    BM-2 monitor came today, just finished fitting it, and I must say it's a top job looks factory fitted.
    I needed a 200 amp crimp so I made one out of a piece of flattened inch and 1/8th pipe and soldered the 2 cables in. Better than anything you could buy and crimp on. It's working great and I've connected the engine battery positive so it can monitor that.
    Still overcast today

    Has anybody thought about wind power at this time of year. I have a roof mounted wind generator and that will give 5 to 6 amps on a good day

    Had a Rutland 915 on a previous camper it was too noisy was supposed to slow down or turn off in gales it didn't
    I had to get out sometimes in middle of the night and take it down I had to take it down every time I moved
    For the extra power I got wasn't worth it even though I was full timing on Brighton seafront
    I would go for more solar panels & or a battery to battery charger

    I had a Rutland 514 wind turbine for a few years. Its output was quite low but it is surprising how many windy days we get in the UK. Mine was on a freestanding tower about 4.5 metres high, with 4 guy ropes (we regularly use C&CC THS). It is not ideal when wilding, although I have lashed it to a suitable strong post (or similar, including traffic signs ).
    My dream job is to be a sound engineer. I don't know why, I just want to - want to.

    Wind power is more suited to boats where you can put them up and leave them to it.
