  1. Thank you. The generator is a bit excessive. It's a 3 cylinder 1100 cc ! That's why I'm on here, trying to get my head around it all 🙂
  2. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge. I was informed that a higher amp alternator is better as you do not need the engine running for longer periods. It seems I was misinformed.
  3. Good afternoon all. I'm hoping someone can help. I believe my alternator has passed away so I need s new one. It is,was, a 70 amp, receipt from fitting in 2014 shows Alt 6039 alternator A127 R/H 12 volt 70 amp. My batteries, X 3, are fine still and they are- Exide er 650 142 AH 12v My relay is - Durite 120 amp Battery charger is Waeco Perfectcharge IU1512 (I believe this is suitable for one leisure bat only.) I'm presuming for my battery bank the alternator is/was not powerful enough to charge the bank, (I'm aware it would if engine left running for s very long time.) I was thinking a more powerful alternator but not sure what to go for. I will be replacing the battery charger which is good when when on shore line (24/7) but not up to it when out on the canal and using generator to power it. I hope people can help. Regards, Sean
  4. For a piece of flimsy Chinese plastic, I disagree. Apparently
  5. No, it's from a reputable chandler 👍
  6. I've found somewhere that sells them for £25 but currently out of stock. I'll call them Monday to see if and when they'll be having more in.
  7. It's a new trend. I 3D printed it myself.
  8. 😂😂 😂 I have considered that and may do so. Cheers 🙂
  9. I could, then everyone could afford them and I won't be ripping people off.
  10. Great idea. I won't buy one, I'll make one out of an old bean can I have which I was going to use to make a carburettor for my uncle's second removed cousin's aunt.
  11. I see you're into photography. Nice photos. Here's mine. https://500px.com/p/christiller?view=photos
  12. It's still a rip off regardless. Not only B&Q but almost anywhere. There's not enough competition when it comes to narrowboat accessories so they put the prices up because they can. Also Thetfords are made in China. It's still a cheap piece of plastic. Not worth the money. Made in China. 😄 Okay, I'll try my best
  13. I wouldn't be asking the questions if I could !!
  14. It has started to look grubby and no amount of cleaning will bring it up nice. It's also starting to bubble in places. Using the spray, I can, using a fine wet and dry to smooth it off hopfully give it a new lease of life. At the end of the day, it's a piece of plastic and they're asking far too much for a replacement.
