  1. If you are starting from scratch you should seriously think about a 24v system using forklift batteries and 24v inverter. Uses half the amps. Can be easily charged using a truck or bus alternator.
  2. They are very similar probably wouldn't make any noticable difference, whats more important is what controller are you using? Will it take panels in parrallel, double the amps.
  3. You have to have at least 10 years of payments to get any pension at all. Due to spending 35 years abroad I had to top up my missing 6 months to make 10 years so now I get £44 a week.
  4. Planes hit birds all the time. An 8 kilo Goose would do a lot more damage than one kilo of plastic. Once they have tested drones hitting engines in the labs and discovering they only do marginal damage then there will be no more airport closures. Mind you it is a great well timed distraction to take joe publics mind off of Brexit.
  5. The most ridiculous thing to all this is 1 horsepower is 740 electrical watts. Thats 53 amps charging your 12v battery. Running a 30 odd horsepower engine at only half a horsepower is madness. Why cant someone invent a simple diesel to 12v electricity machine, they would be a millionaire overnight.

    You need a Pure Sine Wave inverter. Most fridges dont like modified sine wave. Even though you bought it from a store and payed more inside it is the same as all the others.
  7. An alternator has 3 static windings inside and uses 6 diodes to turn the AC into DC. If some of the diodes have burnt out you will get lower output. The only way to test this is to open up the alternator.

  9. I would buy 6 Large 1000ah forklift batteries they will last for years and deliver the current you require. Better still I would buy 12 and use a 24 volt inverter.
  10. As for updating your car insurance automatically you must be super rich or just dont care. Every year they send me my renewal with an updated quote, we have 4 cars/vans, and of course it has gone UP. I get on the telephone and ask for the best price etc etc and without fail they come up with some excuse to make it CHEAPER. Last year after taking the advice of the telephone sales person I changed the insurance on my 10 year old Sprinter van from 3rd party to compehensive and our multi car policy dropped by 50 pounds. That was 150 pounds less than the bill I had just been sent. We pay about 750 pounds for a GL420, VW Golf, Sprinter LWB and Vivaro
  11. Sounds like a Mycoplasma infection. I breed turkeys and they get it and have the same symptoms you describe. I have to use a syringe to remove the fluids from the swollen sinuses and then inject 1cc of Tylan 50. In the UK this is a prescription antibiotic used almost universally on all farm livestock. With a course of antibiotics they will be fine.
  12. Parrafin is the same as 28 sec heating oil currently available for around 32p a litre before vat 5%. There must be a way to get some delivered for heating. It is also the same as Jet A1 so any local airport could sell you some.
  13. Read the small print. Please note that before every outing, the appliance must be run on mains operation to operating temperature. Once this is done, you can operate the fridge off your 12v battery for the duration of your journey. This will maintain the pre-achieved temperature until you arrive at your destination when you need to revert to a 220/240v supply to maintain temperature. It is NOT a 12v fridge. its a standard 240v fridge with a little 12v cooler that will not work well enough on its own.
