Our site generator went off last night about eight-thirty, the generator just shut off. I had fueled it earlier so that was ok the twelve volt gauge on the control panel was zero, that was not good. Called for support and they were here in forty minutes. Even before going outside I started Buster"s generator for power. Troubleshooting found the engine alternator failed, that was replaced. But there was wiring issue that did not give us a warm feeling.
That fix lasted all night and about eight-thirty this morning again the generator went off. Again I started Buster's generator and called support. He said "will be here about eleven with another unit". I went outside and made the trailer unit ready to travel by disconnecting our electric cables and water hose. I lowered the light tower. Later when he came and parked the "new" to the site unit and pulled out the onsite unit. Now latter in the day the "new unit is working good.

Using double side tape inside the glass to hold magnets on the glass inside windshield and gluing magnets to the shade then placing the shade magnetized to the windshield is what I have been reading. This type supposedly will not require the use of a ladder to install the shades. What i did yesterday required me up on the ladder to make the installation.
Well I am trying the suction cups on the outside, so far so good. Still not the best for setting up at a new location. We are also using the bubble foil inside the windshield as Buster is looking into the west setting sun. The sun is the longest time on the windshield each day, "we have sun". As the sun screens are laying directly on the glass, the wind does not seem to be a problem, today we only has wind of moderate speed.
