Does anyone know if T.R.P.S. (terpentine replacement paint solvent) from truvalue hardware is the same thing as Turpenoid ? the can does not say if it is synthetic or not. Cant seem to find Turpenoid here in Charleston area

Not specifically answering the question, but have you checked Michael's, Hobby Lobby, AC Moore, or some other craft store chain? Or some other artists supply shop. You should find it in the artists' oil paint section, and always get the blue can, not green.
I would be doubtful of anything you get in a hardware store that is turpentine-related. If you do, experiment first! Turpenoid is NOT an industrial or contractor's type product....
Not in person only over phone

And you know how that can be with people who do not care if you come to their store or not so perhaps I need to do some leg work
Thanks for your reply
Try an art supply store

Hobby Lobby and Michael's both sell Turpenoid which is made by Weber. Buy the stuff in the blue and white label. They offer another Turpenoid in green/white packaging that is NOT suitable.
I have also used Mona Lisa synthetic thinner and I think also a Grumbacher synthetic turpenoid product. Actually even Wal Mart may sell one of these. Turpenoid is still my favorite.
You can use the Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon online too.

You can get it mailorder from Dick Blick art supply...they even have white spirits and other artist paint thinners. Not associated, just a happy customer.
