All's well

Finally got out to the cabin for the first time this year!
Batteries were fully charged and in Float (I disconnect inverter and leave panels & controller hooked up). SG right up. Added 1/4 cup distilled water to each cell (nicely consistent and not too much loss since October). Fired up inverter: works perfectly as usual.

I also fired up the old Honda EU1000i generator. I don't know; took a dozen pulls. Mere 6,000+ hours on it and it's acting up. Maybe it needs a new spark plug. ;)

Now if I can only get the rest of the stuff done out there. Still 100 sq. ft. of roof missing, for example. :blush:

    Kewl! I always worry when I'm on extended vacation of haven't seen my system in a while, but 7 months!
    ....Still 100 sq. ft. of roof missing, for example.

    Stole your roof and left the solar panels? or putting a roof over a small porch?

    6000 houron generator, it's almost new. When I had a problim with my atv, I ran some carb cleaner through it and it just got better and better.

    Glad it all works

    It DOES look beautiful and very peaceful. However, you need to protect much more of the roof with PV modules, IMHO.

    Glad that all is well there, Marc. Vic

    Vic;

    See that big hole? That's where the new PV is supposed to go. ;)
