The rj-45 connector got so corroded after being outside for 9 months that one of the pins broke preventing the whole unit from powering on. As a result, I needed to replace the connector, but found that the wiring was a non standard color scheme.
So to determine how to splice the wires of a new connector to the original cabling, I used a continuity tester with fine point probes on each remaining pin of the old connector to see the wiring order. After mapping out the color order, I could solder and heat shrink the conductors.
This is a very difficult 13 mile hike with few people passing by. We went 9 hours with out running into a single person. The first part is the pipeline, its technically easy, just a straight shoot, but its really steep. There are 4 ridges.
The middle section along the dry run creek has no trail and it is littered with so many fallen trees that you MUST have water shoes so you can walk through it, around it, next to it, etc.
Its a challenging hike but its beautiful and quiet. Bring a GPS or pre-cache your maps, there is no cell reception!
