Apple Store in La Jolla

9:11 am:
This morning I have two things on my agenda.

#1. Apple has notified me that parts have been received for the sound repair for my Mac Air. And that I should drop the Mac off at the Apple Store in La Jolla.

#2. Go to 24-Hour Fitness and exercise. There is no doubt in my mind that I am in a depreciated physical condition! And that cannot continue.

For me to go thru the portal between the Ford and Box Van takes a little physical strength. I am able to go thru, but barely.

12-Volt Distribution

7:31 am:
In preparation of running the 12-volt DC lines, yesterday I mounted my West Marine distribution panel.

Also, I mounted the Renogy 40 amp battery charge controller on the same wall frame.

On the kitchen counter side of my living quarters, I need to send 12-volts to the water pump, Nova Kool refrigerator and under cabinet lighting. Also, 120-volt AC to the microwave oven.

The low voltage reading on the Renogy is 
because it is very rainy this morning.

Three Hour Workdays!

8:44 am:
A couple of days ago I was over at John's home. I told him that I was completely exhausted. Terribly tired!

I told John, "The day before I had worked for over 10-hours".

John counseled me. "You should stop working at 3-hours!"

That's what I shall do from now on!

Bench Seat Cushions

7:26 am:
Yesterday, John sent me an email to let me know that my bench seat's cushions had arrived. So, I drove over there to pick the cushions up.

During our conversation, John asked me if I was continuing to exercise at
24-Hour Fitness. I had to admit that I had not!

But I am going to start again this morning. Because of my lack of exercise, I am having difficulty getting myself up out of bed!!

iPad Mini

5:47 am:
Yesterday I installed the cabinet that goes over my Nova Kool refrigerator. This morning I went about moving stuff from a storage box to this cabinet.

That was when I found an iPad Mini. I had forgotten about this iPad which I received as a gift a few years ago when I first signed up with T-Mobile.

I wonder if this iPad can be used to publish my Blog while my Mac Air is at Apple getting repaired?

Cabinet located over Nova Kool.

Olympian Catalytic Heater Controversy

9:52 am:
When I began to live in MsTioga in 2003, I would go on the forum to answer questions about RVing. That was before levelers. Before RV internet connectivity. Before solar electricity.

None of these things were used by RVers in 2003. And RVers were hungry for info about these things. Info that I had from my use of these things.

In 2003 when I posted on the forum about how much I liked my Olympian Wave-6 Catalytic Heater, I was lambasted for being so foolish to use this heater inside MsTioga. Predictions of my death were made.

House Battery

9:07 am:
Last nite I went over to John's home in order to use his electric power. John leaves a heavy duty extension cord out in his driveway especially for me! 😎

Because of the weather, my Yingli 250-watt solar panel has not been producing enough to keep my house battery charged. That is the reason that I have purchased (2) additional solar panels of 200-watts each. This will give me 650 watts of solar capacity.

All of this solar power is only necessary during the depth of winter.

Solar Panels or Cabinets

8:12 am:
My two 200-watt solar panels are ready for installation and are waiting for me over at John's home.

All of my ordered cabinets are also ready for installation and are waiting for me at Home Depot in El Cajon California.

I believe that the solar panels are the higher priority of the two [Link].

Equipment placement

11:03 am:
It takes a lot of my thinking about where to locate stuff before I make a decision. I Blogged to you about some equipment last Sunday. Here is where I've decided that equipment will be mounted:

➜ Renogy solar battery charge controller.
On the living quarters wall above my bed where it may easily be seen.
➜ West Marine illuminated switch panel/circuit breaker.
On the same wall as above but on the workshop side.
➜ Jupiter 2000 watt inverter.
On the floor of the over-cab cabinet.

Wall Paneling

11:09 am:
The time is approaching where I will be covering the walls of my living quarters. I could just cover with plywood and paint it. But that would not be very good looking!

I came across an Amazon site that had tons of tons of stuff using the search term:
Wall Paneling [Link]

Also, a company named GrosFillex that looked interesting [Link].
