Prepping the Van for a Trip and Figuring Out How to Repair the Golf Cart

Stay  home when it’s windy

I could see by the weather report it was going to be a windy day on the river. Seemed like the thing to do was to stay home and prep the van for a trip.

I needed to grease it and check all it’s fluids, so I got the blanket out and the tools I needed and did the job.DSC02444


For some reason I never like to do the checking of the fluids, checking the transmission, transfer case and differentials seems to be the part I don’t like to do.

However, I did it and all the fluid levels checked out ok.

Tanking up on water

After a break I filled all my water containers and then did some tidying up getting rid of stuff not needed and adding food stuffs that will be needed.

What to do to fix the golf cart

I still had my brothers broken golf cart to deal with too. I had him looking for a new pin to fix the computers socket, but he said he wasn’t able to locate a pin, so far. So I gave him some ideas and sent him off calling. When he came back, same story no pin could be had.

Expecting this while he was away, I checked out the carts wiring schematic to see if there was another pin on the socket that it didn’t need and could transfer over to the one we did need. I found only one wire not needed on the socket and that was the backup alarm which was already disconnected.

So all I have to do is cut the wire to the backup pin and move the pin to the bad spot and connect the wire up and things should work.

Finishing up the day with a nap

I got all the stuff and the tools out, but before I could get that done, I felt a nap coming on, so did that instead. While I was doing that it got dark, so I didn’t get the golf cart fixed yet.

And that was my day.

    I used to live by that rule, but now that I’m retired I don’t always do a good job of it. And older age logic tells me, what for, we will all die eventually anyway. :O) But somehow the jobs get done.

    Can’t argue with a nap and isn’t there a rule that only one job a day is necessary?
