Location: Parking lot of RV Connection in Yuma, Arizona
The road noise died down and I slept well last night. This morning, I was up with the Sun again taking Yuma for a walk while my coffee percolated.
Last night I had to shut the solar power off because my batteries were getting low. The reason was I had the fridge going from a warm state to cold so it was running full time. However we didn't turn the solar power on until after 6 o'clock so my batteries didn't have a full charge to meet the demand.
Going to be a beautiful day and not as warm as yesterday. I turned the solar power on when I got back from our walk. Today, I'll get a full dose of solar power and the batteries will be fully charged for tonight's test.
It wasn't long before I was removing everything from my ice chest and placing the items in the fridge.
So happy to not have to keep digging through ice to find what I'm looking for.
On one of my walks, Yuma met our neighbor's dog name Mattie. She was fairly aggressive and would snarl at poor Yuma, but she still wanted to run around chasing Yuma too. She wasn't sure if she liked Yuma or not.
Tom placed two monitors in the wall next to the TV in the bedroom. One he had in before I took a picture. That is the big black box above the white one. He had the hole cut for the other one. The second picture shows both monitors installed and working.
By 5 o'clock, Tom had everything done with the WL except for installing the transfer switch and that is about a fifteen minute task. He is ordering that and it will be here on Tuesday. I'm actually glad for the delay because it gives me two days to use my solar power while I'm here with Tom near by in case I have a problem or questions.
My first night of using solar power will test whether my batteries stored enough power to get me through the night without running too low. If they can't, I'll be buying more batteries to store more solar power fairly soon. I started the evening with 100% battery power and would like to have 40% or more left in the morning to pass the test. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.
This evening I turned on the Dish and TV to watch The Walking Dead. After that, a nice hot shower and now to finish my blog and have a light dinner and dessert. I ate a big late lunch, so I'm not really hungry.
Arizona doesn't participate in Daylight Savings Time, but for the rest of you, welcome to DST!
Beautiful evening here. See you later.
