ENGINEERING REPORT  SOL #12

Date: 04 Feb 2016
Crew Engineer Name: Anderson Wilder

Diesel –  48% (It’s hard to keep an accurate number because I stand so far
below the needle)
Propane – 76%
Gasoline (5 Gallon containers for ATV) – 10 Gallons
Water (trailer) measured in inches from the top– 25 inches
Water (static) measured in inches from the bottom – topped off
Trailer to Static Pump used – Yes
Water (loft) –  12, topped off
Static to Loft Pump used – Yes, topped it off
Water Meter: 104,196.1
Atv # 1,3,5 Oil Checked:  #3 and #5 look a bit low
Atv # 1,3,5 Fuel Used Gals:  Unknown
Atv # 1,3,5 Tires Status:   Good
Atv Hours Used Day: 0

Atv Notes And Comments: ATV #1 is out of commission as of right now, so all
that we have operational is ATV #3 and 5 at this moment.  Battery to ATV #4
is very likely dead, charging it did not make a noticeable difference.  #5
has survived another night, so I’m pretty confident that it’s going to be
okay for now

Summary of Engineering activities: Went through basic engineering report
procedures, everything is good
Notes: The bolt cutters are still here to either be picked up or returned
to Hollow Mountain.  With that, the observatory is still unlocked. Static
tank to Loft pump was not pumping water for a little bit.  I went out and
checked it out pump was running but no water flow.  After moving the pump
around some water started to flow.  I assume the exposed hose inside tank
froze with whatever water was still in it and was blocking the hose but
when I went out and examined it the frozen parts ended up breaking free and
then allowed water to flow through

Questions and Concerns to Mission Support
It appears that FOX News (most likely 31, from Denver) left on
Thursday and took one of the radios with them. We have emailed the people
at FOX and are waiting on a response on the matter.

REQUESTS
Only concern here would be to get a new lock for the observatory,
and maybe another battery or two for the other ATVs #2 and #4.
