  1. If you don't want others contributing then why don't you PM DeanS and just listen to his advice? I don't see anyone being incredibly offensive, maybe a bit pedantic but often that is necessary to clear any confusion, as for bluntness I prefer that to confusion.
  2. Well that's a daft post isn't it? Anyone is free to offer advice on this forum but if that advice is a bit iffy in parts then it's open to criticism, constructive or otherwise. If you make an error, such as you stating an inverter supplying instead of consuming then you have to take the consequences and admit it and perhaps apologise for that, understandable, error, but not everyone will understand that error and may get confused and act on it. It's an open forum.
  3. That's the nature of this forum, if someone makes an iffy statement then someone will jump on it. Anyone of a sensitive nature maybe ought to avoid it. ETA: Maybe everyone isn't stupid enough but some might be.
  4. Diesel! Plus it was an older 13.8v alternator. Not a big jolt but quite uncomfortable, enough for me to jerk my hand away For a while I was a bit nervous when mucking about with car batteries.

  6. I did once get a fair jolt from a car battery while the engine was running, maybe 14v or so. ETA: Through my hand, not my tongue!

  9. That does sound a bit excessive, the two of us can fill up to the 450lt level in 3 weeks but that is a worse case scenario never using any other toilet and doing a flush every time, even after a wazz.
  10. Being water based I find polyurethane sealant easier to use and finish off.
  11. Your basic problem is an under sized holding tank.
  12. Wrong way round unless he has a left handed prop.

  14. Decent size holding tank and a tenner every month or so for a proper p/o is hardly going to break the bank. Unless you're a pauper.
  15. OP, just to clarify, if you want the protection of a residual current device (RCD) also known as residual current circuit breaker (RCCB) then N/E bonding and earthing the hull is essential. Don't try to do things on the cheap and finish up with something unsatisfactory. Mains electricity is lethal.
  16. We have the 4 cyl version (LPWS4) no decompressors and it has a PRM 150 box.
  17. No smoke and no smell and it runs quieter and smoother + it seems a bit pokier.
  18. Slightly off topic but when we dry docked up the Runcorn Arm our hull was festooned with freshwater mussels, last docking before that was on the GU near Leighton Buzzard, none there so must have collected them somewhere on the Oxford/Thames/K&A/Shroppie. Also did a quick dry dock at Charity Dock near the Ashby not a single one! Same last week when we dry docked near Skipton. Wonder what makes them abandon ship?
  19. In which case no fuel additive is a good idea. Hi Alex A few days ago I accidentally doubled the dose and finished up with a 100:1 mix of 2 stroke and it's running even better!
  20. He would need to do the tests again with current models and if he did agree to do it who would pay him?

  22. Your last tests were 10 or 15 years ago? Is it possible 230v fridge efficiency has improved since then? Fridge efficiency does seem to be at the forefront lately.
