I assume, since I'm seeing this in February, that the cold weather is keeping the window shut and causing the problem. I'm guessing you also don't have a ventilation fan. Opening the door will provide much needed humidity in the winter. A slightly open window in warmer weather would probably solve the problem.
An open door is probably the best solution. (Although I would still opt for my other two suggestions as backups). Unless someone is seriously ill, it shouldn't stink up the house.
You could consider a signal booster, if the signal is there but weak a larger antenna does help a lot.

So I'll likely have to purchase satellite internet service, as the area is pretty low population and the lay of the land doesn't offer long site lines to towers. Maybe another network would work, we will see down the road.
Although I work in the IT realm, I'm not a big fan of new tech, especially the constant bleeding of money for the endless upgrade cycle. As long as I have enough internet access for information and a little entertainment value I'm good. Having a phone on me but turned off which has a signal would be handy if I hurt myself while felling a tree or a mountain lion or bear decided to take exception to my presence.
On a modern charger most of the time you can even select that you're charging a motorcycle battery and it will tune down the amps a bit. Most modern chargers also have a desulphating option, it takes some time to do it but you can rejuvenate older lead-acid batteries with it and squeeze an extra year or so out of them.
James Freyr wrote:Yes you can. A 12v charger can charge any 12v battery. The difference is your scooter battery is 7ah (amp hours, for those reading who may not know) and a car battery is hundreds of amp hours, so it isn't going to take very long to charge the scooter battery compared to a automobile battery. If the charger is an old analog style where you turn a knob to set the number of hours to charge, put it at the lowest setting. If it's a new digital charger, it should know when the battery is charged and will stop charging. Over charging makes the electrolyte liquid in the batteries boil and it just kills the life of them, then they lose their ability to hold a charge. If it's charging and you hear fizzing like soda pop, the electrolyte is boiling, so stop charging.
One more note, is the age of the battery in question. If this scooter battery is 5 or more years old, and it's a lead acid battery, it may just be time for a new one. There are interesting techniques I've seen on youtube of revitalizing old lead acid batteries by dumping the electrolyte, then filling with a epsom salt solution, and getting many more years of life out of them. I have yet to try this myself, but the information is out there.

You would probably be surprised at how many hams get ruined by folks that have studied the processes.
I've killed at least 25 hams and I learned from some of the best masters in Spain.
Those do exist but are mostly a fixed kit. Idiotproofness and fully customisable sets are a hard thing to combine.

I hope one day, solar systems like this will be more plug and play. I was surprised that they aren't yet. Green plug goes in green hole, yellow plug goes in yellow hole - most things these days are pretty idot proof. Hopefully alternate energy systems will get there soon as I'm also keen to create a wind generator for the hen house, but not sure how to hook it up.
