    Fluffy

    I would also love to hear your solution to the "wasted" PV generated.

    My plan is to connect an A/C unit to the P/V via a contactor switch?
    Would this work?

    8x15 inch rims

    I'm running 33x10.5x15 tyres but they are on 7in rims which seem to be "squeezing" the tyres.
    I can't find any 8in here in Zambia.
    Anyone know of suppliers in SA?
