Buster’s Spot Duncan, NC - Saturday, July 8, 2017

Buster’s Spot Duncan, NC - Saturday, July 8, 2017
Morning 77 Degrees, Wind WSW at 4 to 8 Mph, Humidity 90%, sunny.
Afternoon 93 Degrees, Wind SW at 4 to 7 Mph, Humidity 37%, Rain Late.

Electric Problem, It was a hot afternoon my wife was making dinner (microwave oven on) I had just stepped outside Buster and it happened, an over current draw, probably had everything in Buster was drawing power. I had turned on the rear air conditioner, we had been keeping it off because it makes a funy sound after a number of minutes of operation. So there was microwave oven, rear air conditioner, front air conditioner, portable air conditioner, four fans (not much draw), refrigerator (maybe on or not) and maybe electric hot water heater if using hot water cleaning dished.

Recovery, check breakers and all we had no shore power coming to the right side outlets, and the house batteries were in a high discharge. Microwave oven not working, all (four) fans no longer work. After a while I realized the refrigerator was drawing down the batteries thru the inverter. One of the ground faults also was popped so that was reset. Losing daylight, so I got out extension cords and got the refrigerator running on that so now the batteries do not have a high discharge. The roof air conditioner is working. We do have some 120 volt lights and they are working of the left side receptacles. Our 12 volt lights haveonly battery as the inverter is also the battery charger.
