YIKES!

I first saw that pic and thought it was a big nest of snakes.  Even after knowing what it is, still reminds me of snakes.  Good luck with that entanglement. Wish you well, but where to start...  and end??

When dealing with an "entanglement" the only wire or hose that you are interested in is the one that you have in your hand.   ;D

That's right. Concentrate on one circuit at a time keeping in mind that you will want to bundle them neatly.

I have been thinking the same thing Lee, but I know that it is sometimes difficult to do what you want to do when you are doing what you have to do.  "Life" gets in the way.

Sorry about the delay guys .The peat is 90% finished but for now i'm not going to put it back on the road.Sometimes things happen that you were not expecting and it did for me.I mentioned getting into the tree business to my friend JMiller and it's been on ever since.We found a nice 67 ft bucket truck and a w-19 woodchuck chipper to go with my equipment.I am able to saw full time during the week and do tree work every weekend.It has been challenging for both of us learning this new trade but I am very excited about this new venture.So for now the pete is on hold but if this works out I will be building a 24 ft  camper to go on the pete.JMiller want's to get in on this project and he has a lot of talent.For now we are busy building our business and gathering up equipment as we go.Looking for ward to the coach build later.Thanks

It would be sad to see work stopped when you are this close. Keep us posted.

Sawguy I'm just postponing this project for now.Although I must build a proper barn for it to store it in.I don't want all that new rubber to be exposed to the sun light.
First we have to get this chipper we bought up to speed.We are dealing with a good bit of wast in this tree work and it will speed things up.Then there is the dump trailer we have to modify to haul the chips in.That's next,but some days it rains and I can hang out here until clears up,like today Customsawyer.
