Repairs & maintenance

Tore the front of the trailer apart this morning, wire brushed metal, sanded, cleaned and rattle can painted. Put a clean end on the trailer connection, checked, works correctly. The old one had a 4 pole flat wired in, and not done very well. It's amazing things worked! Also painted the propane tank base, and the rear bumper. Needed new square u-bolts for both the propane tank base and spare tire carrier, so had to run for those. Got everything back together except for the Bargman.

Still need to order a Bargman, brakes are tomorrow or Monday, not sure yet. Got brake cleaner, ready to clean, grease a few things, check and roll.

Bargman has two wires, one a blue wire going into the chassis at the same place the white and black from the 12V battery go, and a white ground. Does that sound right? I guess there will be instructions with it. The trailer is too low and I'm too old to crawl around on gravel underneath it to look. I got a buddy with a commercial garage, maybe I can get in there sometime. It would be nice to wire brush, sand, clean and paint the entire under-chassis.

Battery, for having a date of 12/07 is in great shape, good voltage and took a 100% charge easy.

Need to figure out what bulb the license plate light takes. Seems to be missing. Also have one of the 5 upper marker lights across the top of the trailer out, need to check that out. Doing good.

More later.

Frank

Your doing lots of work. Looks like you need a new tag light fixture, not just the bulb.

That's no biggie Jim. Will pick one up soon. Working on the brakes, can't seem to get the magnet to move the shoes. Maybe shoes are rusted in place? Think I'll just grease stuff up and put it back together.
