The Ranch Lakewood New Mexico 54 degrees partly cloudy to clear with a breeze & sunny to 78 degrees. The solar panel battery charging has not bee performing correctly and voltages and charging amps have not been correct. The voltage on the controller remote display indicated higher that the Xantrex power inverter. The inverter also has a three stage battery charger for the batteries and the twelve volt system. Found two problems the ground stud loose and screw broken, positive connection to the batteries was loose wire pulled from crimp terminal. Repaired these and voltage and amps are now normal.

The Ranch Lakewood New Mexico 50 degrees sunny & clear all day to 80 degrees. Work day for the co-op building & safety committee that I am chairman of until the co-op semiannual meeting November 2. I also am the "ding a ling" for tonight and tomorrow night. Four PM happy hour, gathering in the ranch house to socialize and a tell jokes or stories along with announcements of what is happening. Who came in that day someone can announce they are departing the next day, we sing "Happy Trails" to the departing. That more formal part starts 4:30 and lasts 10 to 50 minutes with the longer days more stories (and longer stories).
