  1. Setting no 1
  2. I should do. I'll try tomorrow. I'm just a bit concerned that the charger is playing up.
  3. No. Yes
  4. I've just switched the charger off for a couple of minutes, switched it back on and it's charging at 14.4
  5. It's showing 13.35-13.4 Ok. Thanks.
  6. I think I've found the problem. I'm using an inline pump placed in the waste from inside the cubicle so I'm not using the original pump. The bilge is bone dry. I'm really surprised how clean the water looks It look like drinking water when it comes out of the hose. Now it's only a complete rip out of the shower!! thanks for the help.
  7. I've recently fitted four of these on my boat. I've set my Victron charger to the lead acid setting and I've got the smartgauge 03 overload come up on the display. I originally set the charger to the gel cell setting and it took two whole days to get from 75% to 90%. I am currently on a land line. I have done a factory re-set on the smartgauge. Any advice is welcome. Regards Steve P
  8. I bought a satellite dish with all sorts of stuff for £65 (odd). Satellite finder, free view box and loads of wonderful things.
  9. I think I'll wait till it gets warmer. It's a very big tank, so it could hopefully be condensation. Thanks all. Steve P
  10. It isn't insulated, but thinking about it, if it is empty then it wouldn't be as prone to condensation. Now I still don't know if it leaks.
  11. Thank you.
  12. A friend has just told me that I could get some sort of bladder to line it with.
  13. That's what I was hoping. I'll have a look at the weekend. I could probably get my head in the inspection hatch.
  14. Morning. I think I've found the problem. The stainless water tank could have a leak. Is there any way of lining it? There's an inspection hatch with reasonable access. I think it would be a bit of a mare to replace it.
  15. Good morning. I have been following a thread on the DBA forum about a possible problem with some widebeam boats being vat exempt due to the fact that they are liveaboard boats. A well know company have been using the wrong dimensions to enable the boat to qualify for zero vat. Can anyone clarify the situation please.
