Moving right along.
4 days left to the party.
Got the vertical tracker linear actuator mounted and tested. also got the cooking hanger re mounted as the whole dish had to be rotated 90 degrees in order to put the removable side sections where removing them will keep the dish within the trailer width.
Drove the trailer with me in it around the yard through the grass. the tiny motor did ok, but the gear box sounds tell me that the best life will be realized if the trailer is set up on pavement, and on flat ground, but it can work on grass if required.
Also need to make sure the dish is pointing in a safe direction when parked, almost started the side of my basement entryway on fire by parking it the wrong way last night.
