Back in Blue

The inverter has made a welcome return from Holland where it was repaired by the manufacturer, Victron. After only a couple of weeks I have reinstalled it in the electrical cupboard. Here it is, lights lit properly again.

I have also rerouted the 240v from the Travelpower to bypass the inverter, direct to the cooker to try to avoid overloading the inverter. This means we can't use the cooker without the engine running, but this is pretty much the situation we were in before as you can't do more than boil the kettle once or twice before the batteries are flat if all the power is coming from them. For hot beverages after 8:00PM (BW byelaws prohibit the running of engines after this time) there will be a small electric kettle.
