Not at all. That was all a wind up in true, Pink style ;)

Bit of a long shot but can people keep an eye out for one of our vans please? VW Transporter in AFF Livery - LJ16 VVN.

STOLEN IN Sheffield and the tracker & dash cam were disconnected within 2 miles (5 minutes or so) of it being nicked.

There is a reward for itís safe return.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Iím well aware that this is likely in a container or being stripped as we speak but worth a try.

Thanks Kevin.

Itís a 240V, 32A input. 7.2kW draw that will be plugged into the 10kW continuous (30kW peak) inverter.

We only need to run it for 30-45 minutes and, ideally, still have the engine running to trickle the batteries - but this is now not a simple option as they need to be 24V for the feed and the bridge needs to break for charging. I have seen this: https://www.yandina.com/troll2400info.htm as an option...

The generator option is a last resort as doesnít fit well with the other equipment fitted - plus thereís a H&S issue with the weight and noise of a generator big enough.

All that said, itís looking a lot like the generator may be the only real option... I was hoping someone was going to come up with a simple solution!

Right guys. Iím after some confirmation how to do this. Some background - I canít go into too much detail as this is ďtop secretĒ!

Looking to fit something that has a 7.2kW draw at 32A. Ideally I want to run this from a 10kW inverter instead of a generator but this needs a 24V input. Firstly, 2 x 100Ah batteries in series provides the 24V feed and should give 3 hours use... Yes?

By my reckoning this is relatively simple but I need someone to confirm - The batteries can be charged individually with split charge relays connected to each battery but the question is does the series link need to be isolated whenever the vehicle is running?

I thought I had this sussed out but have managed to confuse myself over the last few days, possibly because Iíve started overthinking it!

Failing that it looks like Iíll need to come up with another solution...

Any thoughts or advice gratefully received.

No idea ..... but how have you let someone put clip on weights on your wheel?  ???

 It's not a problem now as none of my wheels have anywhere to clip a weight to, but I always insisted they use stick on weights on the inside of the rim  ::)

Itís the battlebus... He doesnít love that ;)

Iíd be more concerned that itís a BMW  :-X ::) :D

In all seriousness, I would rather buy a 200k, 7 year old car than a 2000 mile 7 year old car.

If all the servicing is in line then I wouldnít worry too much... Modern cars are capable of starship mileages :y

What prices are you looking for to be collected as is?

Not really thought. One is a write off anyway, but does have lpg and Irmy stuff the other needs a patch welding in and brakes for an MOT - this one has a stainless exhaust.

Not really in a position to get rid yet as they are useful storage space but a sensible offer would take them, bearing mind scrap value.

The issue is, time is very much in demand at the moment. Not sure whether the effort is worthwhile or if Iíd rather just get the space back.  :-X

Just a question and in no way a for sale - that will come later if I decide to do it.

Iíve got 2 x 3.2 Elite Estates that are likely to go for scrap. Is there any point in taking stuff off? Any interest in an Irmscher Bodykit for an estate? Or Sportstars?

Wondering whether I can be arsed with stripping anything! :-X ::)

Funnily enough, Iím on the lookout for a new vehicle but likely to be a company motor and another pickup....

Hacking about the kind of mileage I expect to do a company motor (likely to be fully funded) means that something that drops into the ďcommercialĒ bracket for BIK but still has the ability to take the family is a no brainier.

Hope it treats you well Kevin :y

(Might try and see it in the flesh soon... Iím starting to find myself in the office regularly now :y)

You cant possibly have got 57 litres into a 45 litre tank.  ???

You can if itís over pressurised ;)

Although I agree that it sounds odd :-\
