RE: Lowe's refund timeframe using a debit card-head's up

I'm Jack...:B I shop at Home Depot or Diamond. Will the real Jack please stand up! Hey that is me and I am not mountain Jack even though I am at Elevation 3500 feet. I love Lowes right from when they first opened in NC. I used to have a contractors discount when I built my first house. Now I get the veterans 10% discount, and they don't balk like Home Depot does Jack L

RE: Wood putty to hold awning screws in rotten wood ?

Use two part epoxy and if you have access to sawdust mix some in with it. West Systems Epoxy describes it in detail. If it was me, I would just buy the epoxy at your local hardware for about $5.00 It comes in a package with two dispensers that dispense the proper amount of hardener and resin, and then I would mix sawdust in with it. Make it thick enough so it wont run out. Jack L

RE: Lowe's refund timeframe using a debit card-head's up

I am surprised that you are complaining! They offered you cash immediately Not complaining at all, just commenting in this day an age it's absolutely nuts that it takes that long. I don't like having that much cash in my pocket. Wound up running a bunch of other errands and was able to pay cash as a result, but prefer debit as a better means of tracking overall expenses. "15 days is an absolutely absurd amount of time to wait since everything is done electronically" Sounded like a complaint to me. If not please accept my apology Jack L

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

I don't know who is wrong and who is right, but I am reading this and chuckling to myself. All this time I thought it was us non dog owners who got upset with you dog owners letting your dogs do their business in front of our camp sites. I never realized that you doggie owners get ticked off at each other. Kind of just made my day !!! Jack L

RE: Water Hose Storage

After fighting with 50 footers for many years, I finally smartened up a few years ago and now keep four 25 footers. I coil them up separately and screw the male end to the female end. Then I use short elastic bungees, (the type with a small plastic ball on each end) to keep them securely coiled (three per hose coil). then I just store them in one of my outside under floor compartments.

RE: Got rid of the trailer, went back to tent camping

We do both. We winter in the Florida Keys and south Florida with our travel trailer, but while there we do kayaking camping in the Everglades National Park and the Ten Thousand Islands. It is absolutely awesome do get into the wilderness or on a remote beach where there are no barking dogs, loud music, roaring diesel engines - Just pure quiet, miles and miles from civilation. We have camped on tropical island beaches that are an endless shell hunters dream. Where you can fill a boat load of beautiful shells in just a few hundred feet. It is nice to have both worlds Jack L

RE: Disappointed with Thetford Toilet

I am curious: did you have a pressure reducing unit on your incoming fresh water line? We are on our second trailer with a Thetford toilet and never have had a problem jack L

RE: Washing the travel Trailer

My wife and I wash ours once a year by ourselves. We do the roof first, and then the rest of it. The following day, we use conditioner on the rubber roof, and then I wax it Two years ago, we made a trailer barn for it, and it is amazing how clean it stays out of the weather. Jack L

RE: Need recommendations: Drinking/RV/Boating Hose

"What do YOU recommend or what has worked for YOU? " A hose is a hose is a hose! I'm 78 and still alive. I grew up drinking out of a green garden hose, and since RV'ng I have used every color there is. My criteria is get the lightest weight one, and one that will coil easily and I could care less about the color Jack L

RE: Cool weather

I had to light a fire in our wood burning stove yesterday morning to take the chill off the house. We are here in God's Land at elevation 3500 feet in the NC mountains where we overlook a cascading trout stream in our front yard. Jack L

RE: Is a 50amp service worth the upgrade?

You didn't say what size trailer. If your new trailer is large and has two AC units, then by all means you will want/need 50 amps. If the trailer is smaller and has only one AC unit, you won't need 50 amps and if you are paying a lot more for it, I wouldn't waste my money on it. We have a 25 foot trailer with one AC unit, and with the AC running, we can use the microwave without any problems. We have never tripped the main breaker. If you do find a trailer with 50 amps, and the cost for it is not much more then 30 amps. then by all means get it For what it is worth I am a retired electrical engineer. Jack L

RE: Senior Moments

My wife and I are snow birds and a few years ago when we were leaving for our four months in Florida, I moved our other vehicle out of the way so I could get the trailer out. Once we had the rig out in the street. I put the stay at home vehicle back in the driveway right near the street. Four months later when we returned I looked all over for the keys for the stay at home vehicle and just when I was ready to give up, I happened to look in it, and there they were right in the ignition with the car completely unlocked. Some crook missed a golden opportunity! Jack L

RE: No Sleep

I could tell you a hundred incidents that happened in a big old house that we lived in for three years, but I would be typing for several hours. Even the dog wouldn't go into one particular walk in storage area Jack L

RE: Question on bent scissor jacks

Sounds like an El cheapo stabilizer to me if you just had them tight to the ground and that happened. Jack L

RE: Full hookup questions

I was in the Navy and don't have a clue what a Navy shower is ! May be because I was stationed at an Naval Air station I can only guess it is what I have done all my life 1. Shower for a few seconds to get wet. 2. Shut the water off and soap up 3. lather 4. turn the water on and rinse off I do that at home as well as in the trailer. I leave the gray tank valve open except for the day before leaving the camp ground, so there is a good supply of gray water to rinse the sewer hose out after dumping the black. Jack L
