Nicro Day-Night 2000 solar vent repair-Final Report
Well--It is now 2-1/2 years since making our home-cooked repair/upgrade to our Day-Night Solar Vent (see Post #42) and, as previously reported, other than a slight burp caused by the formation of a little rust on a battery contact after 15 months, our unit keeps on going and going and going, day and night and is now merrily spinning away. Not bad for a $28.00 repair and a whole lot less costly than a replacement. With this I will discontinue reports until when/if the unit fails. (For that eventuality, we have a second spare motor and solar panel stashed together in a vacuum pack bag in our spares locker tho' I'm guessing it will be awhile before we need it.)
