Re: Nicro Day-Night 2000 solar vent repair
Well--Another 6 months or so has passed since my last report and our Solar Vent keeps going'n going, now about 3 years since my last re-repair. The fan does seem to have slowed somewhat but I suspect that may be a function of the aging of the rechargable battery which I shall finally replace after the first of the new year. At three yers it's done its duty, no? (FWIW I replace all the batteries in all the battery power devices on the boat, save the Solar Vent battery, semi-annually, on or about the first of January and the first of July--or sooner if need be--to ensure that everything works without fail as, when and if needed and to avoid the possibility that a battery might deteriorate and damage the gear during intervals of disuse/storage.)
N'any case, I shall provide another up-date in six months or so, or, sooner if the Vent gives out (my original repair lasted about 40 months!). We'll see, eh?
