Once again the campervan was pressed into service for my filming on Cruising The Cut, resulting in two car park stays, one in North Wales – where I introduced some Very Important Guests to the joys of narrowboating – and one in Milton Keynes. Plus I went to have my new lithium / inverter etc electrical system checked over by the professionals at Bluefix who are qualified and authorised Victron installers.
Continuing from the cliffhanger of the last video, this one sees me debug the problem which switched off the induction hob and go on to test the new inverter & battery setup with both the hob and an electric kettle.
While the new diesel heater ran for two hours as per the installation instructions, I didn’t want to leave it unattended so I turned my attention to cutting the new worktop including holes for the sink and tap (faucet).
In what is arguably my dullest video yet – and that really is saying something – I present a few minutes of me touching my hand to an exhaust pipe and saying “yes, it’s hot” as I do the first test run of the newly-installed Planar / Autoterm diesel heater in the campervan, as well as CO checks and making sure the van isn’t about to be set alight.
