I would love a pic of wiring from panel to controller Ive delayed for a while trying to figure out neatest most buletproof way to wire it.

Most all the wiring is hidden making it bulletproof.:grinpimp: I have an open plenum between my top and roof. Panel wires drop into the corner of the top, out the corner floor, through the open plenum, down the rear pillar into the controller. The controller is a Victron MPPT Bluetooth by the Blue top Optima in the little upside down blue box.

Being stuck here at home is killing me but Im getting some long awaited project done. Replaced the 100watt solar flex panel on the roof today.
IH8 removing VHB tape:bang: You know you are screwed when you call 3M engineering about removing VHB tape and they tell you is make not to be removed WTF!

I have used VHB tape to attach active RFID tags to equipment in the oil field. Once it cures, the best method is a sledge hammer. I have successfully pried one off using a screw driver with a sharpened tip but it was pretty tough work.

Its spilling coolant in the reserve tank. And have observed that coolant level is getting down in radiator too.
first i changed its radiator cap, but no good sign.
now going to dismantle whole radiator, will service it, will check the water body, hose & connections, and T-Valve.
it was going v. good and never reduced coolant level. now suddenly started but no bubbles in radiator. lets see.

Here. Now.
Went to Tahoe again.
Saw this very nice 70 that parked next to me at Squaw on Saturday; think it is @MTN77 IIRC?

Then I came out to it buried in snow at Northstar the next day. What a great feeling it was being able to just back out of that mess while everyone else was out there with shovels digging their cars/trucks out. :p

Rear brake job and headed for Big Bear.
Had a great time with the fam and pulled my buddy’s Rubicon a couple times as he was trying to keep up. Late in the day we found a solo driver in a Tacoma Trd stranded on our steep climb out. We turned him around and lead them to an easier way out of the mountain.
Finished it with the best Mexican food on the Mountain.
