Monday January 3, 2022 Guerneville CA.
It was raining today more on than off.
I needed to have a look at one of my car’s headlights that wasn’t working. It glowed but didn’t shine bright so I figured there must be something wrong with it’s ground and there was.
Once the battery was out I could get to the bulb which was under the bulb connector socket, that thing with the big white plastic nut. The big white nut turned out to be the problem which I soon found out.
I couldn’t see anything wrong with the wires or the light bulb so I decided to switch the bad light bulb with the other one as I’d have to put the battery back in to test things out and this would tell me if there was something wrong with the bulb or not.
Big white nut
So I got the bulbs switched and hooked the battery back up. I had some trouble getting the big white plastic nuts to tighten up so I sprayed the threads with some silicone spray, not knowing that would fix the bad light problem.
The problem turned out to be that big white plastic nut’s threads needed some lube so it could be tightened enough to seat the ground on the bulb. it wasn’t tight enough to seat the ground on it.
That got fixed easier than I thought it would. It was still raining so I went back in the house and watched some YouTube.
I watched these Utah guys doing a recovery from some soft sand in the back country. This is the guy in the yellow rigs channel.
This is the guys channel in the white rig which I watch a lot. Fab Rats.
There seems to be a gang of these guys from Utah that are interesting to watch that know and interact with each other. Family stuff and no murder and killing stuff. :O)
I also watch Itchy Boots a lady touring south America on her dirt bike and soon heading to Alaska.
And that was pretty much it for me today.
