Is your water tank underground? Mounted on a platform or some other way to take advantage of gravity? How large? How do you hump water in to your cabin? Lots of questions, but you have gotten my attention!

Youare discovering the slippery slope of loads! Water pump,, TV, satellite dish,,Internet dish/modem. You are where I was 10 years ago. Keep resisting the urge for more loads,,,,, betcha can't!
Good luck,, sounds like you have a nice spot. Are you just about through your ice season? We have had warm days,,, +15c with overnight lows ~-5. All the snow is off the ice,,, and the bush is getting bare here and there. I suspect our ice will be out in about another 3 weeks or so.

I'm curious about your earlier specs ( 1 80w bp panel and two 350A batteries)
What did you use on those in terms of TV and Lights and for how long?
So now I finally have decided to build a new "tool shed" with a cellar underground where I can store the batteries.
Hi Ole,Nice to hear from you again--I missed you.You were working on your own battery monitor design (as I recall)--Did you ever get a chance to finish it?-Bill
