Re: Hilux Relay- Indicators

Correction, that was tested in Jan 2016, but I tried it again and ..... the hazards are working again. The clue was that the hazard unit was working because the indicators were never faulty.

Re: Solar power help for the not so smart

An Engel 40L draws 2.8 Amps when it is running and set at 1°C. Lets say it is in about 35°C ambient temp and it runs for 30mins in each hour. So you will need 2.8 x 12 = 33.6 Amps in each 24 hours.

Chris, that question is never asked. Running and maintenance cost of a mid-sized gennie? Also probably the least 'green' solution. Lets say R100 fuel for each 4 hour loadshed it could come to say R1000 per month for 10 loadsheds and R12000 per year! can buy a lot of panels for that price.
