Very nice Steve. How much power are you producing now with aiming the panels?

The batteries got down to 12.5 volts early this morning with the refer and space heater going. It is 11:06 AM and I've got my 2500 watt inverter turned on charging my laptop and see 17 amps bulk charging on the solar controller with the inverter load with 13.5 volts on the batteries. It will be around 20 amps by 1:00 PM. BTW, it took about 15 minutes to setup the panels when we arrived. Pretty happy with the performance so far. I had to turn the refer down to 3.75 from 4.5 because some food was freezing a little. This will take my refer duty cycle down somewhere below 40%.

Sounds like this compressor fridge/extra solar project is no longer an experiment but a total success. Great job.

Happy New Year from San Clemente from the California SCABs!

Happy 2015 from the SCAB's (SouthernCaliforniaescApeBunch). Here's our New Years greetings. We started the celebration a little early and feasted on delicious RoadKill Poutine! (recipe hint, the lizard added a lovely texture to our feast!). Los Deliquentes were in rare form and the ladies wouldn't let us sit together.

(front row: Greggo and HotLavaLady, standing Hotfishtacos, Jane M, Lori, and Mrs. Greggo).

Let the good times roll!
