    TIG Welder Throws The Trip...

    So I have a B40Amp in the main fuse board, then in the garage 16A commando plug wired as a ring main to a B32Amp and a B6Amp for lights. These never trip when the 2.2Kw compressor kicks in.

    Replacement for a NATO hitch on a Defender

    Another options are receiver towbar mount with shackle attachment e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RECOVERY-HITCH-TOW-BAR-RECEIVER-TOWBAR-4X4-5T-BOW-SHACKLE-FASTPOST-WARRANTY-/222275871004 Or I have used something like https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-recovery-Swivel-Shackle-DB1322/321077261238

    Euro Car Parts

    I've used them a couple of times for non LR parts and there is always a large discount code clearly displayed on their web site or if not you can easily find one with google. But yes these codes are usually only available if you order via the web site, this can be for delivery or for collection next day at their local counter (which is what I did).

    Loss Of Power

    Blocking off with a blanking kit might be an MOT fail now (depending on the vehicle)
  8. So Just a small camper van then 😉, I did half own a volvo BM10 coach as a camper, it was 12m long and a deck and a half and was about 17t GVW and then towing a 6.5m trailer. For a cheap inverter you can use a computer UPS unit, some of them run on 24v, we picked up a 1200w one with duff batteries (not needed) for £16. You just need to snip off the alarm buzzer and put some external battery leads on. A cheap way to get a pure sinewave inverter.

    Synthetic Rope

    Not directly as that was a comparison to SK78 not SK75 (which the listed rope is made of), if you look at SK78 it says " SK78 has the same strength as SK75 but offers significantly improved elongation and creep characteristics than it’s predecessor. " So adding the SK78 improvement and the SK99 improvement you do actually get my statement

    Synthetic Rope

    SK75 is 4 generations old, SK99 is 20% stronger and but offers significantly improved elongation and creep characteristics https://www.marlowropes.com/dyneema-technical-information

    Running an Electric Cool Box in Camp

    So that Model States an energy use of 73kWh/Year (it's in the picture of the standard energy efficiency label) Some calculation so this is 0.2kWh a day or 200Wh a day (* there are some gross assumptions here but about voltage conversions but Wh sort of removes that) So https://www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/helpandadvice/technicalhelp/solar-power/ States that a 50W panel generate 300-350Wh a Day in summer (less in winter, but then less cooling would be needed in winter)
