Notes and Comments:
Last night was a little cold, we are having problem with the heater., because when we turn it on, it heats, but few hours later the air is cold again. So, we have to turn it off and then turn it on again to keep us warm. Do you know a solution for this problem?

At the same time, we did an EVA session today. The blue moto is not working. In that way, we did the EVA session with the deimo and the red moto. We do not had any problems with these vehicles. In contrast, we had problems with the radios. All radios are working, however, approximately 2.5 km far from the Hab, we could not had any communication with the Hab. We do not know why that is. So, please send us the ratio of distance in which we could keep the communication.

Tomorrow we are going to use the solar.

******************************************************************
STATUS OF HAB:
Water: Full tank, 500 gallons
Water on trailer: Both tanks empty
Diesel for generator: 75%
Solar Power: 100% SOC
Generator: on from 4 pm.  Last person up tonight will shut it off.
Propane: big tank = 58%, small tank = 40%
Fuel for ATV’s (Jerry Cans): All gas unusable. DO NOT USE FUEL WITH
ETHANOL IN IT
Fuel for Hab Car: Full tank, new battery

******************************************************************
Tasks done today:
1) GreenHab: grow lights installed; shade cloth installed on south
wall; +/- 2 dozen pots planted and watered.
2) Toilet tank flushed out.
3) Tunnel between GreenHab and intersection to Science Lab removed and replaced.
4) Generator jump started, oil was topped off, and it is in working condition.
5) Electrical receptacles checked, and we found that the receptacles
in the toilet, shower room, and alcove in front are not working. Lack
of GFCI outlets in wet areas noted.
6) Replacement lid for vent/skylight fabricated.
7) Porthole in south airlock exterior door had fallen out due to
extreme wind conditions (and the fact that it was just sitting in the
opening and not fastened mechanically, just siliconed), but was
undamaged. So it was put back in with carabiners slotted through holes
on each side so that it won’t fall out again.

******************************************************************
Tasks that need to be done:
A. Water heater is still not working. Per Curtis, it needs to be fully
replaced. Installation expected soon.
B. Need more water in spare tanks.
