Iron Horse RV Ranch - Yorktown, TX - Saturday, February 27, 2016
Morning 39 Degrees, Wind North calm, Humidity 89%, light fog.
Afternoon 69 Degrees, Wind SSW 8 & gusting to 12 Mph, Humidity 54%, partly cloudy.
More traffic today, sand trucks plenty of sand trucks coming and going during the night. It does help the night pass and not just sitting waiting for someone to come or go. Last night some trucks spent most of the night there in the staging area waiting (sleeping in the truck) to be called up the hill to the work area.

Empty sand truck on his way out
This afternoon we received a call to work the same gate one more night and for my wife to work a different gate tonight. My wife’s gate was slow but my gate continued to be sand trucks throughout the night.

We got a call mid afternoon from the mobile RV repair saying he could be at Buster late to install the “hot rod” in Busters hot water tank. We set that up until a few minutes later the call came for my wife to work tonight. I had to call and turn off that work until tomorrow.

Hot rod installed in drain port, brass 
We were up too early, after working all night, and feeling like we really need a shower. So I tried the propane gas and it worked. I did have to cycle the switch a few times but was able to get the water hot enough for showers. Mobile RV called and came installing the hot rod in Busters hot water tank. The rod is in the drain port and a thermostat is inside at the top of the tank. Then a wire is plugged into a receptacle. That receptacle
is on a separate circuit so we do not overload heating devices on a circuit causing a circuit breaker to pop.
