Blinking temp gauge

The heat gauge on the dash was blinking and not working as it should. I  must of knocked a wire loose or something while working on the heater ducting.

After a break I got under the dash and looked around and finally found the gauge’s input plug had pulled out and all was well with that now once I got it plugged back in.

Old winch got removed

I also finished removing the electric winch’s electrical lines as they were no longer needed.

Tidying up

The rest of the day I spent puttering around the van tidying things up with tie wraps and putting some of the tools away and checking out what else I need to get done on the van to be able to travel.

That was my day getting stuff done and I’m almost there. Nice sunny day out,  nice day.
