  1. Thanks Nick What's the answer then? Just leave and monitor? Just not a nice thought thinking that the floor is damp underneath me
  2. The reason I've saisd I don't think it's a leak is the base plate is 'moist' to the same degree through all different places. So right at the front of the boat (bedroom) where I can access it from the front step. Inside the wardrobe, abutting the bathroom and gives me access to the shower drainage (that's not leaking) and then right at the back stern steps. There's not one place which is more damp than the other. As the boat also has a natural tilt back as my water tank is often half empty(!) if it was a leak, I also wouldn't have thought it would 'spread' to the front of the boat?
  3. Hi Everyone Hope you're as well as can be. I'm just wondering if other people have 'damp' bilges, in the living space of their boat? I have two access holes to under the floor where I can check in the bilge for leaks etc. One is in the kitchen steps at the back of the boat and another is under the false floor in the wardrobe at the front of the boat. I was doing a check today and noticed that the steel is damp in the bilge. I took some video footage, wedging my phone down there and there is some rusting and the steel under flash light looks quite, erm, 'moist'. There's
  4. Maybe! Different boat these days now though! Different boat, same problems, as always haha
  5. Yes, that's what I was hoping actually.... I'll have a look around!
  6. Thank you everyone for your responses. It looks like a screw has come loose/come off my fuel injectors. That's back in place now, but now it's the headache of cleanup! Thanks for the tip about fuel polishers as I'll give that a go. Even if I have to bottle it first and then take it to them as I think we had around 200-250 litres!!!
  7. Hi all Wondering if anybody can help. It seems my entire fuel tank has empties in my bilge. At some point between having my engine on this morning and switching it off! I noticed yesterday quite a bit of grey-ish smoke from the exhaust and was a bit concerned and now this has happened today. I didn't even think the contents of the fuel tank could completely empty. Will I even be able to use this fuel now? (Circa £150!) My engine is a Canalline 52, have had issues with injectors last year but the boat/engine is only two years old. Apparently there was a know
  8. Hi Alan, Ah, that's really useful - thanks! And I'm glad I'm not missing a thermostat from my system! Well, I am but you know what I mean!
  9. Thanks Robbo, that's what I read too earlier on. Just wonder how to keep it on and cycling like Alan does as we have no thermostat fitted to ours - it's on or it's off!
  10. That's what I don't understand Alan - there is no room thermostat on this one! It's just switched on and off via the Webasto control panel??
  11. Should they be limited though in terms of how long they're used for each day? Or can I leave on for hours at a time? Any issues with safety to the unit doing that?
  12. Cheers Robbo, It's the themo top C that we have fitted - just the small 5.2kw unit
  13. Hi everyone, Just a quick question about webasto central heating... firstly, are these units built to be on for long periods of time or are they more 'delicate' and should be only used for a couple of hours each time? I've looked on the Webasto site and can't see anything specifically related to this or my instruction manual. Also, fuel usage seems to be a bit of a mystery too with just minimum and maximum amounts. Also, our Webasto has no thermostat or anything so what ambient temperature are these units set up to by default, if applicable? It must heat the
  14. Thanks for all the responses!
