PAINTING BATTERY BASE
We have 16 house batteries that I want to rotate regularly to keep them healthy. It's like rotating your plants in the window, all sides need exposure to the sun.
Owen, always wanting to help, was soon up to his elbows in paint. No problem as it was an easy cleanup with water.
I have 4 platforms, each a different colour.
Tomorrow we will attach the wheels and then place 4 batteries on each dolly. Rotating the batteries will suddenly become very easy without any lifting. Must find a few more jobs for Owen this week. We don't get free labour up here very often.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
