Dump trailer repairs
I tried to jump the old battery in the trailer but it was a no go, so.
I had to left the trailer bed somehow, at least enough to get to the battery and hydraulic pump unit to check out what the problem was.
I used some blocks of wood and a wrecker bat to pry the trailer up just a bit.
Thinking about it
To my surprise the pump turned and I was now able to lift the trailer up with the hydraulic pump. While I was doing this the relay jammed on and the trailer almost dumped the load of brush in it.
But at the last moment I was able to pull off the battery jumper cable just in time.
Bad solenoid unit
Got the part ordered up
I decided to see if Amazon had one, so it was to the computer for me. I did find one and got it ordered up, so now I have to wait a few days for it to arrive.
Peach tree pruning
The chickens were a bit weary as a hawk had just tried to grab a chicken. It hit it and got some feathers but it missed and the chicken escaped, so the chickens were hanging close to me for protection.
Its’ a small hawk and I’m surprised it’s big enough to take a chicken out. At least today it didn’t get a chicken.
Rest of the day
I sat around and did some chair hopping for the rest of the day until the night chill came on and I adjourned to the house.
