Wednesday: (01/08) Leftover spaghetti for breakfast. I tinkered in the morning. I fed the cat and gave him some attention. I installed new armrests on the wheelchair. And then I started moving the paving bricks from the pallet in the driveway to the side of the house. It doesn’t seem like I’ll be getting to that job soon. I can’t start until Lou and Dawn finish using the tent for their cleanup activities. Before I finished, we all headed off to return some equipment to La Avanidas senior center. We then went to lunch at Sweet Tomatoes. On the way home, we shopped at Sprouts. Back home I finished moving the bricks and tied the pallet on top of the little car to be returned later. Dawn made some soup for dinner. I finished an electrical drawing and notes for the RV.
Thursday: (01/09) A rainy relaxing morning. Leftover spaghetti for breakfast. We finally headed out to lunch and for an indoor walk. We tried to leave and got a call from Cecelia that she was coming over to talk. We returned the one block back to the house. Again, we departed and tried to get lunch at a Panera Bread but the line was out the door. We continued on to Super Taqueria, Lou and I shared a super burrito and Dawn had a quesadillas. We stopped by a thrift store and a Target store to fulfill Lou’s need for a walk. Back home, I got to work on the RV and removed the old solar controller and rewired the shunts. Tomorrow, hopefully, I’ll get the new DC-DC charger installed. More leftovers for dinner.
Friday: (01/10) It was raining in the morning. Later, I worked on the RV installing a cable from the starting battery to the new charger in other battery compartment and removed some cabling related to the old charger and solar controller. I fried some eggs and vegetable bacon and added toast for my breakfast. Lou and Dawn had spaghetti. Leftovers for dinner.
Saturday: (01/11) Granola and banana for breakfast. I worked on the RV electrical mods installing and rerouting some cables. Lunch at Super Taqueria again. Lou and I stopped by Lowe’s Home Improvement to get some hardware. And then a stop at Sprouts before getting home. I did some more work on the RV. I still need to install one cable and the temperature sensor and then check it out. Unfortunately I ran out of #4 cable so it has to wait until tomorrow's shipment arrives. Scalloped potatoes with carrots and sausage for dinner.
Sunday: (01/12) Dawn’s leftover soup for breakfast. I finished installing the Renology DCC50S dc-dc charger in the RV. I was missing enough of the proper sized cable to finish the install so I installed a temporary larger cable and tested the operation. Nothing smoked but the breaker that connects to charger to the house battery tripped when I ran the RV engine. Further looking at the manual told me that it may be too low a rating. I had gone down 5 amps and it should be higher. I ordered the needed cable and breakers. The cable came just after I tested it. I installed the new cable and put away all my stuff that I collected for the installation. We went to Super Taqueria again for lunch.. Leftovers for dinner.
