So off to LOWE'S for a new faucet and some thread tape, I knew this was not going to be a quick fix. What shall be a half an hour work turns out to be a three hour thing, you know the water hose is tight and it takes more...

Jul 3, 2020 - Working Again On The Power Cord

The power cord from truck to trailer came loose from the truck as we were going down the road. I got a signal in my truck that I lost connection to my trailer,so I pulled off the road and found the power cord was not connected to the truck. I had drugged the cord enough to cut two wires that were for the brakes on the trailer and left side taillights. I worked on the wires and got the brakes back on and left running lights for the left taillights. I got everything going but the left turn signal and I would work on that after getting home....
