My truck was held over for a second day appearance at the Big O tire store. I guess they loved my truck so much they just couldn't let it go. Without the use of my truck my accomplishments for the day were extremely limited, but my time for relaxation was unlimited and extremely lengthy.
One of the things I had planned on accomplishing this summer was lightning the load that the Arctic Fox has to haul around. I'm not sure how well I'm doing with that because even though I'm taking things out I'm also putting things in, so at this time it's hard to tell if the Fox is losing weight, gaining weight, or staying about the same. I think I've lost a little weight based on the fact that I got rid of my giant desktop computer, which weighed about 40 pounds, and the two 21 inch screens that the desktop used.
I've been giving some thought to how I want to hook up the two new solar panels on the Bronco. I'm supposed to use MC4 branch connectors but with the memories still fresh in my mind of what happened last time I used branch connectors, and one or more of them ended up being defective I'm hesitant to go that route again. So I'm leaning towards going low-tech and putting the wires together the way I would put any other wire together. After having assembled and disassembled several MC4 connectors I don't see how their connections are any better than a butt splice or a regular twist on wire connector. Especially since there under little or no stress and the most Amps any wire would have to carry is 20.
I guess I would call today a day of relaxation and contemplation. When my truck is around I usually have a desire to go do something, but without it I had an excuse to sit around and relax, as if I actually need one.
