  1. I always thought the three outputs were isolated from each other so they can charge three circuits independently with the output load being shared between them? not much point in having three outputs if not?
  2. it seems to come with crocodile clips which aren't really suitable.... one thing about this supplier is they ALWAYS have a sale that ends in a day or twos time - the DFS of the electrical world! Good recommendation above. The three output one is only a little more expensive and gives you future options - handy if you have a starter battery to charge as well?

  4. We always moor in Gas Street, great place to stay overnight, never had any issues plus lots of pubs around so you can untie other boats lines as you stumble back!

  9. now its in i'll only be touching it when changing the fuel filters...
  10. Now this is done, it would be good for me to know the purpose of the return pipe? I know the engine draws from the main feed and returns via this one but I'm not really sure why? does it take more than it needs/can use and returns? thanks!!
  11. Thanks all for your helpful comments, removed the nut, reseated the olive, tightened up and bingo, we have a good joint... no leaks! will keep and eye on it with a drip tray with paper towel in so i can easily see if its no good. but ran the engine for 30 mins and it all held..... so pleased i've done this job - think it may have been leaking for a long time......
  12. the old one was crushed (holds hand up)... used a pipe cutter to get a fresh piece..
  13. Hi All, visited today and was able to sort with all the parts and all the great help you gave.... all connections are fine although my compression joint leaks ever-so slightly.. happy to give it some time to see if this resolves or i need to redo - don't want to over tighten! thanks for everyone who helped me!!!! rob

  18. Just curious reading this thread. If You had a bank of rigid panels laying flat on a surface on a very hot day, if you faked rain on them using a hose would their output go up?
  19. Hi all Still changing the wiring in the engine bay and now turning my attention to the Webasto. This is coiled up behind the board its mounted on, then runs across the engine (cable tied to the fuel lines, then the Alternators cable the other side), coiled up again by the batteries before it connects - probably 2 or 3 times the length it needs to be. All looks really messy and can't be good practice for it to cross the engine due to vibration? I'd like to re-route it around the bay and cut it to length - it'll be much shorter once done but I just wanted to check..... is it all a certain length for a reason? I know the Webasto doesn't like voltage drops so think this can only be a good thing?? Old photos below but they show the query... good idea or not??
  20. I know in an ideal world you'd pump the fuel out, filter and go to containers, but one that just recycles - takes from the bottom and drops back into the top would be better than nothing, be easier and take much less room and less mess? interesting about the aquatic filters.....
  21. I shared a lock with a syndicate narrowboat that had inbuilt polishing. He could turn it on from a switch on the desk - made one hell of a racket. He said he's supposed to run it an hour a day.... the plumbing on that must complicate things, but if its just one you use yourself then after the initial OMG! first use you could keep it manageable?
  22. YouTube just recommend this to me which was interesting....... might be something I'd look to do - good Winter project... would anyone do anything different? I like the suitcase approach!
  23. Bugger, and I've just spent the last week replacing my bilge pump at great expense........
  24. The pressure is on, if i mess this up then i can't show my face around these parts again!
