Until this week, that entailed climbing under the deck to get to the plugs. The process became even harder when we put lattice up under the deck. Bill had a brainstorm about the plug situation a while back, and we finally got around to turning his idea into reality. We cut a hole through one of the deck boards and relocated the plugs up on the deck.
Now, what looks like a table on the deck, actually houses the plugs—and there's room enough to store our portable Goal Zero solar charger there, as well. The top of the "table" flips up to give us easy access to the plugs. It looks great, and it's functional. Why did it take us four years to make life easier? That's the only mystery!
