  1. True. We would rather, because we are fortunate enough to be able to, pay for the year all in one. I visited a pet shop that sold birds. The ones on the lower level were going cheap. The African Parrots were offered on a credit system. I asked why, the owner said they are on Higher Perches!
  2. Could never see the advantage to CRT preferring monthly DD. Perhaps I read it incorrectly.
  3. Is that 5% or 2.5% either way. It’s not due until the end of June so have a little time to get myself settled.
  4. A bit harsh if you’re being serious with your derogative remark. Just wanted to know when to pay, that’s all. As an add on general question, we like to pay a full amount annually, I realise the ‘pay in full discount’ is diminishing at a rate of knots, what is it at presently? I have read somewhere that CRT would like us all on monthly DD payments. Not my preferred way to pay, is there plans to charge over the amount for annual payers?
  5. As I’ve been asleep for the majority of the last twelve months or so, could someone answer this for me? Last year because of the first lockdown we were awarded a months extension on annual license. Do we know if there’s a months extension this time around? Much abliged.
  6. Thank you all for you suggestions and help I think I’ve done it. The usb charger is defunct as is the adaptor for the TV. There is power to the adaptor (light) but nowt coming through to the telly. Telly is now a mains only telly. I have bought a new USB charger and it works! Job done. Electrics have always confused me as does terminology. My concentration is almost non existent. I may come across as stupid and flippant but I’m not always.
  7. My assumption also. The bottom slot is slightly smaller.
  8. This type of socket. Red in top, black in bottom shows, engine running, 12.6. Volts. However, Red in bottom, black in top same voltage but with - sign. Wired correctly or not.
  9. Thank you for that. It’s what I feared. I am working in the saloon at the bow. The cables coming from the stern are both brown. One has a reddish line. I am presuming the reddish lined one is positive. (Only just seen the red bit after rubbing the cable with the wife’s wet finger.) H&S! So I have to ‘assume’ I have the cables wrong way round. In addition, the TV 12v connector adaptor had a blown fuse. Replaced fuse but still doesn’t work. Has it bu*gered the adaptor? Is it repairable. The USB multi socket charger does not have an accessible fuse as far as I can see. Is that irrep
  10. Got the socket working. If........I have the pos/neg incorrectly wired up will a table light work but blow the USB charger and the 12v connector to the telly?

  13. I have an issue with 12v power to a socket. I have retired a socket and it no longer has power to it. Other 12v sockets aok. I have had a multimeter, pictured, for ages. I can never remember how to work the dammed thing. It’s a simple task but hey ho! The black lead goes in the black socket. (I can work that one out), First question where should the red one go for ascertaining power at end of cable. Where should the dial be set? I realise this is very simple to some, but it’s me.
