Sort of standard in my past. We would have a tailgate meeting every time we started doing something we had not done for a while. Also spent some time as a safety officer. Better to keep reminding than fixing.

Like the layout. Looks like my shop except your is neater and has more steel.

Gordon, good idea about the tailgate meetings, glad you came in today. My shop did not look like that this morning , but since it was so nasty outside I had to move inside. Still need to clean another bay out, I have a genny setting on a bench you can't even see , that one needs repair so I can mount it in the Tot'r.

No picnic table , if I had one right now that would be cold storage -19* as I type,I'm still in the lot in front of the truck repair place , waiting for a slow down to finish up the new fuel lines. Brakes are 100% done and all paid up ! All parts and labor $1K including all copper nickel lines.(I didn't replace the rear drums and shoes or the front rotors $500 more and they were all good.)
All of my spare parts (not really carrying much, mostly stuff like the old hoses and belts and an extra distro cap) are now in the cabinet under my sink ! I do have some fishking tackle trays with nuts and bolts under the bed....

It's all I got , gotta make it work...................

Popeye,
I really like your sense of humor and the way you put things, between you and Gordon you keep my smiling if not downright laughing.
I've been running down the wiring to my electric over hydraulic trailer brkes, they haven't been working properly, I have been checking all the spices in the wiring and all but 1 splice has checked out, the one was corroded, so I redid it (ground). The brake controller is working like it should and I have up to 12 volts going to the motor. I still hve to unhook the unit and run the test. I sure hope it isn't the unit, it is just shy of a grand to replace.
Later all,
Frank

Ground is the problem 90% of the time in automotive electric.
I use those butt connectors way to much now days. always used to solder , getting lazy in my old age......I do coat them with liquid electric tape though.
Hope the controller works for ya.

Yup. I can see at -19 that the picnic table is a ice chest.

Great on getting stuff done. I hope there is a slow down shortly. Possibly a move to warmer climes once the final work is completed.

Popeye these work great!!



I would never recommend these however! May be easy to use but they corrode very easily and then you have to search for the open circuit. JMHO

Hey Diesel Tech!

Where do you get the butt connectors? I have had a real hard time finding those. Thought they went out of business?

Good Morning, Very foggy this am, 33* snow and ice is melting . Popeye, nice you got the brakes done, fuel lines and you will be set, how's the roof ? Frank, hope that controller is ok, Diesel Tech, I've used those also, they work very well when heated they seal up pretty good. Lloyd, I get mine from ROGO, I've got them other places too, have to think on that. Well going to work on the Tot'r, I have to pull the body back about three inches to get room to install the flexible seal for the pass thru, then start on the rear body.
