Yup, This is WINTER in Southern Arizona !
I decided again this year to get the LTVA Permit $180 for the entire season. Last year was the first year I did that and it worked out well for me.
I am finding that as each year passes I’m am moving less and less. Having the Permit allows me to stay at any of the LTVA’s in Arizona and California for as long as I want.
So I’m settled in here in Quartzsite quite nicely.
Now why does my little guy look so unhappy in this pic !!??
Sure is great pizza there and the company even better !
So far my solar/batteries are doing great without having to tilt the panels. I ‘accidently’ found that out last year when I was somewhere that I knew I was only going to be for a few days so I didn’t bother to tilt them. I discovered I was still getting a full charge by early/mid morning.
So I stopped tilting them and everything is great. Of course it helps that my energy use is so minimal and basically I’m just using the top 10% of the charge.
It’s certainly isn’t a major chore to tilt the panels, however, if I don’t have to then it means one less set-up job.
Other than that I’ve just been puttering around not doing much of anything. BUT this past week I got Visitors from B.C. so I’ll save that for another post.
