“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you
will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
(Philippians 1:6, ESV)
When an RV’s air conditioning (A/C) unit starts, the compressor draws a huge amount of current for a fraction of a second (~50 amps). This inrush current makes it difficult, if not impossible, to run an A/C on a portable generator. If the inrush current could be reduced to one-half, running the A/C becomes possible even using one’s inverter and batteries! (Contact me if you want the technical stuff! 🤣 )
Several months ago, Bruce read about a new device that could be installed on the A/C that would cut the inrush current, (called SoftStartRV). An RV electrical expert tested the claims made by the manufacturer and posted his findings and a highly positive review. Soon, an RV components company, run by fellow full-time RV’ers, began selling the SoftStartRV (TechnoRV.com).
Over the course of our 18 months living full-time in our home-on-wheels, we’ve continued to make improvements that allow us to do the work the Lord has called us to do. Full-timers each have their own travel style. What works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another. We’ve found that with the solar panels and inverter we installed last year along with other improvements, we can move from project to project and comfortably stay just about any place we are allowed.
As Bruce was installing the SoftStartRV on our A/C units (see picture above), he reflected that just as we work to improve our home, the Lord is working in us to perfect us every day. If we allow Him, He changes us so we can be His tool to accomplish His work. It is not usually a sudden overnight change, but a gradual day-to-day change.
When we reflect back over the course of our lives, we see that we have been transformed in remarkable ways. Each of these small changes slowly adds up so that we will be completed “at the day of Jesus Christ.” 🤠 🤗
