  3. I knew a boater who used all 13 amp sockets so that he could also use his extension leads for 12 or 240 outlets. All his 12 volt appliances were connected positive to neutral and negative to earth in case they got put in the wrong socket. He also had a valve an his water tank vent and a hose adaptor on his filler so at the moorings he could pressurise the system and not need a pump. Some people with active mined are always coming up with "good ideas".

  7. And that is exactly why, if using any mains type plug for 12/24V I advocate NOT wiring to the line terminal.

  12. I imagine not recommended by a competent electrician though if used next to the same type 240v sockets. In this case all sockets/plugs are the same 12v and 240v systems. So could be very easy to blow up a 12v TV without even removing it from the boat.

  17. 🤣 I'm not aware of the term being used instead of the more common term "salary"; but if it is, surely it should be "pay cheque".

  20. Love walking that section of the canal. It is very pretty.
  21. You're better off buying second hand than new unless you have a very specific idea of what you want. Especially if you're not sure if it'll be a long term thing, because new boats usually lose value fast. A second hand bigger boat will be more comfortable to live on, easier to sell and no more difficult to handle overall.

  23. Gosh, that's me in a silly hat in the first pic ... ... and stepping off on the lockside for this version of the picture. If you need a parking spot for D89, I suppose King George V Entrance Lock is as good as any. The water level goes up and down while those pesky narrowboats pass through. And they didn't share the locking fees with us , either 🙂 We pooled lots of pictures from all the boats at the time. TimLewis's are those from HMSExeter's side of the lock.
  24. Connecting an alternator directly to lithium is something that needs a lot of care. I decided against it by using an Orion from the Lead Acid. Someone who knows more than me will hopefully be along to give some help. I dont think the Orion, (DC to DC), is the thing, but I'm no expert. Some use a longer cable to induce some voltage drop..... in fact Heidi uses this technique to fit a 200Ah lithium here:

  26. Good point To be honest, although I don't want 13A sockets for both, I don't think a 12 volt device would have a 13A plug fitted in the first place. Could be wrong I have no intention of using the 12 volt sockets until they have been changed, and even then, largely to USB sockets.
