Okay I've just undone the top and I've tried disconnecting 1 of the main white connectors, I've tried each one alternately but fan works blowing out cold no heat at all. it seems as tho there is two elements, and there are two starts to the element. im thinking just snip on of those little wires? As in photo 3 and 4 thankyou for your advice so what do you think? Greenies been given lol. Thankyou
  10. I know it's not boat related, but I bought a redwing sunfan of eBay for £6 its like brand new, considering their over £100 new I thought it be a bargain but it has no settings, it's just 3 kw, which is too much for my electrics is there something I can do to reduce the out to 2 kw? as in inside wire or something? i would appreciate any advice as it was a bargain lol, but being on a wall stand makes it ideal Many thanks in advance i know there be folks that will say just go out and buy a 2 kw one! but if it's just disconnecting a wire Col
