Got some more but no use in trying. 

Open the window to post, and at the bottom of the page you will seed the image below. Put your mouse on the Other Media(red arrow) and click there.

That will open a box that contains the following and click on "insert image from URL.

That will then open the window below and you simply put the url of you picture into that opening (https://i.imgur.com/Rto6wLel.jpg) and then click on the blue "insert into post"

That is what both Dutch & I did in order to get your picture into our posts. Why don't you go back to the last forum, Test Posts and play with it just a little bit? That is what it is there for and it really isn't difficult with just a little bit of practice.

Even when it is cloudy you will get some energy.  Heavy clouds and rain maybe not much but a little more when the clouds lighten a little.  We have 3,700 watts and that is more than enough during the summer.  Fall and winter when we use the mini split to heat it falls short.  Then we need to use the propane some, especially during heavy clouds. 

Looks good and you will certainly enjoy it.

Randy do you use a generator any?  Due to work location I will be in hot areas during summer months. I will likely be in an rv park but if they charge for electricity rather not use it.

We rarely need the generator.  Maybe 3 hours all of last summer.  Usually because of clouds.  It isn't that hot or humid where we stay.  In anycase the mini splits don't use that much for cooling but a lot more for heating.  Where we stay the daytime temps may get into the lower 90's.  One mini split easily handled that.  Where we used more power is at night for heating.  As soon as the sun set it was jacket time and the overnight lows were in the 40's.  Battery capacity was challenged but it generally held up.  When fall came the heating demand increased and the solar output also decreased.  By the first of November it took a sunny day, all day to recharge the batteries (3,700 watts).  Based on that I wouldn't think you will need the grid or generator much.  We have been getting by with a 2,000 watt inverter and the idle consumption is minimal.   How much is the idle consumption on your inverters?   That may make a little difference.
