Solar Systems

Chilling: It is cool and overcast today so I am chilling for today. My friend(Barry) had to be talked into it, he is always ready to get after a job. As for me as I have gotten older ….. I’m not near as ambitions to get after jobs. I still need to remove the Inverter/Charger and the 4 batteries, it will only take about an hour or two, so not much left to remove the rest of the solar system from my friends RV, however it will be a real job to reinstall it on my rig!

I have a complete solar system install on my RV but this new one is a far better/bigger system, so I will be keeping parts of my and parts of the new one. I will have a left over Inverter/Charger and 2 Solar Chargers, at least one Solar Panel and other assorted parts.

Bust of Energy: Well I decide to go ahead and remove the last of my friends solar system after all. Now it will be a matter of what to do with what.

Tire Hanger

Tire Hanger: Today my friend and I put a spare tire hanger under my RV. My spare has always been mounted on the bumper of the RV but I plan to put the Generator back there so we move the tire to the hanger under the RV. My friend Barry is very good at mechanical things and to tell the truth he did most of the work but still I am beat!

Hot

Weather: Well I must be in the summer plan now. I know that some folks out there are still having some very cool weather but here in Truth or Consequences, NM it is hitting 90 today, pretty dang hot being in RV(and not hook to electric). I would be gone from here if not for appointments with the VA Doc, I got to stick it out till at least the end of the month. From looking at the Weather app on my phone it looks like we are in for a hot week and then back down a bit temperature wise, I’ll be looking forward to the back down a bit part.

Wiring: Yesterday Barry and I wired up a couple of 3-way Switches for his RV water pump. It had only one switch in the Kitchen area and we add a second one to the bathroom and make them 3-way so he can turn the water pump on or off from either switch. We could not find any SPDT DC Switches anywhere in this little town so we used 120 AC 3-way switches. I know that is not the best practice but the pump is less than 10 amp(12 Volt) so I think it will not be a problem.

Weekend: The State Parks always picks up a little more activity during the weekends but where we are park, it is not much, just a few folks out for a little weekend fishing. Don’t ask me about what kind or how many they are catching because I do all my fishing at Long John Silvers! However … just watching a bit, I see some of the folks pulling a few in here and there.

No Pictures

Hi everyone, I’m going to be lazy today and not post a picture or pictures. My water pump on the RV went out over the weekend and I had to take a trip back to Flagstaff to get a new one and come back and replace the old one, so it was a long day. I had some problems with the old pump last year so it finally give up the ghost.

I always eat bad when I go into the city and I didn’t exercise any today so that is a double hit 😦 I’ll have to do good tomorrow 🙂

Busy as a bee

Working on the RV today, trying to get the new cabinets done.  So no pictures today 😦   Hopefully I’ll be back to playing in a couple more days! 

Not much on here today but I’m going to hit the past button anyways, I promise to do better tomorrow.

Oh, there is a big Windows 10 update coming (they are calling it the fall update) let us hope it don’t break too many things.

Forest, a rock one

Pictures: These from the Petrify Forest, which we stopped at on the way over from NM last fall.

Exercise: My walk today …. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.42mi, time: 45:43, pace: 18:56min/mi, speed: 3.17mi/h.

Furnace: Today I replaced the motor in my RV furnace, which I have been needing to do for a long time. I always try to stay in warm places so when I need a little heat the Wave 8 Catalytic Heater is always plenty of heat but ….. I may go early to my summer Volunteer job and if I do I will need lots of heat! We’ll see if I go early or not, thinking on it 🙂
