I have not received my $5.00 yet.  That is the amount I was told we are all getting.

 I read somewhere (maybe the Fantastic Fan manual) that the best way to control your air flow when using the fan(s) is to open only those windows near you (living room while chilling there, bedroom at night) and only open part way. This forces a decent volume of air to be pulled in to flow over you and cool you. Of course, if it is beautiful weather and you aren't sweating away in a dead calm, the fans aren't needed at all. We open the windows and fan vents and let the air do it's thing.

We also (inadvertently but advantageously) purchased a Fantastic Fan kit that closes in the rain AND has a switch to change from pulling air out to pulling air in. I knew I was buying the rain thing but not the in/out thing. The "in" function gives a really nice air flow wafting down from the ceiling. When needed, we turn the bath fan on low (pulls out) and the living room fan set to draw in and we can "flush" the air through the rig fairly quickly. We did not do the fan in the bedroom. I wanted fewer roof openings and space for future solar panels.

Based upon the battery box dimensions without the slide that PC gave me, you can fit 2 of the lifeline 6V 300Ahr batteries in.  ThumbsUp

(This is with no battery box slide and the AGMs turned on their side)

FYI---But it may not be "new" news for some.   I had emailed PC about the use of a battery disconnect switch.  Earl
answered the question....poor guy is doing double duty I guess.  At any rate his answer was "they do now"!  Starting with the 2017's
All will have a new manual battery disconnect switch?  I guess all the discussions about Parasitic draws with the older models have created change.

300 amps, that will be awesome! SmileSmile  I had them install two 150 watts panels and sent them a trimetric battery monitor with the paired solar charger.  The Samlex panels are kinda middle of the road, not bad but not cutting edge by any means and seem a little pricey compared to others.  So could you do it yourself for less?  Most likely if you are handy and I considered that.  But I wanted it done and ready to go so I had them do it.  I did ask if they would increase the wire size from the panels to the controller to cut down on line loss.  I do not know yet if they did that.

If I'm not happy with the setup I have no problem taking it apart and redoing parts, so I think I will be fine.  The biggest downside is the battery pack.  PC refuses to consider Lithium at this time and they max out at a two battery pack with I am guessing about 220 amphours.  So the storage is the limiting factor, we could add more panels but with no way to store the amps it doesn't help.

Let us know what they say down in Florida.
