ENGINEERING REPORT  SOL #13

Date: 05 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 – 73%
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 – 37 inches
Trailer to Static Pump used – No
Water (loft) –  12, topped off
Static to Loft Pump used – Yes, topped it off
Water Meter:
Atv # 1,3,5 Oil Checked:  #1 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.

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. Plugged
up de-icer doo-hickey on static tank, however when I turn on the static to
loft pump it runs but does not pump water.  We should be good for tonight
and tomorrow if it doesn’t end up working by then.

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.
