  1. Do you have enough diesel? The Webasto diesel pickup should normally be at a higher level than the engine. The first (and only time) I had this I spent ages trying multiple starts with little clouds of white smoke each time. Eventually dipped the tank and realised the cause.
  2. It's the water that is dangerous https://www.fishersci.com/shop/msdsproxy?storeId=10652&productName=23751628
  3. And I'd not worry about drinking a pint of water from a tank treated with Vactan.
  4. The LD50 of tannic acid is 5g/kg so for a average 88kg male they would have to drink 440g of tannic acid to kill them. I would hazard a guess that Vactan is nowhere near 100% tannic acid.
  5. A case of try it and see then. Subscriptions to the commercial mail/address companies can always be cancelled if not successful.
  6. There are a few commercial companies that provide addresses and mail services. Boatmail and Shiptoshore spring to mind. However I do not know how the banks would deal with the answer to the request they make for two years address history.
  7. If it's any comfort mine is the same. Charged by the engine battery alternator, originally through a diode splitter which has now been replaced with a Cytrix Voltage Sensitive Relay.
  8. The trouble is that I now almost exclusively use the free phone minutes on the router. My mobile is on PAYG with auto top up every three months, I now have a fortune in unused credits on the mobile.
  9. You will have to move to another bridge after 14 days
  10. And it works well with a domestic corded phone. I have yet to try a DECT phone on it but I would guess it would work. The disadvantages - dialing out takes a little longer, probably about 10 - 15 seconds before connecting. This is I believe the router switching to "voice" mode. Texts are received using the Huawei router web setup page so you have to log into this to see your texts (no notifications). Otherwise everything is the same as having a mobile phone with the added benefit that in poor reception areas you do not have to go outside the boat and wander round the towpath to make a phone c
  11. Not sure, I use a corded phone. The only way I guess is to try it, Cheap cordless phone and RJ11 to BT adaptor should be achievable for less than £20. It may be a Three only thing as I believe that they use the 4G signal for voice as well as data. We obviously need a telecommunications expert to give us chapter and verse. I only found out because the original three router supplied with their original homefi plan said voice calls could not be made through the RJ11 socket, which made me think it had been disabled by Three and that if I purchased a non Three router and a cheap
  12. Yes, they only disable voice call functionality on their homefi devices
  13. 12 volts, I use a Cello (TV) 12 volt stabiliser (regulator) to power all 12 volt electronics & IT equipment to avoid voltage spikes and to ensure no high voltages from the charging system reach the equipment. It's available on Amazon/Ebay for about £9
