Daily Snap #5

A day in the life of a full-time RV family


I ended up spending today working more on the first of our new product lines and honestly, I am so excited for it. We decided we are kicking off our new Digital Nomad lifestyle with Media Processing. In other words, we sort through the vacation, or whatever, videos and photos that you have collecting dust, to find the usable footage or photos, color correct them so they all look the right color. Then, put it all together so it is in a nice viewable format for you and your family to enjoy.

Today was supposed to be the day that I finally got the last solar panel installed. Yes, I still am not done, but I have excuses.... It only takes about an hour to install one of these panels but the Lap Sealant needs at least 4 hours to form a water resistant skin. So I need at least 5 hours of no rain to install 1 panel and it has been raining or a good chance of it every day.

But that's only half of my excuses.

Also... It is very helpful to do this job with a partner. You will see in my Solar Install video, that's coming soon to a YouTube near you, exactly how these are installed, but they need to be set down on the outlines you draw, so they all stay straight. I guess if you don't have any concern for ascetics, you could skip this step altogether.


So, I need my new install buddy but she

had to go take some real estate photos, leaving this project to wait some more. There is more rain coming tomorrow. Plus we need to go dump. Then we need to go scope out a new place to nest for a couple of weeks and I would really like to get this inverter installed before we do that.


Stay tuned, I will be working on the solar install video as soon as the inverter is done. I will just post an update after the last panel is installed. I can't wait to get everything moved over to the batteries and start seeing what this system will actually do. So far, running just DC power, I can go through 2 days of rain and still have over 85% of my batteries left. Which was completely refilled by 2pm the next sunny day. And that was with us being surrounded by trees. Unfortunately, I have no idea what kind of a load the AC ( not air conditioning) will have.


That's all I got for ya.

Once again I thank you for reading and we will talk to you all tomorrow.
