Battery Experiment This Week

So, I am trying something out this week with regards to my batteries. What I am doing is seeing if I can work it so that I only run my generator once a week.

How? By not using any power during the week. 

So, here is what I am trying this week, I ran my generator on Sunday afternoon for three hours. 

Then, yesterday morning, after I drove over to my Eastern Home and parked where I park for the week, I disconnected my battery.

Well, after putting the trailer’s front foot down so as to take the weight off of the truck’s back axle for the week.

Sure I have no power in Wanda, but the batteries are charged and I really have no need for the power, as I can function without it during the week. 

After all, I am only there, up and around for a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the evening. Other than that I am either at work or asleep. 

The plan is that Friday afternoon, I will connect the battery up again and then I should have enough power to last me until Sunday afternoon.

Then, I will run the generator again and charge up the batteries. I may splurge and have power next week, as come Friday (of next week) I will be in Banff for my Christmas Break!

We shall see how this experiment works out. 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
