    Little Things You Hate

    My parents used to get at least a telemarketing call per night and always while they were having dinner. Amazing how it stopped after I answered one and asked the caller what colour underwear they were wearing. Turns out there is more than one 'do not call' list and the unofficial one works better

    Item: Gripsport bike rack - 2 bike Location: Canberra (no postage as it is heavy and would cost a bomb) Item Condition: fine. It's gripsport and as far as I can tell they are unbreakable. There are 2 small modifications though: (1) rear crankholder has been cut down to suit bike with lower bb...

    12v wiring headache

    Thanks for all your help. It's certainly not professional quality but I'm pretty happy with the finished product. In due course I will probably carpet the inside of the box to make it look more finished but suspect that'll have to wait

    Sweet! Getting closer. About to hardwire the lead for the fridge as I don't trust a cigarette lighter plug not to fall out on dodgy roads. Am I right to think that the 2 prongs are the negative and the other part (on the right) is the positive?

    12v wiring headache

    This is finally starting to take shape - busy at work and cold nights have slowed things down. So Im back here again hoping to pick the brains trust. I've opted to run the earths in the trailer back to the auxiliary battery - figured it wasn't much more effort and given the trailer lives...

It will be fairly conveniently located and should have a grand total of 3 loads drawing off it so not...

    12v wiring headache

    Thanks. I think it makes sense. Will check in the morning when I have drunk slightly less. I Don't know much but I'm pretty sure electricity and booze are an interesting combination. I'm not running an inverter at all so that makes it easier - simply running 12v led lights, 12v fridge and 12v...

    Also watch the bastards if you have an 'agreed value'. Your premium will go up and the 'agreed value' will go down. Its amazing what changes they can slide through in a renewal notice

    The price is obviously the thing stopping me jumping straight in. Thay said, the deeper discharge offsets that significantly. Battery will be in my camper trailer so no issues re bonnet temperature
