it's all about load, storage, and capacity.
i've only ever done simple lighting and small inverter system.
but a mate wants his wee bus fully independent, so have to figure out a system that will
take solar, alternator, and generator options

Nice thread rescue!

So many get side-tracked by little inconsequential details and then threads go south.  We are lucky to have such a straight track avatar about.

why cut? just drill.
25 x 400 auger in the gib about 150 below the dwang and drill through the wood on a wee angle, end up with only one hole  below each dwang and use a rod to get up the wall, easier to plaster than a patch and the wire less likely to
get damaged in the future

eek brace and what now?
i remember about 5 or 6 years ago now we had to get a cable down a long underground duct at an appartment block in taupo. there was no draw wire and it was too long to get a cable through, the guys went down to the pet shop and bought a mouse hahaha tied fishing line loosely around its tummy and stuck it in the duct and shoved a rag in the end, i never thought it would work but sure enough the mouse ran to the light at the end of the tunnel complete with nylon attached and is now the pet of one of the guys,,,,, watermark appartments..... mark the mouse still alive and well

Time to change from tool talk to numbers.  soo cited

By next Tuesday, I have to complete a full set of financials for the quarter to flick to the bank, two stock takes (well I don't do the counting as such but I have to check and sign off then do my bit), do around 10 more interviews and close off month end for two companies. 

I only have 4 working days to achieve all this as Monday is a holiday and with the stock takes and month end - that stuff can't be started until the Tuesday.   eek    Plus everything else that is just normal day to day stuff.

It is fun though but yikes to how busy I will be.
