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...

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

Zildjain, that would be most acceptable. I would love to pop over one weekend to fetch it. At the minute my truck needs a good clear out as I think I have an injector not firing correctly and a longer run might burn off the crud. From what I have seen and read about tilting solar panels it could mea...

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

I have had the solar panel off after marking the position of the left-hand angle. I have gone with a similar idea to be able to lift the panel up to clean under it. I might be able to convert it to a tilting panel later. The angle has 3 fire door hinges fixed to the angle framework surrounding the p...

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

Slow progress Framing the Solar panel and its fixing rails with wind and intermittent rain. The batteries finished up in the original box, at least for the time being. I still need to fit the clamps and vent tubes but they are in their positions complete with a trip switch to the pair and a trip to ...

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

The solar panel was bigger than I envisaged but it is supposed to supply 320 watts so all that power should keep my 5-year-old motor mover/leisure battery topped up during daylight hours. It has been showing signs of getting past its best before date as without a daily solar top-up from my 40-watt p...

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

Well, that's one pair of tambour doors fitted. With a stop end at one end of the track and a snail track at the other, you have to think carefully about what to fix and when! :roll: The parts for the tambour doors came from Kiravans in a sort of kit form. The straight track had an extra bit of depth...

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

There is a din rail screwed to the mounting board ready for some more breakers. They should come with the second display unit :oops:
It will be interesting to see just how well they perform when fitted. I have a snail track for it to curl up out of sight when open. 8-)
