    OK, thanks! I know the ones you are talking about. I was wondering if there were more I wasn't thinking of.

    Man that made me tired just looking at it, can't even imagine doing it for real. Sure looks good though.

    It was over 90° both days and I put in 5:00am to 7-8 pm hours both days. Drank more water than I ever thought I could hold. Here is few more pictures. Tomorrow I go get the last two middle blocks and then I can put them and the last two top blocks on and finish the gravel backfill and start adding topsoil.

    Very nice work Hoss. 101F and 12% humidity here today. Not exactly working outside weather, you lose a lot of water really fast. More like lake (or creek) weather.

    Wow, that looks great! I didn't know they made cement blocks that stack and look like a rock wall when done. That's pretty neat. I helped build a rock wall 25yrs ago and it was nothing but dump trucks full of busted up boulders. It was like a puzzle. A big giant pain in the A$$ puzzle! Haha

    Looks great Hoss !!! i needed to do that at my shop but no worries now lol
  14. I went to air up my rear bags on my Denali the other when I had a car on a trailer and I didn't like how low the rear sat. So I lift the switch and nothing. I check the fuse and it's blown, put another fuse in and the same thing, blew another fuse. I was only 180 miles from home so I just hit I-5 and drove. It really did drive fine but there were a few bumps that it did bottom out on so I jumped off 5 and took the back roads home. This was last week, I pulled the compressor off today and the first thing I noticed was rust around the air inlet as I took the front cover off the pump more rust and barnacle on the aluminum housing. So I pulled the head and it looks like new so that water didn't come in from there. The electric motor spins free but the rod is Frozen to the crank pin. I thought I had it in a location that was well protected from water intrusion... I guess I was wrong...wait a minute, I WAS WRONG! I'm human after all! I will see if I can get a new bearing for it and put it back in. I guess I will have to make a cover for it. I hope I can just get away with new bearing but I'm sure it's some metric off the wall size.

    They are called Redi rock and my local Smokey point concrete plant had them. They delivered two loads on 40' semi trailers I used a Deere 50 trackhoe to unload them. My tractor will pick them up and move them around but I needed the trackhoe to place them.

    Very nice, where did you get the blocks? How where they delivered and unloaded?

    Awesome! Now I can see the pictures. You do pretty good work. It could be better......😁
  20. This is my little weekend project I got 90% finished Sunday. I had to get the trackhoe back today so it had be done Sunday. The first half of each day wasn't bad but once the sun cleared the trees it was too dang hot! I was drinking water as fast as I could and couldn't keep up. Saturday afternoon I got so overheated I just walked down to the creek and did the nestea plunge in the deepest part I could find. Felt great till my clothes dried out and did it again. I was by myself and positioning 1,600lbs blocks by yourself is a pain. The wall is 8'x55' and has 30 yards of 3/4" clean crushed rock backfill in it and a 12" base of the same. It has a 4" perforated drain pipe behind the first layer of block. The slope from the house twards the creek was getting worse and worse due to moles digging holes and dogs digging mole holes. Now I can have a level back yard. I still have the 2 middle block and 2 top blocks to go on the far side then the top caps go on. I am tired!!!!

    How many grounds were there Greg? Or are you talking about removing the ECM and cleaning the contact points as well. Thinking i may do this on my just in case.

    Starting problems

    So after taking it to the dealer and having a new SKIM reader and key made, it was still happening. Then I started to get APPS p 2121 code and dead peddle along with brake switch fault and turbo over boost. I set the truck back to stock and replaced the brake switch and the APPS and was still getting codes and the SKIM reader not working right. I read that grounds are very important for the ECM. I cleaned all grounds reset the throttle peddle so far so good. I put the smarty back on and it's been a week and no codes and the truck seem to be running great. I did a 100 mile tow with my trailer and no problems.

    Solar panel install in Loose Cruise

    RV fridges are not cheap either, that's why I bought a residential Frigidaire and got a bigger unit in the same space as the RV unit. I would like to have a few solar panels and large storage batteries. I have done some reading and people are using older EV battery packs. They may be done in the vehicles life but they still have a long life after.

    Thinking about a TDi again...

    Looks nice low miles I love mine same car with auto trans. I did turbo @180k and camshaft around 225k only issues I’ve had. If I had to do again at 200k I would have done timing belt and camshaft then would have been set( FYI camshaft fail often on this model)

    Solar panel install in Loose Cruise

    Yeah I’m not sure that option would be anymore efficient when on batteries but it would be nice on shore power. The fridge is only about 18” square and built in under the counter in the galley. I’m pretty sure it’s original 1987 equipment. I’ve looked at new replacements thinking they’d be more efficient and run less but they’re big $$... I hope this one keeps running.
