  5. Travelling on the Trent.

    Hi All, Just some pics of my new boat i bought yesterday which was moored at Basin Lane on the Trent what an awesome river the Trent is me an my nephew had help from a well experienced old hand we just about made it to Sawley Marina but lost the light can't wait for the next leg of the journey
  6. Dobson Boats?

    All very interesting thanks again i have found out that these boats had a steel thickness of 6/6/6mm is this good or bad as the hull survey as of 2013 shows a lowest reading of 4.5mm on base plate the boat was built in 1980 so has lost only 1.5mm in nearly 37 years .
  7. Dobson Boats?

  9. Anyone got any experience with this fridge??

    An update on the fridge after many emails to this company explaining that there fridge does NOT run on 12volt as per advertised i would like a full refund as it is not fit for purpose and getting false promises. I contacted Ebay who authorised the refund it cost me £30 to return this piece of junk and the company refused to reimburse me this so you have been WARNED stay clear of this company they selling faulty unfit for purpose goods i cannot leave a negative feedback as the item has magically disappeared
  10. Anyone got any experience with this fridge??

    Thank you for all the replies very much appreciated the good news is the seller has told me to return the fridge for a full refund just need to find a 12volt fridge that actually works on 12volts now or do i go the cool box route ????

  12. Anyone got any experience with this fridge??

    You think ebay would flag a warning against this company or something for unsuspecting buyers???
  13. Anyone got any experience with this fridge??

    Thanks for the quick reply i didn't want to hear this as i suspected as much i have also been in contact with the seller and explained the situation there answer was try it on 240volt i said i do not have 240volt supply and specifically bought it as it was a three way fridge needless to say they have gone quite now so i think it will be an ebay issue to sort it
  14. Hi All, I have just purchased one of these three way fridges specifically to run it on a 12volt supply i have mounted the fridge in a cupboard with plenty of vents but it seems to do nothing and seems warmer inside the fridge the the outside temperature has anyone got any experience with this fridge any advice much appreciated http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CARAVAN-FRIDGE-3-WAY-ABSORPTION-GAS-12V-AND-240V-40-LITRE-NEW-BY-GLACIER/332346220252?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D45564%26meid%3D4d9825ec6c6449a0b5cbf15e671ba8c3%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D332309387332&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850
