RE: Fl Keys Screwworm Status ??

Not sure what you want to know, but they mainly are in the Key deer population even though a few domestic dogs and cats have had the problem. They have a animal check point when you leave the Keys and want an one with an animal to stop and have it checked. The latest report is that very few does have been infected and it is just bucks and that is because the wounds they get in the rut fights. (the flies lay the eggs in those wounds and the eggs hatch into the screw worms) It used to be against the law to feed the little deer, but now they are issuing some of the residents medicine that they mix with food and are hand feeding them. As of now they estimate that 10 percent of the herd has been killed, but they think they are winning the war using sterile male flies to breed with the females, etc jack L

RE: Coffee

I love my one cup of fresh brood coffee every morning. I grind it fresh like talcum powder at home with my own little electric grinder from Eight O'clock "Columbian Peaks". I use five teaspoons of beans for two cups, (one for my wife), and that gives us a nice bold cup. Off and on I have tried a few other brands, but nothing tastes as good to me. Jack L

RE: 110v Water Heater Switch?

What brand is it ? We have a brand new trailer with a Suburban and the other day when I went to use it for the first time, I had trouble finding the switch. It is a very small switch in the outside water heater compartment on the lower left side almost hidden under some other equipment I almost gave up looking for it until I got out the manual and found a diagram of where it is. jack L

RE: RVers who buy up campsites

As a long time camper, there is nothing wrong at all with what they did.(unless the park has a rule against it) We have met people that have had to leave their site in an emergency or for some other reason and hope to return, but don't know. Not only that, but you or any one else can rent a site for as long as the park permits, and if the person wants to assure the site for the weekend, and has the extra bucks to do it, I say good luck to them.

We sold our trailer yesterday

I advertised it on Craigs list and the second person that replied, (a family with three girls) bought it and paid with cash. In the ad, even though I knew it was in "excellent" condition, I said "good" condition. In my estimation even though it was nine years old it is built much better then the new trailers and I not only had worked all the bugs out, but made many good additions such as shelves in every wardrobe, and new cabinets wherever there was empty space, etc I delivered it to them yesterday and since they are newbies, I typed up a tutorial and spent two hours going over everything with them. I am a happy camper to not have to ever tow a travel trailer again, and knowing that I just made a young family "happy campers" My wife and I will remain happy campers forever, since we just bought a forty footer that will remain in place at our permanent snow bird site where we will commute to with just our four wheel vehicle jack L

RE: Questions about TT when not in use

I have fifteen acres and keep mine under a trailer pole barn that my wife and I built just for it. I have a gravel floor, but keep the tires on plywood. I used treated 6" x 6"'s for the poles and saw mill lumber for the rest, with shingles over OSB for the roof I left an opening for where the trailer door is and framed out an opening for around the dinette picture window to allow more light in during the day, since we have no electricity. We cut all the lumber by hand except for that which I could cut in my shop. We built it five years ago and it is amazing how clean the trailer roof along with the rest of it has stayed. I think it is well worth it Jack L

RE: Is it just my imagination or what?

We have been snow birding for the past fifteen years, but finally this year we won't be moving from state park to state park every two weeks. Last year we bought our very own RV site,on Key Largo and this year we sold our 25 footer and bought a new 40 footer which I hauled in myself. We came in the first of October and will stay until April. We have been watching the rest of the snow birders trickling in and I imagine in another month there will not even be a rental space available. Needless to say we are happy campers! Jack L

RE: Question for you HVAC guys to talk about around the fire

Ok; I'll try again: In the whole world, there are only two choices for me: 1. A roof turbine 2. a wall vent Nothing else ! Which would give the best ventilation: Number 1, or number 2. ? You are automatically disqualified from my fire side chat and banished to the old ladies sewing circle if you want to tell me what you would use instead or what color the sky is, and then I am going to tell your fifth grade English teacher that she did a poor job on teaching you your comprehension of a simple question that required only one choice of two that were given. jack L

RE: Somebody educate me on "Nitrogen" in the tires ?

So , now I am educated and wondering why they spent the extra bucks to put Nitrogen in the tires but spent so much less on quality workmanship on the interior of the trailer ? Thanks every one for the various replies Jack L

RE: Question for you HVAC guys to talk about around the fire

You need an inlet and an outlet. Like a pipe, if one end is closed you will get no flow. There will be plenty of places for air movement. This is not a sealed/insulted house. It will be an el cheapo shed with cracks here and there, including around the door and at the roof rafters. jack L

RE: Question for you HVAC guys to talk about around the fire

I guess my question was not clear ! I am not looking for suggestions or advice ! I will be installing either one wall vent or one roof wind turbine, and I am asking which will give the better ventilation. jack L ------------------------ Members are only trying to be helpful..... (Mod)

RE: Everglades National Park

It happens at Flamingo, Nine mile Pond and at the Anhinga Trail, but at all three of them there are big bins with tarps and bungee cords for you to use free of charge. Make sure to use them or you will be sorry. We love the Everglades and have paddled and explored every part of them including the Wilderness Water way many times jack L

Question for you HVAC guys to talk about around the fire

I am building an 8'x 10' shed on our permanent RV site. It will be completely enclosed with no windows and a solid door. This is in the Florida Keys. As I walk around the RV park I see some with roof wind turbines and some with wall vents. My gables will not have enough pitch for a gable vent(s) So the question is : which will give better ventilation. A wind turbine mounted on the roof, or a wall vent ? jack L

Somebody educate me on "Nitrogen" in the tires ?

We just bought a new Travel trailer and I never noticed at the dealers, but saw a sticker on the side today that said there is nitrogen in the tires. Someone please explain what this is for. Jack L

RE: Trailer sticks to towing ball

It is simple. Prior to raising the tongue jack remove the pin that holds the hitch to the receiver. Then when you raise the tongue jack, this allows the hitch to move a tad and relieves the holding pressure, and the coupling will raise right off the ball as you crank it up I learned this method many years ago and use it every time I unhitch Jack L

What is the best shower stall caulk ?

We have a new trailer with a corner shower with the round glass doors. They sit in an aluminum channel that sits on the plastic floor pan. Evidently there was no sealant or caulk installed between the aluminum channel and the floor pan and there is water leaking (very bad) under them and coming out on the floor. In the past in our various houses I have used regular white bath tub caulk. Would this be the best to use or are there newer and better caulks? Please don't say take it back to the dealer. I don't want to hear that! jack L
