Thank you for the note, yes it took a lot of emails, phone calls and chasing up. I'm still following up now too...

Cheers
Andy

I would like to extend my thanks to all who participated in our presence in Skillington.
Despite a damp/wet saturday and less than maximum attendance, it was a great do
The Series 2 Club did itself proud; George and his mobile cinema, the Cuthbertson (owned by a member who's name escapes me), lots of Area Reps who were on hand to answer queries and to entice punters to become members, Wendy Lowe who managed to get the Club stand decorative and organised (from a publicity and sales perspective) by emptying the bowels of their Dormobile and Wendy's handbag to produce bunting, sail banners, photos, magazines and a micro shop and, of course, Club Members who came and said hello and helped us have a great time
The Stand exhibits looked great with all their Fact Sheets which attracted a huge amount of interest from passers by - a real credit to Ian

Here's to the next !

Will keep trying over the next few days.

If you have had a flat battery more than a few times, the act of jump starting the vehicle will have knackered the battery.

I measured my P38 charging at over 100A, which will quickly knacker any battery.

Buy a new one. Then, if it goes flat in the future, charge it up with a proper charger, and then start the car.

Chris.

You shouldn't be lifting batteries at your age.

Buy a new battery at any Halfords and they'll fit it free. You have a 10% off discount coupon from the CSMA  :first

Consider a solar panel trickle charger - about £30 off ebay ???

No mains leads required.

Jump leads are yesterday's news  :shakeinghead
Everyone use these Li-ion power packs - take up far less space than jump leads and (almost) idiot proof.

Hi,

Solved! Called Britannia Rescue mid-afternoon, bloke arrived about an hour later, clutching a "sandwich box with a pair of crocodile clips". The Freelander fired instantly, less than a minute later. I ran the engine for a few minutes, switched off, then restarted without the booster. However, he told me to let it tick over for an hour.

The battery gave a reading of 11 volts, before being started, and 14 volts at tick-over.

Looking at the battery (huge), I would rather not lift it out. (My knees hurt). My 1927 model fuse box, (using real fuse wire) is high in the front corner of the second bedroom. Surely that should not have been allowed in a house built in 1984? Electricity and gas meters are in boxes, same as I built into my self-build, also in 1984, but in South Wales. I suppose I had better drag this house into the 19th Century, convert the consumer unit to MCBs, etc, and think about installing some sort of charger for a battery powered car, but where? Front corner of the bungalow, where it could serve three different cars, albeit one at a time?

My builder has just installed an exterior 13A socket on the back wall of the garage, to serve my electric rotary mower. It would be sensible to add a similar socket at the front of the garage. It's a PITA having to unroll a 12M reel of cable whenever I want power in either front or rear gardens, and now I have a "secret" 12M garden on the other side of the bungalow. I'm anticipating "words" when I tell my builder that a 2M gate is not wide enough for a caravan, not that I have a caravan. He's a lovely bloke, keeps trying to save us money, while I'm trying to add value to our
"Estate".  We have difficulty persuading him to present his accounts.

Did I mention that I've had my application for Attendance Allowance approved, but only for daytime.

PS. The whole of my secret garden is illuminated by a street lamp, despite the 2M hogh fence.
