    Alde boiler just for heating water

    Our valve is under the bed where the hot water tank it. It will only shut off the radiators except the bathroom one like yours.

    Alde boiler just for heating water

    We have one of the Aldi slimline boiler with a inverter tap/ valve and just use the clarifier for hot water summer and both winter time. It would be good to have a 3 way valve so in the winter when we pop up for the day we can have just the heating on and no hot water. so 1. hot water and heating 2. hot water only and 3. heating only. In winter when we stay on the boat if we have the heating running 24/7 and cooking a gas bottles last about 4 or 5 days.

    Toilet Paper

    Hummm adds a whole new meaning after reading this, Put another log on the fire. 🤣 Paper and a macerator is ok in small amounts but when you forget to tell the children that you can be picking it out for ages.

    Has anybody had their boat repainted here? Are there problems? Im looking to get my boat repainted next year sometime and this is one of my local yards.
  6. Its got to the stage where my boat ned a repaint, the existing paint has oxidised quite badly. Ive got a few quotes to repaint my boat from local boatyards, Gloucester area. Are there any recommendations for painters further up Tewkesbury area. One quote has been to take back to bare metal, windows out and spray with a 2 pack spray. Is 2 Pack Spray getting common on boats compare with traditional painting methods? I expect there will be loads of questions I will ask.

    Oil and service items

    I get my oil 25ltrs a go and filters from euro car parts, usually wait for a discount code get it even more cheaper.

    Rear hatch locking

    Im brave and very stupid. I will never learn. Plus she don't read stuff on here. I couldn't cope if she hasn't been fed for a few days. Bear and sore head springs to mind.

    Rear hatch locking

    No matter what you put on it if they want to get in they will, putting a brick or something through the window. I have a rottweiler that stays on the boat when im on it. God help anyone if they get in when the wife is there

    Rear hatch locking

    Im going to start to use the rear doors and hatch more on my semi trad, its easier to get on the boat that way, what do people do/ use to lock/ secure their doors from the outside.

    Semi trad pram hood

    Thanks from £1300 is what they told me. I thought it was going to be a lot more. I expect it will be when I finished with my wish list. Ive asked for them to bust and price it up for me. Acrylic roll up front window. Thinking about a small frame to to cover the sliders. That’s where we seem to get a leak.
