  1. I've stopped at bridge holes on hearing a horn a few times then wait ages for the boat to appear ,I think a few use the horn to give them selves right of way.
  2. When I fitted my new plastic tank I put all fitting thru the top as was the tank it replaced.seems less chance of contents emptying into boat .
  3. Are there any rumours of supply improving,just switch over To my last bottle 3.9 propane which will be ok for about 2 weeks,so no panick yet,but was panicking before setting off on this 4 week trip and had to do a drive around looking for refills
  4. Some cookers come with different jets and instructions how to convert. You change the jets in the burners and I had to remove control knobs to access adjustment for flame hieght on low or simmer setting.all settings given in detail in the instructions
  5. Didnt spot that one,just assumed mobile use but it is specific about not using in boats a caravan. I suppose it's because of boats and caravans can be very close to each other and interfere with nieghbours maybe
  6. I have been googling this subject because at some locations I need to go outside of boat ,ok with warm sunshine ,to get any internet or calls. There are booster for cell phones but ofcom made some illegal ,so they are for sale online but you need to check it's the legal type .if advertised as open to any network it's the naughty type and can cause interference. Legal ones are setup for the network u use. I dont have one so not sure there any good ,and my info is just what i picked up with 1/2 hours googling
  7. Once the stoves lit you will be looking to remove the excess heat that soon builds up ,I'd allow good air flow in bilge area ,if it gets any water down there it will be easier to dry out.if using laminate or carpet flooring u could fit underlay first
  8. When I had a dish I set it up then glued a spirit level bubble (just the glass part) so that you can quickly adjust the up/down part then a compass to find south then slowly turn dish till u hear the tv come alive .didnt have signal finder .

  9. Since freeview upped the power and closed analogue tv ,I dismantled the freesat as simple omni antenna and amp lifier work well enough ,and simple to just raise pole ,and return if moving to new transmitter
  10. Drop down on the weaver ,a nice relaxing week
  11. Theres 2 sats very close to each other and easy to point to the wrong one ,so will show a signal on ur meter but wont decode
  12. Once the engine circuit has pressurised by domestic pressure then it would be only leak slowly when it over comes pressure cap maybe
  13. If your engine heating coil in the califlower is pin holed then water pressure from domestic supply will over flow in engine coolent circuit The picture shows pipe and container connected to engine coolant tank ,why i think the above is happening
  14. Without looking in manual for bvm ,the voltage reading showing in pic is the upper and lower alarm settings,cant remember how you switch out of setup mode but when out of there you use the up down arrows to show volts amps state of charge time left to go etc .i only ever bother watching volts amps .
  15. Looks like the bvm is in setup mode ,thats not showing actual volts or amps or soc readings
