ODFW Refrigeration Trailer – Tom Vanderplaat asked the Sandy Chapter what we are going to do about the broken refrigerator trailer at the Sandy River hatchery. Greg R. & Steve R. met with a refrigeration expert and found: it needs new battery, the inner tires need replacing before moving and the electrical started and ranfor a few minutes then shut off without a code.
The Association board needs to decide if the trailer is still in need, or our recommendation is to try to sell it.
