  1. I hadnt seen mention of a fridge, merely a replacement for a 700w unit. The Victron he is quoting is 650W, so fairly close. Or is his son bringing a 240v fridge with him?
  2. For less than £400, I'd buy Victron.... perhaps this one, with the VE Direct cable, and bluetooth dongle. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Victron-Energy-Phoenix-Inverter-1200VA/dp/B08PPTPR89/ref=asc_df_B08PPTPR89/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=500982087357&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=175790939652095271&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9046455&hvtargid=pla-1320243016020&th=1
  3. I asked a similar question not long ago: I also discovered that Ryobi do a 40+ bar model but, at the moment, it seems to be out of stock in the EU/UK. I've watched a few Youtube videos where the 24 bar units seem to do a reasonable job, and the 40+ bar units a better job. Alan might be right with his primitive "finger over the end of the hose" method, but I would rather be pulling a trigger than holding my finger over the end of the hose, and I will be needing something that can pump the water out of the canal. There are lots of primitive ways to do many of the things that we do, but this is 2022, and there are better ways for many/most. You are obviously very selective over which reviews you read
  4. Nobody else seems to be having any trouble understanding. What are you struggling with? Perhaps we can find a 5 year old to help you
  5. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  6. What is the actual model name of the inverter charger. I used to have a Sterling Pro Combi S, so know a little bit about them, although it didnt have an LED readout of the voltage, so probably yours is a different model.
  7. I dont think there is such a thing as a standard toilet seat. I once bought a toilet seat from B & Q, thinking they were all the same shape and size..... not a chance!
  8. Hence my last sentence!! However, it isnt pointless, and nor is it madness, if it is the only option at the time. As far as i know, the electricity that reaches our homes enjoys a variety of voltages on its journey. Your logic would suggest that is also pointless and madness, whereas, in reality, it is merely a means to an end.
  9. I, like many boaters, don't have "mains", but I do have 230v AC. In fact, the chances are that it has an AC to DC adapter so, with the right gear, could be charged directly from the boat 12v supply.
  10. I should have said "main advantages to me" I have a 230v supply on the boat, which i use for lawn mower, strimmer, vacuum cleaner etc.. 😀 😄
  11. The main advantages are size and no cable, (less clutter and freedom of movement ). I'll be charging the battery on the boat, using the inverter. Looks like Ryobi now do a 40+ bar one, although finding one in the UK isnt so easy right now.
  12. and what if they hadn't read the replies? I think we often see people who have just joined the forum check back a week or so later, and cant believe the speed with which they got a response. Entirely possible that the OP has decided to give it a week, then check back to see if anyone has answered.
  13. Strewth! I use my boat to escape Radio!
  14. I dont really want a 240v pressure washer on the boat, and am not motivated to bring the one we have at home, so I've been considering one of the rechargeable battery operated washers, with syphon kit, (6m), to use canal water. However, on closer inspection, they only seem to be 20-24 bar as against 100-120 bar for the home 240v version. Does anyone have any experience of these things, and are they powerful enough to do some boat jobs, as against getting caked on grime off a patio or similar. Something like this?: https://uk.ryobitools.eu/garden-tools/outdoor-cleaning/pressure-washers/ry18pw22a/ry18pw22a-3/?gclid=CjwKCAjwv-GUBhAzEiwASUMm4iZ_qUJ29QMZe1OymF2BAHVqmqAgbCORkOe_w_eGf3EKP5BiqnPiYxoCZBUQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
