  1. I use a multi tool...and a stack of blades..it's like a power chisel and can undercut the bitumen.
  2. I use a battery multi tool......and slice with the blade like a power chisel to remove the blacking. You need a lot of blades as they heat and melt the blacking. Then.....flap wheels...... Sorry....but I think you're back to square one.....
  3. Just seen a news article....that although the UK is ok for petrol supplies, a sixth of diesel comes from Russia with suppliers running short. The government is supposedly pondering a diesel rationing system in the near weeks. I wonder how that would affect us...🤔
  4. Is it very old ? Thetford have a three year guarantee on much of their range. It's not a ....return to base.....they will send an engineer canal side....they did with me.

  8. Sorry.... My phone is very limited and I didn't realise it had already been posted. Please ignore.... 😳
  9. I've just put a link in this section...to a comprehensive article about overplating. You may like to read it....
  10. This makes for sobering reading. https://www.iims.org.uk/the-dangers-of-overplating/?fbclid=IwAR3yy0NuKt6avkd4q1AdINCFeClXg5SwKOh95AGOevLpRZz1YTblGRBEFA0
  11. As I said previously.....I was ok for about five week on the Thames.. couldn't feel better....but then became very ill with a helicobacter infection.... commonly caught from contaminated water. This was confirmed by hospital tests. Interesting this article just appeared: https://www.mylondon.news/lifestyle/food-drink/youtuber-feels-ill-after-catching-21709117
  12. I can't be definitive about this but : last year I did a Thames run for two months. Towards the end I was getting horrible acid indigestion and reflux. It got worse and I was chewing my way through boxes of Rennies. When I left the boat the problem carried on until one night I was ambulanced to hospital with a bleeding ulcer. I stayed there for a week while it settled and tests concluded I was suffering from helicobacter pylori...a nasty but common infection often caught from contaminated water. It is the most common cause of ulcers. As I said....not definitive...but timing wise I have my suspicions. 🤔
  13. My thoughts exactly... You don't want your engine compartment filling with carbon-me-backside. I'd put my hand over the outlet...and blow...and make sure it's sealed...
  14. Silly I know ....but : it says charging and AC available.... I've got a manual landline switch over i left my battery charger in circuit when i was not on the landline....and turning the Inverter on...starter charging the batteries. Trouble was...I was charging them from themselves...so it read 14.2 volts....but they were dying !.
