Hi Steve,
Fascinating stuff. Does each of those rack mount batteries really hold a 3kwhr charge? Wow!!

Amazing stuff!

I'll certainly let you know. Today is fairly grey sort of day here with the odd bit of sun poking through the clouds

This is whats it showing now.

After a night with the inverter running and a few bits of electricity being used for the fridge and lights it seems to loose around 10% but easily gets charged up by around midday , even if it's a bit grey. Much quicker if the suns shining.

I fitted the shower enclosure yesterday, what a workup.
Not sure how I would have managed if it wasnt for a friend dropping by to see how I was getting on. I said much better now that you've arrived. :D

Later fitting the doors with one hand balancing a sliding door and with a screwdriver in the other hand I somehow managed to turn on the shower. A cold one too. Now I have a nasty cold!!

Steve,

You should make a silent B&W film of your activities.

It would be a blockbuster :lol: :lol:
