What type of work do you do?
Any write up of the solar install?
I am a bit of a working cowboy you might could say. I do ranch design, construction, maintenance and repair. Welding, plumbing, electrical, mechanic, carpentry, hydraulics, Pneumatics, etc. Basically a millright with a cowboy hat. Also have a background in machine shop as well. But basically, if its behind the gate, I do it. On the solar thing....Its relatively simple. If you have any questions on it for taking an interest for your own use, I'd be happy to help. Am on Telegram or you can call or text me if you like. Its not nearly as complicated or as expensive as many think.

My credo
Nothing is so difficult it cannot be overcome by brute force and ignorance =8-)
A real work truck ! (respect) I only like base model work trucks, now I'm old and retired I got lucky and found a really nice 2001 with 2.5L and 5 speed, the original rubber floor mat is still nice and th AC blows ice cold .

Anyway, water pump impellers rotting away and holes in the T-Stat housing almost always indicate failure to change the coolant often enough .
