Rebuild

Good Evening, Long day today, 6 AM to 9 PM and didn't get paid overtime need to talk to the boss, oh wait there is no boss. Well we got the AC on the roof and bolted it down, hooked it up and its running as I type this. Now I can figure where the solar panels can go, as this is the last thing to go on the roof other then the panels.

Frank is hinting this will be soon. I agree.

Sooooo, how are you going to do that test drive??

Which comes first , a run to the Cat scales or the DMV to register?

OR do you have a friend at DOT that can bring some portables over !

Good Morning, Popeye, I don't have any friends at DOT, (does DOT have friends?) The trailer is already reg. I used the old reg. but after I do a couple shake down test drives, I will go to a Cat scale and do all the weights then I can adjust the registration accordingly. I have a Pilot truck stop not too far from here, (according to MyDat Trucker App its 17 mi.) they have a Cat Scale. Well gotta go help a buddy, we flipped his axles now we need to put his side car on his bike and install the wheel chock in his TH. Have a great day all.

Looking good Terry, finish up the bath, do the bedroom, and the ceiling and you are about ready to go, solar panels can be added anytime, lol.

Hi Frank, Yup, that's the plan, the solar is something I want to do its not necessary, other than running the wiring before the interior panels go up.

I understand about the solar being a want to do, rather than a need to do, and I knew that you would have planned for the wiring before putting up the paneling.

Good Morning Everyone;
Nice progress. Terry if you want to go to the boss and ask for a raise we will support you. I suggest that you ask for you salary to be doubled with overtime at a minimum of double time for the first two hours and triple time for anything longer. Oh and benefits like an hour for lunch (paid of course) and snacks.

Quick calculation shows not much difference. 8hrs x $0.00 (current wage grid) x 2 (double the wage) + 2 hrs x ((2 x ($0.00 double wage grid) x (2 double overtime rate)) + ((5 x ($0.00 double wage grid) x (3 triple overtime rate)) = $0.00.

However you can tell everyone that the boss is very generous and agreed to all of your demands. It appears that as a wage negotiator I am not very good at providing advice. I used the same negotiating terms and my boss quickly agreed. It is only now that I wrote it down that I realize that nothing has changed.

All I can say is your boss it getting a very good deal and must appreciate you greatly. Just make sure the boss is not too demanding and lets you go for a motorcycle ride when the weather is nice.

Once the wiring is done and the ceiling panels are in the progress will be at a point where it will take very little work to take it out for a test run/camp. IMO a short camp out early in the finishing will enable you to make any adjustments without doing too much removal. I cannot think of anything that could be a problem but there always seems to be something will appear that you will want to make a minor change to.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Terry
I just added the DOT as a joke !
Just what you need , a ticket in your own backyard !!!

Adding the solar stuff is an easy afternoon job , especially where you have ladders !

Once you get out in the wild country , you'll find you spend LOTS of time outside listening to critters and enjoying another sunset (after getting your head in the wind for the day).
There won't be enough time to go everywhere you'll want to. Just take it slow and explore each before gettin' hitch itch. You WON'T want to stop.
Maybe it's best to get most of the rig finished before ya leave.

Gordon ,,,,,nice , that's called "retirement"!

Terry,


Actually if you think what it would have cost you per hour (each hour you have spent building it) you can figure out what you save just by multiplying it by whatever they would charge you to build it.


Say you have 500 hrs into it and the place would charge OHHHHH say $45 an hour, you just saved yourself $22,500. Not bad Terry, not bad at all.

Good point Lynne. It would be interesting to see how many hours Terry actually did put into the construction.

Terry the bike and sidecar fit the space very nicely. I really like the cushion that Eleanor made. It is obvious the two of you complement each other.
