Scampy At The For Sale Place

12:32 pm:
Scampy has moved from being in front of John and Mimi's home to the For Sale Place on Lake Murray Boulevard in San Diego.

The For Sale Place is where many vehicle owners in the area show the [Car, truck, RV] that they wish to sell.




1:12 pm:
This morning I went for advice from John and Mimi. We have been friends for 15-years, and they both know me very well.

I had a misunderstanding with a person that I know and I wanted to get some feedback.

The advice that I received was to back-off from this person and let time do its healing thing! 😎


2:21 pm:
I've just made an appointment with Mister Handyman to install my Yingli 250 watt solar panel on Box Van's roof.



3:30 pm:
The guy from Mister Handyman phoned me and told that they would not do a job like mounting the Yingli solar panel. Too much legal risk.

Tomorrow I plan to go the Home Depot in Lemon Grove where there are a bunch of guys from Mexico looking for work.

I'll interview them to find out who knows something about using electric drill motors.



6:48 pm:
I'm at The Habit Burger Grill in the City of La Mesa. Their burgers! Gotta love 'em!

I ordered a char-broiled cheeseburger with bacon! Onion rings. Chocolate shake with very light chocolate.

  2. When You put your single Solar panels on your roof. You might want to configure it to put a second one beside it . At a later time
    In case you have 4 or 5 bad days That might make all the difference for your load factor
    Your comment yesterday about putting a water tank on the attic
    Until you really find a good place when you start building have you checked into a manual hand pump it fits directly on a 5 gallon water container ( jug )
    They do make manual and wireless pumps
    If you've decided not to use the attic. that would be a perfect place
    To put shelves in and door closures.it can be used for a light stuff that you hardly ever use it but still want to Carry
    And if you completely block it in as a cabinet you don't need to insulate the inside of it

    1. Ed,

      Thank you for your idea of a 2nd solar panel for bad weather times.

      A manual hand pump is no where on my horizon, Ed.

      I intend to use the attic for the location of my 26-gallon fresh water tank. Which, by-the-way, has been ordered.

      I plan to put Box Van's water heater in Granny's Attic.

      About insulation. My living quarters will be insulated. I am not planning to insulate the area outside of my living quarters [Workshop, Granny's Attic, etc].

  3. George, Was thinking about your thoughts of putting your fresh water tank in the overhead compartment. How large of a tank are you considering? Water is heavy and a large tank may overload the structure of the box? On the other hand if the tank was up there you would not need a pump to get water to your sink / shower, etc. your system would be gravity pressurized!

    1. Carl,

      I already bought the tank. It's on its way here from Canada.

      It is a 26-gallon tank.

      This tank will weigh only 208 lbs when filled. Box Van was a U-Haul furniture truck rental. And has a gross capacity of 7-tons!

      So, you like the gravity idea? 😎

    1. Squire,

      No. It is not postponed. The welding shop will phone me when they have time for the install.

  6. On that water tank install....up there it makes the rig even more top heavy and also it might be hard to fill it being that high.

    1. David,

      I do not believe that you understand that Box Van was a U-Haul furniture rental truck which carried furniture up there in Granny's Attic.

      It may be hard for you to fill the fresh water tank, David. It will be easy for me.

      Thank you for taking time to comment your concerns for my welfare.

      George
