We have success!

After battling a leaky roof for several months, I'm glad to report that it is fixed! we've had a lot of rain the past couple of days, and it appears that all the leaks in the main room are now fixed. We even made improvements to the awning around the bedroom door and the front of the conex, which also appears to be bone dry this morning.
Another great thing, the electric car batteries that have not been charged or really used all that much for the past two years, have been plugged into the new panels for a few days, and even with all the clouds and rain, they are showing improvement. When we first went live we were at 12v flat, and now we are 12.6v. It doesn't seem like much, but they are large batteries on a trickle charge, especially with the clouds. It we can get a week of sunny skies I'm sure they will get to 13.5 in no time. Which I'm going to wait for, before I lookup the rest of the battery bank, just to make sure that these batteries are going to perform right.

Now some coffee this morning, and to get something done...
