The AC ran but it made unkind noises when the compressor started, like a TV shifted to 2nd too early with a heavy trailer behind it. The 121.2 line voltage dropped to 119.2 volts. So in my sample of 1 plug with 2 AC units (including my old Niagara years ago) it can work. But don't put any other loads on it and watch the voltage.

I guess I need to put the fridge on propane. How about the heat pump? I assume it should be ok if the AC works.

Thanks for testing...

east coast

In 2010, we took 6 weeks to visit all of the Maritime Provences except Newfoundland ( hurricane season). Best trip that we ever took. PEI was a red mess with the rain and GPS sucks there. In Nova Scotia, Cabot trail was great as was Halifax.

Lol...Red mess, only when it is wet...

I like it here in PEI for relaxing and taking it easy. The city life I'm used to is practically wiped out here, ok maybe 3 weeks here will be enough for me.

Here are some pics I took from yesterday:

My A128S has been very very good to me...

I kidda lost interest traveling more than hour to see more beautiful sites and beaches in PEI today. I am going to take it easy here at my site and relax have lots of ice smoothies. Oh yes the ice maker is doing its job, it made bags of ice to keep my cooler cold for the water bottles, pop, condiments and other goodies cold. While my fridge keeps the temperature at back bottom to -5c. My perfect setup for food and drinks.

I got a new Sony camera RX100 M2 for this trip. I could control the camera's view finder via wifi using my iPhone 5, this will make it easy to take shots when it is in a tripod or stand. It does not have GPS feature so I have to take an iPhone shot to include in the file album so I could reference the picture location.

Also getting this gadget I'm using right now, the iPhone 5, is my constant companion. I update this thread anytime I'm relaxing. It's my navigator and I take hundreds of pictures in any situation I am in. Plus I record some of the conversation of myself sound and video, plus people here.

I have logged lots of video of my trip which I could revisit during the winter months...lol

Ok time to make smoothies....

What part of Nova Scotia do you plan to visit? I'm not far away in Bridgewater, near Lunenburg, which should be on everyone's to do list. Check out Grave's island or Rissers Provincial Parks. Great campgrounds, but also very popular and may be difficult to get a site without booking ahead.

August 13 at Whycocomagh Provincial Park and August 17 at Laurie Provincial Park. I'm going to take a day trip to Sydney/Lunenburg area and hang out there till late. Is there place there I could park my car and I'll take my bike to tour the area. Are there bike paths at Sydney?

I think you mean Sydney/Louisburg area. Lunenburg is on the main land of NS. I do not know of any bike trails in Sydney but is you goolge bike trails for Sydney are there is one that is about 10 mile. It is part of the trans Canada trail.
