Capacity?

bill_daniels 08-16-2019 10:05pm

How did the trailer brake controller come out? Did it work properly?

MEANZ06 08-16-2019 10:11pm

How ever you cut it, water is good! :hurray:

Do you not have a well DAB? If not, how often do you have to fill that bad boy?

800 gallons

Electric brakes work fine.

Well went dry many years ago. This lets us (me) make one trip a week to top off our buried storage cistern. We use about 700 gal/week. Better quality water and more dependable.

For that extra excitement, fill it half full and stop quick. :seasix:

Ok so full is roughly 7000-7500 pounds including trailer, well within the capacity of the truck but definitely need those brakes

How big is the cistern?? and you need put some sort of chem system in the line, like for a swim pool?? but obviously less and different kind of chems??

try to dig another well?? I had my little 30' well irrigation well go dry, so I tried messing with it, but too much bother....it used to provide the heat sink for the HVAC a water to air type unit, but just no outside condenser coils.....nice large coils special wound, so freon in middle, water jacket outside....krazy plumbing as you can imagine.....but when it came down to it, a better air/air unit outside runs actually cheaper than the old water/air unit that came with the house....so we just rely on rain to make the grass grow, and it certainly been growing like MAD this year.....:sadangel::shots:

Buried cistern is 2500 gal.

Water is processed thru an RO unit.

Where do you get your water now? Expensive?

county run bulk water facility (open 24/7, self serve with an ID # and PIN #). water is 1 cent per gallon. the biggest cost is the gas to get back and forth, 39 mile round trip. likely will make my maiden trip with this tank tomorrow to top off the cistern. needs about 600 gallons.

MrPeabody 08-17-2019 06:37pm

Very nice. Plus, in a pinch, that trailer represents additional storage capacity.:yesnod:

JRD77VET 08-17-2019 07:43pm

very nice :cool1:

Here's a nice "cheat" for backing up a trailer..... ALWAYS keep your hands on the bottom half of the steering wheel and the trailer will go in the direction you turn the wheel. :yesnod:

DAB 08-18-2019 11:57am

:dance: :hurray:

first load today was a success!

only needed 600 gallons to top things off, so it sloshed a little on the way home. used the tow/haul setting on the truck. took about 20 min to drain to the cistern, little gets left behind due to the incline locally, so i'll just have to account for that and water the driveway as I park it again. don't want to leave water in the drain pipe in winter, that would be very bad. :slap:

took fewer tries to park it as well, so all put away until next week. :DAB:

For an M1A fund take a look around your gun stuff and consider monetizing things you no longer use or need. I have been clearing out 35 year's accumulation of parts and accessories on Gunbroker of late, and I have acquired a pretty good down payment for a Springfield (or a Hi Power in my case) by selling online.

M1A1 Abrams tank was the joke. :slap:

i'm pretty good on guns presently, but always interested in something special.

a new Wilson 1911 costs about the same.....also vetoed for now "you have a 1911!" true, but not one that costs over $5k. :dance: :slap:

Considered one of the brand new Turkish copies they are selling? Tisas, I think?

mrvette 08-18-2019 05:58pm

What you all think an H/K Benelli 12 ga 8 shot nice and clean is worth??

3" shells.....M4 super 90

and a Deerslayer 12 ga??

DAB 08-18-2019 06:10pm

i love tangents.

if only there was a website that was gun related, that showed guns for sale (legally) with prices. that was searchable....

gunbroker.com
