  1. Mine did this the other day, i took out the main fuse by the battery and cleaned it.been fine since.
  2. He needs to tell Bob to use more than a bucket of water to rinse out the tank.
  3. And a Toilet / shower block.
  4. Toolstation do a fibreglass repair kit for £8.40.
  5. I use a Maplin MSW A12HQ to power my under counter fridge and it works okay, but the fan runs for a second when the motor starts up.
  6. Hello, do happen to know the bulb type, I have 1.2w bulb in my Barrus Shire warning lamp and would like to try a larger bulb but can't find the same type online. Thanks
  7. I use this as well and find it pretty accurate.
  8. RLL Steel Boats have a large crane.
  9. Thanks for the reply.As i was having to fit the link myself on the Sterling i thought i would fit one on my Maplin 1000w A12HQ to see what happened. If it blew up no big deal as i was getting the Sterling.Anyway fitted a wire between neutral and earth in the plug and switched on,no bang just the usual buzz.Plugged in the socket tester 3 lights, the live neutral reversed fault had gone.Tested the RCD with a Meggar mft1552. 14.4ms the time, so i am happy with the outcome. Thanks again
  10. Hello, could anyone please tell me if the 1000w version of this inverter is neutral earth bonded. On the Sterling website it say's the pure sine is capable via a link, but i can find no mention of n-e bond for this model. Thanks for any help.
  11. I used the plug and socket after it was recommended in a previous topic on here, as a safe and simple way of ensuring only one source of power could be used.
  12. I have been loaned a Megger mft1552 to test the earth and rcd.
  13. It has a 240v fridge and tv.
  14. Thanks for the replies Could you recommend a inverter that does not cost a fortune as the boat is only used for holidays.
  15. I have a 1000w inverter from Maplins fitted in the boat, after reading on here about using socket testers to check if the wiring is correct i plugged one into the inverter and got the above error. I select where the power comes from by using a lead and 3 pin plug from the RCD and plug that into the inverter or another 3 pin socket that is connected to the shore power connector. I was thinking of fitting a 3 pin socket next to the inverter and wired to the inverter with the leads reversed to give the correct polarity. is this a bad idea. Thanks for any input
