    Time to go

    Dunno about that. I've got 8 fingers as well. (plus 2 thumbs)
  2. And how many know that "DNA" is the National Dyslexic Association?
  3. Which is a change from what was announced last night, when only food shops and pharmacies were deemed "essential". "Essential" is a bit of a moveable feast, anyway: when the central heating breaks, plumbers' merchants become essential, and when supermarkets are unable to unload because the forklit's bust, Sir Nibble's job is essential
  4. On the other hand, it can be useful to have a battery bank in the bow, On the trip boat I'm involved with, the bow battery bank, originally mainly for the now removed bow thruster, powers the water pump, tunnel lights, navigation lights and horn. It has its own isolator at the bow, and is connected to a split charge diode at the stern. The lights and horn are switched from the stern via relays at the bow. It works and saves volt drop problems on the water pump and horn.
  5. They don't seem to do that at the Press briefings. Or perhaps reporters are reckoned to be expendible?
  6. My first move would be voltmeter across the GI, with the shore power plugged in.
  7. Mainly the manufacturing : they only managed to make 1200 Tiger tanks, which suffered reliability problems in service. Wasn't obsolete until after the war, though, when the Russians revealed the JS3 tank, which made the latest (6 month old) British Comets instantly outclassed.

  10. The negative supply for the BMV probably comes from the shunt, but I'd expect a separate positive supply to a battery terminal. (My equivalent meter is certqinly connected up like this) Another thought is : where does the engine battey negative go to? It should be to the "boat" side of the shunt, but is quite often found connected to leisure negative, which means that very little of the charging current from the alternator passes through the shunt, which might explain the "---" on the SOC display.
  11. Couple of segments on the display gone AWOL?
  12. ... and if you find CD hard to get hold of, CF will do the job, and is usually cheaper. Oil spec. sheet quoted above does say "not less than the specification"
