Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Feb 24 - 26

Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Morning 41 Degrees, Wind W 1 & gusting to 4 Mph, Humidity 89%, sunny.
Afternoon 64 Degrees, Wind NW 6 & gusting to 13 Mph, Humidity 27%, sunny.

The hot water heater is acting up again, not continuing to fire after the start cycle. The switch has two lights one green to show there is power available. The other is a red light that comes on and goes out after the start cycle. That light also illuminates when the propane gas is empty or a flame out. That red light keeps coming on, and I turn off the power. When I turn the power on again the ignition circuit re-fires and it does run until the igniter goes off and the run circuit does not “see” flame shutting off the propane gas again.

Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Thursday, February 25, 2016 Morning 39 Degrees, Wind variable calm & gusting to 1 Mph, Humidity 69%, sunny.
Afternoon 71 degrees, Wind W 2 & gusting to 5 Mph, Humidity 43%, mostly sunny.
I have done some troubleshooting on the hot water heater and found the “run” circuit is not working. The start, igniter firing, is OK as it does start but will not run the water temperature up to normal. I have the mobile RV repair guy coming tomorrow.

Morning 41 Degrees, Wind N 6 & gusting to 10 Mph, Humidity 40%, sunny.
Afternoon 66 Degrees, Wind ENE 7 & gusting to 14 Mph, Humidity 34%, mostly sunny.  
I had mobile RV come to work on the hot water heater, see if my troubleshooting is correct, it needs a control board. We are also going to get a “hot stick” that is an electric heating rod that will go into the drain port of the tank. This will give us the option of propane gas or electric for heating the water.
The work is being done to the left the upper area
the lower area to the right is staging for sand trucks and extra equipment on the left

Not very busy night just at the beginning of and at the end of the shift, the first and last hour. When I get there the night shift people are in and after a bit the day people leave. In the morning I check in the day shift and then I leave for home at Buster. During the night I had some sand trucks but they mostly were parked in the staging area.

on the left is the cylinders that the sand trucks transfer the sand into
