I have a solar inverter and charge controller going in as part of a solar project.
The inverter/charge controller has an AC 'in' port that can be used to charge the batteries from the grid or a generator.
There is an AC 'out' port used to power the subpanel for critical loads from the PV...
Our shower mixing valve had very diminished flow, and stopped 'mixing'. It was either all hot (like boiling the frog), or all cold (like Pelosi's heart).
I took the hand shower attachment off and found what looked like O-ring remains in the showerhead. Removing them restored the flow, but...
I've been looking at a standby generator for the place up north. I already have an MEP-003a that can feed through a panel interlock - when I'm there. I can get it to use the self-fill pump to draw off my home heating oil tank to run.

Hello NES. My balky System 2000 furnace has killed another inducer. Dead river up there in NH can't even get someone there today to 'diagnose' the problem.
I know this is the problem.
Energy Kinetics won't sell parts to consumers. I have no heat up there.

We had to put our girl Lola down tonight. Liver cancer, and it finally shut her down.
We got her as a rescue, and she lived over 15 years.
Golden Retrievers are good dogs....and she was a GREAT Golden Retriever.

Has anyone gotten any modern outdoor solar lighting they're happy with?
I'd like to add some, but would rather do it right than end up with crap I'll have to replace in a year. 110v isn't anywhere nearby where I want to put it (remote gate with surveillance)
stuff from truelumens.com keeps...
We have obtained a replacement refrigerator for the customized cabinet 'hole' in our kitchen, but it has white panels, which do not match the stainless/wood in the kitchen. Rather than pay the $450+ for the 2 panels from scrub zero, does anyone know of a source where they could be made/cut...
