Sky after 8 months of use in all weather conditions

Did a little maintenance today on my Sky unit.
Love the easy cleaning.
I was amazed how nice it still looked after 8 months.

Here are some pictures of it after 8 months of use.

Are those photos taken before or after maintanance ?
What did you do for “maintenance” ?
It looks like a unused Sky :+1:

These pictures where taken after some cleaning.
Should have taken a picture before. But only thing I did was taking the dirt of with a damp cloth.
Especially the UV and light sensor.

I was also surprised to see how nice the battery compartment was. It looks brand new indeed.
Really nice materials :ok_hand::+1:

After a long cold winter outside, my sky looked as good as it did on day 1.

Now if only the AIR would come with a solar panel … hm…

Difficult: the Air it self shouldn’t be exposed to direct sun…
A disposed (*) solar panel would be needed…

(*) as I’m not a native English speaker… is this the commen wording for something attached but mounted a (small) distance away from the main unit?

The word you are looking for is ‘remote’… a ‘remote’ solar panel would be needed for the AIR.

The Air needs a solar panel with a cable to the base. Maybe a Solar Panel V2.

Thanks for the quick replay
I would never have used ‘remote’ in this case.

I prefer “detached.”

But… technically, ‘detached’ means… not attached… like a detached garage.
This SOL/SPA for AIR would ‘have’ to be attached somehow.

Thinking of making it make sense to non-native english speakers. :wink:

Not necessarily detached. Just a solar shield to put over the Air, and the solar unit on the outside of the shield, much like Davis does.

Happy forum anniversary, @dsfg!!!

I perform a cleaning maintenance every month on my SKY and it looks exactly like yours. Looking great since installation back in Aug 2018.

Just as the garage is detached, it us connected electrically. The solar panel would be detached and connected electrically.

Hmmm
Sounds like sound logic.

Now you know why I am so screwed up.

I’m sitting at SFO gate 102 on my phone when I should be enjoying the sea air.

It wasn’t even that dirty. :grinning:
