the bare wire end. When I go on line I see female twist lock connectors ranging from $19 to $59 and I can't figure out why the big difference in price. Can any one who has ever installed one tell me if they are all compatible with any 50 amp twist lock male receptacle, or do I have to specifically match the one on my trailer, (speaking of the threads and hinged door configuration) ? Also, why the big cost difference ? Jack L

Social security question

We just checked on line and I received a decent increase, while my wife's stayed the exact same. We tried to find out why on line and got a reply that we would be contacted back by a person in "15 minutes". We never got a call back. Have any of you other folks checked and found that the spouse, (one or the other) didn't get a raise as we were told we would get.? Jack L

RE: State of campgrounds & resorts in Florida after huricanes

It is not back to normal in the Keys yet although they did an amazing job of hauling away all the trashed houses and their contents. Jack L

RE: Question about knee replacement for those that have one.

I had arthroscopic surgery many years ago on both knees, one at a time though. The past few years I’ve been having pain in my knees again, more so in the right knee. It’s painful when getting up from a chair. I have been considering the surgery, but I am still hesitant to do so. So my questions to all that have had it done is: 1) What level of pain made you decide to have it done? 2) What is the average timeframe of full recovery to get back to what you enjoy doing? I don't want to be laid up all during camping/fishing season. 1.When I just plain didn't want to walk any more. Had I known what a joy it was to have a new knee I would have done it several years before I did. 2.For me it was just a few weeks, but with that said, years ago I was a long distance runner and the doctor told me to never run again, or I would be right back for another replacement. Also to kneel with all my weight on that replaced knee took about a year or longer. Jack L

RE: Question about knee replacement for those that have one.

I had one of mine replaced at age 75, five years ago and here is my take and thoughts: If I had to do it again, I would have done it fifteen or twenty years before I did. That is how long I lived with the pain prior to it. Right now it is as if I was a kid again on it. First are you in good shape ? Are you over weight ? Are you sedentary? If you answered Yes, No, No, then I don't think you will have any problem. In my case, I raced canoes and kayaks and my goal was to get back into a canoe, (which is easier then a kayak) in a month. I was back in a kayak two weeks after the replacement The first couple of days are the hardest after the operation with the nights being the worst. The therapy is the key to a quick recovery. Do exactly as they tell you and don't baby yourself. My surgeon told me to do as I could tolerate, so I challenged myself. on day two I was walking a short distance with a cane. On day three I was walking a hundred yards just carrying a cane, but not using it. Every day I increased the distance I was walking. Lastly during therapy, it was the ones who could answer "yes, no, No"(above) who left each day with a smile on their face while the others were not happy campers. Good luck Jack L

RE: Drilling holes in the TT's frame question

I had some extra time today, so I drilled the first three holes on one side and installed the cable tie downs. I was quite surprised at how easy the drilling was. First of all, I found out that the "I" beams are not structural "I" beams but very flimsy. I don't know what the thickness of the web where I drilled is, but I know it is thin. I drilled a 1/4" pilot hole at a slow speed and then used the 1/2" to enlarge it and both my drill bits were old ones. I have three more to go on the other side, and it will be done. Jack l

RE: How much below MSRP should we be paying for a new TT?

30 percent below. That price is way out of line. Jack L
