    Where to dump rubbish/building waste?

    And also explains the proliferation of fly tipping.

    Where to dump rubbish/building waste?

    Skips have got really pricey of late. I recently hired three one after the other (should have hired one much bigger one but anyway...) and they were over £160 a time, and that’s in The Midlands. I’d imagine London prices would be higher.

    Elderly Drivers

    According to The Telegraph HRH Philip might be sent on a Driving Awareness Course. I’m sure that’ll go down great with Mr Grumpy.

    Forum Finances Summary 2018

    When my late step-dad (born 1911) was in his 20’s he used the train/tram to go to the end of Sarfend Pier. It was the first time he’d seen the spinning-disc anti-rain thingy on a windscreen. He asked the jaded and bored driver whether it worked well. The response was “Look at it this way mate. If a seagull shits on here it flings it straight back up where it come from!”

    Watts to Amps please!!

    Like I said aaaaages ago... a 1kW PSW inverter should be fine

    Ammeter wiring

    If you do decide to use it then I’d remove the shunt from the back of it, fashion a mount for the shunt to be located close to the battery, then run small cables from the shunt to the meter.

    Brexit 2019

    We’ve never had an E-Type but did have a V12 XJS, and know several proud owners today. As you say, a wonderful car and streets ahead of the competition. Our ‘Sunday Car’ is now an XKRS which is everything the XJS was, but for today’s market.

    Mastervolt Charger Problem

    As it’s a 12-100-3 I believe that makes it a Chargemaster Plus. I’m therefore intruiged as to where this 16.22V was displayed as from looking at the user manual this unit doesn’t appear to have a voltage display. So what is “the LED”?

    As it’s important I thought it worth repeating.

    Joss stick or a cigarette should do it.

    Plug in Galvanic Isolator.. which one

    ^^^^ what Chewy said.

    Ammeter wiring

    Do you have an inverter? Or any other heavy loads?

    Best rust treatment for Hull floor

    Short cut lengths of mains cable work well. They don’t rust and they’re ‘rubbery’.

    Ammeter wiring

    My suggestion would be don’t use it, sorry. Long charging cables from alternator to ammeter then from ammeter to battery, plus it’s probably only a very low capacity - what’s the reading on the scale?

    Another Lithium battery thread

    Ahh ok. Not heard it called that before.

    He obviously hasn’t read the spec, or he would understand that that’s nonsense. Exactly so. Now get him to tell you how long that temperature rise would take.

    Another Lithium battery thread

    The hold-in current of a relay is generally a lot less than the pull-in current so you could implement a little timer to drop the voltage once it’s pulled in if you wanted.

    Watts to Amps please!!

    Divide by 10 to take into account inverter losses. So 63A in your example.

    Watts to Amps please!!

    Yeah, a 1000W inverter should run a fridge just fine. As the fridge compressor is a motor you really should ensure it’s sine wave although others seem to cope just fine with msw.

    Vactan again here.

    The whole point of the AYBC spec is that they won’t go open circuit. However, you can check them in seconds with a multimeter on resistance range.

    A Timely Reminder

    We’ve recently had some plumbing done upstairs at home. After the first joint the smoke alarm went off on the landing. It was only then that I realised that I haven’t checked it in over 20 years. It’s mains powered but I guess could use new backup batteries by now.
