Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

I am slowly getting the wiring sorted. Having had to move the solar controller once. I was not happy with the position so I have finally fixed the ply backboard to the back wall of the wardrobe with Gorilla grab adhesive so there is no going back now. I am trying to do the wiring in such a manner th...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Initial tests on the heater worked well. After a few false starts, I managed to prime the heater and get it running. The first thing that was obvious was that without the silencer the exhaust was quite noisy. Not too bad with the silencer on though. It certainly throws out some heat. I set the therm...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

No time to worry about adding weight. I said I thought about a Chinese diesel/air heater. I had been watching one or two on eBay for a week or more https://i.ibb.co/1ZFK8pT/IMG-1275.jpg Well here it is 8-) One I had been watching, priced at £84.99, with only a few days left to run, went down 7% to £...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

I don't think its the screws and glue in the build. Its things like the PVC sheet. It seemed like a good idea but even at 2mm thick, it's still quite heavy. and there are 10 off 8x4 sheets (plus I could still do with another one) The wood that strengthens the hatch area's, even the lined heavy duty ...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

After a quick visit to Zildjian to pick up the free PIR sensor an afternoon fiddling about to test if it actually worked and when it did the best position to fit it. I will need to seal the wiring hole with a blob os silicon but it works a treat. Thanks, Zildjian. https://i.ibb.co/vvKLnj3/IMG-1273.j...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Yes, I am trying to link them together with a triangular corner piece. When camping I do most of my cooking on a Cadac. It plugs into the camper gas supply at the back left corner so I am looking to be able to still cook outside come rain or shine. As it is a homemade awning and I have not been able...

Re: SKarosser Copy Scratch Home build?????

Cheers Zildjian, I will be over Saturday morning. I started with the best of intentions this morning but the promise of a hot day prompted me to fetch the awning pieces out again. Each time they come out I make small modifications to get them to go up how I want although there was a slight problem i...
