    Re: Designing a caravan hit a snag.

    The older Jurgens had the table cantilevered. Bracket mounted in the bulkhead and one beneath the table. The arm removes when collapsing into a bed. How urgent is this?

    Re: Transom saver

    Mechanically they work and reduce the cantilevered load but they scuff off all the paint where they mount on the lower unit. On a long trip I would fit one.

    So this problem is much less pronounced on the 4.0l as the effect of a turbo kicking in is not present.

    Re: solar and smallish 220v fridge

    No battery will be a problem. The battery is the device that feeds a constant voltage to the invertor. With no battery the voltage from the PV panel fluctuates and you will pop something. How will...

    Re: Heads, Hearts and Tails

    So I left the jars open all night with paper towel as a covering. The smell is most certainly less pungent and more alcoholish.

    What is the convention for "airing" fresh distillate?

    One thing I thought I did get wrong was the temperature of the distillate. With a jar being filled every 3 minutes I did not have time to measure the temp but I would estimate around 35/40oC.

    Re: Circular Saw Technique

    Hi,

    The saw is handheld and is a Ryobi1 CS-185 with a 2.4mm blade. It is the standard Ryobi blade it came with. So the disk that the cutting teeth are mounted to is 1.5mm and the teeth are 2,4mm.
