RE: Rubber roof question

Thanks all ! I kind of figured they are ok to leave as is, but it is nice to hear the same from others. To the poster wanting a picture of my ripples: Take a cloth napkin and lay it on a table. Then pinch the middle of it. What you see is a ripple I am not trying to be sarcastic, but this saves me from climbing up on the roof and taking a pcture Jack L

RE: Rubber roof question

This is found every now an then and is nothing to worry about as long as they don't keep growing. There are no cracks Jack L

Changing home residence question

We snow bird to Florida every winter and now live there just as much as we do in NC and are thinking of changing our home residence to there. We already have a mail address there. Can anyone who has done this tell me the various changes that have to made and the order to make them? Also, are there any pitfalls that we should know about? Jack L

RE: Sea Glass

One of our many favorite things to do in the Florida Keys. My wife and I are kayakers, and we love to pull up on a remote beach where no one has been to for a long time and beachcomb. We find all kinds of sea beans from the tropics as well as other interesting flotsam. Our best finds to date have been two old bottles from the 1800's that were evidently discarded from some old vessel. One on the Atlantic side, and the other on the Gulf side. Another popular item are those plastic chairs that sell for about $20. They evidently blow off cruise ships and other power boats. There is usually one or two in the mangroves of every off shore Key. Each year I usually tie a couple on the back of my kayak and bring them home. I print the name of the Key and the coordinates on the underside of them and my wife spray paints each of them a different color. Right now we have 15 of them around the fire ring in our front yard in the NC mountains by our trout stream. When the neighbors or the grandkids come for a cookout, the chairs get turned over so they can find where our latest finds came from Jack L

Rubber roof question

I just gave my 25 foot travel trailer it's annual roof cleaning and preservative treatment and while I was doing it I noticed in two places right next to each other there was a ripple in the rubber. Each was less than 10 inches long, about a half inch wide and about a half inch high. Is this something that I should be concerned about or just keep an eye on it? The trailer is eight years old, and other then that the roof is in good shape Jack L

RE: Confusing

Why would you put the hat in the box, I put the hat on my head and the box in the recycling bin after eating the pizza, that makes geometrical and mathematical more sense to me anyway! navegator Another problem: Now you need two recycling bins. One for the round boxes and one for the square boxes. unless you are putting them in one big dumpster, in which case it will handle both. Jack L

RE: Confusing

So what came first? The round pizza or the square box? jack L

RE: Roof on a new TT

I am on my second trailer now. I have had each one for seven years. Once a year I wash the roof and inspect it and then put a conditioner on it. I have never had a problem with any leaks jack L

RE: Question on a 8GB tablet for weather forcasts

I bought an RCA 8GB tablet several years ago to experiment with Android. I think I paid $39.95 for it. It's very slow, has short battery life, but I was able to learn a little bit about Android when using it. I don't use it now other than to turn it on occasionally to check for system updates. Do you think it would be any good for what I want? Which is just getting weather reports? And on that battery: Do you mean the battery has to be replaced often? Or it just has to be charged often?

RE: inspection

I will be selling my 25 footer in October. Any buyer is welcome to have it inspected, but there is no way I will pay to have it inspected. Jack L

Question on a 8GB tablet for weather forcasts

I just saw a RCA tablet-QUAD Core 8GB advertised for $38. I would like to get a tablet and set it up just for various weather forecasts for cities and areas around the country. I don't want it for anything else. I don't know anything about computers and was wondering if this one would be good for what I want We have wifi in the house and also on the road in our trailer Jack L

Hip replacement question

For those of you that have a hip replacement; how long does it take to get back to normal ? Jack L

RE: Total knee replacement issues.

We are full timers and had a total knee replacement in January 2016. What everyone is not telling you is that it is a full year of recovery. After 7 months, my knee is still stiff, numb (may be permanent) and sore and this is completely normal. I have resumed my normal activities but my knee is still swelled up 3 inches bigger than the other knee. I did not have long term bone on bone arthritis (Ihad avascular necrosis which is bone death) so I did not experience the relief that many with arthritis experience after a replacement. It is serious surgery and you will be shocked on how long the recovery is. However, I had no issues at all living in the RV while recovering after surgery. Not with me ! Jack L

RE: Total knee replacement issues.

I had a total knee replacement five years ago at age 75. I was dreading it and waited 15 years before finally relenting and getting it done. My wife and I are canoe and kayak paddlers and even race them, and my goal was to be back in the canoe, (which is easier to get into then a kayak)within a month after having it done. Believe it or not I was in the kayak 10 days later going right from therapy to the lake. The day after I cam home from the hospital I walked around the house with a walker The next day I walked about a hundred yards in the road, carrying the walker, (not using it). Three days later, I walked a few hundred yards just carrying a cane. For me the whole thing was a piece of cake. I did my therapy like clockwork and even challenged it. The first day home I took one of the pain pills and it made me so dizzy, I just took ibupropene from then on. There was some pain in the middle of the night if I rolled over in my sleep. The doctor said that I had such an easy time was because I was the perfect weight for my eight and frame. My advice is: 1. If you are over weight, lose weight and get down to what your proper weight should be. 2. Do your therapy, exactly as it is prescribed and even more if you can tolerate it (that is what he said, and that is what I did It was very obvious to me that in the therapy sessions the ones that were hurting the most were all the overweight ones Finally: We have never lost a days camping because of it, and I now can hike mountains and do stuff that kept me in pain for 15 years prior to the operation. If I can answer any questions, just fire away ! Good luck, Jack L

RE: Paranoid thats me

Sounds like me ! The year before last I had two trailer blow outs on tires that appeared to look perfect. I bought four new ones and last year I was doing the exact same as you. I will be making one more snow bird trip this fall, and then my worries will be over. I'll be putting a 37 foot trailer into a permanent lot that we bought, and all I will have to worry about is the truck on our trips. Jack L

RE: Winterize City Water Line?

Well this is one I hadn't considered, but now that I think about it, Between where you connect the hose, and the check valve, how do you get antifreeze in there, or blow out the water that is sure to be there? Would it be better to get an air line adapter, plug it in there, and blow the system out from there? It is simple. You disconnect the inlet to the water pump. Take a look at the size of the tube you disconnected and go to Lowes and pick up a piece of clear plastic tubing the same size. Get about two feet of it. Connect one end to the inlet of the water pump, and put the other end in a gallon of the pink stuff. Make sure you water heater is by passed. Shut off all your faucets. Turn the switch on for your water pump The pump will suck up the pink stuff and pump it through your system One by one open each faucet and as soon as pink comes out close that faucet. The pump will suck up the pink stuff and pump it through your system When you have them all done flush your toilet a few times to get the pink stuff through it. Make sure to do your shower too When I am done, I usually put a couple of spoon fulls in the city water inlet, or otherwise the spring in the check valve will freeze and break Jack L

RE: Upgraded

I'm curious; How long is it and did you have any problem towing it? I have the same truck as you and in October I'll be picking up a new 37 foot long trailer. I only planning on hauling it once for just a few miles, from the dealer to a permanent site. I have been hauling a 25 footer. Jack L

RE: Winterize City Water Line?

Yes as the above post says, all your water lines need to be winterized. Make sure you bypass the water heater and empty it. I have a 25 foot trailer, and it only takes me ten minutes and a tad over a gallon of pink stuff to do it. Total cost is $5.00. Make sure to pump it through the shower and flush it through the toilet too Jack L
