  1. Yes! Roger, thank you for that idea! I had called my insurance agent once last year to inquire about options, but never did hear back from them. Robcat, thanks for the reply, I am looking for honest opinions here, if I am being unreasonable I want to know that too. I guess my frustration stems mostly from the fact that we don't let anyone in the yard/lot to walk through the display. There is a fence around part of it, and the rest is all roped off with lights, no walk through stuff. No one should be getting hurt/ suing because no one should be on the property in the first place. :/
  2. Keeping this as short as possible: Our yard is very deep and skinny. Our house sits 15 feet from the sidewalk, no real front yard. Our side yard has a privacy fence that starts at the back of our house. We have a large pine tree in the side yard as well. So basically not much usable/visible yard. When I started expanding the display years ago I struck a deal with the neighbor who owns the empty lot next door (and she lives 1000 miles away). I helped keep it clean, stop illegal dumping, and they let me use the lot for our display, as long as I clear it by spring. Last year she suddenly star
  3. I see that your profile says you are in Michigan. I am in Indiana, and I want several of these molds. Where is this store located?
  4. Hope it's okay to post this here, it's been a while since I posted in this forum lol. I have an extra Tigger and a Pooh (Santa's Best) that I would like to trade/ partial trade+cash. I am looking for SB Goofy and Taz, Also small goofy and small snoopy. II would be interested in a full size church and tender cars for the santa train. I have lots of duplicates so, if anyone is looking for anything in particular just ask.
  5. Thanks I think I will take your advice and not canibalize the motor. Anyone interested in buying it just PM me and offer.
  6. I have been through the ringer with my Haunted House that was gifted to me this year. I would barely inflate much less stand. One motor was bad and we replaced it with a bouncy house motor. Still would not stand. Even with a LEAF BLOWER inserted it would not stand. I tried tent silicone spray and it did not work. I also had a sagging arch that would not stand anymore so I decided to try something more drastic. Krylon triple thick clear glaze spray: http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_021V002612114000P?vName=For%20the%20Home&cName=Painting&sName=Paint&sid=KDx20070926x000
  7. I picked this up at a garage sale this summer and I was looking for more info on him. I don't do Christmas inflatables so I will not be using this, I may sell it if anyone is interested. If not I will be canibalizing the fan motor to use in my Haunted House. I don't want to destroy something in the off chance it's desirable or hard to find though. Thanks everyone!
  8. I have found something that works somewhat I am going to make a new thread about it.
  9. Anyone have any to sell or know where I could buy one? I am looking for a nice large one. Thanks!
  10. Maybe this? http://www.google.com/products/catalog?num=10&hl=en&q=clear+spray+on+tape&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=7626913616270011112&ei=ZaunTMSSJIKcnwfspOyfDA&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CCkQ8wIwAw#
  11. UPDATE: I sprayed two whole cans of the silicone tent weatherproofing spray all over it and it seemed to help a LITTLE. But not much. It rained this morning and it DARN NEAR stood up on its own! Lol. I think the problem is obviously in the amount of air going in vs the amount bleeding out through the fabric. I am thinking of adding a motor to it but I don't have any big extra ones. I wonder if anyone knows of anything else I could spray on it? Clear coat spray paint? Maybe some clear peel and stick coating of some kind that could reduce air flow through the fabric....? Used sparin
  12. Yeah me and two other people checked this thing inside and out and even turned it over upside down. There are a handful of pinholes here and there but nothing big. All the zippers are closed. I really hope this tent spray does the trick. I will let everyone know how it turns out. If it works good I might spray all of our inflatables with it.
  13. It's SOOOOOO saggy I keep thinking there must be a gapping hole somewhere.... but I can't find anything else wrong with it! I am going to go get some spray tonight and give that a try.
  14. I was given the huge Haunted House inflatable by my neighbor because it quit working after about 3 years. 2 of the three motors are working. The third is dead, so he gave me an old HUGE motor from one of those inflatable waterslides. I disconected the broken motor and put in the bigger one thinking it would fix the problem. No go. It inflates pretty evenly, but the thing won't stand up. I found a couple holes and patched them, and broken zipper which I fixed, but it's just sagging terribly and even if I try to support it from underneath it won't stand. Any ideas? Does the fabric start to leak
  15. I was thinking about just keeping it inflated all the time.... the question is what to do about high winds? We had some bad gusts the other day and it ripped a couple of the anchors on the feet. I have tethered it now but it will not stand on it's own without some help. I am afraid those tethers will rip out in a storm if it's on all the time. I don't want to go up on the roof and fix it a bunch either lol. Seems like I will just have to live with that chance. I can't tell you how worth it all the trouble is. It looks amazing at night with the moon behind it. I will try to get some pics.
