I last watered the batteries on Sept 18th and noticed no appreciable increase in water consumption. I watered the batts again yesterday, and after six weeks water consumption was normal once again. And this is after being in full sun in the interim.
I am ready to recommend the eternal absorption approach a success for people who:
are running lead-chemistry batteries
are deep-cycling those batteries
using a temp probe to adjust charging voltage
I was trying to be discreet so it’s a weird angle. This pickup was parked behind a telco in Roseville, and appears to have one of those red phone/power line balls in the back seat.
I like old bridges, so went out of my way to cross this one. The ice-related sign made no sense until I made it across and read the historical info. It used to be the footbridge to the world’s largest artificial ice plant (ie, refrigeration-made, not cut from naturally-forming ice). When the plant was dismantled in the 1970s (?) the bridge was moved by the city of Roseville to preserve it.

A monument on the BLM where I was camped out Carson City. I don’t know if it’s a claim marker, a headstone, or what. I think it said SIDECER when I saw it in person. Hard to make out in the pic.
