Moved back down to the desert outside Sedona , waiting for the dental work , in the meantime I got a major electric issue figured out with the help of a friend . I found that the wire from batteries to inverter was not large enough, increased to #2awg and I can run everything , space heater included .
It is nice to have had all the issues early on happen close to home , where it feels safe , we know people , and help is around the corner
Well , after two weeks in an rv park , we headed for the woods . Just came back from 2 weeks up by stoneman lake .thankfully we were close to help . We had the water line blow out on the on demand hot water heater . Learned that the first three feet coming out should be copper , not pex. Lesson learned . And we found that unless we pay attention , 100 gal of water can disappear quickly .
The solar is working awesome and I have some experiments to do with increasing wire size to inverter so maybe it will actually run something more than a water pic.
All in all fun is being had , learning the new ways of life , coming to really appreciate hot water and a shower . Been going woodsman for the past three weeks cause it was a little chilly up the hill , now we are down in some warmer weather and can lather up
well, as soon as the decision was made , it happened . we posted studio for sale and within 24 hrs it was sold . a little sad but it is awesome to start out with some extra funding for the bus and the build
Heading to phoenix on monday , i think they have the one we want
