Finally, after a month of work its working. I wanted to build a wind generator to work in conjunction with an existing solar system on my 5th wheel trailer. We spent a month in the desert north of Yuma, AZ on solar alone and it was not enough. Also, I had to build this machine so it could be transported and nothing was to be longer than 8 foot so it would fit into and on an ATV trailer that I am just finishing up. The trailer will hitch to the back of the 5er (see http://www.doublehitch.com to see the ATV trailer). I'm using WindyNations 500w PMA unit and it has been a lot of fun to get this up and flying. We live near Cedaredge, CO and are having 50 mph winds and, so far, not a bit of problem. I've mounted the generator on a 3/8" plate of steel (front of generator is attached with a piece of chain from a garage door opener - rear with a piece of angle iron. The fitting on the end of the opener chain was just perfect for holding the thing down but I only had one so I had to use an angle for the rear. Generator is mounted off-center with a furling tail on the other side. I, at first, tried to use EMT for the mast but it was to light - had to go to 1" steel pipe using an "H" frame on the bottem with guy wires to each of the four corners. I will use it to charge 4 6v golf cart type batteries, I have been using 4 12v deep cycle batteries but they do not provide enough amp hours. Hardest part - figuring out how to build a furling tail. I will try to download pics as soon as I learn how to do that. I do have a number of digital pictures to share. Many thanks to the folks at WindyNation for all their help. Next - I would like to try wrapping 1/4" copper tubing around the resistors and connecting this to a bucket of water to see if it will heat water. I have done this when I was a Scout Master. We used a coil of copper tubing in a campfire connected to a 30 gal steel container and it did produce boiling water.
