This morning at 8:30, Yuma barked until I got up and took him for a walk. Overnight the winds came in at 15 - 25 mph and are forecasted to blow all day. Thank goodness it is warm with lots of sunshine. Went back to bed until 9:30 and then it was time to start the day.
Last night I made the decision to go look at RV house batteries today. My current batteries are not holding up through the night to serve my residential refrigerator, so it is time.
After a leisurely breakfast outside on the south side of the White Lion protected from the wind, I headed into Yuma at high noon leaving Yuma with Nick.My biggest reason for going is to find out how many batteries I need and Interstate Batteries is a good place to get information about batteries. I know what I want. 100ah AGM batteries but I'm not sure how many to get. I figured I needed four for my 600 watt solar panel system and sure enough that is what they quoted me.
I was ready to buy so asked them if they had four in stock and they said no, but were expecting a shipment in any day now. That was a complete letdown 😠 A big battery company with no batteries!!
Told them I was headed to Quartzsite soon and he mentioned they deliver batteries to Discount Solar in Quartzsite and if I called them they would reserve four batteries when delivered from here in Yuma. Tomorrow, I will make a few calls here in Yuma and if necessary in Quartzsite to try to get hold of four batteries. Let you know what happens on my battery quest.
Got back to camp around 3:30 and we all laid around soaking up the warm sun till dark and then fixed a quicky dinner.
Nothing on TV tonight, so doing my blog early and will be in bed by 9 o'clock. By the way, the Charger / Raiders game last night was the best back and forth suspenseful game I've seen in quite awhile.
Thanks for stopping by.
