  3. My friend has the box one in his caravan and reckons its brilliant in comparison to the tall thin one which he had in a previous caravan. They have no pilot light and variable flame I believe plus a built in calorifier. In my old boat I had the same as yours along with a solid fuel stove worked well together

  8. That doesn't seem right? Equalise is normally higher than bulk, as I said I had these as leisure batteries for years worked ok but very heavy
  9. I do have LifePo4s when it wasn't popular it was as cheap as chips! Which is why I bought loads of them Since then I have built battery banks up using other lithium chemistry (polymer) which is in my little electric car, I have battery balance boards on them.
  10. The stepson was stopped the other week he works in ground management and was down south, it does happen Graham as you say

  13. I agree with you Ian which is why i took the route I did all those years ago. The full traction route might work for the OP as he will be using it at weekends only so it would have week to charge up on solar. I had these batteries as leisure batteries and they did 10 years plus but were getting tired at the end, the issue for me is they are heavy 12 batteries equals over a ton 24 is a couple of tons and and are big! they will be in I dont know where?
  14. I think I will be talking to Cedric this week, if I do i will ask him about motors for you. You can buy the traction batteries from local suppliers which I did previously, the problem is they arnt that good in reality, plus they are big and gas off hydrogen so have to be vented to the outside.
  15. Yes its defo horses for courses but in your case its the way forward, for Antrepat weekend cruise back to base solar charges over the week
