  6. Ask the Navigation Authority. Don’t get stuck ffs. I want to go through in a fortnight.
  7. Starts first time at the moment. Ok. Sounds good advice. Was worrying about starter packing up soon because it’s as old as the leisures. Will do that. 👍 Even better. 😃
  8. Long past that now. When batteries go they go very quickly. 8v this morning. Having to run engine just to work water pump. Even the LED’s were dim. Thinking of replacing my 3x110Ah leisure with 2x120Ah that they’re selling in a local marina for £85 each. I’m on a tight budget at the moment. I lasted such a long time on 3 batteries that 2 should suffice for now. Also, I’d like to get a starter battery as a back up for when this one goes. As far as I’m aware the one I have at the moment is a leisure. But I’ve read elsewhere it’s best to get a proper starter. What would anyone recommend? Engine is a 1.8 BMC. And again, budget price. I’d have thought scrap value of the 3 old batteries should go someway to paying for it.
  9. I know motors will eventually turn slower but never considered they’d burn out. So, thanks the warning. As it happens I’m going away for a week and will replace the batteries when I’m back, so hopefully things won’t get that bad.
  10. My eyes used to glaze over with the talk of batteries but recently I’ve been following some threads that have explained a few basics so well that even I can begin to understand something. So a big thanks for that. The OP asked when do you know you need new batteries: My leisure batteries are now very much on their last legs after 8 years. And I assume they’ve had it from the readings on the voltmeter. The batteries won’t charge well or hold the charge. Highest they charge to are 12.4v They drop quickly to 11.2v Today, when I got in this afternoon they were at 10.7v. it’s not drastic because it seems there’s still enough power for my lights and water pump. But I’ll swop them soon as I can. Plus get a new starter as standby for when that fails. I’m guessing a fair amount has to do with the recent drop in weather temperature. Just like a knackered old car battery that’ll just get you through one more summer but come winter it just ain’t got the energy no matter how well you charge, and simply dies.
  11. I’ll come and do it. I guarantee it’ll be unique and there’ll be nowt like it anywhere else on the cut. Will cost mind. London innit.
  12. I had to sign back in to say : it’s Lancashire! 😃 where you’re shuffling.
  13. Good luck finding any tap on the Rochdale. 🤡
  14. Fisticuffs or tasers. Brill, post the YouTube clips.
