Re: Cooker

Yep, you're looking for a Dudley double burner with grill. Usually hammer blue finish paint, with white top section and knobs. IMG_20160325_165948478.jpg The original height (for mine at least) puts it about an inch from the floor when open inside - so is is possible to cook inside, but not ideal. T...

Re: Which Solar panel?

Hi John, My setup is an Absorbed Glass Mat type lead acid battery under the passenger seat (this style: https://www.optimabatteries.com/en-us/yellowtop-deep-cycle-battery/d34 ) - linked up to the solar charger, and the alternator when the engine's running. It's done well considering it's age now, an...

Re: Which Solar panel?

Hi, I've got a similar setup with a deep cycle battery as a leisure battery, and standard lead acid as the starter. The 80W solar panel on the front rack (mounted flat) rarely puts in more than 6 amps in the UK, if that helps any estimations for amperage. I've used a standard 20A solar controller fo...

Re: Forum outage and update

Hi Ian, It looks like the old green theme I adapted for the previous forum software doesn't work on the latest version - I'll work on that and see if I can get it back again. Until then - I've set it to use "Elegance" by default, the contrast is a bit better than the default one I think - hopefully ...

Re: Carawagon interior roof covering

Wear goggles when vacuuming or brushing the roof though - looking up into a falling cloud of tiny glass fibres is asking for trouble!

Re: The Miners Standard (Winster, Peak Disttict)

Thanks for the recommendation Rob! We've been looking for a place to have a work camping trip and this looks ideal.

Re: Funeral of Romanyrose

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend as that's the day of my partner's long awaited surgery appointment and we'll be down in Surrey for it. I hope lots of folk and their Land Rovers can, Brad always did love to do things a little differently and filling up Lincoln with old Land Rovers for his fun...

Re: Live Promotion now charging for club displays :(

The attraction of these events for me was a free weekend camping with friends, and the show that went on around us was just a bonus. If it's not a free weekend camping anymore, then I'd probably opt for spending that £20 on a nicer camp site not surrounded by generators and floodlights all night. As...

Re: hot starting problem

Hi Phil, If you do manage to fix it, please let us know how you did it. Mine does this sometimes, but not often enough or for long enough to diagnose. Usually a few taps of the starter button gets it going again. The starter was replaced with a brand new Bearmach one fairly recently, before that it ...
