Landrover Defender

I thought Alan might be interested in this. Take from Facebook. It looks a little like a sawn off Airstream.

“After 2 years of work, we are almost there.
We started with a Land Rover Defender base vehicle which we fully stripped down before starting the build on a new Marshland galvanised chassis. We completed a full nut and bolt restoration, sending all running gear components to be reconditioned.
We then built a Habitation Pod on the back - the pod structure is made from an aluminium frame and skin, with each piece being handcrafted using an English wheel. Once the pod structure was complete, we insulated the interior with 60 mm of closed cell insulation.
The pod interior was then cladded using 20 mm strips of bamboo, all with bead and cove routed into each strip to allow the wood to follow the curved shape of the pod. We then made the furniture out of aluminium and again skinned in bamboo, and made the counter tops out of locally source oak.
The induction hob and a compressor fridge are powered by a Victron system, with a 200 ah Batter and 3 Kw inverter. This system is charged by the engine power as well as two 111 W solar panels which are on the roof.
The weight of the truck as it sits now is just over 2,500 kg, which we think is lighter than you might guess.
If you’re interested in seeing the wagon in real life, we are planning an open day in the near future and we will be taking the build to a few shows and events.

Elecsol battery experience FYI

Alan Cocks
 

Just for the record
(I know there is plenty online historically about the brand, and Elecsol batteries are no longer available etc.)

I have 2 Elecsol 110 leisure batteries connected in parallel.
After 14 years, one has failed. The failure mode was interesting.

The leisure battery use has always been very light because I have a solar panel and in most years, particularly recent years, a mains hook up was used.

On one occasion the batteries got very low indeed (van not in use then) when snow had covered the solar panel, otherwise it was probably near ideal conditions for battery life.

The failure mode symptom was overheating from a high (and slowly increasing) 'charge' current of around 10 amps. It was all in slow motion, over a few days. I noticed high-ish charge current, thought it was a bit odd, but could not see or notice anything wrong at the time, and did not think much more about trouble shooting. No smell of smoke etc (!)

A day or so later - our ether gas alarm went off! It was fitted years ago after a flurry of worry about anesthetic gas attacks. It uses 2 sounders and in the event seemed loud enough to lift the van off the ground by accoustic energy alone...

Note to self:
Position the gas alarm disable key in a visible place.
Lesson learned.

The impossible noise stopped when I moved the sensor and touched the gas alarm sensor component, but I still had no idea why it had been triggered. No perfumes or ether around etc.

However, up near the ceiling there was a slightly odd smell. I now know what boiling sulfuric acid smells like.

One battery, fortunately the easily accessible one, was too hot to touch and small jet of hot vapour (steam?) was coming out of I guess the pressure vent. It was unexpected, so it was good I only got a very slight burn, not bad enough to blister at all.

The battery has quick release connections, good choice, and I unplugged the mains hook up. The battery took hours before it was not too hot to touch, and all day to cool down more fully.

My guess so far is that an internal low resistance (short?) and an increasing 'charge' current made the battery into a 13Vx10A (130W) heating block.

Both batteries are now to be replaced of course, but I thought it was worth offering the experience for interest sake?

Re: Bailey Autograph - Factory installed TomTom SatNav

Trevor Mace
 

I have a 2018 X290 Camper and the factory installed SatNav is of very limited use. You cannot update the TomTom software and you certainly cannot enter any vehicle dimensions into it. I think it is a standard Fiat car radio that is designed for a Fiat 500 judging by the roads it sent me down in Cornwall!  I purchased a second hand TomTom 6000 - a 'Trucker' model that allows me to enter dimensions.

As for the radio you are probably better off fitting a third party radio that includes Apple or Android compatibility.

Hi,
I have a Bailey Autograph motorhome based on a Peugeot Boxer X290 chassis.  I bought it second hand and the only thing wrong with it is that the factory installed combined Radio/DVD/SatNav system has a cracked touch screen so I have been unable to fully use the SatNav function although it does seem to still work.  My question is: Does this pre-installed TomTom SatNav take account of the size of the motorhome or is it just set for the original Peugeot Boxer because I am considering having the screen repaired but if it's not really going to be useful, I might consider using an external SatNav.

Our current day society has been moving away from dedicated devices,

smart phones.  However with brexit, society is now seeing price
increases.  Everyone will now have to adapt and go back to previous
methods.  We don't stream as we consider that the extra energy
consumed is contributing to climate change.

Our motorhome has not been used for two years due to covid and a year
before that because of my wife's and my health situations.

Yesterday, we switched on the TV and satellite dish controller that
has not been used over those three years.  Fortunately they both still
work.

I have 100GB ON Vodafone  and Duncan 60GB on Smarty. He uses little. 

Mine will expire end November it was two years and I have been into my local shop and they said do not change your contract. When it’s up come in and chat to us  I have a business account

I'm with TescoMobile, which uses the O2 network.

When we're at home, we use very little non-WiFi internet, but we go away for 6-8 weeks at a time to Europe in our 'van, a couple of times a year, and then our usage increases significantly.

When my last contract expired, I waited to see what the different networks did with regard to roaming charges.  I saw that O2 and Tesco were not charging for roaming, so I took out a two year contract, hoping that if things changed I would at least get free roaming until the end of the contract.

As I had occasionally had to buy extra data while travelling (and 'extra' data is always expensive), I went high: 30 GB for me, and 12 GB for my wife, on a 'family discount'.  Also, when I had taken out a previous contract, I was given a free 6 month trial for Tesco Plus - this gives 10% off two shops per month plus a few other discounts, and *double data* on one phone account. 

The Tesco Plus now costs £7.99 per month, but it is not difficult to get two shops to total more than £80 in a month to recoup this, so it is effectively free (unless I'm out of the country for the whole month, which happens occasionally!).

So, for £20.50 per month we get 12GB plus 60GB, with free roaming in the 'Home from Home' countries.  I think this is pretty good value, especially if you use Tesco anyway.

Also OK with Plusnet Mobile - they are also no EU roaming charges.

Plus monthly charges are a lot lower and all on 30 day contracts - top get the good rates on O2 you need to sign for 24 months

I have unlimited calls and text plus 30Gb for £10 per month

Re: EU Roaming Charges

This is the current deal from 3. I suspect that it will be the same with Smarty and virtually the same with all the others.

For a fixed daily charge, set out below, our Advanced Plans allow you to use your UK allowance in any of our Go Roam destinations to contact a UK number (starting 01, 02, 03 or a standard UK mobile). You can also use your UK allowance in a Go Roam in Europe destination to make calls to standard landline or mobile numbers in other Go Roam in Europe destinations. Fair use policies apply - see page 21.
The daily charge to unlock your UK allowance:
Go Roam in Europe destinations - £2. Go Roam Around the World destinations - £5.
The daily charge will automatically be applied to your bill as soon as you make a chargeable event (such as your device accessing data services, or you make an outbound call or send a text). If we are unable to process your daily charge (such as you reaching your credit limit, or your account not being in good standing) you will be unable to unlock your UK allowance in the Go Roam destination.
It’s free to receive calls, texts, photo messages and video messages when in a Go Roam destination on our Advanced Plans.

In other words, it costs £2 per day in addition to it comes out of your own data allowance and it is charged automatically as soon as you use any data like when you try to navigate to the local supermarket on google maps

  • If your plan includes calls and texts, they work just like home. They’re unlimited with no extra fees.
  • Subject to our fair use limit, you can use up to 12GB of data each month. Data comes out your monthly allowance or data add-ons.
  • No hidden charges. No extra costs."
As I said, Smarty is part of Hutchison/Three.

Use your SMARTY plan anywhere in the EU

  • If your plan includes calls and texts, they work just like home. They’re unlimited with no extra fees.
  • Subject to our fair use limit, you can use up to 12GB of data each month. Data comes out your monthly allowance or data add-ons.
  • No hidden charges. No extra costs."
As I said, Smarty is part of Hutchison/Three.

I would be surprised if some enterprising person like carphone warehouse but from the south of Ireland wasn’t selling such sims to the English already.

A friend who has a house in Portugal but is not resident has been getting hassle from Vodafone for excessive use while abroad. He has just bought a Smarty sim with unlimited calls & texts and 60 GB data for £10/month and no limits to use abroad. Smarty is part of Hutchison/Three.
