    hi guys, those touring Italy and you at home, hope you are having better weather than we are getting in Greece.
    Thunder storms and torrential rain most of the week looking to continue for the weekend..Grrrrr

    Struggling with our onboard genny, a Mastervolt Whisper, it started first time after the winter layup then when we tried it a couple of days later it wouldn`t start, worked back on the fuel lines getting fuel all the way to the fuel soleniod, it appeared the mechanical fuel pump wasn`t pumping so took that off and had it checked at a specialist, it was cleaned and deemed ok, so now have fuel upto the injector, still won`t fire up, injector removed and checked that is ok, cleaned out the exhaust now thinking of taking the head off but checking for spares before going any further, non in Greece have to order straight from Holland. double Grrr.

    Also found out the fuel sender has packed up so got to order one of those, have to say the motorhome is so much more easier to live with than the boat.

    We are at the thinking positive stage....:thumb:

    magic umbrella

    Yes I know it`s lovely back in the UK. I`m soooo pleased for you all :RollEyes:

    I now actually have a Magic Umbrella, if I take it with me it doesn`t rain. :thumb::thumb:
    If I leave it on the boat it pours down :Doh:

    Just call me lucky Rob....

    Now then how about installing one of those lovely big Yellow Generators on the boat instead of this big usless diesel..

    What are they called agin...:Rofl1:
