After you get them rotated & balanced do you take it easy for the 1st day or do you jump on it & spin them....romping on it will cause it to move the tire on the rim and that will put them out of balance

I got most of my components from Arizona Wind and Sun, 5 years ago.

http://www.solar-electric.com/sobomp25ampc.html

There are many other options, many with better pricing. A few months ago I added a thin film 68 watt Unisolar panel(epvl-68) that I bought from Amazon.

Blue Sky 2512i controller( wish I bought the ix model)
Blue Sky IPN pro remote ( battery monitor and voltage adjuster)
Deltec 500 amp shunt.
Kyocera 130 TM panel.

I bought the 8 awg cabling from panel to controller from

http://genuinedealz.com/

The Kyocera has a junction box. The unisolar uses Mc3 cables. I bought a 50 foot 10 awg MC3 extension cord, from Amazon.

To power a small 12v compressor fridge indefinitely, 60 watts in a sunny environment will do it. Using an inverter on a residential fridge, make that 80 or more watts.

Oh no I take it very easy on the van, I'm starting to think that maybe my drums are out of balance. I do need some suspension work however most of the vibrations seem to come from the rear end and mostly the driver side more so then the passenger.

I certainly refrain from trying to spin the tires because I don't want to spin the outer race of the overrunning clutch in the transmission.

Not so much responsibility, but how over inflated everything is and how underpaying jobs are, I mean I make around 60 bucks an hour but that's only when I am called in, which rarely happens.
But it's a part of life.
