I made some simple candle sconces for the cabin. Easy to build and will add a nice touch I think.

Those sconces are a wonderful design, Ontario Lakeside!

PS) I just want to add here that you're really getting to be an outstanding videographer. Your close-ups (some of them were probably a real pain to get, I'll bet) & all your painstakingly meticulous editing are way more instructive for viewers than your average YouTube tutorial. Heck, they're even better than a lot of the professional How-Tos.

My solar setup is almost complete, Since using volt lithium batteries have you found good reading material on the batteries? There are a few parameters settings that I would like to understand on the Victron and how they relate to this particular type of lithium battery.

In example
Absorption voltage
Max absorption time
And equalization voltage.

I use

Absorption voltage 48.3
Max absorption time 3hours
Equalization is not required for lithium.

Of course Creeky is the authority on Lithium.

I guess I should also then ask what is float set at.?
Since equalization is not necessary and the software does not allow zero to be entered did you just leave at 48v? (I am looking over settings in demo mode, i am not aware yet if the values can be zeroed out once actually connected and communicating with the controller.


Thanks

Hey OL
Good video re. the Tankless Ecotemp Water Heater. In the vid you say its temp at the moment, but you will move it at a later date. The ecotemp 5L is only for outdoor use, right? you wouldn't move it inside?

we installed the water heater on a outside wall. Some people do install these indoors but Im not willing to risk it.
