I finally finished installing the wiring for the rear lights of the towed up to the round 6 wire socket and for the Invisibrake System. The wiring of the lights was fairly easy, the wiring of the Invisibrake, installing the brake away switch and all the other parts of the brake system was an ordeal.

I came out fairly good bruise and cuts wise but my knees and back are another story.

I tested the brake system this morning and everything worked fine. This coming week end will be the field test. I’m going out to the DD’s place and get the Winnie out of storage. The first phase of testing will be the new 6 conductor umbilical cord and the static test and then a road test and fine tuning the brake system pressure. I sure will be happy to have it all done and behind me.

This is also my farewell post on RV.NET. Goodbye, it’s been a good run for most of the 18 years I‘ve been a member here and I’ll miss a lot of you and few of you a lot. I’ve learned a lot about RV’s and I hope I helped out a few of you…

I never had the pleasure of getting to know you David but I wish you all the best going forward!

Ah. Reason # (I lost count) why I pay Rachel to do things.. [emoticon] (She's good at it too).

I got to spend Saturday Morning with her and it did not even COST me anything (Yippie).. Ok so it cost me Sat Morning....

You ask how did that happen? Well she's a Sgt in the county sheriff's reserve unit and there was a major foot race so her unit was doing traffic control.

I'm a radio operator and we provide communication support for the race.

I wound up assigned to the same corner. Not only did it not cost me anything but I got paid a T-Shirt (That's about all I'm allowed to "Earn" for that kind of thing. Federal law)


Home is where I park it.

Beat of luck to you. You sound like an amazing person (if you read your farewell wishes, lol).
Rock on!

I don't think parting is such sweet sorrow.
