At least I am embarrassed for Rowe and their die hard customers.

So the “new” award winning Rowe changers are made by Triad DesignWebsite I never thought of this…. Basically because the chargers were not impressive using off the shelf parts.  I just expected the changer to be built by Rowe?  Why not?  I was kind of surprised to be honest. The other Rowe chargers used Rowe parts? Good or Bad! 🙂

Rowe wins an Innovative Award and not MEI? 20130803

But you would think a company like Rowe would force a non-compete or no talkee contract with a company like Triad Design.  (Also all the companies do it (I assume) so I am not just singling out Rowe.  Jim Coleman for sure…. and I know at least one product from Hamilton (probably others or all of them?) that had another companies name on the circuit boards.)  To me it just seems like a bad business plan…. Why not employee your own development team (2 guys probably, in this case with Triad which probably only has/had 6 employees supposally).  If Rowe honestly hired 2 employees then they could constantly have new updated products?  What good it that?  Give honest tech support from techs that worked on the actual product design?  Not needed at all?  Keep an updated product line on the market?  Why not lag decades behind it is the norm?  Have more technologically advanced products on the market than any other company?  What makes you so smart…. smarty pants? 

Honestly what makes any of the major car wash companies in a good competitive position?  Honestly the only reason any major company is in any position is because of a repetition. What reputation? Old broken products that need to be replaced?  Car wash owners as a whole do not know anything.  Sorry!  🙂  I talking to a operator and I wanted him to try a Dixmor timer in his Coleman bay.  He swore I was trying to blow up his bay!  Well the Dixmor timer was going to short or everything.  Bottom like there is no amount of marketing that Dixmor can do to undo uneducated owners.  Plus if owers love Coleman timers…. Well I believe Coleman might have even switched by now?  Bad example…. But hopefully you get my point.  LOL 🙂  Customers are trusting companies and techs that never worked at the company in the first place.  Just finding compatible parts from the old Manufactures…. Lets be honest no one wants a Timemaster Bay Timer (Well you should not want one!  🙂 )  All these companies need new leadership…. All need better goals…. Working off your old book of business is okay until some other major company gets real leadership and kills all the competition.

Another thing to check out…. Triad website…. I honestly would not purchase anything from them after looking at their website. (Rowe’s website is really not that much better.  Well unless there product is really cheap.  Support might be important on a no name changer?  Not sure?)  Triad’s website looks like something I would not even have done 20 years ago.

3 website hints PLEASE NEVER DO if you take your company seriously.
1) NEVER use a free hosting service…. It is really never okay to have the words “Free Hosting” (GoDaddy or whatever) on any page.
2) NEVER use an email address like @aol or @verizon etc. so your customers can see how low budget your company is.
3) I believe you should have a PO Box and never use your address. But you can use your business address. But NEVER use your home address for lots of reasons! (Also on business cards!)
4) BONUS people argue using an 800 number. But the other points look a lot worse. 800 numbers are cheap…. So whatever people expect I guess?

Interesting search when you search this company (I have no clue about any links or information on this page) Triad, Massachusetts appears to have filed Chapter 11 in Texas where Rowe is located? Weird?

UPDATE Quick disconnect fittings


It looks like I installed my quick disconnect fittings in 2007? LINK Today I had a problem with the female stainless side (I assume SS the outside is not rusted.)…. The internals of the fitting is messed up. It was also connected to a brass male fitting which was rusted.  I am not sure if SS on brass makes a difference?

I did remove all the fittings except for this one the other day. 🙂 So only one so far is pretty good.

When I grow up I am wiping boogers on my kids new car!


I am making a list….
1) Wipe boogers on my kid’s windows and seats in their car.
2) Constantly wipe my dirty hands all over the inside of their front window…. Also touch the rear view mirror.
3) New entry to my list…. Plant winter seed at their house. How many times will my kids ask about this person’s yard? (Above picture.)

Is there always someone in every neighborhood that wants to mow lawn all year? I personally want to concrete my yard…. I will never understand?

Nothing says America like…. Monster Jam!


Monster Jams has to be the most American…. American event ever…. Well in America and the World!

It has every aspect the world secretly loves but claims they hate about the United States all in one event. I even purchased $15 cotton candy! LOL 🙂

I enjoyed this event because only one kid wanted a souvenir! LOL 🙂

Also thanks to Greg for the adult ear protection. I am not sure it was a necessity though? I had them on ever since he let me borrow them…. These are great living with kids and I guess watching large monster trucks. 🙂

The Electric Company and not that bad PBS show! LOL :)

So the Power Company is suppose to charge you for a new meter if it gets stolen? WHAT IS THIS BS?! So you have to use their crappy worthless locks, expose your wires you paid for so a retard with a death wish can steal them and it is your fault! Seriously? No really is this what all power companies do? This is just from a local city that resells power…. maybe it is different rules at other companies? Either way I was told I could not even put a box around the meter. Sometimes it seems everyone is against small businesses. Or against small businesses in the hood. But again…. Knowing the correct people in the hood might help get services differently….

Well I did a project with my son the other day…..

Nothing is more fun then working on a project with your son.  (I might have read that I will believe this when I get older someday?  LOL 🙂 )  My son loves to look and touch tools or look at car wash part bins all day! He wants to try and touch everything…. Also he wants to know what everything does. (He is probably going to be some sort of machinist or mechanic…. Or a mensa…. Either one!  🙂   (His Grandmother is a mensa.  (not myside  🙂 )

He also picked some car wash parts he wanted to keep. He selected a high security Abus shackle lock and a round pressure gauge. After explaining briefly that the lock can not lock every door or item in our house.  🙂  I explained what the pressure gauge did. Then he explained to me what the pressure gauge did and he will be using it next time he goes into the “deep sea to check the pressure of the sea”.  🙂 I can only assume it is a Wild Wratts reference? (kids TV show.)

 

It is scary how well kids listen when they want to.  🙂

Well I figured out how to get on TV!

The plan is to build a rocket and claim once and for all the Earth is FLAT! Everyone knows Christopher Columbus actually flipped on the other side of the Earth! Or was that Magellan? BTW Did you know Magellan actually cheated back in the day? Magellan use to use a Magellan GPS! (Like this one Magellan GPS but not in color obviously! 🙂 ) No JOKE they did not teach this in school! It is a huge round-Earth Freemasons conspiracy! MAN…. Dude…. Cat…. (Insert old person cool thing to say here. 🙂 ) Also Spain launched the first GPS satellites in 15 something. (Well maybe they teach this in school now? LOL 🙂 ) Well no needs to fact check me news media mensa’s or anyone that wants to put me on TV…. Because I am a limo driver and super smart like a mensa you know…. or I just want you to help me make some money.

Seriously…. Besides just making everyone feel like a mensa why was this reported on? To prove public education is bad? LOL 🙂 Or to seriously help this guy make money? Makes you wonder how you can get free advertising doesn’t it? 🙂

But what was totally shocking was…. The information about Magellan obviously! I never knew he used a GPS on his ships! 🙂 This article also proves they should work more on history in school! Elon Musk really? Musky did not invent anything new? I am 100% positive that stuff went down before battery car guy was born. But it is okay to hate him…. He acts weird watch anything he talks in.
