I Need Help Choosing A Maintenance Product For A New RV? Have a new 30′ Trav Trlr with a gelcoat exterior. I dont know zip about taking care of it, but wish to avoid UV damage to rubber seals etc and oxidation. Those nasty black spots that form on the plastic fittings. Is that mildew? I hear good things about “Island Girl” products except for their prices. Any of you with good advice? It will be greatly appreciated. Ed in South Bend, Indiana
Any product for a boat will work well on your gel coat finish. however remember you get what you pay for. as far as the rubber seals Armour all works quite well, before you store the trailer for the winter I recommend using Vaseline in the seals(prevents drying out and cracking)
Those nasty black spots or streaks can be removed with regular washings. I use a product called black streak remover that works quite well. Good luck with your new trailer!!

What Is World Class Maintenance? Please provide me with a definition or some thing like that
World class maintenance is in a broader sense is a combined effort of top management to bottom level staff by adopting the good maintenance practices as the case may be.
Preventive maintenance, predictive maintenance and corrective maintenance in true sense [ I mean real approach on day to day basis] is key to World class maintenance.
Purpose of World class maintenance is to ensure maximum equipment MTBF [mean time between failure] with proper planning , scheduling and execution of the all maintenance operation.
Result of adopting World class maintenance is reduction in down-time,reduction in in-process inventory and least deviation in final product parameter.
Read about “WCPM” [World class productivity management],TPM,TQM.
Best thing to adopt the principles of 5’S and Kaizen.
[5S is the name of a workplace organization methodology that uses a list of five Japanese words which, transliterated and translated into English, start with the letter S. This list is how it should be stored and most importantly how the new order will be maintained. This decision making process usually comes from a dialog about standardization which builds a clear understanding, between employees, of how work should be done. It also instills ownership of the process in each employee.]
Major results of Kaizen are Elimination of waste (muda) and incorporation of efficiency,tidiness
orderliness,cleanliness,standardization,sustaining the discipline.
Lot of work required to be done timely to achieve the objectives of world class maintenance.
One more point I want to add here to analysis of the maintenance activities using why-why analysis like tools and implementation of its end results so that the root cause of the problem can be sorted out and proper long lasting solution is achieved.
In short, objective of world class maintenance are:
Reduce Throughput time
Quicker turnaround of inventory
Quick response to customers.
google the term “world class maintenance” for what you wanted in detail.

Maintenance Of Cats…..? Hey :), what ingredients of a cats food are important for the maintenance of a cat?
There are two types of food available: The grocery store cheap cat kibble like, purina, friskies, that are mostly corn, meat by products, and fillers—The best foods are at your Local Petco, or Petsmart, I would recommend Wellness, as it has real meat, fish, vitamins, herbs, and natural ingredients–A large bag around 14LBS costs about $33,00, and it lasts for months—there are other brands Paul Newman’s,in the same venue, however they might be more expensive—-Cats need Taurine, protein, and healthy fiber—The wet can foods are mostly moisture, with low nutrition, and used for taste—Feeding your cat the high quality food will result in fewer Vet Bills, cleaner stools, and you cat will not have to eat as much to feel satisfied—Actually feeding your cat the cheaper foods will be more expensive, and the cats will feel like they need to eat more as it is not a very healthy option—Read the ingredients, the first ingredients should be meat or fish, with the grains last—the cheap foods first list corn, and animal by products—-I would recommend a big bowl of kibble, and fresh water available 24X7 for the cat to eat and nibble, as they eat many small meals—and feed them the wet food twice a day–a half can per morning, and dinner—never give your cat: chicken bones, chocolate–which is deadly, junk foods,—It is quite acceptable to give them a few bites of fish, or chicken–a healthy treat—If you are really on a budget, try Nutro Max or Iams—Make sure and get your cat spayed or fixed, the Rabies, and Distemper shots—and have a kitty litter box with clay, or corn clumping litter, that is cleaned daily–kitty will need a warm bed, and a few toys IE toy mice, and some small balls—and I recommend a scratching post–When in doubt ask your Vet–however most will recommend Science Diet—as they get a “kick back” however it is quite an acceptable -food—although my cats did not like it—Finally, cats do not need baths, as they groom themselves—Dogs however will require a bath PRN, as needed.You asked a very worthy question–have a great weekend
Curly Hair Maintenance ? I keep my ends clipped between 6 and 8 weeks regulary but every time I go it seems the length its grown she take off and I’m trying to grow my hair long she also says it’s very dry when she clips it I am a college student so expensive treatments are out but what are products for moisture and what do I do about my ends ?
“EVERYTIME it grows she take off and I’m trying to grow my hair long . . .”
Stop visiting HER.
Clip your own split ends, if you have them. Spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day, so you can easily spot them, using a 2″ scissors, trim each strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over, then 2x a year get a good cut. I sometimes cut my hair each month 1″ off, it just keeps growing & growing.
Washing less often, builds the natural oil your hair needs, to get them smoother, shinier, silkier, softer. Man-made products are just temporary, until you wash them again, and at the same time washing off the natural oil your hair NEEDS. Hair product just absorbs on your hair if they’re dry, like a sponge.
The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’.
HAND LOTION: Matthew Morrison keeps his hair soft and smooth by using body lotion instead of styling products.
Matthew Morrison uses body lotion in his hair. The 32-year-old actor- best known for playing teacher Will Schuester in musical TV drama ‘Glee’ – claims his biggest beauty secret is his unusual choice of product for his locks, which he says makes them smooth and soft. He said: “My hair is very soft, right? It’s because I put Lubriderm in it. It’s just body lotion. “I used to use gel and products, but my hair got kind of hard. Then, one day I ran out of whatever I was using and that was the only thing there, this lotion. It ended up being the best my hair ever looked.” Matthew’s hair is often the subject of jokes in ‘Glee’ but he insists he doesn’t mind because everyone is mocked on the show.
My dh have used that since Aug. 2011. His hair is softer, smoother, silkier & not frizzy or pouffy.
Your hair is envy from us stick straight haired girls! If you know how to care for your hair type, you won’t have this problem. Melina Kanakaredes is an example who has hair like yours and she’s got beautiful wavy hair.
Shampoo. Condition. Towel dry, scrunch with gel like Samy, blow-dry using a diffuser briefly, tousle the hair, finger comb, shake your head & you’re good to go. If you don’t have a diffuser, use a blow heat dryer on low for 5 mins.
When you wake up, instead of shampooing again, keep a bottled water filled with water/conditioner and spray on your hair. Scrunch, finger comb and you’re good to go! Google Haley Rinehart – American Idol she’s got long beautiful curly hair! When my hair was permed in the 80’s, my hair looked like hers. Look @ my hair now.
Causes for dry hair:
The sun is very damaging & drying, even get sunburn, so does the hair.
Washing in hot water, if it’s bad for baby skin, so does the hair.
Too many shampoos per week, 2x is enough.
Alcohol products, hair sprays or gel containing alcohol, very drying.
Chemicals, perming, hair dyeing, chlorine.
Hair straightening tools or curling tools, even with hair protectant sprays or lotions, does not protect hair 100%.
Hair dryer, I use it but only for 5 mins per wash, per week, longer than, too drying.
Sun-exposure can also cause dryness of the skin, while chlorine and other chemicals in the water deplete moisture. Chlorine is also known to cause rashes, while one can pick up other skin conditions like a fungus infection from swimming pools.
Chlorine strips the hair of oils and makes it dry, tangled, matted and rough. Chlorine also affects the cuticles and makes the hair dull. The cuticle is the outermost layer of the hair and contributes to its shine. Repeated exposure to chlorine can make the hair brittle, leading to problems like split-ends and hair breakage.
