I've been using your Power Nap files to catch a quick afternoon catnap. Works like a charm through a pair of Able Planet noise canceling headphones and my I-pod. I get a 20 minute nap and wake up without feeling groggy. Ready to get back to whatever I was doing before with more energy.

Hey Brian, i just saw your above post...that's so cool. Glad you are enjoying the file(s).

The joke around the office is that my partner who i sometimes see at 6am if we've got some serious admin project to do will beg me before we meet (usually a text the day before) to please NOT listen to my BWE Java-Jolt files before coming to work the next morning...I get talking so fast she can't keep up with my geek-on-speed talk (I don't have coffee in the morning, usually only a social cup with myself at 1530ish)

I'm fascinated by the Procyon AVS. The budget, however, will only tolerate so many gadgets and I just bought a new set of carving chisels, so maybe in a couple of months if I don't find anything else I absolutely have for the 'Liner.

I had been following the AVS technology and market for several years while keeping myself busy and _entrained_ with the BWE files. All along i'd been saving up for the day i would purchase an AVS of some sort. I am very pleased with the results Cari & I are getting from it. A nice quality personal device and my local friends who have tried it are impressed.

On budgets and waiting...the good thing is 1) you have access to some free stuff that will relax and entrain (BWE files freely available online like mine). And 2) Technology gets better all the time. The next model is nearly always bigger bang for the buck!

Thumbs up

The Parkliner folks posted this video at their Facebook page and thought i'd share it here. It has about ~10minutes of Chandler and gang giving a casual tour of the PL factory in North Carolina.

Here is the direct link to the local PBS tv station:
Video: Wednesday, February 13, 2013 | Watch NC Now Online | UNC-TV Video

And here is a direct link to the NC fox affiliate's 2 minute video that was shared below by Ken through another fgrv forum thread.
Enjoy!
Thom

OK, as promised (and requested by some curious eggFamilyMembers) I have uploaded a handful of images with some captions on both the battery/charger area under the street side rear bench, and also the fresh water tank and valve setup under the curb side rear bench.

Here are the images, and feel free to ask any questions.

Battery area:



Wiring on positive side is to a fuse box that currently is housing two 60amp fuses (this is what was recommended for use with the existing 45amp charger). A switch allows viewing of real time voltage at the batteries and is turned off when lid is closed so as to not have phantom load.)

Here is a close up of fuse box area (yea i know i need to plug it in and charge it...this is the reading after using the rig for two weeks of afternoons with fan running and lights in the evening):


And here is a close up of the dual optima AGM batteries:


----on to the curb side 15 gallon fresh water tank and valve setup:


and a close up of valves that allow emptying of tank and system:


Cheers,
Thom

Is this the new Parkliner set up or modifications you have performed?

The only mod i performed is to wire in the fuse box between the two optima AGM's and the converter/charger...after following _the thread_ ... it was a totally easy & enjoyable project.

Thom, thank you for linking me to the pics of your power compartment from other discussion. It looks very different from my current configuration and appreciate seeing another way it can be setup. This is very informative and useful reference. Thank you for sharing!!
