Summary of Engineering activities:

-       PUT A GOOD BATTERY IN ATV #2 THE BATTERY WAS IN ATV #4 THE BATTERY THAT WAS IN ATV #2 HAS BEEN ON CHARGER ALL NIGHT AND DAY AND ONLY SHOWS A VOLTAGE OF 11.5 AND SHOWS NO SIGNS OF FURTHER INCREASING.

-       CHECKED AND TOOK PHOTOS OF WATER THAT LOOKS LIKE IT IS COMING FROM UNDER THE HAB. PHOTOS ATTACHED.

-       CHECKED THE SUPPOSED FUEL LEAK IN THE GENERATOR SHED. PHOTOS ATTACHED.  BROUGHT A SAMPLE INTO THE LAB AREA TO CONFIRM THAT THE LIQUID IS DIESEL FUEL.

-       CLEANED THE WATER PUMP TRAP TO MAKE THE WATER PUMP OPERATE CORRECTLY.

-       CONTINUED TO WORK ON THE ZIPPER FOR THE GREEN HAB. IT IS NO FUN TO SEW IN THE COLD.
Notes:

                     Everything looks fine from the Engineering Checks
Questions and Concerns to Mission Support:
WHY WAS I APPROVED TO MAKE A KEY HOLDER RACK IN THE LAB AREA AND THEN FOUND THIS MORNING WHEN I CHECKED MY EMAIL FOUND SOMEONE ELSE THEN DISAPPROVED ME TO MAKE THIS MODIFICATION. THIS ALSO HAPPENED TO THE REQUEST TO CLAMP MOUNT GOPROS TO THE EVA SUITS THAT WILL NOT LEAVE ANY TRACE TO THE SUITS AND WILL NOT MODIFY THE SUITS.

REQUESTS
-       REQUESTING PERMISSION TO FIND AN EXACT LEAK IN THE FUEL LINES IN THE GENERATOR SHED.
-       HAVE GAS JUGS FILLED FOR ATV EVA
-       THE CHOKE LEAVER ON ATV#2 IS BROKEN AND THE STEAL CABLE IS IN PERFECT SHAPE REQUESTING PERMISSION TO CREATE A HANDEL TO OPERATE THE CHOKE SO THE ATV CAN BE UTILIZED.
-       I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE SCHEMATICS ON THE PLUMBING OF THE ENTIRE HAB INCLUDING WATER LINES AND THE SEPTIC SYSTEM.
-       IS THERE CURRENTLY ANY PLANS ON HOW TO FINISH THE ENGINEERING DECK OUTSIDE THE ENGINEERING AIRLOCK. IF THERE ARE PLANS WOULD I BE ABLE TO BE TOLD WHAT THEY ARE AND PROCEEDED TO BUILD THEM.
