in good shape - brunnhilde part 14

I conduct another round of tests in using the Honda EU2000i generator to power Brunnhilde's Kerstner roof top air conditioner. I want to determine once and for all if it is worth keeping and how reliably the Honda generator can power it, in Eco mode. While I am conducting the test at near sea level, I have to be aware of the reduction of the generator output at higher elevations.

bikini top for brunnhilde

Sure, Brunnhilde loves to lounge around topless. But with increase awareness of harmful sun ray I gifted her a bikini top. That was three years ago and she worn it a lot.

fresh water capacity - brunnhilde part 9

The Comet pump parts finally arrived from UK via Royal Mail. It arrives faster (about 5 days) than my Sub-Prime orders from Amazon because Amazon wants me to pay them the Prime annual fee. For free shipping on qualified items that totals at or above $35, Amazon now holds the shipment until the very last days knowing the USPS Priority mail they use will get the package to me in just 3 days, instead of what Amazon's ETA of 10 to twelve days. I have observed this many times now.

These are the last parts to complete the convertible auxiliary water tank project.

in good shape - brunnhilde part 13

Yesterday I set out to do a bit more testing of powering the Kerstner AC with the Honda EU2000i generator. I have only use the Kerstner once while camping so my experience with it is quite limited. I wanted to have a better impression of it before making the decision to throw out the water and the baby.
