    Had to ride with this the other day

    So so far my first HVAC job isn’t going that great. The other day I was assigned to work with the tech that works out of this van.

    How did you get a picture inside of my van?
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    When I 1st got into the trade, I would spend Friday night cleaning and sorting and making a list for what I needed to restock etc
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Depending on how busy it is, mine can look that way, too. I don't like it!!!

    When you get home, you have good intentions but they are usually ignored for other things NOT work related.

    I, too, use a weekend day to tidy up.

    If it's slow/normal it is kept clean(er).
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    I hate when the truck is full of filters. Just can't get to things.

    Plus, if you are an installer, it seems your truck is always a mess. Fortunately, I have rarely been put on installs these past many years, because my troubleshooting skills are more in demand.

    But I can tell you a technique I used, and still sort of use, to keep the truck in order. I don't really any more, because I've developed a habit of putting things away where they belong instead. The idea being, especially in service, that's on the customers dime, they should pay for the very few and small amount of time it takes to put things back where they belong.

    Every single time you open a door to the back of your van, you are required to put three things away. Once you develop that habit, sometimes you'll even end up putting five or more things in their place, because it's easier to do it at that moment than later.

    For installers, it seems they are always being pushed for time, might be one reason their trucks always seem to be a mess.
