Can't wait to clutter it up with empty tins of Guinness..
I was going to put heating in the locker - I’ve already got one in the big locker and one in the water closet.Hi John,
Only thing i struggled with a little this year was when its cold the Quattro cuts charging to the lithiums at less than 5 degrees ( to cold ) our batteries like yours are in a basement compartment.
Make sure you have that compartment heated too.
Ours was only an issue as i have a small drain on the batteries and i leave the 12v side on so i can keep the internet connected to monitor batteries etc..
The batteries depletes over a period of weeks- and i don,t like leaving it on hookup with the batteries on float charge. not ideal for lithium i believe.
So as we had a cold spat i couldnt charge batteries up until i warmed them (i set a tube heater in there)
And its been on hook up since also to keep a small radiator in there too.
I,m now thinking of putting a heat pad on them or something. temp controlled to keep them above freezing so that when you away camping it makes sure you can allways charge them.
Not sure if i am overthinking it as it hasnt been an issue so far as when travelling with the webasto running it seem sto keep that compartment up to temp. just when parked
Think I posted this once before but it's good to reminisce, I was on hire to a maintenance builder Humberstone pulford , at RAF Scampton , and I was digging out bases for the equipment for the Vulcan that was on standby for the threat of the Cold war 4 Vulcan on standby with a direct access to to the main runway, but just remembered wasn't much security, at the time I was driving a International B 125 track shovel and was working at the side of the Vulcan within touching distance , when one of the RAF Personal came across and said can stop and stand to one side, which I did at once, what he didn't tell me was that there was going to scramble the 4 Vulcan's talk about Noise you need a lot beens to beat that Bill, anyway I sat and watched in ore at the 4 Vulcan's took off , Never ever forget that nearly 40 years agoNot the Vulcan raf beans were wicked
I stood underneath one as it flew over Preston Park in Brighton just after the Falklands war! Although it was at a normal height for flying over a town the ground shook under my feet. It was my first experience of seeing a Vulcan in flight and it took your words away!Try standing underneath one
No but they have a parts department or did have on Beevor street Lincoln, they outsource the parts from different companies, B&Q now sit on the old works, we was in Madeira about 5 years ago and in Funchal harbour was a ship with a 36 RB on the deck and it was unloading it's cargo, I do believe there are a lot of the RB still about .I remember as a wee laddie in Scotland watching them working and getting invited into the cab. The noise the machinery all moving very exciting. Ruston Bucyrus haven’t heard that for years are they still going?
