[time-nuts] Trimble Thunderbolt Hard Reset

The main things the hard reset does:

1) Erase the last survey location so the unit goes into self survey.

2) Erase any custom filter settings so the unit uses the factory settings.

3) The usual “restart the box” stuff.

There is no downside to a hard reset and no custom fiddling to get the 
unit working after it. You should let it do a re-survey. You should run the 
filter optimizer in LH. After those are done, a longer LH based survey is a
good idea.
