    At that stage mine didn't leak. It started a few months ago and getting a bit worse now. I must make an effort to trace it.

    Re: How to fix wooden patio chairs

    If you consider an oil, I like using the Mad Manny mix of 50/50 Woodoc 30 and Waxol which is diluted with another 10% diesel. I have wood cladding outside which I treat once a year.

    Re: Pure Sine wave inverter choice

    The list only shows grid tied inverters.

    Axpert is an off grid inverter.

    If they had a list for off grid inverters, then Axpert would be on there.

    Defender Re: Defender 110 Tyre Size & Choice

    If you fit a different tyre to the BFG, make sure to fit a tyre with LT spec (light truck).
    It has stronger sidewalls than the passenger tyres. They are a bit more expensive too.
