I really want to install my new Fantastic vent fan, but it has rained off and on for the last week, including today. It looks like monday at noon the rain will be over until at least Wed night. that would give me about 50 hours of dry 65/45 degree weather. Is that long enough for the dicor lap sealant to setup?
PS> This is about the last project I have until I am ready to hit the road. I just got my 29hl deep cycle battery from advanced auto. It has a reserve capacity of 210 minutes and cost me $79 with core trade in. If anybody else is in need of a battery, they have a $50 off $125 coupon code(online order, pickup in store). I had to add a $2.5 air freshener to get to $125($80ish out the door).
I have done some extensive research on Batteries and the overall consensus is that it is better to get 1 single "larger" battery than two smaller ones. two 24 size @ 140 minutes each will only produce 75% of their combined total, which is 210 and the same as my 29 sized one. Plus they will damage each other as the cells cycle on and off. You will get longer life, save money and get the same reserve hours with a larger one.
Plus get the newest one you can. They had one set aside made in 1-2013. I took my volt meter with me and it was only at 12.1 volts. about 30% charged. that is not good as it is most likely already been damaged. I got a 3-2014 dated one off the shelf and it was at 12.5 V (70% charged). ALWAYS dig to the back and get the newest one.
