Yah, happy wife, happy life

But a definite thanks to you for posting your finished photos of the under the fridge area. Once she saw your photos she OK'd doing that mod also.

So, it's finish up the two areas already opened up, finish installing the digital thermostat, make a control panel for the space between the table top and the window, get my solar panel and the adjustable bracket made and then after that what the heck am I going to work on?

Ron

Re-routing water pipes?? Reaming PVC? Moving cabinet walls? A control panel for the table top and the window? Adjustable solar brackets?? Someone please hand me four or five fingers of Glennmorangie.

I think we need to start a support group for Escape trailer modification nuts. I know my wife will be the first one to sign me up! I don't know about you guys but I probably will never be completely done making modifications to my trailer.

Simple solar tilting already outdated....

The researchers were able to get 40% effeciency out of the panels...


"The advance involved two steps. Three solar panels were stacked to capture energy from different wave lengths of sunlight, and then excess light from the stacked panels was directed by a mirror and filters to a fourth PV cell, making use of energy previously discarded."

I concur, an excellent idea. At the various rallies they'll put us all over in a corner, probably with sketch pads and steel tapes.

True that! I've got a list already, and I won't even pick my Escape 17 until next summer.

Don
Edit: another thought: There will be a sub-set of that group just for special tool acquisitions, and the appropriate justifications for those expenses.

Hi, my name is Ron......

No, they won't put us in a corner with sketch pads, they'll knock on our door and say "Do you happen to have...." and the answer is usually yes. I love it when someone says something like "does anyone have some Gorilla tape?" and I say "what color"

Ron, (spares and tools for any situation is my middle name).
