I took my Wi-Fi Ranger off the ladder and permanently mounted it on my Batwing TV antenna. This is a Wi-Fi repeater that will allow me to connect to wireless internet sources such as in camp grounds or any unprotected hot spots (McDonald's, Pizza Place, etc) and protected, if I can obtain a password, without getting out of my motorhome. This will be another internet option when I’m on the road. I also have the Verizon Jetpack.
I finished hooking up my solar charging system. Everything tested well except it seems my batteries are shot. It’s no wonder, they are old. Note the 14.4 volts on the controller and battery monitor, the Iota charger (when I have 120 volt hookup) is bulk charging, after awhile it will drop to 13.6 volts which is the float stage.
Man am I pooped! I did it, though; I have installed my solar panels. These are two, 130 watt Kyocera panels. I’m thinking it will lessen, or even eliminate my need to run the generator when I’m boondocking. I will need the generator when I need the A/C, microwave or during bad weather. Tomorrow, I will finish with the indoor wiring to the solar charge controller and battery bank.
