Undoing the Solar

Where the wires go

Today’s project was undoing the solar wiring so I could remove the charger and solar controller.

I have a pretty high IQ, but I am brain dead when it comes to electrical stuff.  Probably because I don’t want to know how to do it.  My dad did wiring, my ex did wiring, and somewhere along the way I internalized the cherished belief that I didn’t need to know how to do it.

Now I am doing it.  Sort of.  I’m taking pictures of every connection and making labels for the wires to remind me what goes to what when

The solar controller

I start putting it back together again.

I also got the other bed removed.  Tomorrow I’ll remove the water heater and water tank and label more wiring.  🙂

Everything is photographed and labeled now, so it can be taken apart.

Stored in the spare bedroom until time to put it back together

Tomorrow's project

    I wouldn’t know where to start on a project like this – and no one would want me to touch theirs. You amaze me with your skill and talent. Karen in OR


    • Thanks, Karen. I really appreciate your kind words–and your interest.

      I don’t know where to start either, but I have learned that if I can get started on a project, I can usually muddle my way through it. Of course, I usually end up doing a lot of things over after I do them wrong the first — or second — time.

      Anyway, it’s an adventure! 🙂
